Here’s a message from the author.
 
Into the Light is the continuation of Mercy’s
journey with Nathaniel’s backstory mixed in. Readers will learn the history of
breaching while Mercy engages in the fight of her life. What draws me to the cover
are the colors. The palette is appealing and I love how it all swirls together
because it perfectly captures how Mercy’s two lives, one as a human and one as
a Breacher, are intertwined.
 
On to the reveal!

 Blurb: 

Mercy’s family is back together and the
threat of danger appears to have passed. But any relief she feels is short
lived as she is ripped from her body and thrown in jail. Gage and Nathaniel’s
plans to break Mercy out won’t exactly be easy. Stuffed full of a chemical
binding agent, Mercy is trapped inside the body of a convict without the
ability to breach and set herself free. Unfortunately for Mercy, being trapped
in jail becomes the least of her problems when she meets her evil twin,
Justice.

 

Caroline T Patti is the author of The

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.

OTHER BOOK(S) IN THE SERIES:

 

Nobody's-Goddess-Cover

 

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. 🙂

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.

The Requiem Red Cover

 

Patient Twenty-nine.

A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.

Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.

But the monster has other plans. The missing girls share one common thread…each was twenty-nine’s cell mate.

Will she be next?
