Blog Tour: The Torcian Chronicles: Defiance by P.J. Reed

Torcian Chronicle

TorcianChronicles_CVR_LRGSummary: Mesham sits dejectedly in a tiny garret above an inn, as the lands of Torcia fall to the magically-enhanced army of the infamous Mivirian Horde. One of the last surviving ancient warlocks of Torcia, Mesham knows he is marked for death.

The Torcian king knocks on Mesham’s door later that evening and offers him the chance of rejuvenation in return for a seemingly impossible mission into the heart of Mivir. Mesham reluctantly agrees, only to realise the evil of Mivir has spread to the very top of the Torcian government.

As Mesham undertakes his quest to complete the mission, he finds himself hunted by his king, by the mighty Torcian warbands, and by the Horde.

But he cannot fail, for the fate of Mesham’s beloved Torcia rests in his hands.

Dreams Do Come True- Meeting My Favorite Author

On Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of attending one of my favorite author’s book signings and I almost peed my pants.  I have been a fan of Kristin Hannah since I was a freshman in high school, and discovered Firefly Lane with my best friend, Kaley.  After that book tore me to pieces, I devoured every Kristin Hannah book I could find, and she has consistently been one of the first authors I recommend to people in search of a good book.  The way she writes her characters is unparalleled for me, and I get more emotionally invested in her books than in any others.


Hearing her talk about her process, and how she got started writing was super inspiring, and I could have listened to her talk about it forever.  When I was waiting in line for her to sign my book, I was so nervous to actually meet her, but she was so welcoming and open, and asked which book was my favorite.  I told her that I loved True Colors, and she was surprised and said that no one ever says that book!  I was trying not to geek out, but I was fangirling hard core, and my cheeks hurt from smiling so big the whole time.


I can’t wait to read The Great Alone, especially after hearing what inspired it, and how it came to be.  I have yet to be disappointed by one of her books, so I have no doubt that I’ll love this one as well.



August 2017 Wrap-Up

This year really is speeding by! I’ve had a busy August, finishing up Bullets Over Broadway in Maine, teaching dance at my home studio in Wisconsin, and then heading to Denver, Colorado where I have been rehearsing A Chorus Line.  It was also a great reading month for me, and I read 4 books I absolutely loved.
