Hello and thanks for stopping by! I would like to thank my host for today for letting me invade their space. And a big thanks also to 4Wills Publishing for setting up this blog tour for me. For my previous tour stops, please check out the 4Wills current events page.
I am so excited to be able to share my book trailer video with you today for my latest book, Finding Katie.
Kate has been in hospital for a while, and now faces a transfer on to a psych ward. She needs a way out. And being stuck in this one hospital room for so long is driving her nuts. The demon that lives inside has grown strong again.
Excerpt from Chapter Four:
SANDRA, THE charge nurse, comes in with a young-looking woman. All the nurses wear scrub-like uniforms, but the students still have to wear those dorky white dresses.
‘This is Suzy. She’s a student nurse. She’ll be taking out your sutures today.’ She fixes me with a stare. ‘Behave for her, please.’
I just shrug and keep flicking through my iPod. It’s great having this with me again. I settle on 21 by Adele. Sandra asks if she can speak with Melanie. My ears prick up, but I pretend inattention.
‘Just for a minute or two,’ she says. ‘Suzy can keep an eye on her.’
‘Okay.’ Melanie sounds reluctant.
They leave, and Suzy gets busy setting up the sterile field. When she’s done, she picks up the blunt-ended dressing scissors and cuts the bandage away. I steal a peek at my arm. The scar looks huge and is all pink and puckered. Damn. I had no idea it’d be so bad.
I killed someone, you see. I killed the girl, who used to be me.
I’m Kate … Kate Charlesworth. I’m seventeen, and self-harming. This time I cut too deep, and I’m in hospital. I hadn’t meant for it to be so bad—it just sort of happened. I needed a lot of distraction that day.
You’ve had bad days, right? Days it hurts too much to think. Days you just wanna stay in bed. Days when the world needs to go away for a while. Right?
What do you do when you’ve hit rock bottom? When there’s nowhere left to turn?
This one little mistake lands me back on a psych unit—the last place I wanna be. Only this time, the nurse I end up with isn’t content to stick on a band-aid and send me home. She wants me to face my demons. But to do that, I’ll have to face who I am … who I used to be … I’ll have to find Katie.
Harmony Kent is famous for her laughter, and has made quite the name for herself … she’s also, um, a writer … and fairly well known for that too. She lives in rural Cornwall with her ever-present sense of humour and quirky neighbours. She is single and not admitting to her age.
Here are ten things she thinks you ought to know about her …
- Born in 2013 (at least the author was …)
- Really boring
- Has absolutely no sense of humour
- Biographer is a compulsive liar
- Reads … a lot
- Writes … even more
- Completely sane(in)
- Neighbours are nuts
- If you’re feeling extra brave she’s around
