Cover Reveal

Cover Reveal: HYBRID by KT Hanna!

I’m SO SO excited to share the cover reveal for a good friend. KT Hanna! HYBRID is coming soon!!

Hybrid is finally almost ready for release. S.P. McConnell worked magic again here.

Hybrid (The Domino Project #2) is the sequel to Chameleon. It’s set in the wasteland of earth after a meteor shower causes ecological disaster, damages the atmosphere, and gives the gift of an alien parasite to the world. Book two furthers Sai, Bastian, and Dom’s journey in their fight to live free from GNW imposed rules.

The goodreads blurb is as follows:

As Sai recovers from her life-threatening injuries, she struggles to piece together her damaged relationship with Dom. He fights the parasite within, suddenly freed from the interference of the other Dominos in his head.

Inside Central, Bastian’s Shine dosing has become a dangerous dance. Enhanced security protocols and endless meetings have him on a tightrope, with little room to move without revealing himself.

When the GNW release the Damascus to begin their systemic hunt of the Exiled, the noose closes around the rebels and their allies. If they can’t disable the threat, the Exiled won’t be the Damascus’ only agenda

Without further ado – here’s a teaser of the cover by the amazingly talented S.P. McConnell.

Cover Reveal: TOUCHING FATE by Brenda Drake!

Hi Everyone!!

I’m thrilled to be able to share the cover of my amazing BFF Brenda Drake’s TOUCHING FATE coming from Entangled Teen Crave! I’m so excited for her because she has two books coming out in less than 6 months and no one deserves it more than she does. So… let’s get to it, shall we?

 

… HERE WE GO!!!

Don’t you LOVE it!! YAY!
Touching
Fate

by Brenda Drake 

Release
Date: 10/13/15

Entangled
Teen: Crave

Summary
from Goodreads:

Aster
Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City
Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn’t. Aster
discovers she has a veryunscientific gift—with a simple touch of the
cards, she can change a person’s fate.

Reese
Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs
in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth
birthday—and Reese’s is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself
from his inevitable death…only to find the one person who can save him.

Aster
doesn’t know that the hot Dutch guy she’s just met needs her help–or that he’s
about to die.

But
worst of all…she doesn’t know that her new gift comes with dark, dark
consequences that can harm everyone she loves.

About the Author Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at schooluntil her family settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Brenda’s fondest memories growing up is of hereccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was onlyfitting that she would choose to write young adult and middle grade novels with a bend toward thefantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

Cover Reveal: FROSH by Mónica B. Wagner!

Hi Everyone!!

I’m SO excited today cause I get to help reveal the cover for FROSH by my amazing author and friend, Mónica B. Wagner! I’ve known Mónica for several years and I can honestly say she’s one of my favorite people. She even picked me for her Writer’s Voice team in 2012! I could talk about how awesome she is forever but let’s get to the cover reveal, shall we?

HERE WE GO!!!

…..

 

 

 

……

 

Almost here!!!!!!

 

FROSHfinal

 

AHH!!! Love it! HULLO Hotness.

Here’s a little about FROSH!

During welcome week at Hillson University, the FROSH will hit the fan.

Type-A aspiring journalist Ellie plans to take freshman year by storm. But hell-bent on breaking a huge on-campus scandal, she risks becoming one herself—and getting the mysterious, heart-melting QB in serious trouble. 

Grant, star quarterback and charismatic chick-magnet, is hiding a life-altering secret. The last thing he needs is an overeager (absolutely adorable) journalist asking questions. He’s got a reputation to protect.

High-society legacy student Devon is ready to catch the football hottie of her dreams. If the tabloids feature her with the “it” boy on her arm, her tainted past will be buried—or so she thinks.

Charlie, pre-med, is done being the sweet and funny geek that girls like Devon ignore. But if he tries to impress her with a new edgy, spontaneous attitude, will his heart end up in the emergency room?

FROSH intertwines the stories of Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie in Mónica B. Wagner’s sexy NA debut series, about falling in love and falling apart.

I’d like to read about these characters for sure!!

Library Jumpers Cover

(Isn’t it GORGEOUS?)

Library Jumpers

by Brenda Drake

Release Date: 01/05/16

Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:

Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound. 

Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.

Cover Reveal!! Linda Budzinski’s, THE FUNERAL SINGER

Hi Everyone!!

 

I’m SO excited today to show you something AWESOME. But first let’s go back to 2012 for a little story about a mentor and mentee.

Not long ago… in an internet contest far away, I met an amazing writer with a story to tell. It all started when my bestie, Brenda Drake called me last summer and had this idea about a contest where we would mentor one writer through an entire manuscript.

This is how the call went down. Yes, I’m paraphrasing ’cause I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday.

Me: “That’s such a cool idea! Wait. Whoa, are you sure you want to take that on? That’s a lot of responsibility. *bites nails*” 

Brenda: “Yes, it’s going to be amazing! And we can have the winners all on one blog and I’m sure I can get other mentors, and we’ll have a month to do it and…” Brenda said.

Me: *laughs* Okay, okay, let’s do it. GAME ON,” I said somewhat enthusiastically.

THUS #PitchWars was born.

I had no idea who I would ultimately end up with, or if I would get the writer I wanted (there was a lot of competition!) but once I read Linda’s THE FUNERAL SINGER I wanted it and her! I had to do some last minute groveling to a fellow mentor (she’s awesome and I’m lucky to call her my CP) to keep it, but luckily she thought Linda and I would make a good pair and graciously stepped aside.

I LOVE this story and I’m SO excited that Linda has found a home for THE FUNERAL SINGER with Swoon Romance.

Here’s a little about the story…

Being a funeral singer was a dead-end job until it led her to him …

Seventeen-year-old Melanie Martin has witnessed her share of lame eulogies and uninspired epitaphs while singing part-time at her dad’s funeral home. She’s determined to be more than a funeral singer, more than just someone’s “beloved wife” or “loving mother.” 

When Mel’s impromptu rendition of “Amazing Grace” at a local rock star’s graveside service goes viral on YouTube, she becomes an Internet sensation, gains thousands of fans and followers, and snags a hot rock star boyfriend–Zed Logan, bass player for The Grime. 

But instant fame isn’t easy—and neither is love. Especially when Mel realizes she’s falling for another guy—one who may just want her heart more than her voice …

AMAZING, RIGHT?

Ready to see the cover?

Yeah, you are ….

 

….

 

….

 

I bet about now you’re like, Erica, just show the cover already, and I’m like, Bah hahaha. NOPE ….

 

….

 

GET ON WITH IT, CHAPMAN ….

 

All right. All right, jeez.

 

….

 

….

 

READY?

 

Here we go!!

 

 

 

 

WHOOO!! Love it! I couldn’t be more proud or happier for Linda!

You can find her online at lindabudzinski.com or on twitter @LindaBudz

THE FUNERAL SINGER will be out September 24, 2013 with Swoon Romance!!

YAY!!!

 

Have a great weekend rockers!!

~Er
