OMG, SOOOOOO…I’ve been waiting for today for a long time now for The Winter People’s release, but it’s finally here. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. This book started from a small seed–or rather a short story I wrote my senior year of high school for my creative writing class. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has read it and reviewed it and to all those who will read it in the future.
Make sure to stop in at some of the blogs this week as I’ll be giving away some Emergency Winter Kits, which will include–some super cute mittens, a coffee mug, hot cocoa, gift card, chapstick, flashlight, a cute crystal rose…stuff to survive winter (which is coming).
Summary from Goodreads:
An engrossing, complex, romantic fantasy perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore or Maggie Stiefvater, set in a wholly unique world.
Salome Montgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. Haunted by the voices and images of the strange beings that pulled her to safety, she hasn’t forgotten their warning to “stay away.” For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. But when failing health takes her grandparents to Arizona, she is left in charge of maintaining their estate. This includes the “special gifts” that must be left at the back of the property.
Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin, who she finds trespassing on her family’s property. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, his interactions with Salome take her life in a new direction. A direction where she’ll have to decide between her longtime crush Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. Or Nevin who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop. An evil that, given the chance, will kill her.
