Cover Reveals and Giveaways

This is an exciting month for my Write On to Build On writing support group. One member is revealing the cover of her third book in a trilogy. The other is revealing her first cover. And my cover will be revealed next weekend!

Without further ado, Crystal Collier:


TIMELESS (#3 Maiden of Time) by Crystal Collier #CoverReveal



Book Title: TIMELESS (Maiden of Time #3)
Author: Crystal Collier
Genre: YA Paranormal Historical
Release Date: November 1, 2016



TIME IS THE ENEMY

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat, along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart, the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

And now Sheri Larsen:


Description: Forget having a lively after school social life, 
Ebony Charmed is fighting to keep the entire Afterlife alive.

Ebony’s less-than-average spirit tracking abilities are ruining more than sixth grade at Motley Junior High: School for the Psychically & Celestially gifted. Her parents argue so much her dad moved out. And, even though he’s scared of his own shadow and insists on bringing his slimy, legless lizard everywhere they go, Ebony wouldn’t survive without her best friend, Fleishman. 

When Ebony’s Deadly Creatures & Relics’ project goes missing, she learns her missing project is one of the keys to saving the spirit world. Now Ebony and Fleishman must battle beasts from Norse Mythology to retrieve her project before spirits are lost, the Well of Urd dries up, and Ebony loses all hope of reuniting her family. But someone lies in wait, and he has other plans...including creating a new world of spirits without them in it.


Motley Education has been aligned with Core Standards for grades 4-7. A guide will be available on the author’s website to download for FREE after the book’s release date of October 10, 2016.



Sheri's also unveiled her new website - Motley Education friendly with kid fun stuff, Motley Mulisha Reading Club, links, school visit pamphlet, & more!

She's also offering up a giveaway! Five lucky winners will each receive a signed bookmark and assorted swag! Contest runs from 09/15/16 to 09/23/16. Winners will be chosen my random.com.

  1. So awesome, Theresa! I love that you have Crystal and me together. I feel all cyber-cuddly. Thanks for your comment (on my site) about the swag. Took me forev'ah to design. Seriously. The middle bookmark was created by my publisher. They've been great! I really appreciate this support. And YAY for Crystal! She's up on my site, today. #booklove

    1. Happy to have you both, Sheri. I might have to pick your brain about bookmarks for when my book comes out in April. I've love to have the cover on one side and a poem from the collection on the other. I love all this book love.

    3. Back at you, Crystal! And OMGosh! I keep forgetting to tell you, my MC Ebony is a major cheese fanatic. She always has some cheesy snack in her satchel - favorite: Cheese Doodles. ;)

    1. And that cheese showers down on us--or rather, me. I think Sheri would prefer chocolate.

    1. Hilary, in the states it's all about making your book show how it aligns with the teaching standards.

    2. I know, right? Time travel is so cool, especially the way Crystal uses it. Thanks for noticing ME is aligned with the Core. I'll tell you that was a ton of work to put together. I bow to every teacher and librarian around the world. <3
