Cover Reveal: Iron & Aqua

I’m very excited to share the stunning cover of Amy McNulty’s upcoming novel, IRON & AQUA today!

Iron&Aquasmall

 

Title: Iron & Aqua

Series: Blood, Bloom, & Water Book Three

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Publication Date: First Quarter 2019

A beguiling vampire. The besotted girl who agreed to be his champion. The ongoing battle to save not only the vampires, but also the world.

 

Ember Goodwin didn’t realize that falling in love would mean sometimes transforming into a vampire—or that she’d be able to shoot fire from her hand. Though she never wanted her step-sister to be her enemy, she can’t just stand aside and let the merfolk proceed with their wicked plans. After walking amongst the undead, she knows that vampires are the true heroes of the ancient conflict, and she’ll do what it takes to make sure they win—even if that means going against the sibling who got caught up on the wrong side of the war.

 

The third book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series takes the war between fangs and fins to new heights as betrayals and secrets threaten to unravel even the best of intentions.

Cover Reveal: Salt & Venom

Today I’m sharing the cover of Amy McNulty’s next book, SALT & VENOM!

Salt&Venom_Ebook-Amazon

 

Title: Salt & Venom

Series: Blood, Bloom, & Water Book Two

Author: Amy McNulty

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Publication Date: 10/16/2018 (tentative)

An emboldened merman. The daring girl who agreed to be his champion. The upcoming battle that threatens to change everything they believe in.

Ivy Sheppard never wanted the ability to turn into a mermaid—though her wicked ice powers are nothing to sneeze at. Now her step-sister is her enemy, the fairy she once trusted may not be the ally she hoped for, and her new boyfriend wants her to transfer schools to avoid the vampires taking over Union High. Between dodging parents’ concerns, pretending she can stand to even look at the step-sister who sided with the bloodsuckers, and still aiming to end it all without violence, Ivy is in over her head. Unfortunately, these ancient enemies are itching to get the conflict started and Ivy may have no choice but to become the warrior the merfolk need her to be.

The second book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series starts the war between fangs and fins in earnest as the merfolk plan their assault to bring down the unnatural undead vampires once and for all.

Cover Reveal: Fangs & Fins

Today I’m very excited to share with you the cover of Amy McNulty’s upcoming YA novel, Fangs & Fins, the first book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series! I had a chance to read this one already and I can tell you that you’re in for a treat. Plus, this cover! IT’S SO PRETTY!

It’s simply gorgeous!

A dapper vampire. A sullen merman. Two heirs to a great conflict—and each needs to claim a beloved to become his kindred’s champion.

High school senior Ember Goodwin never had a sister, but after her mom’s remarriage, she now has two. The eldest is no stranger to her—Ivy is a witty girl in her grade who’s almost never spoken to the shy bookworm before—but she’s surprised to find the popular girl quite amiable. Their burgeoning friendship is tested, however, when Dean Horne, a pale, besuited charmer, shows interest in them both and plans to reveal his appetite for blood to the one who’ll stand by his side.

Seventeen-year-old Ivy Sheppard is tired of splitting her time between her dad’s and her mom’s, particularly when her dad uproots their lives to move them in with his new wife and step-daughter. Used to rolling with her parents’ whims, she tries to make the best of it and befriend her nerdy new step-sister. Her hectic life grows more unwieldy when she catches the eye of junior Calder Poole, whom she swears she sees swap well-toned legs for a pair of fins during a dip in a lake. Now she’s fending off suitors left and right, all while trying to get to the bottom of the strange happenings in her town.

The first book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series sets family against family and friend against friend as an epic, ancient war comes to a head in a supposedly sleepy suburb.

Cover Reveal: The Sleeping Ancient

All good things must come to an end, and today I’m sharing the cover of the final Smoke and Mirrors book, THE SLEEPING ANCIENT. When I first started writing THE FADING DUSK, I never imagined I would end up with a six book series. I figured it would be another trilogy, with maybe a novella containing some short stories. But after I started writing book two, things began shifting drastically from my intended outline, and I knew I was going to need another full length novel in order to tell Irina’s story properly.

And what a story it’s been.

THE SLEEPING ANCIENT releases May 22nd. It’s the longest book in the series, and I found it hard to say goodbye to these characters. But I’m satisfied with their ending, and I hope you will be, too!

And now, because I’ve had you wait long enough, here’s the cover!

The Sleeping Acient_Final-ebooksm

Once again, Regina Wamba of Mae I Design has blown me away with this gorgeous, stunning cover! All the little details are perfect, and I love that Irina is looking straight at you this time. Irina’s growth throughout this series is so important, and I wanted a cover that symbolizes how strong she’s become. She looks absolutely badass and I love it.

Let’s take a look at the full wrap!

Yeah, I’m in love.

It’s time for a title reveal!

Hello! I’m sorry for my extended absence, but I’ve been working on the final Smoke and Mirrors book for the last few months. The hard part (writing and editing) is done, so I can finally share some fun things!

First of all, the title! The final book will be called:

THE SLEEPING ANCIENT

It took me a long time to come up with that one. I can’t tell you who or what the sleeping ancient is, but I can say it’s a character we haven’t met yet.

I have another treat for you, the blurb! This is full of spoilers for the last two books, so if you haven’t read THE WHISPERING ECHOES or RUN AND TOUCH THE SKY, maybe don’t read this?

(Last chance to look away!)

.

.

.

The unthinkable has happened: A dragon was slain, her death used to free the three most powerful and dangerous magicians in the world, and Irina was powerless to stop it. Now she must pick up the broken pieces and prepare for a battle she seems destined to lose.

But all is not lost.

Hope comes in the form of Nerine, a girl from a faraway land, and her army of dragons. Irina and Nerine know the only way to win this is to work together by uniting their ragtag team of friends, which is easier said than done. Tensions flare, dark secrets from their pasts are revealed, and tears are shed as the heroes struggle to put aside their differences and decide on their next course of action.

The road forward is not easy. In Irina’s most dangerous adventure yet, she travels to lands both new and familiar, learning to accept the fledging magic that’s inside of her. In a race against time, with more than one life at stake, failure is not an option.

When the curtain falls on the final Smoke and Mirrors book, who will be left to take a bow?

.

.

And finally, I’m pleased to say the book will be coming this May! That’s not too far away! There will be a cover reveal in April, which I’m super excited about. I really enjoyed writing this one and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!

Cover Reveal for the Stay in Touch Series

Today we have a triple cover reveal for author Joy Penny and her Stay in Touch Books 2-4!
touchofheartache_joypenny_ebook_s
Title: Touch of Heartache
Series: Stay in Touch (Book 2)
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Publication Date: 12/5/2017
Blurb:

Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expected.

Just weeks before graduating, Lilac Townsend throws away her elementary school teacher job offer in Minnesota to work in Florida at the official resort of her favorite vacation spot, Tildy World. Pushing down all second thoughts, she fills her mind with visions of sunny beaches and Tildy Tapir, the cartoon character who always promised to make her childhood dreams come true. Unfortunately, between a sleazy boss and a community college student in a character suit who manages to fray her last nerve, Lilac soon learns that working behind the scenes at the park is hardly “happily ever after.”

Nolan Gregosky had plans after graduating high school a few years back: go to college, join a fraternity, and make some memories before earning a degree. Instead, tragedy sidelined those dreams, but his job posing for pictures with drooling, snot-nosed kids as Silly Sandgrouse gives him a chance to unload some pent-up energy. When the stunning but uptight new assistant manager at the resort proves a distraction in more ways than one, Nolan realizes it’s up to him to show her what it means to eat, live, and breathe life at the park.

A relationship at this unsteady stage of their lives might not be the brightest idea for either of them, but it’s hard to ignore that tingling sensation whenever the paths of this plush-suit beast and naïve beauty collide.

And here’s the full wrap!

Stay in Touch Book 3 (Touch of Comfort, Gavin’s story) and Stay in Touch Book 4 (Touch of Romance, Pembroke’s story) will be out in 2018. For now you can check out their amazing covers below!

Cover Reveal: Run and Touch the Sky

Here we are with another cover (and title!) reveal! This time it’s for the next book in the Smoke and Mirrors series. Without further ado, I present the cover for RUN AND TOUCH THE SKY.

Run and Touch the Sky Cover

I love it. The mountains! The sky! The colors! It’s gorgeous.

So you’re probably thinking a couple of things. First of all, it doesn’t match (title or image wise) THE FADING DUSK, THE BURNING CHAOS, or THE WHISPERING ECHOES. And wait, what’s that, ANOTHER novella? Yes, yes, this is not the next (and final!) book in the Smoke and Mirrors series. Yes, you have to wait a bit longer to find out what happens next after the cliffhanger of THE WHISPERING ECHOES. Yes, I’m evil. I know.

Okay, look, I never intended on writing this one. I know, I know, I say this all the time, but it’s true! I was all set on writing the last book when two new characters appeared and I had to write about them. Once I started developing the characters, the setting, the story, I realized this was the missing piece of the puzzle I’d been looking for. Just like BY THE MORNING LIGHT, Irina’s story could not continue without telling the story of RUN AND TOUCH THE SKY first.

So, what’s it about? Here’s the blurb (warning for slight spoilers for the other books!):

In a world where magic is real and dragons are extinct, the people of Meradell are keepers of a great secret: Dragons live. Highly protective of these magnificent creatures who were prosecuted relentlessly during the old wars, the Meradellans promised two hundred years ago to never betray them. But even though the ancient beings live peacefully, the magic is dying, and no new dragons have hatched in nearly three hundred years.

At fifteen years old, Nerine is in awe—and just a touch envious—of her older sister’s bond with one of the majestic beasts. When her sister’s dragon—the last one to hatch in the mountains—might become a mother herself, Nerine wonders why her sister should have all the glory. Setting off with her best friend, Nerine climbs the mountains in hopes of glimpsing the hatchlings.

What she encounters there is nothing she imagined or expected, and a disastrous chain of events brings about both the worst and best moments of Nerine’s life. Now she must learn to heal her heart and look to the future if she hopes to save both the dragons and herself.

Featuring a new cast of characters, Run and Touch the Sky is the penultimate book in the Smoke and Mirrors series by author Melissa Giorgio.

BY THE MORNING LIGHT was Claudette’s story, and RUN AND TOUCH THE SKY is Nerine’s story. As you can see, this is a new city with a whole new cast of characters (well, with one familiar face). This story is directly tied to Irina and Claudette’s story and sets up the final book in the Smoke and Mirrors series. I love Nerine and the other characters in this book, but let me tell, this one was a hard one to write.

Oh, and don’t let the word “novella” fool you. This one is novel-sized. But no one is complaining about that, right?

Here’s the full wrap, which shows off more of the beautiful mountains:

What do you think? I hope you’re excited to read Nerine’s story! While it doesn’t have an official release date, I’m hoping to have it out by the end of the year. Stay tuned for details.
