EXCERPT: The Dark Lord Clementine

Clementine Morcerous awoke one morning to discover that her father had no nose. This was not exactly unexpected. Several mornings previously, the Dark Lord Elithor Morcerous had greeted her with slightly less nose than usual, and a bit of a weaker chin. The difference was so small that Clementine, who was quite small herself, barely noticed it. She did notice something different about him—he was her father, after all—but she thought perhaps he had gotten a rather unflattering haircut.

BLOG TOUR: The Dark Lord Clementine

Clementine knows very well what is expected of her as the interim Dark Lord: there are dastardly deeds to accomplish, unsuspecting townspeople to frighten, a level of chaos and uncertainty that must be maintained. But Clementine has other priorities, too. Namely, who is this mysterious Whittle Witch, and what is her quarrel with her father? Is Darka Wesk-Starzec a friend or foe, and who—or what—is she hunting? And what happens if her father finds out that she, Clementine, is capable of light magic—or that she sometimes dreams of existing somewhere between the two moral extremes?

The Okay Witch

Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Roller Girl in this hilarious, one-of-a-kind graphic novel about a half-witch who has just discovered the truth about herself, her family, and her town and is doing her best to survive middle school now that she knows everything! Magic is harder than it looks.

An Interview with Rebecca Donnelly

Join us this week for an interview with the author of The Friendship Lie, Rebecca Donnely. We talk about the hard-hitting stuff here: garbage games, Lulu VanRobot, book recs.

February 13 Dear Ms. Tilson, You probably think you know who I am, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t.

After the Fire EXCERPT

The noise of the gunfire is still deafening, and I hear—I actually hear—bullets whizzing past me, their low whines like the speeded-up buzz of insects, but I don’t slow down, and I don’t change course. The Chapel is burning out of control, its roof engulfed by roaring fire and sending up a huge black plume of smoke, and the amplified voice of the Government booms across the compound, repeating its demand over and over again.

Ruin of Stars BLOG TOUR

A hand snuffed out the light. I leaned over the edge of the greenhouse trellis, wooden beams creaking beneath me. The guards, as they had done every night I’d been spying, left soon as Lord del Aer tucked his daughter in, and they followed him through the halls of his estate. His daughter’s room was left unguarded except for the ones patrolling the grounds. He couldn’t comprehend someone killing his child to get at him.

Episode #32: An Interview with Chelsea Sedoti

It’s interview central around here this month! Joining us this week is Chelsea Sedoti, author of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and the recently released As You Wish. We had a wonderful discussion about anxiety and writing and how we all handle the pressure.

As You Wish
What if you could ask for anything- and get it? 

In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true.

Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself.

Chelsea Sedoti

Chelsea Sedoti
I’ve lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for most of my life. It’s a weird place. I’m not a fan of casinos, but I love the Mojave Desert. I also love the woods and hills and dying steel mill towns of eastern Ohio, which is where my family is from. I wish I could split my time between both places.

I have a nerdy-cool husband and a goofy dog and evil cat. I read a lot of books. I think Mad Men is the best show ever made. I rock climb, even though I’m afraid of heights. I would eat red velvet cupcakes from the Cupcakery every day if I could. One of my favorite things in the world is exploring abandoned places.  

I love writing because it lets me have adventures. I love writing because it is an adventure.

That’s what you should know about me: I think everything should feel like an adventure.

With a little effort, it can.

Sky in the Deep EXCERPT

“I saw him. I saw Iri.” He wrapped the torn cloth around my arm, tying it tight. “What are you talking about?” I pushed his hands from me, crying. “Listen to me! Iri was here! I saw him!” His hands finally stilled, confusion lighting in his eyes. “I was fighting a man. He was about toContinue reading “Sky in the Deep EXCERPT”

Episode #31: An Interview with MarcyKate Connolly

This super special (totes late but you’ll love it) episode we were joined by none other than MarcyKate Connolly, author of Shadow Weaver, Monstrous, Ravenous, and more!

Episode #26: YA Movies Are in Decline?

Since the latest (and final) Maze Runner movie, The Death Cure, only grossed $23.5 million in its opening weekend, apparently that means that YA movies are a declining fad. Jess and Maggie have some thoughts on that, thoughts that include almost twenty five YA titles that were options for movies just this year, as well as books they would love to see get some screen adaptations. Preferably TV shows for Jess so she can spend the day watching an accurate 19 hour production.
