FLAWED is here!

Happy Black Friday, everyone! As promised, the ebook of FLAWED is live on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I’m so completely in awe of the response to the book so far. Thank you to all the bloggers who devoured the ARCs immediately and wrote what have to be the most fantastic emails and reviews ever!

Want a taste of the book? My publisher has posted an excerpt HERE.

What people are saying…

“Intense, dark, painful, wrenching and stunning, FLAWED is a fabulous debut that dances in the gray areas in the most perfect of ways. This book is one that will leave readers so completely twisted, and utterly drained emotionally by the time the gamut is over.”
A Good Addition

“This book shattered me into a million pieces. It’s beautiful and intense and earth shattering. Flawed takes love and twists it into something deadly.”
Shortie Says

“Beautiful and devastating all wrapped in one heart shattering, soul moving book. Flawed broke me, crushed me whole and devoured my every being. Kate Avelynn created a book so powerful, so gut wrenching.. nothing will ever be the same.”
Words, Pages, and Books

Flawed was one of the best debuts I’ve read, and everyone who reads this book will fall in love with the chemistry between the characters and the intense plot.”
Stuck in YA Books

“An extremely powerful story that’s impossible to classify, Flawed is a book that is compulsively readable despite its depth. There are some books you know you’ll never forget – for me, this is one of them.”
– USA TODAY bestselling author Cari Quinn

“Gorgeously written, achingly bittersweet, FLAWED addresses the deeply complex nature of abuse and its heartbreaking effects on a family.”
Christa Desir, author of FAULT LINE (Simon Pulse, 2013)

Darkly moving, expertly written, FLAWED grabs you by the heart from the first page and doesn’t let go.
New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde



T-minus 3 days and counting…until FLAWED!

The wait is finally over.

Whether you’re planning to hit the sales, avoid the swarms of crazed shoppers altogether, or need an intense book to distract you from your turkey and pumpkin pie coma, I have a Black Friday treat for you. FLAWED releases in ebook this Friday, November 23rd, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

The Cover:

The Blurb:

Sarah O’Brien is alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago—James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, she’s watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, she’ll give it freely.

Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.

Sam Donavon has been James’s best friend—and the boy Sarah’s had a crush on—for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows she’s in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided he’s going to save her. Neither of them realize James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that he’s not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact…

When—and where—can you grab a copy?

  • The ebook version of FLAWED will be available on Amazon and B&N exclusively for the first week or two, with the distributor listing it in all the usual places (both here and abroad) after the initial launch.
  • We anticipate the print book hitting bookstore shelves in December or January. As soon as I have the exact date, I’ll update my book page and tweet about it.
  • Afraid you’ll miss the update? Stop by your local B&N and order your copy at the counter—they’ll email you as soon as your copy is in stock. You can also hit up one of the online retailers and pre-order your copy there. I recommend The Book Depository, who currently has the book on sale for only $7.49!

Everyone has been so awesome about the wait and our decision to move the book from summer to the fall season. Now that release day is almost here, I’m excited to share the book with readers. I can’t thank you guys enough for all the support and enthusiasm you’ve shown me and FLAWED these last few months, and for voting in the contest that won me this fantastic cover. While I know the book won’t be for everyone, I’m glad to have found such a fabulous community of readers, bloggers, and friends. Hope to see you all on the blog tour later this year!

I have NEWS!!!

And holy crap, is it news!

My dark, contemporary YA romance, FLAWED, has sold to Entangled Teen! The book releases July 2012, and will be edited by the fantastic Liz Pelletier, who also edited OBSIDIAN, TOUCH, and HUSHED. I still can’t believe my debut ended up somewhere this phenomenal. Have you seen their covers? Is it possible to die of luck??

So what comes next? Edits. But also, we get to reveal the cover and the blurb! I’m told both will happen sometime next week, possibly as part of one of those mammoth cover reveals EP is so good at, and possibly including an excerpt (eeee!!), so be watching for more info on that. I’ve seen my cover, guys, and I love my cover. Again with the dying of luck!

Now if only I could stop jumping up and down long enough to finish this website…
