Hey! This post is for a contest I heard about via my writers’ group. Pitching my main manuscript:


Title: Sketchy Moments


Author: Me. Alexa S. Winters


Genre: Contemporary Young Adult


Word count: 53,000


Synopsis: After the most humiliating incident of his life, Elliot “Andreas” Sharpe moves to another foster home armed only with three scars, a locket, and the determination not to like his new family. All Elliot wants is a break: some time off from being the butt of every joke and a few weeks where he doesn’t have to hear the words “Home Kid” even once. Then the Blanchards are welcome to send him along to the next placement, and they can all go about their merry way.


But then it seems as if the family actually cares about him – and Elliot finds himself liking them in return. And when tragedy strikes, bringing him painfully close to losing the girl he loves like a sister, Elliot must choose: run for the hills before things get ugly or risk being hurt worse than ever before.
