AUTHOR ALERT: Leigh Fallon

Today's author alert features a very special Irish writer whose novel, CARRIER OF THE MARK debuted in the US & Canada on Oct. 4th (HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY!), which has (as expected) already been making huge waves in the world of debut novels.  So give a nice warm welcome to Leigh Fallon! HURRAY!  And a HUGE congratulations to Leigh on such an awesome accomplishment.

Having lived in a variety of countries throughout her life, originally born in South Africa, but raised in Ireland.  Leigh would eventually find herself settling down in Massachusetts (USA) with her husband, their four children and one double pawed cat. (Hm, I'd like to see this cat.)

But even more unsurprising are the rave reviews her first novel is receiving.  Publisher Weekly called it "An engaging read" while other reviewers have praised it as being an "intoxicating" read that's both "thrilling" and "bewitching".  And who would expect anything less from the sweet yet humbly brilliant Leigh.  Plus, isn't this cover simply TO DIE FOR?!! *sigh*  CARRIER OF THE MARK is now available at Amazon US and Barnes and Noble.

"Carrier of the Mark"
"When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. She makes close friends with the girls in her class, her relationship with her dad is better than ever, and she finds herself inexplicably drawn to gorgeous, mysterious Adam DeRis. Adam is cold and aloof at first, but when Megan finally breaks down the icy barrier between them, she is amazed by the intensity of their connection. Then Adam reveals a secret about the magical destiny that will shape both of their lives but also threatens to tear them apart..."
If you're a fan of YA fiction than you should definitely be following the author.  With CARRIER OF THE MARK being only book one in her The Carrier series, Leigh is currently hard at work finishing the rest of her books that I'm sure will be just as brilliant as the first.

For more links of where to buy and/or pre-order your copy of CARRIER OF THE MARK please visit Leigh's website.  And to read more about Leigh and her other shenanigans you can also find her also on twitter at (@Leigh_Fallon) and Facebook.

And yes, there's also a book trailer! LOVED IT!

Happy Writing & Happy Reading!
