Marlena Frank has always been fascinated with monsters, and now gets to write about them. She has been writing horror and fantasy short stories since 2010 and has had her work published in a number of anthologies, from Heroic Fantasy Quarterly to The Sirens Call.

Her YA Dark Fantasy novella, The She-Wolf of Kanta, was released in April 2018 from Aurelia Leo. Her debut novel, Stolen, came out January 2019 from The Parliament House Press, and on release day became an Amazon Bestseller in a YA category. When she isn’t thinking up strange tales, she’s an active member in the Atlanta cosplay community and the Atlanta chapter of the Horror Writers Association.

Hardback usually isn't available on release day, but should be available shortly afterwards. It usually takes about a month or so in my experience.

Audible has been a big help with this, since it turns my commute into much-needed reading time. I've also checked out some excellent horror like Josh Malerman's Bird Box, which was on my to-read list ever since I heard it mentioned on The Outer Dark podcast. I'll probably swing back toward more cheerful fantasy at some point, but right now I'm reveling in dark fiction.(less)

Marlena Frank Rapunzel's Daughters is up here on Goodreads! How cool is that?? Now everybody can add it to their to-read list and ogle over the incredible stories and beautiful artwork!

Marlena Frank Just saw that the App Store for the Nook Color opened today. You can bet I'll be downloading it tonight to try it out. Looking forward to a decent PDF experience as well as being able to have Flash and Email capability.

Lisa Kessler I have a Kindle and I LOVE it!!! Hands-free reading and never losing your place is a beautiful thing! :)

THanks for checking out Across the Veil too!!! I hope you enjoy it... It should be in the B&N store soon or you can get it on Smashwords.com for the Nook too I think... :)

Marlena Frank So I bought myself a Nook Color last weekend. I have a feeling this is going to greatly increase my reading output this year. How cool is it to have your books at your fingertips, and always the right size for my purse? ;)

So far I'm loving the free book Fridays, the sudoku, the crossword, and how easy Calibre is able to transfer Project Gutenberg books over. And once our library system starts offering more eBooks, I'll be able to read those easily on it as well!


Marlena Frank I'm loving it more and more. Plan to move my stuff over from Visual Bookshelf once their site's back up again. =)
