The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White


My fellow 2019 Utah Debut authors were out in force on Monday night to see New York Times Bestselling author Kiersten White talk about her newest book The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein. In case you didn't know, 2018 is the 200 year anniversary of the original publication of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

Before we headed over to The King's English to hear her speak, we went out to dinner at Mazza and were talking all about publishing stuff. Then a lady stood up and turned around--it was Kiersten White. She said hi and we talked. She was out to dinner with her parents.

Kiersten's presentation was delightful and we all got a book signed. Check out my review on Goodreads.

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…
