Helper12 is the YA Indie Spotlight on Katie Klein's blog!

Katie Klein, author of the great Cross My Heart (check it out--you'll enjoy it) featured me and Helper12 on her blog, right here:

Some snippets from the blog:

"The society in Helper12 seems frighteningly imaginable."

"Jack Blaine has managed a coup of characterization: he successfully mines the mind of a late adolescent girl living in a totalitarian state."

"Great, fast-paced, engaging dystopian. I didn't put it down until I finished!"

"A great, fast-paced adventure full of vivid imagery, interesting characters and clever twists. This one was hard to put down!"

Helper12 is available for Kindle and Nook, and is priced at $3.99

There's a great interview with Jack here, and you can visit him on the web or follow him on twitter (@jackblainebooks).

Great Review for Helper12!

Essie at Book Reviews by Essie gives Helper12 a great review!  Slightly spoilery, so watch out if you don't want that, but the last line is "This one won’t disappoint."  LOVE that!
