Brewing Books Blog Hop - Once Upon a Retelling

Just as winter comes, I'm excited to announce that I'm part of the super amazing Brewing Books - Once Upon a Retelling tour. It's a group of fantastic authors offering up some great YA novels for your winter reading pleasure and some tasty beverage treats to make your reading time all the more fantastic.

 If you’d like to participate, you can visit all ten blogs, collect the numbers, and then enter the final total on the Brewing Books Rules Post ( for your chance to win one of our amazing Brewing Books Prize Packs! (But remember only ten authors not 14)


For this tour I'll be featuring my debut novel MERCURY RISES. 

MERCURY RISES is a retelling of Robin Hood, but from the point of view of a 17 year old Maid Marian, named Mercury. It's Robin Hood, mixed with Kiera Cass' The Selection Series, with a Gossip Girl cherry on top. 

I've paired this read up with David's Tea Electric Lemonade! This is a great treat either hot or cold, described as "This bright and zesty version is especially electrifying with its tart and fruity combination of yerba mate, lemon, currants and berries. Bold, tangy with just a hint of sweetness." Now, for anyone who's read the book, Mercury Masters is definitely just that: bold, a little tart, but sweet in her core. 

Check out the blurb below for the book InD'Tale Magazine said: 

"This modern Robin Hood tale is able to tease gasps, laughter, and tears from even the stoutest reader! Filled with nerve-wracking escapes and changing perspectives the audience gets a feeling of riding in a locked car, not knowing the destination but enjoying the time getting there." 

A girl looking for a way out.

Being the daughter of New America’s leader, Mercury Masters has everything a girl could want. A glamorous life full of beautiful people, and the power to have anything she wants, except for one thing—to escape. Because Mercury’s perfect life comes with secrets to keep. Dangerous secrets that if made public would destroy her, her family, and her father’s reign. Then she meets Hawk.

A boy looking to be a hero.

Hawk, a handsome prep school dropout turned vigilante, has his own family secrets. Deadly secrets that have haunted him since he was fifteen. But instead of fighting the ghosts of his past, Hawk has assembled a group of misfit hackers and thieves to save the future from the corrupt government of New America and the mysterious virus that is killing off its citizens. But trying to do the right thing is tough when the person you really want to save is your enemy’s daughter.

A love that could kill them both.

Powerful forces keep them apart, but coming together could be the key to saving New America from destruction—even though it may cost both their lives.
