I just had to share the mini-adventure I had this morning.

Wiling away my morning I happened to stumble across a very interesting author. Her name, Cat Clarke. Okay, so first off, I love her name.  So clearly, the only smart thing for me to do was actually check out her site and learn a bit about this new mystery writer.  And upon arrival to her site, the first thing that stands out to me is this brilliant, eye-catching book cover. 

HELLO! She's a redhead. Love redheads! (Why? I don't know. So don't ask.)

Absolutely gorgeous! Who wouldn't love this cover?! Seriously. Tell me who?  

But beyond just being completely intrigued by the lovely cover I was also thoroughly drawn in by the plot.  Here's a little taste of ENTANGLED...
The same questions whirl round and round in my head:

What does he want from me?
How could I have let this happen?

17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with
table,pens and paper - and no clue how she got here.

As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget. There's falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unraveling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see?

Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is
she here?

A story of dangerous secrets, intense friendship and electrifying attraction.

I know. Awesomeness.

So in all my excitement to get my hands on this book, I immediately popped over to Amazon thinking to order a copy on my Kindle, seeing as I have patience the size of a speck on a dust particle.  But alas, when I searched her book it was to only discover that Cat's book hasn't actually been published in the states yet. What?! Ugh. So being that I am part ninja with a self-confessed obsessive nature, I reached out to Cat to find out how I could get my hands on a copy. And I was actually lucky enough to make contact with said author on twitter, @cat_clarke, and was able to ask her about the publication of her book in the US.  Unfortunately, I was sadly informed that her book was not yet available in the states.  So, per Ms. Clarke's suggestion I popped over to The Book Depository to discover that its also currently unavailable at their venue.  The final outcome (after all that) is that I will have to wait (and we all know how patient I am) for her book to become available to be shipped here to the states. *Sigh*

But despite my failed efforts to purchase ENTANGLED, I still think it was a successful morning because 1) meeting and finding new writers is always a positive in my book & because 2) this book STILL looks & sounds AMAZING! 

So, if you haven't already tried out the links in the post, pop over to Cat's site www.catclarke.com and take a looksy.  

Happy reading all!
