Cover Reveal – INIQUITY (The Ascent, Book One) by Melody Winter

Publication date: October 25th, 2016

Genre: New Adult, Dark Romantic Fantasy

Book Blurb:

Athena Harrow is about to turn twenty-one, but there will be no celebration. What is there to celebrate when the world is ruled by demons?

She hates the darkness the demons brought with them and longs for the light to return to the world—a world she only vaguely remembers. The people in her forest village blindly accept the life the demons forced upon them, even tolerating the yearly ascension ceremony where all the girls who have turned twenty-one are either sent away to serve the Master Demon or left in the village and forced to procreate.

But Paymon, the assigned village demon, selects a different role for Athena, a role that pits her against the village. While she adapts to her new life, Erebus, a younger, more powerful demon, arrives, and Athena must play a dangerous game with his emotions in return for information about the demon’s reign of darkness.

As Athena’s dreams of restoring the light begin to fade, her life with Erebus takes an unexpected turn, and this time it’s her life being put to the test.

Set in the forest around Buttercrambe in North Yorkshire, England, INIQUITY explores the frightening, darker side of romance and the uncontrolled emotions it can unleash.

FMIYD Cover LGjpg

They may have won the first battle, but the Apocalypse has just begun.

Five weeks have passed since the battle that left Rome and Columbus in ruins. Sheltered in the hidden city of Caelum, Daniel and Kayla train alongside over one hundred Magus and Protectors, hoping that their unified ranks will be enough to take down their greatest threat yet: Richard, his followers, and his horde of Nightmares. Then a fallen comrade is returned to Caelum with a message carved into his chest and a note referencing the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and Daniel knows their time for training is over.

Finally understanding Richard’s plans for Kayla and the three other Magus born on Halloween, Daniel and the rest of Caelum’s volunteers scout the U.S. in a desperate attempt to stop their enemy before he can unleash his first Horseman. But when massive attacks claim thousands of lives, people all over the world begin to fall ill—including those Daniel and Kayla care about the most.

With the Horseman of Pestilence released, Daniel knows it’s time to step aside and let Kayla take the lead. Only she has the power to rival her father’s. But when Richard’s plot turns out to be darker than they imagined, their fight is met with more death and destruction—and an enemy who might be unbeatable, after all.

What is speculative fiction? Tara Tyler explains. And see the fabulous cover for Pop Travel!

Thanks for letting me spend some time at your blog today, Elsie!

speculative fiction!

Elsie and I are both published through the wonderful Curiosity Quills Press. When folks ask me about my publisher, I tell them we are a small but growing force and we specialize in Speculative Fiction. Most people just nod and smile when they hear that and don’t have a clue what Speculative Fiction is. Well, that’s what I’m going to talk to you all about today!

Speculative Fiction is a broad literary genre encompassing any fiction with supernatural, fantastical, or futuristic elements. The popularity of the term is sometimes attributed to Robert Heinlein, who referenced it in 1947 in an editorial essay, although there are prior mentions of speculative fiction, or its variant “speculative literature” -.Wikipedia

Movies and Books that popped up for Speculative Fiction were: A Handmaid’s Tale, Lord of the Rings, Brave New World, Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, and Farenheit 451

TV Tropes said Speculative Fiction was also a “backronym” for SF. They define it as science fiction and fantasy and everything in between. I like that one best and I hope I made it clearer what it speculative fiction means!

Elsie and I fit right into CQ Press. She writes about a teenage grim reaper and my two series are a futuristic sci fi thriller and an MG fantasy.

Thanks again, Elsie for helping me show off POP TRAVEL’s new cover – it’s hot! And the re-release has a sneak peek at the first chapter of SIMULATION which comes out Sept 14th!

Stop by and see the gorgeous cover to LINK by Summer Wier

link-final-front
For seventeen-year-old Kira, there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than being surrounded by friends and huddled beside a campfire deep in the woods. And with a birthday in the peak of summer, that includes late night swims under the stars.

Or at least, it used to.

Kira’s relaxing contemplation of the universe is interrupted when a piece of it falls, colliding with her and starting a chain of events that could unexpectedly lead to the one thing in her life that’s missing—her father.

Tossed into a pieced-together world of carnivals and gypsies, an old-fashioned farmhouse, and the alluring presence of a boy from another planet, Kira discovers she’s been transported to the center of a black hole, and there’s more to the story than science can explain. She’s now linked by starlight to the world inside the darkness. And her star is dying.

If she doesn’t return home before the star’s light disappears and her link breaks, she’ll be trapped forever. But she’s not the only one ensnared, and with time running out, she’ll have to find a way to save a part of her past and a part of her future, or risk losing everything she loves.
Dreamy, fluid, and beautiful, LINK pairs the mystery of science fiction with the minor-key melody of a dark fantasy, creating a tale that is as human as it is out of this world.

Summer Wier Author PhotoAbout The Author:

Summer Wier grew up spending Saturdays with a maxed out library card and her nose in a book. But as much as she loved reading, and even writing, both took the back seat when it came to career choices. With her sights set on law school, corporate greatness, and even a hankering to become the first female president, she set off to conquer the world. As life would have it, though, she didn’t attend law school, nor did she become president (although, one day, your vote may be appreciated), finding her strengths, instead, in accounting and business management. After finishing her MBA, she revived her love for reading and began writing with dreams of finishing a book of her own. When Summer isn’t working, reading, or writing, she’s trying to keep up with two energetic girls and her husband, and dreaming of the mountains of Montana.

LINK is her debut young adult sci-fi novel, the first in THE SHADOW OF LIGHT trilogy.

Jared’s determined to protect his fiancée from the people milling in the shadows, but good intentions only go so far. When Savannah learns the truth he’s desperately trying to keep from her, their future together begins to unravel. How can she trust him when he’s lying to her?

All Falls Down

When Savannah Martin walks in on her abusive boyfriend and her best friend in bed together, she thinks life can’t possibly get any worse. And then she wakes up in a hospital in Italy, scared and alone. With nowhere left to go, Savannah runs to the family who took her in when her mother abandoned her as a teenager.
But things aren’t as simple as they were then.
For starters, two years of constant emotional abuse has broken Savannah in ways she’s not sure can be repaired. And patriarch Matthew Talbot has been murdered, leaving his eldest daughter, Lexi, in charge of a global non-profit and her younger sisters.
Jared Corbit, Lexi’s gorgeous boyfriend, is the only thing standing between her and whoever murdered her father. That doesn’t stop Savannah from falling in love with him. She knows it’s wrong, but she just can’t stay away from him when he makes he feel like no one else ever has before.
Finding out his relationship with Lexi is a ruse should make things easier, but when the truth is finally revealed, Savannah’s fragile world threatens to fall apart. There’s a murderer on the loose, and he’s gunning for the only family she has. To save their lives, she and Jared will be forced to make a decision that just might destroy her completely.
How is she supposed to let the man she loves be with another woman?

Bloomsbury Spark
Summary from Goodreads:
Senior Year. 
Middle of nowhere. 

What’s the new girl to do?

For Piper Marks, the answer is simple. She’s determined to have her photography
rock the cover of National Geographic someday, and moving to Clarkton, Iowa for
her last year of high school is not going to stop her. Even if her usual subjects
have changed from bright lights and skyscrapers to fields, cows…and more
fields. 
But when photographer at the local paper quits in a huff, she steps into his
spot. Her new job keeps Piper busy capturing tackles, and zooming in on first
downs and end zone dances, not to mention putting her directly in the path of
varsity football star Les Williams IV. Her new friends warn her off, but she
can’t resist the pull she feels toward this mysterious country boy. But this
small town is keeping a secret, and it’s one that could destroy any chance they
have to be together. 
It’s up to Piper to decide what to do with the distorted truth. Can she risk
exposing her heart? It might be worth it, ’cause Les is about to change her
world from black and white to fully saturated color.

Cover reveal for The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly

The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly 

Release Date: 09/01/15

Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:

Gramps always said that when the

crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as

silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground with

the unmistakable purple of a foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock

town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.

I work at Gramps’s diner, and the

cakes―the entitled rich kids who vacation here―make our lives hell. My best

friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me. Only Alex has changed. He’s

almost like a stranger now. I can’t figure it out…or why I’m having

distinctly more-than-friend feelings for him. Ones I shouldn’t be having.

Then one of the cakes disappears.

 

When she turns up murdered, a

foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen

with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy,

Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it’s up to us to prove his innocence and

uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I’ve ever known

about myself—and Alex.
