I'm a (Local) Best Seller--Plus 52 Likes by Medeia Sharif

Today, I'm welcoming Medeia Sharif, author extraordinaire. But first--a bit of super-good news. I made the local (Nashville) best-seller list this week--#3!!! Yay! I have to say it was due in large part to those of you who ordered an autographed copy for your librarians, school libraries, and the tween girls in your lives. My blogging friends are a-MAY-zing!



Now on to the featured act! Medeia Sharif is one of the most prolific authors I know. Her latest book is now out and it sounds like a winner. Check it out and add it to your to-read list pronto! Oh...and she's giving away a $50 Amazon gift card and a copy of her book, so be sure to enter!

52 LIKES, Evernight Teen, 2015
Purchase from Amazon, Evernight Teen (vendor links will be updated on the author's site)

After a brutal rape and near-murder, Valerie wants to get past feelings of victimhood from both the assault and her history of being bullied. She’s plagued by not knowing the identity of her rapist and by the nasty rumors in school about that night. Valerie follows clues from ghostly entities, past victims of the rapist-murderer, contacting her through a social media site—why do all of their eerie photos have 52 likes under them? Their messages are leading her to the mystery man, although he’ll put up a fight to remain hidden.

    1. I didn't know either--I believe it's in the books section. It's provided by our big independent bookstore here in Nashville, which is owned by author Ann Patchett. That's cool in itself!

  31. Whoopee! That showing on the local best seller list is something to crow about. I don't know if they have a list in the Los Angeles Times like that. I only see the best seller list from the NY Times in our paper. They should have a local list too.

    1. If a writer made the Los Angeles best-seller list, it would be huge! A friend said he was in one of the biggest L.A. Barnes & Nobles when 30 Days came out and saw they had 10+ copies of my books on shelves. I got so excited about that! L.A. has always seemed so glamorous to me, so it makes me smile to know my book is there!
