Trailer Reveal: The Darkness Within by Kelly Hashway

Today, I'm helping out a fellow writer by posting a  trailer reveal for her novel. The Darkness Within is the follow on novel from Kelly Hashway's young adult book The Monster Within.

The Darkness Within continues the story of teenager, Samantha and her boyfriend Ethan.

After dying of cancer at seventeen and being brought back to life by an evil witch who turned her into a monster, Samantha Thompson thinks she's finally gotten past all the tragedy in her life. Now she's part of a coven of good witches who are helping her and her boyfriend, Ethan Anderson, learn to use the powers they received from other witches. Aside from the fact that Sam and Ethan are still in hiding from their old lives - the ones they had before Sam was brought back to life - things couldn't be better. Sam and Ethan are inseparable. What could go wrong? 


Ethan's magic came from a witch who'd turned as evil as possible, and though his coven thought he'd be fine, the more he uses his magic, the stranger he starts acting. The magic inside him is changing who he is. One minute he's Sam's sweet, perfect Ethan and the next, he's a complete stranger. Even with all her witchy power, Sam is helpless against the magic corrupting Ethan. Can Sam find out what's wrong with him before she loses him to dark magic forever?

Sound good? Well, here's the trailer I promised.

The novel is out in June this year but you can find more information (and pre order) through the following links:

About the writer:

Kelly Hashway grew up reading R L Stein's Fear Street novels and writing stories of her own, so it was no surprise to her family when she majored in English and later obtained a masters degree in English Secondary Education from East Stroudsburg University. After teaching middle school language arts for seven years, Kelly went back to school and focused specifically on writing. She is now the author of three young adult series, one middle grade series, and several picture books. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she isn't writing, Kelly works as a freelance editor for small presses as well as her own list of clients. In her spare time, she enjoys running, travelling, and volunteering with the PTO. Kelly currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter and two pets. She is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.
