Broken Fate by Jennifer Derrick Release Tour

Clean Teen Publishing is proud to present Broken Fate,the much anticipated debut release from Jennifer Derrick.

But first, a guest post from the author herself, Jennifer Derrick!!!

A Video Tour of My Writing Space

People often ask me what my writing space is like. It's pretty difficult to describe. It's made up of necessary work stuff and things that make me smile and bring me joy. Rather than even try to describe it, I'll just let you see it.

One thing you'll notice when you watch the video is that my writing space isn't all that serious. I've got old Beanie Babies, Hot Wheels, and even Fisher Price figures on my desk. Why would a grown adult have these things? Because they make me smile. They remind me of simpler times. (Plus, they give me something to mess with when I'm thinking or talking on the phone.)

While I'm professional and efficient in my work, I don't take life too seriously. I used to, but it stressed me out. Now I play more, relax more, and just try to let more stuff roll off my back rather than letting it get to me. My desk is a reflection of that. It's organized for work, but there's nothing serious or stressful about it. 

Zeus gave her one simple job: Kill every human. Atropos-daughter of Zeus and the third goddess of Fate from Greek mythology -spends her eternal life snipping human lifelines when their mortal lives are over. As if being a killer doesn't make life miserable enough, she and her Fate-wielding sisters must live amongst the humans on Earth thanks to a long-running feud between their mother and Zeus. Living on Earth means they must mingle with the mortals, attend the local high school, and attempt to fit in-or at least not stand out too much. Killing and mingling don't mix, which is why Atropos' number-one rule is to avoid all relationships with the humans. Caring for the people she has to kill is a fast track to insanity. However, when Alex Morgan walks into her first-period English class, she knows she's in for trouble. He's the worst kind of human for her to like-one with a rapidly approaching expiration date. And he makes Atropos want to break all the rules.

About the Author

I became a writer at the age of six when my parents bought me a child’s typewriter for Christmas and agreed to pay me a penny per page for any stories I churned out.

When I got older, I realized that I needed to make (much) more money from my writing so I first turned to the corporate world (where I learned that I am spectacularly unsuited to cubicle life) and ultimately to freelancing where I now write everything from technical manuals to articles on personal finance and European-style board games.

My writing career came full circle when Clean Teen Publishing accepted Broken Fate, my first novel. By my calculations, my parents owe me about $3.00 for that book.

I live in North Carolina and, when not writing, can often be found reading anything I can get my hands on, playing board games, watching sports, camping, running marathons, and playing with my dog.
