Cover Reveal: Hunted Heart by Alison DeLuca


My friend Alison DeLuca has a new book coming out and I'm THRILLED to be a part of the cover reveal! Today, I'm turning my blog over to her ... Thanks for joining me today Alison ... Here she is to tell us about Hunted Heart

I met a friend online who gave me a prompt for Hunted Heart. Her idea was to have a strong heroine as the Hunter from Snow White who is given the job of killing the prince. Heartbreak, magic mirrors, and poisoned apples all wound themselves into the plot, and fifty thousand words later I had an adult take on the fairytale.

My publishing group, Myrddin Publishing, does a charity publication each year in December. This year my Myrddin effort is Hunted Heart and all royalties will be donated. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon, and you can add it to your  reading lists on Goodreads.

When Tali is hired to cut out the heart of Prince Kas, the huntress can’t refuse. Tali
realizes there is no escape from the dark magic of the queen’s mirror, even though her own feelings for the prince are far too complex to understand.

As they try to run from their shared destiny, Tali and Kas have to rely on their wits and each other as hunter becomes prey and hearts are won and lost.

A genderbent Snow White for adults (18+ only.) All royalties go to Save the Children.

My illustrator did a lovely job with the book. Here is Lisa Daly’s cover for Hunted Heart:



About the author: Alison DeLuca is the author of several fantasy and steampunk novels.
Currently she lives in New Jersey with her husband and daughter, where she wrestles words and laundry.

You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and
Goodreads.


Thank you, Alison!!

Cover Reveal: Merry Wishes: A Romance Novella

It's been a while since I've done a cover reveal, and this time it's my own!

Before I show it off, I want to tell you a little about this story and how it came to be. You see, this story was completely unplanned and was never supposed to exist. Originally, the Whispered Wishes series was to be four novels: AVA'S WISHES, HOLLY'S WISHES, TESSA'S WISHES, AND WOVEN WISHES. After I released AVA'S WISHES, several people contacted me and said they loved Ava's friend, Carly and hoped she'd reappear down the line. Unfortunately, as fun as she was to write, she was actually written into the series as an afterthought ..completely off the outline and sadly, she didn't have a significant role in the rest of the series (sorry Car!) But, because I love my readers, I decided to create a companion novella to the series all for Carly Cator and just in time for the holidays. And even though this story was completely unplanned, I'm so glad my readers suggested bringing Carly back, because I had a blast writing her tale!


ABOUT MERRY WISHES:

An ugly divorce behind her, Carly Cater is looking forward to a truly Merry Christmas. With interest for her art from a high-powered fashion designer and a new romance with her handsome contractor, Jason Hardy, her life is finally heading in the right direction. That is, until her ex-husband suddenly returns to interfere, and mysterious texts draw Jason away. Is this another holiday disaster in the making, or will an offer to create a mural for the brain-injury patients at Greenbriar Manor bring her the Christmas joy she’d been seeking?

And now the cover by the fabulous Najla Qamber ...
