#Giveaway: Exile for Dreamers (Stranje House, #2) by @katbaldwin @TorTeen

 
It’s 1814. Napoleon has escaped his imprisonment on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And at Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, five young ladies are secretly being trained for a world of spies, diplomacy, and war.

Tess Aubreyson can’t run far enough or fast enough to escape the prophetic dreams that haunt her. Dreams bring nothing but death and grief, and Tess refuses to accept that she may be destined for the same madness that destroyed her mother. Until her disturbing dreams become the only means of saving Lord Ravencross, the man she loves, and her fellow students at Stranje House. Tess’s old friend, the traitorous Lady Daneska, and Ghost, the ruthless leader of the Iron Crown, have returned to England, intent on paving the way for Napoleon’s invasion. Can the young ladies of Stranje House prevail once more? Or is England destined to fall into the hands of the power-mad dictator?





Award-winning author Kathleen Baldwin loves adventure in books and in real life. She taught rock climbing in the Rockies, survival camped in the desert, was stalked by a mountain lion, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, enjoyed way too many classes in college, fell in love at least a dozen times, and married her very own hero. They’ve raised four free-spirited adventurous children.

Awarded 2016 Spirit of Texas, A School for Unusual Girls , is her first historical romance for Young Adults. It is a Junior Library Guild selection. Publisher’s Lunch listed it in their 2015 Young Adult BookBuzz. Kansas State NEA Reading Circle gave it a starred review in their 2016 “Best of the Best” for High Schools. Scholastic licensed it for book fairs, and New York Times Book Review called it “enticing from the first sentence.”

Kathleen is also an avid reader and adores the wit and humor of Oscar Wilde, P.G. Wodehouse, and Jane Austen. Her eclectic reading interests range from Frank Herbert to Meg Cabot, and on to the delightfully imaginative tales of Diana Wynne Jones.









What piece of advice would you give to a new writer? 
Write-write often. Every day. Write until you develop a strong sure voice. Know who you are before you venture out into the publishing world. Don’t self-publish until you have truly learned the craft and tried submitting to traditional publishers first. 


Early Nights or Late Nights? 
Late Nights. I’m a hopeless nightowl. I envy early birds, they seem to get so much more done than late-nighters. But I can’t do it. I tried. I stay up way too late. I’ve been known to write all the way through the night till morning.Sigh.


What can we expect from you in the future?  ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
 I’m currently writing the 4thbook in the Stranje House series, but my publisher has asked for another book as well, a fantasy, and I’m working on that, too.
