1 Romina Russell, author of WANDERING STAR, on letting your inner light burn even brighter

WANDERING STAR is the second book in the Zodiac series, and we're excited to have Romina Russell here to tell us more about it.

Romina, what do you hope readers will take away from WANDERING STAR?

If ZODIAC dealt mostly with universe-building, WANDERING STAR is all about character. My biggest hope for readers who pick up this book is that they’re reminded that even people who think differently than they do deserve to be heard. And above all, I hope they enjoy themselves!

How long or hard was your road to publication? How many books did you write before this one, and how many never got published?

My road to publication felt endless, but in technical terms, it took ten years. ZODIAC was my first published novel, and even before I started writing it, I'd already completed five full-length manuscripts, including one that I re-wrote entirely at least four times—and I’m actually working on a fifth iteration of that very story now! Apparently, I don’t give up on characters easily…not even when they’re driving me CRAZY.



What advice would you most like to pass along to other writers?

Trust Yourself. No one else can tell you what your story is—your teachers can’t, your parents can’t, your friends can’t, your editor can’t, your favorite book can’t, and I can’t—because only you know the stories you carry in your heart. If you give up on them, no one else will ever hear them. So take a page from Rho, and when your world goes black, let your inner light burn even brighter.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Wandering Star by Romina Russell
Hardcover
Razorbill
Released 12/8/2015

Orphaned, disgraced, and stripped of her title, Rho is ready to live life quietly, as an aid worker in the Cancrian refugee camp on House Capricorn.

But news has spread that the Marad--an unbalanced terrorist group determined to overturn harmony in the Galaxy--could strike any House at any moment. 

Then, unwelcome nightmare that he is, Ochus appears to Rho, bearing a cryptic message that leaves her with no choice but to fight.

Now Rho must embark on a high-stakes journey through an all-new set of Houses, where she discovers that there's much more to her Galaxy--and to herself--than she could have ever imagined.
