Liz Fichera Takes the Dare!

We are very excited to have author Liz Fichera as our guest blogger today! Liz's debut novel HOOKED will be be published by Harlequin Teen on January 31st, 2013.

Here's a teaser blurb!

Sparks fly when a Native American girl with a killer golf swing joins the all boys’ golf team at her high school and takes on the boy with the killer smile.  It’s Perfect Chemistry meets Catching Jordan with a dash of West Side Story.

HOOKED sounds fantastic, and we're looking forward to seeing it hit the shelves. Today, Liz is tackling a dare via vlog--she's going to read out loud some prose she'd written as a kid. Thanks for signing up to play truth or dare, Liz!

HOOKED is currently available for pre-order at any bookstore.  However, anyone who purchases through her hometown bookstore, The Poisoned Pen, will receive an autographed copy.  The Poisoned Pen ships worldwide.  Additionally, there is a huge pre-order promotional contest beginning on November 1 that includes giveaways and prizes.  Check Liz’s web site for the details.

  1. Hee. "regular dreams" FTW! :)

    Thanks so much for taking the dare!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Liz! And congrats on HOOKED getting a starred review! I'm dying to read it.

  3. Oh, see...I had no idea I needed to put in a request. I've been doing it all wrong!

    Thanks for stopping in, Liz! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing, Liz! Childhood writing is priceless :)

  5. Thanks, Ladies! So glad Mom kept all those stories. And sure wish I had a Dream Machine, for realz! :)

  6. Wow, you could cut cheese on the cheek bones of that guy on the cover.


    Sorry. Got a little sidetracked. ;) Great vlog! I recently found a whole stash of my old novels. It was pretty hilarious.

  7. I think it was a very creative story for a 10 (is that how old you said?) year old. A dream machine. So cool. I want to know what consists of a "regular" dream because I don't think my dreams are ever put to that setting. :) I also like that with the dream machine my dreams would have a narrator. I don't think my dreams have ever been narrated before. Ha.

    Thanks for visiting today, Liz! I can't wait to read your book. Like Renee said: hot...ahem...I mean great cover! :)

  8. I love it! "OBVIOUSLY, you need to use my dream machine." That is adorable.

  9. That wasn't so bad! And of course you need a hat.

  10. Hey neat! This is the first blogging dare I've ever seen! Brave of you, Liz!

  11. Liz rocks and her book sounds great, as usual!! I want a print copy ;)
