Cover Reveal: Chasing Dirt Roads by Pixie Lynn Whitfield + An Exclusive Excerpt!

Okay lovelies, I'm so ridiculously excited to announce the cover reveal of Chasing Dirt Roads, which is a New Adult, Contemporary novel written by my dear friend Pixie Lynn Whitfield! I'm really excited for this book to come out! I'm a huge Contemporary lover so it's right up my alley!

Well I know you're all dying to see this cover (which happens to be gorgeous by the way!), so without further ado, I'd like to present the cover for Chasing Dirt Roads!


Chasing Dirt Roads:
It's the last place I wanted to be during the most important summer of my potential photography career. I was used to this though. Mom and I have been running the roads since I was thirteen while I stood by quietly and let her take me wherever. Cans and bottles littered our junked-out old Buick with the boxes. But something was different about the place this time. His name was Cooper Reed...
When eighteen-year-old Kenley Brooks moves to Lovely Heights, she's tired. Tired of moving around the country. Tired of taking care of her drunk mother. She just wants to finally settle down, live a normal life and get back into pursuing her photography dreams. After meeting Cooper and his friends, she thinks she could. But she has deep secrets and people are starting to gossip." ~See it on Goodreads
Estimated/Expected Release Date: January 2014

Now for a little extra treat, here's an exclusive excerpt from the book!!
"I heard him before I saw him, but when my eyes adjusted, I saw the young man standing on the inside of the fence, slightly off to the side. When I turned my head toward his voice, he came forward. I swallowed the lump forming in my throat and took a quick step backward. I couldn’t make out all of his features in the darkness.

“No, no. I’m sorry.” I heard my voice stutter out in a hurry. My mouth felt dry. He stepped up to the fence, placing his hands over the wood, and let out a friendly laugh. It rolled out in gentle baritone waves.

“It was a joke. Yeah, this is our property, but we let everyone come by and go swimming in the pond. Just clean up any trash—cans, bottles, wrappers. That’s all we ask.”

“Oh.” I was barely choking out syllables. I’d always struggled talking with strangers, especially guys. Most especially good-looking guys. Which I realized he definitely was as he got closer.

“You’re new…the new neighbor from down the road, aren’t you?”

I nodded, this time not even uttering a word, and hoped he could see my head bobbing. A goofy grin spread across his cheeks. His teeth were straight, with a slight gap between his front teeth giving him a more youthful, boyish appearance. He couldn’t be much older than me. His hair looked brown, but it was hard to tell which shade in the dark. And he was tall, at least a foot taller than me.

He leaned against the fence and I stepped further back into the road. I turned to head back to the house with nothing else to say to the stranger. It was embarrassing in a way really.

“Welcome to the neighborhood,” I heard him shout behind me as I started to walk away.

“Thanks,” I muttered. My cheeks flamed."
