About the Novel
His Own Way Out
The Rise Up Series: Book One
Written by Taylor Saracen and published by 13RedMedia
Blake Mitchell knows a bit about enough things and a lot about a few. While the teenager is unsure of which direction to take in life, he’s aware the road he’s on is a direct route to desolation. Being outed as bisexual in the bluegrass state is alienating, and the events to follow are worse. Still, Blake is driven—by any means necessary—to make something more of himself. Identifying an opening, Blake paves a path and finds His Own Way Out.
“Unsure of what to say, Blake remained silent. Life was flying by him, streaks of neon light stretching down endless corridors while he stood in the center of an empty hallway, motionless.”
Rise Up is a series of new adult novels that illuminates pivotal moments in the lives of LGBTQ youth. Each novel features a fresh protagonist and his experience navigating the ups and downs of adulthood. While the characters change and the stories vary, common themes—including the struggle for independence, identifying one’s passions, searching for acceptance and for love—are interwoven through the pages of the novels. Open your eyes to worlds of possibilities, both conventional and off-beat, as these men take you on their journeys to self-discovery.
