Author Megan O’Russell arrives in Lancaster County

After being out on the road in the national tour of The Wizard of Oz since fall 2017, author Megan O’Russell of the Girl of Glass series arrives in Lancaster County. O’Russell’s most recent release is Boy of Blood, the second novel in the Girl of Glass series, which was published April 10, 2018.

Megan O’Russell is the author of several young adult series including The Tethering, Girl of Glass, How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days, The Girl Without Magic, and a Christmas novella, Nuttycracker Sweet. Megan’s short stories can also be found in several anthologies, including Athena’s Daughters 2, featuring women in speculative fiction. Megan is a professional performer who has spent time on stages across the country and is the lyrist for Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical, which received its world premiere in 2015. When not on stage or behind a computer, Megan can usually be found playing her ukulele or climbing a mountain with her fantastic husband.

O’Russell’s most recent professional performer endeavor is the national tour of The Wizard of Oz, but she may be a familiar face already. In the past few years, she has been featured in Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre’s productions of Peter Pan, Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical, Holly Jolly Christmas, and Anything Goes.

Aaron’s Books at 35 E Main Street in Lititz will host a book signing and question and answer with O’Russell on Saturday, June 16 at 1:00 pm to talk about the new release of Boy of Blood and what it is like to be an author on the road as a performer. All are welcome to this free event and no tickets are required.

 

About The Books

Girl of Glass CoverGirl of Glass

Two worlds… one glass wall… no turning back.

The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention, and new drugs have given the outsiders the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid – but it comes at a price.

Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, being trained to protect her little piece of the world that has been chosen to survive. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. But when outsider Kieran Wynne begs for Nola’s help in saving an innocent life, she is drawn into a world of darkness and danger. The suffering on the other side of the glass is beyond anything Nola had imagined, and turning her back on the outside world to return to the safety of the domes may be more than she can stand. Even when her home is threatened by the very people Nola wants to help.

 

Boy of Blood CoverBoy of Blood

After Nightland’s vicious attack on the domes, the safety and perfection of the world within the glass has been contaminated. Desperate to rebuild, outsiders are allowed into the domes to help, breaking the cardinal rule: outsiders and Domers must always be separated. But the city is in shambles, crumbling into chaos without the Vampers of Nightland to keep order, and one name is carried on the wind: Nola.

Clinging to Jeremy, Nola struggles to find a way to exist in the domes, turning her back on all she learned in the city. But when one of the outsiders brings the dark secrets of the domes to light, the line between survival and murder blurs against the specter of the dying world.

Can Nola follow the dark path laid out by the domes? Will the dangers of the night become her new sanctuary?
