Sweet Success for Kendra Merritt

By; Darby Karchut

Kendra Merritt, author of the MARK OF THE LEAST series (YA fantasy) is pleased as punch to announce the release of the first book in her new adult fantasy series: MISHAP’S HEROES. Book #1, MAGIC AND MISRULE, released April 2nd from Blue Fyre Press.

Mishap's Heroes, Magic and Misrule


They’re only badass by accident…

Vola might be new to this whole adventuring thing, but she’s pretty sure this isn’t how you’re supposed to save the day. No one at her academy wanted an orc as a paladin, so they’ve sent her to the back end of a swamp, hoping she’ll never find a quest good enough to earn her shield. Well, screw that. Vola’s got divine help, and even a laughingstock of a goddess can do some righteous smiting.

Armed with a new mission to find some missing orphans, Vola just needs a team to help her track them down. Now she’s stuck with a hyperactive halfling, a klutzy spell caster, and a cloaked mystery who’s a little too good with their knives. Can a half-orc paladin keep her new party alive in a swamp that’s determined to eat them, or are all the naysayers right and Orcs really can’t be heroes?  Copies may be purchased through Amazon.

Books have been Kendra’s escape for as long as she can remember. She used to hide fantasy novels behind her government textbook in high school, and she wrote most of her first novel during a semester of college algebra.

Older and wiser now (but just as nerdy) she’s the author of the Mark of the Least series and the Mishap’s Heroes series. If she’s not writing, she’s reading, and if she’s not reading, she’s playing video games.

She lives in Denver with her very tall husband, their book loving progeny, and a lazy black monster masquerading as a service dog. KM Merritt is the pen name for her adult fantasy. Be sure to visit the author on her website and follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

Congratulations to Kendra Merritt on the release of her YA fantasy, Skin Deep, releasing from Blue Frye Press April 1, 2019.

Skin Deep (A Mark of the Least Novel) by [Merritt, Kendra]

Cursed for a youthful accident which maimed a young woman, Léon Beauregard roams his mountain as a bear, clinging to the scraps of his humanity. But when he comes across an enchanter scarred from an accident she doesn’t remember, she promises to free him.

As the graceful young woman studies his curse, Léon begins to realize she is much more than just a passing enchanter. She’s the one he’s falling in love with. And she is the one whose life he ruined. When bodies show up mauled by a large animal, Léon has more to hide and everything to lose if Anwen ever learns the truth about the monster inside him.
