I'm finally going into self-publishing!
I've spent probably too many years trying to go the traditional publishing route via querying agents and publishers with no requests for representation. It's time to take my book career into my own hands and trust myself to put it out there the way I want it out there anyway.
My current book up for publication is Fractured Princess, a Young Adult Fantasy where Kristin Cashore's Graceling meets Final Fantasy featuring non-stereotypical black and brown characters. The blurb is below.
Jonnie is the last princess of the Crystal Bearers, once a powerful people. When she was a baby, the metal army destroyed what was left of them, and now it is hunting her. Her watchmen keep her just out of the metal army’s reach, but she has spent her seventeen years running and hiding. Instead of standing by while her watchmen keep risking their lives for her, she decides to learn how to fight alongside them.
On the journey to hone her skills, long hidden secrets about her people reveal a connection between the Crystal Bearers and the metal army that only fuels Jonnie's will to defeat it. But the more she learns about her own powers, the more she realizes she may be responsible for the metal army – and the destruction of her people.
