Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publication Date: September 5, 2017
A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.
Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.
What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

Oh man, my desk. As you can see, it’s messy! I did not spruce it up for this photo. The only things I took down were the sticky notes of my passwords to things, not that busting into my Twitter account would reveal anything remotely satisfying. It’s weird looking at my workspace like this, in a photo, instead of sitting in the middle of it. There are actually fewer empty water glasses sitting around than usual.
I write on that small laptop, perched on the pull out section of the desk. There is an ancient iMac you can’t see on the right, which takes up a lot of space. I use it for graphics, as it contains an ancient version of Photoshop which is too old to be transferred to a newer computer. Thus, the iMac stays, despite being barely functional. The rest of the space is cluttered with little random things that get stuck here and there and anyplace that fits. Despite how it looks, I DO know where everything is. Come to think of it, I use like 5% of my workspace for writing. The rest I’ve given over to the mess. I like the mess, though. I cleaned it once and found the result distracting. But then, I’m messy. I’m lots of little random things. It’s taken me a lot of years to become okay with that, but I am. And so, the mess stays.
