EPIC Reads Meet Up


Last night, I was privileged to meet these four amazing authors: Kheryn Callender,  Mackenzi Lee,  Laura E. Weymouth, and Anna Godbersen. They talked about their new books and about the YA genre. The event was hosted by The King's English Bookshop, but we actually met in an art gallery a couple of doors down from the bookstore. We sat in small circles and got to ask questions. After, we went to the bookshop to get our copies signed by the authors. They were all so kind and gracious.
  
I went with a couple of my fellow 2019 debut author friends from Utah (Sofiya Pasternack and RuthAnne Snow). If you want to learn more about new Utah authors and their books check out our website.


The latest books from these EPIC authors (descriptions from King's English website):

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.
