STARFLIGHT Launch Blitz & Giveaway

STARFLIGHT Launch Blitz & Giveaway

Hey there, booklovers! I’m author Melissa Landers, and I’m thrilled to announce the release of STARFLIGHT, the first in a brand new sci-fi series from Disney-Hyperion. I originally pitched this story to my editor as “Overboard” (one of my favorite romantic comedies) meets “Firefly” (an amazing show that was tragically cancelled after one season). STARFLIGHT follows the misadventures of Solara Brooks, a penniless felon who indentures herself to her high school nemesis, Doran Spaulding, in exchange for passage to a new world. But when Doran’s memory is temporarily erased, Solara convinces him their roles are reversed—that she’s the master and […]

Book Review: Friday Barnes, Girl Detective

Book Review: Friday Barnes, Girl Detective

Friday Barnes is a character that amused me completely. I haven’t been drawn into a kids mystery in a while and I absolutely fell in love with the first in this new series. Friday reminds me of Matilda and Harriet the Spy rolled into one. She’s been forced to grow up herself and has exceeded becoming a genius as she has nothing better to do than read the thousands of books in her parents’ house. They are both brilliant, but have no time for her. She also is obsessed with reading mysteries. When she gets the chance to help solve […]

Author Interview: R.A. Spratt – Blog Tour

I’m excited to be apart of the Blog Tour for Friday Barnes: Girl Detective with Macmillan Kids! Today, I have author R.A. Spratt answering some questions, along with sharing a piece of original art from the book’s illustrator Phil Gosier! Check out my book review of Friday Barnes: Girl Detective as well! • How did the idea for “Friday Barnes, Girl Detective” come to you? It basically started with me wanting to have more money (writing children’s books is generally not wildly lucrative), which lead to me trying to figure out how I could sell more books, which lead to be wondering […]
