Ladies and Gentleman, I Introduce to You....

Every so often I get to do something fun because I have a blog and people visit my blog and and then you visit it and everyone's happy that everyone else is visiting.... but I digress. Today, I get to tell you about a blogger, author and Mama who's had a whirlwind year of firsts.

I rant into her blog after a very informative and refreshingly honest post she wrote last year about her journey as an agented author, who then wasn't able to sell and book and so, self published. Then she took the self-pubbed book off the shelves... then an a publishing company hired her. Then another company wanted to publish her book. Oh, and during all that she's got another agent and is going to have another baby.

But don't let me spoil it for you because it's way funnier the way she tells it. Check her out at

Ladies and Gentleman, it's my pleasure to introduce you to Anne Riley, and her release coming in December from Compass Press:

Shadows of the Hidden

Natalie Watson doesn't believe her parents are dead, even though they disappeared five years ago. Discovering the truth about their fate is one of the only things that gets her out of bed in the morning. But after moving from her home in Georgia to her aunt's boarding school in Maine, solving the mystery of her parents' whereabouts is just one of several challenges she must face. When she's not fending off attacks from the popular kids, she puzzles over the rumors about a strange boy in her math class--one with fiery red hair who rarely speaks.

Despite suspicions that he murdered his sister a year earlier, Natalie finds it impossible to stay away from Liam Abernathy--especially when he confesses to knowing something about her parents. Soon she's following him into the forest, where things happen she doesn't understand...things that shouldn't be possible.

Natalie soon realizes her connection to Liam is deeper than she ever imagined, and not everyone she counts as a friend can be trusted. When she finds herself at the center of a centuries-old quest for immortality, she must work with Liam to stay alive--even if it means facing a truth about herself and her family that will not only shake her perception of herself, but of the entire world around her.
