Ending Fear Cover Reveal

That’s right! Cover reveal #2! (Coincidentally, for another YA dystopian)

(…Don’t judge me, I love dystopian. A lot. But this really was a coincidence, I swear.)

Okay, so little story. I connected with a sweet lady on Twitter a few months ago named Deanna Fugett. She had just been contracted with Love2ReadLove2Writer Publishing for her YA dystopian Ending Fear. With my obsession with all things dystopian, I decided I had to figure out more about this book. So I scrambled to her website to read the summary.

And dang. I WANTED IT IMMEDIATELY.

But it doesn’t come out till next year (WHYYYY DO BOOK RELEASES TAKE SO LONG???). Sooooo I decided I’d do the next best thing: sign up for the cover reveal.

Because why the heck not am I right?

So, without further ado, I present the cover and synopsis of Ending Fear! *flails away*

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?

A Time to Rise Cover Reveal

AAAAHHHHHHHHHH

*ahem* I have something to share with you humans today.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

Of course you don’t, how could you? (Or maybe you do, ya freaking psychic) (Or maybe you just read the title of this post, eh?) So, let me tell you a story.

Once Upon A Time, long ago (about last September), I read a book. It was a nice book. I loved it muchly. Then I loved it a little more. And then, guess what? I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY ENTIRE BEING AND DEVOTED MY EMOTIONS TO IT FOR ALL OF ETERNITY.

This book is called A Time to Die.

You may have heard of it. If you know me at all, you know Nadine Brandes is a dear friend of mine. She’s a beautiful soul who can write a beast of a book like a freaking boss. That’s everything I look for in a human being. (Good human companions are hard to come by these days, you know) You also probably know that A Time to Die is one of my favorite books*, as is A Time to Speak. I love the messages the stories hold. They’re inspiring and powerful and so close to my heart. So, naturally I’m so excited for the last book (DOES IT REALLY HAVE TO BE THE LASSSSSSTTT, NADINE?) and had to hop on the bandwagon of revealing the cover to the world!

*(how a book becomes one of my favorites: if there’s death, blood, induces feels, and has a message in its madness. yes, this is the perfect book.)

So, are we ready?

No, of course you’re not ready.

WELL, WE’RE DOING IT ANYWAYS. SO. ARE. YOU. READY? BECAUSE I CAN’T HEAR YOU.

THAT’S MORE LIKE IT. *admires my vast armies*

Okay, no really, time to get serious.

OKAY. I’M DONE, I SWEAR.

Here we go.

It’s happening.

It’s for real.

(keep scrolling)

Okay, you’re probably so irritated with me right now.

COVER.

LOOK.

AHHHHHHHH.

I AM DEAD. (*wink wink Nadine* 😉)

ATimetoRiseCover (Cover done by Kirk DouPonce, DogEared Design)

Synopsis:

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?

 

Isn’t it gorgeous??? Isn’t that blurb amazing?!?! *so many heart-eye emojis* I think it’s my favorite yet, and that’s saying something! Just…oooooh I can’t handle the awesome!

Are you as stoked as I am for this book? I’m going to devour the heck out of it as soon as it touches my hands!

A Time to Rise releases October 14, 2016 from Enclave Publishing (an imprint of Gilead Publishing), so DON’T FORGET. MARK YOUR CALENDARS. I WILL. And if you haven’t read this series, I highly encourage you to! It changed my writing/reading/life in general, and though I’m sad it’s ending so soon, I can’t wait to read it and see how Parvin’s journey comes to a close.

And here’s a cool countdown graphic for the release! https://countdownsbyerin.com/cd/time/ (you can include one on your website too by following the link)

I’ll be leaving a bunch of links down below you can check out (including Enclave’s website, because they’re just that awesome), but other than that, that’s a wrap! So you can just stare at this cover forever, like I’m going to.

Recap and future things//many words about The WIP//Camp NaNo happenings

*logs onto blog* WAIT WHAT. No, this can’t be right. I haven’t blogged since February? Where, eh, where did all of my posts from the last 4 months go? >.> They should be here somewhere?

Heh. Okay. So, life’s been crazy. You all know how it is. It doesn’t help that I’m 18 now, and graduated, so you know, #adulting. (It’s painful) I swear I haven’t been neglecting the Blog Baby, it’s just I’ve been so busy, I haven’t been graced with the time to sit down and be faithful with it. But that changes, starting now. I hope to have a blog post at least every other week, starting this month. I KNOW THE WAIT MUST HAVE BEEN AGONIZING, REALLY. BUT IT’S ALL BETTER NOW, FEAR NOT. ^_^

//

Anyway. Onto actual blog things. To start off, I thought I’d give a brief recap and what’s been going on with me (if you even care a little. If not, keep scrollingggg, no hurt feelings here!).

~I GRADUATED. Yes, yes, I know! Much excitement! It was quite glorious and awfully grand. My reception was book-themed. It was so pleasing to this book-dragon’s heart. There was so much vintage-ness (vintagity? vintagial?) and many Tolkien and Lewis quotes and even some from Mary Weber*. High school is over, adulting ahead. Let the Hunger Games begin.

*If you do not know who Mary Weber is, you obviously have not spent 10 minutes with me or seen any of my tweets…(you must fix this)

~I’M GOING TO COLLEGE. I literally got my acceptance letter/schedule this week, so this is fairly recent news. But still, YAY. I will be studying psychology with a minor (for now) in photo journalism, with plans to be a clinical counselor for children. Yes, I love every little munchkin I’ve ever met and want to keep them all. (Nope. You know what, that’s too creepy. Let’s disregard that entire last sentence, yeah? Okay, good.) It’s destined that I work with them and help them out anyway I can!

~I’M GOING TO REALM MAKERS. Yes, that’s right, I’M GOING TO BE WITH MY PEOPLE. *screech of a thousand pterodactyls* I’ll be hitting the road (or taking flight, not sure yet) in 3 weeks to my very first writers’ conference. AND I WILL SEE SOME OF MY FRIENDS, TOO. INCLUDING NADINE BRANDES. REMEMBER HER??? I have no chill about any of this. (If you don’t know what Realm Makers is, you can find out here!)

//

Well, I suppose that’s all the really important things to recap on. Life’s been crazy, full of writing and adventures with friends, and learning day by day how Big and Gracious and Loving my Jesus is. But now…now we must talk about writerly things.

Oh yes. Here. We. Go.

For several, several months now I’ve been working on a story called These the Restorers. It’s YA epic fantasy, all those good titles, but this story. This story means something to me. For you writers out there, you know when you write stories, and they’re all good and fun, but then you write that one. That one story that sticks with you, demands your undivided attention, opens up worlds of potential, and ultimately matures you as a writer? The story of your heart?

That’s the story I’m writing about. (And obsessively making a pinterest board for)

I won’t bug with you with all my flailing over how much I completely adore this story (yes, writers, it’s okay to be obsessed and in love with your own work…it’s your brain child, after all), but I will give you a brief summary.

*cracks knuckles* Let’s do this.

Kaelan Gavern has lived in the Graylands all her life, stripped of any real humanity. The wars dividing her world and the Tones, the entities that create color and keep them in harmony, has left her bitter, without peace. When she’s forced to leave her home, she and her brother Arec, who can’t ever seem to find a downside to anything, meet a mysterious woman who tells them that the wars can be stopped and the Tones can be restored to the way they once were–the way they should be.

And it’s entirely up to Kaelan. Now, the fate of the Tones, her people in the Graylands, and the warring kingdoms are balanced on her shoulders.

*collapses for a year* THAT WAS SO STRESSFUL. I’ve never publically shared what this story is about, so I just need you to love it, okay? I need everyone to be nice and precious humans and only tell me how amazing it sounds. I’M NOT READY FOR ANYTHING ELSE. (Don’t judge it by the blurb, seriously they’re my kryptonite and I loathe them with a passion, they suck and I suck at writing them. The story isn’t half bad, I swear.)

I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone (basically future readers, because this story hopefully will be published someday), but just know…much death abounds within these pages.

What, you were expecting more? Sure, there’s more, maybe even some good parts, but mostly just violence and blood and death. That’s how I roll. #sorrynotsorry

//

So, now that you know a little bit about TTR, let’s talk Camp NaNo! I’ll be doing it this month! Eeeeeeeee. I’m in a cabin with (among others) Lena, Wendy, and Aimee, some of my very favorite writer peeps (or peeps in general), and I have no chill. So much flailing and writing and fun is going to go down. I can’t wait!

But here’s the kicker.

I’m bringing TTR to Realm Makers with me (yes, so stressful. I’m giving this to people to read…people who aren’t me), and there’s nowhere near an end in sight for this sucker. And remember I just said RM is in 3 weeks…? YEAH. SO MUCH ANXIETY OVER THIS. So, for Camp NaNo, I’ll be writing 60k words for TTR, hopefully ending the story with time to mildly revise the really awful parts before RM. I need so much prayer, guys, it’s not even funny.

//

Anyway. That’s all I have. But I need to know! What’s been up with all of you lately? I’ve missed seeing your beautiful humanly faces (here on the blog, that is)! What have you been reading/writing lately? WILL I SEE YOU AT REALM MAKERS? (Don’t be surprised if you here me howling if you say yes) Are you doing Camp NaNo? What’s your goal? Tell me all the things, friends! I’ve missed you! 🙂
