Year in Review

My 2017 was epic. A little too epic.

I had three new book releases, I was nearly killed by a tick from the Writing Barn in Austin Texas, and I'm still struggling to recover.







And on JANUARY 2, 2018, my next book releases:




 This is possibly my favourite book in the series because I got to write in a wintery setting, it's a little inspired by my own family, and it has a wolverine in it - the coolest animal ever.
Also --- Avalanche! is my first book to receive a STARRED REVIEW from KIRKUS! 
Wolverines everywhere are cheering!

"A content-enriched page-turner with surprising depth." -- Kirkus Reviews Starred Review

If you PRE ORDER, just let me know and I'll send you a signed custom bookplate and other fun SWAG as a thank you. 


I wasn't able to do as much reading this year as I normally do. (or travelling) My brain was out of order for several months. But I did find some favourites to mention:

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor  - gorgeous prose as usual
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller - spunky, funny heroine
A Promise of Fire by Amanda Boucet (note: I didn't care for the second book in the series as much)
Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling - unusual main character in MG

What were your favourite reads of 2017? 


Once again, I'm sitting on some news. I'll hopefully be able to share soon. 

Thanks for reading!

Sorry that darned tick is still giving your trouble.
Looks like you and your books had a stellar year.
Have a blessed Christmas!

That's wonderful to get a starred review from Kirkus! Not easy. Neither is getting a good review from Publisher's Weekly or Library Journal. (We've been fortunate to get a few.) I look forward to the next book in your series.

Best book I read this year? Since most of what I read was manuscripts, I'd say either DLP's upcoming MG Corners or sci-fi Revolution 2050.

Have a Merry Christmas, Terry.
