DARKNESS BECOMES HER is out today!

So happy the day is finally here! Just got a fabulous new review from Night Owl Romance as well. Top Pick!! Thanks Leslee!

This book is my first Young Adult (as most of you know, LOL). It's got a heavy urban fantasy influence, a strong female lead, is slightly post-apocalyptic, a little dystopian, paranormal... It's a bit outside the box, but I like to think of it as a very twisted Clash of the Titans for teens set in a hauntingly re-imagined New Orleans. Hope you'll check it out!

"Darkness Becomes Her is part “Lightning Thief,” part “Twilight,” and part “Maximum Ride.” [It] will leave many readers clamoring for the next installment."--SLJ

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Hi, Ms. Gay. Can I ask if your more recent author photo, posted on the Simon and Schuster site, is in the Public Domain (meaning can it be used for an article)?
