Today I’m very happy to participate in the Cover Reveal for Lindsey Duga’s upcoming YA Fantasy,
GLOW OF THE FIREFLIES
Isn’t it beautiful?! And, having read drafts, I guarantee this is another wonderful, magical, book from Lindsey, author of KISS OF THE ROYAL.
About the book:
Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.
Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.
But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.
And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.
Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.

This cover reveal is brought to you by Entangled Teen.
About Kiss of the Royal:
In the war against the Forces of Darkness, the Royals are losing. Princess Ivy is determined to end this centuries-long conflict once and for all, so her new battle partner must succeed where the others failed. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword, enhanced by Ivy’s magic Kiss, should make them an unstoppable pair—but try convincing Zach of that.
Prince Zach has spent his life preparing for battle, but he would rather be branded a heretic than use his lips as nothing more than a way to transfer magic. A kiss is a symbol of love, and love is the most powerful weapon they have—but try convincing Ivy of that.
With the fate of their world on the line, the battlefield has become a testing ground, and only one of them can be right. Falling for each other wasn’t part of the plan—but try convincing their hearts of that.

I am thrilled to announce that I have signed a three book contract with Crooked Lane Books for my Blue Ridge Library Mystery Series.
Book One — A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS — will be published in December 2017, with the next two books releasing later in 2018 and in early 2019.
My editor is Faith Black Ross, who acquired the books for Crooked Lane. My agent, Frances Black of Literary Counsel, brokered the deal.
I’ve discovered a great love for writing mysteries (it makes sense, as I have always loved to read them) so I am very excited to embark on this new writing adventure.
Hello, welcome to my blog! I will be primarily posting book-related news and posts, but also plan to talk about my experience growing up in a rural area very similar to the fictional town from my debut cozy mystery, CATALOG OF DEATH.
The town of Taylorsford in CATALOG OF DEATH is nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in northern Virginia. How small is it? Well, although its history stretches back to before the American Revolution, the town has yet to acquire a flashing red warning light, much less a stoplight.
But it does have a library, and a historic Carnegie library at that. In CATALOG you’ll meet the library’s new director, Amy Webber. Amy is almost a Taylorsford native, as it’s her mother’s hometown, but she’s still labeled an “outsider” because she was born and raised elsewhere. Amy lives with her aunt, Lydia Talbot, a descendent of one of Taylorsford’s most prominent families. Sadly, historical wealth can’t maintain Lydia’s beautiful Queen Anne Revival home, so she and Amy must keep up the house with limited funds and a lot of elbow grease.
Of course, neighbors are essential to any small town story, and Amy and Lydia’s new neighbor—dancer turned choreographer and teacher, Richard Muir—proves to be just the change that “sworn-off-of-love” Amy needs, although she doesn’t quite realize it at first.
Despite its charms, Taylorsford is not immune to tragedy. An inexplicable murder sets off chain of events that embroils Amy, Lydia, and their friends in an investigation that also unearths long-buried facts about two historical events—a scandalous nineteen-twenties murder trial, and tragic deaths at a nineteen-fifties orphanage.
As a librarian and long-time resident of small towns, I invite you to enter the world of Taylorsford—a world I know quite well, and love dearly. Whether you enjoy the coziness of a small town setting, the thrill of suspense, the humor of everyday life, the charm of history, or the warmth of romance, I hope you’ll find a reason to stop by and visit for a while. Taylorsford and I welcome you!
