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.

2018 Sequels that I'm the Most Excited For

There are so many great books out there, but here are a few sequels that I am biting my fingernails to read (NO SPOILERS):

Book Three in the Frost Blood saga. If you haven't read the first two yet: Frostblood and Fireblood, you should. Ruby is a strong and sassy fire-wielding heroine. Arcus is a master of frost. Their fantasy world is original, interesting, and with plenty of twists. Nightblood comes out August 21, 2018 and I have already pre-ordered it!

Book Three in the A Kingdom on Fire series. Historical fantasy at it's best. It's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE meets a very dark HARRY POTTER. Coming out on October 16, 2018.
BOOK TWO in the Traitor's Trilogy. Sage Fowler doesn't want to be matched by a matchmaker in book one, so instead she becomes the matchmaker's apprentice and gets caught in an conspiracy to overthrow her kingdom. Set in an alternative historical world there's plenty of fighting, plenty of romance, and plenty of surprises. Coming out July 10, 2…

Great night. Great book.

There's no better way to spend a Tuesday night than at a book launch! Emily R. King's fourth book in The Hundredth Queen series, THE WARRIOR QUEEN, came out yesterday. And I got my very own signed copy.

Even though her GIFs didn't work, her Power Point presentation was positively charming. She shared pictures that give a visual idea of the settings in her novels and what the characters might look like in real life. She also shared her love of sharks and weapons. Emily's personality sparkled like her writing and I am so thrilled that I got to meet her!

I was also hanging out with some author friends, Tiana Smith, Erin Stewart, and Sofiya Pasternack. All four of us have books coming out in 2019. I will be posting more about them as their own book launches come closer.

Great night. Great book.

Swoon Reads Author

I am so delighted to announce that Swoon Reads has picked up my manuscript, Unfinished: A Victorian Romance.  I just received my first edit letter and I eager to make it the best it can be.  The publication date has been set for July 9, 2019. 

This has been such a dream come true for me.  I've wanted to be an author since I read Anne of Green Gables when I was ten-years-old.  The path to publishing has sure been a long one, but I have learned so much on the way.  Mostly, that I love writing and that you can't give up on your dreams. 

So, when Swoon Reads emailed me the week of Thanksgiving in 2017, I started screaming.  My husband thought I'd hurt myself.  I could barely calm down enough to tell him.  I scheduled a phone call with Swoon Reads editors and they offered for my manuscript.  They swore me to secrecy until they announced it on their website (Feb 12, 2018).  It's been one of the hardest secrets I've ever had to keep.  But now I announce it to the world…
