Cover Reveal! Louise D. Gornall’s IN STONE

😀 Cover reveals (and rants) are probably my favorite thing.

 

This one is dear to my heart. It’s the new cover of Louise D. Gornall’s IN STONE! Louise is one of my favorite people on the planet. Follow her! You should also check out her blog. Here she is:

Isn’t she lovely? And here’s a bit about her!

Louise is a graduate of Garstang Community Academy. She’s currently studying for a BA (Hons) in English language and literature with special emphasis on creative writing. YA aficionado. Brit bird. Film nerd. Identical twin. Junk food enthusiast. Rumored pink Power Ranger. Zombie apocalypse 2012 survivor, and avid collector of book boyfriends.

And here’s a little about IN STONE:

Beau Bailey is suffering from a post-break-up meltdown when she
happens across a knife in her local park and takes it home. Less than a week later, the new boy in school has her trapped in an alley; he’s sprouted horns and is going to kill Beau unless she hands over the knife.

Until Eighteenth-century gargoyle, Jack, shows up to save her.

Jack has woken from a century-long slumber to tell Beau that she’s unwittingly been drafted into a power struggle between two immortal races: Demons and Gargoyles. The knife is the only one in existence capable of killing immortals and they’ll tear the world apart to get it back. To draw the warring immortals away from her home, Beau goes with Jack in search of the mind-bending realm known as the Underworld, a place where they’ll hopefully be able to destroy the knife and prevent all hell from breaking loose. That is, provided they can outrun the demons chasing them.

That sounds SO badass. Are you ready for the cover?

Cover Reveal! TUR & ELSKER by ST Bende

It’s that time again. Yes. Cover reveal time! (Almost. We’ll get there.)

Today’s books are by my twitter buddy (and Amazon bestselling author) ST Bende! She’s great, and if you don’t follow her, you definitely should. Here she is!

And here’s a bit about her:

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

Scandinavian culture, eh? I do believe that means there are going to be some very attractive Norsemen in the Elsker series. Which, I’m totally okay with. Eric Northman, anyone?

So, without further ado (okay, maybe a little further), I give you . . .

TUR
The Elsker Saga #0.5
by ST Bende

Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. On the surface she has it all — great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world comes crashing down. Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga’s best friend Ull is first on their list. With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because from the moment this battle begins, Inga’s happily ever after will be nothing more than a memory.

Some things are worth fighting for.

That is GLORIOUS. And what’d I say about the Norsemen? Oh, and guess what.

WE’RE NOT EVEN DONE.

Yep, there’s another one. Scroll down just a little further for . . .

ELSKER
The Elsker Saga #1
by ST Bende

You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God – an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms.

Her orderly life just got very messy.

So there we have it, TUR & ELSKER. Be sure to add these lovely things to GoodReads and like I said, you definitely want to follow ST Bende on Twitter.
