Cover Reveal: Write Your Novel

This is an odd day to do a post. I know I try to keep the posting to Mondays but the covers must be shown when they must be shown. No changing.

So I come to you on this Thursday. To show you a book, that I probably need in my life. It’s called Go Teen Writer: Write Your Novel.

I’m not a teen, but I do need a kick in the pants to get my novel written.

Book Description:

You have a story to tell, don’t you? Or maybe you simply want to try your hand at fiction writing. Perhaps you’ve given it your best effort, but simply didn’t have enough tools in your tool box to finish that first draft. Wherever you’re at with this novel-writing thing, popular bloggers Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore totally understand.
They know it’s hard to finish a first draft. To stay motivated until the end. To feel like a “real” writer. They know because they’ve been there too.
In Go Teen Writers: Write Your Novel, you’ll learn: 

  • There is no such thing as one right way to write a novel.
  • How to take an idea and give it a beginning, middle, and end.
  • What story structure means and how it strengthens a book.
  • Different approaches to plotting a novel.
  • How to develop characters worth reading about.
  • Strategies for creating memorable storyworlds and settings.
  • What theme is and how to use it to enrich your story.
  • What to do when your first draft is finished.

There’s no doubt about it. Learning to write a novel from beginning to end is a challenge. But with this book as your guide, you’ll see that when you’re in possession of the right tools, you’re capable of finishing what you start. You’ll be empowered and encouraged—as if you had a writing coach (or three!) sitting alongside you.

I love it, it’s like inception with notebooks. Note-ception. It’s so meta, the feel of reaching for a blank notebook but instead you get a book full of notes on writing.

Anyway I love it. To learn more go to the Go Teen Writers site,

Iggy and Oz: book one review, and book two Cover Reveal.

Today I bring you a fun cover reveal for book two a super fun series.

The series is called Iggy and Oz. It’s about two brothers who have to deal with all kinds of weird things in their neighborhood, but of course the adults never see any of it.

The first book was called Iggy and Oz and the Plastic Dinos of Doom. I loved it and had a ton of fun while reading about the boys chasing these living plastic dinosaur toys all over their neighborhood. You can purchase it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WF8WR8Q/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

As of this writing it’s only 99 cents for the ebook. It should be free on Monday August 3rd and 4th 2020.

If you still aren’t convinced to check out this book (for free) then here’s my actual Amazon review:

This book was an enjoyable read even as a single adult. While I’m sure kids will absolutely love the absurdity of plastic dinosaurs coming to life, adults will find plenty of references to childhood favorites to keep you entertained. Everything from Scooby Doo jokes to an Indian in the cupboard reference.

Iggy is a humorous narrator who’s parents seem to be raising him to be a first class geek. I love his references and his off topic asides.

This is the first book to a series that will feature strange cases in a small neighborhood. I will be very interested to see what happens next.

Are you ready to the see the cover and learn about book two?

What if you discovered soda pop that gave you superpowers with each sip?

Iggy Risner is back with another laugh out loud neighborhood adventure. However, this time the stakes are much higher. The discovery of a long-forgotten soda pop machine is about to turn the neighborhood on its end. Not only does the soda taste great- it gives every kid who drinks it: Superpowers.

Flying Orange, Walk through walls root beer and invisible grape. For Iggy, the chance to be the neighborhood hero is too tempting to pass up.

When a group of high school bullies gets their hands on the soda- Iggy joins forces with his arch-nemesis.

Will they keep the neighborhood from being ruled by a gang of high school tormentors? Or will they find themselves losing a battle that could cause every kid to live in terror?

Iggy & Oz: The Soda Pop Wars will make your child’s imagination soar and make the hair behind their necks stand on end as they read on. Full of twist and turns, this is perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Last Kids on Earth.

Order your copy today and get in on the adventure. The pre-order price is only $1.99.

I’m so excited, this book not only has another unique cover with a nostalgic feel, it just sounds super amazing.

About the book

Cabernet would give almost anything to be remembered–except his freedom. 

 Cursed to be eternally forgotten, Cabernet grew up walking a dangerous, lonely line between the world of mankind and the world of fairy. Now known only by a faceless reputation as a rogue and fairy aficionado, he wanders ceaselessly with the cat Maugrim as company. 

 Then the king dares order him to eliminate a magical foe in northern waters, and threatens to attack fairy lands if Cabernet refuses. As an increased annoyance, he is saddled with a stiff naval officer, the king’s elderly personal advisor, and the advisor’s nurse, a charming young woman named Rosemary who can inexplicably remember him. 

 Cabernet wants to complete this mission quickly without actually facing the enemy, a dangerous enchantress who nearly killed him before. But sea perils and fearsome monsters blindside his every trick and turn. Moreover, he is somehow growing fiercely attached to the human tag-a-longs.

 As the enchantress’s deadly net tightens around them, Cabernet must face the terrors of his past in order to save his new-found family–and future.

Enjoy this standalone YA fantasy that combines dark whimsy with fairy tale magic, plus a side of Oliver Twist and an enchanting romantic subplot.

The Luck Child releases June 9th.

Spice Bringer Cover Reveal

Today I bring you a tale of magic and mystery. The story is the magic; the mystery is, what will the cover look like?

Spice Bringer by H. L. Burke is the next release due out by the always awesome and never disappointing, Uncommon Universe Press. I am super excited for it. Read below to find out why?

From the Back cover:

cover reveal graphicA deadly disease. A vanishing remedy. A breathless journey.

 All her life, Niya’s known she will die young from the fatal rasp. She survives only with the aid of vitrisar spice and a magical, curmudgeonly fire salamander named Alk. Then an ambitious princess burns down the vitrisar grove in an effort to steal Alk so she can claim her rightful throne. Joined by Jayesh, a disgraced monk, Niya and Alk must flee to the faraway Hidden Temple with the last vitrisar plant, or all who suffer from the rasp will perish.

 But even as Niya’s frustration and banter with Jayesh deepen to affection, the rasp is stealing away her breath and life.

 For a girl with limited time and a crippling quest, love may be more painful than death.

***

Author PictureAuthor Bio:

 Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and was always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes that home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.
