And until May 19 it’s only 99 cents!
Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.
What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison’s mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn’t trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother’s sanity.
Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
It’s that time again! New York is calling my name, as it is many other bloggers, writers, authors, educators and librarians. May 29-June 1 the Javits Center is the place to be.
Last year I navigated one day of BEA by myself. Scary right? Yup! Especially since the morning I was to travel into the city, I awoke covered in hives. The trooper I am, I took Benydryl and made extra strong coffee, never missing a beat. No way was I missing a day to surround myself with books!
Unlike last year, this year I am attending the whole shabang! YAY! I also have my planned so full with activities that I don’t think I will have any time to pee or eat!
Since this year’s BEA is so exciting for me, I thought I’d blog over the next few weeks about my plans. Last year, I accidently met a few bloggers I’d heard of and a few authors I didn’t know were attending. This year I’d definitely love to meet more peeps from this wonderful community we have on the web. Let me know if you’re going by sending out a Tweet or DM me @kissedbyink.
That’s it for now. My next post will be all about who I am just DYING to meet and what books my grabby little hands are aching for!
