    Rosemarked reviewer appreciation giveaway!

    Edit: The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winners: Tiffany H, @thebookenigma from twitter, @owlsneagles from twitter, and @book.words_ from instagram Rosemarked is finally here! The good news:  I think Rosemarked is the best book I’ve written thus far, and readers seem to agree.  It’s been chosen as an Amazon best book of the month, RT book reviews called it “an engaging, mesmerizing read,” and School Library Journal says  it’s a “fast-paced, well-written, can’t-put-down fantasy that will appeal to a wide audience.” It’s also been chosen as the featured book for two subscription boxes.
