THE WING COLLECTOR

When a pair of faerie wings fetch big bucks online, 17-yo Lila Kincade realizes her kind aren’t just oppressed; they’re hunted.

Due to prejudice and hostility by humans, half-human/half-faerie Lila lives in a world where faeries are required to register with the government and bind their wings in order to look like everyone else.
Lila is haunted by repetitive dreams involving a shack in the woods, and when photos of dismembered wings appear in her school locker, she soon realizes that she is the killer’s prime target. As faerie corpses pile up around her, Lila embarks on a mission to save her race from extinction. She must figure out who she can trust and stop the killer before she—and all faeries— are obliterated forever.

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

A note from Kristi:

Thanks so much for hosting me on this leg of the YA Scavenger Hunt! For my bonus material, here is a prequel scene that leads right into the opening scene of THE WING COLLECTOR.

Friday, September 8th

5am 

I woke to the sound of my phone alarm, my heart pounding in my chest. A mixture of excitement and nervousness filled me. While in the shower, I decided my plan. I’d already asked Mom to borrow the car for the day, telling her I was going to school early for help with algebra and that I had to drive Kate to an appointment after school. I felt a little guilt about lying to them, but they wouldn’t have understood how important today was for me.

Today, I would be like a normal human girl meeting her boyfriend alone for the first time.

Technically, he wasn’t my boyfriend yet but I knew that would change after this morning. He would finally feel the same way about me that I’d been feeling about him.

I thought back to the note as I shampooed my hair. I had no idea what “things” he thought we would be doing, but I was only going to kiss him and that’s it. It would be my first kiss after all, so I wanted it to be memorable. That way, there wouldn’t be any chance of his touching my bindings, plus, he’d realize I wasn’t easy like some of the girls I’d heard he’d been with before me. I would be a challenge for him, and I’d have time to have my wings removed before things progressed further. By the time I was wingless, he’d be downright in love with me.

The shower steam filled the bathroom as I stepped out and grabbed the towel. I wiped the fog from the mirror and caught a glimpse of the water dripping from my yellow wings. They looked bright and almost perky. A pang of sadness pierced me. In a different world, I might have admitted they weren’t completely hideous. But it was what it was. The world wasn’t going to change, so I would. I grabbed my binding kit and got to work.

I was too nervous to eat, so I forced down some orange juice and glanced at my phone. 5:30a. I was thirty minutes away from heaven.

Kate would still be sleeping so I pulled out my phone to send her a quick text she’d see when she woke up. There was already a text from her from 2:00am the night before:

Can’t sleep worrying about you. I really wish u wouldn’t go today, but I know u will, so be safe. Talk to you b4 school.

Another text had followed at 2:01a:

Remember, don’t get carried away. You aren’t wingless yet. Love u.

I couldn’t wait to tell her all about the kiss at our lockers. Then she would see she had nothing to worry about. I texted back:

I’ll be fine. If I’m a little late, don’t worry.

It means he loves kissing me more than all those other skanks.

The streets were mostly quiet as I navigated Mom’s car down the streets toward Epping Forest. A light mist hung in the grey air as I turned onto Bury Road, though the sun was just about to peek over the horizon. I turned down another road and parked in the empty lot, trying to calm my racing heart. Maybe he had parked in a different lot. My wings started to beat erratically against the bindings—almost in a panic. A sliver of fear went through me but I ignored it. Everything was fine. Once I found Matt, I was sure my nerves would ease.

I walked to the forest’s edge and took a deep breath. Birds chirped in the trees and water gurgled from one of the nearby streams. I inhaled the earthy scent of the trees and steadied myself. There was no turning back.

I stepped into the woods.

Synopsis:

Companion to the New York Times bestselling and award-winning novel, Forget Tomorrow. 

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made ten years earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency.

No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be.

But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself.

Today is the release day of BEFORE TOMORROW, aka Logan’s novella, and I couldn’t be any more thrilled! Guys, I love this book so much. Logan is one of my favorite characters from the Forget Tomorrow series, and it was an utter joy to hang out in his mind for a little while!

Synopsis: In a world where all seventeen-year-olds receive a memory from their future selves, Logan Russell’s vision is exactly as he expects — and exactly not. He sees himself achieving his greatest wish of becoming a gold-star swimmer, but strangely enough, the vision also shows him locking eyes with a girl from his past, Callie Stone, and experiencing an overwhelming sense of love and belonging. 

Logan’s not sure what the memory means, but soon enough, he learns that his old friend Callie is in trouble. She’s received an atypical memory, one where she commits a crime in the future. According to the law, she must be imprisoned, even though she’s done nothing wrong. Now, Logan must decide if he’ll give up his future as a gold-star swimmer and rescue the literal girl of his dreams. All he’ll have to do is defy Fate. 

And you know what the best part is? For the time being, this novella is utterly and absolutely FREE! So what are you waiting for? Download your copy now!

Synopsis:

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision-a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo-a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all-Callie, herself.

The inspiration for Forget Tomorrow

teaser sale green leaf

The inspiration for the FORGET TOMORROW series came from two things, perhaps the two cornerstones of my life: my deep, unconditional love for my sister (and later on, my children) and my deep, unconditional desire to be a writer.

I have a sister who is twelve years younger than me, and I have always felt an extremely close bond with her. This fierce protectiveness was a precursor to the feeling I would have with my own children. Before I even stumbled onto the premise of this series, I knew I wanted to write my next story about the deep, maternalistic love that a girl can have for her much younger sister — and the lengths to which she would go to protect that sister.

I always tease my sister, Lana, that FORGET TOMORROW is my favorite book because I get to kill her in it. This isn’t true for a couple reasons. First, FORGET TOMORROW isn’t necessarily my favorite book, although I do consider it the book of my heart. Second, this book isn’t actually about how much I want to kill my sister; rather, it is about how much I love her. This is the reason FORGET TOMORROW is dedicated to her.

A short while after I decided to write a book about sisters, I was bemoaning my publishing fate to an editor friend. I was on submission to agents with my second manuscript, I had received over a hundred rejections, and I had been working seriously on my craft for years. It felt like I was never going to achieve my dream — that elusive book contract — and I was out of patience.

“I wish I had a crystal ball,” my friend said. “Then I could tell you that five years from now, you would be published, and you wouldn’t waste so much time worrying about it.”

This quote led me to the world of my series. A few days later, during an afternoon nap with my toddler son, as I was drifting in and out of sleep, I contemplated my friend’s words. “Wouldn’t it be great,” I thought to myself, “if I could send a memory back to my younger self? I could see that I was a successful published author and that my hard work and heartache were worth it.” My very next thought was: “Hey! That would make a cool premise for a book!”

I then asked myself: what would be the worst memory a heroine like mine could receive, a heroine whose main goal in life is to protect her little sister? That answer was also clear and immediate. The worse memory she could receive was one where she saw her future self killing her little sister.

Presto, FORGET TOMORROW was born.

* Incidentally, this quote is also the inspiration for “Crystal Ball,” the song that Grammy-nominated songwriter David Elliot Johnson and Kimberly Bell wrote for FORGET TOMORROW. This is one of Entangled Music’s first released songs, and it is absolutely stunning. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can check out a sample here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0qpJyUltrs

** For a limited time only, FORGET TOMORROW is on sale for a mere 99 pennies! And guess what? If you buy the edition with audio/video, you also get the “Crystal Ball” song + one other song for free. This is a steal! Grab it now before the sale ends!
