Missing Author

I want to get back into authoring myself! I feel like I've missed so much, I've fallen off the train and I feel like I need to find myself a fast horse to catch up. Like a renegade from the Old West, I need to jump from the speeding horse onto the hurtling train. I miss the published world!

How do you get back on your horse?

Spotlight: Daughter of Winter by Amber Argyle

Daughter of Winter

Daughter of Winter will be released April 21st. Here's the new synopsis:

Bargains. Only the truly desperate make them. Only the truly desperate need them. And always, the desperate pay.

The silence and never-ending dark of winter are all Elice has ever known, for she is the daughter of the Winter Queen. Isolated in a northern queendom with only the seals for company, she dreams of color and music and life. So when a whaling ship crashes just offshore, she doesn't hesitate to rescue the lone survivor, Adar, who quickly becomes her friend. She must keep him hidden from her mother at all costs, for if the Winter Queen discovers him trespassing, she'll kill him.

But when her mother reveals just how dark her soul has become, Elice realizes she is as much a prisoner as Adar. To ever know true freedom—ever to become the woman she was meant to be—she must flee with him. But in their flight, she begins to see hints of something more nefarious. The darkness that has taken hold of her mother is spreading, staining the world with its influence.

Unbeknownst to Elice, a bargain was made long ago. A bargain she was born to fulfill.

Janette Rallison's The Girl Who Heard Demons #BookTour

Welcome to my home, the humble blog of Elizabeth Mueller! I am a homeschooling mother of five children ranging from the ages of 19 all the way to 3. When I saw that Janette Rallison was holding a book tour, my heart stopped. Though my time is riddled with the pidder padding of little feet and incessant voices fringed with high demands, I knew I could make time for Rallison; she is one of my most favorite authors! I knew I just had to get my hands on this book and share my eager thoughts.

*The Girl Who Heard Demons.

Imagine if you could hear demons. What would they say? What secrets would they hold? They slither and hiss and writhe about their victims, like a noxious cloud of leaking riddles. Never had they shared an omen, especially of their prey’s impending doom.

Adelle Hansen is an ordinary girl who bears an extraordinary gift. She can hear demons. Though this bane has been a part of most of her life, she suddenly pays particular attention when she overhears one celebrating the imminent demise of popular quarterback, Levi Anderson.

As I opened the book, I knew it would be a good one. I did wonder how Janette would execute a girl hearing demons, though. I imagined something along your paranormal romance, you know: demons and witches and vampires, oh my!

Was I wrong on that count.

She weaves a fascinating and intricate plot of intrigue, lies, and betrayal that Adelle must unravel—a race against unbelievers to save Levi’s life when it seems everything works against her.

I am impressed with how Janette spins the story. The pacing is steady; nary a dull moment as there is a surprise at every corner. The characterization is candid and impressive, the romance, swoon-worthy at best.

As cheesy as this sounds, I have a special bookshelf in my heart for Janette Rallison novels.
