"I'm a fan of Hieber's Victorian gothics/gaslamp fantasies, so I was excited for her hardcover debut.

“I assure you; while I look like a ghost, I'm no spirit or demon. I'm nothing but a girl struggling to make her way in an intolerant world. I bleed, I love, and someday, I'll die.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

“I was in love. With a two-dimensional object. A mute in love with a painting. Lovely. Just lovely.”

“The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
John Scalzi

“I assure you; while I look like a ghost, I'm no spirit or demon. I'm nothing but a girl struggling to make her way in an intolerant world. I bleed, I love, and someday, I'll die.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

“One spirit remained unaware of his presence, staring at Miss Parker with such longing that he reluctantly decided to let it stay. The spirit, a hollow-eyed girl with ringlets and clothing from long past, reached toward Percy, wishing to touch her. Alexi understood. When left to her own devices, Miss Parker was neither shy nor awkward; she was radiant.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

“The Goddess spoke to all the dead. She was beloved for it. It seemed she passed on that gift to you. Oh, it taxed her immensely, but she tried to set as many to rest as she could. Sometimes it only takes one word of kindness, you know, to set a soul at ease.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker

Aria Hi Leanna!

Thanks for accepting my friend request.

Darker Still was amazing!! :)

I've been trying to get my hands on your other books but I haven't seen one of them in my country but I would find a way to get them.

Thanks for creating a wonderful book. Can't wait for the next one.
