Kimberly Sabatini is counting down the days to the release of her debut novel, TOUCHING THE SURFACE, published by Simon Pulse, a division of Simon & Schuster. Since this week is also linked to Darcy Patterson’s Random Acts of Publicity, I’m choosing Kim’s book to highlight.
I haven’t read it yet, since it comes out October 30, but I’m willing to give it a shout-out and an old-school fist pump. Why? Because Kimberly Sabatini is one of the nicest people around. Really.
After I attended my first SCBWI conference in New York, I wrote about how Kim extended herself, making me feel welcome in a place where I didn’t know anyone. You can read about that by clicking here.
Let’s be honest, the online world can be venomous. In fact, I refuse to read the comments section of any online news outlet. What starts as conversation turns into vile, childish name-calling. I mention this because I met Kim online and she has always been positive and supportive. Her genuine optimism is refreshing and appreciated. It makes me want to root for her. Go, Kim!

Here is the description of her novel on Amazon:
“When Elliot finds herself dead for the third time, she knows she must have messed up, big-time. She doesn’t remember how she landed in the afterlife again, but she knows this is her last chance to get things right.
“Elliot just wants to move on, but first she will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed…and people she’s killed.
“As she pieces together the secrets and mistakes of her past, Elliot must find a way to earn the forgiveness of the person she’s hurt most, and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.”
Sounds good, right? Go ahead and pre-order it! You can find it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble or by clicking one of the links above. Best wishes for much success to Kimberly Sabatini!
