Farsighted by Emlyn Chand: book trailer and info

Hey guys! Sorry for the double Sunday post, but this was something I just had to blog about! My writer pal Emlyn, who runs the awesome site Novel Publicity, has a book coming out next month. It's called Farsighted, and it sounds excellent! She just released the trailer for it, and I absolutely love it - hence the extra blog post today, so I could share it with all of you!

Synopsis: Alex Kosmitoras’s life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead-broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he's blind. Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to “see” the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex must embark on a journey to change his future.

In this enthralling debut novel, Emlyn Chand creates a world in which friendship, perseverance, and a handful of psychic powers come together to fight against what appears to be the inevitable and all-too dangerous future. This is a book you won’t want to put down—even after you finish it!

About Emlyn: Emlyn Chand has always loved to hear and tell stories, having emerged from the womb with a fountain pen grasped firmly in her left hand (true story). When she's not writing, she runs a large book club in Ann Arbor and is the president of author PR firm, Novel Publicity. Emlyn loves to connect with readers and is available throughout the social media interweb. Visit for more info. Don’t forget to say “hi” to her sun conure Ducky!

Also, be sure to check out the YA Trailer Park, where Emlyn's trailer for Farsighted is featured. Annnd, just to throw in a little bit of shameless self-promotion, my trailer for Blue Sky Days is up there, too. :-)

One last bit of excitement before I sign off to go watch Pirates of the Caribbean with my nephew: Emlyn's having a giveaway for 10 autographed copies of Farsighted on GoodReads. You can check that out and enter here.
