About the event
Plenty is excited to welcome author Kristen Long, author of Thief of Sorrows. Kristen will be signing copies of The first book in her series, which released in 2023, and she has also chosen our shop to REVEAL THE COVER of her upcoming release, the second in the series, Champion of Sorrows.
She'll have some Advanced Reader Copies as giveaways to a few lucky guests, too.
We are so excited! ABOUT THE BOOK: Thief of Sorrows is a genderbend Robin Hood retelling with a very morally grey female lead who not only steals from the rich and corrupt, she kills them too. It is the first of an eight-part new adult, romantasy series with book 2, Champion of Sorrows, set to release on 2/27/2024. If you were to look for it on the shelf, it would sit right between Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas and Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kristen began her career as a writer at the age of eighteen. Thief of Sorrows was the first novel she had ever considered putting onto paper. It will always hold a special place in her heart along with all of the characters. One in particular. Music is her biggest source of inspiration when it comes to writing. The Star Wars (mainly episodes I and III) and Lord of the Rings scores sit at the top of her Spotify playlist.
Fantasy romance and epic fantasy are her two favorite genres to write. However, she does dabble in vampire lore as well. She loves creating characters and worlds that live in her readers’ hearts and become a part of their lives. It’s her goal, with any book she writes, to leave a lasting impression on her readers. To remind them that they are not alone.
She is a Tennessee native and grew up in a small town just outside of Chattanooga. Reading has always been her favorite past time with Sarah J. Maas, Brigid Kemmerer, Leigh Bardugo, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charlotte Bronte as some of her favorite authors. Her favorite thing to do besides reading is spending time with her amazing family, eating Cheezits, watching Below Deck with her mom, and tanning. She also works as an Emergency Room nurse. It is Kristen’s dream to leave her stethoscope behind one day and become a writer full-time.
