Dog Eared Publicity Presents ASHES TO FIRE by Emily B. Martin, on tour January 31 – February 10, 2017
Inside the Book:
“You are a country.”
Those words have been the guiding force behind Queen Mona’s every move since she was a little girl—the idea that all her actions and desires were, first and foremost, decided based on what was best for Lumen Lake. It had kept her alive after the Alcoran invasion, it had driven her to retake her country, and now it is the steely resolve she needs to finally confront the despotic Seventh King, Celeno.
But when her diplomatic mission finds herself on the run through the swamps of Cyprien—accompanied by the unlikeliest group of companions—Mona discovers that while she is her country, she is also someone who has been sheltered by principles and bound by past mistakes. Now she must struggle to reshape her view of the world and face intimate new truths—not only for the good of her country, but for herself, as well.
A desperate journey to secure peace, and an even greater journey to discover herself, Ashes to Fire is the captivating and adventurous follow-up to Emily B. Martin’s Woodwalker—once more with cover art by the author herself!
Meet the Author
I am an author, illustrator, and environmental educator. My favorite genre to write is fantasy-adventure, while my favorite reads are usually detailed, thought-provoking historical fiction. Digital painting is my usual art medium, but I also love keeping watercolor journals and pencil sketchbooks.
Writing and art aren’t my only passions. In fact, they’re not even my official expertise (at least on paper). In 2012, I earned my Master’s degree in Parks and Protected Area Management from Clemson University. During the summer, I work as an interpretive park ranger with the National Park Service (with the hat and everything).
I love to hike, camp, and backpack with my family, and while I call southern Appalachia home, I have a not-so-secret love affair with the Rocky Mountains. I live in South Carolina with my husband and two daughters.
I am represented by Valerie Noble of Donaghy Literary Agency.
