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.

Coming 05/01/2018 from Snowy Wings Publishing!

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.

Cover Reveal: Turn to Dust and Ashes

TurntoDustandAshessmall

Title: Turn to Dust and Ashes (Fall Far from the Tree #2)
Author: Amy McNulty
Publisher: Patchwork Press

Publication Date: 09/05/2017

Impassive. Devious. Besieged. Naive. In the ashes of their parents’ cruel sovereignty, four teenagers are left holding the reins with no idea how to lead their peoples to peace and prosperity.

Rohesia, told she is the true heir to Hanaobi, must choose between ruling the duchy in her father’s place and returning with her cousin to seek the throne that is more rightfully hers. Without her father figure, she has little interest in either, but there is no escape from the infamous legacy of her parents on both sides of the sea.

Fastello, left to lead both his father’s people and to seek the rule of the entire duchy, has never had so much responsibility in his life. Grappling with heartbreak the likes of which he’s never experienced, he doesn’t know if he has it in him to try to fill the hole so many people so desperately want him to fill.

Kojiro, adrift in a strange land and emboldened by the actions of the people he met there, is determined to find his courage and free his people from the tyranny of his mother’s reign. However, with her number one foe defeated, the empress of Hanaobi is more unstoppable than ever.

Tomiko, the perfect daughter to the strict and controlling empress, is sheltered from the reality of the world but eager to discover the truth. Before the war is over, she must decide between fealty to her mother and loyalty to her brother, knowing full well that either way, her family will never be whole again.

The goals of each of these four young adults are bound to clash—but there’s no escaping their destinies, no matter the destruction left in their paths.

Cover Reveal: Ballad of the Beanstalk

Hello! I’m so excited to share with you the cover for Amy McNulty’s new book, Ballad of the Beanstalk! This YA romantic fantasy fairy tale is a prequel to Jack and the Beanstalk. I read this one last year and it’s SO GOOD. And check out the amazing cover created by Makeready Designs.

beanstalkebook.jpg

As her fingers move across the strings of her family’s heirloom harp, sixteen-year-old Clarion can forget. She doesn’t dwell on the recent passing of her beloved father or the fact that her mother has just sold everything they owned, including that very same instrument that gives Clarion life. She doesn’t think about how her friends treat her like a feeble, brittle thing to be protected. She doesn’t worry about how to tell the elegant Elena, her best friend and first love, that she doesn’t want to be her sweetheart anymore. She becomes the melody and loses herself in the song.

When Mack, a lord’s dashing young son, rides into town so his father and Elena’s can arrange a marriage between the two youth, Clarion finds herself falling in love with a boy for the first time. Drawn to Clarion’s music, Mack puts Clarion and Elena’s relationship to the test, but he soon vanishes by climbing up a giant beanstalk that only Clarion has seen. When even the town witch won’t help, Clarion is determined to rescue Mack herself and prove once and for all that she doesn’t need protecting. But while she fancied herself a savior, she couldn’t have imagined the enormous world of danger that awaits her in the kingdom of the clouds.

A prequel to the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk that reveals the true story behind the magical singing harp.
