PARALLELS FELIX WAS HERE Review
An Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology
Now I have a freebie for you. Have you ever looked back at your first published novel? What did/do you think about it? I want to share my first novel with you.
Secrets I Have Kept, YA mystery, was first published in 2000 by an e-publisher. I have a disc of it. A year later, the publisher went out of business. In 2006, another publisher turned it into a paperback, and then 2010 the e-book edition came out. So it's been around awhile, but I've paid little attention it. Too busy with new stories. I'm trying to do better.
One rainy spring night, on a dark Texas back road, sixteen-year-old Jennifer Barret's father, Sam, a molecular biologist at Orion Laboratories, is kidnapped. Armed with nothing more than her own courage, a phone number on a candy wrapper, and her loyal dog, Chopin, she begins a desperate attempt to rescue him. On the way to her neighbor Mitch Pearson's house for help, Jen meets Casey Christopher, a runaway on a quest of his own, to find his father who walked out on Casey and his mother thirteen years earlier. As they attempt to piece together the clues that keep turning up in unusual places, a chilling secret is revealed.
Jen's father fumbled in his shirt pocket, pulled out a crinkled candy wrapper, and scribbled some numbers on it. He folded the paper into her hand. "Get to a phone," he said. "Call this number. If no one answers, call Lani." He kissed her on the forehead, leaned across the seat of the pickup, and pushed open the door. "Now, get out of here."
"What about you?"
"Don't worry about me. Get help. And don't look back. No matter what. Understand?"
Secrets I Have Kept is free until the end of July at Smashwords. Here's the link. Enjoy.
