MIRROR MASTERS Book Release Day!
My debut YA sci-fi/fantasy, THE MIRRORMASTERS, is now available in ebook through Clean Reads, Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Kobo!
After years of writing, editing, and all the ups and downs of querying--including all those twitter pitch parties--this moment has finally arrived. I want to take this opportunity to thank so many of you who have helped to make this book a reality. My family, who has been so supportive and encouraged me to pursue this dream. The good folks at AgentQueryConnect, WriteOnCon, QueryTracker, and Novelty Fiction. All the lovely writers I've met during this long journey who have been so lovely and supportive. The wonderful ladies behind #Pit2pub, and most of all, Stephanie Taylor of Clean Reads for taking a chance on me and my book. Words cannot begin to express my gratitude.
I hope all who pick up a copy of my book have as much fun reading it as I did writing it! :)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Leah Ellis never knew why she was found abandoned on the beach at two years old. Content with her adoptive family and small town life, she hadn't thought much about it over the years. That is, until her life takes a bizarre turn when she begins seeing images in mirrors she can’t explain--cloaked figures using powers that manifest like lightning bolts, or flash-frozen beaches on another world beneath a purple sky.
She practices mirror-gazing, driven to understand these images and their possible connection to her forgotten past, and discovers that it’s kind of addictive with its wild, boundless power coursing through her veins. Soon, she learns to control what the mirror shows her.
When new neighbors move in, Leah is shocked that they're dead ringers for the people in her visions. According to Brian, with the gorgeous ice-blue eyes, and his father, she is a MirrorMaster--an alien with a gift that lets her travel through mirrors, even to worlds light years away. Her birth parents sent them to take her from Earth back to her homeworld of Jantyr, a planet she doesn’t remember. They’ve searched for her ever since she disappeared.
But Leah’s long-lost birth sister, a sorceress, activated an ancient device to trigger a cataclysm on Jantyr as a bid to consolidate her own power. Leah must return to Jantyr, master her newfound ability in order to locate and wield crystals that will disable the device, and thwart her sister’s plans. Otherwise, the destruction will consume the entire galaxy, including Earth and everyone she loves.
And now, onto the book launch events:
