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!

Cover Reveal for Rebirth

I’m beyond excited to be a part of Amy’s cover reveal! Look at that cover! Isn’t it amazing?

I am so stinkin’ thrilled to get my hands on this baby May 24th, when it releases.

I mean, seriously. Gorgeous. Cover.

Here’s a little about the book:

Liz Brantley has a gift she wants to return.
Able to see and fight demonic forces, she has spent her life alone, battling the minions of hell bent on her destruction, running from the God who gave her this curse. The demon Markus, drawn to her abilities, unleashes havoc on her hometown and pulls Liz further into the throes of battle.
She’s desperate for a normal life.
When she meets a mysterious man who seems unaware of the mystical realm that haunts her, the life she’s always wanted flits within reach. But her slice of normal slips from her grasp when an old flame, Ryland Vaughn, reappears with secrets of his own. Secrets that will alter her destiny.
Torn between two worlds, Liz is caught in an ancient war between good and evil.
And she isn’t sure which side to choose.

 

 

 

 

 

And the author:

Amy Brock McNew doesn’t just write speculative fiction, she lives and breathes it. Exploring the strange, the supernatural, and the wonderfully weird, Amy pours her guts onto the pages she writes, honestly and brutally revealing herself in the process. Nothing is off-limits. Her favorite question is “what if?” and she believes fiction can be truer than our sheltered and controlled realities. Visit AmyBrockMcNew.com to learn more about this intriguing author.

Isn’t that awesome? Can’t wait until this sucker is available for preorder! :)

(Btw, I hear there’s a surprise on Amy’s website to celebrate her cover reveal. Check it out!)

Happy reading!

The Captive Imposter in Paperback

It’s here! Release day for the final (for now) book in the Everstone Chronicles, The Captive Imposter.

And, once again, the lovely Dawn Crandall is giving away copies of her gorgeous book on both Goodreads and her website.

This book is my favorite of the series.

Estella Everstone is sent away from her home to one of her luxurious family-owned hotels, under a false name and a false identity. Someone intends to further harm her family, and her family does not want her to get hurt.

She meets Dexter Blakely, the manager, and he intrigues her, unlike any other.

Estella is quiet and shy–much like how I was for most of my life. In fact, I still am; I just hide it well. ;) Dexter Blakely is a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. He is honest, kind (if a bit prickly at first introduction), and rescues damsels in distress.

What’s not to love about this unlikely pair?

If you have not yet read this series, this book, I encourage you to give The Captive Imposter a try if you like gothic romance.

I am certainly glad I did!

And how wonderful this previously ebook-only novel is now in paperback!

Happy reading! :)

In Him,

Michele

About the Book

For her own protection following the murder of her brother Will, hotel heiress Estella Everstone assumes the alias of Elle Stoneburner and takes a job as companion to an elderly widow. Never did she imagine that her position would lead her back to her beloved Everston, a picturesque resort property tucked away in the rugged mountains of Maine. Living below her station in a guise of anonymity has its struggles, but her spirits are buoyed by a newfound friendship with the hotel manager, Dexter Blakeley. And his distaste for the spoiled socialites who frequent his hotel causes her to take a close look at her own priorities and past lifestyle. When Estella finds herself in need of help, Dexter comes to the rescue with an offer of employment she can’t refuse. As the two interact and open up to each other, Estella feels a growing attraction to Dexter; and increasing discomfort over concealing her identity. Yet, in spite of the false pretense she’s putting forth, she’s never felt freer to be herself than in his presence. But will he still love her when he learns the truth about who she is?

All three of her charming gothic romances previously released in ebook format only.

Did you know that was a thing?

Some publishing houses are now releasing ebooks, seeing how sales go, THEN releasing a paperback version if there is enough of a demand.

And believe me, there is demand for this picturesque tale.

In fact, to celebrate, Dawn is giving away FIVE copies to five very, very lucky winners. I should know. I’m jealous. ;)

So. Enter her giveaway on Goodreads, or her giveaway on her website, or purchase one of your very own on Amazon.

About the Book

After being unjustly expelled from the Boston Conservatory of Music, Amaryllis Brigham sees her dreams of founding a music academy in her hometown of Seattle, Washington, disappearing before her very eyes. Now, the only way to achieve her goal comes with high stakes for someone set on avoiding men as much as possible: Marry within the year to inherit the immense fortune of her estranged grandmother.

Amaryllis reluctantly moves in to her aunt’s Boston home and rubs shoulders with fashionable society. Despite her own misgivings, she soon finds herself quickly falling in love with the most unlikely of men, Nathan Everstone, the envy of every eligible female, whose father has haunted her dreams for the decade following her mother’s tragic death. However, Nathan turns out to be much more than he seems…and everything she never knew she wanted. But just as everything Amaryllis has recently hoped for comes to fruition, it all falls apart when she finds that the real culprit who has been managing her life isn’t who she thought at all.
