Winter Queen off to edits!

Monday, October 8, 2012
My next manuscript is off to my editor. This book is kinda my baby. I'm exceedingly proud of it. It's the strongest book I've ever written. At the same time, I'm a little anxious to see how it's received. I have ten year-olds reading my Witch Song series. They love it and their moms love to have them read it. 

Winter Queen isn't something I'd let my 10 year-old read. Where Witch Song went from young adult down to middle grade, Winter Queen goes up from young adult. I'd say 14 and up. 

The themes are more mature, as are some of the situations. It's also a lot more violent (think axes and battles to the death). 

BUT, I've been waiting to share this book with the world. And in just a few months, you'll be able to read it. That's exciting. I feel like it's a milestone in my career. 

The back cover: 
Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family.

Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by the one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn’t just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation. 

With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power—forever.

If you'd like to sign up for the blog tour, the link is up in the tabs bar above. 

*Hugs to you all*
