#BookBlitz – Owl Eyes: A Fairy Tale by Molly Lazer
Ok, I need to calm down a little bit as I am so excited to be apart of this book blitz!
This was released on the 20th March so I am a bit slow with my reading of this book, but I can’t wait to read it! This is a fairytale retelling (who doesn’t love that!) of Cinderella so this won’t be your fluffy Disney version we all know. I mean just read the author’s bio, you know this will be good and it’s her debut!!
Molly Lazer is a former associate editor at Marvel Comics, where she worked on books such as Fantastic Four, Captain America, New Avengers, and cult favorite comic book Spider-Girl. After returning to graduate school to receive a degree in education, she began a career as a high school reading, writing, and drama teacher. She also serves as a professional critiquer for Comics Experience, helping aspiring comic book writers finesse scripts for publication.
In 2016, Molly received a MFA in Creative Writing from Rosemont College. Her short stories have been featured in numerous literary magazines including Gone Lawn, LIT, and Silver Blade. She lives outside Philadelphia with her husband and twin sons. Owl Eyes is her first novel.
Just look at this beautiful front cover!
Now I could put the synopsis of the book in my post, or an excerpt but what I found to be more interesting is Molly’s playlist for writing her book, and in particular Chapter 14!
Check it out!
This is my “Chapter 14 Playlist,” which I created to set the mood while writing one of the climactic and most emotional scenes of the book. I think it reflects the mood of the chapter…and my totally random taste in music.
