March Photo and Announcement(s)!

First things first...
Happy almost spring everybody! Hope the days are getting warmer, sunnier, and the snow has melted, if you got snow. Us northeasters got a lot of it. 

Here's our March photo and here's hoping it provides some cool stories or inspiration for whatever medium you choose. This image is courtesy of graur codrin from

In addition....

It's been exciting and busy times for the ladies of Fiction Femme Fatale. With good news all around.

If you didn’t already know Amy and Krystalyn both have new, bright & shiny (and fabulous) books coming out later this year!

Last August Amy’s debut YA contemporary thriller GATED published with Random House Books for Young Readers. And just a few weeks ago Amy publicized the paperback cover for it along with the cover for the sequel, ASTRAY where Lyla’s intense story of being raised in a cult continues. This is a thriller you don’t want to miss as Lyla tries to navigate two worlds and finds herself a stranger in both.

In preparation for ASTRAY’s release on August 26th Amy is going on tour with authors Jessica Khoury, Christina Farley, Jessica Brody, and Anna Banks. You can see a teaser trailer here on YouTube. Amy will also continue to do regular video blogs over at YA Rebels on Tuesdays.

You can already preorder copies of ASTRAY on or make sure to request that your local, indie booksellers have it when it comes out.

Krystalyn debuted two YA fantasy novels last year. LEGASEA with Curiosity Quills and SPIRIT WORLD (both are available on Amazon). Her new book is a middle grade fantasy adventure, and frankly the main character is adorable as well as spirited. TRACY TAM: SANTA COMMAND will release with Month9Books in October. We can’t wait to share the cover with you once it’s officially official.

TRACY TAM follows Tracy as she seeks to dispel the myth of Santa in order to win a contest and help her sick cousin. But when she follows Old St. Nick's elves she realizes he may not be a myth after all.

We’re also happy to congratulate Jennifer on being one of the winners of the 2013 SCBWI On-the-Verge Emerging Voices Award for her speculative YA manuscript, THE FACILITY! SCBWI’s executive director Lin Oliver stated, “We were very impressed with The Facility and believe that [it will be] a valuable contribution to children’s literature.” The Emerging Voices Award seeks to foster the emergence of diverse voices in children’s books. As a winner of this award Jennifer will get an all-expense paid trip to attend this summer’s SCBWI conference in L.A. Jennifer was recently featured on the SCBWI blog in an interview with Lee Wind.

We’d also love to hear news from fellow writers as well. Sharing means caring after all. :-)
