A-Z Challenge: Day of F

I can't say F day. It makes me blush. So we're calling today "DAY OF F". Here's my pretty F picture:

As you may know, I have this little book...called Feudlings. It starts with F! How convenient! Feudlings is the result of two years of blood, sweat, and tears, and then another year of querying that was mostly just a lot of tears. I LOVE my story and I LOVE my characters.

AND, the sequel, Feudlings in Flames, will be out in late July or August. Here's the back cover blurb:



Ari thought being in love with her prophesied nemesis sucked. But being responsible for her best friend's kidnapping? It sucks worse.

Ari and Shane thought they’d beaten Fate and ended the three-hundred year war plaguing their people. They thought love had won. But they were so, so wrong.

Instead of graduating high school like the normals, they’re in a battle to save Charity – Shane’s cousin, Ari's best friend, and the seer who might hold the key to ending the war for good. To do that, they’re forced to accept help from a boy they aren’t even sure they can trust. He’s powerful and knows spells even Ari’s never heard of, but he’s also secretive and has a past he’s determined to keep hidden . Add to that the fact that he has his sights set on Ari, and Shane would rather do without his help.

Ari has bigger problems than mysterious boys and their strange powers. The powerful Edren Family is hunting her brother, and she can't very well save him or Charity while they’re constantly being attacked by her own people. To stop the raids, she has to take the fight to them. But if she starts hunting the family that raised her, what kind of monster will she be?

Fate still waits for the death of one by the hand of the other

  2. Did you have luck with the querying or just decide to self-publish? I definitely don't think the querying process if fun for anyone, and I'm sure there are at least a few tears involved for all writers. Congrats on your books.

    Have fun with a-z.

    1. I did. The week I got the contract offer from Astraea Press, I also got a contract offered from two other small presses and an offer from an agent. But Astraea just felt right, and so far I'm loving my decision!
