52 LIKES and a Contest

Medeia Sharif is a talented and prolific writer. I am so pleased to call her a friend and to share in the release of her new book, just launched on January 16. I already have it on my Kindle, and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

52 LIKES by Medeia Sharif

Cover Reveal, Evernight Teen, 2015

After a brutal rape and near-murder, Valerie wants to get past feelings of victimhood from both the assault and her history of being bullied. She’s plagued by not knowing the identity of her rapist and by the nasty rumors in school about that night. Valerie follows clues from ghostly entities, past victims of the rapist-murderer, contacting her through a social media site—why do all of their eerie photos have 52 likes under them? Their messages are leading her to the mystery man, although he’ll put up a fight to remain hidden.

Medeia, this sounds like a great plot line. Good luck with all your writing. Although it sounds as if you're making your own luck

Hi Carol,

You are not imagining this! I'm actually here because my silly, slow computer finally got me here.

The adorable Medeia receives my hearty congrats for her latest endeavour.

Thanks for this, Carol and for all the other notations.

Gary :)

Congratulations, Medeia! I really like the sound of this story and I always love "ghostly entity" stories, so this one is officially now on my to-read list.

Like those who came before me I will say congratulations to Medeia
Great minds think alike, but I have a feeling you and I aren't the only ones promoting this book on our blogs. I hope a LOT of 'em are!

As I responded to you on my blog, Happy Valentine's to you, too, dear lady. (So where's my darned chocolate???)
