The YA paranormal novel and self-publishing phenomenon by Book Country member Alys Arden was picked up by Skyscape in a 2-book deal.
Join us in celebrating Alys at an online launch party for the rerelease on Saturday, November 21, 2015 from 1:30-6:00pm, featuring giveaways, author chats, and more!
As you’ve probably heard on Book Country, member Alys Arden has had quite a writing and publishing journey over the last 3 years! Her debut YA paranormal novel, THE CASQUETTE GIRLS, was originally workshopped here on Book Country and elsewhere on the web. She used this exposure to get writing feedback and to find an audience of readers. On Halloween 2013, Alys self-published THE CASQUETTE GIRLS and won acclaim from reviewers and bloggers (including a starred review from Publishers Weekly–see the quote below!) At the end of 2014, she found agency representation by ICM Partners, and early this year announced that she had sold THE CASQUETTE GIRLS to Skyscape (an imprint of Amazon Publishing) in a 2-book deal. After editing, rewriting, and designing a beautiful new cover, the rerelease went on-sale today!
Join in the fun this Saturday, November 21st, from 1:30-6pm at an online launch party for Alys Arden and fellow author Stormy Smith. Ten authors will be making appearances (including myself and fellow Book Country member and Skyscape author Rachel Anne Marks.
If you act quickly, you can still enter a Goodreads giveaway to win a copy of THE CASQUETTE GIRLS. And if you are local to New Orleans or Biloxi, Mississippi, Alys is hosting live events to celebrate this week as well!
