It's finally here -- RELEASE DAY for When We Were Us, Keeping Score Series Book 1. Join us at the Birthday and Release Bash right here.
The Trio. That's who we've been since birth: Nate, Leo ... and me, Quinn, the token girl. Our mothers met in a prenatal class and became best friends, which meant that the three of us hit every milestone together, from the first day of school to the very first kiss. And beyond.
I've always been caught in the middle between the two boys. I've been in love with Leo since I was eight, even though he doesn't see me as anything but his pal. And I know that Nate's hung up on me. I see the look in his eyes. I wish I could say I felt the same, but I don't. It's getting harder and harder to keep him in the friend zone, though.
Things between the three of us aren't easy anymore. Leo's popular, the football team's star receiver, and the object of every girl's fantasy. I know he doesn't mean to leave us behind, but now Nate and I are just people he used to know.
What used to be so simple is suddenly messy and complicated. Leo is all I've ever wanted, but even if I had the chance to be with him, how would Nate would handle it?
When that chance does come along ... in the most unexpected way ... I'm helpless to resist Leo. What was always meant to be is finally happening ... but will it come at the risk of losing both my friends?

Guest Post from Tawdra
When I was shopping my very first book, I had several agents tell me that my YA book had too much in it about the parents. The family.
At first, I was surprised, and then I was annoyed. For me, the parents (and the family) had a big role to play in this story. I stuck by my feeling, which was a contributing factor when I decided to go indie.
Although When We Were Us is most decidedly not YA, the three main characters are in high school in this book. And since Leo, Nate and Quinn have all been best friends since birth, it's only natural that their parents -- all three sets -- would play a fairly pronounced role in their story. And they do. We get to know a little bit of the Taylors, the Wellmans and the Russells over the course of this book, and although we will see their importance recede over books two and three, they're still present, and important.
One of my favorite scenes in WWWU is between Quinn and both of her parents, when she guesses what they've been up to before she got home. I love to explode the kind of stereotype that says married couples with teenage kids don't have sex. There's no doubt that Quinn's parents are a very loving couple!
