At the Other End:
Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel-both physically and emotionally-a gift she's kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.


But Sonya's power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can't decipher when other people's impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.


As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust-and which to betray.

the Sorry post & store update

Hello!!
I know it's been a while (nearly two whole weeks now) since I've posted, and I have a good reason I PROMISE.

First of all, I just want to say I'm so so so sorry to all my readers because I've been so MIA lately, I promise that it will change soon and you will start to see me so much that you'll all get sick of me :)

I might not be posting still for another week or two, but it's because I've been putting all my focus and attention on getting the first of my bookmarks and posters and designs ready to start the shop! (I haven't even been reading much either unfortunately) My shop name is Between the Pages but I'll let you all know once everything is up and running and you can start purchasing. It shouldn't be too much longer until I am up and running, just doing a few more designs so I've got a nice range for you all to choose from. 

If you have any suggestions for what you want to see on bookmarks or posters, just let me know in the comments! I will only be selling the "watercolour" bookmarks, which are super thick and durable and on pretty textured paper. I cannot wait for you all to see them. Stay tuned for more updates. Fingers crossed the next update will be that the shop is up and running!
