~Cover Reveal~ The Rising Storm by Ceri A Lowe

Hi guys,

I’m delighted to be taking part in a cover reveal for The Rising Storm by Ceri A Lowe, a YA/dystopian book that the lovely folks at Bookouture will be publishing soon!

Here are the all important bookish details 🙂

ABOUT THE BOOK:

An addictive and gripping dystopian series, perfect for fans of The Girl Who Dared to Think, The Hunger Games and The Gender Game.

What if the end of the world was just the beginning?

15-year-old Alice Davenport was a loner and an outcast before the Storms swept away everything she knew. Saved from the ravaged remains of London by the mysterious and all-powerful Paradigm Industries, her fierce independence and unique skills soon gain her recognition from the highest levels of command. But their plans to rebuild civilisation from scratch mean destroying all remnants of the past – no matter what, or who, gets left behind.

Alice must decide if she will fight for the old world, or the new…

Decades later, 15-year-old Carter Warren is woken from the Catacombs after years of cryonic sleep. He’s determined to do whatever it takes to climb the ranks to Controller General – until he realises the Industry’s control methods have become harsher than ever. The Barricades make sure nothing from the Deadlands can get in to the Community – and no one can get out. And a shocking discovery about his own family causes Carter to question everything he’s ever known…

As Alice becomes entangled in the Industry’s plan for the future, and Carter delves into the secrets of his past, they must make sacrifices which threaten to tear them apart. And both of them are forced to confront an impossible question…

Would you dare to risk it all for the perfect world?

~Cover Reveal~ Seven Seconds by Lisa Compton

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing the cover for Seven Seconds by Lisa Compton, the second book to be published by Perpetuity Publising. First though, here’s the bookish information!

About the author:

LC.png

Lisa Compton knew she wanted to be a writer in the fourth grade when her teacher read one of her stories to the class. Lisa has spent more than two decades in healthcare. Away from the hospital, she spends most of her time writing about things that keep her up at night in the company of at least one cat. She lives in her adopted home of San Antonio, Texas with two of her three children.

About the book:

Seven Seconds by Lisa Compton marks the debut of a thrilling paranormal crime series.

Olivia Osborne, a forensic psychologist and former FBI agent, is blessed (or cursed depending on who you ask) with unique gifts. Olivia is able to sense what others cannot–the spiritual presence of those who have “crossed over,” as well as the living who are influenced, or some cases possessed, by evil. The passing of her beloved Gran was the catalyst Olivia Osborn needed to leave the FBI behind and return to her native San Antonio. But a familiar evil has followed her home. 

When a series of brutal murders rock her hometown of San Antonio, Texas, Olivia is pulled into the investigation despite her plans to leave that part of her life behind. What if she isn’t supposed to run? What if she was always supposed to stand and fight?

Seven Seconds will launch in December 2017 through all major retailers in eBook, paperback, and hard cover formats.

And here’s some need-to-know info about Hydra….

One cold November night in 2014, in a small town in the north west
of England, 26-year-old Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother,
father and younger sister to death with a hammer, in an unprovoked
attack known as the ‘Macleod Massacre’. Now incarcerated at a
medium-security mental-health institution, Arla will speak to no one
but Scott King, an investigative journalist, whose ‘Six Stories’
podcasts have become an internet sensation.
King finds himself immersed in an increasingly complex case,
interviewing five witnesses and Arla herself, as he questions whether
Arla’s responsibility for the massacre was a diminished as her legal
team made out. As he unpicks the stories, he finds himself thrust
into a world of deadly forbidden ‘games’, online trolls, and the
mysterious Black-eyed Children, whose presence extends far
beyond the delusions of a murderess…
Dark, chilling and gripping, Hydra is both a classic murder mystery
and an up-to-the-minute, startling thriller, that shines light in places
you may never, ever want to see again.

Doesn’t that sound AMAZING? I genuinely cannot wait for Hydra. It sounds like such a creepy book, so I’ll be reading it with the lights on for sure!

Do you want to see the cover?! Have I made you wait long enough yet?!

*Cover Reveal* Domina by L. S. Hilton

Hi everyone!

So today, along with a few other bloggers, we’re all revealing the cover for the new book by L. S. Hilton called DOMINA.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll know that Hilton is the author of Maestra, one of this year’s most talked about books. Well Judith Rashleigh is back in Domina, and feast your eyes on this royal blue beauty…

 

About the book:

Since opening her own art gallery in Venice, Judith Rashleigh—now Elisabeth Teerlinc—can finally stop running. She’s got the paycheck, lifestyle, and wardrobe she always dreamed of, not to mention the interest of a Russian billionaire. But when a chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a corpse that is, for once, not her own doing, she finds her life is back on the line—and she’s more alone than ever. It seems Judith’s become involved with more than just one stolen painting, and there is someone else willing to kill for what’s theirs.

From St. Moritz to Serbia, Judith again finds herself maneuvering the strange landscapes of wealth, but this time there’s far more than her reputation at stake. How far will Rage take Judith? Far enough to escape death?

Thomas Enger Cursed Cover Reveal

Today I’m delighted to be able to share a cover reveal with you all courtesy of Karen Sullivan at Orenda Books. Orenda are one of my favourite publishers as they have a dearth of wonderful authors and novels in their catalogue and this latest addition is no different!

About the author:

Thomas Enger (b. 1973) is a former journalist. He made his debut with the crime novel Burned (Skinndød) in 2009, which became an international sensation before publication. Burned is the first in a series of 5 books about the journalist Henning Juul, which delves into the depths of Oslo’s underbelly, skewering the corridors of dirty politics and nailing the fast-moving world of 24-hour news. Rights to the series have been sold to 26 countries to date. In 2013 Enger published his first book for young adults, a dark fantasy thriller called THE EVIL LEGACY, for which he won the U-prize (best book Young Adult). Enger also composes music, and he lives in Oslo.


About the book:

What secret would you kill to protect?

When Hedda Hellberg fails to return from a retreat in Italy, where she has been grieving for her recently dead father, her husband discovers that his wife’s life is tangled in mystery. Hedda never left Oslo, the retreat has no record of her and, what’s more, she appears to be connected to the death of an old man, gunned down on the first day of the hunting season in the depths of the Swedish forests. Henning Juul becomes involved in the case when his ex-­‐wife joins in the search for the missing woman, and the estranged pair find themselves enmeshed both in the murky secrets of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families, and in the painful truths surrounding the death of their own son. With the loss of his son to deal with, as well as threats to his own life and to that of his ex-­‐wife, Juul is prepared to risk everything to uncover a sinister maze of secrets that ultimately leads to the dark heart of European history. Taut, chilling and unputdownable, Cursed is the fourth in the internationally renowned series featuring conflicted, disillusioned by always dogged crime reporter Henning Juul, and marks the return of one of Norway’s finest crime writers.

And without further ado, feast your eyes on this beauty… 


Cursed will be available to buy in ebook format in December, and in paperback in early February 2017!

I’m already excited… 😊
