So there I was. Minding my own business on an average Sunday morning. Munching on some Rice Krispies. When I opened the newspaper and saw an article in the Life section (because, really, who reads the rest of the paper?) for local up-and-coming YA author Kristina McBride.
Wait, wait, WAIT.
Kristina McBride is repped by ALYSSA EISNER HENKIN. Her debut novel, The Tension of Opposites, came out on May 25 from EGMONT USA.
HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD ABOUT HER UNTIL NOW?! SERIOUSLY, guys. She graduated from my college, for goodness' sake. She stomps around my stomping ground. And she was published by EGMONT, is represented by TRIDENT, and I have MASSIVELY FAILED as a supportive author of local, fellow supportive authors.
To make up for my shameful ignorance, OMGLOOK at these super cool things:
Firstly, her pretty pretty website: http://www.kristinamcbride.com/home.php
Secondly, her pretty pretty blog: http://kristinamcbride.livejournal.com/
Thirdly, her OMGAMAZING book trailer, created by Rocky Smith of ROCK IV Productions, LLC (who, by the by, is ALSO a graduate of my university AND ALSO stomps around my stomping ground. Who knew, right?).
Excuse me whilst I peruse her blog for a bit.
