Cover Reveal: Better by S. Walden

Last month, I read S. Walden’s first book, Good, and absolutely fell in love with it. The Good duology is about 17-year-old Cadence’s relationship with her high school Math teacher. Unique and untraditional, this new adult series is exciting and well-written. I absolutely cannot wait to start the second book in the series, Better, and I’m so excited to have been chosen to debut the absolutely stunning cover of this novel.

I normally don’t do cover reveals or book blasts or anything like that…but I had to make an exception for this book, because I really did love Good and, because of that, I want to be able to support S. Walden as an indie author. So I hope you guys go and check out the first book in the series (which is ON SALE FOR 99¢ RIGHT NOW), so that you can get ready for the release of Better, which comes out in a couple of weeks.


Title: Better

Author: S. Walden

Series: Too Good (#2)

Publisher: Self-published

Expected Publication Date: 11-19-13


Their relationship has been exposed, and now their lives are changed forever.

 For Cadence Miller, the fast track to adulthood proves intimidating and frustrating. She’s a little girl lost—abandoned by her parents and uncertain of her future. She doesn’t think she “fits” anywhere. She’s eighteen. She wants to be older. And the result is both comical and heartbreaking.

 Mark Connelly will do anything to provide Cadence a stable, loving home—to be her protector. But he’s just as broken and lost, and his heart won’t let go of his past so easily. He knows he must share his secret with Cadence. And he hopes his revelation won’t tear them apart. He hopes it will draw them closer, and make their love better.

Teaser Excerpt:

She made sure to look as inconspicuous as possible for her first day of classes: jean shorts, tank top, flip flops. She kept her hair down but pulled it off her face with a headband. She wore a tad bit of makeup. Nothing showy, but she thought first day classes warranted mascara and lip gloss, at the least.

 She slid into a seat in the row closest to the windows. She didn’t bother to look for Michael. Or save him a seat. She still wasn’t sure about that guy. She felt guilty for not telling Mark about Michael’s kissing comment. She wanted a friend, but she was unsure if he was a good one. She scanned the room for somebody better. She needed a girlfriend. And there was one sitting directly behind her.

 “Hi,” Cadence said tentatively.

 “Hi,” the girl replied.

 Cadence wasn’t sure what else to say. Neither was the girl. That was until she recognized Cadence.

 “You went to Crestview High.”

 Cadence’s face fell. “Yeah.”

 “My friend went there. She graduated with you.”

 Cadence nodded.

 The girl leaned in and whispered, “Did you really have an affair with your math teacher?”
