L.J. Smith, The Vampire Diaries author, loves my YA debut!

I have been sitting on this news for far too long...you all know The Vampire Diaries, right? Famous books & TV show? 

Well, the fabulous author LJ Smith, #1 New York Times bestseller, has read my teen debut BANISH and cover quoted it! I'm beyond excited!!!!

This is what she had to say in its entirety (final cover reveal this week!): 

BANISH more than fulfilled my highest expectations. 
From the moment I read the first page, I was up all night until I got to the end. This is not a book to pick up if you don’t intend to finish it in one reading. Nicola Marsh has done a masterful job at creating a supernatural thriller for teens. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns, and delightful ironies. Protagonist Alyssa is a sympathetic and spunky role model, and her journey from skeptic to soul retriever is riveting. 
Overall rating ten out of ten. 
I absolutely love the book and can’t wait for the next Nicola Marsh novel!

I'm absolutely stoked!

The cover is gorgeous too and I can't wait to reveal this week.
