Let me tell you a bit about the Brenda I know, so when you scroll down to see her cover, you'll be even more excited for her!
The first time I did The Writer's Voice writing contest with her (and Krista and Cupid) years ago, and we had a problem with the linky--like 80 more people had signed up, and we hadn't planned that. So we either cut the last 80 people who signed up, or read 80 more entries than we'd agreed on. In the end, we all said okay, let's read more. But guess who was the FIRST one to say, oh, no, we can't do that to these people! We need to read more, guys! Please!
You guessed it! Brenda has always had a very HUGE heart, and as the years go by, I am more and more impressed by her kindness and awesomeness. She is really one of those great people, you know. So, please, go ahead and also help her reveal her lovely cover by RTing and everything you can. :) Thanks!!
Anyway! Here's her amazing cover--I love it! Love those yellow eyes, love the blurb and the premise! Love, LOVE!
Aster Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn't. Aster discovers she has a veryunscientific gift—with a simple touch of the cards, she can change a person's fate.
Reese Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday—and Reese's is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself from his inevitable death...only to find the one person who can save him.
Aster doesn't know that the hot Dutch guy she's just met needs her help–or that he’s about to die.
But worst of all…she doesn't know that her new gift comes with dark, dark consequences that can harm everyone she loves.

Brenda’s fondest memories growing up is of hereccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was onlyfitting that she would choose to write young adult and middle grade novels with a bend toward thefantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores,and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
