Cover Reveal and a new addition to my family!
I want to thank you all for your comments and opinions on the mock covers I showed you a few weeks ago. I tallied all your votes, both here and on Facebook, took your comments into consideration and ended up with Mock 2 as the best choice. My cover designer went right to work, perfecting it and here is the final version. In case you forgot the storyline, I'm posting it below the picture. (if you missed the mock covers, you can see them here )
Alexia D'Clere didn't ask to be Protector of the Spear, but after her dying mother gave her the tiny metal object and made her promise to keep it safe, she had no choice. Orphaned at age 9, she began to take over the running of her parent's castle with the help of a trusted steward. Yet, when a plot to murder her was revealed, a friar whisked her away to live hidden in the forest. There, she learned to shoot expertly with bow and arrow and hone her skills to see into the spirit realm.
Now, at 18, she continues to keep the spear protected, provide meat for the starving village, while secretly caring for her ill sister who still lives in the castle. With Alexia's powers of spiritual discernment and her skill as an archer, she is no match for those who come for the spear. That is until she meets Ronar LePeine, one of the King's elite guard.
Ronar desires nothing more than to do his duty to God and King and pay penance for his past sins. Yet a forest sprite with red, flaming hair blocks his every move, all the while enchanting him like no other. Something evil lurks at Castle Luxley, and both Ronar and Alexia are soon thrust into the middle of a spiritual battle which will not only test their very beliefs, but put them both in mortal danger.
This book releases in early September. Just a little over TWO MONTHS! (Which means I better get to finishing it) If you haven't already signed up for my newsletter and/or signed up to follow this blog, you might want to do that now (Forms on the right ) That way you will be notified when the book goes up for preorder at a discounted price!
Now, for more important news!
Wednesday Evening, June 22nd, my third grandchild made her entrance into the world. Please welcome Ava Loren Chavez! I'd love to post a picture, but my daughter won't allow it. Rest assured that all 9 lbs 6 ounces of her is healthy and strong and beautiful!
God has truly blessed me.
Have a wonderful weekend!
