Y’all, I am so excited to share this book with you. But first, a little background …
Lindsay and I met almost 6 years ago at the very first Realm Makers conference. We ended up in the same suite together and had an amazing time getting to know each other (and our other 2 suite mates). She is friendly and smart and just a ton of fun to be around.
Ever since then, I’ve been waiting for her fiction stories to be presented to the world … and here is The Story Peddler!
You’ll see a blurb of the book below, along with other pertinent information. The Story Peddler is a fun YA fantasy about Tanwen, a story peddler, who finds herself in quite a bit of trouble. As hard as she tries to keep her story weaving within approved standards, she finds herself on the wrong side of the law. And that can only mean trouble!
Lindsay created a unique world with lots of equally unique characters, like a pirate who is also a story peddler. Or a princess who is at odds with the king–and isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Or a farmer boy who’ll do anything to save the woman he loves.
The story has some interesting twists that will keep you glued to the pages. And if that isn’t enough to get you interested, I have just one word for you: Fluffhopper. Yes, I know. You can’t resist now.
Read on to find out more about the book and where to get it!
About the Book
Selling stories is a deadly business
Tanwen doesn’t just tell stories–she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.
During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king’s guard hunts her down…and they’re not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she’s not the only outlaw in the empire. There’s a rebel group of weavers…and they’re after her too.
