Y’all – I won an award!

I’m so honored to announce that The City of Veils was awarded the 2019 Florida Author Project YA Book of the Year! Brynna continues to over-perform in everything that she does. This was just icing on the cake of an amazing year for my girl.

I’ll get to travel to Nashville in February to be honored along with the other 2019 Florida Author Project winner for adult books. Thirteen states in all participate in this program, and in March they will select a national winner (!!). I’ve also got a full-page spread in December’s issue of School Library Journal, as well as some other promotional opportunities. It’s all so exciting and awesome, and I’m just thrilled to have been chosen!

I’m still trying to wrap my head around how to leverage all this for marketing and promotional reasons. I’m way delayed, thanks to Brynna’s fourth book taking over my brain. But I am hoping to set up a small library tour of the state in the latter half of the year.

If you’d like to see me visit your local library, let me know! 

From bestselling author S. Usher Evans comes an award-winning young adult fantasy series filled with masked mischief and mystery. Fans of Throne of Glass and The Kiss of Deception will get swept away in this brilliant series about a runaway-princess-turned-vigilante who must resume her royal duties when her father and brother are murdered.

Two dead royals.
A slimy crime boss.
A city on the brink of chaos.

Thirteen-year-old Princess Brynna fled an arranged marriage and became a masked vigilante. Now, at eighteen, she’s on the cusp of taking down the city’s most ruthless crime boss, Lord Beswick—that is, until her father and brother are murdered, and she’s dragged back to a life she thought she left behind.

Even as she juggles council meetings and royal decrees, Brynna refuses to give up on her vigilante mission to bring Beswick to justice. But the politics of Forcadel are as volatile as its streets, and Brynna isn’t sure whom she can trust in the castle. And with two royals dead in less than a month, she must use all her wits to keep herself from becoming the third.

Get swept away in a brand new world of intrigue, adventure, and masked mischief that Foreward Reviews calls, “entertaining from the first page to the last.”
