My Critique Partner’s Debut!

My critique partner Michelle Mason will be launching her debut YA novel a week from today! What is a critique partner, you ask? Well, critique partners are fellow writers with whom you swap chapters or manuscripts. I’ve lost count how many Michelle and I have exchanged, but I know we’ve read several manuscripts for each other over the years, offering feedback and brainstorming help, as well as consoling one another when the inevitable rejections stream in and celebrating our victories together. In sum, critique partners are invaluable. And now, after so many years of cheering for each other, I am excited to celebrate her and her book! The title is Your Life Has Been Delayed.

Here’s the blurb:

Past and present collide in a captivating YA debut about a girl who takes off on a flight and lands . . . twenty-five years later.

When Jenny boards her flight back from New York, the biggest things on her mind are applying to Columbia and reuniting with her brand-new boyfriend. But when she and the other passengers disembark in St. Louis, they’re told that their plane disappeared-twenty-five years ago. 

Doesn’t it sound awesome? (Spoiler alert: it is!) Oh yeah, and for anyone watching the Netflix series Manifest, this is totally the YA version!

Please join Michelle at one of her book launch events. You can purchase the book, preferably from Michelle’s local independent bookseller, The Novel Neighbor. Order a signed copy of Your Life Has Been Delayed.
