COVER REVEAL- Resurrection (Immortal Soulless Book One) by Tanith Frost

Coming June 27, 2017

COVER1WITHTEXT

Her gifts will be her salvation… or her downfall.

No one gave Aviva a choice about becoming a monster. Since the night of her murder she’s been forced to accept a new reality—burned by sunlight, dependent on the blood of the living, searching for her place in a dark world she didn’t believe existed until she awoke as a vampire.

She’s still struggling to accept her fate and master her dark powers when the news arrives: rogue vampires are torturing and killing human residents of the city, threatening the secrecy and uneasy peace of the supernatural world.

As the hunt begins, Aviva’s deliciously distracting trainer, Daniel, helps her seek out her unique strengths. The gifts she discovers are shameful in the eyes of vampire society—and they may be the only thing standing between a pack of ruthless paranormal killers and the unsuspecting humans they prey on.

COVER REVEAL: Beast & Beauty by Kate Sparkes

Hey! That’s me! 😀

Here’s the story. I mean, not the story… that’s coming February 23. But the story ABOUT the story.

I’ve been hard at work on my vampires since October (and before that, but that’s another story). I love them. They’re wonderful. They’re dark and delicious and bloody and sexy and fast-paced and they’re TOTALLY my front-burner project right now.

But isn’t it fun to play in another sandbox sometimes, just to get a break?

Back in December, I was asked whether I’d be interested in participating in a fairy tale romance short story anthology. Word count under 8,000 words, due in January.

WOULD I? I love fairy tales! I love romance! And the kicker was that I could do whatever I wanted, including setting it in one of my worlds.

It would have been perfect had I been able to come up with a story I thought I could do justice to in that small word count, but I couldn’t. I mean, I could have told the story, sure. But the one I wanted to tell would have felt really sparse and rushed at that length.*

But once those ideas start bouncing around, it’s hard to set them aside. Especially when it’s Christmas, you’re supposed to be “off work,” and you’re itching to write something a little different from that Urban Fantasy you’re working on.

Or maybe that’s just me.

In any case, Beast & Beauty was born. It looks nothing like the original concept I came up with for a twist on Beauty and the Beast, but I’m totally in love with it. It’s set in Elurien several years before Into Elurien, in the midst of the monster revolution. Queen Verelle is very much alive and showing her true colours, and a timid cervid named Nava is about to get way more adventure than her heart ever desired.

Can’t wait for a bit of sweet fairy tale romance, big adventure, and another visit to Elurien?

Well, I’ve got good news. This gorgeous little novella is coming on February 23, 2017… and it’s going to be absolutely FREE.

Yep, this one is a newsletter exclusive, and I’ll be sending the links out on my birthday (because hey, I like giving gifts as much as I like getting them).

Not signed up yet? Visit my website and click the newsletter tab at the top. Once you’ve confirmed your subscription (check your spam and promo folders), the gears at Mailchimp will start turning, and you’ll get two free Bound trilogy prequel stories in about 24 hours.

…and this story on the 23rd.

See you then!

*truth be told, there were two I wanted to tell. The other, a revised and expanded version of my flash fiction story “Cinder Ella” will be next, and will likely go out to my pen name’s newsletter list… when she has one.


COVER REVEAL: Death at Peony House by Krista Walsh

Hey, everyone! I’m SO excited to be a part of this cover reveal today! Not only is Krista a good friend of mine AND one of my favourite authors, but I may… kind of… sort of be 100% sure that this is a fantastic new series of urban fantasy novels.

I kind of have an in. All I’m saying.

I KNOW THINGS.

*ahem*

Anyway, the prequel novella, The Invisible Entente, is out now. And we’ll see Daphne’s story soon. And then… I can’t say. But it’s amazing. If you like your this-world fantasy brought to you with a side of classic mythology and amazing adventure, you definitely want to check this one out.

Details on this book below. But first, LOOK AT THIS COVER! Created by the ever amazing Ravven.

peony_promo

I love Ravven. *sigh*

ANYWAY. Check this out. Then grab your copy of The Invisible Entente (free with Kindle Unlimited!) so you’ll be ready for this one when it comes out on September 20 (!!!!!!)

Sorceress and journalist Daphne Heartstone heads to Peony House, the city’s abandoned hospital, in search of a headline, but what she discovers is a dead body and a clue to a hundred-and-fifty-year-old cold case.

Detective Hunter Avery, the man Daphne loved and lost, warns her away from the case, but the ghosts of Peony House have demanded her help, and her job is on the line if she doesn’t have a story on her editor’s desk for Saturday’s edition.

Daphne has worked hard to escape her past of dark magic and blind ambition, but as she walks the balance between light and dark, she’ll learn how many promises she’s willing to break to protect the people she loves.

Oooooooooh!

BONUS: I just found out that Krista has got the release party set up! This is a Facebook event, so you can attend from wherever you are, wear whatever you want, eat and drink what you like, and not have to talk to anyone in person. In other words, the perfect party. Here’s the link. Click “interested” and “going” to get updates.


CRUNCH TIME! :D

Yeah, I put a stupid happy face in the title. It seemed fitting.

The past month or so has been weird for me. I finished up post-alpha reader revisions on Into Elurien several weeks before it was scheduled to go to my editor, and she was kind enough to let me send it in so I’d stop picking at it, and in case she could get to it a bit early.

Sue may be a kindred spirit. She gets it.

Anyway, I had another project to work on after I sent that off. A big one. Probably the most ambitious thing I’ve ever done, in style if not scope or size. It’s a story I’ve been excited about since the idea popped into my head early one morning last year, and I’ve been itching to get to it.

And yet.

This is going to sound horribly unprofessional, especially if you’re familiar with the production styles of other writers, many of whom crank books out in a month, work on two or three books at a time in various states of production, and have no trouble jumping from story to story… but I really hate working on multiple projects.

I just don’t deal well with interruptions. I can’t start working in the morning if I know I’m likely to be interrupted in an hour by Jehovah’s Witnesses*.  I like hours to spread out, get my head into whatever I’m working on… time to procrastinate… I know, it’s a problem. I’m working on it!

My point is, I had a hard time getting momentum on the first draft of The Phoenix Game (working title) when I knew Into Elurien would be coming back before I got through the draft. I like to push through drafts in one go, so the knowledge that I’d be interrupted–even a few weeks down the road–was distracting and demotivating.

So as much as I adore this new book and all of its puzzling challenges, it was actually a relief when I opened my email yesterday to find Into Elurien back safe from edits. I mean, it’s bleeding, but it’s basically cosmetic issues. Big change from my full-length novels, which come back hacked to shreds, requiring a month or more of work to put them back together.

So that’s progress, and I’m excited to get IE done so I can then turn my full attention back to PG and really dig deep into it.

Today I get to return to my beloved Hazel, who’s going to be getting a little character work done to help her story flow well. I get to get reacquainted with Auphel, who’s stealing hearts wherever she goes. And I get to see Zinian again, who’s just… Yeah. It’s getting hard having my heart split between all of my book guys. He’s special. I want one.

What was I saying?

Right. PROGRESS! I’ve got beta readers lined up for the beginning of May. Pre-orders going up May 15. Release day June 15. Parties. Giveaways. Teasers.

And, of course, the cover reveal TOMORROW. AND sending out the newsletter, in which subscribers will meet Zinian for themselves. First excerpt. GAH. Excitement! Flailing!

You can probably tell I’m excited about this book. 😉

COVER REVEAL ANNOUNCEMENT (and a newsletter bonus!)

*taps microphone*

Hello?

Hi. Just a quick post today. After much hemming and hawing and trying to decide whether the cover reveal for Into Elurien should wait until pre-orders are available, I’ve come to a decision.

And the decision is: Screw that. I want you guys to see it. Those of you who haven’t, I mean. Newsletter subscribers saw it last month. 🙂

So the official Into Elurien cover reveal will be happening this Friday, April 15. That’s exactly one month before pre-orders go up. EEK!

DRESS! BOOK! MAGIC! DARKNESS! YAY!

I want this week to be special for newsletter subscribers, too, so they’re going to get something EXTRA special on Friday. They’ve seen the cover, so they get to meet… well, a very interesting character an early chapter excerpt.

You want to sign up for this. Zinian is a bit of a monster, but I think you’ll like him. Visit this link to get on the list, and be sure to add my email to your approved senders list so you don’t miss the excitement!

And I’ll see you here on Friday. 🙂

(If you’d like to help out by posting the cover reveal on your own blog, I’d be really grateful and super excited to have you on board! Just email me at kate.sparkes@live.ca and we’ll work that out. Anyone who helps out will be first in line for an advance review copy of this adventure-packed new adult fantasy romance–just let me know you want one when we talk.)

 


COVER REVEAL: Bladelore (Krista Walsh)

Hey, everyone!

I’m so excited to be able to share this cover reveal with you today, along with some exciting news from the author. Because honestly, who DOESN’T want to be a part of unleashing something beautiful on the world? Especially when it happens to involve the conclusion to a wonderful story.

I mean, really.

Ready?

Introducing… Bladelore.

Bladelore-lores

War has come to Andvell. Enemy after enemy takes its place along the northern border, each one a terrifying result of dark magic and experimentation. In the face of the great army, Andvell’s resources are few.

As the enemy marches, unlikely hero Venn Connell must act or be lost in the flood — one final mission to end the war, no matter the cost.

Standing on the brink of devastation, Venn is forced to question her most deeply held beliefs and trust her friends to see her through the darkness.

EEEEEEEEP. (Lovely cover art by Jeff Brown)

Okay, now for the other exciting news. To celebrate the upcoming release of Bladelore this spring (exact date TBD, but I’ll keep you posted), book one of the Cadis trilogy is going to be on sale this coming week for 99 cents!

I’m like, 99% sure it’s to celebrate my birthday, actually, but Ms Walsh hasn’t commented on that.

Mark your calendars!
