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: 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.

Cover Reveal: By the Morning Light

It’s time to share the cover for the Smoke and Mirrors novella, BY THE MORNING LIGHT! Drum roll, please…

By the Morning Light - Melissa Giorgio - eBook - S.jpg

What do you think? I’m pretty much in love with this cover. It’s got a brightness to it that contrasts the gritty, darker feel of THE FADING DUSK’s cover. And see that crown of flowers? That’s important to the story. Huge thank you to Berto Designs for the cover!

So what’s BY THE MORNING LIGHT about? Lucky for you I have a blurb:

For Claudette and Emile Borde, living in the city of Ayres and working on their parents’ farm has never been enough. Influenced by stories of the past, in which magic was real and the dragons still lived, the siblings have always dreamed of leaving their city behind and embarking on their own adventures. But as squires training to become full-fledged knights, they must renounce magic, for it was magic that nearly tore the world apart during the old wars.

When the carnival comes to the city, Claudette meets Aeonia, and the two become fast friends. But Aeonia is no simple girl playing at fortune telling—she can wield magic, and it’s both breathtaking and volatile. Torn between upholding her duty as a squire and keeping a secret for her friend, Claudette must decide where her loyalties lie. Is this the adventure she’s always craved, or is she dooming her city and her loved ones by remaining silent?

Set in the same world as The Fading Dusk, By the Morning Light is a brand new adventure by author Melissa Giorgio that sets up the third book in the Smoke and Mirrors series.

Can I just say how much I enjoyed working on this story? First of all, I never planned on writing it, but my trip to Texas last September inspired it (and no, it has nothing to do with Texas itself, just some conversations I had with friends.). I spent a month wondering if I should write it, and, if I did, how could I incorporate it into this world I’ve already established? Would Irina ever meet Claudette? How? Would they get along? The more I thought about these questions, the more I realize I HAD to write this story. Of course that meant pretty much throwing out my outline for book three, but, having just finished the first draft of that book, I can safely say that I’m happy I did chuck that outline. I love Claudette. I love Emile. I love that this book can be read before or after THE FADING DUSK, and also before or after book two, THE BURNING CHAOS. I love that it helped me get a better feel for certain characters and the reasoning behind their actions. Have I used the word “love” enough yet?

BY THE MORNING LIGHT will be out in September. For now you can add it to your Goodreads shelves and visit the Pinterest board! And don’t forget to tell me what you think of the cover!

Cover Reveal: Nobody’s Lady

I’m so excited to share the cover for the next book in Amy McNulty’s Never Veil series, Nobody’s Lady! I think I love this one ever more than the first one. Take a look and tell me what you think!

Nobody's Lady Smaller

Gorgeous, right? I love Noll’s expression!

For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.

Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.

I’ve read this one and it’s fantastic, folks. Mark your calendars; it’s out April 12th. That’s not too far away!!

Add the book to your Goodreads page!

You can also preorder the paperback (and hold that beautiful cover in your hands and drool over it)!

Title Reveals!

Last year I published THE FADING DUSK, the first book in the Smoke and Mirrors series. This year, as long as everything goes to plan, I will be publishing the next book and a novella. Today I’m happy to announce the titles for each one!

First off, the title for the second Smoke and Mirrors book is:

THE BURNING CHAOS

Do you like it? I’m going to wait to share the blurb when I do the cover reveal in May (as it contains spoilers for book one!), but I can tell you that this book features more magic, murder, and mystery as Irina’s adventure continues in the city of Dusk. Look for it in July, and add it to your Goodreads to-read list now! You can also visit my Pinterest board for some hints as to what the book is about!

Next up we have the novella’s title:

BY THE MORNING LIGHT

I’m not going to lie; I really love this title. It fits with the other Smoke and Mirrors titles, but at the same time it’s also slightly different. Which describes BY THE MORNING LIGHT perfectly. Set in the same world as the other books, this novella features a whole new cast of characters in an entirely different city. While this is a prequel story, I feel it’s best if it’s read after THE BURNING CHAOS (but you can read them in whichever order you like. Neither spoils the other!). Both THE BURNING CHAOS and BY THE MORNING LIGHT set up book three (which does have a title, but I’m going to keep that to myself for now!), which I will be drafting soon (can’t wait!). I’m about 90% sure BY THE MORNING LIGHT will be out in September, but that could change. For now, you can find it on Goodreads! Also, don’t forget to check out its Pinterest board, which I’ve spent many hours staring at. I will definitely talk more about BY THE MORNING LIGHT in the upcoming months. It’s a story I wasn’t planning on writing, but one that I’m glad I did.

What do you think of the titles? I hope you’re as excited about these books as I am!

No, I haven’t forgotten about this blog.

WHAT? AN UPDATE? HOW CAN THAT BE?!?!

Yes, I’m fully aware that I pretty much suck when it comes to updating this blog. This is what happens when I’m writing and editing. I tend to forget about things like my blog or my Facebook page. It’s bad but it’s also good because it means I’m busy!

So what have I been up to? Earlier this year I wrote the second book in the Smoke and Mirrors series (I really need to reveal the title of that soon!). It, sadly, was not perfect (not that I expected it to be, but that would have been nice!) and required a bit of editing/deleting/rewriting and all that fun stuff. I wrote the ending three times before I got it right, but guess what? I might go back and change it again! Why? One of the things I like to do to get to know new characters is write short stories from their POVs. In the Smoke and Mirrors series, I introduce new characters in book 2 and even MORE new characters in book 3 (which is still an outline at this point!). Sometimes it’s hard for me to throw a character in the middle of another character’s story (in this case, Irina’s story). I want to know who this other character is, but it’s hard to get inside of their head when I’m writing strictly from another character’s POV. So that’s why they get their own short stories (Phil’s story in A Promise of Magic is a perfect example of this. I wrote that story BEFORE I wrote The Soul Healer, even though it takes place AFTER that novel! It really helped me get a feel for both him and Kain, which is why I didn’t have any trouble writing them in The Soul Healer. I already knew, for example, that Phil was a picky eater and that Kain liked to say foolish things.). I decided in October to write a story from the POV of  a character that will make her first appearance in book 3. It started off as a little project, but now it’s evolved into this much bigger story that’s given me a ton of new ideas for book 3. The only problem is I now have to go back and tweak some things in book 2. I don’t think it’ll be too many changes, though! It’s just a lot of work during the craziest time of the year. I’m hoping once things calm down in January I’ll be able to wrap everything up and polish the short story so it’s ready to be shared soon after I publish book 2. And then I’ll get to work on book 3, which I actually cannot wait to start writing, all because I decided to write this short story.

So that’s where I am, writing wise. I’d been hoping to write two novels this year, but I’m happy with one novel and one short story (which will hopefully not be THAT long, but who knows with me). I can’t make any promises about no longer neglecting this blog and I want to thank everyone who’s still sticking around to read my random rambles. You’re awesome.

Also, The Fading Dusk went on a blog tour! If you’re interested in reading my interviews, some excerpts from the novel, and all the lovely reviews that were posted, then check out this link!

Today I’d like to introduce author Janna Jennings!
janna
Janna is a Colorado based YA author who loves a good fairy tale. She’s married to her own real life Prince Charming, and will usually admit to being mom of three, including her incorrigible middle child, Benny. Besides wrangling her kids she can be found doing some therapeutic baking, dreaming of the ocean, and of course, curling up with a good book.
B1 Grimm Legacy
Janna is the author of A Grimm Legacy, the first book in the Grimm Tales series.

Enchanted castles and charming princes thought to exist only in stories come to life in this classically twisted fairy tale that combines the timeless quality of folktales with the challenges of the modern world.

The woods of Elorium appear ordinary to Andi… until the birds start to talk and elves answer doors. Whisked out of her world along with three strangers, Andi finds herself the reluctant guest of the perplexing millionaire, Mr. Jackson, a stranger willing to help get them home, but who’s keeping secrets of his own.
 

Discovering unexpected family connections to this fairy tale land, the group must rely on each other as they dodge evil fairies and battle giants intent on keeping them in Elorium.
 

Faced with characters short on whimsy and bent towards treachery, Andi, Quinn, Fredrick and Dylan are forced into fairy tale roles to find the home. But in Elorium, happily ever after is never guaranteed.

I love fairy tales, and this one sounds great! You can purchase A Grimm Legacy here!
Today Janna is sharing an exclusive sneak peek at her upcoming book, A Grimm Curse.

Cynthia crept past the weed-choked flowerbeds. A few roses struggled to bloom amid the neglect, but the place looked sad and forgotten. A small man-made pond sat in the shade of the near by pine trees. This is where the Wellington property ended and the forest began. Water still trickled into the pond, keeping the surface clear. Wild grasses had grown up along the edges, but it made the little spot look more natural, probably what the frog was used to.

Cynthia sat on a rusting wrought iron bench and reached into her pocket, freeing the frog. His skin felt tacky and rough. He’d been out of the water too long. She lowered him into the water.

“There you go.”

She stood up to leave. The frog seemed to shake itself out of a stooper. It kicked several times, propelling itself across the surface of the water with the awkward hind kick particular only to frogs. Rolling on its back, it sighed and said, “Ahh much better.”

Cynthia blinked hard and sat back down on the bench. The frog stroked back to her and hopped to the edge of the little pond where it sat half in, half out of the water.

“You’re not a princess, are you?” Beyond the harsh, throaty quality of its voice that was not quite human, the frog was male and hopeful.

Cynthia opened her mouth to reply and popped it back closed again. It was one thing to understand birds. Their peeps and trills seemed to translate themselves inside her head. Bird vocabulary was limited and repetitive. Frankly, they weren’t overly bright. It was not like talking to another person.

She’d heard the occasional rumor of talking animals. It wasn’t unheard of in Elorium to get advice from a fox, and there was a fairly famous troupe of singing animals that traveled around, although she had never seen them.

The frog blinked his bulbous eyes and a frown seemed to tug at his wide mouth. “Sorry, I know it can be a bit of a shock. You’ve got a surreal look on your face.”

“No, I—“ Cynthia paused and cleared her throat trying to rearrange her features into something other than stunned. “I understand birds. I just wasn’t expecting—you took me by surprise. That’s all.”

“Birds? I’ve never heard of that before.”

It was strange to watch the creature’s thin, flat lips move and words come out. It was like watching a puppeteer.

“I—“ she decided to steer this strange conversation away from herself. “What were you asking?”

“Oh.” the frog splayed his webbed toes on his right foot. “Are you a princess? I mean, I know you don’t live in a castle, but I thought perhaps you were one in hiding?” The frog had ducked his head and looked up at her out of the top of his eyes like a hopeful boy.

Cynthia felt a smile wanting to tug at her lips. “I’m not. Sorry.”

His face fell.

“I’m Cynthia.” She held out her name like some kind of pitiful offering.

“Remi.” The frog waved a half hearted webbed hand at her and sank with his chin in the water until just his mouth and eyes jutted out.

She waited a second, and when no further information was forthcoming she prodded, “So…”

Remi’s head came up slightly. “How am I a talking frog?” A half grin twisted on his face. “Sorry, this is the longest conversation I’ve had. Most people scream and run. Or try to hit me with things.” He looked up at her with an expression Cynthia couldn’t read. She didn’t know if it was the look or the fact that it was on a frog’s face that was creating the difficulty. Something moved her to bend down and hold out her hand. Remi hesitated just a second before hopping into her palm. The pads on his feet were delicate and damp. She placed him beside her on the bench and waited.

“I haven’t actually tried talking to anyone in awhile, but you seem…” here the frog appeared to be selecting the right words, “like a person to take a chance on.”

“Because I rescued you?”

“I wouldn’t say rescued—“ Remi stammered out.

A brief image came to Cynthia of an abashed young man. That smile wanted to curl her lips up again. Twice in one day. It wasn’t a problem she usually had.

“I’m not saying you didn’t help,” he added. “Can’t deny I’d gotten myself in a pickle. It wasn’t just that.” He’d turned thoughtful. “It was more a feeling you were someone who might understand.”

Look for A Grimm Curse this fall!

Don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Janna, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 8. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the indie team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!

News! News! News!

In case you didn’t see the title, I have news!

So, you know how A PROMISE OF MAGIC, the second Silver Moon Saga novella, is scheduled for January 27th, 2015? I’m going to be honest with you. I was never happy with that date. And I know you guys weren’t happy with that date, either. It was too far away, and also too close to THE SHADOW STEALER’S release date of February 27th. I always felt like there should be more time between releases, but I didn’t want to make you wait even longer for the final book, so I picked what I thought were the best possible dates.

A PROMISE OF MAGIC, like AN AUTUMN DREAM, consists of three stories. In addition to the titular story (which is told from Evan’s POV), there’s also THE FAVOR (told from Philip’s POV) and AN UNBEATABLE TEAM (told from Gabi’s POV). Unlike the final book in the series, these short stories were easy (and fun!) to write. The manuscript has been beta-read, edited, and revised, and it’s been sitting on my computer for the past few months ready to go. Waiting, and waiting, and waiting… Just like you all have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting…

So the other day I decided to ask my awesome publisher a question:

Me: Okay, you can totally say no because I know this is a crazy question, but is there any possible way we can publish my novella earlier? FEEL FREE TO SAY NO.

Her: Yeah, that’s totally cool.

Me: O________O!!!

SO GUESS WHAT?! The new publication date for A PROMISE OF MAGIC is now…. Drum roll please!

NOVEMBER 20TH, 2014!!!!!!!!!

Yes, November 20th. As in two weeks from yesterday. Or, THIRTEEN days away. No, I’m not freaking out. Why would I freak out? 😀 This is awesome news! You are getting more Silver Moon Saganess (yeah, I just made up a word) in less than two weeks!! Spread the word! Tell your friends! A PROMISE OF MAGIC is coming November 20th!! Get ready!!!

Okay, got that? Moving right along, I’d like to introduce Shay Lynam!

shay

Shay was born and raised in a small, rainy town in Washington, but now resides in another quaint, rainy town with her husband and pug-beagle mix, Lucy. When not at work, you can usually find her at home or at her favorite coffee shop, typing away on her newest novel.

And now I’ll let Shay tell you about her upcoming novel!

Hey all!

As your reward for finding me, I want to share my Peter Pan spin-off novel, Never, with you! It isn’t set to come out until November 4th but because you are awesome and participating in this crazy scavenger hunt, I thought you deserved a sneak peek. Also, because I want to get you guys extra excited about Never, I’m going to share a teaser of my book cover. My actual cover reveal isn’t until November 1st so you guys are getting an extremely exclusive first look.

First, a little about Never:

Wynn Harper spends her days trying to blend into the background. This isn’t very easy, especially being the great granddaughter of the late Wendy Darling. Wynn used to love Great Gran’s stories about her adventures in Neverland with Peter Pan and his lost boys, but that’s all they were. Just stories, right? That’s what Wynn keeps telling herself.

But then she meets Peter, the beautiful boy with a voice to match, and when he whisks her off to Neverland, Wynn knows this is no fairy tale. The lost boys are a group of rebellious ex-pirates, young Hook has a soft side, and Peter Pan isn’t as innocent as you might think.

Here’s an exclusive excerpt. When Wynn meets Peter.

“What’s it like in Neverland?” I asked after we had been flying in silence for a while. Peter’s hand tightened more around my own frozen fingers. I couldn’t feel my body anymore. I could’ve been missing both my legs and I wouldn’t even notice until we got to Neverland and I’d discover I was a couple feet shorter.

“Different,” he said looking over to meet my eyes.

“How do you mean?”

I watched as he swiveled his body and was suddenly under me, floating on his back. What would happen if I just let go of his hand? I would collide with him, he could wrap his arms around me and maybe I could lay my head on that soft orange t-shirt. I bet I’d be able to feel the ridges of his chest with my cheek. Something told me there was a body of a seventeen year old god under those clothes. Wow, maybe a dunk in that frigid ocean below would do me some good.

Peter cleared his throat and a smirk appeared on his face. He must have noticed my eyes trailing thoughtfully down his body. “It just is,” he finally said and laid my hand on his shirt so it was flat under his. Yep, I could feel the hard lines of his chest. “You’ll see for yourself soon.”

“Soon?” I asked giving him a confused look. “I thought the saying goes ‘straight on till morning.’ It isn’t even eleven yet.”

Peter tipped his head back so he was looking in the direction we were headed. “Think again.”

I lifted my head and saw the horizon glowing with morning light. The moon was still high and bright, the stars were still shining brilliantly, yet the sky down far ahead was beginning to fade to a pale blue as the sun slowly rose. In the distance I could make out a break in the horizon. Dips and peaks made up of mountains and valleys rose up from the water like a tiny hopeful beat on a heart monitor with a dead line. 

Neverland.

And finally, a sneak peek at my beautiful cover, made by Kellie Dennis with Book Cover by Design (bookcoverbydesign.co.uk):

You can pre-order Never in e-book form on Amazon.com here. Again, it’ll be available on Amazon in paperback and e-book form on November 4th for just $2.99!
