Creative Writing Student Publishes First Novel
MSA Creative Writing student Chloe Helton has published her first novel! It is now available in print, just in time for the holidays! Helton is a prolific author, and her highly anticipated young adult novel And The Stars Wept, is indeed a labor of love.
“I have been submitting my work on the story-sharing site Wattpad for several years, and a scout from Pulse Publishing contacted me about submitting to the publisher,” she says of her writing journey.
The novel centers around newly orphaned Cassandra Clark, who just wants to provide for herself and her brother, Joshua, who seems hell-bent on joining the Union Army. Unable to stop him, she follows him into the horrors of the Civil War. At the camp, Cassie meets Beth, a fellow nurse with a secret threatening to tear her apart. With nobody left to live for, Cassandra and Beth soon face a tragic choice: become victims of the nation’s bloodiest war, or face it head-on.
And The Stars Wept is available through Pulse Publishing as both a digital ebook ($2.49) or in paperback ($12.95) Buy your copy here.
