Every Girl Dies

Today I decided to publish the first book in my Every Girl Dies trilogy. I published it on kindle a month ago under another name, only to test the waters and got amazing feedback ( I included the reviews at the bottom of the post )  It was downloaded over 500 times without me marketing it in any way.

I don't know if I mentioned this before but I wrote 12 books ( oops ) but I am not sure if I want to publish all of them. I'll will post later about how this happened

The book will be available from June 10th on kindle for 2.99 I think. I might also publish it as 10 episode book where every episode is for free so if you find that you like the book at some point, you can purchase the full version. Feedback is appreciated on this idea.

If you're wondering about the Title. I got the idea from the famous quote which inspired the film Braveheart by William Ross Wallace. It says: 
"Every man dies - not every man really lives."

And the manipulator of words and re-liar of lies I am ( you will get that when you know me better ) I twisted it into:

"Every GIRL dies - not every Girl really lives."

Which perfectly describes my sixteen year old protagonist, Deka Tenderstone's condition in the book which is a dystopian young adult with a tinge of romance.

Every Girl Dies trilogy by Cameron Jace
Here is the blurb:
Every girl dies - not every girl really lives.

In a dystopian future in Los Angeles where every sixteen-year-old is ranked on a scale from one to ten to determine their future, Deka Tenderstone sacrifices her rank to save her best friend Woo whom she believes is still alive after being forced to attend the Monster Show, a brutal sacrificing ritual where rebellious, outranked teens are labelled Monsters and get to fight for their lives on TV because they are considered bad kids who are a threat to society.

In her journey, Deka has meets with reckless Leo, who is unlike anyone she knows. While Deka and Leo can't stand each other, she will find out why she doesn't fit into any rank and why her mom tried to kill her when she was a seven.

Nothing will stand in her way as she has to makes choices concerning love, life, staying alive, growing up, and finding out who she really is.

End of blurb 

Of course I know it will turn out that there is another two or three books that either have a similar name or have a similar story line and other will point out at it  LOL
that's ok if it happens. Every Girl Lies is also very original ( not as original as Snow White Sorrow ) but it will give you a glimpse of how my books sound like. 

Reviews for Every Girl Dies ( when first published under a different name )

"Need more of these. possibly in my top tens. most people would say this is a rip off/parody of the hunger games. i say no to that."
