Bad Reputation Preview

  Bad Reputation comes out tomorrow! Oh. My. God. I am so excited. I am so proud of this book, and I cannot wait for you guys to read it. And now, I'm sharing the first chapter with you guys. One more thing I want to mention is that I'm not going to be blogging and vlogging very often anymore. Basically, I want to focus more on writing my books. And with that, let's read this first chapter.


  I walked down the street, holding Alex’s hand. My friends, Robin, Georgia, and Anne were walking next to us.

  “I had a good time tonight,” I told Alex.

  He had taken my friends and me to play laser tag. I had never been before. I couldn’t afford it.

  Alex stepped in front of me and looked down at me. “You did?”

  I grinned, turning to my friends. “You guys go ahead, I’ll catch up.”

  They giggled and kept walking.

  “You wanna have an even better time?” Alex asked, leaning down to kiss me.

  After we kissed I said, “You know I can’t. I have to get home. My dad’s probably worried about me.”

  Truthfully, I wasn’t ready for a “better time”. Alex was older than me. He was seventeen. I was only fifteen. He usually understood that I wasn’t ready, but sometimes he got kind of pushy.

  Alex sighed. “Alright. Do you want me to walk you home?”

  I shook my head. “It’s an extra three blocks. You don’t have to do that. I’m walking home with the girls anyway.”

  “Alright. I’ll see you at school tomorrow.”

  I kissed him again. “Bye.”

  As I walked to catch up with my friends I thought about how great things were going. Not only did I finally have friends, but I also had a boyfriend!

  It took me a long time to make friends. Not because I’m shy, or anything like that. I’m actually really outgoing. But my brother screwed things up for me. He was constantly getting into trouble and was always doing stints in Juvie. People were really scared of him around here. But he left Los Angeles three years ago. It’s been just my dad and me ever since. Even though my dad is an alcoholic, he and I get along fine. The problem is that everyone thought that I was like my brother. I hope I’m never like him. It took me until this summer to prove to everyone that I was my own person. I made friends with some of the girls in my apartment complex, and I met Alex at the pizza place down the street. So yeah, everything’s going great.

  I sniffed the air. I smelled smoke. Weird.

  “Chrissy!” Georgia called.

  I ran to the corner where they were standing.

  “Oh my god!” I cried.

  Our apartment complex was on fire. The whole thing.

  My friends and I ran down the street. There was a crowd of people standing across the street.

  “Someone call 911!” I shouted.

  “They’re on their way,” Someone told me.

  I looked at the complex. It was blazing. The fire department would never make it on time. I looked at my building, at the window on the second floor, fourth from the right. There was someone standing at the window.

  “Dad!” I yelled. I lunged forward, but someone grabbed my arm.

  “It’s not safe,” They said.

  And then the building collapsed.

Bad Reputation and Daughter of Darkness Cover Reveal!

  I just got the covers for Bad Reputation and Daughter of Darkness yesterday, and I am in love! They are both so beautiful, and I couldn't wait to share them with you guys. So, here they are!



  Ahhhh! I'm so excited! I am extremely happy with both of these covers. I had one idea of what I wanted for each cover. I knew that I wanted a starry night sky in the background on Bad Reputation's cover, and I knew I wanted Daughter of Darkness to have a red and black cover. But the final results? Perfect. Amazing. They are everything I could have asked for.

  If you haven't preordered the ebooks yet, I'll leave the links down below. As usual, the paperback won't be available to order until the release days.

Click the tab up above that says "Get Emails From Me", and follow the link. So, anyway, I'm releasing two new books! They're both coming out next month!

About Daughter of Darkness:

  Daughter of Darkness is the first book in the Jennifer Jones: Vampire Hunter series. The series follows Jennifer Jones, her two best friends, and her boyfriend through their senior year at White Grimm High School. Jennifer is one of the most feared vampire hunters out there, but her classmates are oblivious. In the Daughter of Darkness, Jennifer drinks vampire blood, hoping to both infiltrate the vampire world and upstage her friends' last slaying. But as she gets to know a group of vampires, she begins to wonder if killing them is the right choice.
  I have been working on this whole series on and off for a while now, and I'm so happy to be able to finally be publishing it. Daughter of Darkness is coming out on June 19th! I will send the preorder links to you guys on that day, and once the cover is ready to be revealed, I'll be sending that to you guys early, too.

About Bad Reputation:

  Bad Reputation follows Chrysanthemum, a fourteen year old from Los Angeles. When her dad dies in a fire, Chrysanthemum, better known as Chrissy, is in danger of going into foster care. She contacts her brother, who ditched her for Las Vegas years ago, and convinces him to pretend to be eighteen so he can adopt her. Chrissy hates life in Vegas. And things go from bad to worse when Chrissy's brother, Joshua, kills someone in a fight.
  I am so proud of this story. I feel like it's some of my best work yet, and I'm so excited to be sharing it with you. It will be out on June 5th! Like Daughter of Darkness, I will send the preorder links to you guys, as well as the cover when the cover is ready to be revealed.

  So, that's my announcement! I can't wait for you guys to read these books! I know I've been kind of absent lately, but I'm trying to get back on track. I've been dealing with a lot of issues caused by my chronic pain, but I'm starting to feel better.

Until next time,

Sunshine G. Bruno
