MiraInk event and Interview with Maria V. Snyder

This past week I had the great pleasure of attending an event with MiraInk to celebrate the publication of Shadow Study and attending a blogger event with Maria V. Snyder.  It was absolutely wonderful, not only to meet Maria, but also other incredible new-to-me book bloggers and the lovely staff at MiraInk.  There was great conversation, food, wine, and goody bags!

And! I was able interview Maria V Snyder and we had a great chat about her new book, favourite characters, fangirling over authors, addictions and book bloggers! Check it out. And here is the information about Shadow Study...

Once, only her own life hung in the balance…

When Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. She survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia.

Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands—and protect her relationship with Valek.
Suddenly, though, dissent is rising. And Valek’s job—and his life—are in danger.
As Yelena tries to uncover her enemies, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked.And now she must find a way to keep not only herself but all that she holds dear alive.

A huge thank you to Maria, Cara and everyone at MiraInk for hosting such a wonderful event!

Meteorologist turned novelist, Maria's been writing fantasy and science fiction since she was bored at work and needed something creative to do. A dozen novels and numerous short stories later, Maria's learned a thing or three about writing. She’s been on the New York Times bestseller list, won a half-dozen awards, and has earned her MA degree in Writing from Seton Hill University where she's been happily sharing her knowledge with the current crop of MFA students. She also enjoys creating new worlds where horses and swords rule, 'cause let's face it, they're cool, although she's been known to trap her poor characters in a giant metal cube and let them figure out how to get out. Readers are welcome to check out her website for book excerpts, free short stories, maps, blog, and her schedule at
