      ★ “In this Southern Gothic love letter to the spookier side of New Orleans's storied past, Arden spins out a moody tale of magic and mystery… a thoroughly satisfying page-turner and a strong.” – Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review
      “Debut author Arden offers readers a full plate of Southern gothic atmospherics and sparkling teen romance in a patiently crafted tale that will best reward careful readers... Satisfying teen entertainment but also a cathartic, uncompromising tribute to New Orleans.” – Kirkus Reviews
      "In the way that it fuses the experience of adolescence, the city of New Orleans, history, magic and vampires, The Casquette Girls can’t help but be a fun adventure, but more than that, it’s a smart story with a surprising amount of emotional depth.” – IndieReader
      I'm currently bouncing back and forth between Brooklyn and the Faubourg Marigny in an attempt to become less nomadic.  This is my first attempt at writing, so I would love as much feedback as possible. Feel free to comment, message me, tweet me, send smoke signals, or whatever it is that you do...

Hello, Alys,
      Sorry I cannot make it to New Orleans today for your session of meeting fans and new readers of your books but unfortunately I am stuck in Northwestern Alberta, Canada forever or at least now! I would have loved to come and see you and New Orleans, I hope that you have an awesome turnout and meet lots of fans and make even more readers today! If you ever make it up to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada I would love to come!! So I hope that you have an awesome day at the public library, your friend Karen Elizabath
Hai Kittens!
      This message is for anyone in the New Orleans area!
      Just a quick reminder that I am going to be at the New Orleans Public Library​ today! I don’t think I have been this excited about anything since Comic Con!
      There will be books for sale at a discounted price, plus I’ll be giving away some awesome swag! If you already have a copy of TCG, bring it to get signed! If you have an ebook, I’ll have some post cards :) OR just come to chat and hang. Having a book is NOT a requirement... plus you can always check it out from the library ^_^
      Hope to see your face! <3
