Ashley MansourBlood, Ink & Fire by Ashley Mansour is a first-time author, with her debut novel Blood, Ink & Fire, who has a background in the entertainment industry where she was involved with brand management and advertising, being able to travel to different countries and work with large teams, emerging artists, major brands and interesting start-up companies.  Blood, Ink & Fire was recently released on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

One of our Bibliboules staff members just had the honor and privilege to meet the newly published author Ashley Mansour and the founder of Upturn Publishing, Alex Pettyfer (actor from: ‘I Am Number Four,’ ‘Magic Mikey,’ ‘Endless Love,’ ‘Beastly,’ and several more other films) for their first official book signing that occurred at the Costco located at 1051 W. Burbank Blvd in Burbank, California on Saturday, December 19, 2015.

Ashley instantly recognized our staff member in the crowd from interacting with her on Instagram.  We’re excited and pleased to mention that both Ashley and Alex were extremely friendly and appreciative for everyone coming out to support them and the book.

Blood, Ink & Fire is a young adult, dystopian fiction novel that has an interesting take on a world without books.  Scary for any book lover to imagine!

Synopsis:

Imagine a world without books…

In the future, books are a distant memory. The written word has been replaced by an ever-present stream of images known as Verity. In the controlling dominion of the United Vales of Fell, reading is obsolete and forbidden, and readers themselves do not—cannot—exist.

But where others see images in the stream, teenager Noelle Hartley sees words. She’s obsessed with what they mean, where they came from, and why they found her.

Noelle’s been keeping her dangerous fixation with words a secret, but on the night before her seventeenth birthday, a rare interruption in the stream leads her to a mysterious volume linked to an underworld of rebel book lovers known as the Nine of the Rising. With the help of the Risers and the beguiling boy Ledger, Noelle discovers that the words within her are precious clues to the books of the earlier time—and as a child of their bookless age, she might be the world’s last hope of bringing them back.
