Breaking the Spine to highlight books we are greatly anticipating the release of and I can tell you, I have been waiting for this one since I started blogging in 2010.
I met Shah through our common bond of Bipolar Disorder and then she had all these weekly memes I was a part of and finally she got serious and is getting ready to release her first book. Without further ado....
An unusual young woman and fledgling journalist, Luna has various restrictive oddities, all of which prevent any kind of physical intimacy. Abusive parents take pleasure in Luna’s misery and isolation, yet Luna strives to make them proud, to finally earn their elusive love – something she craves almost as much as the painless touch of a lover.
When she learns of a tragic story involving the kidnap of baby Esta, she jumps at the chance to investigate, dragging her Shadows along for the ride within the murky depths of her mind.
Meanwhile, a dark stranger visits Luna’s dreams and stalks her reality. In lieu of the real thing, their intimate moments excite rather than terrify. Nestled within his presence, she begins to sense an urgent message of danger – a message she struggles to interpret, until they finally meet….
Her investigations lead Luna to a vibrant seaside town, hiding copycat aliens and an underworld of Supernaturals. Here, she comes face-to-face with her own, terrifying identity. Confronted with life-changing decisions and the harshest of truths, Luna questions her sanity, searches for logic, feeling deceived by both.
Is Luna trapped in a newfound supernatural world, or within her own delusions? And will anyone care enough to save her?
The publishing date, if all goes according to plan is to have it out by the end of this year 2012! But you can always check Shah's website for information. Contacts are below. This book is considered New Adult, not YA.
“Will finding Esta be the beginning of Luna’s
journey, or the end?”
This is a totally awesome Trailer!
In November of 2010 Shah found herself in Dubai, having moved from the UK for her husbands new job (he flies big planes). With no job or friends, she had a lot of time on her hands and decided to take the advice of other online writers and bloggers who she’d met through webook.com, to build a blog of her own. Her first blog, WordsinSync was born, which became Shah Wharton’s WordsinSync. Through blogging she met many authors and readers, many have helped her to put imagination into words, not only via poetry, but also short stories and now novels, learning the craft from the awesome advice of her online peer-group, word by word. She recently published a short story called The Dead Party – a political satire featuring zombies, and two poems published in anthologies.
Her passions include blogging, writing, reading, movies, photography and image enhancement, music, theatre, travel, and fine dining. Her newest passion is a huge German Shepherd puppy - Bobby is both stimulating and demanding.
Her favourite genres include anything dark with fangs and/or that will make her squirm or jump or scream out an expletive. She is an avid Kindle abuser and adores the indie writing community and being part of the e-publishing revolution.
