So, a lot of you have probably heard about this already, but this is just making it official and what-not.
As mentioned previously, we have to take a break in between Beyond books to refresh our brains and keep the stories and the world fresh and exciting for us to write. In 2014 we tried to write novellas in between the books, but that didn’t go so well…by the end of the year, we were tired.
So this year, as soon as Beyond Innocence was done, we picked up a project we’d started last summer but had put aside because we just didn’t have time to finish it. This project was exciting to us. It was different from anything we’d ever written. It wasn’t about saving the world or killing bad guys before they kill you. It was about the quieter ways we break and the struggle to feel normal.
When the time came to publish, we considered releasing this book as Kit Rocha. But it is different. You won’t find dystopian hijinks or grown-ups fighting wars or having crazy hot sex parties within these pages. So we decided on a new name–a name we’ll share, hoping you might want to read something a little different–but a name that makes it clear that this is something different.
So meet Joelle Knox.
Anything but Broken
After five years, tragedy brings Hannah Casey back to Hurricane Creek to bury what’s left of her family. She’s flunking out of college, haunted by scandal, and the only person who cares is Sean Whitlow, an irresistible bad boy with a soft spot for her. The problem? He’s her dead sister’s ex.
Sean doesn’t bleed red, he bleeds motor oil. During the week, he struggles to turn his auto repair shop into a profitable business. But when Saturday night rolls around, he’s the reigning stock-car king of the local race track. He doesn’t know how to lose–or how to walk away and leave Hannah alone with her grief.
Between her grades and her wealthy family’s dark secrets, Hannah’s barely holding her life together. And the last thing Sean needs is to get tangled up with another Casey girl. As the attraction between them spins out of control, they’ll either find a love with no limits–or go up in flames.
We’ll be back in our writer cave after this, working on the next in the Beyond series with fresh hearts and great excitement. Also we’re going to do terrible things to the sectors, so you have that to look forward to. 😉
