Sweet Venom

This is the latest book from Tera Lynn Childs, author of Forgive My Fins, Oh. My. Gods, and other books.  Sweet Venom goes back to the world of Greek mythology with the story of Gretchen, Grace, and Greer, three girls adopted into different families.  Though they are adopted and come from different backgrounds, they can't deny that they are physically identical.  The shock of finding long lost triplet sisters isn't the only thing they'll have to deal with!

Gretchen is the only one of the sisters who knows anything about who they really are, descendants of Medusa.  Forget everything you learned about the hideous gorgon who could turn men to stone with a single glance.  That's just a smear campaign from Athena who was jealous!  The truth is that Medusa was a guardian of the seal that separates the human world from the world of mythological creatures.  Regular humans can't see the truth about these creatures; the three sisters are the only ones who can.

Gretchen thought she had everything figured out, but now her mentor is gone, two new untrained sisters have appeared, and the beasties are popping up everywhere!  These sisters will have to discover the truth, protect the humans, and keep from getting killed themselves, but first they'll have to figure out how to keep from killing each other!

We have a signed copy of Sweet Venom and a signed ARC of Sweet Shadows, the not-yet-published sequel to give away at the Biggest Reader party!  Get your tickets ready!

No book trailer yet, but I'll add one when I find one.  Here is a video of the author talking about making character collages.  You can see some examples for this book at Tera Lynn Child's website.
