Heir of Lies (Black Dawn #1) by Mallory McCartney

Publication Date: April 21, 2020

“Hope was a dangerous thing. It could consume every dream and make them take flight, becoming wild daydreams in one’s heart and mind. Or hope could incinerate everything you thought you knew, burning you down to your core, leaving you raw and exposed for the world.”

Emory Fae has only known one thing—life at The Academy, a school for those who have special abilities. Following in her parents’ footsteps, the pressure to uphold their dream falls on her and one of her best friends—Adair Stratton. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to break away from the expectations dictating his future. With whispers of dark magic spreading across Kiero, Adair starts to doubt The Academy is all it seems.

An unexpected visit ignites new tensions as the roguish king from across the Black Sea, Tadeas Maher of the Shattered Isles, and his heir, Marquis Maher, sail to Kiero. Notorious for their pirating and wrath, for the first time in years, they demand the Faes listen to their proposition for a new treaty. Caught in the middle of politics, Adair and Emory, with the help of their best friends Brokk and Memphis, search for the one thing that matters the most—the truth.

Their world is tipped upside down as unlikely alliances are made, and war ravages Kiero. Through the throes of betrayal, lies, hidden magic, and love, Adair is faced with a life changing decision. Will he fight or bow to the darkness within?

But, Adair’s decision will change the course of Kiero forever, setting in motion irreversible destinies for everyone at The Academy as Emory Fae rises as heir.

Heir of Lies is the first book in the bestselling Black Dawn series.

Transcendent (Denazen #4) by Jus Accardo

Publication Date: March 2, 2020

Publisher: Entangled Teen

The boy she’d lost, and finally found again, is not the same boy she remembers. As one of the most powerful Sixes, Kale has changed in ways Dez can’t ignore.

He swore he’d never kill, and now he’s out for blood.

He swore he’d never harm her, and now he struggles to control his fatal touch.

They’ve been to hell and back, over and over, but this time they might not survive the fire.

When the truth at the root of the Denazen Corporation’s origins begins to unfold, those behind the scenes will do anything to keep it hidden.

Dez and Kale will be pushed to their breaking point. As long buried secrets come to light, they must fight for their freedom—and each other—as they never have before.

Kale’s destructive power could win the battle, if he doesn’t lose himself to it in the process. Or Dez will be faced with an impossible task—saving the world from the boy she loves.

With one hand at the small of my back, Kale kicked off the bed, balancing my weight against his knee as he swung us around. No sooner had my back hit the soft down comforter was he hovering above me, bright eyes filling every inch of my vision. “Should I ask what you’re doing?”

His voice was hoarse, and his eyes sparkled with longing. If I could see my own reflection, I was sure it would mirror his. “If you need to ask, then clearly you’re regressing…” I lifted my head and nipped at his bottom lip.

“Would it be wrong of me to ask if this was another trick?” His lip twitched.

“Yeah.” I skimmed his chin with the tip of mt nose. “Still sorry about that…”

He responded by dipping his head and trailing a scorching line of kisses from my ear to the tip of my chin. “I’d like to know what changed,” he said, lips brushing the sensitive skin of my neck. “I’d like to know…” More kisses. “…that you’re really all right.”

“I—” He’d worked his way back around to the other side of my face and had taken the edge of my ear between his lips. Whatever it was I’d been planning to say dissipated, along with the rest of the world. I pushed against him, and he must have thought I wanted him to stop, because he froze for a moment before bolting upright. When I tugged off my shirt, though, his eyes glittered with feral anticipation.

But instead of closing the increasingly painful distance between us, he stayed where he was, looking down at me in that hungry, appreciating way, but also, with concern. “Talk to me.”

I slid off the bed and crossed to where he stood. “Is that what you really want?” I lifted my finger and touched the tip to the jagged scar just below his heart. I traced the outline, our skin barely touching. He squeezed his eyes closed for a moment and breathed in sharply. “Because it seems like you might want something else.”

            He opened his eyes and brought his face inches from mine. “I want you.” He ran his lips across my cheek, brushing them too briefly against my lips. “All of you.”

I Hate You Fuller James by Kelly Anne Blount

Publication Date: March 2, 2020

Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

I hate you, Fuller James.

I hate your floppy hair and your lopsided grin and those laughing blue eyes that always seem to be laughing at me.

I hate that you’re the most popular guy in school and I’m still the girl who sneezed and spit out her retainer on someone at a middle school dance. It’s just such a cliché.

I hate that I’m being forced to tutor you in English and keep it a secret from everyone. Because otherwise it might put our basketball team’s chances at winning State in jeopardy, and even though I hate you, I love basketball.

I hate that it seems like you’re keeping a secret from me…and that the more time we spend together, the less I feel like I’m on solid ground. Because I’m starting to realize there’s so much more to you than meets the eye. Underneath it all, you’re real.

But what I hate most is that I really don’t hate you at all.

If I Knew Then What I Know Now About Writing…

Oh boy. Ha ha! I could write a book on this topic.

I started writing in 2011. I’d always loved reading and I enjoyed writing as a girl. I’d fill notebooks with stories of pirates, adventures in the rainforest, and kids outsmarting dangerous criminals. I had to put the writing on hold while I was going to school to become a teacher and again while earning my Master’s Degree, but after I graduated, I knew it was time to start creating again!

After reading the Trylle Triology by Amanda Hocking, I was inspired. I Googled her and was in awe. She’s an incredible author with an amazing story! Fueled by excitement and the passion to create my own story, I began writing. I didn’t know much about the technical side of writing, like how to format my manuscript or how long a book should be, but I did have a story blossoming in my mind. A few short months later, I typed, THE END! I was elated, but I quickly realized there was loads more work to do. Editing, editing, and more editing! LOL!

As I began to work with a professional editor on my first, second, and third books, I learned a lot about the craft. Everything from the importance of hooking a reader’s attention within the first five pages to creating characters with strong arcs.

I also learned a lot from my readers. As an avid writer on Wattpad, I loved the constant feedback my fans provided. They helped boost my confidence and inspired me to keep writing.

Over the past nine years, I’ve learned a lot about writing, but I think I’ve made the most growth over the past year. This is due to working with my fabulous and mega talented editor at Entangled, Stacy Abrams. I’m in awe of the final product I created with her guidance. Step-by-step, she helped me mold I HATE YOU, FULLER JAMES, into the book it is today (including deleting over 300 exclamation points, LOL). A story that I am beyond proud of and one I’m so excited to share with readers!

Thank you so much for having me today! It’s an honor to be featured on your blog!

Kelly Anne Blount xoxo

The Love Playbook by Suze Winegardner

Publication Date: November 4, 2019

Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

When Avery Stone learns her dad will be fired if his high school team doesn’t make the playoffs, she has to get her head out of her day planner and do something—anything—to help him win. Even if it means secretly coaching the team’s newest player, who seems to have more game than skill.

Lucas Black just transferred to Hillside with a fake name and a big secret. The MVP of every team he’d played on since he was seven—not to mention the MVP of every post-game party—he can’t understand why since arriving at Hillside, he’s been unable to catch a single. Freaking. Ball.

Until…Avery. Amazing, kind, generous, and crazy-freaking-hot Avery.

As Lucas goes from zero back to hero and Avery struggles with just what Lucas means to her, she inadvertently sets them on a collision course with Lucas’s secret…a secret that could take down not only Lucas but her father too.

DISCLAIMER: This Entangled Teen Crush contains a football player hotter than the Texas sun, hotel cuddles, and a steamy makeout session in the rain.

Cover Love (Why you love the cover)
The cover to The Love Playbook was designed by Juliana Cabrera, and I think she did a great job. When you hear “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover”, I want to yell “BUT I WANT YOU TO!”

I think a good cover should pretty much show the reader what they’re getting inside. And this one really does… it’s all football, and closeness, and intensity. The only thing I think the cover doesn’t show is the humor running throughout the book, but how was Juliana going to show that? Plonking a red nose on one of the characters?! Bottom line is that this cover pretty much shows what readers will get inside. So feel free to JUDGE MY BOOK BY JULIANA’S COVER! I love it!

Demon in the Whitelands by Nikki Richard

Publication Date: September 24, 2019

Publisher: Month9Books

Sixteen-year-old Samuel, son of a devout cleric, has endured shame and prejudice his entire life. Though he is destined to follow in his father’s footsteps, he longs for an ordinary life in the whitelands away from talk of demons and holy roots.

When the mayor claims to have captured a mute demon-girl, Samuel is forced to become her caretaker. But as Samuel gets to know the prisoner, he finds her not to be very demonlike. Instead, she is intelligent, meek, and an exceptional artist. Despite her seeming goodness, some more concerning things cannot be ignored. Samuel is hard-pressed to reconcile her uncanny strength and speed, one missing arm, ambiguous gender, and the mysterious scars covering most of her body.

Samuel forms a deep attachment to the girl with predator eyes and violent outbursts, against his father’s advice. As their friendship threatens to become something more, Samuel discovers the mayor’s dark intentions. Now, he must decide whether to risk his own execution by setting her free, or watch as the girl is used as a pawn in a dangerous game of oppression, fear, and murder.

2. Samuel recalling his first animal kill

Samuel was seven the first time he’d killed a deer. Samuel had previously watched his father put down ensnared animal many times, but when it was his turn to cut, he forgot all of his father’s past instructions. His slice was crooked and shallow, and he missed the deer’s artery. His father had to come over to him and do it right. Samuel was humiliated. Even as his bastard, he continually felt like a disappointment to his father. He wouldn’t only make a poor cleric, but a poor man. He was weak, his branch-like arms and legs too dainty to overpower much of anything, and he cried way more than a boy should. He wanted to be strong, to do what was necessary in order to survive. Even so, it was one thing for him to watch his father put a deer down, and another when he was the one holding the knife.

I know it’s hard, his father told him. But this is something that one day you’ll have to do on your own. A man must learn to provide for himself in this world. The scriptures tell us this.

                I’m sorry.

                This animal is a gift. We honor it with our eating, and we honor it by returning its body to the roots.

                But it’s in pain.

I know, his father said as he wiped his blade across the snow, cleaning off the blood. Everything on this earth is subject to pain. Including us. Azhuel has given man dominion over the beasts, which makes us stewards of this world. We should strive to live in harmony with the living, no matter their size or disposition. But humans need meat. This is why you must learn to put a trapped animal down. Sometimes, a quick death is the most merciful thing to give. We thank the creature for the nourishment it will provide us, and we thank the roots. It is Azhuel’s gift to us. We are but dirt. To dirt we return.We are all dirt. The notion brought Samuel no comfort.

Road to Publication

Getting PROM-WRECKED published actually happened faster and easier than either Jen or I anticipated. We each had been previously published; Jen with a couple of traditional publishing houses, me with one plus self-publishing a young adult dystopian series, so we knew that once we began submitting, it would take a while to find a home for our book.

We submitted to both agents and publishers who took unagented submissions. For both of us, working with Entangled had long been the dream. When we got the email from Stacy Abrams, our editor, telling us that they loved our book and wanted to publish it, I think we both independently squealed from our own homes, 2,000 miles and three time zones apart.

The process from signing the contract to final publication was smooth. Stacy’s suggestions and comments took our submission from rough carbon to a highly polished diamond. The support from our publicity team, Rikki and Heather, has been a blessing. We’re excited for the world to read our story and smile, laugh, and fall in love.

Prom-Wrecked by Jennifer DiGIovanni and T.H. Hernandez

Publication Date: May 6, 2019

Publisher: Entangled Teen

Their prom night ended in a jail cell with forty of their closest friends. But that’s hardly the worst thing that happened to them…

When the principal announces prom is canceled this year, senior Riley Hart is determined to save it. Armed with little more than her own enthusiasm, she ends up working closely with Owen Locklear, who is more than completely off-limits. Because he’s the boyfriend of her ex-BFF, Catherine Reed. Still, Owen knows Riley better than almost anyone, and his charming ideas for turning the prom upside-down and backward win Riley over.

Catherine is willing to join Owen and Riley on the prom committee, but only because her legacy as prom queen is at stake. She’s already suffocating under the weight of her parents’ expectations for after senior year, and compared to that, ensuring prom happens should be easy. At least until everything starts to go wrong.

First they lose their deposit. Then they book a band full of octogenarians. And lose their venue… Twice.

Riley will have an unforgettable teenage experience, damn it, if it’s the last thing she does…

Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Cooper’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons.

Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, straight-A student, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at the Torres dance studio helps, he’ll do it.

When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. But in dance, as in life, one wrong move and someone could get hurt.

 Just Pretending by Leah & Kate RooperJust Pretending (The Chicago Falcons #3) by Leah and Kate Rooper
Publication Date:  November 5, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

It’s not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that….

Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he’s more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva–and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she’s his best friend’s little sister. Two, she wears a crown.

But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn’t feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet.

His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.

Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.



We’re including a deleted scene that occurs during one of the most intense moments of the book! This is the original scene when Tyler Evans’ charade of posing as Prince Tiberius is discovered. We loved this scene when we wrote it, and thought it was totally hilarious and fitting for Tyler’s best friend, Prince Daniel, who is super dramatic and hot-headed. Ultimately, we decided to re-write this scene to be less comedic and more serious so it would fit the tone of the book better. We still have a soft spot for this crazy, slapstick reveal 🙂

I push Tiberius’s long mop of hair out of my eyes and blink rapidly. I stare into the gaping faces of the banquet. Somehow in our tussle, we’d burst through the double doors back into the banquet hall. I can only imagine what we look like. I touch my lip, feel blood there. I want to look away but I can’t. All the eyes of the dinner party are on me…and the two princes in a heap beside me. Madison is front and centre, for once as stunned and silent as everyone else. The Queen Dowager looks like she might faint.

“What is going on?” Evangeline cuts through the fray, her voice sailing through the air like the toast of a glass. She looks so worried, and my heart aches. I did this to her.

“Tiberius,” she says and starts forward. “You’re hurt.”

Daniel leaps to his feet and blocks her path. “Don’t, Eva,” he says. “Don’t waste one more breath on that guy.”

“W-What?” Eva says, looking past Daniel at me.

“I caught him in the hallway,” Daniel says, not caring about the dignitaries and officials watching, “making out with some girl.”

Eva takes a small breath, her throat bobbing ever so slightly. Her eyes go blank and glossy. “T-Tiberius…is this true?”

Daniel steps toward her. “Don’t worry, Evans and I handled it. He’ll rue the day he messed with Daniel Sacachelli’s little sister.” He reaches for her, but she steps out of his grasp. She’s still looking behind him, her eyes trained on me.

“You…you made me believe that I was special,” she whispers. “That I was finally heard.” She steps around her brother.

“Eva, don’t,” Daniel says, trying to grab her arm again.

“Daniel!” she says, her voice escalating. He backs away from her.

Her steps are firm and deliberate as she walks toward me, still tangled up with the real Tiberius. I can’t look at her anymore. My body feels like an engine that’s run out of gas. There’s no more running, no more stories. There’s no Madison or Millie to dig me out of this one.

It’s time to face what I’ve done.

“Stand up,” she orders. A queen’s voice.

Tiberius and I both shuffle to our feet, eyes downcast.

“Evans, you can come—” Daniel says, but Eva holds up a single finger. He silences.

Then she strikes me across the face with the palm of her hand.

“Eva!” Daniel roars. “What are you doing?”

Eva’s whole body is shaking. Her teeth are gritted together and tendrils of hair have fallen loose around her face. “Was it all a lie?” she chokes.

“No,” I say. Because it wasn’t.

Daniel rushes over and throws an arm over my shoulder. “What the hell, Eva? Don’t take this out on Evans!”

My whole body shuts down. All I can do is bow my head. My cheek stings.

“Evans?” Eva says, blinking wildly. “You said you caught Tiberius with another…”

“Yeah,” Daniel says, releasing me and grabbing the scruff of Prince Tiberius’s collar. He gives a little peep. “Prince Tiberius? Your true love?”

“N-No…” Eva says, shaking her head and gesturing to me. “This is Prince Tiberius.”

But then the real Tiberius throws his head back and brays with laughter. “There is only ONE Prince Tiberius,” he says, his accent thick on every word. “And that is mou.”

“What the hell is going on here?” Daniel says, eyes flying between Eva and me. “Tyler…”

“Tyler,” Eva says, as if the word were toxic on her tongue. “Ty…”

Suddenly, Madison is beside Eva, gently touching her arm. “Eva, maybe we should let the boys get cleaned up…everyone’s watching.”

Eva doesn’t even acknowledge her. “Who,” she says, her voice cutting like a blade, “is Prince Tiberius?”

The real Prince Tiberius sweeps into a bow. “At your service, Your Highness.”

Eva grabs my chin and forces me to stare at her. “Then who are you?”

My words are more breath than voice. “Tyler Evans,” I say. “I’m…” I’m what? A hockey player? Daniel’s friend? A liar? All true, but they all feel so empty. “I’m nobody.”

“All this time,” she says, “you were lying to me?” Her hand falls from my face.

I stare at her pleadingly. “I only did it because…I wanted to be with you. I did it because…” I shake my head, feel my eyes start to sting. “Because I love you.”

“How can you possibly love me,” she breathes, “when everything about you is a lie?”

“Eva—” I reach for her hand.

“Don’t touch me!” she yells, her voice echoing through the ballroom.

“Someone tell me what the hell is going on,” Daniel says. His body tenses like a bow string. “Or I’m going to start making my own conclusions, and that’s not a good idea for anybody.”

“No,” Madison mumbles quietly, “it’s really not.”

“It’s my fault,” I choke out. “When I picked Eva up from the airport, I had lost Tiberius…so…so I pretended to be him.”

Slowly, Daniel looks between Eva and I. “You…you pretended to be Tiberius. Which means…” His gaze settles on me. “You’re the Tiberius that Eva is in love with.”

There are a hundred pairs of eyes on me, but there’s only one I care about. Eva looks at me as if I’m a stranger. As if we hadn’t laughed together, spilled our secrets to one another, felt the touch of each other’s body. And the look she’s giving me right now is worse than the absent glare from when I tried to talk to her with my hockey gear on.

“Please,” I gasp. “Let me explain.”

Daniel paces back and forth, before stopping at the nearest wall. He slams his fist against it, rattling the decorative swords on their wooden mount. Then he stills, and says in a dark voice, “Oh, Evans. The time for explaining is past.”

In a single instant, Daniel moves, snatching the swords down from the wall and brandishing one as if he were some medieval knight. A gasp goes up from the audience.

“What are you doing?” I cry.

Daniel slides one of the swords across the floor. It lands right at my feet. “Pick it up,” he says. “I want to fight you like a man.”

“Those are antiques!” the Queen Dowager cries.

“Shush!” Madison says. “This is getting good.”

I stare down at the polished sword by my feet. “Daniel, come on. Just listen to me—”

“No, you listen,” Daniel snarls. “Listen to the sound my sword makes as I sheath it in your flesh!” With an animalistic roar, Daniel rushes at me, sword above his head.

Instinct takes over, and I grab the sword at my feet. Just in time, I bring it up to clang with Daniel’s.

There are screams and shouts from the onlookers, but Daniel doesn’t care. He grunts and swings his sword again. I barely have a chance to block it. “D-Dan, stop!”

“You betrayed me!” he roars, going for my flank. I counter, the sing of metal sounding through the banquet hall. “You betrayed my sister!”

All my years of playing video games rush back to me, as I counter Daniel’s flurry of attack. Is Daniel really attacking me with a sword? This cannot be happening! With a roar of my own, I strike back, slashing at Daniel’s left arm. He doesn’t get his sword up in time, and it slices through his black coat.

He looks down at the tear, then back up at me. With newfound rage, Daniel surges forward. Clang, clang, clang, our swords smash against one another. I’m being pushed back, closer to the wall. The sword is heavy and my muscles scream as I block Daniel’s assault again and again. But I’m too slow, and I see Daniel’s sword arc up and then swing down—


A giant black mace swings through the air, blocking Daniel’s sword from shaving off one of my blond curls. I turn and stare at its wielder.


She holds the big mace tightly, her body hunched over, breathing ragged. The suit of arms near us rattles, empty-handed, from where Eva must have grabbed the mace.

“Enough,” she says again. “Get out. All of you.”

No one moves. She arcs the mace up in the air and slams it down onto the floor. “GET OUT!”

Slowly, everyone starts murmuring and shuffling toward the door. Eva drops the mace and turns away, her head in her hands.

“Eva—” I say.

“Don’t.” Her body stiffens. “I believed you. Every word.” She looks back, just the peek of her face over her shoulder. “You could have believed in me too.”

I fall to the ground, head in my arms. I hear Daniel’s sword clang to the ground, then his heavy footsteps as he walks away. The bustle of the crowd dies down as everyone leaves, and then the lights go out, only the candles on the walls still burning.

I sit alone in the dark. The candles flicker on.

WarOfStorms-final-500x750War of Storms (The Ryogan Chronicles #3)

by Erica Cameron
Publication Date:  November 5, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

The immortal mages have risen, and they’re out for blood.

Khya arrived at the Ryogan coast too late to stop the invasion. Now, cities are falling before the unrelenting march of an enemy army, and Khya’s squad is desperately trying to stay ahead of them. Warning the Ryogans, though, means leaving her brother imprisoned even longer. Time is running out for everyone.

How can her squad of ten stand against an army of ten thousand?

Calling in help from every ally she’s made in Ryogo, Khya tries to build a plan that won’t require sacrificing her friends or her brother. It’s a tough balance to find, especially when the leadership role she thought she wanted sits heavy on her shoulders, and her relationship with Tessen is beginning to crack under the strain.

The end is coming, and there’s no way to know who’ll be left standing when it hits.

Road to Publication

Not all roads are straight, and this is especially true of the paths between a novice writer and a published author. My own path definitely wasn’t without circles and curves.

Although I did major in creative writing while I was at Florida State University, that wasn’t what sparked the determination to write a novel and send it out into the world. That came, in a roundabout way, from Twilight. After my sister handed me a copy of the book, I discovered fanfiction online for the first time. And I started writing it. Every writer needs a way to prove to themselves they’re capable of not only getting an idea for a book but taking that all the way through to completion. Fanfiction was that for me.

Reassured of my own capability, I began to search for my own ideas to work on. The first book I wrote earned some interest from agents, but no one picked it up for representation. It took time, years, honestly, and two more books. Only after finishing the draft that would become my debut novel Sing Sweet Nightingale did things change. I won an award for unpublished writers from a chapter of Romance Writers of America, and then I went to Book Expo America (BEA) with a friend of mine, Lani Woodland, whose first book had been published the year before.

That’s where things got interesting.

During BEA, there are often parties in the evening hosted by various publishers, authors, and/or bloggers, and Lani had been invited to one such event. It was on a rooftop in Tribeca. Lani wasn’t familiar with Manhattan or comfortable navigating the subways on her own, so I brought her to the party….and then I sort of never left, deciding to quietly gatecrash instead. I couldn’t help it. Sunset over the river from a building on the water isn’t something to pass up when presented with the chance. I met dozens of wonderful people that night, but it was a conversation Lani pushed me into that had a lasting impact on my publishing career—she introduced me to the two women who would become my first editors. A couple months after that party, I’d sold my debut novel.

But I didn’t have an agent. My first agent came from a conference referral, someone I connected with at a Society for Children’s Book Writer’s and Illustrators event in Florida. It felt like a great match, so I signed with her and continued working on my debut.

I sold three more books, expanding the series my debut began, and kept writing. My agent took two very different projects on submission, searching for another editor who might love my work. Nothing sold. My second novel kept getting pushed back and delayed. The two projects on submission still didn’t sell. Deadly Sweet Lies, book two of The Dream War Saga, finally released. Soon after, my publisher told me the third book might not ever be released. It seemed that the “career” I’d been so excited to get started was already over just two years in.

Then, in 2015, I attended RT Convention in Dallas. I’d been lucky enough to get placed on a panel with some amazing authors of adult titles, and I had connected with a lot of the young adult authors who would be attending as well. We hung out, talked books—both our own and everyone else’s—and generally had a blast. What I didn’t expect (because I really was mostly convinced my days in publishing were coming to a close) was for two of those conversations I had during the convention to result in book deals. It was amazing. Somehow, both my Assassins duology and The Ryogan Chronicles trilogy sold by the end of that summer—Assassins to Riptide and Ryogan Chronicles to Entangled Teen.

My agent and I split a month after the convention ended.

Since 2015, I’ve published seven novels (including War of Storms), signed with a new agent, sold a science fiction trilogy to Entangled Teen, and gone back out on submission for the first time in years. Ups, downs, sideways spins, and unexpected loops—publishing has them all. While some trajectories are both straightforward and steady, it’s not guaranteed. If you get into publishing, no matter if you’re on the creative or the business side of the industry, the only promise is it’ll be one hell of an interesting ride.
