The-Looking-Glass-Cover
Find the diary, break the curse, step through The Looking Glass! 
Fifteen-year-old Alice Montgomery wakes up in the lobby of the B&B where she has been vacationing with her family to a startling discovery: no one can see or hear her. The cheap desk lights have been replaced with gas lamps and the linoleum floor with hardwood and rich Oriental carpeting. Someone has replaced the artwork with eerie paintings of Elizabeth Blackwell, the insane actress and rumored witch who killed herself at the hotel in the 1880s. Alice watches from behind the looking glass where she is haunted by Elizabeth Blackwell. Trapped in the 19th-century version of the hotel, Alice must figure out a way to break Elizabeth’s curse -- with the help of Elizabeth's old diary and Tony, the son of a ghost hunter who is investigating the haunted B&B -- before she becomes the inn's next victim.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:

“If you're looking for a good ghost story that's meant for suspense and not horror, or if you're just a lover of some really good paranormal magic, this is just the book for you.”Jasmyn - Bitten By Romance

I think one of the creepiest things about The Looking Glass was the way it made me feel so claustrophobic. It was similar to the way I felt when I read Stephen King's Under the Dome -- trapped and a bit panicked.”Kelly – Goodreads Reviewer

“It was so different and so beautifully written and detailed that I really could not put this story down and I felt as though I was there with Alice throughout the story. I have read LOTS of paranormal, YA genre books, but this is truly unique!”
Melissa – Simplistic Reviews

Jessica Arnold
Jessica Arnold writes YA, codes ebooks, and is currently a graduate student in publishing at Emerson College in Boston. She spends most of her time in class or work or slogging through the homework swamp. If she has a spare moment, she’s always up for a round of Boggle. Given the opportunity, Jessica will pontificate at length on the virtues of the serial comma, when and where to use an en dash, and why the semicolon is the best punctuation mark pretty much ever.

Pretty-Dark-Nothing-cover
It’s been twenty three days since Quinn has slept for more than minutes at a time. Demons have invaded her dreams, stalking her, and whispering of her death. The lack of sleep and crippling fear are ruining her life. Energy drinks and caffeine pills don’t make a dent. When Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. The demons are determined to keep them apart, and Aaron from discovering the secret locked away in his memory. Together, they could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:

“This is a surprisingly very psychologically draining book and reminded me of the first season of American Horror Story and Stephen King's Carrie.”Syahira – Requiem for More Books

“With a fast paced plot and more twists and turns that you can count this is one book you won't want to miss.”Katie – Curse of the Bibliophile

“If you are into paranormal books that are a little darker, if you are into love stories and knights in shining armour, if you are into books that leave you breathless [and] craving more, then go and read this book. Like seriously, read it now!” – Marie – Goodreads Reviewer

  1. I haven't read a good suspense book in a long time so I am going to add The Looking Glass to my TBR list. Thanks for the post.

  2. Want! I love how The Looking Glass makes you instantly think it'll be an Alice in Wonderland reimagining, and it does seem like that at first (I mean, the character is Alice!) But once she's back in the 19th century, the info I see makes me think that any similarities to the classic story are coincidental. Maybe if I get to read it *hint hint* *wink wink* *nudge nudge*, I'll see differently, though. I also love that both of these authors are getting comparisons to Stephen King. Makes it seem like a great pairing. If you like one, you'll probably like the other :) Not that it sounds like there's any risk of *not* liking them both!

  4. I love the looks of both these books. I like the idea of the covers, which are beautiful and definitely attractive to me. And from the synopses, sounds like some good stories behind the beauty as well.
