Blog Tour: Jennifer Estep Guest Post

Gah, sorry for the later post; scheduling and I have relationship issues. And I just got home from Otakon, which was AMAZING. So much so that I'm suffering from post-Otakon depression right now. SO SDP(U()#*$RHOSDFH AMAZING. Cosplaying, raving, eating, sleeping in weird positions... I miss it, sob. I'll post about it sometime when I get some pictures from my friend. :3

Anyways, on behalf of The {Teen} Book Scene TOUCH OF FROST tour, I present JENNIFER ESTEP to give you an inside peek on her daily life. First, here's the official version:

Jennifer Estep writes the Mythos Academy young adult urban fantasy series for Kensington. The books focus on Gwen Frost, a 17-year-old Gypsy girl who has the gift of psychometry, or the ability to know an object’s history just by touching it. After a serious freakout with her magic, Gwen is shipped off to Mythos Academy, a school for the descendants of ancient warriors like Spartans, Valkyries, Amazons, and more.

Touch of Frost, the first book in the series, was published on July 26. First Frost, a prequel e-story to the series, is available now as a 99-cent download. Kiss of Frost, the second book, will hit shelves on Nov. 29. Visit for excerpts and more information.

Greetings and salutations! First of all, I want to thank Jenn for having me on the blog today. Thanks so much, Jenn!

So today, Jenn asked me to talk about some of the things that I do when I’m not writing. With four books out this year, along with some short stories, it seems like I’m always writing these days or working on revisions or blogging or doing the thousand other things that authors do. LOL. But I do make time to relax in between my various book projects. So here are a few things that I do on my down time when I’m not writing:

Spending time with my family and friends: I love hanging out with my family and friends, whether we’re going out to eat, watching a movie, doing a little shopping, or just relaxing at home.

Watching TV: I watch waaay too much TV. Some of my favorite programs this summer are Burn Notice, White Collar, Covert Affairs, Leverage, The Closer … Did I mention that I watch waaay too much TV? LOL. 

Action movies: I love a good action movie, and I really like summer because of all the fun movies in theaters. This summer has been really great for superheroes, with movies like Thor, Green Lantern, and Captain America coming out in the past few months.


Playing Dungeons & Dragons: Yes, I’m a total geek, but I like to play D&D-type games. It’s fun to create your own character, take her through an adventure, watch her powers grow, and hopefully get some cool treasure at the end. If only all that gold were real …

Cooking: I have a serious sweet tooth, and I like trying out new recipes, especially for desserts. I like everything about cooking – except cleaning up and washing the dishes after the fact.

Reading: I love to read, and it always seems like I have about twenty books stacked up waiting for me in my to-be-read pile. I wish I had more time to read.

So there you have it. Some of the things that I do when I’m not writing.

What about you guys? What are some of your favorite books, movies, TV shows, and hobbies?



My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad­emy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowli­est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spar­tan guy in school, also hap­pens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jas­mine Ash­ton was mur­dered in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties. Then, some­one stole the Bowl of Tears, a mag­i­cal arti­fact that can be used to bring about the sec­ond Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m deter­mined to find out who killed Jas­mine and why – espe­cially since I should have been the one who died…
