Indie-pendence Amy Evans and her book Clicks!

It’s Indiependence day

A day to celebrate the Indie Authors! I got to meet a fabolous author at the UtopYA Conference in Nashville, TN and do a little bit of shopping and lunch with her. One fun fact! We both drive White Mazda 5’s. LOL

I also love the fact that she writes clean fiction. So with no further ado here is a little bit about Amy.

Clicks – When you just know. 
Born and bred to win, Cami’s family expects her to join a secret society called The Guard, marry one of the two identical twin boys next door, and stay on Pinhold Island for the rest of her life. But she has other plans: work beach patrol, win the Surf Carnival and leave Pinhold to compete in international surf rescue competitions and see the world.
 
Home to epic waves and black sand beaches, Pinhold Island is regularly voted the top surf spot in the country. People come from all over the world to ride the waves or just relax in the natural beauty and rejuvenating water. While visitors are jealous of the few hundred people who get to live there, sixteen year old Cami feels stifled and trapped by her small community and her family’s expectations. Thanks to the intense link she shares with her twin brother Mica, she can’t even be alone with her thoughts. As descendants of the ten families who originally settled on Pinhold, Cami and Mica are part of a new generation of extreme surf lifeguards who are expected to earn invitations into The Guard.
 
But a seemingly small injury knocks her out of the first event and turns her summer upside down. It’s suddenly impossible for Cami to resist the magnetic attraction to Blake, one of the twins next door; the one she’s never been interested in. Just as the Surf Carnival competition starts to heat up, the best swimmers start to drown. Pulled to the ocean floor, they’re found barely alive, stuck in unexplainable comas. When Mica goes down too, Cami can no longer wait for those in charge to figure out how to help him. To save the lives of her brother and their friends, Cami must ignore what she sees and what she’s told, and instead must learn to trust the clicks, her instincts, that help her find the truth in her heart even when it goes against everything her brain thinks it knows.

What the READERS are saying.

I cannot put his book down! Written for young adults, Clicks is part adventure, part mystery, part sic fi with a romantic thread. I’m deciding to recommend to my 11 yo, but a must read for someone who wants a riveting read unlike anything else! –Esther Feldbaum

This novel reminded me of a mix between Sarah Dessen and Stephen King. It’s full of twists and turns and is far from predictable. I suggest this novel to anyone who enjoys a book that makes them think and to anyone who loves a cute teenage romance.–A.K. Groupie

I finished The Pinhold Prophecy in two nights, and could barely put it down the whole time. The plot is full of unexpected twists and turns, and the author’s description of the Surf Carnival and the entire island life made me feel like I was right there. I especially appreciated the real-world environmental and social undertones. This book is great for anyone interested in an engaging summer beach read or a fresh, new take on the coming-of-age novel. Highly recommended.–Rob


Amy Evans is a storyteller, wife, mother with a life-long obsession with the ocean. In addition to writing books, she loves developing story worlds for all kinds of technology. 

She loves dolphins, aliens and pugs, and sometimes writes for so long they all look like the same thing. 

Clicks is her debut novel about instincts, a Surf Carnival, and the hottest beach patrol on the California coast. Clicks are the sounds that the universe makes when it warns you that your world is about to change forever. If you listen to them, you get on the wave before it crests; control your path, surf into your destiny. If you ignore them, the wave crashes around you, and you try desperately not to drown.
