Cover Reveal: Hero by Alethea Kontis

So Alethea just posted the cover for her new book Hero.  It's a companion to Enchanted.  All I can really say is YAY!!!!  I'm so excited for this book.  When I was at Dragon*Con this past year, she read the first chapter of this at her Princess Alethea Traveling Side Show.  It's going to be fantastic.  I just know it is.  If you haven't read Enchanted, I highly suggest it!!!  I read it from Atlanta to Lexington!

So here it is!

Rough and tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she’s the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, “Did romance have to be part of the adventure?” As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.
The cover was designed by the same person who designed the cover for Enchanted.  It's Christine Kettner, Art Director at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  You can read A Backwards Story where they did a fabulous interview with Christine about the Enchanted cover HERE.

It's going to be released on the 1st of October.  So we got a while to save for it!!!   That also kinda sucks to for me as I'm going to Dragon*Con again and was really wanting her to sign it!!!

Anyways, if you want to pre-order it please go to her blog post about this cover reveal and click her link at the bottom of the post.   Princess Alethea Kontis


What do you think of the cover?

Recalled by Cambria Hebert - Cover Reveal

Cambria Hebert has done it again with another beautiful cover.  Death Escorts is a new series from the author of the Heven and Hell series. This series is unique because each book acts as a stand alone, meaning that you don't have to read all the books in order to understand each of them. They are all based off of the same idea (that idea being the characters are all Death Escorts) and will have some of the same characters in each book. The series is for young adults and beyond and encompasses the elements of romance, thriller, paranormal and fantasy. You will not see vampires, shifters, witches, fae or any type of those kinds of characters in this series.

And here it is!

Just look at it.  It's PERFECT!!!  It screams "Read Me, Now!"


Even the whole wrap is amazing.  I can NOT wait to get my hands on this!!!

Here is the blurb.
Love or Death? A simple question really. The choice seems obvious. But. What if you never knew love, what if your life was spent just trying to survive? What if you knew your fate before you were fully grown?
And then you died.
And you were given another chance. A better chance.
This new life depended upon one thing: your job. And so you agreed. You thought it would be simple. You thought it would be cut and dry.
It never is.
And now you are left holding the fate of someone else in the palm of your hand and you have to make the ultimate choice.
Love or Death?
 
Now for some of the important information, like when you will be able to get your grubby little phalanges on it!!!  That bit will be in BOLD so you don't miss it.  That's an important day!!!
Title: Recalled
Series: Death Escorts
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: Young Adult Romance with paranormal, thriller and mystery elements
Release Date: February 15, 2013
Format: Will be available in Print and Ebook
publisher: Cambria Hebert



Cambria Hebert is the author of the young adult paranormal Heven and Hell series and the upcoming Death Escorts series. She loves a caramel latte, hates math and is afraid of chickens (yes, chickens). She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair. She currently lives in Pennsylvania where she is plotting her next book.

Happy New Year

Well Well, we survived the Mayan thing.  I put out an ad saying that if you wanted to give me your possessions before the end of the world I would be more then happy to take them off your hands.   I didn't get any replies! :(

Who all is ready for the new year?  *raises hand*  I AM!!  Vampire Diaries return along with BONES and most importantly The Walking Dead, granted that is in February but that is OK.

I'm looking forward to what this year is going to bring.  It's already brought me a new beginning on relationships!  YAY.  I'm looking forward to spending more time with my daughter.  I'm also looking forward to reconnecting with friends. 

And lastly, I'm looking forward to getting back into reading and posting here on the blog. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and had a legendary New Years Eve.

Love you all!
