Here’s the cover!! Do you like it? I think it gives off the Gothic vibe, just short of having a ‘woman running from house’ image on the front.
A beautiful woman. A handsome man. A secluded manor, and a family with wealth and intrigue. But it only sounds like a fairy tale…
Celia wakes up to a room she doesn’t remember, in a house she cannot recall. Suffering from amnesia, she doesn’t even recognize her own face.
Her circumstances only get stranger from there.
She meets the LaCroix family, who took her into their home after an accident that left her unconscious and confused, but there is something unsettling about them. Irving, the head of the house, is more than hospitable. His wife, Anjessica, pale and pregnant, seems to grow sicker by the day. Baltus, an elderly gentleman, looks at Celia with an interest that disturbs her. The youngest member of the family, Maynard, stares at the floor and hardly says a word. Twin maids keep watch over the house with hard stares.
Then there is Adam.
Celia doesn’t remember him, but they share a common bond: they were in the same accident. Somehow, he doesn’t remember her either. They must rediscover each other to unlock the past, but the attraction between them is so strong that neither wants to complain. They are invited to stay as long as they’d like while they recover their memories, but it doesn’t take long for Celia and Adam to decide that they don’t want to stay in the sprawling mountainside chateau.
All around them, doors are locked. Someone is always watching. Celia and Adam must rely on one another as they plan for a means of escape – and try to uncover the secret of why the family will not let them go.

Back in July, I was lucky enough to have my book Nevermor requested for the Literary Vacation Club Book Subscription Box, and that was very exciting for me! The idea of having my books in a subscription box had crossed my mind before, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. Now I’m thinking that this might not be a bad thing for me. So this week, I’ve been researching other indie book boxes (and otherwise) in an effort to get more of my books out there. I have a couple of prospects, but nothing definite yet. Still, it feels good to get to work and be proactive — even if it stresses me out and makes me nervous, which it does. My anxiety is definitely kicking in, but I’m not going to let that stop me!
I love the idea of the indie book box as well. I think it’s a worthy effort, because everyone knows that indie books don’t get as much attention, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t gems out there *cough*. I want to read more great indie and small publisher released books as well, so if I find anything good, I’ll let you know!
In other news this week, I’ve been lucky enough to get in on a beta read for Omri Koresh’s project Nuerva, an art book with an accompanying story. It’s pretty amazing so far! Of course I’m a fan of his work (he created my Nevermor covers and hopefully others in the future 😉 So if you like fantasy art that’s beautiful, colorful, strange and often leans toward the erotic, be sure to check out his work and show some support! There’s no release info for his book yet. It’s still in very early stages, but if you’re interested, you can follow his blog for all upcoming info.
On that note, I really need to get back to reading more. I’ve been working a lot lately but I should read something to carry me through the end of the month. I’m so excited for November! Not just because of The Hallowed release, but because I’m looking forward to tuning out and writing again. NaNoWriMo! It’s been so long since I’ve gotten lost in a new project and it needs to happen.
So for the rest of this month: The Hallowed promotion, book planning and research, and an overhaul on housecleaning.
I’m also trying to decide where in my house I want to nest for the month of November as I write my new book. That’s also a project. The area needs to be clean and set up properly so that I can work with inspiration, but without distraction.
How about you? Read anything good lately?
