About Me

My Photo
I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I think I've drunk so much Land of Enchantment water that some of that ancient magic got into my blood and now spurts out my pencil--I mean ergonomic keyboard. I adore Louisiana, Paris, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Egypt, and anything old and musty with a secret story to tell. I make way too many cookies when I'm writing or revising a new book - and I've got the best book trailers in the universe - for reals! Check them out here: www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com.

My very own FORBIDDEN Cover Reveal!!!

After waiting so long to see this gorgeous, epic Young Adult novel I've been working on forever actually become a real book - I'm thrilled to share the STUNNING cover from Harpercollins! 

I'm practically dying of shock (as well as giddy with glee) that this book is finally going to hit bookshelves in a few months. FORBIDDEN has been in the making for YEARS – don’t ask how many—I don’t want anyone fainting out there! 
 
I’ve been wondering/speculating/daydreaming about what Harpercollins would do for the cover since it’s been crazy difficult for my editor and I to come up with jacket synopsis copy. The story is about the roots of belly dance in the ancient world of women, goddess temples, tribal warfare, betrothals, murder, blackmail . . . but the fantastic team at Harper came up with a gorgeous cover that hints at the danger and romance with a splash of an exotic feel. The model is beautiful and I adore all the red and gold!

Thank you Harpercollins, my editor Karen, the photographers, and the entire art and editorial team!


SYNOPSIS:
In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart.

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying.
 
With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together. 

A long-time friend of mine, Justin Cook, who got his Grad degree in Film at Columbia in NYC helped me create this cover *just* for the Cover Reveal today. A full book trailer will come this Fall. So this gives you a hint of the flavor, setting, and mystery of the book. Enjoy.



Young Adult Books Central is featuring the Cover Reveal today as well as Cuddlebuggery Book Blog.

Tomorrow I'll be on YA Series Insiders and on Sunday, I'll be at Mundie Moms, Page Turners, The Story Siren, and Adventures in YA Publishing with *exclusive* content and a *unique* Huge Giveaway on every single blog. Yep, I'm giving away a ton of goodies. Signed books, ARCs, veils, jewelry, and Book Club Cards. 

Young Adult Books Central:
Signed copies of GRAVE MERCY and DARK TRIUMPH
And jewelry/veil, ARC, and swag.

Cuddlebuggery Book Blog:
Signed copies of Alyson Noel's FATED, ECHO, MYSTIC, and HORIZON, the SOUL SEEKERS quartet
And jewelry/veil, ARC, and swag.

Please tell me what you think of the trailer and cover in the comments! And be sure to head to the links to enter the Giveaways! 

SEVEN blogs, SEVEN *Big Winners*, and 70 Book Club winners over the next 2-3 weeks! 



TADA!!! I love the *movement* and the tension and breathlessness as well as the vibrant reds and gold. The full-wrap jacket is going to knock your socks off. It's almost finished and it took my breath away!



Happy Sigh,
Kimberley

Teaser Tuesday Tagline!

While you're waiting for the highly anticipated Cover Reveal of FORBIDDEN coming THIS THURSDAY, February 13th at YA BOOKS CENTRAL, here is the tagline for FORBIDDEN. 

It was a long and scary process - finally decided on after much personal brainstorming, writer friend brainstorming, and in-house Harpercollins brainstorming! I came *this* close to thinking it was going to be half-baked. Whew!

It's perfect and strong! 

"So much is at risk when everything is . . . FORBIDDEN"


Why yes, the RED color is a hint! Ooh, la, la!

And I love this! 

Warmly,
Kimberley

PARIS CRAVINGS is here!!! A delicious, gorgeous romance novel set in Paris!

While you're waiting for November 4th to read FORBIDDEN, the launch of my Young Adult trilogy with Harpercollins (STUNNING cover has arrived and there will be a *cover reveal* in two weeks!) read my brand new contemporary romance set in Paris--it's got pastries and romance and kissing! 

I love the cover by Claudia at www.phatpuppyart.com and Stephanie Herrera did the fonts and sparklies. She also did a fabulous back cover, too. Scroll down to see and enter the big giveaway! I'm giving away lots of books and bookmarks. There are about 35 bloggers doing my Cover Reveal and Launch today! Thank you to everyone so much!



 About PARIS CRAVINGS: 

Can life really turn on a dime—
a missed bus— 
or a stuck pastry shop door?
 

Chloe Dillard’s life has always been complicated. She has a mother who is a neurotic romance novelist and a boyfriend who’s been pressuring her to go all the way. After The Worst Night of Her Life Chloe escapes on a trip to the swoon-worthy city of Paris where she becomes stranded after an accident with high heels and a pastry box.

Saved by a French boy with chocolate-brown eyes, Chloe begins to wonder if being lost in Paris is the chance of a lifetime. But as attracted as she is to the gorgeous and oh-so-kind La Patisserie shop boy—even he has a girlfriend.

The police are tracking her down, Mom’s having a nervous breakdown when she goes missing, and Chloe just wants to have her dream of a happily-ever-after.

What’s a girl to do in the most romantic city in the world? 


About Kimberley Montpetit: 
Kimberley once spent all her souvenir money at the La Patisserie shops when she was in Paris—on the arm of her adorable husband. The author grew up in San Francisco, another swoon-worthy city, loves all things Parisian and chocolate and lives in a small town along the Rio Grande with her family.

Kimberley has won many awards for her work, including the Southwest Book Award, the Whitney Award, the Arizona/New Mexico Book Award, is a Crystal Kite Finalist (SCBWI) and included in the Bank Street College Best Books of the Year.

She once stayed in a haunted castle tower room at Borthwick Castle in Scotland, sailed on the Seine in Paris, walked the beaches of Normandy, eaten in numerous French cafes, ridden a camel in Petra, Jordan, sunbathed on Waikiki, shopped the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, and spent the night in an old Communist hotel in Bulgaria. 

She adores all baked goodies; brownies, éclairs, donuts, tarts, and pie, and makes a lot of chocolate chip cookies while revising.

Kimberley is, of course, hard at work on her next novel (s).

COVER REVEAL - ELEVATED by Elana Johnson!!!

***COVER REVEAL, COVER REVEAL, COVER REVEAL***

Brand New Young Adult Novel 
by Elana Johnson! 

Coming February 18, 2014!!!

Isn't this cover absolutely adorable? I love it! The premise is very fun, too. (I've read it already, too, and love it!)


About ELEVATED: The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she's been avoiding for five months. Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday. But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

2014 News and Giveaways - My YA Debut Year has begun!!!

It's a New Year! I love the sound of 2014 - even if it freaks me out to think it's already 2014! I remember the big anticipation to be alive for the Big Millenium 2000! And here we are, already 14 years beyond that. Weird! (Plus my birthday this year will be February 14, 2014 and I just like the sound of it - despite my age.)

I also can't believe that 2014 is my Young Adult Debut year! After writing for, um, 2-3 decades, and writing the first draft of FORBIDDEN in 2003 - after years of research, it's finally happening.

FORBIDDEN was originally called "Secret Rites of the Goddess" and has been through many configurations, drafts, and rewrites - what else is new? But the heart of the story remains the same: The ancient art of belly dance, goddess temples, tribal warfare, betrothals, murder, blackmail, family, faith, survival, and true love.

Isn't she stunning!


I'm not going to make this a long post this week since I'll be talking about the story of FORBIDDEN, my research, including a research trip a year ago in February to Jordan and Israel, over this coming year. And I'll post PICTURES!!!

Suffice it to say for now that FORBIDDEN is a story very dear to my heart, a story I continued to believe in despite all the rewriting and more rewriting, and rejections and selling two different times to two different publishers to finally land at Harpercollins in a superb deal with a marvelous editor. The second time it sold was for 10 times the original deal! Mind-boggling.

Here is the official announcement from more than two years ago! Whew, I've had to wait a long time for this book. (It was delayed from publishing in 2013 to 2014 due to personal and publisher circumstances.)

Children's: Young Adult
Kimberley Griffiths Little's GODDESS, pitched as "the YA Red Tent", to Harper Children's, in a significant deal, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, for publication in beginning in 2013, by Adams Literary (US).


Don't be fooled by the mention of Harper Children's, this is an upper Young Adult epic historical novel with some difficult, heart-wrenching scenes and will be published under Harpercollins, not HarperTeen, to capture the adult cross-over market as well. *big smile*

Here's the unofficial synopsis:

"FORBIDDEN is a sweepingly epic and sensuous novel, a story of peer pressure and cults set against the ancient art of belly dance, in which 16-year-old Jayden’s faith and character is tested to their limits, even death, as she watches her family and the world around her fall apart.

Betrothed to the tribal leader's son, Jayden is blackmailed over the murder of their beloved leader when he is found poisoned, all while hiding her forbidden love of Kadesh, a stranger from the secret frankincense lands.

The Goddess temples of Ashtoreth may be Jayden’s only escape, even though the allure of the sexual rites tempt the women of the desert to turn their back on everything they hold sacred.

Jayden must undertake a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself."


To celebrate this momentous year every single month of 2014 I'll be giving away Middle Eastern earrings, luscious belly dance scarves, and a YA novel of *your* choice!  Like the items in this picture! 



Yes, every single month during 2014 I'll give away a pair of gorgeous earrings, a beautiful scarf to make you feel like the luscious woman/girl you are, and a hardcover YA novel of your choice. Awesome, huh? I'm excited!

And if you don't want to miss any news as it happens for any of my books with Scholastic, Spellbound Books, or Harpercollins, please go here to sign up for my brand new newsletter launching in February! Sign-Up for Kimberley's Newsletter

Click here to *Add* FORBIDDEN to your Want-To-Read List on GOODREADS!

I promised this would be short . . . eek! Just leave a comment to enter the Giveaway! Easy-peasy. Extra entries for Newsletter Sign-ups and Goodreads Adds. Of course. Deadline to enter two weeks from today: February 3rd. Winner announced February 4th.

Warmly,
Kimberley
