A few weeks ago I decided to join the amazingly creative and wonderfully insatiable community that is Wattpad. A few weeks ago I knew absolutely nothing about the social media site and today I still know close to nothing but what I do know is that Wattpad isn’t just a place for teenagers to share and consume fan-fiction but it’s a place where reading and writing are experiencing a magnificent renaissance. Not only are young people seeking out words but they’re being inspired to create their own. They’re learning how important that is, how important they are, and through this self-expression they’re not only falling in love with reading in an entirely new way but they’re falling in love with the very act of creating. It’s an absolutely thrilling time to be a writer and if you are, Wattpad is definitely the place to be. I’m still only a few weeks into the experience and I’m sure I’ll be blogging a lot about Wattpad in the future but for now I just wanted to let everyone know that the first few chapters of my new novel, The Girl In Between, are NOW ONLINE! That’s right, Free Chapter Friday has officially been revamped and each week on Friday and Saturday nights I’ll be posting new chapters on Wattpad from my upcoming series as well as excerpts from my backlist!
Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.
But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.
