Ember Cover Reveal...Whaaaaat

Yes! I love it. I love it so much I could marry it. I know Kaleidoscope isn't even out, but the cover was done and I'm too impatient to keep it to myself! And BONUS, now I have something for more inspiration while writing Ember. Sarah really does wonders. I'll never let anyone else touch my covers but her! If I have it my way Ember will be in your hands by June 2013. Let's hope things go my way this time!
In case you're curious about Kaleidoscope, if all goes as planned it will be available no later than the beginning of March. Cross your fingers with me people that it will be ready before that! I'm so ready for everyone to read it already and fall in love with the characters as much as I have! (Though I don't think that's really possible. I'm pretty in love.)
Now let me introduce you to Ember.

You can stare at it for a little bit. I have. It's so pretty.

ember, writing updates

It begins with a spark

After hours and hours of brainstorming and discussions over the last few months there is a title for Faylinn Book #2. There was a Hayes family discussion where the name was FINALLY born. Thank you mother-in-law. It fits the book perfectly.

You ready for it?


Mull it over. Test it on your lips. Embrace it. Love it.


Though Ember will not be out until next year it was necessary to come up with a name because we shot the cover last week! Yup. And it's going to be AWESOME. Seriously.

And I hear the questions flying. Are you finished with Ember? You already did the photo-shoot for Ember and the Kaleidoscope's not even out? Why are you holding out? Why? WHY? WHY! (Okay so I'm feeling a little overly dramatic today.)

Here are some simple answers. I'm hoping to be finished with Ember by the beginning of next year to make it available by Spring 2013. So I wanted to do the cover shoot now to make sure we got some good green before the winter took it away.

The shoot was a blast! The model-whowillnotbenamed-was such a champ. He was perfect, climbing in trees with his pointy ears all shirt-less and such...haha. I'll have the cover reveal sometime next month. The cover will be bombskies. I just know it.

So here's to Ember!
