My new YA novel, The Anorexic Experiment, releases on Tuesday, June 27! It will be available in paperback and eBook, and I will post a new blog entry with links to buy it once it is out. You can also visit my events page to find out where you can buy a signed copy (more events coming soon): http://angelabaconbooks.com/events/. Here is a quick description of the book:

Although the Jones family may look happy from the outside, secrets are slowly tearing them apart. What starts as a harmless assignment for journalism class morphs into an obsessive nightmare for fifteen-year-old Aimee Jones. A new friend, Josh, complicates matters even more. Will Aimee give in to temptation or find her own voice in the middle of chaos?
Aimee’s mom, Sara, fills her time with cooking and cleaning to avoid focusing on herself. Her attempts to make life healthy for her husband and kids do not equal good health for herself, though, and sometimes the pressure becomes too much. Will Sara take some time to focus on her own needs or keep pushing her problems away until it’s too late?

 

You will notice something a little different about my name on this book. I have decided to change my author name over to my married name, which is Angela Bacon Grimm. For now, my first book, Illegally Innocent, will continue to list “Angela Bacon” as my author name, but that may change once I release the sequel to Illegally Innocent. If you’d like to read the first couple of chapters of either of my books, you can find them under the “Books” page of my website, www.angelabaconbooks.com.

Thank you to everyone for your support of my writing over the past few years!  🙂

I am excited to share that I have been distributing copies of my current work-in-progress, a YA novel called The Anorexic Experiment, to a dozen-ish beta readers over the past couple of weeks and have already started hearing back from them! While I am waiting on feedback, I am working on the manuscript for a different book (title still undecided). This month marks four years since I released Illegally Innocent, so it is definitely time to publish another book. I have two author events scheduled before the end of the year, and I will keep you updated on whether I will have a new book available at one or both of these events. I am going to try a different self-publishing company this time, so it remains to be seen whether that choice will make the publishing process easier or harder than last time. If you’d like to visit me at an author event, mark your calendar now. 🙂 Here is where I will be:

Saturday, November 12, 2016–Santa’s Bag Arts & Crafts Show at Marshall High School in Marshall, MI, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday, December 3, and Sunday, December 4, 2016–Christmas at Wings Art & Craft Show at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, MI, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday
