Interview with Shelby Mahurin, Author of SERPENT & DOVE

Saturday, August 31, 2019

And the final guest of the 2019 Debutante Ball class is… Shelby Mahurin, author of the gorgeous, swoony, and all-around amazing YA fantasy novel Serpent & Dove! Shelby Mahurin grew up on a small farm in rural Indiana, where sticks became wands and cows became dragons. Her rampant imagination didn’t fade with age, so she continues to play make-believe every day—with words now instead of cows. When not writing, Shelby…

So Long

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

My book has been out in the world for over a month. I’ve been writing on this blog for nearly a year. It’s seemed interminable and lightning-fast all at once. And now, here we are at the end. Or is it the beginning? That’s the main thing I’ve learned during my debut year: we put so much importance on our first books, counting down until launch day and obsessing over…

Celebrate Yourself

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

In the months leading up to my book launch, I told my friends that since I had the world’s smallest wedding ceremony (held in my apartment, 7 guests in attendance), the day of Temper‘s release was going to be My Special Day. I was only sort of kidding. You only release your first novel once, and so many writer friends had told me that launch day itself could feel anticlimactic, even…

Learn Her Wrath

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

My second novel is slated for fall 2020. It’s not a sequel, but let’s just say it has some themes in common with Temper: like rage, revenge, women making men sorry for their bad behavior (and if they can’t make them sorry, they’ll make them suffer). Learn Her Wrath stars Dr. Scarlett Clark, a college professor with a secret life as a serial killer. She hunts abusive men on the campus…
