Foster & Allan Lacrosse T-shirts!

The shirt you see here is an exact replication of the one mentioned in Three Sixty (the one Paxton is wearing during one of he and Audrina's heated arguments, given to him by Owen). Get your own and help me make my goal of selling 10 in two weeks! There are lots more designs where this came from, so if we make this goal I'll be posting more!

Charleigh McAfee - The New Characters in NINETY DEGREES

Meet Charleigh!

Charleigh McAfee doesn't appreciate herself. She's used to doing things on her own and getting her way. Her best friend, Silas, has always been able to understand her, but their connection frays when she comes across a transfer student at Chattanooga Prep. Her interest in the new kid also stimulates an interest in an old friendship - one she didn't think had a romantic future. Unfortunately, her new obsession with finding love leads to heartbreak, but out of it all she might discover that what she does matters.

Foster & Allan Lacrosse T-shirts!

Guess what? You can now buy official Small Circles merch! How is that? I'm starting a campaign through Teespring.com! Here's how it works!

All you have to do is visit teespring.com/smallcircles and click "buy it now"! This locks you in as one of the 10 sales I have to reach by May 12th. You won't be charged unless I reach the goal of 10, so you aren't obligated to buy the shirt if we don't reach the campaign goal in time. But if we do sell at least 10 shirts by May 12th, all of the proceeds will go towards funding my travels this summer and fall as part of my book festival tour! You're help and support means the world! I hope you all enjoy! This is the first shirt of many to come if this is successful!

Thank you!

It's been a while since I probably thanked you all for being so amazing! I don't want this to sound like a sales pitch, but a lot of you have been asking me about attending different events lately and I wanted to explain my situation. Because I am an independent author, my ability to travel and participate in these festivals, book events, etc. relies solely on whether or not I sell books. Whenever you buy one of my books, the money goes straight to anything that book is involved with (marketing, promotion, book signings, attending events). So it means the world to me whenever I see that you've purchased a copy or you're planning to, because when you do you're helping me live my dream. I don't have an agent and I'm not signed with a major publishing house. I've done everything on my own since I was 17 and it's been hard, but it's so worth it when I read your comments and hear your reviews. Knowing you love my books makes me want to keep doing this for the rest of my life!

First 3 Pages of NINETY DEGREES

Here's a little sneak preview of Ninety Degrees: A Precursor to Small Circles (5.20.14)

If there were two things Silas McFuller knew about the world, it was that life is not always fair, but everything happens for a reason. From a very young age, he’d come to know that despite all of the trials and tribulations one must go through in order to survive, good things normally came out of the bad. Even the worst of things proved to have some sort of purpose behind them. For seventeen years, he trusted that nature’s forces had the best intentions, and so far, he hadn’t been proven wrong.
When Silas was fifteen, he broke his arm jumping on a trampoline, thus preventing him from being able to pitch the rest of baseball season. He eventually came to understand that the time he’d spent away from his favorite sport had allowed him to pursue another passion. He picked up photography and spent time noticing the little things. It was this that led to Silas meeting his best friend Charleigh McAfee.
Charleigh was a free spirit, as most would describe her. A true rebel without a cause. Her bleach-blonde hair was accented with a different pop of color each week, and she covered the soles of her shoes in writing with lyrics from her favorite songs or quotes from her favorite books. She wasn’t the skinniest of girls, but not in an unhealthy way. She had curves for days and her broad shoulders made her appear wider than she actually was. Secretly, Charleigh wasn’t comfortable in her skin, but she never showed it. Her positive attitude reached as high as the sky, and it rubbed off on those around her, especially Silas.
Silas McFuller was not a free spirit. He tried to be at the best of times, but his true nature was very much stuck. He longed for the freedom Charleigh carried in her charisma, but honestly, Silas cared too much. He had a secret, too – one not even his best friend knew just yet – and it was this secret that made his high school experience much different than the rest.
Silas and Charleigh attended Chattanooga Preparatory School. It is, along with it’s sister school Foster and Allan Academy, a very prestigious establishment. It is also considered the lesser of the two, due to rumor that only the students whose families can’t afford boarding are sent there. The school houses grades 9-12, and Silas and Charleigh had first met their freshman year. Silas had recently moved from North Carolina, and Charleigh, she’d been a part of the area since she first learned how to breathe. She had taken it upon herself to show him the ropes and familiarize him with the area she’s called home for so long. It didn’t take much for the two to find a common ground. They both enjoyed the arts – to be fair, Silas had only just picked up on this hobby – and Charleigh bragged about her marvelous works of art scattered about the town. Her most potent form of expression was through her murals. Graffiti would be the proper term, of course, but she spoke of them like they were to be compared to Michelangelo’s renderings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Each masterpiece told a story, either of her or someone she’d known in her fifteen years of life. After that day, Silas secretly hoped that he could make an impact like that on someone in his life. Enough so that he could inspire a masterpiece. He’d always been a hopeless romantic, and leaving an impression that huge meant what he did mattered. It happened for a reason.
Now, the friends were starting their final year at CPS. They were seniors, at last. It had seemed like a long awaited journey for the both of them. They’d gone through a lot, but they still had one more year, and there were plenty of things they hadn’t faced yet.
