I’m delighted to offer the APOLLO ACADEMY cover reveal as my Thursday’s Children post. I met Kim last year when I was pre-agent and just entering the world of CPs, contests, and in short, sharing my writing with strangers. She had an agent and therefore in my view, had at least one foot in The Promised Land. She was a judge/mentor in two contests I entered and was unfailingly gracious, enthusiastic and encouraging-a perfect role model for giving back. Writers like Kim made me want to host a writing contest too, and fortunately my partner in crime, Kristina Perez, was eager to do the same and we’re about to launch the Like A Virgin contest!

Now I get to say “thank you!” to Kim in a meaningful way. Without further ado…

THE APOLLO ACADEMY by Kimberly P. Chase
Launches: 8.6.13

ABOUT: As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. All she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-prone life for the stars. Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting. Everything would be perfect if it weren’t for her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.

Early praise for The Apollo Academy:“I am obsessed with this book! Suspenseful, sexy, and just a great read!” -Cora Carmack, New York Times Bestselling author of LOSING IT.

“Exquisite worldbuilding, thrilling suspense, and a sexy flight instructor! Chase’s exciting debut novel is one you don’t want to miss.” – K.A.Tucker, Author of Ten Tiny Breaths and One Tiny LieAdd The Apollo Academy to your GoodReads Shelf!


Kimberly P. Chase holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, which basically means she’s kind of a geek and loves flying airplanes. Naturally, her books tend to include aviation, hot flight instructors, aviator glasses, and—let’s not forget—kissing! When Kimberly’s not writing or reading, she’s hanging out with her husband, four-year-old son, and two dogs
