However, Avery is devastated to arrive and find that Daniel is in a mysterious coma and will be taken off life support soon. Shortly after her arrival, Daniel mysteriously wakes up. But is this really Daniel? Avery falls headlong into the mysterious world of the fae as she tries to solve the mystery of what happened to her friend and what her own role in the story might be.

SHELFIES: Chelsea Lauren of Represent Publishing

by Bill Kieffer            

Represent Publishing is a publishing company I founded in order to illuminate diversity and embrace all of our unique qualities. For far too long, we’ve lived in a world where minorities and marginalized groups of people haven’t been represented in fiction books or television or movies. So now, I’ve created a place where we can embrace all of this and place the works into the hands of the readers who need them most. As of right now, there’s a focus on contemporary fiction and any and all children’s books. Really, the only way one would be turned away would be if the book had no representation or the representation was uneducated or harmful to the audience.
