Notes From Melissa
Check out my BEA Recap Post:)
Bea was an amazing experience as usual…but as with any conference of this magnitude…there were both positives and negatives! I’ve broken it down and given you my honest thoughts and impressions now that I’ve had a week to mull things over!

For Review Consideration:
Title: Gathering Water
Author: Regan Claire
Release Date: February 1st 2014
Della Doe Deare isn’t like most people. Most people begin their life on the day they enter the world; the day they’re born. Della, well, hers began on the day she turned eighteen. After all, it was the day she first heard her real name, and that of her mothers. With nothing but a couple of duffel bags and a folder full of questions, she travels home to coastal North Carolina to claim the house she inherited from a grandmother she never knew. She has two goals: discover why her mother ran away from home all those years ago, and avoid the family that had left her to rot in an inept foster care system. Hard to do when the family she’s been trying to avoid is dragging her into an unimaginable world… a world on the brink of war, and both sides want her dead. All Della ever wanted was to know who she was, but the journey to self-discovery might just lead to her destruction.
