Shut Out Trailer - Teaser Day 1 - Lissa!

So for the next week, Vania over at VLC Photo and I will be bringing to you a series of teasers for the SHUT OUT trailer, complete with photos, giveaways, and special excerpts you'll find right here on my blog!

Today, we're kicking off the week by introducing you to Lissa, the main character in SHUT OUT!

Lissa's a tad bit neurotic, a control freak, and a literature buff. I think this short excerpt might give you the best sense of just what kind of girl Lissa Daniels is. So, without further ado - a sneak peak of SHUT OUT!

. . . .I hurriedly turned my attention back to the book. Don’t think about him, I told myself, keeping my eyes trained on the page as I picked up my red pen. Don’t think about him. . . . Just keep reading. . . .

“Lissa,” Cash said slowly, drawing out the A at the end of my name. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but . . . Did you just mark a typo in your book?”

I bit my lip. “No. Of course not. Why would you say that?”

“Because you just marked something on the page with a red ink pen—like the ones teachers use to check papers.”

“No, I didn’t.”


“What?” I asked, ducking my head. “You’re imagining things.”

And that's Lissa! Now, time to see her in the flesh. Here's a great shot of Lissa from the SHUT OUT trailer!

Isn't she adorable? And if you're wondering about the Cosmo, I'll explain that tomorrow when we talk about The Pact.

But, in the mean time, do you want to win some free stuff? I know you do.

For the next few days, VLC Photo and I will be showing off photos of the SHUT OUT Trailer cast on our blogs and on twitter. Each day, we'll be giving away a free, signed print of the featured character to a winner on twitter.

What do you have to do?

Just tweet the following:

"I want to win a free print from #ShutOutTrailer from @VLC_Photo and @Kody_Keplinger."

We'll pick a random winner at the end of the day!

And, one week from today, the official SHUT OUT Book Trailer will premier. We'll be announcing a BIG giveaway then - one with a grand prize that includes signed copies of SHUT OUT, some ARCs, and other killer swag. So stay tuned!

In the meantime GET TO TWEETING! And be sure to follow me and @VLC_Photo on twitter to see more sneak peaks of Lissa and the rest of the cast!
