Here’s the back cover blurb:
“He’s saved her. He’s loved her. He’s killed for her. Eighteen-year-old Archer couldn’t protect his best friend, Vivian, from what happened when they were kids, so he’s never stopped trying to protect her from everything else. It doesn’t matter that Vivian only uses him when hopping from one toxic relationship to another—Archer is always there, waiting to be noticed. Then along comes Evan, the only person who’s ever cared about Archer without a single string attached. The harder he falls for Evan, the more Archer sees Vivian for the manipulative hot-mess she really is. But Viv has her hooks in deep, and when she finds out about the murders Archer’s committed and his relationship with Evan, she threatens to turn him in if she doesn’t get what she wants… And what she wants is Evan’s death, and for Archer to forfeit his last chance at redemption.”

My Interview with the Awesome Kelley York

First Kelley I would like to say thank you for stopping by my blog Read Between The Lines and talking with us about your recently released debut novel Hushed. 
To get things started could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Kelley, and I’m a young adult author who...uh, specializes? (Likes? Primarily writes?) dark fiction. I grew up in central California, and I have way too many pets.
1. What was the inspiration behind Hushed the book was Dark and Beautifully written?
Thank you! Archer was my inspiration. I got the idea for him, and then everything else fell into place around him. He isn’t the driving force of the novel (in my opinion), but obviously, he’s the biggest factor in everything that happens. 
2. A lot of authors have playlist for writing did you have a playlist while writing Hushed? 
I do! I made a blog post about this awhile back, in fact, sharing my entire playlist and casting choices. Dream Cast and Music One of the songs I listened to a lot while writing was ‘What Sarah Said’ by Death Cab for Cutie, and ‘Meds’ by Placebo. 
3. Do you have a favorite time of day or even a special place you go to when writing?
My favorite time and place to write is...whenever I have time and wherever I can, haha! I’m really pressed for time, so my writing time is spaced into small areas wherever I can fit it. Often, it’s on lunches and breaks during my day-job. 
4. How long did it take from start to finish to have Hushed published?
Oh, that's hard to say. I took about 5 months to write the book. I spent another 5-6 months querying. (This is just a guesstimate, though.) In June, 2011, I got my contract offer and six months later, it was published. 
5. Do you have any other WIP that you can share some info on?
I have another LGBT book I'm working on, but I can't give away much more than that! 
6. Have you always wanted to be a writer or is this something new?
I used to want to be an artist. A few years back, I got really burnt out on drawing and I hardly pick up a pencil anymore. I've written for as long as I can remember, but only when I wasn't occupied by drawing all the time did I dive into writing full-length novels and realize it was what I wanted to do for a living.
7. Do you have any authors that maybe inspired you to want to write if so who are they?
Not really. I wasn't reading much at all when I finished my first book. I read maybe three or four books a year. It wasn't until around the time I started HUSHED that I began picking books up again at a steady pace. (I've managed to read almost 50 in 2011, and I'm very proud of myself for that!) When I was little, though, I devoured things by Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume. And my favorite books were THE LAST UNICORN along with MRS. FRISBY AND THE RATS OF NIMH. They may not have inspired me to write, but they sure did spark my imagination.
Just For Fun 
Favorite Candy?
Truffles! I love truffles. Also, banana-flavored runts. 
Coffee or Tea?
Ick, neither! I'm a soda girl.
Favorite Book Genres?
Dark Young Adult. I'm partial to horror and thrillers. 
Favorite Season?
Winter! Fall comes in at a close second.
And do you have anything you would like to say or share with your readers?

Read, read, read !

Review Time 5/5

 My copy was provided by Entangled Publishing for review for part of the Hushed Blog Tour

This story deals with how the human psyche can be fragile and interweaves raw emotion with beautiful characters. When I read this book it brought out a lot of emotion in me I cried and I laughed and it even made my heart all warm and fuzzy. I fell in love with Archer and Evan but not so much Vivian.

Hushed is a Dark and Beautifully Written story about a guy Archer Pond willing to kill and has killed and forced some to take their own life in hopes of getting is best friend back Vivian who he was forced to watch being raped by her brothers friends. Since the rape Vivian as been on a downward spiral and Archer feels responsible for what happened because he was not able to stop it when it happened. So he made a promise to him self to get revenge for what happened to free him self of the guilt over what happened and and hope to free Vivian also. Along the way a guy Evan came into their lives and upon that happening Archer well sorta feel in love with Evan and outa love with Vivian which only infuriated her. Vivian wanted nothing to do with Archer romantically until Evan showed up and showed Archer that he did not need to be the monster that he was. That there was redemption for what he has done and a way to live life with out all the drama that Vivian only seem to bring to Archer with her constant failed relationships. This story is Dark and Gritty and captivates you from the beginning Kelley just takes you right into the world with no going back. This is a must read.
