Launch Party for “Bittersweet” by Tyffani Clark Kemp

The Book:
Welcome to Mother Cora’s, where the offspring of the Kaveesh learn to coexist with humans. 

One hundred and twenty years ago, the Kaveesh came to Earth to save it from a disease that gorged itself on anything in its wake. Buildings crumbled to dust, soil and plant life were consumed, and two-thirds of the Earth’s population perished.

The only thing the Kaveesh asked in return was to help save their dying race. Breeding programs began and the half-breeds were born.

Lirabel is a half-breed and an overachiever. Despite a few setbacks, she’s scheduled to graduate early from Mother Cora’s and become the Half-breed Ambassador to the Humans.

Enter Jonas. They were best friends until he broke her heart and disappeared five years ago. Now, he’s back, but Lirabel couldn’t care less. There are more important things to worry about…

Like finishing her last year of school and becoming ambassador. Or the half-bred students losing control of their Kaveesh strengths and being sent into quarantine. Or how the breeding programs that were supposed to have ended might still be up and running.

And somehow, Jonas’ bittersweet return is connected to it all.

Author: Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she's probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don't have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quite, but she always has a story to tell.
