To celebrate the launch of GARDEN OF THORNS next month, I will be appearing at The Vero Beach Book Center on March 22nd at 6 PM and I would love for you to make it!
If you are local (or local-adjacent), please consider marking this date on your calendar and stopping by because it is going to be a party and I would love to celebrate with you.
When?– March 22nd at 6 PM
Where?– The Vero Beach Book Center, 392 21st ST, Vero Beach, FL, 32960
So what is a book launch?– It’s really just one big celebration. There will be some light snacks, water, a giveaway, and some free book swag for you to pick it. I will talk a bit about my book, do a Q&A and then GARDEN OF THORNS will be available for you to purchase and for me to sign. It’s a great way for you to support a local bookshop* and share in the excitement of a book entering the world!
What do I need to bring?– Just yourself and maybe a question for me, if you want.
Is there a dress code?– Not really. Come as you are!
Can I bring a friend/cousin/someone else?– YES! It is an open event and the more people that attend, the better. Bring whoever you’d like and spread word about the event.
I really hope to see you there!
*If you haven’t purchased a print copy of my book, please wait until the event! That way you can support this amazing local bookshop and I can sign it for you.
Here’s a bit about my novel:
After seven grueling years of captivity in the Garden—a burlesque troupe of slave girls—sixteen-year-old Rose finds an opportunity to escape during a performance for the emperor. But the hostage she randomly chose from the crowd to aid her isn’t one of the emperor’s men—not anymore. He’s the former heir to the throne, who is now leading a rebellion against it.
Rayce is a wanted man and dangerously charismatic, the worst person for Rose to get involved with, no matter what his smile promises. But he assumes Rose’s attempt to take him hostage is part of a plot to crush the rebellion, so he takes her as his hostage. Now Rose must prove where her loyalties lie, and she offers Rayce a deal—if he helps her rescue the other girls, she’ll tell him all the Garden’s secrets.
Except the one secret she’s kept for seven years that she’ll take to her grave if she must.
GARDEN OF THORNS will be released from Entangled Teen on March 6, 2017.
