I am sure many people who read this section of BetterMost are already fans of Somebody New by Jenna Hilary Sinclair.  This is just to give the people who are not aware of this fan fiction a chance to read it.  This story is not to be missed.  You are lucky that you don't have to go through the agony of waiting for updates any more.  Last chapter is posted today and the story is complete.  :)

The story started on March 28th, 2006.

UPDATE:
“Force of Nature” is the sequel to “Somebody New”.  Jenna started posting the sequel on August 25th, 2006.

Yay! I'm the first one to post!  Woohoo!

There are no words for the splendor that is Somebody new.  No words.  So why am I even bothering???  Good question.

Well, first I read chapter 1 and then i read dhapter about 20, and Ai really don't know where to go from here. Isn't there any way to rad these things consecutively?

Julie,

Or here http://web.mac.com/luigi.adami/iWeb/Somebody_New/Somebody%20New.html, but I don't like the black background on this site, and the newly posted chapters may not be uploaded to the website yet.

Hey folks......guess what me and Jenna have been cooking up....!!

A new LJ community for fans and readers of the BBM A/U novel Somebody New by Jenna  is now open at http://community.livejournal.com/somebodynew_j4e/. 



Everybody is welcome to join in and see what’s going on!  We’re opening the community with a short story challenge based on a few lines from the novel.  We’re hoping that you will also be interested in participating in general Brokeback Mountain discussion and a thread on writing that Jenna hopes to start in a few days, along with other types of challenges we have in mind.  The entire novel is archived on the site, definitely the best place to read it for those who haven’t done so yet.  Please stop by and say hello.


Come and join us :D
