Über diesen Titel:
Alex Kosmitoras may be blind, but he can still "see" things others can't. When his unwanted visions of the future begin to suggest that the girl he likes could be in danger, he has no choice but to take on destiny and demand it reconsider.
Evolved Publishing presents the first in a 5-part series, Farsighted, by award-winning author Emlyn Chand. YA / ROMANCE / PARANORMAL / FANTASY
Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and... oh yeah, he's blind.
Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.
Alex is in store for another new arrival--an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, he is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they suggest Simmi is in mortal danger.
With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.
***Open Heart, the second book in the Farsighted series, is now available for purchase!

Whether you've read my books in the past or are still trying to decide whether they're something you'd like to read, I'm glad you're here. It's readers like you that have made all my crazy dreams--you know the ones that everyone said were impossible--come true. You are the ones who keep me writing, keep me inspired, keep me sane. And for that, I owe you a gigantic thank you.
You see, I started writing as a way to feel a little less lonely in this far too impersonal world. Since then, I've made it my mission to write and talk about the issues facing today's youth, the issues that are often overlooked in entertainment because they're conceived as gritty, taboo, or simply "too depressing."
In the Farsighted Series, I tackle topics like racism, self-esteem and eating disorders, physical disabilities, and teen substance abuse.
In the Bird Brain Books, the lessons are far simpler--remember to say thank you when someone does something nice for you, know that who you are is what makes you special rather than what you look like, appreciate love, friendship, and beauty where ever you can find it.
I've connected with some amazing people who share my same outlook on today's literary landscape, and I've made fantastic friends in the process. At the end of the day, I love hearing from people who've read my books, and I welcome emails, Facebook messages, tweets--any way you'd like to get in touch with me, it just makes my day.
Every now and then, I like to reach out to readers with free Advance Review Copies or other giveaways on my site, and I'm planning to do so much more of that in 2013. To keep up with these opportunities, please come on over and subscribe to my newsletter at EmlynChand.com/contact.
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Facebook, Twitter, or GoodReads. I look forward to hearing from you!
