beautiful mess cover reveal & chapter sample

beaut mess

Woah, crazy. Two posts in two days, what is going on, Danielle????? Well, the lovely people at Text Publishing were kind enough to choose me as part of the big cover reveal for Claire Christian’s novel, Beautiful Mess. This novel was chosen as the winner of the 2016 Text Prize, so of course, it’s got to be pretty spectacular, am I right?

If you missed the reveal on my Instagram or Twitter, then do not fret, as here it is in all it’s sparkly, beautiful glory!



Since Ava lost Kelly, things haven’t been going so well. Even before she gets thrown out of school for shouting at the principal, there’s the simmering rage and all the weird destructive choices. The only thing going right for Ava is her job at Magic Kebab.

Which is where she meets Gideon. Skinny, shy, anxious Gideon. A mad poet and collector of vinyl records with an aversion to social media. He lives in his head. She lives in her grief. The only people who can help them move on with their lives are each other.


Chapter sample can be read here.


Isn’t it just gorgeous? And it sounds like such a cute, heartwarming read as well! The book isn’t released until the 28th of August, 2017, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get excited for it now! You can even pre-order it, so you have it as soon as it’s released!

Pre-orders are available on Text Website, Booktopia, and Book Depository.



Did you read the chapter sample? Are you pumped for this release?

Thanks again to Text for including me in this exciting reveal, I can’t wait to read the novel once it’s out!

Until next time,
