I’m young adult author Estelle Laure

I wrote YA books This Raging Light and But Then I Came Back and this is where I invite you into my world. If you aren’t into that, you should probably turn back now. But if you are, you should know I’m as into reading and true crime as I am into writing and I am very, extremely into writing.

Also magic.

Always magic.

 If you want to know more, join me on Instagram for my world (you’re going to see animals, kids, and lots of books), on Twitter for articles and banter, and Facebook for everything else. I blog about random stuff sometimes. 

You can also sign up for my newsletter to join my killer book club The Joans of ARC and to know where I might be landing soon. The Joans of ARC is a monthly book club dedicated to women’s YA with an edge, so my newsletter will feature an interview, my thoughts, and I’ll answer questions from you. Plus, there will be a giveaway each month and I’ll share information I think you need.  

And here’s my promise to you: If you write me, I will write you back.

Make your own magic. 

xoxo, Estelle

But Then I Came Back by Estelle LaureWhat do you do when you wake up from a coma?

Go back to the way things were? Or start something new?

From the author of This Raging Light comes the story of Eden Jones, a 17-year-old girl who feels not only lost after her accident, but like she might have dragged something back from the near-afterlife with her. Unable to connect to family and friends, Eden becomes obsessed with the mysterious girl lying in a coma in the room next to hers at the hospital, Jasmine, who she recognizes from her time between life and death. Joe, Jasmine’s best friend, might have the answers Eden needs about why Jasmine and Eden are so tied together, and if not, he may be enough to bring Eden back to life.

Notes From the Well

Favorite thing : A.S. King

I’ve been moving. Again. This is my fourth house in as many years, and hopefully the last for a good long while since I bought it. Touching all my things is gross. That whole Marie Conde thing about needing all your belongings to bring you joy? If I followed that… Read more

Favorite Thing: Little Rock Central High School

I geeked out when I found out I would be going to Little Rock Central High School, which spans four city blocks, and when it was built in 1927 for 1.5 million dollars was considered the most architecturally beautiful school in the country. I knew about the Little Rock Nine… Read more

Favorite Thing: Goodbye, Girls

I know lots of people hate-watched Girls. I know it drove people nuts with its narcissistic rants and sometimes grotesque kink. But I loved it. I loved it so much I couldn’t bear to watch the last several episodes and let them stack up on my DVR. My life as… Read more
