One of my readers just let me know that The First Lie is already available for preorder, so I think it’s time for me to tell you about it. The First Lie is a short story inspired by my next novel, Necessary Lies, which will be out in September. Set on a tobacco farm in North Carolina, the story introduces you to thirteen-year-old Ivy Hart on the night her fifteen-year-old sister gives birth. I wrote The First Lie after writing the book, and I loved getting to take my characters back a couple of years and discover a little more of their beginnings.
The First Lie will only be available in ebook format and only in the US. (Sorry UK and AU readers!) It sells for 99 cents. If you’d like to preorder or just read a little more about it, here’s the Amazon link, but it’s also available for other e-readers as well. Have fun!
