Blitz ~ Every Little Piece by Kate Ashton {Guest Post + Excerpt + Giveaway}

Welcome to the Book Blitz for

Every Little Piece by Kate Ashton

Every Little Piece

by Kate Ashton

Release Date - May 2013
Genre - Mature YA Contemporary


Secrets never stay in the past. 

The night before high school graduation changes everything. Lies are told. Mistakes are made. Secrets tucked away. Lives are changed in the span of a few hours. 

A year later, Haley is still reeling, numb with the constant ache of guilt. She's in a place she never expected to be: lost without her friends and Seth. Until he enters her life again, dredging up everything she's trying to forget. Everything about that night. 

Seth returns to his hometown determined to share his truth, his side of the story. He desperately needs to make things right with Haley, even if it means losing her forever. Because the truth will ruin any chance of her ever loving him again. 

Except neither of them are prepared for the shock of what really happened the night before graduation. 


“I gotta hang up,” I whispered. 

Suddenly I got the intense desire to see him. To wrap him in my arms and smell his hair and the cologne he splashed on his neck. I wanted to feel his fingers play with the ends of my hair while he rubbed my back. I wanted to flop down on my bed with him and make-out for hours and then fall asleep so close that nothing could tear us apart. 

"Wish I could see you.” My voice was shaky, the emotion having its way with me. 

He heard it. “I can ditch the guys and be over there in ten. You just say the word.” 

I paused, almost ready to take his offer. The giddiness of being with my friends had already faded within the minutes I’d been on the phone. 

I heard giggling outside the door and hushed whispers. I needed my friends tonight just as much as they needed me. They were just as much a part of my high school life as Seth. 

“I can’t. But I’ll call if I get a chance to sneak away.” 

“My phone is on and in my pocket. Love you, babe.” 

“Love you, too.” 

I pressed End and shoved the phone in my back pocket. I stood in front of the mirror. This one had a tiny crack in the top right corner and the tiniest of slivers that stopped right in the center. Any day, any second, it could shatter into pieces on the floor. Scattered shards. Impossible to put back together. But it had been that way for years and probably would be for another twenty. 

My greenish-brown eyes stared back at me, questioning. I’d promised to spend the rest of the night in full-out party mode. 

This night was for me.

Moments To Remember 

by Kate Ashton 

No, Kate Ashton, the author, the person, is no longer in high school. But I remember. I absolutely loved my friends and we did everything together. We laughed. We cried. We partied. We made mistakes. We forgave. We didn’t forgive. We did crazy, stupid things. 

We had a blast. 

All those memories, the laughter, the tears, are woven into my memories. Certain songs connect me to a memory and I’ll smile. It’s those memories, not the same exact ones, but the emotion behind them that sneak into my writing. 

Every Little Piece is a story with many different layers. It’s about friendship, love and the complications that come with that. I walked away from writing this story realizing something new about myself. That I need to hold onto those moments happening in my life right now. That someday down the road, I’ll look back on 2013, my friends, my family--and realize I was having a blast. 

Make sure to hold onto your moments, the good and the bad, because we can’t have one without the other.
