Last August, I published a tween/young adult novel, Memoirs of an Ordinary Girl: The Middle-ish Ages. Then the school year started and I did little to promote it. Now that it is summer and I no longer have the doom of an impending school year ahead (since I quit my day job), I am working towards getting the word out again on my book. And I am working on the sequel. The protagonist, Drew, must move on and join those who have lived in the misery of being a freshman.
Who would like this book?
Seriously, the target audience is middle school girls; however, many adults have read it and enjoyed reliving their awkward middle school moments as well. It’s a humorous tale of a girl figuring out who she really is, and it’s set at the cusp between the ’80s and ’90s, so if you enjoy nostalgia, give it a try.
I’m also trying out a new summer pricing of $2.99, down from $4.99. This is far less expensive than most alternative forms of “entertainment” out there these days (anybody attempt to go to a movie any time recently?), so take a sneak peak, buy it, read it, and tell all your friends about it, especially if they have preteen girls. I want to build up the proper age of followers as well.
