Shout It Out Day

You know what I love most about being a part of this awesome blogging community? How we get to get the word out for some very incredible writers. So to help brighten your dreary Monday, I'd like to give a loud shout out to Alex J. Cavanaugh, Laura Eno, and Ciara Knight!

Cover Reveal!!!!

CassaStorm, by Alex J. Cavanaugh


A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, shaking Bassan to the core and threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

Cover Reveal #2!!!!

Jewel of Shaylar, by Laura Eno

Archaeologist David Alexander investigates the cave where his father disappeared and hurtles into another world, one filled with magic and bizarre creatures. The mad ravings in his father's journals of icemen and dragons may not be fantasies after all.

Convinced his father may still be alive, David begins a treacherous journey to find him and discover a way home. Along the way, he encounters a few unlikely friends. A Dreean warrior, a beautiful thief and a satyr join him as he searches.

David's arrival into this new world sets off an explosive chain reaction of events. Faced with powerful adversaries and few clues, he may not get the chance to rescue his father before disaster strikes, condemning both of them to death. Or worse.

I'm a big Laura Eno fan. I find all of her writing so easy to read, filled with everything you could want: action, romance, and imagination. I have no idea what the hell a Dreean warrior is, but I can't wait to find out.

Neumarian Uprising CONTEST!!!!

Weighted and Escapement by Ciara Knight

We need your help! Thanks to our spy, Ciara Knight, we are able to communicate with you today via blogs, Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
The Neumarian uprising has begun. We are fighting for freedom and equality for all, but we need your help. Ciara informed us that you might want to know more about the uprising and why we ask you to risk your lives for our cause. To answer these questions I’ve agreed to let Ciara tell my sister’s, Raeth’s, story about her captivity. It will be free for you on a site called Amazon until March 1, 2013.
Weighted (prequel to the Neumarian Chronicles)
The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.
You can help by simply downloading a free copy of Weighted
If you are intrigued and wish to follow our uprising, Escapement, book I of The Neumarian Chronicles, will be available for only $2.99 until March 1, 2013.
Escapement is told by Princess Semara...
Ten years after the great war of 2185 the queen’s reign is threatened by uprisings and fear. In celebration of my sixteenth birthday it is my duty as princess to sacrifice a slave to be initiated into the ruling council, solidifying my mother’s empire. When my own erratic powers surface I’m captured and tried for treason. Slaves hate me, my mother wants me executed, and my only chance of survival rests in the hands of a young man, Ryder Arteres, whose sister I sentenced to death.


Be Bold.
Be Brave.
Be Free.
In the name of the rebellion,
Ryder Arteres

Laura's cover rocks. Her covers are always top-notch.
Ready for the uprising! Excellent book.
And thanks for posting my cover. "The way the Gods intended" - that made my morning!

Brinda said...

Yay for all the new releases! That's one hefty first draft. I wish I could write 'long' like that.

Jay Noel said...

Alex: You're very welcome.

Brinda: I think my books are long because every chapter is a short story. Plus, a lot of stuff happens!

Laura Eno said...
