Beautiful wild-child Nicole Tepper is hit by a car one night while walking home, and is left for dead.

But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself back in her own bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well.

Then, in Melissa Pearl‘s novel “Betwixt” things take a turn for the weird when Nicole discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her broken and bruised body is lying in the forest, while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her.

Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.

Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it’s too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car beat Dale there and finish Nicole off before anyone finds out?

More below the media player.

The Indie Author Life

Even someone like Melissa Pearl, who gets rave reader reviews, gets a stinker now and then. As she wrote in a recent blog, the “Indie Life – It’s All About Attitude”:

Readers are honest and they have every right to be. You have put yourself out there and they are free to respond to your work as they see fit. Unfortunately that can be a really painful experience. Getting those five star reviews puts you on cloud nine. You feel elated that someone out there thinks your work rocks. You have given them an escape from reality and they have enjoyed it. But then come the one and two star reviews and these sting. Your work is torn to shreds as readers find every mistake and reason not to like it. Ouch! It really hurts.
