THE DECEIVERS Swag + More!

THE DECEIVERS comes out February 5th and I am so excited!

The_Deceivers_CoverWelcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.

When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.

At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials―because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark―a senator’s son―and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

THE DECEIVERS has a cover!

Hello friends!

I present to you the cover of THE DECEIVERS, the first in my new Vale Hall series, out February 5th, 2019!

The_Deceivers_Cover

What’s that? What is THE DECEIVERS, you ask? What a great question!

THE DECEIVERS is my next YA novel, the first in a trilogy, about a girl who gets accepted into a school for con artists. It’s loosely based on the myth of Valhalla, where Odin, god of gods, sends his Valkyries (badass warrior women) to collect the souls of fallen soldiers and bring them to Valhalla (his fancy house) so that they can feast and prepare for the final battle at the end of the world (Ragnarok). Only in my book, Odin is the director of a private school called Vale Hall, and he sends his students, like my main character Brynn, out into the city to collect blackmail from marks of his choosing, which he will later use to…OH WAIT I’M SAYING TOO MUCH.

How about the official description:

Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.

When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.

At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials―because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark―a senator’s son―and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

It’s a little different than my previous stories, but don’t let that worry you. Think twists of PACIFICA, fierceness of GLASS ARROW, friendships of METALTOWN, and romance of ARTICLE 5, all in a contemporary setting. Basically, it is everything I love in the world crammed into 300-something pages. YOU WILL LOVE IT. (I answered a bunch of questions that are saved in my Instastories if you’d like to watch me babble about it.)

Excited? You can add it to your Goodreads TBR HERE.

And of course, if you want to Pre-order, you can do that too! (Keep your receipts. I think we’re doing a pre-order campaign!)

Chapter one was released exclusively to my newsletter subscribers, along with chapter 1 of the book, last week. To make sure you don’t miss any more updates about THE DECEIVERS or my other books, make sure you’re signed up!
