“The Stranger” Cover Reveal

Today, on this most auspicious of eclipse days (eh, or it’s the first sign of the apocalypse. EITHER WAY) I am absolutely chuffed to bring you the cover reveal of The Stranger, an anthology in which I will release my horror/fantasy short story, “With My Own Eyes,” a prequel to my novel “The Half Killed.”

I love it. (Am I allowed to say that? Yes. Yes, I am.)

The release date is set for October 2nd, perfect timing for Halloween and cups of cocoa and crunchy leaves (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, then… well.) I’ll post again soon with pre-order links as soon as they’re available. Now, time for coffee and some solar/lunar gymnastics…

The Firstborn Cover Reveal

Goodness gracious. Today is my youngest child’s first birthday. The kids are all recovering from a sniffly cold and clamoring to go outside, except that it’s a deluge and I’m waiting for an ark to show up at our doorstep any minute. This weekend we’re moving furniture and buying drywall and having a birthday party (and maaaaaaybeeeee sneaking in a viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy 2?) and then Tuesday will flutter along before I know it and then The Firstborn will be live.

Which means it’s incredibly timely that I now have a cover for it.

*ahem*

*fanfare*

It captures Sophia and Finn brilliantly. It’s soft, it’s dreamy, it’s like a confection. Which fits the story, I have to say. A wonderful job by amazing cover artist (since I can’t draw stick figures that look like they should.)

A Cover and Things

It’s Monday, and things are starting to feel a bit more like they’re getting back to normal. We had a weekend where we weren’t working on cars or painting the house or anything else that wasn’t going to church, taking the kids to the park, and sipping milkshakes. Which was lovely.

I’m still lacking on sleep however, since I have two kids who still nap, but are at that age that when they do nap, it means trying to get them to sleep at night before 11 p.m. is akin to wrestling a particularly ornery bear into a pair of pajamas. So it’s a fun game of finding the balance between dealing with children who, when they don’t nap, are monsters, but when they do nap, keep everyone up until midnight (or later).

I’m exhausted, is what I’m attempting to say in a rather roundabout way.

I’m also getting back into writing again, since I took a break from it while my dad was in the hospital and afterwards. (See what I did there? How I referred to… everything that happened as “and afterwards”? Yeah, that’s about where my head still is right now.) And it wasn’t a voluntary break by any means. It was more of a I-Can’t-Cope-With-Anything-That-Isn’t-What’s-Happening-Right-In-Front-Of-Me kind of thing. So I was able to take care of myself and take care of the kids and take care of the barest of bare minimum of chores around the house, and that was it.

Now I’ve hit a huge creative surge the last couple weeks, which seems to be what my brain does after some Major Traumatic Event. After my miscarriage last fall, I wrote about 20,000 words in a few days and managed to finish the first draft of a novel. Now I’m dallying with several stories at once and taking care of marketing The Half Killed and about 5,000 other things that work well to take my mind off the sadness that’s just there, lurking around the corner. Apparently this is how I deal. And I’m okay with that.

I’m working on edits for A Darkling Way, a new story I’ll be posting on Wattpad as each chapter is finished. Out of Darkness has started being updated again (the first book is finished, I simply… stopped posting the chapters. Because life.) The cover for A Darkling Way is gorgeous, and not done by me. Which is partly why it’s so good, since if I was left to do my covers, everything would be stick figures created in Microsoft Paint.

See? Gorgeous.

I’m looking at the week of July 26th for it’s debut on Wattpad. I don’t have a definite date set yet, but that’s as close as I can say when I have no idea what’s going to happen in this household from one day to the next. I mean, I’m still finishing up Freja’s schoolwork for the year, and it’s July. JULY. But a lot happened to us in the last nine months, so I’m not going to beat myself up about it. At least, not too much.

Dawning of Light (Lightbearer Book 2) by Tami Lund: Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Dawning of Light Cover

Dawning of Light by Tami Lund 
(Lightbearer Book 2) 
Publication date: December 15th, 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance

What It’s All About:

Finnegan Hennigan meets his match in spunky Cecilia Druthers, a woman he can barely stand. Cecelia’s opinion of Finn? He’s an oaf and a killjoy. But, opposites can’t resist each other in Dawning of Light by Tami Lund. You’ll love Book 2 of Tami’s hot fantasy series, Lightbearer, a saga about lightbearers and the shifters who hate to love them.

The Lightbearers are a group of magical beings who have lived for five hundred years hidden away in their warded and protected coterie. Now that the princess of the Lightbearers is mated to a shifter, their peaceful lives have been turned upside down.

In this second installment of the Lightbearer Series, shifter Finnegan Hennigan is doing his damnedest to keep lightbearer Cecilia Druthers out of trouble. His job is made all the more difficult by the fact that Cecilia doesn’t want to stay out of trouble.

Despite their mutual annoyance, sparks ignite between this odd couple. As it becomes increasingly more apparent that someone is out to get Cecilia, the flares of attraction become impossible to resist, and soon, Cecilia and Finn tumble into, well, a closet together. And then the bed. And if Finn wants to keep her there, he’s going to need to keep her alive.

Which means figuring out who the hell keeps trying to kill her.

What That Really Means You’ll Be Reading: Hot, Non-sexual Violence, Fantasy, Fairies, Paranormal, Shifters, Suspense
