We interrupt this Market Monday to bring you this gorgeous new Stephanie Hans cover.  Cover to what you may ask?  To The Girl Who Would Be King, a YA(ish) novel by none other than blogger, podcaster, and Womanthology contributor, Kelly Thompson! The story:

Separated by thousands of miles, two young women are about to realize their extraordinary powers which will bind their lives together in ways they can’t begin to understand.
Protecting others. Maintaining order. Being good. These are all important things for Bonnie Braverman, even if she doesn’t understand why. Confined to a group home since she survived the car accident that killed both her parents, Bonnie has lived her life until now in self-imposed isolation and silence; but when an opportunity presents itself to help another girl in need, Bonnie has to decide whether to actually use the power she has long suspected she has. Power that frightens her.
Across the country, Lola LeFever is inheriting her own power by sending her mother over a cliff…literally. For Lola the only thing that matters is power; getting it, taking it, and eliminating anyone who would get in the way of her pursuit of it. With her mother dead and nothing to hold her back from the world any longer, Lola sets off to test her own powers on anyone unfortunate enough to cross her. And Lola’s not afraid of anything.
One girl driven to rescue, save, and heal; the other driven to punish, destroy, and kill.
And now they’re about to meet.

Kelly Thompson has been working on this novel for the better part of five years, and has even gotten interest from some of the major prose publishers, but they were ultimately scared away by the story’s violence and because they didn’t think it was “YA enough”.  Did Kelly give up?
No!  She’s taken to Kickstarter to drum up printing costs and whatnot to publish it herself!  And she’s got both digital and print incentives, plus art prizes by none other than Ross Campbell!  Check out the sample chapters on her blog, and if you like what you read, why not kick some dollars her way?  It’s only been up a few hours and is already 35% funded, help her round the track!
