Hey everyone! I’m excited to introduce you to my friend Lindsay A. Franklin and her debut novel, The Story Peddler. First, a little history. I met Lindsay Franklin years ago (like, almost ten years ago) at a writing conference. Both of us were eager writers who were just starting to pitch our novels. Fast forward to today: I’m now the published author of five novels with my next one coming out in November. And Lindsay is the bestselling author of an awesome young women’s devotional and is about to present to the world her first fantasy novel. Yeah!!! How far we have come 🙂
First, her cover is awesome and I must share it because it is awesome!
Happy sigh. So pretty! And here’s the story you’ll find inside this beautiful book:
Selling stories is a deadly business
Tanwen doesn’t just tell stories–she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.
During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king’s guard hunts her down…and they’re not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she’s not the only outlaw in the empire. There’s a rebel group of weavers…and they’re after her too.
The Story Peddler received a starred review from Library Journal. Don’t miss out on this book for you, for your friends, for everyone!
