Today, my

“baby” AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is finally out in the world! From inception to pub

date, this journey took eight years. And what a journey it was: writing,

rewriting, revising, editing, querying, submitting; Meeting other debuts,

bloggers, booksellers and librarians, and hearing their thoughts on EMBER.

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the radness.

And now, the

book is here! I am so excited to see it in the hands of readers. I hope you

enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. To celebrate release day, I’m

giving away two signed, first-edition hardcovers of the book. Details below!

All my best,

Set in a

terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy

debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his

freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

LAIA is a

Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her

brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the

empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel

Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

ELIAS is the

academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering

deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a

ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.

When Laia

and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more

intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change

the future of the empire itself.

Check out the book trailer!
