This month’s Author Takeover comes from wonderful debut author Rosalind Jana, whose first book Notes on Being Teenage was released in the UK this past weekend. Aside from writing, Rosalind has just finished her degree at Oxford University and runs a successful blog on everything “from the psychology of colour to feminism and the media.” As such it is clear which character in the Harry Potter series serves as a mirror to her book-loving soul.
The wait is finally over – the sequel to “The Queen of the Tearling” has arrived! “The Invasion of the Tearling” picks up right where “The Queen of the Tearling” left off – with the army of Mortesme looming right on the border of the Tearling. Nineteen-year-old Queen Kelsea may have stopped the trade in human trafficking that has plagued the Tearling since the reign of her mother, but her problems are only beginning.
The long wait for the sequel to “The Queen of the Tearling” is almost over – “The Invasion of the Tearling” will be released next Tuesday, June 9! To tide you over for these last few harrowing days, we’ve got an exclusive interview with author Erika Johansen where she discusses Kelsea, the Tearling, and of course, which Hogwarts House she aligns herself with.
“The Queen of the Tearling” was introduced to the world in a flurry of publicity. Debut author Erika Johansen received a much publicized seven-figure advance when she sold the rights to her trilogy to HarperCollins, and not long afterwards, Emma Watson was attached to produce and star in the film adaptation of the novel – before the first installment was even published!
