Dangerous Boys are on their way…

by admin on June 22, 2014

I’m so excited to share the cover and blurb for DANGEROUS BOYS, my follow-up to DANGEROUS GIRLS!

It all comes down to this: Oliver, Ethan, and I.

Three teens venture into an abandoned lake house one night. Hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding.  The other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder . . .?
Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece the story together – a story of jealousy, twisted passion and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful faces.

***

What do you think? DANGEROUS BOYS will be published August 14th, and I can’t wait for you to meet Chloe and the boys. It’s not a sequel, but I can promise you that it’s just as dark, twisted, and thrilling as DG.

Don’t believe me? Here are some early reviews!

Haas delivers something better than a murder mystery… she delivers complex psychology that had me questioning everything, wondering if I should be looking over my own damn shoulder, and hanging on every single word…This story fascinated me on every level. ***** 5 stars. – Emily May, Goodreads.com

Abigail Hass has delivered another nail bitingly suspenseful book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and tips of your toes…This is a special book and a special author. This is the kind of storytelling and writing that stick with you no matter how much time passes. ***** 5 stars – The Book Geek Reviews

As with Dangerous Girls, the closing left me with a huge, admittedly rather twisted smile on my face. I don’t know how Haas manages to turn me into such a gleefully evil creature every time, but when you find an author who makes you embrace your inner sociopath, you become a fan for life. — ***** 5 stars. — Dahlia Adler

Can’t wait? Add now to your Goodreads list, and UK readers — preorder from amazon.

Dangerous things..

by admin on July 9, 2013

The first reviews of Dangerous Girls are going up, and I am LOVING your reactions. Seriously, just imagine me sitting here, cackling with evil glee as you freak the hell out.

“Dangerous Girls was incredible. Very chilling.” – Sugarscape.com

A selection from goodreads:

“Completely and utterly hooked me in. I literally could not put it down… A fab read if you love murder mysteries, intrigue, and to be kept guessing.” – Kirsty (overflowinglibrary.com)

“Oh. My. F*&^ing. God.” – River (innocencewalker.wordpress.com)

“Dangerous Girls is one of the best YA thrillers I’ve ever read and is a must-read for summer!” – Jessica (jessheartsbooks.blogspot.com)

“Very clever, tightly-plotted thriller with characters and events that will keep you guessing until the last page.” – Allie (thebookstalker.com)

“WHAT THE EFFFFF?!” – Steph (poetrytoprose.com)

“This book astounded me, shocked me, startled me, and ultimately left me with my mouth agape at the sheer brilliance of it all once I turned the last page.” – Blythe (Findingblissinbooks.blogspot.com)

(Can I get that one printed on a T-shirt? Or left as my voicemail? Seriously!)

DG is out in just a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for the blog tour, and all kinds of goodies.

And Then He Kissed Me…

by admin on July 4, 2013

Today is the publication of Walker’s fab romantic short-story anthology, AND THEN HE KISSED ME.

Toe-curlingly good (and bad!) kisses, boys next door, spots on date night, first love, unlove, passion, heartbreak…and other unnatural disasters. This is a collection of romantic short stories from some of today’s bestselling women’s and teen fiction writers. Ever fallen in love? Ever fallen out of love? Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have…? Nine authors write about first kisses, love, heartbreak and everything in between in this short story anthology. It is a unique collection combining the work of bestselling women’s fiction writers and children’s authors. Authors include: women’s writers Cathy Kelly, Monica McInerney, Adele Parks and Sinead Moriarty; and teen authors Katie Dale, Abby McDonald, Joanna Nadin, Dyan Sheldon and Sarah Webb.

I’m so excited to share the stage with so many amazing authors. My story, EXTRACURRICULARS, follows the chaos (and, perhaps, kissing) that ensues when a reclusive book-worm finds her secret library spot invaded by the year twelve Romeo. It was a lot of fun to distil a story to just a few thousand words, and this also has the dubious honor of being the first thing I’ve written set at my old sixth form college in Sussex, England.

AND THEN HE KISSED ME is available in British bookstores, and to order online! Check it out.

Dangerous Girls isn’t like my other teen books. It opens with a murder, for a start. And after that? Things get a whole [...]
