SCAVENGER HUNT POST
I’m so excited to be hosting the lovely Amy Rolland on this hunt:
A. Lynden Rolland is a former high school English teacher, and she enjoys visiting classrooms, camps, and book clubs to discuss reading, writing and publishing. When she isn’t chasing her young children around town, she moonlights as a writing tutor and gymnastics instructor. Her debut novel, Of Breakable Things, was published in 2014. The sequel, Of Delicate Pieces, released last fall. You can connect with A. Lynden Rolland online through Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram, or Tumblr.
I loved Amy’s debut novel, Of Breakable Things, and am so excited for this awesome sequel, Of Delicate Pieces, which is on my TBR list!
Hello hunters! I hope you’re having fun with the bonus material and adding tons of books to your TBR piles! The book I’m featuring is Of Delicate Pieces, part two of my supernatural series!
When I was writing the sequel to Of Breakable Things, I wanted the reader to see more of the mind-bending magic of the afterworld. My characters live in a place where walls can breathe, where objects have personalities, and where reality is distorted. It’s beautifully haunting, but the difference between the first book and the second is that Alex, the main character, finally begins to see the imperfections. It’s the afterlife but it’s not heaven, and spirits are not angels. They’ve done horrible things which have affected the foundation of the society they’ve established.
The afterworld is its own character in the series, and my Pinterest board gives readers a taste of what I see when I’m writing.
Thanks for being on the hunt, Amy–and those Pinterest pics are eerie and awesome! Aside from being a talented author, Amy is also super nice and recently added a sweet baby girl to her family. Hmmm…I wonder if she’ll end up with 7 children someday?
Leave a comment below and enter to win a signed copy of the new speculative fiction anthology, TICK TOCK: 7 Tales of Time from Wicked Ink Books which just released 3/28/16. It features 7 sci-fi/fantasy authors, including yours truly, and shows how everything can change in a second…a minute…an hour. I’ll use a random number generator to choose the winning comment so good luck!
