"I wrote my first novel in high school. It was about a nerdy teenage boy who got sucked into a fantasy world and had to gather four magical swords to defeat an evil sorcerer. There were elves involved.It was awful.Then I wrote my next book, an epic fantasy with flying ships and floating kingdoms. It was pretty awful, too. As I wrote novel after novel, the quality of my writing gradually progressed from “awful” to just “bad,” then to “meh,” and eventually to “halfway decent.” By the time I wrote Hero Status, I’d put in several years and hundreds of thousands of words of practice to finally reach “good.”I love stories, whether I’m writing, reading, or watching them. Batman: The Animated Series is probably to blame for my superhero obsession, and I thought books were uncool in elementary school before I read Harry Potter, and then BOOKS WERE EVERYTHING. Some other stories I love are Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sailor Moon, and you know what? I’ll stop now before this entire page becomes a list of my fandoms.I was born and raised in Florida, lived in Japan for several years, and somehow ended up in the Midwest for a while before moving back to Florida. Wherever I live, I bring imaginary people with me and write stories about them. I hope you enjoy visiting the worlds I create."

Cover Reveal: Sting of Thorns by Kristen Brand (Dark and Otherworldly #2)
Today, I get to host the cover reveal for book two in Kristen Brand's Dark and Otherworldly series, Sting of Thornes, releasing September 15th 2020!
PS - I may have already read an ARC and I may think it's awesome... 😉
The fight is over, and Leigh Morgan won. After spending months spying in Otherworld as a servant, she’s rescued the humans who were abducted by the Others and sent them safely home. She had to stay behind to destroy the gateway between worlds and keep them safe, but tough luck. She’s prepared to pay the price.
But she didn’t expect the curse the queen of Otherworld lays on her: a thorny vine growing under Leigh’s skin that will kill her when it reaches her heart. The queen will lift the curse…if Leigh uses her connections in the human realm to locate a magical weapon lost hundreds of years ago.
To ensure she succeeds, the queen sends her son, Dredarion Rath, the cunning prince Leigh had to betray to save her people. With anger and hurt still fresh, they can barely stand to be in the same room together, much less cooperate on such a dangerous mission. But as Leigh’s friends risk everything to help her, she’ll have to find a way to reconcile with Dredarion before their quest gets her and everyone she cares about killed.
Ps: You can grab book one - Poison and Honey - now!
In her own words...
