I have utterly thrilling news! I’m talking run around the house squealing and jumping up and down news. One of my absolute favorite writers on this planet HAS A BOOK PUBLISHED. Not just a book, but one of the most delightful books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve gotten to know the amazing Mirriam Neal through my dear writing group. I was given the complete honor of reading her novel, Paper Crowns, in its earlier stages, and I can honestly say I’ve never read a book with such whimsy and beauty. Not to mention Mirriam’s trademark of utterly loveable and charismatic characters. Seriously. I can’t stress enough how amazing her characters are. Luckily for you, I’m here to share a little about Mirri and her newly released book!
Mirriam Neal is a twenty-two-year-old Northwestern hipster living
in Atlanta. She writes hard-to-describe books in hard-to-describe
genres, and illustrates things whenever she finds the time. She aspires
to live as faithfully and creatively as she can and she hopes you do, too.
Ginger has lived in seclusion, with only her aunt Malgarel and
her blue cat, Halcyon, to keep her company. Her sheltered,
idyllic life is turned upside-down when her home is attacked
by messengers from the world of fae. Accompanied by Halcyon
(who may or may not be more than just a cat), an irascible wysling
named Azrael, and a loyal fire elemental named Salazar, Ginger ventures
into the world of fae to bring a ruthless Queen to justice.
And we’re not done yet! Mirriam herself is hosting a GIVEAWAY for a signed copy. Check out her blog post HERE for all the details. And you can also find all the other stops for the blog book tour HERE. There are interviews, reviews, and all sorts of fun stuff going down every single day this month. So do check it out!
So! Don’t you want to get yourself a copy of Paper Crowns?
(Pst. If you want a whimsical story with a sarcastic shape-shifting
cat, an enchanting world of faerie, and beautiful and unique storytelling
then you definitely, definitely do.) Do you like original fairytales? What’s
one of your favorites? (Paper Crowns is one of mine. *wink, wink*)
