Double Cover Reveal for “Crown of Ice” and “Scepter of Fire”

Another Wednesday, another cover reveal!

Today I’m participating in a special double cover reveal for the first two books in the Mirror of Immortality Trilogy by Vicki L. Weavil. The all-new second edition of the first book, Crown of Ice, releases on May 9 from Snowy Wings Publishing, with the second book, Scepter of Fire, coming on May 23!

Title: Crown of Ice
Author: Vicki L. Weavil
Release Date: May 9, 2017
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Cover Designer: Deranged Doctor Design

Snow Queen Thyra Winther is immortal, but if she can’t reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she’s doomed to spend eternity as a wraith.

Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. Unencumbered by kindness, she kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time rapidly melting away she needs all the help she can steal.

A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai’s childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles.

Thyra’s willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts — to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within her. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup’s devotion and the fire of a young man’s love, the thawing of Thyra’s frozen heart could prove her ultimate undoing.

Release Date: May 23, 2017
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Cover Designer: Deranged Doctor Design

She’s the ugly duckling in a family of swans. But Varna Lund is determined to live a life that matters.

Ridiculed by the young men of her village, Varna vows she’ll become the finest healer in the land. The skills she’s learned from her ancient mentor prove vital when she encounters Erik Stahl, a young soldier who deserted the battlefield to carry an injured friend to safety. Aided by her sister Gerda, she cares for the soldiers in secret.

When betrayal catapults the four young people into life on the run, Varna encounters her former mentor—now revealed as the sorcerer, Sten Rask. Seeking an enchanted mirror that offers unlimited power, Rask appears determined to seduce Varna to his side.

To protect their country, Varna and her companions form an alliance with a former Snow Queen, a scholar, and an enchantress. But when Rask tempts her with beauty and power, Varna’s heart becomes a battlefield. Caught between loyalty to her companions and a man whose kisses ignite a fire on her lips, Varna must choose—embrace her own desires, or fight for a society that’s always spurned her.

Cover Reveal for “A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro”

Hello, everyone! Today we have yet another cover reveal, but this time it’s for my own book! I know you all have already seen the e-book cover for A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, but here is the cover of the paperback bind-up of the first two “Dudebro” stories: The Taming of the Dudebro and A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro.

Title: The Taming of the Dudebro, volume 1

Author: Jane Watson

Release Date: April 18th, 2017

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Cover Designed by: Key of Heart Designs

“In The Taming of the Dudebro, Patricia’s dream is coming true: she is directing her own play, a one-act written by her best friend, Grizz, for the school’s annual Drama Festival. Everything seems to be perfect until her teacher assigns Kurt Minola, the biggest jerk in the school, to work on her play. Kurt is lazy, selfish and irresponsible. The only good thing about him is his attractive twin brother, Ben—but even he can’t seem to change Kurt’s attitude. Kurt’s presence turns Patricia’s dream into a nightmare… until Patricia and Grizz decide to take matters into their own hands, and subject this insufferable surfer-dude to some taming.

Then, in A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, with the theater festival behind her and graduation around the corner, Grizz Sheridan figured she was done with Kurt Minola. She wants to focus on spending time with her friends and enjoying her last summer before she goes off to college. No such luck now that Kurt’s crushing on her best friend (and his twin brother’s girlfriend), Patricia. It seems like he’s glued to her side no matter where she goes—class, parties, even Prom.

Grizz thinks her luck is changing when she begins working at Merry Mule Coffee Roasters and meets super hottie, Dimitri. That is, until a certain surfer boy starts working there, too—and suddenly seems to have turned his romantic interests elsewhere…”


Isn’t it gorgeous? I am in love with the surfing theme, and Kona is on the cover! Who is Kona? Find out in A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, coming out on April 18th from Snowy Wings Publishing!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today on the blog I am revealing the cover of my friend Dorothy Dreyer’s upcoming new adult paranormal novella, “Entangled Souls.” The novella is part of Ednah Walters’ Runes Universe Kindle Worlds launch, releasing April 18th.

“Her whole life, Lexi has known that the voices she hears in her head—omens and harbingers of important things to come—are part of being a witch. But what she doesn’t know is that a soul has escaped its reaping while on her family’s property. When handsome stranger Caden shows up on his motorcycle to tour the vineyard she grew up on, she isn’t aware that he is a Valkyrie searching for the lost soul. All she knows is that the deep attraction she feels for him is undeniable.

When Caden finds out Lexi is a witch and asks her to help him track down the soul, Lexi must come to terms with the fact that Caden is immortal and decide if her feelings for a soul reaper are worth the risks.”

Golden Cover Reveal!

Today on the blog, we have the cover reveal for K.M. Robinson’s “Golden,” a YA Dystopian retelling of “Goldilocks”!
About The Book
“When the girl with the golden hair betrays everyone, not even she has hope of surviving.

The stories say that Goldilocks was a naïve girl who wandered into a house one day. Those stories were wrong. She was never naïve. It was all a perfectly executed plan to get her into the Baers’ group to destroy them. 

Trained by her cousin, Lowell, and handler, Shadoe, Auluria’s mission is to destroy the Baers by getting close to the youngest brother, Dov, his brother and sister-in-law and the leaders of the Baers’ group. When she realizes Dov isn’t as evil as her cousin led her to believe, she must figure out how to play both sides or her deception will cause everyone in her world to burn.

If her allegiances are discovered, either side could destroy her…if the Society doesn’t get her first.

Description

All It Takes is one night to change the rest of their lives.

Graduating Uni, traveling Europe and buying her own place – these are on Megan Green’s to-do list.

At just twenty-two, becoming a mother isn’t.

Fast cars, expensive clothes and bedding a different women every night – this is how Kian Murphy spends his time when not in the MMA ring. Pre-natal scans and birthing classes are not on his agenda.

After a chance meeting and passionate encounter, Megan finds herself pregnant with Kian’s child. But with a womanizing reputation, and a temper that often leads him into trouble, Kian is hardly boyfriend material, let alone father material.

Now Megan and Kian must work out if they have All It Takes to turn their one-night-stand into a relationship that will connect them for a life-time.

All It Takes is a dual-POV new-adult, contemporary-romance about responsibility, love and discovering who you are in life.

Peanut Blossom Cookie Recipe

Hey, everyone!

Today I will be sharing with you one of my absolutely favorite holiday cookies. I have to make these every year, usually more than once. They are “Peanut Blossoms,” but I’ve also heard them called “Peanut Butter Stars,” because there are some places where you can buy chocolate candies in the shape of stars. Alas, alack, I have never found these treasured chocolates, but Hershey’s Kisses work just as well.

Don't they look delicious? Let's get started!

Don’t they look delicious? Let’s get started!

You will need:

  • ½ Cup butter, softened
  • ½ Cup peanut butter
  • ½ Cup brown sugar
  • ½ Cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ Cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 bag of chocolate stars or Hershey’s kisses

Preheat the oven  350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream together the butter and brown and white sugar. Add in the egg, vanilla, salt, and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the peanut butter, and then finally the flour.

Roll the dough into small balls, and then roll them in sugar. Place them on a cookie sheet and press your thumb  slightly into each ball to give it an indent. Put the dough into the oven for about six minutes (this will depend on how quickly your oven bakes things). Then place a chocolate kiss in the indentation of each cookie and bake for two minutes more. Adjust as necessary until golden brown.

Enjoy!

Update on A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro

Well, everyone, you know how I kept talking about “A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro” and how it was going to be a novella and out over the summer? As you can tell, it’s not out yet, and that’s because it morphed into a full-length novel! The antics of Kurt, Grizz, Patricia, and the rest of the gang could not be contained to a mere 30,000 words. The Dudebro series is no longer a “novella” series, but will have full length novels interspersed with shorts throughout. This is very exciting for me, as I love these characters and where their stories are going.

I decided to wait to release it until a warmer month so as to get people in the summer mood. It will be coming out in April 2017. I have another exciting announcement to make: “A Midsummer Night’s Duebro” and the rest of the “Dudebro” series are going to be released with Snowy Wings Publishing!  I am so excited to be working with them.

That’s all for now!

~Jane
