Stand By Me

So, this is it - the sixth book in the Bryant Rockwell series, bringing to a close the traumatic adventures of my teenage trio.
You can pick up a copy for only 99c/99p.

You know the whole Edward or Jacob debate? (Twilight 2008)
Or, if you prefer, Gale or Peeta? (Hunger Games 2012)
So, it must have been something in the Zeitgeist, because I wrote these 6 books from 1999 to 2007. And the theme that runs through all six is that Liv has to choose between Ray (the guy in a wheelchair with a secret) and Jimmy (the guy on a motorbike with a secret). It made for fun writing, and I hope it makes for fun reading.

Here's an idea of what you'd be letting yourself in for:
Ray had it all: looks, brains and athletic prowess. Arrogance, much? Two car crashes later he's minus his mum, his uncle and his legs.
After a happy accident, he regains his independence with an unfortunate side effect - the arrogance is back. In his quest to reach his previous level of fitness, he's in danger of losing it all again. With the pedal pressed firmly to the metal, it will take something catastrophic to stop Ray's spiral into self-destruction.

Here's what people are saying:
"This well-written series perfectly captures the teen angst, relationships, slang, jealousies and bullying that are so normal for teens. The characters are a bit older, but only slightly wiser. I will just say that these adventures kept me well entertained."

"Watching your friends on the brink of self-destruction is hard. This clever tale takes the reader on a journey to find one's self and encourages one to support their friends through challenging times. May we all be so blessed to have such good friends to help us through our not so stellar moments. A great finish to a wonderful series."

"The best thing about this series is the way each book has a slightly different feel. The first one sets the scene with all three girls sharing the mic to reveal bits of their story, the second feels like an episode of Glee, and the third has continual quirky dialogue between Liv's feuding inner voices. The fourth is a 'girl's own' adventure, the fifth a cozy mystery, and the sixth reveals inner torment via Monty Pythonesque dream sequences. Very cool."
