Cover Reveal and Giveaway: SCEPTER OF FIRE by @VickiLWeavil #FridayReveals #Month9Squad #Month9Books

Today Vicki L. Weavil and Month9Books are revealing the cover and first chapter
for SCEPTER OF FIRE, a companion novel in the CROWN OF ICE Series!
Which releases October 18, 2016! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to be
one of the first readers to receive an eGalley!!
 
Here’s a message from the author.
 
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly
Duckling” and “The Steadfast Tin Soldier,” SCEPTER OF FIRE is a companion book
to CROWN OF ICE, my retelling of “The Snow Queen.” It takes place a few years
later, in the midst of an invasion by a power-mad foreign emperor, and includes
most of the characters from CROWN OF ICE.
 
However the protagonist in SCEPTER OF FIRE is someone new—17yo Varna Lund,
an ugly duckling among swans, who’s certain her destiny lies in taking on the mantle
of village healer after the death of heraged mentor.
But when a young soldier enlists her aid to care for his injured friend, Varna and her sister, Gerda,
are catapulted into the war that has engulfed their country.
Forced to flee enemy troops with her sister and the two soldiers, Varna must also
evade her mentor, Sten Rask—revealed to be a powerful mage seeking the enchanted mirror
hidden by a former Snow Queen.
 
To protect the mirror, and their country, Varna, Gerda, and the soldiers join forces
with a sorceress, an enchanted reindeer, a brilliant scholar, and a young woman
traveling with a wolf. But Varna faces a terrible temptation. Promised beauty and power
by the devilishly handsome Rask, she must choose—achieve her own desires,
or protect a society that has never embraced her.
The Cover:
I love how this cover matches the cover of CROWN
OF ICE, and yet is different enough to set the books apart. Both feature
striking young women, but whereas CROWN is glazed with icy blue tones, SCEPTER
is saturated with reds, golds and other fiery hues. If you look closely, you
can even see flames reflected in the girl’s eyes—very appropriate for a book
that deals with sorcerers who wield fire. Although the cover model is not an
“ugly duckling,” she does accurately reflect the protagonist during one portion
of the book, which I will not reveal at this point due to “spoilers”!

Author: Vicki L. Weavil
Pub. Date: October 18, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books
Format: Paperback and eBook
Find it: Amazon | B&N | TBD |Goodreads
Sharp as pine needles, and twice as
bitter, seventeen-year-old Varna Lund’s determined to become a healer. At least
patients don’t care about her looks, unlike the young men who spurn
her for eighteen-year-old Gerda or even
her younger sisters. An ugly duckling among swans,
Varna hopes to bury her passionate
nature in useful work.
Her healing skills are put to the test
when Varna encounters Erik Stahl, a young soldier who’s
deserted the battlefield to carry his
injured friend, Anders Nygaard, to safety. Varna, enlisting the
aid of Gerda, cares for Anders in
secret.
But a brutal betrayal catapults the four
young people into life on the run, where Varna discovers
her old mentor is actually a powerful
wizard. Seeking the enchanted mirror hidden by a former
Snow Queen, the wizard hopes to use
Gerda as a pawn in his plan to aid the invading emperor.
Other forces ally against the wizard,
including an auburn-haired sorceress, an enchanted
reindeer, a brilliant scholar, and a
young woman traveling with a wolf. Along with the soldiers
and Gerda, they vow to prevent the
mirror from falling into enemy hands. But tempted with promises of beauty and
power from her now devilishly handsome mentor, Varna must choose
between her own desires and the good of
a society that’s never embraced her.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s
“The Ugly Duckling” and “The Steadfast Tin Soldier”,
SCEPTER OF FIRE is a companion book to CROWN OF ICE.

M9B Friday Reveal and Giveaway: un/FAIR Cover and Chapter One by Steven Harper @StevenPiziks @Month9Books

Today Steven Harper and Month9Books are
revealing the cover and first chapter for un/FAIR which releases September 6,
2016! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to be one of the first readers to
receive an eGalley!!
Here’s a quick introduction from the author.
When the doctor said my son Aran was autistic, my world turned upside-down. 
I spent years playing special games with him to help him understand the world
better.  But in the process, I learned tounderstand him.  While I struggled to
pull him into our world, he quietly pulled me into his. 
This book came out of that.
People always ask authors–including me–why I got a certain scene on the cover
or why I didn’t put a particular character on the front.  The truth is, authors almost
never draw the book covers.  We get a picture of it by email, and it’s always a surprise,
like getting an early birthday present.  Sometimes the present
is a wool sweater you want to wad into a ball and stuff under the bed. 
Sometimes the present is a toy you didn’t know you wanted until you got it. 
The cover for un/FAIR was the latter.  Ryan looks very much like I imagined him in my head,
and the salamanders creeping down the top make it clear this isn’t a happy fairy book.
The artist even snuck in a reference to the Fibonacci sequence!  I loved getting this one.
On to the reveal!

It’s difficult enough to live in the neighborhood “freakazoid” house.  It’s even more difficult when you’re autistic and neither your family nor best friend really understands you.  So when Ryan November wakes up on his eleventh birthday with the unexpected ability to see the future, he braces himself for trouble.  But even his newfound power doesn’t anticipate that the fair folk–undines, salamanders, gnomes, and sylphs–want him dead, dead, dead.  Ryan races to defend himself and his family against unrelenting danger from the fairy realm so he can uncover the truth about his family history–and himself.  Except as Ryan’s power grows, the more enticing the fairy realm becomes, forcing him to choose between order and chaos, power and family.  And for an autistic boy, such choices are never cut and dry.
 
Excerpt

Un/FAIRPART I

CHAPTER ONE

Ryan November woke up on his eleventh birthday and knew he’d be able to see the future by breakfast. He rolled over. His clock said 6:56, so he couldn’t get up for four more minutes. That was all right. He didn’t mind waiting.

Not until he saw the string.

The string was made of liquid silver and lay piled in the exact center of a perfect square of May sunshine on his bedroom floor. It gleamed where the sunlight struck it. Ryan stared. He had never seen it before. The messy string looked out of place in the perfectly neat room. In Ryan’s room, every piece of clothing hung in the closet or lay folded in a dresser drawer. Every book sat in alphabetical order on the shelf. Every toy and video game stood arranged in rows more orderly than troops of soldiers. The squiggle of silver string on the floor made Ryan’s head itch on the inside, where he couldn’t scratch. He wanted to pick the string up and put it away.

The clock stopped him. The little red numbers read 6:57 now — three more minutes to go, even though he wanted to examine the string very badly.

Maybe he could find a way around the problem. Automatically, Ryan ran a flowchart in his mind. If he had written it down, it would have looked like this:

[See Figure 1.]

The chart put him at “Stay in bed,” so he lay there, trying not to scratch his head or squirm with suspense, until at last the numbers flicked to 8:00. Ryan pushed the blankets aside and hurried over to pick up the string, still squiggled across the floor. The moment he touched it, the string moved on its own. It jumped into his hand like a little snake. He felt a cold, tingly sensation, and the string was gone. Instead, there was a perfect circle of raised skin around the palm of his left hand.

“Wow,” Ryan said.

Ryan liked circles. He liked their symmetry, the way you couldn’t tell where they started or ended, the way every part was like every other part. He traced the circle with his finger and smiled. He could have a circle with him wherever he went. Then, because Saturday was a brown day, he put on brown cargo pants, a brown shirt, and brown socks before pulling on his shoes and heading for the stairs. Ryan had red-blond hair that he tried to keep combed but always got away from him, a thin sprinkling of freckles that thickened in the summer, and somber eyes that his best friend Alison always described as “blue pools of inexactitude,” which bugged Ryan because he didn’t know what it meant. At the last second, Ryan remembered to grab his cell phone from his dresser. The circle had almost made him forget. There were already two text messages on the screen:

Happy Shared B-Day, R!!

And

Happy day kiddo!

He texted back, his thumbs jumping across the keypad like precise, tiny frogs:

Happy Shared Birthday to you, too, Alison!

and
Thanks, Mom.

Ryan never felt quite right abbreviating, so he didn’t. Then he traced the circle on his hand one more time and tromped downstairs.

There were fourteen wooden steps leading down to the kitchen. Each one had nine wooden pegs pounded in a straight line across the front edge, and Ryan automatically counted them all at a glance. 126 pegs, just like yesterday and the day before that and the day before that. He liked the number 126. The digits added up to nine, which was also the number of pegs in each step. The number 126 was a good number to start the day with. He jumped over step number twelve. Ryan didn’t like the number twelve. It was divisible by too many other numbers — itself, six, four, three, two, and one. That was half the numbers between one and twelve. Ryan always felt like twelve would keep dividing itself until it vanished entirely, and he didn’t want to step on a stair that might disappear.

Ryan rounded the turn in the staircase and emerged in the kitchen. It was big and airy, and right now it smelled like butter and hot batter. Aunt Zara was on breakfast duty this morning, and today she had settled on pancakes, Ryan’s favorite. Ryan quietly took his usual place on the bench that ran down the long wooden table. Everything in the Cottage was wood — walls, floor, cupboards, ceiling. Wood hinges held the doors on, and wood latches held them shut. Raw exposed beams ran up to support the roof, and the shingles were made of flat wood. The entire house was held together with wooden pegs. Ryan’s dad boasted that not one scrap of steel held the house together. Instead, the builders had used copper and plastic and ceramic. Ryan liked this. Metals like iron and steel felt heavy and harsh and made his stomach queasy.

“My, my. Happy birthday, Ryan,” Aunt Zara said, and put a plate of pancakes in front of him. Ryan tensed a little. Food you could count had to come in even numbers. Mom always remembered this when she cooked, but Aunt Zara sometimes forgot, and it could turn a simple meal into a disaster. Quickly he counted. Two pancakes, two pieces of sausage. Ryan sighed with relief. It would be bad to get the wrong number of pancakes on his birthday.

Ryan glanced up at Aunt Zara. She favored blue blouses and long skirts that flowed together like waterfalls. She wore her blond hair loose around her shoulders except for two blue barrettes that kept her bangs out of her face. She had a long nose and a wide mouth. At the moment, she was smiling with her teeth showing. Her voice had an upbeat tone to it, and she moved like her body was relaxed. Ryan added these things up and decided Aunt Zara was happy. The appropriate response, Ryan had learned, was a smile. So he smiled. Then he remembered that she had just given him something — his breakfast. It meant he had to say something.

“Thank you,” he said slowly, and tensed slightly, wondering if he had gotten it wrong. It seemed like he got it wrong a lot.

“You’re welcome.” Aunt Zara tried to pat his shoulder, but Ryan ducked away. “Sorry, sweetie. I forget.”

Ryan didn’t like it when people touched him. It felt beyond weird to feel their skin sliding over his in ways he couldn’t control. And a hug felt like being suffocated in wet blankets. When he was little, he had screamed and hit. Now he ducked and dodged.

Aunt Zara headed back for the stove. Ryan was turning to his pancakes, silver fork poised, when his world flickered for a second. Everything grew brighter, as if someone had doubled the sunlight, and he heard a knock. A dark-haired girl poked her head through the screen door and said, “Is he still eating breakfast?” and her voice had a strange, ghostly quality to it. Then the extra light vanished and everything snapped back to normal. Ryan realized no time had passed at all.

A knock came, and a dark-haired girl poked her head through the screen door. “Is he still eating breakfast?” Ryan stopped eating to stare. He had just seen this happen twice.

“Come in, Alison,” Aunt Zara sang out. “You’re just in time for pancakes.”

Alison Ferrier stalked through the door and angled across the kitchen to the table, her skinny legs and sharp elbows flopping carelessly in all directions. Even her ponytail looked sharp. Ryan watched her, caught in an awful fascination. One day she was going to puncture something; he was sure of it. Alison was Ryan’s best — his only — friend, and she lived in a tiny trailer in the woods with three sisters and two brothers and one mother (making seven people total, and seven was a prime number). Like him, she was turning eleven today (another prime number, and if you added one and one, you got two). It took two people to be friends, and two was the only even prime number. Ryan liked that.

Alison folded herself onto the bench beside him. “Two pancakes, two sausages,” she said, looking at his plate. “Will it bug you if I have three and three?”

“No,” Ryan said. “That plate over there” — he pointed — “has one pancake on it, so that makes everything Fibonacci.” He said the word the Italian way: feeb-oh-NAH-chee.

“Fibonacci?”

“You know. Zero and one make one, then one and one make two, two and one make three.”

“Oh, right. Cool.”

“My, my. Doesn’t your family feed you?” Aunt Zara asked, setting a plate down in front of her.

“Nope,” Alison said, her mouth already full, and Ryan couldn’t tell if this was a lie or not. He thought about asking, then decided not to and ate more pancakes instead.

“Today is our birthday,” Ryan said. “May first.”

“Yep.” Alison grinned, showing a big mouthful of smooshed-up Fibonacci pancake. Ryan laughed. “Where’s everyone else?”

“I don’t know,” Ryan said.

“Your dad went down to the lake for some early fishing,” Aunt Zara said from the stove. “Aunt Ysabeth and your mother are wrapping birthday presents. So stay out of your mother’s bedroom, Ryan, if you don’t mind.”

There was another flick. The world brightened again, and this time Aunt Zara dropped a spatula. It clattered on the stove. Alison spilled her milk, creating a chaotic mess that rushed over the table and dripped into Ryan’s lap.

The world flicked back to normal. Aunt Zara dropped her spatula. It clattered on the stove. Alison reached for her milk glass. Ryan flinched at the upcoming mess. Chaos was the worst. It hurt his stomach and made his head feel like it was going to explode. So he reached out with his own hand and slapped hers down, pinning it to the table.

Nobody's Lady Cover

 

For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.

Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.

In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll isn’t in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither is willing to lose.

Hey Amy! Welcome. 

So, we asked Amy … Can you describe your writing process, and whether you are you a plotter or a panster, how did that process help or hurt as you wrote/write a sequel or trilogy, what did you enjoy most, and what was the hardest part of writing Nobody’s Lady, what do you hope readers come away with after ready this series. 

Here’s Amy’s reply ~

When I wrote the first draft of Nobody’s Goddess, I was a total pantser. I was a pantser for the mess I worked on for nine years before that as well (now shelved, although parts of it inspired Nobody’s Goddess).  I wrote the first draft of Nobody’s Goddess in just nine days! However, it went through many, many, many revisions after that before publication, so the work was far from over.

When I was offered representation by my former agent, we discussed the idea of making the book a series and he asked me to write outlines for books two and three so he could show them to any editors who were interested in the first book. This was the first time I wrote outlines for any of my projects, and I was surprised to find it wasn’t impossible or even limiting. After a brainstorming session, the plot just flowed out of me and I went ahead and wrote the first three chapters—and then had to put it all aside for a year and a half before I got an offer and the go-ahead from my publisher to write them.

Meanwhile, I tried writing one more manuscript without outlining and I got stuck at the end—so stuck I shelved it. I remembered how I liked outlining (although I’d yet to use an outline to write a manuscript) and vowed to always outline from then on. I allow myself to go off outline when I come up with something better on the fly, but at least I always have that basic framework in place to fall back on. (It’s not foolproof, though. The second time I attempted that aforementioned shelved manuscript even with an outline, I still got stuck and shelved the second version. I don’t know if I’ll ever get that story written.)

When it was time to write the second and third books in The Never Veil Series, the outlines were immensely helpful. Before then, I had only a vague idea of how to sustain an entire series, but with the outline, I knew how to build to each climax and plant the seeds for the overall themes and issues. However, the hardest part of writing Nobody’s Lady was trying to inject some life into the middle book. (It also took me the longest to draft out of any of the books in the series—nine days for book one, a month and a half for book three, and four months for book two, the shortest in the series!) The first book introduced the world and the conflict and I was really looking forward to writing the third book and resolving everything, but the second book still had to stand on its own. Luckily, I had a theme to focus on: the characters adapting to the huge change that occurred in their village at the end of the first book. I also enjoyed discovering who certain characters really were, as this book was the first time they could truly be themselves. (I was surprised they weren’t as nice and easygoing as I originally wrote them when they were under the control of magic!) I hope readers come away with a new perspective on the first book and ask themselves if the “happy” relationships were really happy, considering the men in the village were forced to fall in love. By the end of the series, I hope they’ve thought about gender roles and what it means to love someone on equal footing.

 

That’s awesome, thank you so much for your insights and for being here today. 🙂

The Natural History of Us - cover

About THE NATURAL HISTORY OF US:

One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who’s forever owned his heart.

Justin Carter has a secret. He’s not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy…and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she’d ever forgive him.

Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she’s done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she’ll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.

For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate’s given him a shot at redemption, he’s determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton…well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.
