The time has finally arrived, y’all!
Exactly two years, 1 week, and 4 days after The Crush‘s release, The Fall is at last available for all the lovely readers of the world! 🙂
*Victory screech!* (If you know where that’s from, comment down below.) XD
Let’s get to celebrating this thang!
First, Check Out The Fall’s Paperback Cover *Heart Eyes*
I ended up not sharing The Fall‘s paperback cover with y’all during The Fall‘s cover reveal post last month, because I had not yet sent my sister (who designs all my covers) the spine dimensions. However, what better time to share it than now, when I can tempt you to add this little beauty onto your bookshelf?! 😉
HOW. GORGEOUS. IS. THIS????? My sister is amazing. ❤
Now for the *Main Attraction*…
When you’ve lost all you’ve desperately sought to keep, why bother hoping for a second chance?
With her pent up faith in love unraveling, former hopeless romantic Emery Brooks is a shell of the girl who once craved a love story that mirrored her grandparents’ fifty-year marriage. Taking all efforts to guard her heart, she isolates herself from everything she’s ever loved, including her music and faith, now battling the same cynicism she worked so hard to protect Sawyer from.
When Emery is asked to post the video for the song she and Sawyer wrote online, her first instinct is to resist. No one understands their story. No one can relate to what they’ve gone through. Grief should not be publicized.
Resistance proves to be futile, as the video plunges Emery into a world of new possibilities. Will Emery succumb to her stubborn tendencies and avoid all risks, or learn to leap again into the comfort of God’s arms, despite uncertainty?
Nicholas Sparks meets contemporary YA in this tear-jerking continuation of The Ballad of Emery Brooks trilogy. Fans of A Walk to Remember will appreciate this throwback to timeless romance, along with the themes of overcoming hardships and learning the basis of faith.
The Fall is officially available now at all eBook retailers, and in paperback on Amazon! The book will also be available at Amazon’s Expanded Distribution websites (Barnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million) soon!
If you’d like to order a copy of The Fall, all available retailers are listed at the link below. Happy reading, Arrowheads, and thank you so much for your continued support!
Now, you may be thinking, “Well, The Fall sounds cool and all, but I haven’t read The Crush yet.”
Well, have no fear, my friend! Because The Crush‘s eBook is currently on sale for just $0.99!
Never settle for anything less.
A combination hopeless romantic and old soul trapped in a teenager’s body, closet musician Emery Brooks wonders if she’ll ever find a love as timeless as her grandparents’. Fear of judgment and social alienation due to her older brother’s past mistakes render her incapable of writing a love song. Still, Emery holds fast to the ideals her Grandma Adeline instilled in her from a young age, vowing to allow God to handwrite her love story, to never settle for anything less.
That is, until love cynic Sawyer Alston enters her world. Broken by the wrath of his parents’ failed marriage, Sawyer has been uprooted from everything he’s ever known and now sees love as a void of empty promises. When Emery and Sawyer meet due to their mothers’ rekindled friendship, Emery soon realizes she’s in over her head.
For, despite her resistance, her first crush, her first glimpse at love, involves a boy who doesn’t believe in love at all.
A tale of love and loss reminiscent of old-fashioned values with a bit of sass and music mixed in, The Crush is perfect for fans of A Walk to Remember and This Lullaby.
