Starcrossed is the story of Helen Hamilton, just your average high school kid – on the outside. Inside, Helen’s always known she was different. She’s super-strong, freakishly fast, overwhelmingly beautiful, and from Massachusetts –Embarrassed by her abilities, Helen’s always been content to fade into the woodwork – until the mysterious Lucas Delos and his family move into the neighborhood, and Helen begins to learn, for the first time, who she really is. Dreamless, the second novel in a triology picks up main character Helen Hamilton as the only Scion who can descend into the Underworld. In this follow up to the popular first novel she has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on.

We talked about her books and her usage of social media to create a platform for herself and how that has influenced her fans, publisher and her own empowerment. She’s fascinating funny and very engaging and there’s plenty of good information about how an author goes about doing their own publicity and social networking. So if that’s something you’d like to know about I highly suggest you follow the link and take a listen.
