I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again and again). One of my favorite parts of being a writer has been getting to know other writers. There are amazing communities out there for us, and it's been my experience that most writers truly want to help each other. And most writers? Yeah, they're pretty cool.
Shauna Granger is no exception. We met after a mutual friend introduced us in an internet-y way, and now we blog together, we tweet together, and I'm so glad for it. Shauna was a participant in my recent cover reveal for Undead America: No Angels, and today I'm so excited to return the favor! Her new book, World of Ash, is coming soon, and trust me...it's a way-fun read! And the cover? Well, the cover speaks for itself, doesn't it?
Isn't it pretty?
So...here's what this book is all about:
There are two inherent truths in the world: life as we know it is over, and monsters are real.
The Pestas came in the night, spreading their pox, a deadly plague that decimated the population. Kat, one of the unlucky few who survived, is determined to get to her last living relative and find shelter from the pox that continues to devastate the world. When it mutates and becomes airborne, Kat is desperate to avoid people because staying alone might be her only chance to stay alive.
That is, until she meets Dylan. Dylan, with his easy smile and dark, curly hair, has nowhere to go and no one to live for. He convinces Kat there can be safety in numbers, that they can watch out for each other. So the unlikely couple set off together through the barren wasteland to find a new life – if they can survive the roaming Pestas, bands of wild, gun-toting children, and piles of burning, pox-ridden bodies.
And here's what Shauna's all about:
Like so many other writers, Shauna grew up as an avid reader, but it was in high school that she realized she wanted to be a writer. Five years ago, Shauna started work on her Elemental Series. She released the first installment, Earth, on May 1, 2011 and has since released four sequels, with the series coming to an end with Spirit. She is currently hard at work on a new Urban Fantasy series, staring a spunky witch with a smush-faced cat named Artemis.
Feel free to say hi to Shauna at any of these fine locations:
