Author guest post: Evelyn Ink

I was approached by author Evelyn Ink a while back to read her book Ill-Fated, which I was quite impressed with and will be reviewing tomorrow. First, however, I wanted to introduce you to Mrs. Ink with an author guest post. Without further ado:

Dear Readers,

Much like the heroine of my novel, the stars may have aligned to make your life grim and loathsome if you are thinking of reading Ill-fated. I, Evelyn Ink, the sad conveyor of this dark and terrifying story feel obligated to write down the events as they were told to me. However, you as a young and attractive reader, have no such obligation to read these events. I’ve heard there are several fantastic vampire romances out at the moment depicting thoughtless and weak girls trapped in a paranormal love triangle. Perhaps one of those books is the book for you.

I myself am considering a book about vampire space gnomes trapped in a paranormal love triangle, or a book about a steampunk zombie who is both remarkably inventive and trapped in a paranormal love triangle. I will report back on the excellent writing and philosophical depth of these books after I have read them.

Sadly, Ill-fated is not one of those sorts of books. Not only is there no love triangle (can this even be classified as YA?), but the protagonist, Leila Edgewick, is a sassy and resourceful girl, if not a bit on the cynical side, and placed in a very unfortunate, if not–– dare I say … ill-fated position. If you are one of those peculiar readers who don’t mind darkness and danger over fluff and pillow talk, knives over nail polish, and monsters that bite rather than sparkle, perhaps this is the book for you. 

Read at your own risk, and don’t swim for at least a half hour after reading.

If this pricked your curiosity, you can skulk about on my blog:

Ill-fated is available on amazon:

Author Bio

The plaque on my lawn reads the Edgington Mansion, it was once thought to be lovely I suppose, though now rather decrepit and quite full of secrets. I live here with my husband. He is a philosopher, and quite mad. Our house is full of books. Stacked, piled, and always advancing out and away from the shelves that ought to keep them in. I paint and draw, write and read, and occasionally go down into the dark, dismal, cobweb-creepy dungeon, to do laundry.

If interested, you may choose to follow me on my blog or check in with me on facebook. However, due to my absolute terror of electronics and a crippling phobia of the social media (technical term: Socmephobia), my blog posts tend to be infrequent and erratic. Also, due to several post exile investigations I am generally prevented from giving any specific information regarding my whereabouts...

Thanks to Evelyn Ink (I just love that name!) for stopping by. 
Be sure to come back tomorrow for my review of Ill-Fated!
