Cover Reveal: Twelve Steps by Veroncia Bartles

Twelve Steps

by Veronica

Release Date:

Book Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Andi is tired of being
a second-class sibling to perfect sister Laina. There in Laina's shadow, Andi's
only noticeable feature is her pretty awesome hair. And even that is eclipsed
by Laina's perfect everything else.

When Andi’s crush asks her to fix him
up with Laina, Andi decides enough is enough and devises
a twelve-step program to wrangle the spotlight away from
Laina. After all, great hair must count for something.

Step 1: Admit she’s powerless to change
her perfect sister, and accept that her life really, really sucks. OK,
maybe that's two steps in one.

Step 4: Make a list of her good
qualities besides great hair. There have got to be at least three
good qualities, right?

Step 7: Demand attention for more
than just her shortcomings, and break out of her shell. Easier said that done,
but worth the effort in the long-run. 

When a stolen kiss from her crush
ends in disaster, Andi finds that her prince isn’t as charming as she'd hoped,
and realizes she may need a new program--perhaps with less steps!

As cracks in Laina’s flawless fa├žade
begin to show, the sisters work together to find a spotlight big enough for
both to shine.

About the

As the second
of eight children and the mother of four, Veronica Bartles is no stranger to
the ups and downs of sibling relationships. (She was sandwiched between the
gorgeous-and-insanely-popular older sister and the too-adorable-for-words
younger sister.) She uses this insight to write stories about siblings who
mostly love each other, even while they’re driving one another
crazy.   When she isn’t writing or getting lost in the pages of her
newest favorite book, Veronica enjoys knitting fabulous bags and jewelry out of
recycled plastic bags and old VHS tapes, sky diving (though she hasn’t actually
tried that yet), and inventing the world’s most delectable cookie recipes.

is Veronica Bartles's first novel.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it.

All of this is from the perspective ele…
