Preorder Giveaway + Swag (International)

Everyone who preorders Fear My Mortality will get a deleted scene! The scene is one that I love because it shows the characters in a calmer setting before the action ramps up.

Just email a copy of your preorder receipt to everlyfrostpreorder@gmail.com and I’ll email you a link to the PDF document with the deleted scene.

ALSO, in addition to the deleted scene, I have ONE preorder swag pack to give away! This pack is one of the biggest I have and it includes a tote bag, mousepad, 3 postcards (one signed), 4 stickers, and 2 magnets. Open international.

Hello 2016!

It’s 2016! This is the year my young adult fantasy novel, Fear My Mortality, releases!

There are so many things I’m looking forward to sharing with everyone this year: kicking off with the cover reveal soon, sharing the book trailer I made, some special swag giveaways I have planned and, ultimately, seeing Fear My Mortality out in the world. It’s a story about believing in yourself, being who you are, and having courage in the face of adversity and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Happy new year everyone!

Everly Frost young adult fiction

 

The best 3 YA action books I read this year – and happy holidays!

I’ve read many amazing young adult books this year, but for me there were three that stood out as the best young adult action books of 2015.

Here they are in no particular order (and no spoilers) 🙂

NAMELESS by Jennifer Jenkins

Nameless by Jennifer Jenkins

Wow. Just wow. This book gave me the same tingles in my fingertips that I felt when I read The Hunger Games and Divergent for the first time. That’s not because Nameless is dystopian: it’s fantasy fiction set in a world where there are four clans, dominated by the ruthless Ram clan. The main character, Zo, is a Wolf and a Healer who infiltrates the Ram as a spy for the Allied Clans.

This book has everything I want in a young adult book: action, a developing romance, loyalty, danger, compassion in surprising places, and complex characters I fell in love with.

EARTH by Jaymin Eve

Earth by Jaymin Eve

Oh boy. This one. EARTH is the seventh and final book in the Walker Saga. The series follows Abigail Swish, a half-walker, in her quest to locate and unite the seven half-walker girls from across the universe to defeat the deadly Seventine – original powers who are determined to destroy worlds.

This series has a powerful love story, strong heroines who define their own futures (while never taking themselves too seriously – seriously, the humor in these books is perfect), and incredible action scenes. There aren’t too many books that can make me cry, but EARTH did. I’ve followed this series from start to finish and I’ve fallen in love with each and every book over and over.

TRACKED by Jenny Martin

Tracked

I was hooked on TRACKED from the very first page and couldn’t put it down even when it turned dark outside. Phoebe Van Zant is a street racer in a futuristic universe where corporations are the ultimate power, who gets caught up in corporate espionage – the kind with effects that ripple out across worlds.

I was blown away by the world-building, imagination, character development, and the strong writing. The car-racing scenes sent my heart into my throat and I was pleasantly surprised by the unexpected plot twists. The second book can’t release soon enough.

I’m looking forward to more amazing books in 2016. Thanks for stopping by! Happy holidays and see you in the new year!

#SixteensBlogAbout: Gratitude

Each and every day, I have many things to be grateful for. This week, I wanted to share seven days of gratitude.

On Saturday I was grateful for… my husband. I had a whole bunch of proofreading to do last weekend and he basically told me to take all the time I needed to get it done. He looked after the kids and the meals and kept everything sane around me.

On Sunday I was grateful for… my editor, who asked me to elaborate on a scene that made me see something in another scene, which I changed, just in time.

Candle Heart

On Monday I was grateful for… my beta readers, since I was cleaning out my inbox and came across a couple of really nice, encouraging emails that reminded me how much I appreciate what they do.

On Tuesday I was grateful for… my laptop, which lets me get writing done on the train to work, without which I would never find the time.

On Wednesday I was grateful for… my family, who have been so patient with me about responding to all sorts of things lately.

On Thursday I was grateful for… quiet moments, the kind where I can stop and take a moment to assess my priorities.

On Friday I was grateful for… my children and all their enthusiasm and joy that reminds me to appreciate the little things and to wonder at the beauty in the world.
