Featured Blogger: Apollycon/ Giveaway

Hi Everyone! I recently became a Featured Blogger for Apollycon, a book event that I will be attending on February 28th. It's my first big book event and I'm so excited. The main author is Jennifer Armentrout who I have talked about her and her books on the blog before. I cannot sing her praises enough! She is so lovely and funny in person, one of those women you meet and instantly want to hang out and become friends with. Also her books are so well written! I haven't come across a book that I haven't enjoyed. So, part of being a featured blogger is sharing all the news that comes along with the event. You will notice a logo on my page and every Wednesday and Thursday up until the event I will be sharing all the awesome writers who will be at the event. And BONUS…a giveaway, please click here!! I always had the saying "Free is for me" since I was younger and that goes for FREE books too! I hope the spotlights offer you some new authors you haven't heard of or haven't had a chance to pick up one of their books. I love introducing people to new books! Enjoy!

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.


They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IAAN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.


Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.

ApollyCon Featured Author: Amalie Howard



About the Author

AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 22 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. She is the author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, PW and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was an Amazon best seller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. She currently resides in New York with her husband and three children.

The coronation is over.


But the battle has just begun.


Nerissa Marin has won her crown. But can she keep it? Already, her ties to the human realm are driving a wedge between Nerissa and her people. When word arrives that her part-human prince consort, Lo, has been poisoned, she makes the difficult choice to leave Waterfell and return landside. As the royal courts debate her decision, even more disturbing rumors surface: a plot is rising against her, led by someone she least expects.


On land, Nerissa learns another shocking truth: Lo does not remember who she is. As her choice to try to save him threatens her hold on her crown, changing loyalties and uncertainty test her courage in ways she could never have imagined. Nerissa will have one last chance to prove herself as a queen …and save the undersea kingdom she loves.
