Welcome to Week Five of Sweet Talk with the Sweet Sixteens! To see more details about Sweet Talk as well as previous posts, see the introduction post. Thanks to Charlene (Bookish Whimsy), for designing the banner and button for Sweet Talk.

Today, I'm featuring the authors and books publishing during the week of February 2nd!

The Questions:

1. Describe your debut novel in sixteen words.
2. Pitch your book! For fans of _____, _____ meets _____, etc.
3. What are you working on now – is it related to your debut novel?

The Authors:

Sarah Ahiers, Author of Assassin's Heart

1. A teen assassin sets out on a path of vengeance for her murdered family.

2. The Godfather meets Romeo & Juliet.

3. I've just finished the draft to the sequel/companion to ASSASSIN'S HEART and while my editor is reading I'm working on a MG fantasy.

Jeff Garvin, Author of Symptoms of Being Human

1. Riley’s secret blog about being gender fluid goes viral and threatens Riley’s anonymity.

2. SYMPTOMS OF BEING HUMAN is a good read for fans of PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and readers who like offbeat narrative voices.

3. I’m working on an existential adventure romance set in Paris. It’s contemporary YA, but not directly related to SYMPTOMS OF BEING HUMAN.
