In case you didn't know, Shelli Johannes-Wells (AKA S.R. JOHANNES) is a 2012 Georgia Author of the Year YA Nominee, 2012 IndieReader Discovery winner in YA, and Author of Amazon bestselling novel UNTRACEABLE, which is available in paperback and ebook at all booksellers.
Today, we're here to help her celebrate the release of her next YA novel, UNCONTROLLABLE and if you leave a comment below, you could own an eCopy yourself! I had the absolute pleasure of reading this book, but will save my review later, maybe even at the end of her tour. Instead, Shelli is here to chat with you about the Essentials When Preparing For a Book Release. But before she begins, take a peek at what UNCONTROLLABLE is about.
Description: As Grace recovers from tragedy, her science class is chosen by Agent Sweeney at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to help with research on the new "Red Wolf Reintroduction Program".
While she’s excited about helping with the conservation of the endangered wolves, Grace knows this means being outdoors in the worst winter recorded, in a place she no longer feels comfortable. It also means working closely with Wyn (her ex) and his annoying girlfriend (Skyler), a girl whose idea of getting close to nature is picking silk plants and growing fake plants.
After a couple of wolves show up dead, Grace almost quits. However, when a fellow project team member goes missing, Grace continues the assignment under a renewed suspicion that someone might be sabotaging the conservation program. She quietly begins to hunt for clues.
Little does she know, she is being hunted too.
