I'm excited to share with you, Chasing Memories by the very talented, Tia Silverthorne Bach. I was lucky enough to beta read an early version of Chasing Memories a few months ago and immediately saw great things ahead for Tia. It's an exciting and well written YA book that weaves in the paranormal with elements from the human psyche--a nice twist for the genre. And check out her amazing book cover designed by Jo Michaels--isn't it great?! 

"E, get out of the way! You're distracting from the cover."

"Oops. Sorry. I can't help it, just look at those eyes! And did you notice the symbol in the letter 'g' of the title?"

"Yes, I did."

"Well I know what it is, but I'm not telling you! You'll have to read the book to find out." 

"Looking forward to it. But can you get off the screen somehow or maybe duck down behind the book cover so we can get a better look at it?"

"Ok. Is this better?"

"Perfect. Now stay."


Expected Publication Date: June 10, 2013

Below, is a little more about Chasing Memories to wet your appetite, and some information about the author, Tia Silverthorne Bach. If you don't already know Tia, check out her site over at Depression Cookies. She's a talented writer and an award-winning published author. Plus, she's a genuinely nice person who simply loves the craft. I wish Tia tons of success with Chasing Memories!

About Chasing Memories (Tala Prophecy, Book 1):

There isn’t another way; not now. The others are coming. I can’t let them have you…

Seventeen-year-old Reagan has a problem: She can’t remember what happened the night her brother was taken. Now, the dreams haunting her from the incident are becoming more intense by the day. All the while, the lines between what’s real and what’s a product of her paranormal-obsessed mind are becoming blurred.

Is she losing her mind or has she just stepped into a world she thought only existed in books? 

Caught in a web of worried parents, competing boys, Wiccan relatives, protective amulets, and psychiatrist babble, Reagan must determine the truth before it’s too late.
