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):

The Invention of Sophie Carter

THE INVENTION OF SOPHIE CARTER  
iscoming out July 14, 2020 from Swoon Reads / Macmillan
1851. Bounced from one begrudging relative to another their whole lives, orphaned identical twins Sophie and Mariah Carter have always relied on each other for love and support, even though the sisters couldn't be more different.
Brash Sophie wants to be an inventor, and demure Mariah wants to be an artist. Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them.
So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie".
At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both of whom think they’re fal…
