Apocalypsies Feature: Marissa Burt

Welcome to my next APOCALYPSIES Debut feature starring Marissa Burt!
In this feature I ask a bit about these fabulous debut novels and of course something about fluffy animals and ghosts because this is my blog after all and I'm nothing if not true to my themes...

Welcome Marissa!

Shop Indie Bookstores
Book Title: STORYBOUND by Marissa Burt
Release Date: 4/3/12 - Today!


In the land of Story, children go to school to learn to be characters: a perfect Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They take classes on Outdoor Experiential Questing and Backstory, while adults search for full-time character work in stories written just for them.

In our world, twelve-year-old Una Fairchild has always felt invisible. But all that changes when she stumbles upon a mysterious book buried deep in the basement of her school library, opens the cover, and suddenly finds herself transported to the magical land of Story. But Story is not a perfect fairy tale. Una’s new friend Peter warns her about the grave danger she could face if anyone discovers her true identity. The devious Tale Keeper watches her every move. And there are whispers of a deadly secret that seems to revolve around Una herself….

Your Fave thing about your book:

With the timeless appeal of books like A Wrinkle in Time and the breathtaking action of Inkheart, Storybound has all the makings of a new classic. Brimming with fantastical creatures, magical adventure, and heart-stopping twists, Storybound will leave readers wishing they too could jump through the pages into this enchanting fairy-tale world.

Your Fave fluffy animal:

No question. Cats. Someday, I will be that lady with all the cats.

If you were a ghost, where would you haunt?:

My homes with happy memories.

Sounds good! I'll have to pick this one up. :) Also, where can I sign up for Evil Villain classes? Those sound like fun. I've already got the evil villain lap cat. (I will also be a cat lady. Did anyone else get the Pro-CATS-tination woot shirt for writing in? Because that's what it's like. Really.)

hahaha! Just looked up that shirt. Now I must have. Laptop or newspapers are cat magnets.

Thanks for the interview, Leanna! And I have to say I'm pretty positive your bunny header will feature in my next nightmare.

You're awesome Marissa and I can't wait to dive in to your work, and Persebunny the bunny says you're welcome. :)
