Em Hey ya'll!
My name is Em Shotwell. I live near Baton Rouge- but was raised (for the most part) in Mississippi. I have also lived in North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. :-)

My debut novel is releasing on April 5th. When I pitched the book, i actually pitched it using the words (I kid you not) "redneck x-men." lol. :-) I am pasting the blurb and cover below- if anyone wants to give it a chance. :) ARCs are available on Netgalley, and there are sign ups for my blog tour through tasty book tours. (There are give aways).

Blackbird Summer by Em Shotwell
When people fear the unknown, being Gifted is a curse.

In the cornerstone of the rural south, Brooklyn, Mississippi, no one dares make eye contact with the strange Caibre family. Until the rewards are worth the cost. The townsfolk come, cash in hand, always at night, to pay for services only a Gifted can provide.

No matter the Gifts prevalent in her family, at twenty-one, Tallulah is expected to follow the path laid out for her: marriage, babies, and helping her mama teach the family home school program. She’s resigned to live the quiet life and stay out of trouble…until she meets Logan.

An outsider and all around rebel, Logan doesn’t care about her family’s reputation. Yet after a tragic loss wreaks havoc on the crumbling relationship between the Caibres and the townsfolk, Tallulah must decide if love and freedom are worth risking everything.

Randy (randyr84) | 1 comments Not my typical genre but iy actually sounds quite interesting! Notably, I like that the setting is my own neck of the woods. I will definitely pick up a copy, starting with The Chans.

Em Thanks Randy! It is a fun book. :-) (if I do say so myself) and a quick read.
