Ice Blessed Cover Reveal

Ice Blessed Cover Reveal

On Wednesday, my newsletter subscribers received a sneak-peek of the as-yet-unreleased cover image … as well as advance notice of a few exciting dates to look forward to in the near future.

Thanks to a momentary lapse in common sense when creating a Facebook event this evening, I’ve decided to share at least some of that information today, instead of Monday. To be fair, I’ve been holding onto this for months now, so I’ve lasted a lot longer than I thought I would.

Behold! The glorious cover of my third novel!

Honestly, I think this is my favorite cover to date – and not just because it happens to be my favorite color. There are layers here, layers that one might not appreciate until reading the book. I could point them out … but maybe I’ll wait until someone else comments. I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for you. 😉

Now, you might wonder what sort of event would cause me to accidentally reveal a bookcover. The answer is simple:

I have an official author signing event scheduled on May 28th.

An event held in a bookstore.

This is my first bookstore appearance, guys!!! I’m so incredibly excited and happy and hopeful … which is why I created a Facebook event (and used the cover image wallpaper as the event photo, much to my chagrin). Folks can sign up and share the event as much as they wish.

I’m well aware that I’m a relatively unknown author and that I shouldn’t expect a huge turnout. That doesn’t mean I’m going to listen to my common sense. At the very least I should have a few coworkers show up. Not to mention my husband and a few friends. I won’t be alone … but boy, it would be epic to have over a dozen people show up.

If you or someone you know lives near Austin, Texas, then mark May 28th on your calendars. Hop over to Facebook and check out the event, and keep an eye on the blog for further updates. I already know that I’ll have goodies available (like my series-themed bookmarks) as well as a limited stock of printed books – but if anyone brings their own copies of the books I’ll gladly sign them!

Series bookmarks? Yes. They look like this:

I’m only showing the first one. I guess you’ll need to tune in next week to see the rest … 😀

 

The new and improved Fire Blessed.

Now, originally, I wanted to wait for this announcement. It feels like cheating to have two cover reveals in the same week … especially when I go weeks (or months!) in between posts.

That said, who in their right mind wants their covers within a series to not match? I mean, when a series has an obvious theme, don’t you want to make sure all your covers belong to the same theme? (You artsy types that prefer the eclectic look can hush – I’m validating myself. Don’t burst my bubble!)

So, without further ado, I present to you: the new and improved eBook cover for Fire Blessed!

Sigh … Magnificent, isn’t it? Once again, huge thanks to Winter Bayne for her incredible work! It even comes with a new cover pitch:

In UnBlessed, readers were introduced to the fiery-tempered Marius Caleo. Raised among Favored society, Marius has everything: wealth, status, charm, and popularity. Yet, he yearns for greater power and independence.

When Marius is introduced to the mysterious Inner Council and offered an assignment, he believes he finally found the path to achieving greatness. Unfortunately, their involvement in his future comes with a price …

Now, Marius must decide how far he’s willing to go achieve his ambitions – because sometimes independence and power don’t go hand in hand.

Now, one little disclaimer here: Fire Blessed does not have any bonus chapters or additional changes. This is only a cosmetic face-lift for the cover, the story remains the same.

Here are a few other updates for those keeping track:

  • The print proof for UnBlessed is in the mail. If everything goes well, you folks should have an update regarding print copies within the next week!
  • The eBook files for both volumes, including cover bling, have been submitted to KDP. Don’t be surprised if you see the new editions available sometime this weekend …
  • The print proof for Fire Blessed is in the processing stage – this means that neither of my titles are currently available to purchase as a paperback. I promise that this is a temporary situation, and I’ll have those print copies available ASAP – and I’ll post an update with relevant buy links for everyone.
  • I believe I promised some of you desktop wallpapers … Well, here are two of my favorites – along with a third teaser Winter created for my birthday!

Enjoy!

Cover reveal!

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m pleased to announce the cover reveal for my second novel: Fire Blessed!

For those new to my blog, Fire Blessed is the second novel in my Blessings of Myrillia series. The first volume, UnBlessed, can be found online at Amazon.com or with most major book retailers.

Unfortunately, I don’t have an exact release date for Fire Blessed yet, especially since it’s still in the editing process. Hopefully, this little teaser will give my fans a little something to look forward to.

Without further ado, I give you: Fire Blessed!
