Cover Reveal for "Tethered by Fate", Book Two of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles!

As I work on readying my next book for public consumption on Dec 1st, I'm practically brimming with excitement! And to top it off, I just received the cover art for "Tethered by Fate"! Thank you, Brittany, for your wonderful illustrative talents and for making my vision come to life.

As you can see, there's a theme to the covers with the gold symbols. For those of you who aren't aware of what these symbols are, they're Celtic and I use them to represent the different types of Angels. The Triquetra on the first cover represents many things, but in my series it's used as the marking of Protection. The symbol on the second cover is that of a Duir and, as far as the Celtic meaning goes, means "strength, stability, and nobility" and is the marking of the Warrior Angels who are introduced in this second book.

Of course, the feather represents something, as well, (just as the moth did on the first cover) but I don't want to give that away!

Love this quote!

Watched "Midnight in Paris" last night and loved this quote from Ernest Hemingway's character. It completely captured the essence of him and his approach to writing:

"No subject is terrible if the story is true, if the prose is clean and honest, and if it affirms courage and grace under pressure."

Love it! LOVE it!

I could not agree more. :-)

Thought for the Day

I received one of my very first reviews today for my new book, and I have to say that it felt wonderful! The best compliment a writer can receive is not that your writing is without flaw, but that someone made a connection with the story. That makes every bit of what I do meaningful. I don't write so others can shower me with accolades, I write in hopes that I can make a connection to someone whom I've never met. That my characters are as real to them as they are to me, and can make them feel something inside.

What more could I ask for?

Book Summary Reveal for "Tethered by Fate"

I can't believe it's almost time to publish the second book of my Alyx Rayer series! I'm so excited to share this next part of the story with the world. The first book is near and dear to my heart, as it was when I first discovered who the main characters were and fell in love with them indefinately, but this second book was the most exciting to write. No question. Dynamic characters fill the pages, along with steam and grit.

And so, as I await my cover art from the wonderfully talented Brittany Bowman, I've hunkered down to come up with a Book Summary that captures the essence of this story. Its short, sweet, and hopefully intriguing. :-)

I hope I did it justice.
