Guest Post by Kirsty Eagar - Night Beach

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I am so thrilled to have Kirsty Eagar stopping by my blog today!  Today Kirsty is talking about her upcoming novel Night Beach which is set to be published in February, 2012.  There is no synopsis for it yet so I am excited that Kirsty was able to share some details with us.

Night Beach – the story


Hey, thank you for having me guys! So, Night Beach … Probably the first thing I should say is that it’s not published in Australia until February next year, and I’m currently in the middle of the edits. What that means is that there is no nice, neat blurb for it as yet. Today is the literary equivalent of me showing you around an unfinished house!


The story is about a girl called Abbie Young. She’s seventeen, and in so many ways, she’s in-between:


Staring at the carnival from a distance. Not sure if I want to go forward and become an adult; liking the candy too much to turn back. Drinking and cars and Kane and freedom. All those glittering lights.

Abbie has grown up surfing at Walls, a break renowned for its graffiti-covered sea wall and aggressive locals. For Abbie, the ocean is a refuge, providing her with a sense of ‘home’, something otherwise lost to her in the wake of her parents’ acrimonious divorce. Since the divorce, Abbie feels like she’s also ‘split’, playing different roles according to each parent’s expectations. But at the beach, she’s in touch with a wilder, truer self.

Abbie has two obsessions. The first is art. Now in her final year of high school, she’s hard at work on an assessment piece that explores ‘beyond the sea’. But the phrase begins to take on supernatural connotations as she becomes aware of the disturbing changes in her step-cousin Kane – her second obsession.

If you didn’t know Kane, you wouldn’t call him hot. He’s got the surfer body, a top heavy V on short powerful legs, and it’s wrapped in a good tan, but he’s also got thick blond hair on his chest and forearms and legs. It marks him, makes him more masculine than surfing’s poster boys
What Kane’s got, though, is an intensity – compressed ambition. He’s always had it and it makes people notice him. Today, it seems to be stronger and not so controlled, like he’s changed to a higher octane fuel and isn’t sure how to handle the power.

Kane has recently returned from a surf trip overseas, during which he and his friends disregarded the locals’ wishes and stayed overnight on a forbidden island. Kane won’t say what happened on the trip, he refuses to explain the strange wounds on his back, and his increasingly violent behaviour soon sets him on a collision course with an alpha male from the surf break.

What’s more frightening to Abbie, though, is the darkness she senses shadowing Kane. A darkness that seems to be affecting her. As Abbie’s reality begins to warp, she finds herself sucked into the Beyond, a place with links to her own subconscious. A place with its own rules, rules that mean she might not make it back. The first rule being that what the sea wants, the sea shall have …


WOW.  I think after reading that I need Night Beach right now!  It sounds amazing.  Thank you Kirsty for stopping by.

This sounds amazing! I love how the ocean is such a big part of your books. I'm also interested in the supernatural aspects of Night Beach. It sounds like it will be pretty dark, which I always enjoy. I can't wait to read it!

Jan von Harz said...

OMG I want Night Beach right now too. The quotes are amazing (who needs summaries with quotes like these?). Man I need to move to Australia so I can get Kirsty's book upon release! Amazing post can't wait for more Eagar Week!

bibliophile brouhaha said...

I love it! You know what I really like? I love learning about the surf culture and this pecking order it seems to have - never realized that aggression was mixed into it. I think in my mind that beach = laid back. Really can't wait to hear about this - sounds unlike anything else out there!

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

More SURFING! I'm excited! I LOVE books with art! In high school I was the artist, not the musician...there are SO many music young adult novels, but not so many ones about painting and other mediums :) Thank you for the look into Night Beach!

Jenny said...

Wow. I love, love, love the sound of this book! I'm super curious as to what happened with Kane and I just love the way Kirsty writes. Thanks so much for sharing!

Angie said...

It sounds AMAZING!!! I'm not sure why but for some reason I thought this was coming out this fall. Now I have to wait longer - durn it. :( Thanks so much for sharing the snips.

Savannah said...

Umm yeah me too! I want to read this now! I love this author!

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

That sounds really great! I might just have to wait and order all three books at the same time and eat the shipping charges. Or maybe Penguin will see the potential for a new market!! Either way, I can't wait for it!

Nina said...

OMG this cover is awesome! It looks so, so good!

Missie said...

Wow, the mystery surrounding Kane, the wounds on his back and his intensity, I'm so completely intrigued.

If this is a look around and unfinished house, then I'd say when the final brick is set, it's gonna be amazing.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh I am SO going to read a book by this author! This one sounds so good as well!

Rummanah Aasi said...

Kane sounds intriguing. I wonder what secret he's hiding. Like Linds, I don't know much about the surf culture either beside the cliches and from movies. I'd love to learn more. Very excited for this book!

Hafsah @ IceyBooks said...

Hmm, I really like the sound of this one. It's mysterious and the cover has me intrigued even more. Thanks for the post, Nic :)

That cover is super amazing and beautiful and this story sounds great!!! I can't wait for this book to make it across the pond so I can buy it! :D

A Canadian Girl said...

I love the sound of this one and can't wait to find out what has happened to Kane. Plus, just look at the cover! *wants right now* I'm looking forward to seeing if Rhino will have some competition.

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

Ummmmmm sold?!?!?! Good Lord, Kirsty, your talent as a writer kills me with glee. Truly, you epitomize the genre :)

Bailey said...

WOW! You have me intrigued. Sounds like a fantastic book!!

Aylee said...

Oh, wow. And I'm sold. Just like that. Sounds awesome :)

Flannery (The Readventurer) said...

This sounds so exciting. I love the writing sample that was included. The beginning description reminds me of Raw Blue a bit, which I am absolutely behind. I'm not completely sold on the potentially paranormal element but I love Eagar's writing so who am I kidding? I'll be reading it:) Thanks for updating us, both of you!

Alexa said...

This sounds so incredible and unique. I can't wait, hope we can get it in the UK

A.J. said...

Cannot wait for this! Loving the cover, btw. :D
