Celebrating others ~ a cover reveal and a new release!

b0c397c332a33c59f36446a5da8070bfThere are so many rewards to being part of the amazing online writing community.  I can’t say enough about the collegiality, respect, information sharing, friendship, learning and laughter that are a regular part of our daily interactions through social media.

The diversity of talent astounds me and through the benefit of many new friendships and connections, I’ve become far more open to reading almost every genre out there; often with surprisingly positive results.

Today I want to share some exciting news from two good friends, delightful women and  talented writers in very different genres.

FANTASY writer, ANGELA WALLACE, a 2013 Best Indie Award Winner, has a cover reveal for her new paranormal romance ~ DREAM SNATCHER!

Falling asleep has never been so dangerous… Dreamsnatcher Cover RevealLexa has spent the past five years training the princess of Teltania in dreamwalking, but with Taryn’s eighteenth birthday approaching, the girl has increasing royal duties and Lexa is getting ready to retire yet again. This time she’s looking forward to settling down and sailing with Sir Neil Duram—until his ship barely survives a raider attack. The raiders have been hounding Teltania’s coast and their victims are falling into comas. With Neil’s crew at risk, Lexa sets out to find a cure. But things aren’t what they seem. She discovers that the comatose have been snatched from their dreams and stolen into the dreamscape. The scattered cases soon become a potential plague, and Lexa has to find the connection between the waking world raiders and the dream snatchers. Is there a third dreamwalker out there, or something much more sinister? Lexa’s desperate search for answers will drive her to the edge in order to save everything she cares about.

  1. Great looking covers. I read a bit of everything but stick with sci-fi, history, and the occasional paranormal. I should try something new.

    1. You will be adding Contemporary Romance with snorts and steam to your repertoire when my book is published, filbio.

      I’ll personally bring it to NYC and chain you to a bar stool until you do. [One drink awarded per chapter read.]

      Threat or promise? You decide.

      Hey, Patricia! Could not stop myself from blog-jacking your comments. ‘Course I didn’t try very hard. Still…

  2. WOW, Patricia. You’re getting a short comment here, because I have to, Have To (!) link over to Goodreads to place these two books on my TBR list.

    And, that happy sunshine image at the beginning of this post? I see that as a self-portrait of your sunshine and glee personality. 🙂

It's always good to hear to from you!
