With all the holiday hubbub, I failed to post the announcement of the final Class of 2k14 book birthday! My apologies. If you want to read up on all of the books from the Class of 2k14, head on over to our official site. Lots of good stuff going on over there.
Congratulations to Nicole Maggi on the debut of WINTER FALLS!
Alessia Jacobs is a typical sixteen-year-old, dying to get out of her small town of Twin Willows, Maine. Things look up when a new family comes to town, but when she falls for the hot, mysterious son, Jonah, her life turns upside down.
Weird visions of transforming into an otherworldly falcon are just the beginning. Soon she learns she’s part of the Benandanti, an ancient cult of warriors with the unique power to separate their souls from their bodies and take on the forms of magnificent animals.
Alessia never would’ve suspected it, but her boring town is the site of an epic struggle between the Benandanti and the Malandanti to control powerful magic in the surrounding forest.
As Alessia is drawn into the Benandanti’s mission, her relationship with Jonah intensifies. When her two worlds collide, Alessia’s forced to weigh choices a sixteen-year-old should never have to make.
WINTER FALLS is published by Medallion Press.
Nicole Maggi knew she would be a writer since the 3rd grade, when she wrote a story about a rainbow and a unicorn who became friends, and her teacher chose it to read aloud to the class. She took a detour into acting for many years, earning a BFA in Acting from Emerson College and performing in many off-off-Broadway shows during her decade in NYC. Now she lives in Los Angeles with her husband, their daughter Emilia and two cats named Sawyer and Hurley. She practices yoga passionately and will use any excuse to bake something elaborate…mainly so she can eat it as soon as it’s done!
