I’ve started this one already and while its a tad slow to begin, it looks to be pretty good! It’s a fantasy story, with elves and some romance and fighting. Not a very thick book either at 200+ pages, so we’ll see how it goes!
This is my first Stephen King novel and I’m interested to see how it plays out! Anyone reading this who likes Stephen King? Comment below and tell me what your favorite of his novels is! Although this one is a standalone, it is connected to his Dark Tower series, which I have not read. Maybe this one will get me hooked?
And actually… that’s all I have on my list right now. I’m working through a few horse-related books as I focus more on different training methods, so maybe not quite as much fiction this month.
Rebellion is going to be available for Kindle pre-order soon, so stay in touch. Only one week until launch!
Hopefully you all have found out that my debut novel, Rebellion Under the Stars, will be coming out next week on Amazon! If you haven’t, now you know.
Apparently, becoming a published author is not very easy. (Who knew?!) One of the things that I have been needing to do all year is transform this blog from a wordpress.com place into its own website with a custom domain and all that jazz. *bursts into song*
Going out on a limb….
This change is coming. Very soon. Probably by the end of this week. The thing that is scary for me is that when I move, I’ll end up losing some traffic. So what I want to know is… will you continue to follow me and make the switch? I’ll try to make it as painless as possible.
Please answer the poll below so that I can get an idea of what I need to do to make the change. Thank you all for being so faithful and awesome! :)
Goodreads extended blurb…. Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses. Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.
Review: This is one of the books I picked up randomly at the library, without being sure of what it really was or having heard anything about. I was very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the story. The heroine was very like-able, even if I kept wondering at the beginning whether she was actually a good guy or a bad guy. The pig was my very very favorite though. So much cuteness!!! The romance was adorable too, even if it did get a little cheesy, but I don’t mind that every once in a while. The author passed away before the novel was published and there were a few editing issues that might have been fixed, but nothing very major.
Overall, it was a super enjoyable read and I might have hung onto it to read a second time!
