I’m in Love With This Cover…

Today I have a very special cover to share with you… 💙✨

Brooke Riley is finishing up her dystopian trilogy with the final book Here We Stand!

Before I show you the gorgeousness, here’s the synopsis.

Whose side are you on?

War is on the horizon. The resistance is at its weakest. Peter, now forced to be a soldier for the government, tries to feed information to Andre. But when it becomes too dangerous to hide what he’s doing from the watchful eyes of the guards— and Evan— he must decide what he’s willing to risk for the rebellion.

Raegan is fighting hard for healing— physically and emotionally. After losing Peter, her entire world has shifted. But she’s determined now more than ever to get stronger and fight for the truth she believes in. But the battle to heal isn’t easy. She’s faced with a choice; give up, or fight?

A couple of years later, Raegan’s and Peter’s worlds collide once more. As everything is falling apart at the seams around them, they have to decide whose side they’re on. Everything they’ve ever known hangs in the balance.

The gripping finale to the How We Rise trilogy!

And now for the cover…

Prepare yourself…

3…

2…

…1,

Voila!

Okay, but the tree roots, the lighting, the silhouettes. 👏👏 I am so intrigued, and I can’t wait to binge this series when it’s complete. 💙

Something Old, New, and Very Blue (Kiera Cover Reveal!)

Something Old, New, and Very Blue (Kiera Cover Reveal!)

3/16. Today’s date. I chose it for the cover reveal before I really looked at the number written out, but when I did, I was kinda delighted.

3/16 happens to be the address for one of the most famous Bible passages on love, and since that’s really what my book is all about, I thought it was a pretty fun nod from God. 😉

I seriously have been sooooo chomping at the bit to get to share this cover with you all. My designer (Perry Kirkpatrick who also designed the first edition) did an amazing job, and I really think she captured the spirit of the book perfectly. 🙌🙌

(It’s also going to look SO GOOD in hardcover. 😍)

*rubs hands together* *tries not to look crazy* *fails*

Ready, set?

EEEeeeeeeek! The birds, the fonts, the whispy bangs, the TEXTURE, that little hint of dystopian grunge… 😁😁🤩 I’m. In. LOVE.

Just for fun, here are two quote graphics I made to celebrate.

(New) Synopsis:

Kiera’s life is pretty simple—garden, hang out with her best friend, babysit little Jade, and finish up homeschool highschool. But a global war and mandatory draft turn her eighteenth birthday into a nightmare.

Brennan, Jade’s adoptive dad, offers his last name and exemption status, leaving Kiera to question everything she’s ever thought about love. Even worse, she might actually be starting to have feelings for him.

Life settles into a routine before shattering again, and Kiera is left with only one question… If God truly loves her, why is this happening?

Limited edition hardcover includes exclusive bonus content.

Releasing in hardcover and ebook on 5/11/2022!

Hardcovers bundles are available for pre-order here.

So there you go! That’s all the deets. 😁 Thanks for sharing this moment with me. 💙

Another Second Edition (What?) + Cover Reveal Sign-Ups!

Another Second Edition (What?) + Cover Reveal Sign-Ups!

Publishing my novel Kiera was a dream come true, and lately, I’ve been dreaming up more for it again. 💗

I already mentioned a sequel idea, but I’m ready to share the project that’s been in the “research and development” stage for a couple months now.

Ready, set?

Kiera, second edition with minor edits (it seriously needs a character guide #lessonlearned), limited edition HARDCOVER FORMAT (complete with dust jackets *chef’s kiss*), new bonus content, and a really, really gorgeous cover which I happen to be finalizing today. 💗

I’ve been having fun learning the ins and outs of hardcovers, a.k.a. watching YouTube videos and messaging veteran authors (you know who you are, and thank you!) and reading numerous articles.

I’ve written my author’s note, added the second edition to Goodreads, and will soon be marking up a copy for edits. 😉

I’m absolutely obsessed with the work my cover designer is doing, and I think you all are going to LOVE it. 😍😍 I’m sharing the cover on March 16th, and if you’d like to help out, you can sign up here.

It’s getting reallll! Thanks for being a part of this journey with me, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

The Dreamiest Cover Reveal Ever <3

The Dreamiest Cover Reveal Ever <3

Sometimes I just see a cover and immediately fall in love. Whimsical lines, an intriguing title, beautiful colors, and a unique element I’ve never seen before.

That’s how it’s been for me with the cover of Amie Woleslagle’s debut poem collection, Fifteen.

When she announced the cover reveal for her next book, naturally titled Sixteen, I jumped on board because I knew she was going to have something equally creative and lovely in store.

Take a look at this… 💗

I’m drawn in immediately with the calming colors, the unique balloon, and my wishlist just got longer. 😉

Congrats, Amie! 💙

Love and Memory Cover Reveal (+Happy Deals)

Love and Memory Cover Reveal (+Happy Deals)

I read Water Princess, Fire Prince by Kendra Ardnek in it’s first edition cover and loved it to pieces, then absolutely gawked over the new cover for it and the second one, so today I’m particularly excited to share the cover for the third book with you. ❤

First, a snippet from the book. 😉

It wasn’t far to Petra’s room where he flicked on the light. There she was, sprawled across her bed, a pillow hugged to her chest. Reuben smiled to himself as he walked over to the bed, sat down at her side, took her hand, and closed his eyes.

Immediately, he plunged into her dream. The reality of her bedroom stripped away into the castle where they’d lived for thirty years in Rizkaland. She stood in the courtroom, their fellow kings and queens around them, the people spread before them. But everything wavered with a strange, filmy quality. Only she was solid.

So it always was when one walked waking into the other’s dream.

If you’ve read the first two books, you know this is going to be hard and lovely. 😭🥰

Now take a look at the cover…

When a Queen forgets,

Her enemies rejoice in her weakness.

But when the Queen remembers,

They tremble in fear.

When a King loves,

His country rejoices with him.

But when that love is broken.

The land is broken, too.

Can Water and Fire join again?

Can Love and Memory be restored?

They spent years in Rizkaland. They ruled the land, forged friendships, built families, and made it their home. But then it was time to return to Earth, and their former lives just don’t fit anymore. Clara and Andrew struggle to reevaluate their priorities when hundreds of miles separate them. Reuben and Petra are lost as they seek a balance between their old friendship and their Rizkan marriage. And Ashna and Noraeto never planned to return, so what life is there for them on Earth?

When the unthinkable happens and a new enemy arises, they’re all thrown back into Rizkaland, into a young prince’s rise to power and struggle to build alliances for his kingdom. But they no longer belong in their other world, either.

Are good memories too much to bear?”

A New Cover for My First Book!

A New Cover for My First Book!

Guys, I am sooo excited to share a brand new cover with you all today. 😉 It’s doubly exciting for me because this cover belongs to the new edition of my very first book. ❤

After six years (and some increasingly bad misprints 😛 ), I decided it was time for a change.

Perry Elisabeth did an AMAZING job capturing the spirit of the story, and I couldn’t be happier. 😀

Ready?

❤ ❤

About the book

Dust to Flame Cover Reveal!

Dust to Flame Cover Reveal!

I’ve fallen down on the job of keeping track of one of my favorite authors, apparently. When Hope Ann announced her upcoming book Dust to Flame, I was surprised and delighted. 😉

Today I get to share the (gorgeous) cover with y’all!

I’m really fan of the fonts. They look as if they’ve been intricately carved out. I also love the faded arches in the background, and I’m very curious about the title.

Okay, but I should probably just show it to you. XD

Here you go…

Synopsis:
When you defeat everything life hurls at you, it’s a perfectly legitimate move to rub your conquest in the faces of those who sneered at your suffering.

Rafe, a former street-lad who clawed his way to the glittering life of a story-actor, has been waiting. But from the moment he sprung from his carriage into the gritty dust of Cainth, life has not gone Rafe’s way.

Unexpectedly dragged into a web of greed, treachery, and stolen rift powers, Rafe intends to do what he has always done. Survive.

At least that was the plan before he accidentally protected a child.

Before he accidentally gained the powers of an immortal.

And before he caught himself accidentally slipping toward the deadliest mistake possible.

The mistake of letting one’s self care for another.

My Favorite Cover Reveal (Ever)

My Favorite Cover Reveal (Ever)

Cover reveal todaaaaayyyy!!! ❤

Early last year, Sarah Grace Grzy published her debut novella Live Without You. I got to beta-read/review the book and interview her, which was quite a lot of fun, so when I heard she needed people to help with a cover reveal I was excited.

And then it hit my inbox.

❤ ❤ ❤

I kinda geeked out. It’s seriously one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen, and I totally wasn’t ready for it. 😉

Are you ready? 😀

Look…

Isn’t it gorgeous?!! There is so much going on in this cover, but I think my favorite elements are the dimension and little details of the silhouettes and that lovely shooting star. Also, THE COLORS. This one is a going to be a beauty in paperback, for sure. ❤

Here’s a nice 3D mockup to give you the idea. 😉

Okay, I’ll stop drooling over it now and give you the synopsis and cool things like that…

Never Say Goodbye by Sarah Grace Grzy

Genre: Contemporary // Romance // Inspirational

Release date: Spring 2020

They say time heals all wounds. But he was finding it a poor painkiller.

Tyler Collens has seen grief and loss in his years of experience as a paramedic—but he never expected it to touch his life in such a personal way. The death of his wife eighteen months ago shook his steady world and changed him in more ways than he can count. Time and routine have steadied his feet, and he looks toward the future as he raises his infant daughter—but the past has a tighter grip on him than he knows. 

Alyvia Emmerson has never been certain of who she is or where she belongs. Her dad’s abandonment as a teen broke a fragile piece of her heart, but ten years later, she has moved on. Living on her own, she at last has a project to devote herself to: revitalizing a shabby bookstore. But she didn’t count on her dream job revealing the shattered pieces of herself she thought mended long ago.

In this sophomore novella featuring beloved characters from Live Without You, Sarah Grace Grzy explores themes of grief and hope in a story that touches both the heart and spirit.” (from Goodreads)

Congratulations to Sarah Grace on her upcoming release and having one of the most beautiful book covers. Ever. ❤

What do you think of it? Anyone who’s read LWY, are you excited that Tyler has his own book? 😀
