UPRISING Virtual Launch Party!!

(Children of the Gods #2)

The Descendants have waited long enough 
for freedom.

Elyse has done everything she can to protect her friends from The Council's reach. As long as they believe she's dead, she has time to rest and train for war. And war is inevitable.

When Kara arrives with the news that Anna and Chloe have been captured, Elyse is faced with the realization that no one is safe until The Council is stopped and Christoph is destroyed. She doesn't need a prophecy to tell her to lead an army. Christoph has done the one thing that ensures she'll fight to the death. He's threatened the people she loves.

It will take more than the words of an oracle to help them fight against the most powerful Descendant alive. To break The Council's oppression and rise up against a plot so many years in the making, Elyse will need to get dangerously close to her enemy. So close, in fact, she may not survive.

The Buzz: YA Movie Goodies

I didn't really get into The Mortal Instruments series. I only read the first one...
Now I'm kind of glad I didn't continue because it looks like the movies are going to be great, and I'll have no idea what happens in the next one! For some reason I really can't enjoy a movie if I've read the book. It just seems to be lacking in every way.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

ooooh oooh excited about the Divergent movie too! Can't wait :)

Release Date: March 21, 2014

LA Times Festival of Books 2013

What I don't tell you in this interview is that I was just in the stairwell nursing my 3-month-old baby in the 90 degree heat while he was on a nursing strike.

I think I held my cool pretty well...


Gosh it was a fun event though...basically hanging out with my writer/pub friends all day and meeting fans. Loved it!

Thanks for the interview Scripts & Scribes!
