|A MUST READ!!!|
I can’t even tell you how excited I am for all to FINALLY read this AWESOME tale full of pick-pockets, orphans, romance, evil faeries, Royalty, friendship, hardship, love and much more, all set in 1871 London, England. Kiki does an amazing job putting the reader inside Buckingham Palace, Charing Cross railway station, St. James Park, The Birdkeeper’s Cottage, The World’s End Pub and Hyde Park, not to mention in the arms of the handsome and mysterious Rieker. And the plot twists--they'll keep you turning the page and guessing until that final page.
Kiki and I first met in an online writing class several years ago and have been friends ever since. I’ve watched (or read) this tale from its first inception. When she emailed me to say she finished her manuscript a month after she started it (cough, sputter, say what!!!), that it flowed out of her like no other, I couldn’t wait to read it (after I recovered, that is). It was, IS, AWESOME. And I'm not just saying that because Kiki and are are buds. This book is a MUST read!!!
If you don't believe me, read what Mundie Moms had to say, “The Faerie Ring is an intriguing, beautifully written, blend of historical fiction, mixed with the perfect dose of romance, mystery, and faerie lore, all set within the time period of Victorian London. I was completely enraptured with the story that I couldn't devour this debut novel fast enough.”- Katie Bartow, Mundie Moms
Or what Ahsley from Books Obsession says, "I stayed up until 2 am devouring THE FAERIE RING - it was fantastic! Deeply imaginative and creative I was instantly absorbed into Tiki's mysterious world." -Ashley Simmons, Books Obsession
There's a tons more reviews, too many to post. To read more, click here.
As I was saying. Since I read Kiki's first draft I’ve watched The Faerie Ring transform and grow (yes, you can all breathe again, Kiki wrote the draft in a month, but the revisions took the usual twelve plus months). Similar to watching a friend’s child grow into an amazing young adult, graduation day is finally near and I couldn’t be more (sniff) excited for The Faerie Ring to spread its wings and fly onto (and off of) the shelves.
In honor of Kiki's September release I’ll be hosting a weekly giveaway (today's: signed bookmarks to several who comment and/or spread the word via Twitter or Facebook). Next week we'll talk book trailers and during THE week Kiki will stop by for an interview and a book giveaway.
