Wish granted!

Ever since I read my good friend's book COLLISION, I've been cheering it on. At first I said I couldn't wait for Kate to find an agent or publisher. Then she did. That was good news, but I knew the process was a long one. I knew it was a hopeless wish, but I did wish it would be put on the fast track. Imagine my surprise when it was! COLLISION WILL COME OUT IN MAY! Wish granted. :)
And to put the cherry on top of my whip-creamed wish sundae, Kate is letting me do a cover reveal. Here is the cover for this crazy good book and a synopsis.

COLLISION, by Kate L.Mary, is a New Adult Romantic Mystery and will be published May 2, 2014 by Etopia Press. (I've never done a cover reveal so please excuse any cover reveal etiquette I screw up)

When eighteen-year-old Kara Jones gets into a car accident on the way home from college, she’s left with more than a few bruised ribs, a busted cell phone, and a totaled car. After a slip-up at the hospital, she’s shaken to discover that her family isn’t all it seems. And now her mother’s strange behavior and willingness to do anything to protect her secrets—including pulling Kara out of school—have Kara floundering in the dark.

Enter Derek Miller, a former classmate who’s dealing with family issues of his own. His nerdy charm is too much for Kara to resist, and she’s even more amazed when he agrees to help her dig into her mother’s past. Together they investigate her mother’s old friends and boyfriends, hoping to discover who Kara really is. Instead, they find disturbing connections to the dark history of Kent State University, and an ever expanding maze of mystery surrounding Kara’s birth.

As Kara and Derek chase secrets, she realizes he’s the only person she can trust. But as they get closer to the truth, the disturbing answers reveal a web of evil far darker and further reaching then they’d imagined, leaving Kara to wish she’d never asked the questions in the first place, and to wonder if some secrets are better left untold…

Kate L. Mary is a stay-at-home mother of four and an Air Force wife. She spent most of her life in a small town just north of Dayton, Ohio where she and her husband met at the age of twelve. Since their marriage in 2002, they have lived in Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and California. Kate enjoys any post-apocalyptic story – especially if zombies are involved – as long as there is a romantic twist to give the story hope. Kate prefers nerdy, non-traditional heroes that can make you laugh to hunky pieces of man-meat, and her love of wine and chocolate is legendary among her friends and family. She currently resides in Oklahoma with her husband and children.
