Hello and thanks for stopping by! I would like to thank my host for today for letting me invade their space. And a big thanks also to 4Wills Publishing for setting up this blog tour for me. For my previous tour stops, please check out the 4Wills current events page.
I am so excited to be able to share my book trailer video with you today for my latest book, Finding Katie.
When we’re suffering … When we’re at rock bottom … We all find our own unique ways of coping. Sometimes, it takes a while to find one that works. And what we end up with usually isn’t that healthy. Which is okay if it’s short term, but what happens when it becomes a way of life? What then?
Excerpt from Chapter Two:
MELANIE IS not happy. LOL. Good news is that Fat Angie won’t be back. Score one for Team Kate. Ha!
My escape attempt did achieve something: I’m no longer on the drip, or hooked up to any machines. Yay for me. They figured if I’m well enough to abscond, I’m well enough to not need all that stuff anymore.
This morning, the ward nurses give me the cold-shoulder. Apparently, I hurt the mouse. Silly cow should’ve gotten out of my way. All I did was knock into her. How bad could it be? I’ve had worse, for sure. Does anyone care about that?
Right. Just what I thought.
A ward nurse and a security guy are in here with me. Melanie’s off to some big meeting. About me. LOL. Like they’re gonna change anything. Talk about ‘play it again Sam’.
I have to laugh, though. The regular nurses are all so scared of me they have to bring in security. Not like the psych guys … they just do the one-on-one and get on with it.
I stare at the TV, so I don’t have to look at the two goons. They keep giving me wary glances, then whisper together.
‘BOO!’ I yell, just for the hell of it.
They both jump. Too funny. Sure beats morning TV.
I killed someone, you see. I killed the girl, who used to be me.
I’m Kate … Kate Charlesworth. I’m seventeen, and self-harming. This time I cut too deep, and I’m in hospital. I hadn’t meant for it to be so bad—it just sort of happened. I needed a lot of distraction that day.
You’ve had bad days, right? Days it hurts too much to think. Days you just wanna stay in bed. Days when the world needs to go away for a while. Right?
What do you do when you’ve hit rock bottom? When there’s nowhere left to turn?
This one little mistake lands me back on a psych unit—the last place I wanna be. Only this time, the nurse I end up with isn’t content to stick on a band-aid and send me home. She wants me to face my demons. But to do that, I’ll have to face who I am … who I used to be … I’ll have to find Katie.
Harmony Kent is famous for her laughter, and has made quite the name for herself … she’s also, um, a writer … and fairly well known for that too. She lives in rural Cornwall with her ever-present sense of humour and quirky neighbours. She is single and not admitting to her age.
Here are ten things she thinks you ought to know about her …
- Born in 2013 (at least the author was …)
- Really boring
- Has absolutely no sense of humour
- Biographer is a compulsive liar
- Reads … a lot
- Writes … even more
- Completely sane(in)
- Neighbours are nuts
- If you’re feeling extra brave she’s around
- Online …
