New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack's young adult debut: Roar.
In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.
Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora's been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.
To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.
Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.
She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.
Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.
When I'm in college, it feels like is a never-ending list of papers to write (even more so than a never-ending train of tests). Even as an author, I know I occasionally start to dread my next assignment.
That’s why it is essential to have a process for writing. Having a process can help you write better in less time. That goes for school and novel writing. Today I wanted to share an infographic that was created by Instructional Solutions on how to become a better writer. The graphic guides you through 19 actionable tips. Below are 3 of ones that I think are super important
This is my third week of Junior Year and I find myself still getting back into the homework mindset while also trying to finally get back to my writing and remembering to be more social than I have been at school so far.
All in all, I find myself tending towards iTunes and Netflix to an unhealthy degree. Thankfully, last night I spent 2 hours writing The Belgrave Legacy's sequel Unmoored and replying to beta reader comments on The Matchmakers. Unfortunately, I still need to psych myself up to fix and finish this draft of The Matchmakers before I then revise it into Draft 2, revise, edit, and publish it. Who knows how long that will take. But the good news is that I'm writing (and now blogging) again. I would say that's progress.
I decided to give a comprehensive list of all the musicals I've seen spanning my lifetime so far (16 years). WARNING: Only read this if a) you have time to read a long list and b) are willing to look up any musicals you don’t know. The ones with links are either significant to me in one way or another, or just one of my favorites.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
