New Release: CLAIMING ATARIS by Ruby Knight

For the first time since I started this blog I skipped my Monday Post. The reason behind this skip is two-fold. One, I’m not feeling well. My muse is sick right along with me. I try and get her to work, she’s reaching for the remote control. And she hasn’t watched TV in years, so I know she’s really not feeling well (and neither am I, though my crazy quotient must be rising). The second reason is that I get to share with you a brand new release! My writer friend Ruby Knight has a new novel releasing today and I’m so excited to share it with you all.

Claiming Ataris Cover Final copy

Seventeen year old Quincy learns she is the heir to a royal kingdom, to claim her place in the Thalassic she must allow the ocean to claim her, as a mermaid.

Thalassa means: of the sea. Every single important moment in Quincy’s life has to do with water. She sits now at the bottom of the pool at her new school, drowning. Feeling like someone was holding her there.  She was about to die in the same way her parents did, three years ago.

She is about to gulp down the water, when two strong arms grab her and rip her from the water.  Her last fleeting thought before breaking the surface was something that would haunt her, “If I would have taken a breath underwater, it would have felt like coming home.”

Ruby wrote her first book during her senior year of college and hasn’t stopped writing since. She graduated with a degree in History and a minor in Psychology. When she isn’t manically writing stories on her laptop, she is coaching a high school dance team. You can find her hanging out with her tall, dark, and handsome husband or playing with her adorable little boy. She is from San Diego but was raised in Northern Utah. Her dad nicknamed her Rube at a young age and it always stuck. She currently lives in Utah under the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains. Ruby loves to read all things New Adult and Young Adult. She is a wannabe yogi and shamelessly indulges in reality TV. You might find her with a Diet Coke with Vanilla in it on most days, as this is what she considers to be water. Ruby continues to write more stories. Look for more titles by Ruby coming soon.
