My guest author for July is Paige Adams. She's unique, as she's a teen author who started her debut novel as a class assignment. She enjoyed the process of writing so much that she followed through with editing and brought it to publication.
Instead of inviting Paige to share her thoughts about the book, I'm changing things up. I let my 13 year-old daughter, who read Red Velvet and loved it, write the post. The book engrossed her. Of course, she's a horsewoman who loves horses and anything ever written or said or sold about horses, but she promises the book isn't just for fanatical equine enthusiasts.
My darling daughter writes:
Red Velvet was written by my cousin, Paige Adams. It's a book about a girl who blames the death of her sister on on herself. She is depressed and has no friends. She does everything she can to be part of the snobby group of girls. But Delilah cannot find the love she is missing since her sister's death, until she meets Beau. Beau saves her life, but then nobody knows if Delilah will survive.
What I like best about Red Velvet is that it is about horses, and it has romance and drama and action. I loved this book so much that I finished it in less than a week, and I really don't like to read. This book is perfect for people ages 10-20. This is a well-written book. I hope Paige Adams writes a sequel.
If you have a teenage daughter, buy Red Velvet, available in paperback or Kindle, for her. You'll be giving your child a good read and supporting a teen author, too. That makes for a double feel-good day.
