Today I am so excited to have Liz Kerin on the blog to talk about her debut fantasy novel The Phantom Forest, which will be published by Inkshares on July 16, 2019! Keep reading to learn about how The Phantom Forest began as a 12-year old’s short story, Liz’s path to publication, and about our combined love of the Buffyverse.
