It's Coming...

Only two weeks away!!

I got this from Julie (A Tale of Many Reviews blog), who's in charge of my launch day party and also my book tour (which isn't until this summer, actually... maybe I can have the sequel out by then as well).

I can't wait to be DONE with all the final details for this book so I can start on the second one!

Here's one of the blog tour banners, made by Dani from Refracted Light. So pretty:

Now I'm off to work on guest posts for the big day...

FROST Blurb!!

Hello, everyone! Happy Monday!

Last week I revealed the cover for my upcoming fantasy, Frost. Today I'm unveiling the blurb:

In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person could end up dead--and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing cold and threat of monster attacks or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and failure just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest--a young stranger named Gabe--Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.

She saves his life.

Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.

But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle the farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but every move she makes puts her in more danger. 

Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?

Frost is a YA fantasy with dystopian, sci fi, and suspense elements.

NOW. I have one more bit of information! The official release date is April 3rd. If any of you guys are interested in helping me celebrate the launch week on your blog with a chapter excerpt, author interview, cover/links post, or some other Frost-related thing around April 3rd, shoot me an email at kellisonwrites(AT)gmail(DOT)com! I'd LOVE to have some help getting the word out come April!

**If you're a book blogger interested in reviewing Frost, feel free to contact me about review copies. I'm already contacting some reviewers now--but if you want to make sure you hear from me, shoot me an email!**

I Am A Dork

SPOILER ALERT: This post spoils a 60-year-old movie, ya'll ;-) So be forewarned.

So, this might be news to some of you guys, but... I am kind of a dork.

Case in point--I was hanging out with these people who are all about 25% cooler than me, and they were teasing our mutual friend because he was irritated over an article spoiling the plot point of a movie that is at least ten years old (but he's never gotten around to seeing yet).

I joined in the fun.

See, I like to think I'm like Lorelai Gilmore or something, snapping out these pithy pop culture references a mile a minute. But when I try to do that, usually this happens:

If life ever needed a hashtag, it's now. #fail

I have also accidentally referred to David Bowie as Jim Bowie, as in the Alamo guy.

I know it in my head, but it just comes out wrong.

Do you ever have any dorky moments of #fail?

PS ~ Captain Nemo looked over my shoulder while I was writing this, saw the first picture, and said, "Hon, it's ROSEBUD."

Me: "Yes, I know..." *sigh*
