COVER REVEAL FOR K ANNE RAINES

 
COVER REVEAL

FOR 
 
 Fallen From Grace by K Anne Raines
 
 
 
 
FallenFromGrace - Cover Reveal.jpg
 
 
 SYNOPSIS


Seventeen year-old Grace grows up knowing she’s different, but she always attributed it to a mother who didn’t want her, a father who abandoned her, and a curse that sets her apart. Despite those struggles, her grandfather remained her rock and confidant. Her life irrevocably shatters the day her grandfather dies.

The day of his funeral sets off a chain of events, making Grace question everything she’s ever known to be true, and as a result, who she can truly trust. She inherits his house, part of his money, his Guardian and something that ties them together.

Just before Grace’s 18th birthday, she is thrust into a world she couldn’t fathom existed and does everything she can to thwart the destiny suddenly forced upon her. She’s been chosen for greatness, but at what cost? With eyes now open, she must choose to either be Chosen, or watch those around her suffer the consequences.

Torn between the man who’s come to protect her and the one sent to destroy her, she teeters on the edge of decision, trying to come to grips with who she is, what she wants and what all of that means for her, those she loves and the rest of mankind.

TOUCHING ETERNITY by AIRICKA PHOENIX(11/29)

 

TOUCHING ETERNITY by AIRICKA PHOENIX





 



 
 
 
 
 
Blurb: TOUCHING ETERNITY
 
What would you choose?
She had everything but freedom.
He had nothing but his loyalty, his wits and his training.
She was a prisoner, a disease, not fit for the world, and she didn't know why. But she did know she wasn't allowed to die, she wasn't allowed to live and she wasn’t sane.
He was a soldier, a protector, but his foundation will be tested when he must destroy the only light in his dark world.
Thrown together, prisoner and keeper, their rebellion will splinter through time, changing the course of history and the fate of the world. Their love will challenge their greatest enemy and immortalize them forever.
Loyalty. Freedom. Love.
What would you risk?
"Let me die."
Pain darkened his eyes. "Never."

Author Bio:

Airicka Phoenix is the author of TOUCHING SMOKE,  TOUCHING ETERNITY, WANTING & INTENTIONS two stories as part of the Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she's not hammering away at the keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.

Kim:  Next question!

Jaime:  Well if YOU could be any character in ANY book or movie....who would you be?

Kim:  Wow, I would love to be so many characters, but if I picked just one, I would say Harry Potter. Not that I want to be a boy, but I mean, I want to go to Hogwarts.

Jaime:  Whoa totally with you there!!! I was going to call you Hermione anyway LOL  Oh! How's Pottermore?

Kim: Pottermore could be better. I think that I fell in love so much with the series and was looking forward to being a beta tester for it, that I was disappointed that it seemed so simple and they are so slow with coming out with the books. But other than that, I will stay with it. ThestralHallow26 :)

ELFIN COVER REVEAL!!!

Welcome everyone for the Elfin cover reveal by the most awesome Quinn Loftis!!!! 
 
 I am totally honored that she asked me to help!
I wouldn't have told her "no" anyway LOL
 
 


ARE YOU READY FOR
THE MOST AWESOME REVEAL?!
 
I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this!!!!  
 
 
Click HERE to be taken to Chapter 2

 
Elfin
Book 1 The Elfin Series
Before tonight Cassie Tate’s biggest concerns were whether she could pass Algebra and how she was going to keep Elora, her best friend, from dressing her in a skimpy fairy costume for Halloween. Her feet were firmly planted in suburban reality and she had no reason to believe her life would be anything but that of a typical teenager. That is until tonight, when Cassie saw something that no human was ever supposed to see; in the blink of an eye she was thrown into the world of the Light and Dark Elves.
He comes from a realm where light and dark have fought for millennia. He is of a race known to humans only in myths and legends. The darkness that lives inside him is a part of both who and what he is and it makes him the most gifted spy and assassin in the history of his time. His life is not his own; he lives in the service of the Dark Elf King. He slays who he must, has mercy on no one, is relentless in his hunt, and never tires of seeing his prey fall. He is Triktapic, assassin, spy, most feared of the Dark Elves.
Now, in the midst of his King’s complicated plans to expand the Dark Elves’ holdings into the mortal realm, for the first time, Trik finds his loyalties divided.  For no Elf, Dark or Light, can turn away from their Chosen.
Unbeknownst to the mortal realm, the battle between Light and Dark is being brought to their doorstep.  The only one who can keep it at bay holds darkness in his heart like a lover, and the one who can sway that heart must decide if she can look beyond his black past, beyond his evil nature and see the man he is destined to be.
The questions must be asked, does love really cover a multitude of sins? Can true love actually conquer all or will his darkness consume those around him until all that stands is an assassin with the blood of the mortal realm on his hands?

Desperate to seek out a new mentor and learn more about the mystical world he was sheltered from, Chance must travel far from home to hunt for answers. Ana Hughes has only known Chance for a few months, but he quickly found his way into her heart. Since being rescued from Chance’s power-hungry cousin, and coming back from death, Ana is unwilling to leave his side, and joins him on his quest to the Yucatan in search of a new mentor.

okay just books from my day


Who remembers this series? I think I read most. For how old they are, they should NOT cost 5.99 as an ebook.  Just saying. This did bring up some memories of me reading in my room WAY past my bedtime!!



This next book called The Giver by Lois Lowry is one that I had to read in the 8th grade.  I loved the insight of it.





 
Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

Sweet Valley High

Sweet Valley High by Francine Pascal
 
 
 
I just wanted to let you know that Sweet Valley High #1-#12
will be available on Kindle and for my Nookers as of November 27, 2012

I remember reading these books back in the early 90's although I do believe I started with Sweet Valley Twins.  Who could forget Jessica and Elizabeth? and The Unicorn Club?
