May I Present…The Cover!

Charlie Bowater did it again with this original artwork and I am thrilled!

Synopsis:

You’ve heard of the Sand Man. Meet his counterpart, the Sand Maiden.

When a king of Dream Realm sets his sights on conquering Wake Realm, Prince Kovis and Ali must team up to battle forces beyond anything either could have imagined. But Kovis knows nothing about Dream Realm, let alone his Sand Maiden. When Ali is discovered naked in the prince’s bedroom, how will she convince him of her intentions, let alone the danger? Oh, and by the way, Ali has had a crush on the powerful sorcerer since his powers manifested. What could possibly go wrong? Their story will do anything but put you to sleep.

“I’m enthralled. The book has held me captive since I received it…You have me in the spot I love/hate. It’s so good, and I want the next right now. I thoroughly enjoyed the humor woven in this story. A lovely conclusion to this–a nice cliffhanger. I want more!!!” – Peggy Frese, Senior Editor

The Sand Maiden is a NA Epic Fantasy Romance with YA appeal. If you loved Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses, Elise Kova’s Air Awakens, and/or Rachel E. Carter’s The Black Mage you’ll definitely love this.

WARNING: Mature content. Recommended for 18+.

The book is available for pre-order:

Did you catch what my editor thought of Lullaby after reading through it the first time?

“I’m enthralled. The book has held me captive since I received it…You have me in the spot I love/hate. It’s so good, and I want the next right now. I thoroughly enjoyed the humor woven in this story. A lovely conclusion to this–a nice cliffhanger. I want more!!!” – Peggy Frese, Senior Editor

guarantee you’ll experience the same roller coaster ride of emotions. And what’s the worst thing when that happens? You have NO ONE to talk to who understands your excitement or angst! Trust me, I’ve been there!

Well, I wouldn’t do that to you. Fan with other readers when you’re done with the book, in the new Sand Maiden Facebook fan group. After one week, nearly one hundred people have already joined! Avoid the personal drama and join the fun here. LOL!

The Cover’s Getting There!

Is this beautiful or what? It’s a portion of Charlie Bowater’s latest update of my cover for Lullaby, The Sand Maiden, Book One.

Until this version, I’d seen only black and white sketches, but Charlie has added some color with this one and…oh, be still my heart… And just wait until you see the whole thing. The background… This cover’s going to be epic!!

Also, yesterday, I handed off the finished manuscript to my editor after doing four rounds of self edits. I feel like it’s the best work I’ve ever done. It’s certainly the longest at 421 pages (114,173 words, but whose counting. LOL!). Now we’ll see if my editor agrees *bites nails*

One way or another, book one is done…

The book is now also available for pre-order:
Amazon
Google Play

It is on schedule to release January 15, 2018!!
