Cover Reveal for Alara’s Call!

Oh my goodness, I don’t think I’ve ever posted two days in a row!

But this cover is so worth it.

Let me tell you a little about this awesome book!

It releases September 19, 2017.

It’s the first of a four-book series.

The author does so many things, I have no idea when she possibly finds the time to write. (You’ll see in her bio! She’s incredible!)

The back cover sounds amazing.

Tales are often told of heroes who fulfill ancient prophecies. Alara’s Call is the tale of a woman who gives new ones.

Alara sees visions of other’s futures, but never her own.

A young clergywoman with a fiery passion for her Telshan faith, she has been assigned to a mission abroad but longs to lead a congregation in her homeland. Her father, the prime minister, jeopardizes her dream and her safety when he coerces her into what he calls a diplomatic mission.

But it’s a ruse.

The trip is meant to end with her marriage to the crown prince of a foreign nation, where members of Alara’s faith are persecuted and women oppressed. All for a trade agreement her father is desperate to enact.

But her mentor intervenes and takes Alara to Dorrel, the suitor she left behind. They believe they are safe, but foreign soldiers are under orders to bring Alara to the king’s palace…by any means necessary.

See? What did I tell you? Amazing!

Cover Reveal for One of My Favorite Series Ever

So, if you follow me, you most likely know I rave about the Creepy Hollow Series by Rachel Morgan.

Rave. About. Them.

Constantly.

They have won a place in my most treasured and favorite collection of books of all time, and I simply cannot wait to devour more of them.

I’ve even given away the entire series (that was out at that time) at my launch party for Zombie Takeover.

See? I love them!

The world of Creepy Hollow, home to the Fae and the school for Faerie Guardians, is one of the most magical and breathtaking places I have ever escaped to. You should join me!

Now there is another book out (Glass Faerie), two more planned (one of which is the cover I get to show you today), and two short stories available (Scarlett and Raven). Excuse me while I fangirl over these awesome books!

Shadow Faerie, book eight of the Creepy Hollow series, continues Emerson’s story, while the first three told Violet’s story, and the next three Calla’s story.

And. You. Guys.

The first book, The Faerie Guardian, is free for Kindle right now on Amazon! What are you waiting for? Go download this delicious awesomeness right now and join me in drooling over these characters and stalking–er, I mean–following Rachel Morgan to snatch up the very next book she writes as fast as humanly possible! Go! Right now! They’re so goooood!

I’ll make it easy on you. Here is the link! ;)

And now that you know what one of my top series in the entire world is (And I’ve gushed far too much. But I mean every word.), here is the cover for book eight.

.

.

.

Are you ready for it?

.

.

.

Is the waiting driving you crazy?

.

.

.

It’s driving me crazy. I want to read this book right now.

.

.

.

This very second.

.

.

.

And here it is! The cover for Shadow Faerie!

Isn’t that wonderful?

I can’t stop staring.

I love Rachel Morgan’s covers, and I am dying for this book.

Thank you for joining me for today’s cover reveal, and I hope you love this series as much as I do! It is one of the best ever!

In Him,

Michele

Spark’s Gorgeous Cover!

Hurray! I’m so excited I get to be a part of J.M. Hackman’s cover reveal for Spark!

This is the first book in the Firebrand Chronicles, a series that follows Brenna James, a normal teen who discovers she can shoot fire from her bare hands. And freaks out just the teeniest tiniest bit.

(I mean, come on. Wouldn’t you?)

It’s so good!

Here is the back cover copy:

Brenna James wants three things for her sixteenth birthday: to find her history notes before the test, to have her mother return from her business trip, and to stop creating fire with her bare hands.

Yeah, that’s so not happening. Unfortunately.

When Brenna learns her mother is missing in an alternate reality called Linneah, she travels through a portal to find her. Against her will. Who knew portals even existed? But Brenna’s arrival in Linneah begins the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy, including a royal murder and the theft of Linneah’s most powerful relic: the Sacred Veil.

Hold up. Can everything just slow down for a sec?

Unwilling yet left with no other choice, Brenna and her new friend Baldwin (Um, hello, Hottie!) pursue the thief into the dangerous woods of Silvastamen and beyond. Exactly what Brenna wanted to do for her sixteenth birthday. Exactly. When they spy an army marching toward Linneah, Brenna is horrified. Can she find the veil, save her mother, and warn Linneah in time?

And more importantly, why on earth doesn’t this alternity have Belgian waffles?

And just to drag out this sweet torture just a smidgeon more, here is a little about the author herself. (Are you dying to see the cover? I’m dying to show it to you! But seriously, you’ve got to get to know J.M. Hackman first.)

J.M. Hackman has held many positions: assistant librarian, office assistant, office manager, substitute teacher, writer, wife, and mother. She still holds the last three. And loves it. She received a degree in Elementary Education from Pennsylvania State University and now spends her days writing stories, consuming massive quantities of chocolate, and looking for portals to other worlds. You can find her at www.JMHackman.com.

And now for the main event.

.

.

.

It’s coming.

.

.

.

I promise.

.

.

.

Are you as excited as I am? Squeal!

.

.

.

Ta-da!

Take a deep breath. Stare at it some more. Maybe drool a little…

In. Love.

Sara Helwe from Sara Helwe Digital Arts creates magic with her art and with her covers!

This incredible book releases May 16th, and the preorder link will be available soon. (Check out www.L2L2Publishing.com to stay updated on all that jazz.)

Hip, hip, hurray!

In Him,

Michele

Cover Reveal for Kill the Beast

Kill the Beast: Book One of the Beast Hunters

Ro remembers the castle before. Before the gates closed. Before silence overtook the kingdom. Before the castle disappeared. Now it shimmers to life one night a year, seen by her alone.

Once a lady, now a huntress, Ro does what it takes to survive—just like the rest of the kingdom plunged into despair never before known.

But a beast has overtaken the castle. A beast that killed the prince and holds the castle and kingdom captive in his cruel power. A beast Ro has been hired to kill.

Thankful the mystery of the prince’s disappearance has been solved, furious the magical creature has killed her hero, Ro eagerly accepts the job to end him.

But things are not as they seem.

Trapped in the castle, a prisoner alongside the beast, Ro wonders what she should fear most: the beast, the magic that holds them both captive, or the one who hired her to kill the beast.

A Beauty and the Beast retelling.

Isn’t that incredible? Ahh! I’m screaming over here!

I cannot wait until you are able to read my brand-new story.

Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic day with me!

In Him,

Michele

Michele Israel Harper is an addict. To books, to writing—if it includes ink and paper, she’s all over it. When she discovered she could write books instead of simply read them…well, let’s just say she’s rarely been seen outside of her office since. She adores leading her writers’ group, the Heartland Christian Writers, and has no idea what she would do without the American Christian Fiction Writers. Being voted treasurer for her local Indiana Chapter of ACFW just about sent her into a happy coma. Which, you know, she’s very much familiar with since that happens at the end of every good book she reads.

Author of Wisdom & Folly: Sisters, Zombie Takeover, and the soon-to-be-released Kill the Beast, Michele prays her involvement in writing, editing, and publishing will touch many lives in the years to come.

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
