YA Indie Spotlight: Megg Jensen

Hi Everyone!

Today's YA Indie Spotlight features Megg Jensen. Megg is one of the authors writing under the DarkSide Publishing label, which is a group of indie authors working together to put out amazing YA literature. This is such a unique concept, and I plan to feature all of the DarkSide writers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Megg co-runs DarkSide publishing, and is the author of the YA novel, Anathema.

Reychel is a slave girl surrounded by magic, lies and manipulation. Her best friend disappears in the middle of the night leaving Reychel to face her fifteenth birthday, the day her master burns his brand into the back of her bald head, alone. She's sheltered from the outside world and doesn't have any hope for escape, but when people desperate for freedom ask for her help can Reychel learn to believe in herself?

RATING: A mild PG for violence and kissing.

Megg Jensen has been a freelance parenting journalist since 2003 and began writing YA novels in 2009. She co-runs DarkSide Publishing, is a member of SCBWI, and blogs about writing while juggling freelancing, volunteering, and family life. She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, two kids, and their miniature schnauzer, Ace.

Anathema is available for

at Smashwords, and through the iBookstore.

What are people saying about Anathema?

"A fun read that left me wanting more."

"If you love urban fantasies, you're going to love this one. It's NEVER dull, and the descriptive writing pulls you right inside the book, into the world of these characters. I absolutely LOVED it."

"A promising start to a great new trilogy."

Anathema is currently priced at $2.99, and the second book in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy, Oubliette, will release in June.
