Middle Grade Monday: The Ruins of Noe!

Yes, I’m blogging about my own book today, darnit! 🙂

I figured it was appropriate since today is the first day of my Imaginary Worlds Fall Tour in conjunction with the release of The Ruins of Noe. The book was actually published in May, but I had to postpone the tour for scheduling reasons.

In The Ruins of Noe, Brigitta’s adventures continue when she and her High Priestess travel to the old faerie ruins in the Valley of Noe, expecting to find them deserted. The Ancients had brought all the faeries north after the Great World Cry and placed them in the protected realm, after all. But when Brigitta and Ondelle arrive, they discover two warring factions of oppressed faeries they had never been told about. After Ondelle is captured, Brigitta must figure out who she can trust, so she can figure out a way to save her high priestess and get back home.

There are some reviews on GoodReads if you want to check them out.

My tour (yay) revolves around several school visits, a writer’s conference, and a book festival. I only have one public reading, though, and it’s at Kepler’s in Menlo Park, CA. So, if you live in the Bay Area, holy cow, that would be awesome to meet you.

I am so, so, so in love with this store and its staff. And I haven’t even met them yet. This store was SAVED by its community when it was about to go out of business. The community raised the money to save it and made commitments to shop there regularly.

Have a great week!



  1. No worries about tooting your own horn 🙂 Your world sounds really interesting.

      Thanks! Yes, some writer’s don’t like “selling themselves,” but it’s a necessary part of being a writer.

    I totally don’t blame you, Danika, for blogging about your own book. I mean, why not? Sounds fascinating. And Yay for those wonderful people in Menlo Park, CA who saved their indie bookstore! Sorry I live a little too far away to join you. 🙂

    If writing is a big part of your life, so of course you are entitled to write about your work, Danika! Your blog is most intriguing and I will be reading your books. After all, I do love the fairies! ^__^

  6. This book sounds fabulous! I love the cover! Wishing you much success! I wish I was visiting my brother-in-law in Menlo Park so I could attend the reading! Loved this post. 🙂

    Thanks Esther and Stephanie! Enjoying my tour so far. Although, staying up a bit too late each night might take it’s toll…

    We are looking forward to your visit with our 9, 10,and 11 year olds at Wingra School in Madison, Wisconsin in a couple weeks. What would you like them to know about you and your craft before you come?
