Kelsey Sutton Takes the Truth

We'd like to welcome to the blog today our guest, Kelsey Sutton. Her book, Some Quiet Place, comes out  in the Summer of 2013. It's summary is below and it sounds amazing (Plus, I adore the cover). But first, check out Kelsey taking on a truth about talking to a crush. This story made me laugh. It almost felt like it could've been taken straight from the pages of a YA novel. I loved it. Thanks for the fun real life experience, Kelsey. We can't wait to read your book.






Elizabeth Caldwell has perfected the art of pretending to feel emotion, but it’s always a lie. After a near-fatal car accident when she was a small child, Elizabeth lost the ability to feel any emotion, but along with that loss she gained bizarre abilities: she can see the personified Emotions she cannot feel. Fury, Resentment, Longing—they’ve all given up on her, because she doesn't succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one. Fear. He’s consumed by the mystery of Elizabeth’s past, consumed by her.

And then there are Elizabeth's cryptic, recurring dreams, in which there’s always love, and there’s always death. Haunted by these dreams, Elizabeth paints them, knowing that they somehow hold the key to the mystery of her past.

 But a shadowy menace is stalking Elizabeth. Her survival depends on uncovering the truth about herself. And when it matters most, she won’t be able to rely on Fear to save her.

 


Kelsey Sutton has done everything from training dogs, making cheeseburgers, selling yellow page ads, and cleaning hotel rooms. Now she divides her time between her full-time college classes and her writing, though she can also sometimes be found pounding out horrible renditions of Beethoven on the piano and trying bizarre drinks at her local coffee shop. Kelsey lives in northern Minnesota with her dog and cat, Lewis and Clark. Visit her on her blog at www.kelseysutton.blogspot.com.

  1. KELSEY!! I adored this vlog. You are too funny. (And can I just say I think it's author law that you have to look like a bag lady when going to the post office? I've never looked my best while running mailing errands.) Anyway, thanks for sharing! May Bookstore Boy never see your brave confession here on Thirteeners. ;)

    1. ERIN!! Haha thanks girly. And I like that law! It makes me feel better, like I had a right to go around in public looking like that. Oh and yeah... maybe he doesn't own a computer...

  2. Oh, Kelsey... at least you were incognito that dreadful day at the post office! When you're a famous author and he's your minion, you can look back on that moment and laugh.
