Yeah, baby!


Okay, I haven’t the slightest clue about how one hunts down blurbs. Luckily for me, my wonderful agent Suzie is way more on the ball than I’ll ever be.

If I’d been left to my own devices my only blurb would have been: “This book is amazing!” – My Mom. Yeah, see why it’s a good thing I’m not left to do this stuff alone?

As is turned out, Suzie not only scored AMAZING blurbage, but those blurbs came from an awesome collection of writers. Basically, nnnghhh.

So huge THANK YOUS to the people who took the time to read When the Sea is Rising Red, and offer their blurbs for us to use, to Suzie for her fine blurb-hunting skills, and to Editor Beth for putting them together. You have made me a delighted cat.

“Dark, perilous, haunted. Death surrounds this courageous female hero.  I couldn’t stop reading, not when I had to know more so badly!” –Tamora Pierce, New York Times–bestselling author of the Beka Cooper trilogy.



When the Sea is Rising Red is a moody, atmospheric tale characterized by a creeping sense of dread that makes for a compelling read.” – Jacqueline Carey, New York Times–bestselling author of the Kushiel’s Legacy series.



“In this smart, subtle fantasy reminiscent of Charles de Lint or Emma Bull, dreamy prose and exquisite world-building move the reader toward a powerful and fitting conclusion.” —Rae Carson, author of The Girl of Fire and Thorns.



“Rich in atmosphere and romance, When the Sea is Rising Red is a compelling tale of magic, friendship, and rebellion. A stunning debut!” —Suzanne Young, author of A Need So Beautiful.

Seriously? SERIOUSLY. How awesome is that? I am totally making this face right now:

  3. Get. Out. Oh, wow, that’s some serious blurb love. Hooray for you! (And can I say how glad I am Suzie’s my agent, too? Because I was starting to get nervous about finding MY potential blurbers. 🙂

  4. Even if I didn’t *already* love the book (and basically everything you’ve ever written), those quotes would get me all excited to read it…I can’t wait until I get to read it again in its beautiful, real book form! And share it with all my students, too! 🙂 Congratulations, cat!
