INTERIM Book Description

I didn't want to wait for the cover reveal to share the description for INTERIM. I feel that because the subject matter is sooo controversial, I might as well share what the story's about now so you have lots of time to decide if it's something you think you'd want to tackle. The cover is coming soon (and I'm totally stoked about this one!), but for now, let me introduce you to Jeremy and Regan (pronounced Reegan).

WARNING: As I've already noted in a previous FB post, this book contains graphic violence, including school gun violence. I understand that this is an extremely sensitive topic, and for those who are even the slightest bit unsure if they should tackle this story, I would err on the side of caution and encourage you not to. My disclaimer is no marketing tactic to draw you in. There are extremely disturbing scenes that may act as triggers for those who have firsthand experience or are intimately connected to others who've experienced gun violence.

~A lot can change in the space between devising a plan and carrying it out. That space is called the INTERIM.~

High school seniors Jeremy Stahl and Regan Walters aren’t friends. Not even close. He’s a picked-on, picked-apart loser outcast. She’s a cool kid running with the popular crowd. It’s unlikely they’d ever speak to one another. Too bad he’s madly in love with her. But what does it matter anyway? He’s got no time for love. Only revenge.

Meticulously detailed in the pages of his battered red notebook is his master plan: April 14, 9:30 A.M., two guns, eighty rounds of ammo, backup knives, eleven victims. He’s finally ready to answer every single taunt, jeer, and flying fist—unwarranted abuse that’s spanned six years of his lonely life. He’s justified. He’s ready. But he never readied himself for her.

Regan finds his journal. She reads it, and when he discovers her intrusion, he has to switch tactics. She’s a liability now.

Better fix that.
