Ending Fear’s Cover Reveal! Yay!

I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.

Cover reveals quite possibly are my favorite authorly posts to be a part of.

I mean, first I get to be one of the first people to see a cover, then I get to post gorgeous art on my website, and to top it off I learn about a brand-spanking-new book–what’s there not to love about a reveal?

So, without further ado, here it is.

Wait for it.

It’s coming.

Are you hyperventilating yet? (No? Only I get that excited? I knew it.) ;)

Ta-da! Deanna Fugett’s cover for her debut novel, Ending Fear!

Isn’t it lovely?

The first time I saw it, I just about died. In love!

There is such wistfulness, such longing, such wanting to be free of fear, the girl can’t help but match the title.

I have a feeling this book is going to be awesome. I just know it. ;) (Okay, okay, so I’ve already read it. It is amazing!!! I can’t wait till you get to read it too!)

Here is a synopsis of this YA Dystopian:

Fourteen-year-old Fear learns she was a parachute baby, dumped over the edge of the Gliding Lands as an infant. Running from her abusive Downer family, Fear discovers a new family. One who knows how to love. But then her new little sister is kidnapped and sold to a harem. Fear must go against her namesake and journey to the dreaded Gliding Lands before the little girl’s innocence is ripped from her forever. Can she save Happy in time?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I pray you have a wonderful day and read lots of marvelous books!

In Him,

Michele

Release Day for Zombie Takeover!

Today’s the day! Zombie Takeover’s release day!

How do I feel about that?

I feel like I could run up a mountain. Wrestle a grizzly. Scream and cry and laugh and howl and sob all at once. (But I won’t. Cause that’d just be scary.) ;)

I thought this day would never come.

(Although I was seriously freaking out because they didn’t have my paperback available for preorder on Amazon till yesterday. Oh. My. Goodness. Scare me, why don’t you?)

I was so worried people wouldn’t like it, but everyone who has reviewed it has loved it. Yay!

My heart aches with the happiness of it all.

I’m going to spend the day floating on clouds, stroking the cover of my precious (did I say that out loud?), and taking myself out for an ice cream cone. I mean, the kids. I’m taking the kids out for an ice cream cone.

This is a great day!

MY. BOOK. IS. OUT.

Thank you, Lord, for your goodness to me! I love you!

In Him,

Michele

Zombie Takeover

Zombie Takeover

Series: Candace Marshall Chronicles, Book 1
Genre: YA Paranormal
ASIN: 1943788081
I was the bravest, fiercest warrior, singlehandedly stopping the zombie apocalypse and earning the respect and admiration of those who fought with me. Just kidding. I pretty much peed my pants and wasted a ton of ammo. At least everyone else shot what they were aiming at. Me? Not so much. This is my story—me, Candace Marshall, the world’s biggest scaredy-cat, facing my biggest fear. Zombies. It was awesome. (As in, not at all.)

Overview

I was the bravest, fiercest warrior, singlehandedly stopping the zombie apocalypse and earning the respect and admiration of those who fought with me. Just kidding. I pretty much peed my pants and wasted a ton of ammo. At least everyone else shot what they were aiming at. Me? Not so much. This is my story—me, Candace Marshall, the world’s biggest scaredy-cat, facing my biggest fear. Zombies. It was awesome. (As in, not at all.)

Candace Marshall hates zombie movies. She hates anything scary, in fact. In his usual, not-so-thoughtful way, her boyfriend surprises her with advanced screening tickets to the latest zombie flick, complete with interactive features and a tour. She refuses to watch it, but it doesn’t matter.

Horror becomes reality when an experiment gone wrong transforms her peaceful town into a mess of slathering zombies. Thrown together with the only other survivor, Gavin Bailey, her favorite actor and secret crush, she somehow fights her way through the mess, making plenty of blunders and surprising herself with…courage?

But, just when Candace thinks it can’t get worse than zombies, it does.

Cover Reveal: A Time to Rise

Look at that cover! Oh. My. Word.

When Nadine Brandes asked her totally awesome readers if they wanted to be a part of her cover reveal, I nearly tore down my baby gate to get to my computer.

I mean, I had to be a part of this reveal. Had to.

Look at it next to the other two books in the Out of Time Series. Drooooooooool. I’m a sucker for a good cover.

Want to know a little more about A Time to Rise?

Back Cover:

What more can you sacrifice than your life?

Parvin Blackwater is dead.

At least…that’s what the Council—and the world—thinks. But her sacrifice tore down part of the Wall long enough to stir up hope and rebellion in the people. Now she will rise again. Strong, free, and fearless.

Parvin and Solomon must uncover the mysterious clues that Jude left behind in order to destroy the projected Wall once and for all. Meanwhile, the Council schemes to new levels of technology in its attempts to keep the people contained. Can a one-handed Radical and a scarred ex-Enforcer really bring shalom to the world?

Doesn’t that sound thrilling? Add A Time to Rise to your Goodreads shelf! Do it! ;)

This book releases October 14, 2016 (Why do I have to wait that long? WHY?) and I will be the first one to preorder this lovely.

Guess I’m just going to have to stare at this countdown thingy for forever.

Is it moving faster yet?

Can’t wait to read and review this book! :)

In Him,

Michele

P.S. Don’t forget to follow Nadine Brandes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. She is probably the most fun author I’ve ever followed in my life! She’s hilarious and witty and totally rocks. So excited to be a part of her reveal!

My Book Is Almost Here!

(Me holding my book and looking deliriously happy! Or maybe just delirious…) ;)

Oh my goodness, you guys! It’s almost here! Zombie Takeover is almost out. Just one more week!

Tuesday, July 12, 2016, I will be squealing, crazy dancing, shouting, and praising God for His goodness to me in letting another of my books be published.

And I’ll be getting ready for my Facebook Launch Party. Did I mention I’m giving away over 50 of my favorite books? I’m so excited to share my favorites with you! Join me here!

Also, Zombie Takeover the eBook will be $1.99 until the day of the Facebook party. What an awesome deal!

And eight of the most awesome people in the world signed up to be a part of my blog tour. You’ve seriously got to check out these amazing blog stops.

Amy Brock McNew interviewed me and asked me all kinds of nosy questions about book two (Vampire Feud) I was not prepared to answer. Spoilers, Amy, spoilers! ;) But I had to give a few hints anyway. Cause Amy is awesome and my readers rock. Check out her blog post on Thursday! As in, in two days!!!

Then Friday, July 8th, Kristen Stieffel let me write a guest post about “Why on earth did you write about zombies?” for New Authors’ Fellowship. So much fun! I bet you never knew this particular fact about me. Find out Friday!

Laurie Lucking from Lands Uncharted wanted to know my top three spec fic picks and why I adored these particular books. I’ll be giving a few of them away at my Facebook party, so I had to rave about them here as well. (And few I’ll be giving away at Kill the Beast’s Launch Party…hint, hint.) ;) Check out why I love them Saturday!

Sunday, Robin Pack will be reviewing Zombie Takeover on Snippets of Faith. I’m so excited (and did I mention nervous?) to hear what she thinks of my new release! Her website is absolutely gorgeous, you guys. Check it out!

Monday, July 11th, check out Robin Scobee’s review of Zombie Takeover on Quills and Ink Blotts. Each reader/reviewer has had something completely different to say about my novel, and I’m crazy excited (yep, still nervous) about this review as well. Bring it! ;)

Then you’ll hear plenty of gushing from me right here, next Tuesday, when my baby actually releases. Woohoo!

Wednesday, Jennette Mbewe will interview Candace Marshall in “Candid with Candace: How to Survive the Zombie Takeover.” That was freaking so much fun! Candace is such a baby. It’s just zombies, Candace. Sheesh. ;)

Shayla Eaton from Curiouser Editing is doing Zombie Takeover’s final review, and I’m nervous about this review for an entirely different reason. I mean, she’s an editor! What if I misspelled something, and my other editors and I missed it? Gasp! But I’m still so excited to see what she thinks about my book. This is surreal! It’s really happening! Check out her post Thursday, July 14th (the same day as the Facebook Launch party!) on Curiouser Editing’s blog page!

Then Ralene Burke is doing some kind of post-launch feature on how the entire launch for my latest release went. I’m on the edge of my seat to see what she has to say! Her posts are always so much fun! Check out the final blog stop of the tour on Friday, July 15th.

Isn’t that so cool? I’m so thankful for each one of these bloggers. They rock!

(You can also check out the full blog tour schedule on my publisher’s website.)
