I'm the One in the Spotlight!

Hey, come check me out. I'm featured on Juli Caldwell's blog! She's the wonderful author of Psyched, Arms Wide Open, Beyond Perfection and the new Gates of Atlantis series for middle grade readers. There's a snippet from my new novel. I've actually reworked that scene, so it's even better than what's on the blog:)

Dreams Become Stories

What do your dreams look like?

Okay, I admit to featuring her a lot. Wendy Knight. That's right. Wendy has probably appeared on my blog more than any other writer, but there's a good reason for that. Well, she's a fantastic writer (and I don't even like the genre she writes in very much--young adult--just goes to show you that good writing is good writing:) and she is a really fun, amazing, interesting, hardworking author. She puts in the time to get those books out to the public. As of last count, I think she has seven books in print. *Hangs head in shame* I'm still working on that second novel. But I will get there!!!
The funny thing is--I realized although I had featured Wendy's books and revealed covers and other things that so important to authors, especially when they launch a new book, I had never interviewed Wendy before. And, I'm kind of surprised. No other author has given me similar answers.
Here's a link to Wendy's author page on Amazon…

Warrior Everlasting by Wendy Knight

Call me super ecstatic for the release of this new book, Warrior Everlasting by Wendy Knight. The first book in the series, Warrior Beautiful, is one of my favorite books, ever! I LOVED the unicorns. I know some people are like, wait, unicorns, really? But they are FIERCE, fighting beasts! Not sugary little rainbow creatures. I also really enjoyed the tension between Scout and Trey. There's so much going on there and I loved how the story unfolded to tell us exactly why they have such problems to overcome. And last, but certainly not least, is the love that Scout has for her sister, Lil Bit. It's just all around a really wonderful book that ends on a cliffhanger, so I'm really excited to see how Warrior Everlasting will answer all the questions Warrior Beautiful left open.
I left a review of Warrior Beautiful on Goodreads, in case you'd like to check that out. Shantal on Goodreads
Here is the beautiful cover, which I love.
