Bethany Hensel to Release UNSTOPPABLE, 12/3
On December 3, 2013, the world will get to read Pittsburgh author Bethany Hensel's debut New Adult novel, Unstoppable. Released through all major retailers including Barnes and Noble (US and UK), Apple, Kobo, FlipKart (India), FNAC (France and Portugul), Bookworld (Australia), Indigo (Canada), Rakuten (Japan), Amazon and more, this emotion-packed debut will be available first as an ebook for $3.99 and later as a trade paperback for $12.99.
Gwyn Cready, RITA Award winner and considered the master of time-travel romance, states, "Sexy and unstoppable, this sizzling debut hits the mark and never lets up."
Action-packed and romantic, Unstoppable tells the story of 19 year old Derek Archer and the three days he has to right a terrible wrong. With the help of a childhood friend with a penchant for high-tech espionage, he is thrust deep into the heart of a seemingly perfect family, where old ghosts, bitter lies and agonizing betrayal all collide. It's then Derek discovers just how unimaginable the truth can be...and how unstoppable.
Early readers have raved that Unstoppable is "a vacation read, a fun, fast-paced story about murders, an oppressive government and good-looking young people in love.", "...full of so many exciting twists and turns..." and "...a pager turner that is thrilling and evocative. A must read!"
"I'm so excited to share this story," says Hensel. "I say it's like Baz Lurhmann's Romeo and Juliet meets the Bourne Identity-without the amnesia. Think romance, suspense and all sorts of action."
Bethany caps off an amazing 2013 with the release of her debut novel, but she hits the ground running in 2014 with the publication of two full-length novels and a novella.
