Amazing Aurora Sky Covers, Celebrate Meme and Big Dreams

I'm excited to share with you the covers for the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter Series by Nikki Jefford. She is also author of Entangled: Spellbound Book One, another series. You can read the details of the Phat Puppy photo shoot that helped bring Nikki's character to life here

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it's to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn't hurt either. Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora's life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter in Alaska. Basically she's a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis before she has to finish the hand. Now Aurora's only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire. And if he's a vampire, will she be forced to kill him?

AURORA SKY: VAMPIRE HUNTER is the first in a YA Mature/New Adult paranormal fantasy series.

Love Bites. Probation sucks. Thanks to Dante's recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen. Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane's tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings. When a member of the unit's team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer's much closer to home.

Nikki married Sebastien, the love of her life, while working as a teaching assistant at a high school in Amiens, France during the 1999-2000 school year. They now reside in the not-so-tropical San Juan Islands, 70 miles northeast of Forks, Wash. in a town without a single traffic light.

This month I'm happy to still have life despite being sick, all the support from my online and offline friends and the prizes I won including books and paypal cash.

Sadly I have to delay the release of my AYA site until November 8. I'm also working on the idea for my first two novels in the AYA genre. That's all I have to report for now. Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Wonderful job Nikki - love anything set in Alaska, will definitely check this out! San Juan's are lovely!

    So glad to hear you're feeling better Sheena!

  2. Sounds like a great series, Nikki, congratulations.
    I'm always up for celebrating friendship. Best wishes Sheena-Kay.

  3. Those are some amazing covers. The artist did a great job.

  4. Congratulations on all the prizes you've won, you deserve them :)

  5. I bow to your greatness and to those awesome covers! Celebrations all around. :)

  6. Well, I hope you have the best success with your goals! I'm having some writer's block lately (my usual situation) but am a tad optimistic about doing NaNoWriMo this year. Plus, my 'special needs' kitten is well enough to be getting in to trouble. Yay, kitten!

    Good luck on your goals, and God bless.

  7. I'm still sorry that you had to delay the release, but you do need to do what's best for your health. Good luck with your AYA projects. Still praying for you. :-)

  8. Very cool stuff, Nikki, and congrats!! Sheena-Kay, I really, really hope things look up for you soon. I'm thinking of you.

  9. I love the premise of Aurora Sky. Wish I'd thought of it. Congrats Nikki :)

    I hope you feel better soon, Sheena-Kay (((hugs)))

  10. Life is a good thing to celebrate. Enjoy it.

  11. Great covers and premises, Nikki :D

  13. hi, sounds like an exciting series. Hope all goes well with your new site. Let me know when it is up. :)

  14. Very cool covers! Thanks for spotlighting these Sheena-kay!

  17. Awesome cover.

    Congrats on winning some prizes.

  18. These covers are beyond awesome!

  19. Those book covers are awesome!

    At least you have an update, rather than just "Nahhh ... got nothin'." hehe.

  20. The girl in those covers looks eerily similar to the one cast to play the dead girl in the movie "The Lovely Bones." Great covers by the way.

  21. Perfect reads for this time of year!

  22. Oh my goodness! Both of these sound awesome. Hey, get feeling better, eh?

  23. Rocking covers, Nikki! Sound like awesome reads, too! :)

  24. It sounds really good! I like the cover art also. We both have the same names for our leading characters XD My main character name is also Aurora. :)
