Starr Gone! A Guest Post with the Author, Kim Briggs!

A Starr gone. A team betrayed.

Starr Gone (Starr Fall #3) by Kim Briggs
Genre: Young Adult (Action/Adventure/Romance)
Date Published:  June 2, 2017
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing

A Starr gone. A team betrayed. 

You never know who your true friends are until a gun’s pointed at you. One will take a bullet, and the other will pull the trigger. Starr learned that lesson the hard way. 

The perfect smile. A killer attitude. General Treadwell wanted nothing more than to turn Starr Bishop into the ideal assassin, but she’s far more valuable as Jessica Chamberlain, granddaughter and heir to Chamberlain Chocolates. Luckily, he’s found two enthusiastic replacements. They lack Starr’s intelligence, but no matter, they possess their own weapons of persuasion along with a flair for the dramatic, and that’s never a bad thing. 

Di, along with Christian, Frank, Ben and Coda, are determined to keep Starr safe, but the depths of betrayal crack the very foundation of the team. When Starr becomes a pawn in a game of power, money, and manipulation, Di channels her WWSD (What Would Starr Do) to rally the team. She owes her best friend that much. No... More. 

Instalove: Love it or Leave it?
by Kim Briggs


Seriously, did you just groan? You don’t believe in it, do you?

Ever have your crush kick open your jammed locker for you? Remember those crazy ass butterflies in your stomach when your fingers touched? How about that friend request or the notification that So & So started following you? THEN the DM, “Hey!” You felt pretty freaking fantastic, didn’t you?

And what happened when the crush showed up at the party and starting talking to you? You spent the night talking about the mysteries of the universe while everyone else sat around eating chips.

You’ve just experienced instalove my friend. Instalove doesn’t mean forever—I think that’s where the misunderstanding comes in. Instalove means at some moment in the universe your worlds have collided and you become everything to each other. The school walls crumble around you, a tater tot war breaks out in the cafeteria, but as long as you’re together, unicorns leave a sparkly trail of glitter for you to follow.

Instalove is a wish come true on the page. Take Starr and Christian, Instalove at its purest. In the beginning, the Organization wants Starr as an assassin, they killed two of her best friends, then her parents kidnapped her but she managed to get away. Her world is collapsing, but Starr and Christian seem more caught up in a kiss than running from the Organization.

What seems like the perfect relationship always contains a backstory and a behind the scenes story. Instalove will be tested. It always is. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes it doesn’t. Hearts will be broken and stomped on, but there’s beauty in that pain too. A wise Dumbledore said, "Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love,” or Dumbledore to Snape, "After all this time?" "Always," said Snape.

So yes, I write swoonworthy instalove scenes, because otherwise, what’s the point?

Starr and Christian’s instalove will be tested in Starr Gone, Book Three. The unicorns stop leaving glittery trails for them to follow. The question remains whether their relationship is strong enough to resolve it.
Have you read the books yet??

Kim once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.

An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17 year old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it’s not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can’t escape. And Then He is available now through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall will debut November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017.

When she’s not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snow drifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She’s careful to avoid trees.

  1. Yippee! You are so awesome for letting me guest post! What do you think of Instalove? Do tell...

    1. In real life, I like the idea of instalove... I think it's more intsalust or instalike than actual love though. I just can't think or feel love and not add some kind of forever to it.

      In fictional worlds, sometimes I like it & sometimes it feels all wrong. When it comes to Starr and Christian?? It works! I really, really hope it lasts!! *wink*

      Thank you so much for your guest post! I loved having you on the blog. We'll have to do it again sometime. :-)


Thank your for stopping by. Please comment! I'd love to hear from you!
