So excited to track down a copy of this excellent stand-alone duopoly by Laurie R. King. While there’s a touch of thriller/mystery to it, these aren’t “detective” novels like her larger series, but instead intricate personal stories of people struggling with loss, trauma, and depression.

A famous woodworking grandmother moves to a remote, uninhabited island in the Pacific Northwest to restore the abandoned, fire-damaged ruin of an inherited off-the-grid house by hand in the aftermath of sexual assault.

Laurie R. King writes with remarkable empathy and fascinating detail. Complex and conflicted characters in unusual, outside-the-box stories that are no less gripping for sidestepping the trend toward thriller structure and pacing. Brilliant writing and storytelling!

Finally surfacing after an intense week of recording! Thanks again to the amazing Vancouver Public Library for access to a recording space. It’ll still take me some time to clean and master the files, but the first full take (all 21 hours of raw audio 😱😭) is finally done!! If you’re an audiobook lover and want to beta listen or get a review copy, give me a shout!

Featuring another super creepy middle grade horror by Jonathan Auxier on the #bookstagram today. If menacing twins, doomed dynasties and plucky Irish orphans are your thing, this is one to check out!

Just over four years ago (June 1, 2016) I started writing my first novel with a flight for courage at @brassneckbrew in Vancouver!

Today I celebrated my first day (finally) recording the audiobook by returning to where it all started!

With special thanks to @vancouverpubliclibrary who are providing a free professional recording space for the project—WAY better than my closet!

Wow middle grade can be such a gut punch sometimes. Seriously next level horror and tragedy!

Jonathan Auxier weaves a magical, surreal and whimsical tale out of the historical nightmare that was child exploitation and abuse as chimney sweeps, also touching on the history of anti-Jewish racism. Heartbreaking and beautiful MG fantasy/horror for upper middle grade readers.

Disney vibes~

What’s your favourite Disney? I should have loved Beauty and the Beast because 📚📚📚😍 but I really never felt that whole Stockholm syndrome romance, and also ugh jerk boyfriends getting “healed” 🙄

I can never decide whether Tarzan or Mulan is the best. Mulan going to war for her family is a whole mood, but TBH I’m really more of a Jane (👓🧳📚) & Tarzan’s 90s skater vibe was, um, yeah. 🥰

Shoutout your local libraries in the comments to give them some love! 💞 
My favourite copy of #blindtheeyes is obviously the library edition! 💖💖💖 I’ve been addicted to hauling bags of books back from my local library since (before) I could read. Also, let’s be real: I could never afford to buy all the books I read. 😅😭 This copy lives at the awesome @readlearnplay library network🎉 
They have an amazing local indie author program, and an incredible selection of YA fantasy in general (seriously, their buyer must be a fan because they never miss a new release ✨) #librarylove #locallibrary #librarybooks #libraryhaul #loveyourlibrary #readlocal #bcbooks #fraservalleybooks #canadianbooks #readcanadian #indiebooks #indiesareworthit #readindie #yafantasy #darkfantasy #yahorror #dystopianfantasy #climatefiction #monstersandmagic #booksandflowers #libraryedition #canadianauthor #indieauthor #fantasyauthor #kaiespace
It’s getting hot outside, so how about a good old fashioned dose of Halloween chills?

Just kidding—I know it looks paranormal/gothic but it’s actually historical mystery! Come for the murder mystery, stay for the plucky wannabe-investigative girl reporter hijinks 😂

Aaaaaaall the coffee. 🎉
.
Plus a really original remix of #prideandprejudice that you should definitely check out whether or not you’re a fan of the Jane Austen original!
.
Ibi Zoboi spins a unique tale that grapples with class, upbringing, race, immigration and more. A Brooklyn-born Afro-Latino teen struggles with gentrification, cultural identity, and romance when a wealthy family with two hot sons moves in across the street.
