A Young Adult Novel from
Today I am featuring an excerpt from Lila Felix's lastest Young Adult Novel "Perchance" as part of her book tour through Twimom101Bookblog.
Remi Harris has a plan. Graduate high school, go to college, become a history teacher, be self-sufficient unlike her mother who is a struggling single mom. And the word ‘boy’ has no place in her plan.
Cooper Neal has been sent to his estranged father’s house to spend his Senior year getting to know him. And maybe, just maybe, there will be some cute girls in the small town.
Cooper sees Remi and he falls hard. Remi sees Cooper and wonders if she can do both. The question is; will he ruin her plans, or will she let him be a part of them?
I got one good look at her approaching the booth and I swear everything down to my toes was sweating. I couldn’t even say ‘hello’ or anything because I was afraid if I did, it would come out in a wave of ‘Biscuit Shack’ vomit. I smiled at her, but it was as if she was too beautiful for any words that could come out of my mouth. I never ever have gotten nervous around a girl…ever. I’m not a player, not even close to it, but I’ve been on my share of dates. But never have I broken out in a sweat just at the sight of a girl. Maybe it was just the heat down here. Yeah, that had to be it.
Sounds great huh? I had the pleasure of reading Miss Felix's first novel, Emerge, and fell in love with Jenna and Carlos. I'm certain Remi and Copper will be just as great judging on this excerpt.

As some of you are aware, I announced a secret project last week. It's not so much a secret as it is a new approach to how I'm writing my next book. I have chosen to not publish the cover art, blurb or release date until it's almost finished. I have this little habit of getting an idea for a book and then publishing a synopsis that I want to change later on once I get into the story. This is backwards. I also tend to choose a release date and have problems hitting that deadline. Either I ran into hiccups along the way and I rush to finish it, (which is totally unfair to the story) or I finish early and can't wait to publish it.
With that being said, everything about this book is different. I will tell you it is an adult contemporary romance and I hope to release it around Christmas. It's not like anything I've done before but I feel like I may have found my true niche. We'll see what you guys think.
I have been asked countless times for Dallas and Dane's story and I'm happy to announce that I will be writing their story sometime in the future. I currently have 2 projects on my plate so it will probably be Spring before I can tackle it.
I will announce my current project once it solidifies a little more, but I am uber excited about it. I hope you will be, too.
It's true. I have a Top Secret Project in the works.
*Biting my nails*
It's not like anything I've ever done before and
I'll give you a little more information as it solidifies,
but I wanted you to know...
I'm not sitting on the couch eating Bon Bons.
