I am so excited to be hosting a leg of the blog tour in honor of Therin Knite’s second book, Othella – book one in the Arcadian Heights series! Many may not know, but stumbling across Knite’s blog is a huge part of the reason I began Honoring the Followers. Knite is basically an indie superstar, at least in my book. Well, on to the good stuff.
Othella (Arcadian Heights #1)
Welcome to Arcadian Heights, where the world’s brightest minds go in…and don’t come out.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Georgette McClain can’t resist a juicy tip. So when a rumored crazy ex-CEO gifts her evidence of a vast conspiracy involving the world’s premier scientific community, Arcadian Heights, she sets her sights on the story of a lifetime. And all she has to do to grab it by the reins is sneak into the most secure facility in the world—and expose it for the slaughter house it is.
Tech company CEO Marco Salt has it all. Fame. Fortune. Family. But not long after Marco’s beloved genius daughter is invited to join Arcadian Heights, a rogue agent reveals to him the horrifying truth about the revered scientific community. Forced to flee for his life, Marco finds himself on the run with a deadly secret in his grasp and a single goal in mind: destroy Arcadian Heights.
Quentin Belmont has been the Arcadian Heights spokesman for the better part of two decades, and his singular motivation is to keep the community safe at all costs. So when an internal incursion leaks vital information to an outside party, Quentin preps a “cleanup” without a second thought. But what at first appears to be a simple task turns out to be anything but, and Quentin comes face to face with the unthinkable—a threat that could annihilate the community once and for all.
You can win a free copy of Othella! Like… who doesn’t love free stuff? Free books? Really good free books?! It’s going on until the 25th.
I gave Othella a no-bullshit 4.5 star review over at Caps Lock Thinks earlier this month! Go on and check it out – you won’t be sorry.
Therin Knite is a 22-year-old recent college graduate who occasionally writes speculative fiction and has the odd delusion of literary stardom. Knite lives in a humble little place known as the Middle of Nowhere, VA, where she spends most of her days reading books and writing what may possibly qualify as books.
Knite is a graduate of the College of William and Mary and holds a BBA in Finance and English. In August 2014, Knite will begin work as an underwriting analyst at a large insurance company, where she intends to stay for the foreseeable future.
Knite, who’s been writing seriously for seven years, is an avid book reviewer, blogger, and the sort of person who spends far too much time imagining epic sci-fi battles in her head. Knite intends to publish 3 to 4 novels per year, ever year, until she runs out of ideas…which is highly unlikely, so she’ll probably be writing forever.
Finally, Therin Knite has a simple writing philosophy you may want to know before you pick up one of her books:
“50% Dark, 50% Snark”
Knite is everywhere on the interwebs. If you’re there, more likely than not, Knite is there. Check it:
Also? Y’all didn’t think I’d forget what a bad ass INDIE author Knite is, did ya?
