Genesis Girl Cover

 

Eighteen-year-old Blanca has lived a sheltered life. Her entire childhood has been spent at Tabula Rasa School where she’s been protected from the Internet. Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint has made her extremely valuable and upon graduation Blanca, and those like her, are sold to the highest bidders. Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But the McNeal’s are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is. All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost impenetrable. By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only chance of escape is to go online.

excerpt

Seth rolls his eyes. He clearly doesn’t get it.
So I inch closer to him. “For centuries holy people … nuns … monks … hermits … they locked themselves away and took on the sins of the world. They were living sacrifices of prayer, and it made the whole world better. They kept knowledge alive through the Dark Ages. Vestals are living sacrifices too. We are reminders that you don’t need chips and you don’t need texts, and you shouldn’t give away every last piece of yourself for one more hit.”
“Because selling yourself is so much better?”
I square my shoulders. “Yes.”
“But you’ll never have a normal life. Doesn’t that bother you?”
“Of course not. Not when ‘normal’ is so messed up. Not when ‘normal’ gave a whole generation of people brain cancer.”

Cover Reveal: Chasing Truth by Julie Cross presented by Entangled Teen with Giveaway

EntangledTeenComingSoon

 

A story of a girl who’s in a family of con artists? Sign me up!

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for

Chasing Truth by Julie Cross

presented by Entangled Teen!

Read on for a special message from Julie!!

 

Special Note from the Author, Julie Cross:

 

I’m so excited to reveal this cover! I saw it months ago and not only loved it, but felt like I finally had something tangible to show the vibe of this story. Chasing Truth began as a teen romance featuring a girl with a unique past–she’s from a family of con-artists. Until recently, Ellie spent her entire life living under multiple identities, being everyone and anyone. So falling for new neighbor, Miles, as herself is brand new territory and that definitely creates a bit of a rocky relationship for my two leads. While the story is still built on all of that, it also evolved into a slightly different recipe as I wrote.

Chasing Truth is 1 part mystery/thriller, 1 part high school drama, 1 part family story, and 2 parts (maybe 3…) romance. If you’re a fan of the TV series Veronica Mars, you’ll find that Chasing Truth has a similar feel. I can’t wait for all of you to have a chance to the read the book in September, but for now, I’ll have to settle for showing off this beautiful cover!

Countdown!

https://countdownsbyerin.com/cd/entangled/truth/

CHASING-TRUTH-500X750

 

At Holden Prep, the rich and powerful rule the school—and they’ll do just about anything to keep their dirty little secrets hidden.

When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions.

Eleanor might not trust him—she doesn’t even like him—but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he thinks she’s the killer.

Blurb:

Seventeen-year-old, Eric, is a kick-butt squire to the most revered knight in Fallhollow. Well he would be if Sir Trogsdill allowed him to do anything even remotely awesome. Determined to prove his worth, Eric sets out to find the mythical paladin summoned to protect the realm from the evil lurking nearby.

Sixteen-year-old, David, spends his days collecting school honors, winning archery tournaments, and trying not to fall in love with his scrappy best friend, Charlotte.

Right when things start to get interesting, he is whisked away to the magical realm of Fallhollow where everyone thinks he’s some sort of paladin destined to fulfill a two-hundred-year-old prophecy. He’s supposed to help kill a dragon with some sort of magic key. The same key that happens to adorn the neck of an annoying squire who’s too wrapped up in proving himself to be much help to anyone.

With egos as big as the dragon they need to destroy, Eric and David must get over themselves, or watch everything they know and love, burn.

Hey, Jen!

Thanks so much for joining us here today, we’re really excited about your book. Can you share your playlist with us? 

OMGosh, I was afraid someone was going to ask me for this. Where do I begin?

I listen to a lot of music from country to classic rock, to classical, opera and everything in between (except for rap. Just can’t get into it). When I write, I usually don’t listen to music with words in it because hearing people singing distracts from what I’m trying to say. I end up signing along and them all of a sudden I’m staring at my work thinking. “What was I trying to say here?”

Because I write YA fantasy, and because I always envision my books as movies, I get a lot of my inspiration from online video games and movie scores. There are hours upon hours of listening to soundtracks, etc., and when I find something that I like, it goes on my Spotify play list.

In the case of IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRAGON KING, you will see songs that you might know sung by artists like Katy Perry and Fall Out Boys. They are there because they remind me in some way of David or Eric, both protagonists, David from our world, Eric from the magical world of Fallhollow. I hope once people read the book, they’ll be able to understand more why I chose them.

The list is extensive and at this time, they are not in any particular order, though I have begun to sort them out. I’ve written the names of the songs and their artists out for you, but if you want to listen to them, please check out my Spotify playlist which you can find here (if you don’t have a free Spotify account, you can sign in using your Facebook account). I also have the playlist on my website, but you will still need to log in to Spotify to listen.

So, here you go. I hope you enjoy and if you have any questions about why I chose the songs, please feel free to reach out to me on my website or on Goodreads. I’d love to hear from you!!!

Author Interview and Giveaway: ARGOS by PHILLIP W. SIMPSON @Month9Books @PhillipWSimpson @chapterxchapter

argos ii

Today we’re lucky enough to host the amazing author Phillip W. Simpson on his Argos blog tour. Yippee!! Okay, I know. Calm down. But seriously. Yay!! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway later in this post!

Phillip’s going to answer a couple of questions for us, but first … some important stuff. Like this gorgeous cover …

Argos

Argos by Phillip W. Simpson
Release Date: May 10, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books

Blurb:

Loyalty has no limits

Raised from a pup by Greek hero, Odysseus, Argos has come to learn the true meaning of love and loyalty. But when Odysseus leaves for the Trojan War, little does Argos know it will be 20 years before he sees his master again. With Odysseus gone his wife, Penelope, and son, Telemachus, are easy prey for neighboring kings and the Gods themselves.

But Argos was tasked to keep them safe until Odysseus returns and that is a promise he is determined to keep – whatever the cost. Told through his eyes, Argos recounts the story of his life – his pain, his joy, his triumphs and failures; his endurance in the face of hardships almost too great to believe.

Above all else, Argos strives to do what is right – and to remain loyal to his King when all others have given up hope. To live long enough to see his beloved master one more time.

This epic myth of love and loyalty proves that a dog really is man’s best friend.

And now for some fun author questions:  

Can you share some of your manuscript playlist with us? 

• Doesn’t remind me – Audioslave
• Going the distance – Cake
• Block rockin’ beats (good to write fight scenes to) – Chemical brothers
• Photograph – Ed Sheeran
• Sadeness – Enigma
• I started a joke – Faith no more

What were your favorite books as a middle schooler or teen and why?

I was pretty lucky growing up. My parents were huge book lovers. My father collects books. He is a bit obsessed. Anyway, I could just pick whatever I wanted from the bookshelf. I’m a bit like that myself. I have a large collection of books and I want my son to cherry pick whatever books of mine he wants.

• The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings (obviously). These books got me into reading. I discovered a love of fantasy because of these books. Thank you, Tolkien.

• Anything by Piers Anthony. A bit childish but I loved them at the time (probably because I was a child).

• Anything by Julian May – Saga of the Exiles was magnificent. Such a complicated and believable world.

• Anything by Stephen Donaldson – the Cronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Love the Bloodguard. Read the series as a middle schooler and although some of the content is inappropriate for that age, I loved it regardless. Actually, YA didn’t really exist when I was growing up. You read kids’ books and then progressed to adult books. I was such a voracious reader that I quickly exhausted what was considered ‘appropriate’ and just read what I felt like.

• Anything by Iain M. Banks (his science fiction.)

• Anything by Jack Vance. And I do mean anything. He wrote over 50 books and I love every single one. I think I started with Lyonesse as a middle schooler and then read all his back catalogue. He is one of the greats. A true word smith. I love him.

• The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. Lots of other great books here but I particularly loved her dragons. The White Dragon was awesome.

• Spellsinger by Alan Dean Foster. Rock and roll man!

• Dune and all the sequels (Frank Herbert). Everything about this world is cool. The Sardukar, the Freemen, the Sand worms.

• The Forever War by Joe Haldeman. Probably my favorite book of all time and I read this as a teen (I would not recommend this to a middle schooler).

• Gateway by Frederick Pohl. Great concept. I used to go to sleep dreaming about what I do if I discovered lots of Heechee ‘treasure’

Wow, what a great list of reads!

Thanks so much for being here today. I’m excited about your new book and can’t wait to read.

 

Okay guys, I’ve already bought my copy, now go and get yours!

Oh, and also just before I go. This …

Can anyone survive being lost in Luntharda?

No amount of training has prepared Jaevid Broadfeather for the frontlines of battle. Now facing the true horrors of war, with Luntharda looming on the horizon, Jaevid has begun to question everything he thought about his heritage. The only thing keeping him going is his oath to protect his dragonrider brothers. But in an instant, even that slips through Jaevid’s fingers as he steps from the safety of his dragon’s saddle into the depths of his mother’s wild homeland—the kingdom of the gray elves.

Stranded in Luntharda with his partner, Lieutenant Jace Rordin, Jaevid must finally confront the demons of his own past as he uncovers the truth about a war that began before he was ever born. Armed with a new appreciation for destiny, and flanked by his trusted friends, Jaevid moves to make the final strike against an enemy that has hidden in plain sight for far too long.

One kingdom’s traitor will become the world’s last hope.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:

 

Fledgling

 

When Jaevid Broadfeather is given the rare opportunity to become a dragonrider for the king’s army, the 15-year-old boy has no idea that he is part of a conspiracy that will rock the very foundations of the kingdom.

Jaevid Broadfeather has grown up as a wartime refugee, hiding from the world because of his mixed racial heritage. He feels his future is hopeless, until a chance encounter with a wild dragon lands him in Blybrig Academy—a place usually forbidden to anyone but the rich and royal. But Jaevid’s case is special; no dragon has voluntarily chosen a rider in decades, so the proud riders of Blybrig must begrudgingly let him join their brotherhood despite his bloodline. Lieutenant Sile Derrick, a sternly tempered man with a mysterious past, becomes his instructor and immediately takes a peculiar interest in Jaevid’s future.

While struggling through the rigorous physical demands of training, things begin to go awry. Jaevid witnesses the king’s private guards kidnapping Sile in the dead of night. When none of the elder riders are willing to help him, Jaevid begins a dangerous adventure to save his instructor.

Everything Jaevid learned at the academy will now be put to the ultimate test.

Avian

 

Jaevid wants to pass his Avian year of training . . . but will he even survive it?

What kind of power is lurking inside him? After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen. Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few pushups and fancy sword moves. Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago—until Felix assures him the king is very much alive. With his strange powers growing stronger by the day, and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not—he wonders if he will even survive it.

The truth will soon be set loose.
