YA Authors as YAs: The Whitney A. Miller Edition + Giveaway (US/Canada/EU)

YA Authors as YAs: The Whitney A. Miller Edition + Giveaway (US/Canada/EU)

 

Welcome to the 8th installment in a new interview series I’m running in conjunction with YABooksCentral.com called YA Authors as YAs.

Our goal? To prove that your favorite authors — no matter how AWESOME and COOL you think they are — were once awkward, weird, and they geeked out about fandoms and guilty-pleasure music JUST LIKE YOU when they were teens. (Most of them still do, you know, and that’s totally COOL, because being yourself is the ultimate in EPIC COOLNESS.)

Don’t believe me? 

Maybe Whitney A. Miller, author of THE VIOLET HOUR, coming March 8th, 2014 from Llewellyn / Flux can convince you with tales from her teen years.

About THE VIOLET HOUR

Some call VisionCrest the pinnacle of religious enlightenment. Others call it a powerful cult. For seventeen years, Harlow Wintergreen has called it her life. As the adopted daughter of VisionCrest’s patriarch, Harlow is expected to be perfect at all times. To other Ministry teens, she must be seen as a paragon of integrity. To the world, she must be seen as a future leader.

Despite the constant scrutiny Harlow has managed to keep a dark and dangerous secret, even from her best friend and the boy she loves. She hears a voice in her head that seems to have a mind of its own, plaguing her with violent and bloody visions. It commands her to kill. And the urge to obey is getting harder and harder to control …

The Violet Hour takes readers on a dark, delicious thrill ride across modern Asia and deep inside the dangerous secrets of an international cult. This gripping debut establishes Whitney Miller as an author to watch.” – Gwenda Bond, Author of Blackwood and The Woken Gods

“Miller presents an interesting, if gruesome, premise and leaves readers with a nifty ending…[The Violet Hour] should please horror fans.” – Kirkus Reviews


 

ABOUT Whitney:

Whitney A. Miller lives in San Francisco with her husband and a struggling houseplant.

She’s summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, ridden the Trans-Siberian rails, bicycled through Vietnam, done the splits on the Great Wall of China, and evaded the boat police in Venice. However, her best international adventures take place on the page.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
