Sandra over at The Library of Clean Reads gave DRAWN TO YOU a great review! Stop by and have a look! http://libraryofcleanreads.blogspot.com/
It was a well-timed review as I had originally planned to have TRACK TWO: FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT (book two in the Arts-Angels series for tweens) out today. April 22nd is an important date in DRAWN TO YOU, after all. But unforeseen events in my life have pushed it back just a bit, and the book should be out by June 22nd. In the meantime, here is a peak at the cover! I hope you like it. Prepare for a battle of the bands!
Today is the book birthday of book one in the Arts-Angels series: DRAWN TO YOU. Since this series centers around music, I call each book a “track” instead. 🙂 I guess you can say the book “drops” today!
When Gina Santiago, a thirteen-year-old “Nuyorican” with rock star dreams, is accepted into the New York Academy of Arts and Talents for art instead of music, she’s crushed. To make matters worse, the student body is divided into “schollies” (students on scholarship, like her) and “dollies” (rich kids with “dollars”).
But Gina discovers that there is one thing that brings schollies and dollies–and dancers, singers, actors, and musicians–together: music! Maybe she can make her dreams come true after all…
You can order a copy online on Amazon or Barnes and Noble:
In other news, this is a very “angelic” day in other ways! It’s “Michelmas” or the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel (as well as St. Gabriel and Raphael–also Archangels)!
And oddly enough, tonight’s episode of Doctor Who also features angels: The Weeping Angels. Unlike St. Michael, these are bad–very bad angels. And they will mark the departure of the Doctor’s trusty companions, Rory and Amy. 😦 But I can’t wait to see it!
Angels galore today!
