Looking Ahead: Brodi Ashton and Everneath!

Looking Ahead is a feature in which new upcoming books and their authors are featured! Take a minute to read the interview, get to know them, read about their book(s), and find them on the internet!

Today we have Brodi Ashton and her book, Everneath!

TCR: Can you describe your book in ten words or less?

BA: Girl meets boy. Boy takes her to Underworld. Shenanigans ensue.

TCR: How has the publication process most surprised you?

BA: For every high high, there are also some low lows. But it's been a wild ride so far. The most surprising part has been how fast the time is flying by! I sold the book last September, and at the time, I was all, "18 months? The book won't come out for 18 months??" But now it's been about a year, and all I can think is, "Only 5 months? I'm not ready!!"

TCR: What was your reaction when you first saw your cover?

BA: *Sigh* *drool* And then relief that I wouldn't have to be one of those authors who can only pretend to like her cover. And the cover is such a reflection of the story! It's almost a literal depiction of a scene in the book. I'm very lucky!!

TCR: Where can we stay up to date on you and your book? 

BA: I blog three times a week at www.brodiashton.com. There's also an EVERNEATH fan page at www.facebook.com/everneath.

Thanks so much, Brodi! And that is a very gorgeous cover! It's going to be hard to wait until January 3rd for this one!

Here's the official summary of Everneath:
"Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything.

But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's..."
What do you all think about this one?
