Spotlight: Prophecy Girl by Faith McKay

Today is the release day for Prophecy Girl by Faith McKay! It's an urban fantasy about two sisters with otherworldly abilities who might not live long enough to fulfil their fate. We're excited to be spotlighting Prophecy Girl and posting an excerpt from the book! Here's a synopsis:

Ever since Samantha Winthrop's mother moved them to Lacuna Valley, supposedly in search of better weather, the list of strange questions she has no answers for has been growing out of control.

Does her little sister, Violet, have the ability to make things happen just by "praying" for them? Are Sam's dreams really predicting the future? Is she destined to marry the boy she just met, and what is the mysterious orb that he's guarding? Why does she get the impression that there are dangerous creatures watching from the woods?

While Sam should be focusing on answering those questions, there is one other that makes them seem almost irrelevant: Is her mother planning on killing her and Violet?

Excerpt from Prophecy Girl:

She scanned the hallway again, and there he was. Her breath caught in her throat. Down at the other end of the hallway, half hidden behind a pillar, he nodded and half waved to her. His hair was its usual spiky mess, he wore his favorite plain black wayfarer sunglasses and obligatory black t-shirt, and yet he looked very different somehow. Distant. He felt like someone she'd known years ago; he felt like someone she had always known; he felt like someone who was tied to her straight through the earth, even if he were all the way on the other side. She wasn't surprised to see him, he was always going to be there. She wasn't sure why she was so sure of that, but she was, and it gave her both peace and heartache at the same time. She raised her hand and didn't exactly wave, but moved it slightly to acknowledge his presence at the other end of that string that tied them together. Head down, she walked away and tried not to think about how much that string had cost her.

About the Author:

Faith McKay writes stories about characters with real world struggles in otherworldly settings. She is the author of PROPHECY GIRL, a story where characters struggle with the idea of having a destiny. In comparison, she feels really lucky that her destiny was to struggle with comma placement and be that awkward lady who points out puns at parties.

Other things to know about Faith… She wears two different colored shoes. She is a survivor of child abuse. She has lived with chronic illness for over a decade. A lot of people don't like her because she laughs too much. It's also the reason a lot of other people do like her, so go figure. She listens to more music than people are probably supposed to. She's a nomad. The word sounds really cool, so a lot of people say it, but she actually lives in an RV with her husband and their pet bunny rabbit, Dorian Gray.
