YA Indie Spotlight: Michelle Muto


Hi Everyone!

I'm very pleased to have YA author Michelle Muto on the blog today. Michelle is promoting her newest YA urban fantasy novel: The Book of Lost Souls.



Isn't this cover beautiful? This book is hot off the presses and priced at $1.99. How can you beat that?

SUMMARY

When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.

Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

RATING: PG-13 for very mild language (the b-word), some thematic violence.

  3. Hi Michelle,
    In your book, the young witch Ivy finds herself torn between light and dark magic. She wants to be good, but the dark is tempting. In a lot of YA, the heroine only has to choose between one good or another. Why'd you go with good and evil?

    Love the book!

  4. Excellent question!
    I think so many of us struggle with this same balance everyday.
    For Ivy, it's harder. She's young and still struggling to find out who she is and what she wants.
    Given her situation, her talent, and a lost spell book, how far is she willing to go? What is she willing to risk - even to do what is right? No matter what decision she makes, she understands it alters her life as she knows it.
