Rejection

Today I am writing an antithesis to the daily prompt: One-Way.

There was once a time that I believed that writing a story was a one-way experience. I would write the story, share it and it would be accepted. Job done. This has changed, I don’t think as a writer I can exist within my own little bubble. What I am so, so looking forward to, is seeing fan-fiction or fan art of the worlds I create. It might never happen, but I want my readers to fall in love with the words and be inspired to make something of their own, or express that passion. Wouldn’t that be amazing? I love reading comments on my blog and interacting with followers, it’s just the best, and I’m no longer in this one-way world.

Yesterday I spoke about how I’ve been reaching out in author and reader communities to seek advice, make connections and work on making Burning Embers a success. One of the people I’ve been catching up and exchanging ideas with is the lovely Alison Ingleby and I’m delighted to announce that her novel is launched today!

Alison has been so forthcoming with help and advice, she’s just been one of those rare lovely people who has been selfless with her experience.

Now for all of the exciting details about Alison’s new book: Expendables.

Book 1 of The Wall Series

Expendables-dual-on-shelf-1000-wide-compressor

Two societies.

A London divided.

A history lost.

Aleesha is an Outsider. If the government find her they’ll kill her. She survives each day by looking out for herself. And trusting no one.

Trey is an Insider. He never knew what the Outside was like until he finds himself hunted by his own people for an unknown crime he didn’t commit.

Drawn together by forces outside of their control, Aleesha and Trey must learn to work together. It’s not just their lives that are at stake. It’s their country’s future.

Set in a disturbingly realistic vision of a future London, this fast-paced dystopian thriller will appeal to fans of The Hunger GamesDivergent and The Maze Runner.

Expendables is currently on Amazon UK and US and it’s a novel I highly recommend. I might even be adding my own review in the next few days…

Alison has kindly provided a free novelette (Outsider) that’s a prequel to the main series and a nice introduction to a few of the characters. This is available here: BookHip.com/BQADSS

Let me know what you think! I think the covers look particularly badass…

Happy Reading, and remember to leave a comment or a review so that other people can find amazing YA fiction.

YA Fiction for you…

As a lover of YA Fantasy, I’m always on the lookout for a new book to read. I’m eagerly awaiting the newest release from Tamora Pierce (February 2018 folks! It’s pre-ordered!) but February is still a long way off!

Now, if like me you’re waiting for the next book to add to your collection have a look at Dorothy Dreyer. All of the tantalizing information about her forthcoming release is below…

Who must she become in order to survive?

Since the outbreak of the phoenix fever in Drothidia, Tori Kagari has already lost one family member to the fatal disease. Now, with the fever threatening to wipe out her entire family, she must go against everything she believes in order to save them—even if that means making a deal with the enemy.

When Tori agrees to join forces with the unscrupulous Khadulians, she must take on a false identity in order to infiltrate the queendom of Avarell and fulfill her part of the bargain, all while under the watchful eye of the unforgiving Queen’s Guard. But time is running out, and every lie, theft, and abduction she is forced to carry out may not be enough to free her family or herself from death.
Dorothy Dreyer is an author of young adult and new adult books:
ENTANGLED SOULS out April 18, 2017
FRAGMENTS OF DARKNESS out Sept 13, 2017
PHOENIX DESCENDING out Nov 28, 2017

I’m sorry, but the cover is just gorgeous! I love the delicate scrolling and the story is intriguing.

Now, this is going to be added onto my reading list. However, my lovely blog-followers, would you be interested in further YA fantasy recommendations from me? I’m working on a monthly newsletter with the most exciting new YA releases to be included.

Please comment below, if this is something you would like to hear more about!

Happy Reading,

Fibi
