An Update on My Life

Hi all,

Things have been busy so I thought I'd take a moment and write a post about it all. On September 17th, after more than a year of planning, I got married.








It was the craziest, most emotional day of my life thus far and I pretty much remember none of it...which is why I'm so grateful for photos.

Since June 2015 (when I got engaged), I've also been working on a book titled WHEN STARS COME OUT. I've written a million drafts and just finished one I'm pretty happy with. I've been going to conferences and talking to editors and agents. I'm hoping to edited this book to perfection and then query...oh, and also start work on Cannon!

Love,

Ashley

Announcing BFF!



Fun news, guys! Nicole Singer and I are starting a book review and reading blog! While we both love (and will continue) our writing blogs, we also wanted a site where we could fan out as readers. And we figured you might too!

The result is Books. Fantasy. Fandom. (Or, BFF for those who like clever acronyms.) 

On the site, you’ll find: 

  • Weekly reviews of fantasy books across all ages 
  • Friday Fandom posts about our favorite fandoms on the large and small screen 
  • Q&As with authors like Kate Elliott, KA Stewart and more. 
  • Categories and tags that help you find reviews in our archives (even tricky finds like “YA for boys”) 
  • Our review policy in case you’ve got something you think we’d love! 
As you can probably tell by the number of exclamation points, we’re really excited about BFF and hope you are too!! In fact, we hope you’re so excited you’ll spread the word and stop by to enjoy. We can’t wait to share our favorite books and new reads with you!

If you have questions, salutations or are interested in a guest post, email us at booksfantasyfandom@gmail.com. 


Happy reading!

I'm Engaged!

If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I've dated my boyfriend Aladdin for a long time--five years an a quarter on June 27th, actually.

And that's when he proposed! 

He handed me a copy of The Lord of the Rings: 


And I opened it:


And he asked me to continue our adventure. 

I, of course, said yes.




Everything has been crazy since that day, but we're so excited!

Cover Reveal: NACOMA KNIGHT!

NACOMA KNIGHT releases October 31, 2015! 

Blurb: 

Anora Silby wants her mother alive again. She’d do anything to feel her touch, hear her voice, and understand the strange circumstances surrounding her death. So when the new kid, Thane Treadway, offers outlandish answers, Anora listens. 

Thane believes Anora’s mother had her soul stolen by the Cercatore di Anime, a race of soul eaters. It isn’t until Thane starts forgetting things and having random outbursts of anger that Anora begins to wonder if Thane has personal experience with the Cercatore. 

Anora’s search for answers leads her into the center of a mid-world battle between good and evil—the soul and the soulless. Not only that, she is the Eurydice, the only one of her kind who can enter and exit spirit. Her gift makes her a target, and soon Anora finds herself faced with the loss of her mother or the love of her life. 

Can Anora see past her grief long enough to make a decision or will she lose everything?

Are you ready!?!
