So, part of good mental health includes having a strong support network. Lemme tell you, writers KNOW how to support one another.
Elizabeth Mueller proposed that we writers spread our support of Bethany Wiggins and her debut novel SHIFTING by posting this post on our blogs. SHIFTING goes on sale tomorrow and it’s DEFINITELY on my list of books to read!
Give some applause to Elizabeth and her fabulous idea and give a woot-woot! to Bethany!!!!
*claps and woots*
After bouncing from foster home to foster home, Magdalene Mae is transferred to what should be her last foster home in the tiny town of Silver City, New Mexico. Now that she’s eighteen and has only a year left in high school, she’s determined to stay out of trouble and just be normal. Agreeing to go to the prom with Bridger O’Connell is a good first step. Fitting in has never been her strong suit, but it’s not for the reasons most people would expect-it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. But even in her new home danger lurks, waiting in the shadows to pounce. They are the Skinwalkers of Navajo legend, who have traded their souls to become the animal whose skin they wear-and Maggie is their next target.
Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.
Several years ago Bethany’s sister dared her to start writing an hour a day until she completed a novel. Bethany wrote a seven-hundred page fantasy novel that she wisely let no one read–but it taught her how to write. The fifth novel she write, SHIFTING, is being published by Walker Books September 27, 2011.
