Erin is one of our wonderful local authors and I’ve been so lucky to get to meet her on many occasions in the past year. I was at her launch for Ever the Hunted last year and finally got to reading it this summer. It was so good! I am so excited to get my hands on book two, Ever the Brave, and that cover!! We’re only two weeks out from the launch of Ever the Brave, is it on your TBR?
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Be sure to check out their blog and share the upcoming books your excited about with us each Wednesday!
Ever the Brave by Erin Summerill
Ever the Divided. Ever the Feared. Ever the Brave.
After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately, saving the King has created a tether between them she cannot sever, no matter how much she’d like to, and now he’s insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta’s power for evil designs. If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life—as well as her country—may be lost.
The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart.

8 Things About Me
- I own more pairs of shoes than *Insert name of small country.
- Miracles happen daily. I believe this with all my kidney.
- I have a love/hate relationship with CrossFit.

- Coke Zero and Hot Tamales are my two favorite food groups.
- If I’m not writing a book, I’m shooting a bride. (summerillphotography.com)
- Hugs are as essential as shoes, food, and toilet paper.
- I tend to speak before I think.
After completing a B.A. in English, I had aspirations to knock out the next great American novel. Mom always taught me to dream big. Well writing proved tougher than I first thought. Tougher than chewing on a two-year-old gummi-worm that’s been hiding under a car seat. Plans changed. I didn’t write the next great American novel. No, I grabbed a Nikon and became a professional wedding photographer. During the day I posed brides and in the evenings I put scenes into action. Word by word. Manuscript by manuscript. I kept on writing.
The scenic detour of photography took me across the United States and even over to Australia and New Zealand, where I picked up world-building inspiration. After seven years, eight failed manuscripts, and a life-altering kidney donation experience, I finally had the vision to draft my debut young adult fantasy, EVER THE HUNTED.
When I’m not writing or shooting, I’m chasing my 4 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 4 chickens around the state of Utah. This is probably why I’m seriously addicted to Coke Zero and Hot Tamales.
