Unlit Star by Lindy Zart

Unlit Title

 

Syn

Rivers Young was the popular guy untouchable by reality. He was like a star—bright, consuming, otherworldly. The thing about stars, though, is that they eventually fall, and Rivers Young was no different.

He fell far and he fell hard.

Delilah Bana was the outcast enshrouded in all of life’s ironies. Alone, in the d…ark, like dusk as it falls on the world. When Rivers fell from the sky, she was the night that caught him. In the darkness, they found one another. Together they melded into something beautiful that shone like the sun.

Only, the greater the star is, the shorter its lifespan.

“You could always come work at the flower shop with me. I’m sure your flower arrangements would be extraordinary.”

“You’re really not as funny as you think you are, you know that?”

“I’m funnier,” I say, poking his stomach. A tiny light blinks above his shoulder and I grab his arms and whirl him around. “Look! It’s a lightning bug.” I bounce on the balls of my feet.

He looks over his shoulder at me. “You act like you’ve never seen one before.”

“I love lightning bugs,” I breathe. “I used to spend hours every summer catching and releasing them.”

“Like a true fisherman of bugs.”

I squint my eyes at him. “Come on—let’s catch some.” Without waiting for his answer, I skip forward, turning in a circle as I catch blips of glowing orbs in that magical time between partial dark and full. I spy one in the grass by my feet and reach a hand down, holding still as the bug lands on my fingers. “Go on, little buggy, go home before the storm comes.” It flies away, lighting up as it goes, and I smile as I straighten.

His breath tickles the side of my neck as he says, “You are the sweetest version of quirky I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in motion.”

I laugh softly. “Thank you. Glad you got to see me in action.”

He wraps his arms around my midsection and rests his chin on my shoulder. “Don’t ever change.”

“I do what I want,” I say, just to say it.

Rivers’ hold tightens. “That’s the exact thing I don’t want to ever change about you.”

TSIFsynopsis

 

Riley Clifton can’t remember a time when she wasn’t a part of the Six, a group of rowdy boys who would do just about anything for her. Growing up alongside of six guys is never easy. Especially in high school. Falling in love with one of the Six? Even harder when Ace has a hold of her heart, and he doesn’t even know it.

Jake (Ace) Aceton has loved Riley for a long time, but has kept the secret oath of the Six. Riley was off limits. At least until after graduation. When he overhears Riley admitting to her best friend, Paige how she feels about him, Ace doesn’t let his chance slip by. Riley, in his mind, has always been his.

When her college plan falls through, and her future is left to the hands of fate, Riley finds herself scrambling to keep up with all the changes. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is saying good-bye, especially to Ace.

Heartache, hard lessons, and a love deeper than her Alabama roots will threaten to crumble Riley’s world as she waits for Ace’s return.

Will Riley and Ace’s love be strong enough to hold them together when life tries to tear them apart?

Sonya2Sonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to the realization that this was the answer to the nagging persistent feeling that ‘there’s got to be something more’.
The dream came alive in 2009 when she purchased her laptop and began the tedious step of becoming a published author.
When she’s not reading, she’s writing. When she’s not writing, she’s reading. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s sleeping, shuttling her children back and forth to school, letting the dogs and cats in and out of the house for the umpteenth time in the last hour and dreaming of a clean house.

Presentation by Kobo Writing Life, one of Indie Bookfest’s 2014 sponsors.

Panel 2A- Got Serials?

(HM Ward, Rebecca Ethington, Sarra Cannon, Rene Folsom)

It’s new. It’s wow. And how! Not really … serials have been around about as far back as when authors had to pen their work by candle light with paper and a quill. Find out about this “new” wave of novella serials from some of the very authors who are writing and publishing them.

Panel 2B- Got Gore?

(Alexia Purdy, Rick Chiantaretto, Melanie Karsak, Adam Kunz)

Panel 3A- Got Character?

(Maria V. Snyder, Claudia Gray, Raine Thomas, Adam Kunz)

If you ain’t got a character that readers can feel deeply for, you ain’t got much! Why plot, without great character development makes for a hollow story.

Panel 4B- Got Game?

(Kristie Cook, Rick Miles, Tawdra Kandle, Mandie Stevens)

Time to market your book. Oh, boy. Marketing is hard. Marketing is a lot of work. But sometimes thinking outside of the box when it comes to trying to get your book noticed is just what can make the difference.

Panel 5- Got Mad Author Love?

(All authors attending Indie Bookfest!)

An interactive round of “Author Speed Dating”. Meet each and every one of our authors in this fun, fast-paced table-hop! (Some goodies may or may not be involved!) ;)

Panel 7- Got Romance?

(Belinda Boring, Lacey Weatherford, Sawyer Bennett, Brenda Rothert)

Everyone loves a little boom-chicka-wah-wah every now and then. While some authors like to keep it sweet & light, some like to make their pages steam as they type. What is your flavor of romance?   TicketsNowAvailable

excerpt

It dawned on me, at that moment, that Elliot would do whatever he could to bring Edge back around. It was possible Elliot thought Edge would come around the more he had contact with me. The thought of being close to him made my heart quicken, and heat crawled up my neck.

“You ready to take one for the team?” Elliot asked. His face was stoic, but his eyes were pleading.

“Let’s do this.” I growled. I’d fight day and night to bring Edge back. I’d fight until I could no longer stand, and then I’d get back up and keep fighting.

“Now here’s what I want you both to do.” Elliot laid out the rules, “No kicking, biting, or hitting below the belt. Today we’re going to work on evasive maneuvering. Once Jade has that down, then we’ll move on to sparring.”

Edge nodded once in agreement. How would I ever break through whatever they’d done to Edge?

“Jade, you ready?” Elliot asked.

“I sure hope you know what you’re doing, Elliot,” I murmured as I made my way to the mat and stood in front of Edge. Warmth radiated through me. He was my preordained, my other half, and it killed me not to be able to fall into his arms.

“Okay, here’s what we’re going to start off with. Edge will throw a punch…”

Stars bloomed behind my eyelids. I staggered across the mat and fell. “What the hell, Elliot?”
