*Soul Survivor Revamped Cover Reveal*

I'm super freaking excited to share the new and improved cover for Soul Survivor courtesy of the best cover artist ever, Sarah Hansen from Okay Creations! I have to tell you, I had no vision for this cover AT ALL so Sarah ran wild with it and she SERIOUSLY delivered! I still can't believe its mine. Ahh! Well, I guess you'd like to see it instead of hearing me blubber about it!

Feast your eyes on this beauty....

Here's the synopsis, in case you can't read it above....

Hailee Mai Hart is just a simple, normal girl. Or so she thought.

When she left her one-horse town for a college education in the big city, she never could've imagined what awaited her.

She's quickly thrown into a world filled with angels, danger, and a curse…her curse. Come to find out, she's not so simple after all. She's actually the last of her kind, and the fate of the world rests on her shoulders. She has one chance to save Earth, and it all comes down to one choice: Light or Darkness. What is right and what is wrong is all a matter of perspective, which leaves her heart dangerously tangled. No matter which path she takes people will die, and that's just not an option.

Will she be able to save everyone, or will she be the Soul Survivor?

Soul Survivor: The Hybrid Chronicles Book One will be available June 2013 (exact date will be forthcoming.)

You can make me feel super cool by marking it "Want To Read" over here on Goodreads! ;)

If you're as enchanted by this cover as I am take a quick moment to Share The Love in the comments below. (I might just have a random giveaway...who should leave you email addy just in case.)

The Forgotten Ones Release Partay!

Welcome! To The Forgotten Ones Release Partay! Woohoo! Today, the lovely Laura and I are partying it up for her new release and we've got all sorts of fun things going on! Eeep! I'm so excited...I love parties! Let's get to it!

Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

Ahhh! Aren't you excited?! Alrighty let's take a gander at this excerpt from TFO!

“What time do you get off work?” he asked.

I turned and narrowed my eyes at him. “I close at six. Then I have to balance the register, so around six thirty.”

Ethan looked down at his hands for a second, then glanced up at me through his thick lashes. “You want to get something to eat when you’re done?”

I licked my lips, his dark brown eyes pulling me in. I tore my gaze away and tried to focus on the computer screen. He didn’t say anything for a few moments, and I fidgeted, knowing he was watching me. When I turned toward him, his expression was so intense that my stomach somersaulted.

“Just one time,” he said quietly.


“Say yes, just one time.” Ethan slowly moved behind the counter, his eyes never leaving mine.

“If you don’t have a good time, fine. But, I’ve been trying to get you to give me a chance for years. Don’t act like you didn’t know.”

I shook my head slightly as he approached, wanting him closer but afraid of what it would mean.

He stopped, his brow creasing. “I won’t hurt you,” he whispered.

His expression was so earnest my mind went blank for a moment.

“Ethan,” I began, my thoughts scrambled. “You know I’d like to—”

“So say yes.”

I looked up at the ceiling. I was tired of always pushing him away. If I went out with him once, maybe then I could convince him too that this was a bad idea. I covered my face with my hands.  “All right,” I mumbled through my fingers.

“What was that?” I felt the warmth of Ethan’s hands as he pulled my own away from my face.

“I said all right,” I repeated, my insides fluttering.

He gathered my hands and pulled them close to his chest. His scent, clean and fresh like sun-warmed denim, made my knees go weak.

With his head tilted back, he exclaimed in a mock reverent tone, “Yes! Thank you! Six-thirty on the dot. Be ready. I’m picking you up!”

Now let's rock out to some of my fav partay jams! ;)
