Glimmer Wins Gold!

Glimmer recently won a GOLD MEDAL from the Independent Publisher Book Awards (an IPPY) for Best Young Adult E-Book and an Honorable Mention in Genre Fiction from the North Street Book Prize.

Glimmer, the first book in The Black Swan Files is available now. YA LOVE MAGAZINE says, “Glimmer is a thrilling adventure set in the near future and it completely took me by surprise! The book completely holds its own in the YA genre and produces a strange mix of tech, thriller, romance and adventure, inevitably though it is a book about teen angst and self-discovery (as all good YA books are). To its benefit this book is not set in a dystopian world, instead it cements itself in a very near future with possibilities that don’t stray that far from our imagination. Perhaps that is why it is so gripping, it is unrealistic and perfectly realistic at the same time. Read full review here.

“GLIMMER is a thrilling adventure!”

 

The Black Swan Files introduces a new superhero—and she’s come to kick ass, take names, and reclaim what was stolen from her…as soon as she escapes a high-tech, military facility where science and technology operate in ethically gray areas and freedom is negotiable.

Fortunately she’s not alone in her quest for freedom.

Glimmer is available in all formats, including a print version through Amazon.com

I hope you will check it out my other work. A good start is Siren’s Song which received decent recognition and awards, and is a book that a lot of men enjoyed for the humor, characters and action. That said, my audience is young females—and the romance between the heroine and hero is pretty epic in this book.

I blog regularly about following your dreams, living life to the fullest and celebrating those who do it well! You can also find me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and other socializing venues @triciacerrone. Look around, have fun and take some time to dream and scheme about your own life while you’re here.

Cheers!
Tricia

    5 Election Season Tactics

    Every four years, since I can remember, elections come around and they seem to bring out the worst language, behavior, and attitudes in the American people.

    This election, most seem to agree, that whoever wins, the next President will not only be lacking in character and integrity, but the two contenders have been touted at the “worst two people in America”.

    Ouch! Well I don’t think they are the worst Americans, and I don’t think either one is going to press some red button and end the world, but still…where does that leave us?white-house-001

    We are part of this process. We are one of the few nations with the freedom of an anonymous vote in a democratic system. We are as responsible for the actions of the next President, Congress, and appointed Judges as those individuals. (I can already hear the curses and threats to move to Canada.)

    Now that last few months, have rendered our candidates ‘unvotable’, (a new word I just made up), we have to decide—do we stay home, do we vote for one of the other random candidates on the ballot, or do we find a

She is known as Project Sunday to her former government captors—a human enhanced teen transformed by a black swan event. She was their most valuable asset—until she escaped. And one thing is certain, Jocelyn has no intention of ever going back.

Graeme knew Jocelyn was special the first time he met her...then leaping from his Porsche to take down a drone pretty much sealed the deal. Now she's back and trouble is not far behind. But how did you help someone who wouldn't tell you the truth, was constantly on the move, and had a best friend that you wanted to punch in the face? As the stakes get higher and his own family is at risk, Graeme has to decide one thing...whose side is he on?

Finally in New York, Jocelyn is eager to reach her brother and sister, but nothing works out as she hoped. She has no way to prove who she is, there's a serial killer who wants her dead, her former handler is now controlled by her nemesis, and the mastermind of it all is toying with her. Amidst everything, she is trying to survive in the "real world", help her family in secret, and navigate her first shot at romance.

Thankfully, she has friends with skills. It will take all of them to stop the government's latest plot. But at what cost?  #yaliterature #yalit #amreading #amwriting #glisten #blackswanfiles #adventurebook #adventuretime #superheroes #diversityinya #sciencefiction #teenreads
