Happy Cover Reveal for The She-Wolf of Kanta

Happy cover reveal to the first book in The Wolves of Kanta series: The She-Wolf of Kanta!

This book has had such a long history, being the first physical solo book of mine to ever hold in my hands. After getting the rights back after its small press run, I wanted to really give this story the artistic attention it deserved. I have to say that Harvest Moon Designs absolutely blew me out of the water with their talent at bringing to life not just this cover, but the next four books in the series. I wish I could show them all to you now, but you’ll just have to wait until closer to release dates!

This edition of The She-Wolf of Kanta has been expanded from the previous version, and I’m working on getting a brand new expanded map as well since the world of Kanta gets more fleshed out and built up over these books. I’m super proud of this release and I’m excited to be able to share my second self-published book!

The She-Wolf of Kanta is currently available to pre-order wherever ebooks are sold, and will soon be available as a paperback and hardback.

The She-Wolf of Kanta

Book 1 of the Wolves of Kanta Series

The daughter of a werewolf hunter will become so much more.

Thirteen-year-old Mercy Pinkerton thought her days of cleaning house, fixing the barricade, and wiring electric prongs were over. She would finally get to train to be a werewolf hunter, what she has always wanted.

She doesn’t know that there are worse monsters in Kanta than the werewolves that plague Kanta each night. Danger lurks around every corner. She’ll have to avoid her father’s temper and follow his orders, even if it means risking her life.

It is supposed to be Mercy’s big day, but will take a drastic turn for the worse. She’ll have to keep her wits about her, remember her training, and prepare for the ultimate test of bravery if she hopes to survive.

The She-Wolf of Kanta is a re-release of the acclaimed novella, now expanded into Book 1 in The Wolves of Kanta series.

Happy Cover Reveal to The Impostor And Other Dark Tales

Happy cover reveal day to this gorgeous collection of short stories! Divided into sections for the beautiful and the bizarre, the tales range from dark fantasy with sorcery and mermaids, to horror with monsters and unnatural animals. Putting this together has been a labor of love over the last year, and I’ve had the benefit of getting to work with incredible people throughout the process.

The cover itself was created by Shivana Brhamadat at SinsValentine.com. The lettering was done by my sister, Kelley M. Frank at MorbidSmile.com. It’s amazing seeing the talents of two artists combining together to make sure a beautiful piece.

This collection is available to pre-order today! Paperbacks will be coming soon!

The Impostor and Other Dark Tales

The beautiful and the bizarre

Something watches from the corner of the room, peeking through a crack, existing within an impossible space—what does it want?

The ghost of a lover returns at the end of a lifetime, carrying a dark secret—what will she say?

A woman struggling with identity finds herself in the arms of a dangerous woman with a mysterious curse—what will she find?

The beautiful and the bizarre exist side by side in this collection of fantastic and strange tales by prolific short story author, Marlena Frank. From dark fantasy stories of sharp-toothed mermaids and bewitched sorceresses to horror stories with ferocious bird beasts and golden-eyed monsters that live in the peripheral of human existence, these stories bring to life the creatures that haunt the nightmare world.

From heart-rending to heart-pounding, these tales will linger long after reading them.

Creeping onto bookshelves on September 28th.

Cover Reveal for Chosen!

It sure is amazing to get the final cover for a book series. You get to see how the books fit in beside each other, and just by looking at the covers you can tell so much about the storyline and the world. I love each of the covers in the Stolen series so much, I love how they show both light and dark at the same time, and how Shaleigh is always visible.

That said, I never imagined the cover for Chosen would take my breath away the way it has. I literally could barely speak when I first laid eyes on it, and that was before Shayne and I worked out the details! Now I get to share it with you!

The cover reveal for Chosen, Book 3 of the Stolen series

Can she stop what she unleashed?

How in the world did Shaleigh Mallett find herself standing on a volcanic mountain facing the fire dragon, Tanwen?

She isn’t supposed to be here. She’s supposed to be in high school, studying for classes and exploring abandoned buildings with her best friend. But no, she’s stuck on the Peak of Gwern, hoping that the dragon will somehow show mercy and stop the Madness that plagues them.

There is still so much to do, so many wrongs to right. She can’t abandon her friends after she’s come so far. She won’t abandon them. Not even Talek, who is all but consumed by the Madness. She must take down Keriam the Magician, she must face the Bloody Forest, and she must lead if she ever wants to see home again.

Cover Reveal for The Seeking

Amid all the chaos and confusion going on in the world right now, I come bearing some good news!

Today is the cover reveal for The Seeking, my young adult horror book featuring weird monsters, vicious rituals, creepy villagers, and a gruesome secret. This book comes out on October 27th, just in time for Halloween, from The Parliament House.

I’m thrilled because this is my first full-length horror novel, and although this is a standalone book, I hope to write more horror novels in this vein. Think of this as A Quiet Place mixed with Hunger Games.

I’m so pleased with how this cover came out and it has just the right amount of terror, empathy, and creepy that I love! Check out the synopsis listed below and make sure you add it to your TBR list on Goodreads!

THE SEEKING

Beware the Gray People

Each Seeking, the magic that protects the town of Carra must be renewed, which means the children of the Exalted Family must go into hiding. Whether it be through disguise or bribe, through trusted friends or perfect hiding places, every child of the Priest family must avoid capture for the full day.

When things go wrong with the renewal, it’s up to seventeen-year-old Dahlia, the middle child of the Priest family, and her girlfriend, Bisa, to escape Carra and find the magical beings responsible for the protection. They must learn who would require such a cruel game to be played every year and if the protection of the Gray People is really worth such a deadly cost. What they will discover is far worse.

Do you love this cover as much as I do? Please consider sharing this to any friends who love horror books! As an indie author, we rely so much on word of mouth to get our stories heard. Any help you can give is always appreciated. Thank you!
