Torn between two realities.

A choice that will mean life or death.

She won’t know anything… until she wakes up.

College sophomore, Lila Spencer lived Friday night twice. She doesn’t know how or why, just that she did. As if she split in half and went in two different directions.

Out clubbing with her friends, Heather and Nilah, the girls rock it out and party hard. What begins as an innocent night will lead to a deadly fight for their lives, and Lila might be their only chance for survival.

In bed with her boyfriend, Jay, Lila is safe and warm as she drifts to sleep in the arms of the man she loves. Until she is sucked into a horrifying nightmare of her friends’ deaths.

As the sunlight warms her face on Saturday morning, the two scenarios collide. But there can be only one outcome. Will she wake up in her warm bed with Jay by her side, devastated and grieving for her friends? Or was she there to save them?

The answer is just the beginning.


Interesting Facts About BITTER ANGEL (Part 1) by Megan Hand
1.)   Lila and Jay are high school sweethearts, trying to make a long distance thing work. They come from different broken backgrounds, which makes them more understanding of each other, more cosmically linked, but they equally struggle with specific weaknesses. These will come out during the story.2.)   For this story, I had to write the most evil characters I’ve ever written. Ever!
3.)   Lila is tough, snarky at times, and brave to the point of putting herself in danger, but she loves with her whole heart. For me, that redeems her in some of her unthinking moments.
4.)   Lila’s stubbornness was definitely inspired by my own. I think it’s impossible not to put pieces of yourself into your characters. It was a really cool thing, though, to watch her evolve and develop her own brand of stubbornness and become her own person that way.
5.)   For the clubbing scenes, I listened to G6 and Wiz Khalifa’s Black and Yellow on repeat. It really inspired the thumping base and the wild feel. I felt like I was right there, booty shaking with Lila. For some of the later, most badass scenes, I listened to a specific song from the Black Hawk Down soundtrack. The lack of words and the intensity of the instruments totally set the mood. I actually found myself acting out some of the moves as I wrote them. Fisting my hands, standing taller, sneering. It was hilarious, and thank goodness no one was watching me.

megan handAt twelve, Megan decided to write a novel. A month later, she quit. A reading junkie by nature, she started writing again in her twenties as a way to get the voices out, because who wouldn’t want to create a Real Living Person out of thin air?
Megan also plays the piano and sings. She teaches little kids and takes pictures of pretty butterflies. She eats way too much chocolate, is sort of a mad scientist with her blender, and spends an unhealthy amount of time LOLing on Facebook and Twitter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and very smiley son. Bitter Angel is her first published novel.
