Release Blast for The Night Weaver by Monique Snyman

THE NIGHT WEAVER
by Monique Snyman
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Vesuvian Books
Release date: October 15th



SHADOW GROVE IS A PERFECTLY PLEASANT TOWN …

Shadow Grove isn’t a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don’t grieve, missing posters don’t line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn’t exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.

Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It’s up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.

Praise for The Night Weaver

“Stephen King’s It meets Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight in Snyman’s frightening story of horror and fantasy woven together to create a delectable tale of the macabre … romance and action. Snyman’s storytelling will have people lining up for the next book.” ~ School Library Journal

Teaser

      Whispers
ride on the wind. Distant childlike voices, gleeful, as if they’re on a
playground, swirl around the crone. The soft voices become louder until it
sounds like the children are playing right beneath Rachel’s bedroom window. The
Black Annis’ cloak suddenly shoots open and spreads out farther. Impossibly, it
somehow fills Rachel’s entire line of vision, revealing a collection of
ghostlike faces stacked one upon the other and side by side. Chubby-cheeked
cherubs avert their hollow gazes to stare at the Black Annis, forced smiles
twisting their features horrendously. The cloak continues unfurling to the
sides and the tally keeps climbing as new faces appear. Even if Rachel wanted
to study each collected child, in search of the missing children of Shadow
Grove, there are simply too many to count.

About the Author
Monique Snyman
Monique Snyman’s mind is a confusing bedlam of glitter and death, where candy-coated gore is found in abundance and homicidal unicorns thrive. Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words—be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words.

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award® nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the first installment in a dark fantasy series for young adults.

Spotlight – Crier’s War by Nina Varela

Unfortunately, I didn’t post my spotlight yesterday for my blog tour spot due to an emergency with a family member. Today I am promoting Crier’s War by Nina Varela. I have heard great things about this book and I hoping that once my life settles down I will be able to read it. The blog tour was hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club.

Crier’s War (Crier’s War #1)

by Nina Varela 
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: October 1st 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, LGBT

Synopsis:

After the War of Kinds ravaged the kingdom of Rabu, the Automae, designed to be the playthings of royals, usurped their owners’ estates and bent the human race to their will.

Now Ayla, a human servant rising in the ranks at the House of the Sovereign, dreams of avenging her family’s death…by killing the sovereign’s daughter, Lady Crier.

Crier was Made to be beautiful, flawless, and to carry on her father’s legacy. But that was before her betrothal to the enigmatic Scyre Kinok, before she discovered her father isn’t the benevolent king she once admired, and most importantly, before she met Ayla.

Now, with growing human unrest across the land, pressures from a foreign queen, and an evil new leader on the rise, Crier and Ayla find there may be only one path to love: war.

Find it here: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N, iTunes, Bookdepository, Kobo, GoogleBooks

About the Author:

Nina Varela is a nationally awarded writer of screenplays and short fiction. She was born in New Orleans and raised on a hippie commune in Durham, North Carolina, where she spent most of her childhood playing in the Eno River, building faerie houses from moss and bark, and running barefoot through the woods. These days, Nina lives in Los Angeles with her writing partner and their tiny, ill-behaved dog. She tends to write stories about hard-won love and young people toppling the monarchy/patriarchy/whatever-archy. On a related note, she’s queer. On a less related note, she has strong feelings about hushpuppies and loves a good jambalaya. CRIER’S WAR is her first novel. 

You can find Nina at any given coffee shop in the greater Los Angeles area, or at www.ninavarela.com.
