February Author in the Spotlight

February Author in the Spotlight

Announcing:  February Hometown Track Minnesota Author in the Spotlight.

I am so ready for February and the promise of Spring right around the corner.  As always, I am on the lookout for good books and new authors.  This month's author is Anna Waggener and her book Grim is her debut.  I met Anna at the Twin Cities book festival in October when I went to see her read from her book.  I am excited to tell you about this new book. 

Here is the synopsis of Grim from Goodreads:

A fantastic debut from the winner of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards novel contest.

When Erika wakes up after a horrific car crash, she finds herself somewhere between earth and heaven, between life and death. She doesn’t want to accept help from Jeremiah, who she’s not sure she can trust, even as she finds herself drawn to him, following him into a grim city of souls. She’s not sure who wants to help her and who wants to hurt her. And she’s desperate to get back to her children.

Shawn’s never thought about having to shoulder the responsibility of caring for his young sister Megan and his reckless older sister. And he never imagined that the three of them would find themselves in a haunted wood, sometimes chased, sometimes assisted, never sure where they’re headed.

With Grim, the terrifically talented Anna Waggener delves into the place where myth becomes reality, where family can distort you as easily as it cares for you, where death and eternity meet.

This month you can expect a book review, a contest, an author interview and quite possibly a Guest post from Anna.  You can find Anna at her website::

Have a great reading month!!  Happy February!
