Publication Date: February 14, 2017
Publisher: Clean Reads Publishing
The end of an Empire, the rise of a Queen
Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory’s arrival she will discover she is the long-lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

1. What is on your nightstand?
Thanks for having me!! Currently, A Court of Wings and Ruin, a glass of water and my Ipod and headphones ?
2. What author would you totally fan?
Both Laini Taylor and Sarah J Maas!!!! It would be a dream to meet them!
3. What makes you cringe?
Oh, I cannot stand scraping noises. Like nails on chalkboards, utensils on plates. It totally makes me cringe!
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
A mix of both. With my world building, I try to map out the plot points and different places the characters will go, and what that will look like. I also map out the history and family trees. When it comes to the characters themselves and dialogue, I go with the flow. As a writer, it never fails to amaze me the roads the characters will take you down, it’s quite exhilarating!
5. Is there a word you love to use?
Oh, thank you for asking me this!!! I love the word snarled. The emphasis, how it sounds, everything about this word I love to use in my intense moments with characters! (In the Black Dawn series there are going to be quite a few!)
