I'm so happy with how it came out. Again thanks goes to S. Balac for his art. (Here is his DA) To my wife and CP for their input on changes and to my kids for their input of, "Cool" and "Awesome".
Here is the blurb:
A year ago, Sophia would have told you monsters existed only in the movies. That the world is easily understood and life has a way of making sense. A year ago, Sophia would have been wrong.
Her world had changed and she'd seen behind the curtain. With Aiden and the others by her side, all she wants now is answers. The monsters were gone, but in their absence new questions about her past were left to haunt.
As the search for answers begins, a remnant from her nightmares returns. Her new understanding of the world is once more shaken and she finds herself on the opposite side of powerful Elementals.
When those sworn to protect humanity are your enemies, the lines of right and wrong become blurred. One wrong choice and she could be left with ashes.
Okay, on to other exciting news. My giveaway. I had intended to do it with the cover reveal, but things out of my control made that an impossibility. So I have decided to do it on release day, August 20th. Still I am excited to give the details of what I am giving away.
I am lucky enough to have access to someone who makes handmade jewelry. She has been awesome and kind enough to help me out. So awesome in fact instead of making one piece of jewelry she is making five.
First winner will receive a representation of Molly's Necklace and earrings from Elemental. Then there will be four more winners that will receive one of four necklaces representing one of the four elements.
Here is a link to her store, go check out the awesome things she makes. Layla's Trinkets. Another awesomely awesome thing she did was (I may be biased) if anyone is interested in buying something from now until August 31 you can enter the code, Lightbringer2Ashes (not caps sensitive), for 40% off any purchases.
I will be using Rafflecopter to determine winners. Ways to enter are liking my author FB, sending out a tweet using @Brandonax and linking to the giveaway and then extra entries will be given for anyone who leaves a review of either Ashes or Elemental on Amazon.
Which brings me to my next bit of info. To help promote Ashes, Elemental will be up for free on Amazon for two days, August 14 and 15.
The giveaway will run from August 20th through September 10th before the winners are selected. Anyone willing to help me out by doing a post on the cover reveal or the giveaway please let me know in the comments or send me and email at (Baxwriting@gmail.com). Thank you in advance.
Anyway I can't wait to have the book out for everyone to see. For now I am happy to just sit and stare at my cover. As always have fun and keep writing.
That's very cool!ReplyDelete

I am so glad that Alex linked to your site today. You left a comment on my blog two months ago (or so) and I haven't been able to get here just by clicking on your name/link. All it did was take me to your Google Circles, which I failed at navigating.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your new book coming out! The cover is amazing. I would sit and stare at it, too:)
Oh man I hate when I click someone's name and it goes there..wonder how I can change that.Delete
Glad you came by I always enjoy your post.
