I’m here to do a guest post (and warning: it’s gonna be a giffy one) for Woman Writer Crush Wednesday! So let’s get rockin’ and rollin’!

People Of The Interwebs,

We are gathered here to celebrate a lady who is truly a queen in her fierceness, who never fails to be on fleek, who is always just casually slayin’. That lady…is Maria Dahvana Headley, author of Magonia and the upcoming sequel, Aerie.

Now if you’re totally like,

I say to you:

Don’t want to?

Okay, then. I’ll kindly just throw all of the facts at you in this post then!

I was first made aware of how amaztastic Ms. Headley is in this video by Epic Reads

THE WOMAN WAS A FREAKIN PIRATE NEGOTIATOR!!! HOW CAN YOU NOT THINK THAT IS COOL????

Just everything about her screams fierce woman totally slayin life!

Fierce

But Headley’s not just slayin’ life, she’s slayin’ writing! Magonia was one of my favorite books of last year because of its beautifully unique writing and story! It is different, but in the best way possible. Want to know a bit more about the book? You’re in luck because Epic Reads has supplied another handy dandy video explaining the premise…

And get this: IT WAS BLURBED BY NEIL GAIMAN HIMSELF!!!

Are you interested now? No? WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE?!!!

First off,
