Old Favorites

Sometimes you want to read something new and other times you want to get in the bubble bath with an old favorite.  Here are a few of my old favorites that I've read several times:

Why I love it?  
Harry is a kick butt heroine that can ride a horse.  The world-building is amazing.  The kelar (magic) is original and compelling.  And the romance is subtle. 

Why I love it?
This book was originally published as two books, but combined in this edition.  Mel is hotheaded and impulsive.  She's strong-willed and often makes mistakes, but is essentially goodhearted.  Even though she is small and not a good fighter, she manages to play a key role in a revolution and a rebellion.  

Why I love it?
Even though the main character is naive and makes some mistakes, she is strong and feisty.  And she also happens to be a seer.  How cool is that?  The hero in this is one of my favorites penned in fiction.  

Why I love it?
Coriel is not your typical heroine.  She is the baseborn daughter of a Halsing and she lives with her grandmother who is a wise woman.  Corie's greatest ambition is to be a witch, but every summer she goes to Castle Auburn to spend time with her half sister who is engaged to the prince.  Corie learns so much about herself and others and ultimately risks all to do what is right.  I LOVE the hero, but because it's a twist, I won't name him.  But he is wonderful.  

What are some of your old favorites?  Feel free to share them in the comments.

The Last Word Book Launch Party

What a lovely group of people! I am so grateful for the friends, family, and even a few fans (I didn't know I had those) who came to support me at The King's English Bookshop in SLC. They were gracious enough to wear the fascinators and pearl earrings that I made. Fancy Nancy would have approved.   I was in conversation with Mackenzi Lee and we had a great time talking about Victorian underwear and my book, The Last Word. The best part of my writer's journey has been the friends that I've made.  The Novel 19s group  (Authors debuting this year: Addie Thorley, me, Erin Stewart, Tiana Smith, Crystal Pasternack, RuthAnne Snow, and Crystal Smith) There's so many amazing authors in Utah and they are the kindest people you'll ever meet. And sometimes silly, Summer and I are lifting a leg. I'm not sure why.
(More amazing local authors: Emily R. King, Tricia Levenseller, me, Kathryn Purdie, and Summer Spence) 
It was a wonderful night and I am so very grateful.

The Last Word Tea Party / Book Launch

"So what do you do at a book launch?" my mom asked me.

In case you've never been to a book launch either, I'll tell you. A book launch is really a party for the book. Who doesn't love a party, right? All parties are a little different, but some things you can expect at a book launch:  The author to talk about and/or read from their bookQ & A with the audienceBook signings at the end And more...Stick out your pinkies, friends, we're going full out Tea Party style at my book launch for, The Last Word.  First things, first. What's a tea party without a fascinator? I made a ton of these cute little hair accessories so you can feel just like Kate Middleton (Prince William not included).
Come early and pick your favorite to put in your hair! I also made pearl earrings for all of you too. I only wish that I could feed you delicious tea party treats, but the bookstore didn't think that was a very good idea by all of their new books. Go figure! I am going to…
