I have some fabulously exciting news for you about rising author Hailey K. Jacobs, and that news is that the first draft of her debut novel, The Winter Sun, is complete! That means that all that stands between you and reading a compelling tale of friendship and magic is a rigorous series of editing, rewriting, more editing, more rewriting...
Ok, so publication is still a ways out, but getting the first draft completed is the hardest part of the process, and that block has been checked!
I had the honor of being one of the beta readers for this fantastic story, and I am so excited for you to experience it as well, even though the official publication date is still pending. Although only in its draft phase, this book was an absolute page turner (just ask my husband; I devoured it in one go, totally unable to put it down). Without giving away any spoilers, here's what I can tell you about The Winter Sun:
The best of friends since childhood, brilliant coder Ray and faery prince Jack knew each other's every secret.
Every secret except for the most important one, that is.
Torn apart by the struggles of adulthood and faced with an impossible task, will they be able to put aside their differences to save their respective worlds? You'll just have to wait and read The Winter Sun to find out!
About the author:
An avid reader from a young age, Hailey K. Jacobs believes that stories are the center of humanity. You either consume them, dream them, or both. Although she has a number of hobbies, to include digital drawing, ice hockey, and writing itself, she spends much of her days, as her "9 to 5", plundering the secrets of the universe with science as the lens. Whether through science, art or literature, she considers herself to be a storyteller and hopes that you enjoy a peak into her odd world.
Jacobs lives in Washington, D.C. with her game-obsessed husband, as well as her fur-children: a stubby corgi and a too-smart, chunky orange cat.
