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.

The Silver Moon Saga is back!

I’ve been hinting that I have some Silver Moon Saga related news, and I can FINALLY share it today!

The Silver Moon Saga has gotten a makeover, with brand new covers that I am absolutely in love with. Not only that, but the insides have been reformatted and they look amazing. Also, for the first time ever, two short stories that I wrote for the YA Scavenger Hunt will now be available to buy. “Roast Chicken,” a story told from Rafe’s POV, is included with THE SIGHT SEER, and “Our Moment,” a story told from Kain’s POV, is included with THE SOUL HEALER. Exciting, right?

So, are you ready to see the fabulous covers, designed by MakeReady Designs?

As you can see, it’s completely different from the original cover (which I’ll always love) and features a scene from the book. Isn’t it super creepy and awesome? I especially love Gabi’s glowing hands! Also, check out that demon behind her!

The ebook is available on Amazon! Free if you have Kindle Unlimited!

Next up is THE SOUL HEALER! Here we have another scene in the book, featuring Gabi in Manhattan. And that creepy demon is back, lurking behind her.

The ebook is available on Amazon! Free if you have Kindle Unlimited!

And the final book in the series, THE SHADOW STEALER. It’s Gabi in Bryant Park, aka my favorite place in NYC. The details are great in this one, and yes, there’s that pesky demon again. If you’ve read this book, then you know exactly which demon that is.

The ebook is available on Amazon! Free if you have Kindle Unlimited!

And of course we can’t forget the novellas!

They’re a little different, but it makes sense since the novellas are different from the novels. The flowers are such a nice touch, especially since Gabi loves gardening. I love how dark these covers are.

An Autumn Dream is available on Amazon!

A Promise of Magic is available on Amazon!

(Print links for all the books to come!)

But wait, that’s not all! In addition to these new covers, I’m happy to announce that I will be publishing a BRAND NEW Silver Moon Saga short story. YES, you read that right. A new adventure for Gabi, set four months after the epilogue of THE SHADOW STEALER.

Here’s the cover:

Cats_Rats_and_Cowboy_Hats (3).jpg

And the blurb:

Gabi’s demon hunting days may be over, but that doesn’t mean her life has calmed down. When her sister, Chloe, walks in on Gabi and Rafe doing some hardcore making out in the pantry, Gabi must submit to her darling little sister’s demands or risk Chloe tattling and Gabi being grounded until she’s sixty.

Gabi spends a week in agony waiting for her sister to cash in on her favor. But what Chloe wants is even worse than Gabi imagined:

She has to cover one of Chloe’s shifts at the Convenience Corral.

Set four months after The Shadow Stealer’s epilogue, Cats, Rats, and Cowboy Hats is a hilarious new story that reunites readers with their beloved Silver Moon Saga characters.

Inspired by my trip to Texas, I had such a blast writing this one. It doesn’t have an official release date, but it’ll be out as an ebook soon, I promise! In the meantime, add it to your to-read list on Goodreads!In the meantime, add it to your to-read list on Goodreads!

Phew, there’s a lot going on, right? New covers, a new story… I hope you’re as excited about this as I am!

Cover Reveal: A Promise of Magic

So as you all know from this post, A PROMISE OF MAGIC is coming out NEXT WEEK. This means things are moving along very quickly now and it’s time for a cover reveal!

But should I post the blurb first? I don’t know. You guys probably don’t even read anything that comes before the cover. Am I right? Are you even reading this? Hello?

Okay, fine, I’ll share the cover first, and then the blurb. Without further ado, I present to you the gorgeous cover of A PROMISE OF MAGIC:

MELISSA2 (Medium)

How beautiful is this cover? I’m absolutely in love with it, as I’m sure the rest–

Evan: HEY. Wait a second here!

Evan?!? Where did you come from?

Evan: Sweetheart, I’ve been here the entire time. Watching and waiting for the cover of MY book to be shared. But what the heck is this?! Why is GABI on the cover and not me?

Gabi: Duh, I’m the main character.

Evan: You’re the main character of the other books, but not this one. A PROMISE OF MAGIC is MY story. Just read the blurb!

Oh, right. The blurb I was about to share until you rudely decided to hijack my blog…

As a child growing up in California, Evan Underwood only has a basic knowledge of Silver Moon, the organization that keeps the world safe from demons. After accidentally setting his parents’ house on fire with magic, he’s sent to the New York Silver Moon HQ to learn how to control his powers. Frustrated by his teacher’s refusal to show him anything beyond magical theory, Evan decides it’s time to take matters into his own hands. But teaching himself magic isn’t as easy as Evan imagined, and it’s during one of these practice sessions that he’s discovered by Alexandra Chen, a strange girl Evan finds both frustrating and alluring. Making a promise to show Alex magic, Evan is determined to live up to her expectations, even if it means breaking a few rules in the process. But when things backfire, Evan must rely on his friends to help free him from the clutches of a new, sinister character.

A Promise of Magic spans the course of eight years, and readers will delight in the appearances of old friends and new characters as Evan navigates his life through the busy streets of New York. With two bonus stories that set up The Shadow Stealer, the final book in the series, Silver Moon Saga fans are in for a real treat.

Evan: SEE?! Gabi’s name isn’t even mentioned in the blurb! I’m the star, so where’s the cover featuring my gorgeous face?!

I did make you this one yesterday:

promisefakecoverEvan: Okay, let’s use that one.

Gabi: NO WAY. I don’t care if the majority of the book is about you, my face is still going on the cover! You owe me, Evan!

Evan: Owe you? Why the heck would I owe you?

Gabi: *throws a copy of THE SOUL HEALER at Evan*

Evan: Oh. Right. Maybe I do owe you.

Gabi: *beams*

Is everything squared away, you two? Can I have my blog back now?

Evan: Yeah, yeah, fine. Whatever. Let Gabi have her covers. We all know the real reason why I’m not on it.

Gabi: I’m almost afraid to ask.

Evan: I’m too hot, of course. Girls and boys alike would faint if they feasted their eyes on my beautiful face for too long. It would cause a worldwide panic!

Gabi: Sure, that’s exactly why. Keep telling yourself that.

Evan: It’s true!

AHEM. *pushes them out of here* Sorry about that. I hope you enjoyed today’s cover reveal, and remember, only ELEVEN more days until A PROMISE OF MAGIC!!

To My Fellow Readers.

Lately, I’ve been wanting to read more YA Contemporary. I don’t know where this feeling came from; I think it’s partly series fatigue (as in, I’m in the middle of reading 32098324 series and I just want a stand-alone every now and again, you know?), and partly guilt for ignoring this genre for so long. When I pick new novels to read, I always gravitate towards historical, fantasy, fairy-tales, paranormals, or dystopians. I like magic and swords and all that fun stuff, but it’s time for a change. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about what’s out there, which is why I’m calling for YOU, fellow bloggers, to recommend some titles. Tell me anything because chances are, I probably haven’t read it.

Come on, throw some titles my way!
