For Day 2 of the 17 FIRST KISSES release day countdown, I have blurbs and a giveaway for you!
When we discussed blurbs, and my editor asked if I had anyone in mind who wrote in my genre, I made a list. A short one, but a bold one. These were women I admired. Some of them I had been reading for years, and were we really going to ask them to read my little book???
I was so nervous, I even sent along this disclaimer:
It isn't so much a realistic list as it is a list of authors I love/wish I could be like/shamelessly fangirl :)
I wasn’t expecting much. But then a blurb came in. And another. And then there were five (FIVE!) of them, and I was thrilled and ecstatic and doing
awesome terrible dance moves
around my living room.
I’m so excited to share these blurbs for 17 FIRST KISSES with you! And I’m giving away one book from each author, plus a copy of 17 FIRST KISSES below, so you should enter!
"With perfect pitch, 17 First Kisses delivers laughter, tears, and hopefulness in equal measure. A sincere, emotional journey that will stay with readers long after the last kiss."
- SARAH OCKLER, bestselling author of #scandal and Twenty Boy Summer
"An insightful story about how first kisses, friendship, and family shape who we become."
-CORRINE JACKSON, author of If I Lie and the Sense Thieves trilogy
“Yes, there's plenty of kissing (awesome kissing), but this story's true highlight is the complex and real friendship between Claire and Megan. 17 First Kisses is a sunny and thoughtful debut with characters you won't soon forget.”
- LINDSEY LEAVITT, author of Sean Griswold’s Head and The Chapel Wars
“Full of the best ingredients: savory and sweet at the same time!”
- TERRA ELAN McVOY, author of Pure and Being Friends with Boys
“Hilarious and heartbreaking with a pitch perfect voice, 17 First Kisses is completely crush worthy. Claire is one of my favorite narrators since Ruby Oliver (The Boyfriend List).”
-KARA TAYLOR, author of the Prep School Confidential series
Kara also included a fake blurb that makes me love her even more :)
Fake blurb: I devoured it in one sitting like one of Megan's soufflés!
