Publishing News: Synopsis & Cover Date Reveal

21 Mar

Website Update: 10 p.m.: The lovely Sam Dawon featured me on her blog, “Hot Tea and Dark Chocolate.” Please visit her page, and, if you’d like, read her piece on me here

Website Update: 4 p.m. I just joined ALL AUTHORS LIST, a free database for authors to connect. I’d love to see you all there.

I’m excited to give the synopsis–or the back cover–of Minutes Before Sunset today. My young-adult novel is planned to release this May, and, so far, everything is going the way it’s supposed to! But, without further ado, here’s the back description for the young-adult paranormal romance:

I really enjoyed all the submissions! Can't wait for the upcoming reveal :]

Two destines. One death.

She was undoubtedly a shade, but I didn’t know her.

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

He had gotten so close to me—and I couldn’t move—I couldn’t get away.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

All of this was announced on my Facebook Author Page on March 15th. Click here for the latest updates.

My Minutes Before Sunset page is updated and so is the Novels page. Be sure to check both of them for updated information. The future plans involve the cover reveal, the sneak peak, and a vote for whether or not it will be available as a Kindle or NOOK.

Can’t wait for the future 😀

    I’m curious about what the shades are because it sounds like a type of ghost. I like ghost stories, especially when they’re not used as monsters or the bad guys.
