Meet The Third Round Competitors!


Our second round competitors will be Laura Bradford and Katie Hayoz! You’ll be able to see their posts starting Monday 2/23 and vote starting Tuesday 2/24. To meet Laura Bradford and a little about her character head over to Stormi’s blog. That’s where you’ll catch her February 23rd & 24th too. Over here at Fantasy is More Fun, we’re team Katie Hayoz and her character – Sylvie Sydell! Let’s meet her shall we?

Meet Katie Hayoz

Katie Hayoz

Katie grew up in Racine, Wisconsin where she acquired an irreversible nasal twang and an addiction for books with a slightly dark edge. She now lives in Geneva, Switzerland with her husband, two daughters, and a very fuzzy cat. She has been an avid reader of YA fiction for years. While she has a penchant for the paranormal, she devours a range of books — along with popcorn and black licorice. She consumes all three in large quantities. Luckily, the books don’t stay on her hips. Find her on her website, Goodreads, or Twitter!

It will be Katie’s character, Sylvie Sydell of Untethered, that solves our Murder at the Reinhart in a couple weeks. You’ll get to know Shelby a bit better Friday and February 23-24 but you can get to know her really well in her book:

Pages: 352

Sylvie isn’t comfortable in her own skin. In fact, there are times she can’t even manage to stay inside it. But if there is one thing she’s sure of, it’s her love for Kevin Phillips. She’s willing to stake everything on it –her family, her friends, and possibly her soul.

Sixteen-year-old Sylvie has been best friends with Cassie forever. But everything is turned around when the boy Sylvie’s loved since fifth grade falls for Cassie. Devastated, Sylvie intends to get Kevin by any means possible, even if it involves treachery, deceit, and the dark side of astral projection. She is positive her plans will give her what she wants, but she doesn’t count on it all spiraling out of control.

Untethered explores the intoxicating and dangerous world of jealousy and obsession when coupled with paranormal ability. Finalist in Mslexia novel competition.


You’ve had a chance to briefly meet Katie and her Sylvie, but we’re sure that by the time round one is over you’ll be dying to read more. Thankfully, Katie has decided to make that a bit easier for one lucky winner! Good luck!

Be sure to stop by Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My! to meet Katie’s competitor Laura Bradford! And come back to see who you’ll vote for! Any third round predictions?

      I’m so excited to read Untethered! I should probably enter the giveaway LOL but I’d never let myself win, so I guess I’ll just use my book money!
