Book Tour: Athena's Ashes! Giveaway+Author Interview!

Publisher: Clever Crow Press
Release Date: August 26th 2014


It’s Renna’s biggest job yet – convincing MYTH leadership that she’s put away her lock picks and is ready to save the galaxy, despite the dangerous implant in her brain. But with the Athena on the run, she’s working solo and facing her most ruthless enemy, the traitor Pallas, who’ll go to any lengths to destroy the MYTH organization. Including framing Renna for a devastating assault on MYTH HQ that leaves their defenses crippled and hundreds dead. 

Now that MYTH believes she’s a dangerous double-agent, Renna escapes their firing squad before they put more holes in her than a pair of fishnet stockings. But the ticking time-bomb in her head is the one thing Pallas needs to complete his master plan and he’s not about to let her get away. Even worse, he’s discovered the only thing that will bring Renna to her knees – threatening Captain Nick Finn.

Out of time and options, Renna’s got one shot to take down the traitor before he annihilates everything she loves, even though winning this battle may cost her everything.

1.      What’s your favorite thing about writing?
I think my favorite thing is being able to create whole new worlds and control everything that happens in them. I don’t have that kind of power in real life and sometimes it’s just nice to say This Thing is going to happen Here. Why? Because I want it to!

2.  What are your top 3 must-read books? 
Oh that’s such a tough question! How about top 3 series J The first is the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. There’s romance, a kick-butt heroine, and lots of action. The Grisha Series (Shadow and Bone, etc) by Leigh Bardugo. It’s YA fantasy of the best kind – smart, exciting, and romantic. And the third would be anything by Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice is one of my comfort reads. (OMG I LOVE THE GRISHA SERIES TOO!!!)

3.      What are your favorite ice cream flavors? Sea salt Caramel gelato. (Yum!)

4. Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what music?
I mostly listen to movie soundtracks when I write. I love all the atmospheric, dramatic scores, and because most of them don’t have words, they don’t trip me up when I’m trying to write.

5.      What’s your favorite place to write and/or read? 
My favorite place for both is curled up on my corner of the couch. Where I usually end up writing is my desk at work. Not nearly as comfortable!

6.      What inspired the title of this book?
The Athena is the main space ship from The Star Thief (the first book in the series). If I talk too much about the ashes part, there would be spoilers. Let’s just say the poor ship has a rough time of it in this book.

7.      What’s the best advice you’ve gotten as a writer? 
Write what you love and would like to read. Write what interests you. Most of all, have fun with your stories. Writing is hard, but the moment you stop enjoying it, is the moment you should stop writing.

Thank you so much for stopping by!:)
