let's pretend we're mermaids : a poem

 

Lana Del Rey plays out of a speaker. 
I couldn't hear it then but I do now as I walk past the speaker.
She sings a deep, historic moan of Summertime Sadness.
Green blue water sits still, but I can't.  I am blinded by the sun kissing the waters line.
Ripples of the pool reflect onto my skin, crawling smoothly over my body and my yellow swimsuit. Warm, tan skin glows in the sun before disappearing into the water.

Author Interview: K.A Emmons



A little while back I had the opportunity to read an Advanced Copy of Worlds Beneath. The second instalment in a YA fantasy / thriller trilogy by Kate Emmons, an on the rise author who writes beautiful stories from poetry to novels like Worlds Beneath. Not having read any of Kate's work I was also able to read the first book in this trilogy, The Blood Race. I was quickly hooked in to the story and had such a lovely time working with Kate. You can check out my review of Worlds Beneath on Goodreads and Instagram.
The book came out on July 1st so make sure to grab your copy!
Purchase Worlds Beneath on Amazon with the link here!

To celebrate the release of her book Kate Emmons is doing a blog tour! (basically a book tour but online through different blogs) Today I had the chance to interview Kate about her books and her writing process!
