So happy the day is finally here! Just got a fabulous new review from Night Owl Romance as well. Top Pick!! Thanks Leslee!

This book is my first Young Adult (as most of you know, LOL). It's got a heavy urban fantasy influence, a strong female lead, is slightly post-apocalyptic, a little dystopian, paranormal... It's a bit outside the box, but I like to think of it as a very twisted Clash of the Titans for teens set in a hauntingly re-imagined New Orleans. Hope you'll check it out!

"Darkness Becomes Her is part “Lightning Thief,” part “Twilight,” and part “Maximum Ride.” [It] will leave many readers clamoring for the next installment."--SLJ

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Lots O' News

Hi. Remember me? Name's Kelly. I used to post on this blog. ;-)

Deadlines are stalking me and I have been on the run and hiding for a long time now. Heh. Yeah, it's true. Anyway, an update is in order!

I'm incredibly pleased to announce that THE DARKEST EDGE OF DAWN has been nominated for an ARR Award! Totally amazed and grateful to the folks who voted for the book. The company DEOD finds itself in is humbling! Big, big thanks to my readers and friends Down Under!! (You can click on the pic to see the finalists.)

And in other news:

  • SIX DAYS UNTIL DARKNESS BECOMES HER DEBUTS!! AHHHH!! I thought that deserved some CAPS. School Library Journal said the book is: “part “Lightning Thief,” part “Twilight,” and part “Maximum Ride.” Turns me into a big marshmallow every time I read this.

  • Two days after the release, revisions are due on the sequel. This makes me want to say: Dude. Can't even explain how distracted I am due to the release, and all the promo work I'm doing and to have a book due at the same time. Ugh. A lot of late nights, and bleary-eyed writing is happening at my house.

  • And speaking of promo: BLOG TOUR!! Starts Friday. And nearly every day of the tour I will be giving away a signed hardcover copy of DARKNESS BECOMES HER!
  • I have seen the book trailer for the book -- and OMG. That about sums it up. It should be releasing this week, I think! Stay tuned for that little bit of awesomeness. It'll knock your sock off.

  • And revisions were turned in for THE HOUR OF DUST AND ASHES! Whew. And back cover copy is done, so the blurb will be coming soon.

  • And lastly (er, I think). BOOKSIGNING!! I'll be signing copies of DARKNESS BECOMES HER as well as copies of the Charlie Madigan books at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Cary, NC on Tuesday February 22, form 7-9 P.M.
