As an eighteen-year-old resurrectionist, Allie knows staying vigilant means staying alive. The blood of the resurrectionists is heavily regulated, only used with the express permission of the group’s leaders for fear of being discovered. She’s taken every precaution--self-defense classes since childhood, extensive weapons training with knives, and even going so far as to befriend a homeless boy named Ploy, who unknowingly trades a few nights a week on her couch in exchange for being a human tripwire to those after her blood.
But as Allie and Ploy’s feelings for each other grow, and a hunter starts taking out the resurrectionists of Fissure’s Whipp, Allie begins to realize even her best laid plans won’t be enough to keep both Ploy and herself safe.
Protecting a girl he shouldn’t love, from a threat he understands too well, Ploy must face his past to save his future in Allie’s world--a world where bringing back the dead can cost you your life.

Interview

1. Welcome back, Leah - tell us where the hell have you been and what have you been doing?

Thanks! Yeah, I definitely went off the map there for a bit, but I wanted to see where the monsters live. I brought some back with me and started selling my dead fairies and other art through my Petite Grotesque shop on Etsy. (http://www.petitegrotesque.etsy.com/). I wrote as well and have several projects inching toward completion. The first one to come out will be Vial Things, which is about a girl resurrectionist, and set in the New Orleans-esque town of Fissure's Whipp.

2. Vial Things sounds amazing, what inspired you to write it?

The book opens on Allie showing up at the house of a stranger demanding to know where the body is. She basically HBIC'd her way into my heart. Once Ploy (the hot homeless boy who occasionally crashes on her couch) started showing himself and I caught on to the dynamic between them, I had to know how their story ended. Would the hunters after Allie's blood find her? Would Allie and Ploy admit their growing feelings for one another or would their stubborn hearts undermine any chance they have at survival, let alone together. It's a dark, bloody book and I loved following the surprise twists and turns as I wrote it.   

3. In 5 words or less, explain Vial Things.

Twisted hearts and strange genes. 

4. What can we expect from you in the future?

Well, Vial Things will be available August 9th and I'm hoping to release the sequel in late September. I have big plans in store for you guys, and some well loved characters from past projects might be making a reappearance soon. ;) To read the first two chapters of Vial Things now and make sure you're getting all the updates on the new books, head over to my mailing list http://eepurl.com/b7xGj1

Eternal Sacrifice Blog Tour Button

Thank you for stopping in to check out my stop on the ETERNAL SACRIFICE blog tour for the amazing Stacey O’Neale!

Eternal Sacrifice

The explosive conclusion to Stacey O'Neale's award-winning Mortal Enchantment series reveals the secrets of the fantasy world!
Valac has stolen two of the sacred objects. In a bid to rule all four courts, he has threatened to use Excalibur to cut the mist that protects Avalon--ultimately ending the lives of thousands of elementals. As the Akasha, Kalin has the power to stop him. And she refuses to lose anyone else she loves.
Will she have to sacrifice herself to save them?
Desperate to save Kalin's life, Rowan searches for the long-lost creator of the mist. But what he finds is the very last thing he expected. Everything he thought he knew about his past is turned upside down, and he questions whether he's meant to be the savior or the elemental that destroys them all.
Told from Kalin, Rowan, and Marcus's perspective, the final installment to the series follows their journey of courage, duty, sacrifice, and love.

Ava Hale will do anything to find her sister’s killer…although she’ll wish she hadn’t. Because the harder Ava looks, the more secrets she uncovers about Kesley, and the more she begins to think that the girl she called sister was a liar. A sneak. A stranger.

Excerpt from Frayed:

Dear Kesley,

My therapist tells me I should write you a letter. Every time I see her, she asks whether I’ve started, and every session I tell her it’s a stupid idea.

But here I am, writing a letter to a dead girl. I tried saying it’s morbid, but that ran dry when she said it could be therapeutic. Like flushing all my thoughts and feelings out of my system and onto paper.

About The Book

Title: THE KING SLAYER
Author: Virginia Boecker
Pub. Date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
|Format: Hardcover, eBook

Find it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Goodreads

An action-packed and suspenseful sequel to The Witch Hunter, perfect for fans of Graceling and the Grisha Trilogy.

"I think, in time, you'll either be my greatest mistake or my greatest victory."

Former witch hunter Elizabeth Grey is hiding within the magically protected village of Harrow, evading the price put on her head by Lord Blackwell, the usurper king of Anglia. Their last encounter left Blackwell ruined, but his thirst for power grows stronger every day. He's readying for a war against those who would resist his rule--namely Elizabeth and the witches and wizards she now calls her allies.

Having lost her stigma, a magical source of protection and healing, Elizabeth's strength is tested both physically and emotionally. War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves.

"Filled with everything a good fantasy book needs: swords, poison, black magic, and betrayal."--April Tucholke, author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, on The Witch Hunter
