Spotlight Author Margo Bond Collins

To support Rave Reviews Book Club, which seeks to promote author members, my post today features the club’s third spotlight author.  Rave Reviews Book Club is a new online club for authors and readers. As the first Spotlight Author I experienced firsthand the incredible promotional benefits of membership. I met so many fellow authors during my time in the spotlight as well as bloggers with something important to say, many of whom I am now following. Don’t miss this opportunity to join a young organization as it takes root and grows.

Rave Reviews Book Club – “SPOTLIGHT” Author, Margo Bond Collins            

Spotlight author logo2CONGRATULATIONS to Margo Bond Collins, Rave Reviews Book Club “SPOTLIGHT” AUTHOR of the week!

Margo’s recently released “Fairy, Texas” on February 4, 2014.

Check out the following synopsis AND a special “sneak peek” excerpt!

(Our RRBC interview questions with Margo can be found at the bottom of the page.)

Fairy, Texas. A small town like any other.

Laney Harris didn’t want to live there. When her mother remarried and moved them to a town where a date meant hanging out at the Sonic, Laney figured that “boring” would have a whole new meaning. A new stepsister who despised her and a high school where she was the only topic of gossip were bad enough. But when she met the school counselor (and his terminal bad breath), she grew suspicious. Especially since he had wings that only she could see. And then there were Josh and Mason, two gorgeous glimmering-eyed classmates whose interest in her might not be for the reasons she hoped. Not to mention that dead guy she nearly tripped over in gym class.

She was right. Boring took on an entirely new dimension in Fairy, Texas.

Excerpt:

FairyTexasCover

I was partnered with Mason Collier, the infamous football-playing, cute, but possibly black-magicky friend-of-Bartlef I’d heard about at lunch. I looked around and saw a guy waving at me from across the room. He was looking at me kind of like he was hungry and maybe I was breakfast. It worried me.

Still, at least I hadn’t been paired up with Kayla. It could have been much worse.

“Okay,” Carlson said. “Go ahead and meet with your partner and plan your strategy.”

Mason and I stood up at the same time and walked toward each other. I was so busy making sure I didn’t trip over any desks that I didn’t see Kayla headed toward me until she was right in front of me. And then she leaned in close to my face and hissed at me. “Don’t get too cozy. He’s way out of your league.”

I rolled my eyes and moved around her without responding. Three days. Three days I’d been in Fairy, and already I had an enemy. And I lived in her house. My life kept getting better and better.

Mason and I met in the middle of the room. Kayla and her friends huddled nearby, watching us.

“Hey,” Mason said.

“Hey.” Nice, neutral word, hey. Can mean almost anything. Or nothing.

“So,” he said, “where do you want to start?”

He was asking me? Where I wanted to start was away from here, where there weren’t any dead boys to trip over.

So much for that option.
