ABNA Quarter Finalist--Elena Solodow

Yes, you read it rightt--My critique partner Elena Solodow is a quater finalist in the Amazon Breakout Novel Award contest.

My PhotoI've read the novel.

I  know the author.

And yes, you should be jealous becuase both are spectacular.

Quick witted dialogue.

Rich Characters.

An overall smooth read.

A premise to die for.

Well, you shouldn't take my word for it, go check out the free Kindle download HERE or download the FREE Kindle app for PC or MAC HERE.

From Elena's Blog over at You're Write, Except when You're Rong:

The powers aren’t the problem – it’s Left-Hander.

Sixteen-year-old Thea Vans has always hidden her ability to heal or infect with a touch, but when a voice in her head named Left-Hander steals the powers, Thea’s more worried about giving someone the Black Death than her GPA. Unfortunately for Thea, Left-Hander prefers hurting to healing.

Thea hoped to graduate without a criminal record and keep her best friend Sully in the dark about her freak status, but that was before Left-Hander gave the Queen Bee a coughing fit, the attendance lady heart palpitations, and a dose of projectile vomiting to the field hockey team. Now the cops want her for questioning and Sully’s trying to set her up with a good exorcist. 

It’s time to figure out who – or what – Left-Hander is, where the powers come from, and how Thea can get her life back. But the soldiers of Life and Death find her first. In their secret, war-ravaged world, having both powers means Thea’s either a threat to eliminate, or a weapon to exploit.

It would be easier to run, except Sully is injured. Only the soldiers of Life can help. If Thea pretends to be as pure as them, maybe she and Sully will make it out alive.

As long as Left-Hander cooperates. 
If you don't love Elena already, you should. Spread the word and support your fellow blogger and my fab critique partner.
Happy Reading --Elena's excerpt. Happier Writing.

I might be jealous - except she writes YA and me women's fiction :)

But I'd still be just as pleased for her if she made it in General Fiction. Its awesome to see someone rewarded for their ideas and hard work.

Congrats Elana. You deserve every moment in the spot light. I hope you make it through the next round also.
