Woohoo! My author copies of Wonder Light: Unicorns of the Mist are here!
I kept checking and checking the front porch, and then, after a long evening of running around and going to judo practice, I pulled into my driveway and there was a BOX! I stopped the car right there and ran out to discover . . . it was just a box of judo gis. But behind that box was another one with Sourcebooks in the return address and Wonder Light on the label! I was so happily surprised I forgot my husband was on his way home with Wendy’s to console me for my continued state of booklessness. By the time I was done marveling over these babies, I had to zap my cold fries in the microwave. But I have to say holding my first hardcover book in my hands was worth more than hot Wendy’s fries!
There’s a new giveaway going on for Wonder Light: Unicorns of the Mist. This time 5 hardcovers are up for grabs at Goodreads!
The Unicorns of the Mist series by R.R. Russell
Wonder Light: Unicorns of the Mist (Sourcebooks, May 7, 2013)
Deep in the heart of a mist-shrouded island, an impossible secret is about to be discovered.
Twig is used to feeling unwanted. Sent to live on a pony ranch for troubled girls on a misty, haunted island, Twig is about to discover the impossible—someone who needs her.
Jolted awake from a bad dream, Twig follows the desperate whinny of a terrified horse out to the stables. There in the straw is a bleating little scrap of moonbeam. A silver-white filly with cloven hooves and a tiny, spiraling horn.
A baby unicorn.
Now Twig knows what secret is hiding in the island’s mist: the last free unicorn herd. And a mysterious boy named Ben who insists that this impossible creature is now Twig’s to care for. That she needs Twig’s love and protection. Because there’s something out there in the deep, dense shadows that’s hunting for them…

So . . . on Monday I was at judo practice supposedly practicing a new turn-over with my friend Jenna, but really joking about husbands and their crazy ideas. I noted that my husband has a way of following through with his crazy ideas—like starting our judo club, for example.
"Just think," Jenna said, "If he'd never done that, you'd probably be writing about unicorns or something!"
The cover for Wonder Light: Unicorns of the Mist has been updated, with a blurb from the amazing and generous Robin Hobb! I’m so thrilled and grateful!
“Dares to explore a world where unicorns are creatures of wonder and power, and girls can find both strength and courage to be themselves.” -Robin Hobb
- It started out as a horse-like blob . . .
I’m giving away a signed ARC of Wonder Light on Goodreads!
