The big day has finally arrived, and Imogen, Iggy and the bakers head to the Fire Kingdom for Hank and Shaday’s wedding. Imogen is totally fine with it—or so she keeps telling herself.

Even the murder of a famous wedding guest can’t stop the impending nuptials. So when Imogen’s repressed feelings magically ruin her baking and she’s banned from the kitchen, she sets herself to finding the killer.

Her search leads her through the desert kingdom’s bustling marketplaces and the maze-like raid, to discover underground movements, shady characters, and more secrets about the people around her than she thought possible. Could the killer be the clever journalist or the rebellious palace maid? Perhaps it’s a member of the royal family.

With the Fire Kingdom’s people churning for change, a mysterious artifact missing from the museum, and a dastardly plot brewing, Imogen begins to feel the heat. When Horace contacts her and makes her a tempting offer, she struggles to choose between him and her new friends.

Imogen’s choice will have enormous consequences over a deadly plot that threatens the people she loves. Will she stop a killer and find a happy ending in the process? Or will an ancient legend come to life and destroy them all?

Interview with Erin Johnson
1. What is your favorite part of this book and why?
I love the setting! It’s Morocco-esque and I would love to visit there someday.

2. If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
I think I’d hang out with Iggy-he’d make me laugh and be brutally honest. We’d probably bake some cookies and explore the Fire Kingdom. Oh, and practice some magic.


3. If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
Harry Potter. It’s brilliant and loved by so many, including me.

4. Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
Mostly my imagination, though many are inspired looks-wise by celebrities. And a lot of me and my sister go into Imogen and Maple.


5. What made you want to become a writer?

I think I always just loved to read or be read to. When I was four I had this Dr. Seuss book, “My Book About Me,” where you answered a ton of questions about yourself. And in it I wrote that I wanted to be an author (author was spelled incorrectly). So pretty much since I can remember it’s what I’ve wanted to do. So I’m very excited to finally be doing it! ☺

Woven by Bree Moore

Author: Bree Moore

Narrators: Rebecca McKernan

Length: 13 hours 49 minutes

Publisher: Books by Bree, LLC

Released: Mar. 28, 2018

Genre: Epic Fantasy


For 30 years, Elaina has sat in her tower, fingers caught in an eternal dance, cursed to weave the tapestry of life on her loom. Bound by an enchanted mirror whose magic shows her the distant lives of the people of Camelot, she must forever watch a land which remains ever beyond her reach. Elaina despairs that she will ever experience more than just the shadows of life, until one day, a face appears in the mirror that will change her life, and possibly her fate, forever.

Guinevere is losing her mind. When a severe injury to her head nearly kills her and awakens alternate personalities suppressed from her past, Guinevere learns that one of them is plotting with a knight of the round table to murder King Arthur and take control of Camelot. In the midst of war, Guinevere fights to save both her own life and the man she loves, each day coming closer to succumbing to the violent personalities within her.

Inspired by Arthurian legend and Lord Alfred Tennyson’s ballad, "The Lady of Shalott", Woven spins a tale of two women who must risk everything to save those they love most into an epic of enchantment, love, and madness.





Bree Moore has been writing fantasy since the fourth grade. She lives in Ogden, is wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of four children. She writes fantasy novels between doling out cheerios and folding laundry. In real-life, Bree works as a birth doula, attending women in pregnancy and labor, which is huge inspiration for her writing. Bree loves shopping for groceries like other women like shopping for shoes (no, seriously), movies that make her cry, and Celtic music. She likes both her chocolate and her novels dark.

"Woven" is Bree's first published novel, the start of what she intends to be an epic writing career.

Narrator Bio

Born in the eighties with her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice-over work. HEr first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearing her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants. Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good - albeit sometimes dubious - ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.

Notes from Bree Moore:
  • “The Lady of Shalott” by Loreena Mckennit - This song inspired “Woven”. My mom challenged me to write a scene based on the song, and a book was born! The song is based on a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson by the same name.
  • “In my Arms” by Plumb - This song always makes me think of my main character and how she must have felt holding her baby for the first time. It’s so sweet and sad.
  • “Never saw Blue” sung by Hayley Westenra - I probably listened to this song a thousand times while writing Woven. Its message of hope fit the theme of Woven perfectly. It even inspired the blue jay that “talks” to Elaina and keeps her company in the tower.

I honestly have never cared much for books about King Author but decided to give this book a shot. I was actually quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The book is actually a dual story book that in the end meets up. First of all the book is written from Guinevere's perspective. So far I have never read or even heard of a book from her perspective.

Elaina has been held captive in the Tower for 30 years. Her life has been to weave a tapestry of life. The  tapestry is in control of her, it makes her weave for days and nights on end at times without letting her stop to eat or drink even. When she awoke in the Tower on that first day she was told she could not look out the window or at any man that may come along or she would die. All she has to see life moving on outside of her room is a Enchanted Mirror. One day the face of a man shows u in the mirror that will change her life forever.

Guinevere has an accident and gets a bad head injury after she awakes she finds she has multiple personalities. One of the personalities is a young abused girl the other is a grown woman with an agenda. She is making plans Sir Lancelot to kill King Arthur. Guinevere must try to save him.

This is where the 2 stories start to meld together.

Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never been good at keeping secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious adoptive father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift.

A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right.

In Sleep State Interrupt, a giant media corporation has taken over the Internet, created an addictive virtual reality called BetterWorld, and controls nearly all information. Politicians do their bidding and a brainwashed humanity serves a privileged few.

Waylee Freid, an unemployed Baltimore journalist with ever-worsening bipolar disorder, is the only hope for a brighter future. She and her countercultural friends bust a notorious teenage hacker out of jail and sneak into a closed presidential fundraiser at the Smithsonian castle, where they hope to record incriminating admissions that will wake up the world. Hunted by Homeland Security, Waylee and her friends must reach a sufficient audience by broadcasting their video during the Super Bowl. But to do so, they'll have to break into one of the most secure facilities ever built.
