EPIC READS - Sara Raasch, Danielle Paige, Heather Brewer and Victoria Aveyard!!!
Book People, Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 7pm
Thursday, April 9 at 7PM BookPeople Presents Sara Raasch with Snow Like Ashes Danielle Paige with The Wicked Will Rise Heather Brewer with The Cemetery Boys Victoria Aveyard with Red Queen All about Snow Like Ashes GAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in this striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self, from debut author Sara Raasch. The first of a trilogy, Kirkus called it a “carefully crafted fantasy grapples with intense issues...a satisfying read.” School Library Journal raved “the plot and writing are superlative...Highly recommended.” SARAH RAASCH has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then—her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. This is her debut book. It does not feature her hand-drawn pictures. She can be found on Twitter at @seesarawrite. All about The Wicked Will Rise In the New York Times bestselling DOROTHY MUST DIE, pink-haired trailer park outcast Amy Gumm got swept up from Kansas and landed in the magical Land of Oz, only to discover that it had transformed into a savage dystopia under Dorothy’s rule. In this second installment, The Wicked Will Rise, Amy has joined up with the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked – a group of dispossessed witches and warlocks – to take the tyrannical Dorothy down. The Order has defeated her evil henchman, the Tin Woodman, but Dorothy is still out there somewhere – alive and well. Only one thing is for certain: The Wicked Will Rise again. But who is really Wicked—and whose side is Amy on? Danielle Paige Before turning to young adult literature, she worked in the television industry where she received a Writers Guild of America award and was nominated for several Daytime Emmys. You can find her on Twitter @daniellempaige. All about The Cemetery Boys A dark and darkly funny coming-of-age story about a boy named Stephen who moves to a nowhere town and falls in with the wrong crowd of kids. Stephen has to decide what he believes, where his allegiances lie, and who will really be his friend in the end. Part Hitchcock, part Hinton, this first-ever stand-alone novel from Heather Brewer uses classic horror elements to tell a darkly funny coming-of-age story about the dangerous power of belief and the cost of blind loyalty. Heather Brewer is the New York Times bestselling author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, which has sold more than 1.5 million copies around the world, as well as the spin-off series, The Slayer Chronicles. She is a vocal anti-bullying advocate, and organized the “Less Than Three” conference for YA authors and teens to come together and speak about bullying issues. Heather lives in Bridgeton, Missouri, with her husband, daughter, and diabolical cats. Her son, Jacob, started college this year. Visit Heather online at www.heatherbrewer.com or on Twitter @heatherbrewer. All about Red Queen The first in a trilogy where readers are dropped into a world defined by the color of your blood – Reds, lowly commoners, and Silvers, the elite royalty who exhibit spectacular abilities. But what happens when Mare, a Red, finds she has abilities of her own? Intrigue, uprising, and lots of betrayal. It’s “an inventive, character-driven twist that breathes new life into tired fantasy trends” (Kirkus Reviews). This is screenwriter Aveyard’s debut, which has already been snapped up by Universal with book rights sold in 19+ countries, and named an Indies Introduce pick. Victoria Aveyard After growing up in small town Massachusetts, Victoria attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She graduated with a BFA in Screenwriting, which is exactly the degree being sought after in a recession. She tries her best to combine her love of history, explosions, and butt-kicking heroines in her writing. Her hobbies include the impossible task of predicting what happens next in A Song of Ice and Fire, road trips, and burning through Netflix. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople.

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
Game of Thrones meets Graceling in this striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self. Sara Raasch’s debut fantasy is a lightning-fast story of loyalty, love, and controlling one’s destiny.
On The Fence by Kasie West
She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door. With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.
Ignited by Corrine Jackson
Ever since Remy O'Malley discovered her dual identity as a Healer and a Protector, she's kept alive by staying one step ahead of both sides in this centuries-old war. Now someone's trying to draw her out of hiding, using her kidnapped father as bait.

Sara Raasch | Snow Like Ashes
The King's English Bookshop, Monday, October 20, 2014 at 7pm
Join local author, Sara Raasch, for a panel discussion about her debut young adult novel, Snow Like Ashes.
The panel will include young adult authors Natalie Whipple, Bree Despain, JR Johansson, and Michelle D. Argyle.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

YA Blizzard Tour Hits San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 6pm
Kiersten White Kathryn Rose Sara Raasch
Winter is coming. . .in the form of the YA Blizzard Tour with three authors of fantastic novels! Debut YA author Sara Raasch stops by with her debut novel, Snow Like Ashes, and a few friends: fellow YA authors Kiersten White and Kathryn Rose. When Sara started selling her homemade books at her friends' lemonade stands, she knew the world of the written word was for her. Snow Like Ashes is a tale of a dark magic, dangerous politics, and perilous adventure. Local author and self-proclaimed awkward hugger Kiersten White, author of the Paranormalcy trilogy, offers Illusions of Fate, a novel of nobility, secrets, and wondrous magic. Kathryn Rose found enough time away from her feuding cat and dog to bring us a Camelot veiled in mechanical arts and alchemy. Camelot Burning, the first in her Metal and Lace series, centers on Vivienne, Guinevere's lady in waiting, who moonlights as Merlin's secret apprentice.
