January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month.
My guest on today's YA MONTH - "A Book and a Chat" was BREE DESPAIN author of "THE DARK DIVINE" which had it's launch party just a few days ago.
Like all good times when you are enjoying yourself, this one hour special just seemed to fly by, being both a fun and educational sixty minutes.
During the show we learned about how life and directed Bree along the various byways to find her true calling of producing, this her first, but certainly not her last novel.
The Dark Divine has received rave reviews about her book full of suspense and mystery, characters with unexpected depths, a romantic plot yet with twists and turns that keep the reader wanting to turn the page. And all the time as the tension continues to build you'll learn more about the supernatural elements and the creatures in this fantastic YA novel.
Bree shared with us her experiences from her writing and having Egmont as a publisher, to her book launch where King's English Bookshop or TKE in Salt Lake City, where so many people turned up it was standing room only, how some people even had "Dark Divine" t-shirts. the book stored which actually "asked" if they could host the book launch, and despite extra copies of the book sold out on that day. They even baked special purple halfmoon cookies for the event.
During the show Bree divulged the writing of a second and possibly a third novel about the more in the lives of the Divine family as they deal with their problem and Grace and Daniel learn to accept and cope with the differences between them.
And why does Bree dream about large lumps of cheese covered in honey?
