Guest Post Day: Blogathon, Day 12 & ROW80 Update

Today is the Guest Post Exchange Day for the WordCount Blogathon

I couldn't get my act together to coordinate a guest post exchange with a fellow Blogathoner. But, I did get someone to guest post.

Welcome Reagan Cooper, the main character of my young adult novel, Chasing Memories, which was just released a few weeks ago. She's 17 and still suffering from the loss of her little brother to a horrific accident.


Chasing Answers

A year ago I was eager to go to prom, graduate, and head to college. I had the boyfriend all the girls wanted, and I was one of the most popular girls at school.

Then, I lost my brother.

That night still gives me nightmares. Not knowing for sure what happened to him has cost me so many things: my relationship with my parents, my planned future, and even pieces of myself.

But, there's hope. Although I say we lost my brother that night, I do not believe he's dead. And even though I'll never be the same, I'm discovering a new me. A stronger me. I am determined to find out what happened to both of us that night.

Don't feel sorry for me. For everything I've lost, I've also gained things I never imagined. And I think I have a strong imagination. My new friends and I will stop at nothing to find answers. 

As my mom used to always say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. 


I hope you enjoyed getting to know Reagan. 

Name a character, from a book or movie, that you'd love to see write a post on his/her creator's blog. 

For me, it would be either Trudi Montag from Stones from the River or Liesel from The Book Thief.

For my ROW80 friends... my house is empty. Now more than ever, I need to throw myself into something. I figure Book 2 will be the perfect thing. Looking forward to having more specific goals for the next Round. Hope you are all kicking butt on goals!

I'd like to hear from Jacob Reckless from the series by the same name. How cool! WRITE ON!
