Shattered Secrets (Book of red #1)
by Krystal Wade .
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy.
Publication: March 3rd 2014 by Curiosity Quills.
After being kidnapped, hogtied, and stuffed in the trunk of a car, seventeen-year-old Abigail Nichols' boy problems seem unimportant.
She couldn't be more wrong.

The boy who saves her holds her heart.

But Derick Crawford also holds secrets.

Magical beings who guide human emotions are fighting an invisible war dating back to the dawn of time, and Abigail's one of them. The more she learns of her heritage, the less she wants to know. Armed with a very old, very massive book to teach them about their history, Abigail and Derick run away to a place where they think they can be safe and happy, only to have their troubles secretly hitch a ride.

Her history book is in a sharing mood, and it tells her to keep a secret of her own.

But has she put her trust in the wrong place?

And will the world survive if she has?

Guest Post- Shattered Secrets - The Playlist


I listen to a lot of music when I'm writing. So much that I could hardly ever peg all the songs that influenced my books. However, I tried to note quite a few while pounding out the words for Shattered Secrets. I used more current songs than in my previous books. So...enjoy!

Lights by Ellie Goulding

Afterglow by Phaeleh

Delicate by Damien Rice

Transcendence by Lindsey Stirling (and, really, all of her songs were probably playing at some point while I wrote Shattered Secrets)

Glad You Came by The Wanted

Heavy Feet by Local Natives

Young Blood by The Naked and Famous

Ways To Go by Grouplove

No One's Gonna Love You by Band of

Horses
 (they even earn a mention in the book)

The Funeral by Band of Horses

In Reverence by David Tolk
So, these were some of the major influences in my writing. Trust me, there are many, MANY more. Idon't think I could write without music.


is happily married to the love of her life (don’t gag) and raising threebeautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C., and everyday she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get thereThe horrid commute gives Krystal plenty of time to zone out and think about her characters in full, brilliant details (she’s a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give her a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to her on the fifty mile trek into town (she picks up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe this).
Krystal has been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of her oh-so-large life. When she’s not working, commuting, or chasing after her three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find Krystal outside talking to her chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training her amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?)
