Sworn To Raise Cover Reveal

Image
Today I'm participating in the Cover Reveal for Sworn to Raise by Terah Edun.




Sworn to Raise by Terah Edun (Courtlight #1) - Publication date: March 15th, 2013 Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the  kingdom. But beneath her kingdom’s seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder—intensified by the five year anniversary of the soulbond  initiations.

Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companion’s Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she’d never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.

But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.

This sensational series debut melds intricate story…

Happy Holidays!

Image
Year 2012 is almost at an end and so much has been accomplished yet so much left undone. When I started this blog I thought I'd have a book out by now but I don't. Yet I have no regrets because I have learnt a lot thanks to you readers and blogger friends. In 2013 I plan to release a few of my self-published titles and continue whipping my WIPS into agent and publisher worthy shape.



But enough about me and writing. Christmas is just around the corner and so is New Years. I wish everyone a happy holiday season. Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Despite all the recent tragedies lets give thanks for our blessings, others and pray/hope for better for the less fortunate whether it's for others or ourselves.

Please Note: I won't be posting any new post until January 1. But I have a few automated posts from book tours left in December. I'll still be around checking out your blogs but I won't be posting new content outside the following scheduled post f…

Spellbound Book Blitz and Giveaway

Image
Today I'm presenting the Spellbound Book Blitz as a tour host for Xpresso Book Tours. There is also a giveaway which you can enter by clicking the link at the bottom of this post.




Spellbound Book 1: Entangled - February 20th 2012Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.

Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.

The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

While this won't be my official cover for Sacrifice Her. I thought you guys would still like to see this. Let me know what you think. Cover Reveal for Sacrifice Her is still scheduled for late January 2013.


Fang Girl Promo Blitz and Giveaway

Image
Today I'm taking part in the Fang Girl Promo Blitz organised by Xpresso Tours.



Fang Girl by Helen Keeble - September 11th 2012 / HarperTeenThings That Are Destroying Jane Greene’s Undead Social Life Before It Can Even Begin:

1) A twelve-year-old brother who’s convinced she’s a zombie.
2) Parents who are begging her to turn them into vampires.
3) The pet goldfish she accidentally turns instead.
4) Weird superpowers that let her rip the heads off of every other vampire she meets.(Sounds cool, but it doesn’t win you many friends.)
5) A pyschotic vampire creator who’s using her to carry out a plan for world domination.

And finally:
6) A seriously ripped vampire hunter who either wants to stake her or make out with her. Not sure which.

Being an undead, eternally pasty fifteen-year-old isn’t quite the sexy, brooding, angst-fest Jane always imagined....

Helen Keeble’s riotous debut novel combines the humor of Vladimir Tod with Ally Carter’s spot-on teen voice. With a one-of-a-kind vampir…

Today I'm giving my good blogger friend Kelley Lynn a hand with introducing her upcoming novel Fraction of Stone across the blogopshere.


Fraction of Stone by Kelley Lynn

Release Date: March 21st, 2013 bySapphire Star Publishing
Genre: YA Fantasy

Book Description:

Wind tunnels, torrential rains and earthquakes tear apart Casden. The cause of the world’s imbalance is unknown, but the mounting occurrences suggest there’s little time before life ceases to exist. Rydan Gale and Akara Nazreth are the only humans with the ability to wield magic. The tattoo on their necks and the discovery of an ancient book, dictate they are the key to the world’s survival. But the greatest obstacle for saving mankind isn’t the bizarre creatures, extreme betrayals and magic-fearing men hunting them. It’s that Akara doesn’t believe the world is worth saving.  Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16160501-fraction-of-stone

Snow White Sorrow Book Blitz

Image
Today I'm taking part in the Snow White Sorrow Book Blitz as a tour host for Xpresso Tours. I've read four of the six prequels to this upcoming book and will recommend everyone to read them and await this amazing upcoming book by the talented Cameron Jace.




Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace: February 2013 / Akmal Eldin Farouk Ali Shebl  --
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?
Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

Cheers, Alex Cavanaugh Fest

Image
On Monday December 10 I finally buckled and decided to take part in the blogfest. Moving my scheduled Fang Girl Book Blitz post to Thursday I now write this with the knowledge that everyone will know I'm probably the last person to sign on. Don't ask me why I didn't sooner. I was thinking that like a thousand people are already in this and I have just started my book touring duties for Xpresso Tours and company. But Alex has been such a driving force for so many of us. How could I not take part?


What does Alex look like?

Ninja: Mysterious man in black with his katana and ever vigilant wife by his side.

Regular: Tall, handsome every man.

Who could play Alex in a documentary?

Umm... Robert Carlyle? Yeah him.





















Who does Alex remind you of?

Kakashi from Naruto. A kind bad ass ninja whose face is hidden and gives advice. Totally Alex.

The Mating Game Bloghop: Escaping Wonderland

Image
Today Victoria Smith and company are hosting The Mating Game Bloghop. I'll be using my WIP Escaping Wonderland. How this came out is a funny story. I started Nano with Gold who was a stripper running away to Wonderland along with Wolf and The Mad Hatter. But due to a fall, illness and computer trouble I had a lot of drawbacks and ended up not reaching my Nano goal. During that time I started to realize though that there were things I didn't like about the story including the fact that Hatter's issues were eclipsing Gold's. So by December I decided to make some changes and in a few days I decided to split the idea into two different novels. Escaping Wonderland and Gold. Gold now had Gold (Goldilocks) running away but not to Wonderland and Escaping Wonderland gets Hatter but it's his son who is on the run with Alice.



Now back to the bloghop. I will be using my starring characters Alice and the Hatter's son Max Hatter to answer the judge's five questions. They…

Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four by Nya Jade - October 30th 2012/Dreamwell PublishingThe students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.

As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’…
