Authors Who Deserve More Recognition #4

I didn't even need to think about who the next author in this post-series would be. I was searching through Goodreads on my favourite author list and found Anna Banks's name. Now, Anna does have a pretty good amount of fans already and her series The Syrena Legacy has been circulating again in the book-blogging world due to the release of the third -and final (boohoo) book in said series. 

I hope nothing but the best for you, Anna! Your writing is fantastic, your characters are incredibly real (well... minus the whole being a fish thing) and I loved every second of Of Poseidon and I cannot wait to get my hands on the second and third in the series!!

Ooooh and after getting an email this morning Anna has finally been allowed to release some amazing news! Here it is:

"So I can finally tell you about NEMESIS, my upcoming YA Fantasy, since the deal was announced yesterday! I'm so excited to be working on this project with Feiwel and Friends! Ahhhh! I've wanted to tell you guys for a long time, but had to keep it under wraps which nearly KILLED me. So, here are the details:
Liz Szabla at Feiwel and Friends has acquired Nemesis, a YA fantasy by Anna Banks, in a two-book deal. In the story, a princess who possesses the power to create energy escapes her father, who wishes to weaponize it, only to be captured by another kingdom where she discovers that her powers could be used to fight a terrible plague. Publication is planned for spring 2016; Lucy Carson of the Friedrich Agency brokered the deal for world rights.
 I can't wait until you meet Sepora, the Serubelan princess and Tarik, the Theorian prince. I think you guys will fall in love with these new characters just as I have!"

Princes and princesses? Count me in!!! *Sees release date* *Dies a little inside*

For anyone who hasn't read any of Anna Banks's books you absolutely should! Here are all the links you'll need to check her out:

About The Author

New York Times Bestselling author of The Syrena Legacy series. 

Grew up in a town called Niceville. No, seriously. I graduated from Niceville High School. So did J Lo's second husband. And the guy that plays Aqua Man on Smallville dated my best friend. 

Now I indulge my tendency to lie by writing the lies down and selling them to publishers. Well actually my agent sells it, so she's an accomplice to lies. One of my lies is called OF POSEIDON. The sequel is called OF TRITON. The last and final installment is OF NEPTUNE, and it released May 13, 2014. 

And um. I also write adult fiction under pen name Anna Scarlett. One of the adult lies is DEGREES OF WRONG.

That is all.
