Chloe didn't think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can't remember the last six months of her life. Before, she'd been a mediocre student. Now, she's on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he's her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won't speak to her.

What happened to her?

And why can't she remember?

Hi Natalie! We are beyond happy to have you once more in our blogs and even better for our blog anniversary. Thank you so much for celebrating this event with us! :)

I can't say enough good things about the way bloggers have impacted my publishing journey. So many amazing bloggers have embraced me and supported me through this journey and of course I've read some lovely and insightful reviews about Six Months Later. Reviews are critical for writers so I'm so grateful for those who take the time to leave them.

Hermione Granger. I think she's amazing. She's initially sort of this nerdy, annoying, know-it-all, but she works hard, fights her own short-comings and becomes this truly exceptional woman. I love that her mind really is her super power. 

Way too many to think of off the top of my head! Truly, YA is full of insanely talented writers. I will say, you should take the time to read anything put out by Laurie Halse Anderson, John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Romily Bernard, and Barry Lyga, though there are certainly others to add to that list that I'm not thinking of right this second. 

Well, it's gone through a name change!! It's actually GONE TOO FAR :-)

I'm SUPER excited about this book, which is due out in January 2015. This book is chock full of morally questionable choices and explores what motivates people and how we decide what's good and what's bad. In a nutshell, it's a vigilante story about what a girl does when she finds a book of sins and has the chance to make the sinners pay. ;-)

And this would be us when we get our hands into a copy of Gone Too Far

I have no doubt that every single genre presents its own unique challenges, but thrillers can be brutal. You're constantly trying to figure out how to make everyone seem suspicious and every page electric with "what's going to happen???" which can be tough to pull through an entire 300 page manuscript. LOL! That said, I adore it and really love writing them.

Actually, no. LOL! It's so overwhelming, really. I totally prefer life behind the keyboard, because seeing my book in the stores just feels so crazy. For a long while, I was in the Top Teen Picks section in Barnes & Noble RIGHT next to Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Rainbow. Rowell. I'm such a fan, I'd probably squeal and maybe cry if she walked near me, so seeing my book next to hers? Just too nuts. ;-)

That I wouldn't feel one bit different than I did before getting published. I thought I'd know All The Things once I finally got published. Things about the industry and marketing, etc. I know nothing. Less than nothing. I don't learn things every day, I learn things every fifteen minutes. ;-)

I'm reading The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. It's awesome, which is absolutely what I expected. :-)

Thank you so much for having me -- I can't tell you how much I love being with you guys and how happy I am for all that you've accomplished. I wish you SO MUCH success. You absolutely deserve it! :-)

She's the best! And guys, you have to read Six Months Later 'cause Natalie brings mystery and suspense to another level. I couldn't sleep until I know what truly happened to Chloe! Definitely a must read.

At seven, Natalie D. Richards wrote about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn't dare do the dishes.) Now she writes about awesome girls, broody boys, and all things dark and creepy. Natalie lives in Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her techno-wiz husband, three amazing kids, and a seventy pound dust-mop who swears he's the family dog. Her psychological thriller, Six Months Later, will be released in October 1, 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire. Until then, you'll probably find her writing her next book or trying to wade through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. I think it's a tie between The Rear Window (which is more suspense than scary), and Cabin in the Woods (because JOSS WHEDON). Thanks for the giveaway!!

    1. ZOMG -- Joss Whedon for the win. Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  2. The thirteen ghost! Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. do I not know about that one! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. It used to be Hellraiser, but it just does not seem that I have seen a good scary movie in a very long time....

    1. Have you seen The Ring? Because holy crap that one really freaked me out. I don't know if it was genuinely that scary or maybe it was that I had just had a baby when I saw it so I was all hormonally whacky. *shudder* Thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. For me without a single doubt it's The Ring. That movie scared the living crap out of me.

    And PS -- I just started a third book that is really scary. Like scarier than anything I've ever done. Eep!

  5. The scariest movie I saw as a teen was the original NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Every time I tried to fall asleep, I would hear that damn creepy song..."One, two, Freddy's coming for you...three, four...better lock your door..." ::shivers::
    As an adult, I think I would also have to go with The Ring! Good choice, Natalie. Your new book sounds just as amazing as SIX MONTHS LATER. Can't wait to read it.
    Great post! And what a fun blog! Happy Blogaversary to A Reading Nurse!
