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!

Cover Reveal for Broken!

Happy Halloween, dearies! It’s my favorite holiday of the year — and one of the busiest times, which is why I’ve been so bad about posting this month. Everything else gets put on hold for a while though because this is so very important.

I am so pleased to be able to share the cover reveal for Broken, the second book in the Stolen series with you!

Take your time, it’s a gorgeous piece!

I love SO much about this cover. I literally squealed when I realized that the rocky outcroppings hovering above were in the shape of hearts. Broken is about more than the journey, it’s about hurting and healing along the way. It’s about Shaleigh figuring out who she is and exploring the chambers of others’ hearts. And there she is, refusing to back down, refusing to be intimidated by the path before her. She sees the light at the end and only has eyes on that. She has come so far from where she began in Stolen, and I’m so proud of her.

Broken

Book 2 of the Stolen series

A land has fallen. An escape was made. It’s a victory, but at what price?

Shaleigh has made a terrible mistake, one she may not ever be able to fix. Lost and in a strange land with anger and death all around her, she must navigate her way through treacherous lands on her quest for redemption. Along the way she’ll have to negotiate with the mercurial Queen of the Fae, survive the dangers of the Masked King’s realm, and seek out a terrifying fire dragon.

With two powerful beings hot on her trail, Shaleigh has no choice but to keep moving, or else face the dangerous magic of the Madness that has already caused so much pain and heartache. With her sights on helping her friends and her heart longing for home, Shaleigh is determined, but will it be enough?

Broken releases on April 7, 2020 from The Parliament Press.

Happy Cover Reveal, Stolen!

Stolen has been a book that I’ve been working on since April 2014. When Parliament House Press offered a contract, I was at work and had to keep from squeeing aloud with joy!

I’m so happy to now be able to reveal the cover for my debut novel, Stolen, Book I of the Stolen Series. Coming January 22, 2019 from Parliament House Press.

 

Look at how gorgeous it turned out! I absolutely love the colors, the menace of it, the little touches of fairies and the font. I also love that there’s a person of cover on this book, something that is so rare to find. I love the trees reaching out to her, but the way she walks with determination. There’s just so much here that makes me so very happy! The more you zoom in, the more you see all the careful details that have been added in.

Here’s the synopsis:

It’s difficult taking care of a delusional father by yourself. Sixteen-year-old Shaleigh Mallet would rather explore and photograph dilapidated buildings than cater to her father’s dark episodes. But when she’s kidnapped by a creature who carries her atop a flying bicycle into another world, she realizes this wasn’t the escape she wanted.

In a kingdom known as the Garden, where minotaurs pull carriages and parties are held in hot air balloons, Madam Cloom and her faerie servant, Teagan, rule over the land with incredible but terrifying magic. Shaleigh must prove that she is the reincarnation of a long-dead ruler, not because she believes it, but because it’s her only chance to survive. With the help of a trespassing faerie, a stoatling, and a living statue, Shaleigh hopes to outwit everyone. She aims to break the bonds of servitude and finally make her way home. What she doesn’t realize, however, is that she’s playing right into the hands of a far worse enemy…

PS: You might notice some color changes around here! I thought I’d update things a bit to match more with Stolen’s color theme. 🙂
