About The Bone Knife

Title: The Bone Knife  

Author: Intisar Khanani  

Genre: YA Fantasy, Short Story  

Blurb: Rae knows how to look out for family. Born with a deformed foot, she feigns indifference to the pity and insults that come her way. Wary of all things beautiful, Rae instantly distrusts their latest visitor: an appallingly attractive faerie. Further, his presence imperils the secret her sister guards. But when the local townspeople show up demanding his blood, Rae must find a way to protect both her sister's secret and their guest. Even if that means risking herself.

 

 

Author Bio

Intisar Khanani grew up a nomad and world traveler. Born in Wisconsin, she has lived in five different states as well as in Jeddah on the coast of the Red Sea. She first remembers seeing snow on a wintry street in Zurich, Switzerland, and vaguely recollects having breakfast with the orangutans at the Singapore Zoo when she was five. She currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband and two young daughters. Until recently, Intisar wrote grants and developed projects to address community health with the Cincinnati Health Department, which was as close as she could get to saving the world. Now she focuses her time on her two passions: raising her family and writing fantasy. Her approach to writing reflects her lifelong love for stories from different cultures. Her next project is a companion trilogy to her debut novel Thorn, with Rae as her new heroine.

    1. I wish it was ready! This is more like a teaser--and an apology for folks who are looking for the next book already! It's been a bit of rough going for me, and will probably come out a bit later in 2013 than anticipated. I hope you enjoy The Bone Knife. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Hi Cordelia! I hope you get a chance to check it out; I'd love to hear your thoughts. And I'm so glad you like the cover--I decided to steer clear of a cover model this time and see how things went. I never realized how hard designing a book cover can be till I starting working with graphic designers on my own. :)

      Best,
      Intisar
