Excerpt from Intersexion

proxy kindleFirst draft of Proxy is finished! Look for it to be published later this year. I’m currently planning for my next Camp Nanowrimo novel, to start April 1.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along!

Since I just launched Intersexion and it is going to be free on Kindle this weekend starting Thursday (go ahead, write it down!) I thought I would share an excerpt for my Teaser Tuesday this week. Intersexion is a heartwrenching YA novel about identity and being true to yourself that will really make you think.

Don’t you dare cry. You’ll mess up your makeup. Let’s just say that someone did something for me once and I’m passing it along. Someday when your life is going better, you’ll help someone else. And that will be how you pay me back.

P.D. Workman, Intersexion

Taylor is a teen teetering on the edge of a steep precipice. Disowned by his family, living on the street, battling abuse and prejudice, he struggles to discover who he really is and how to carry on with life.
The last person you would expect to touch him is Roz, whose foremost identity is a Christian wife and mother. But her world is about to be shaken. Through all that happens, Roz understands she has to be there for Taylor, knowing he is only one step from despair and self-destruction.
—My heart went out to Taylor as he dealt with abuse and rejection. I had a hard time putting down the book because I couldn’t wait to see what happened.
—I think this kind of story needs to be told right now.
—I applaud you for creating such a book that was so near to my heart and one that could and did make me forget daily life.

  1. Sounds like a fascinating, touching story. Best of luck with your launch.

    Interesting teaser. My YA teaser comes from The Inn Between by Marina Cohen. Happy reading!

  3. Interesting teaser – looks like a thriller. This is mine, similar but a different genre:

But a brutal murder soon reminds her that there are worse things than competition. Especially when she is discovered with the murder weapon in her hand.
