Cover Reveal - Quest of the Artisan by Donna Hosie!

I'm so pleased to participate in Donna Hosie's cover reveal for QUEST OF THE ARTISAN for The Children of Camelot Series!  It's an awesome cover!

Due for release 2015.


Six months ago, seventeen-year-old Rustin Hall thought he knew what he wanted. Then he travelled back in time with his best friend, Mila, to the world of Camelot, knights and magic, and everything changed.

Now Rustin is the artisan, and he knows his future because it's written in the past.

But Rustin's plan to build the first temple for the Gorian druids is cut down like the trees he talks to when the Round Table reveals the name of the newest knight of Camelot: a name that carves fear and unrest into the other knights. With Mila now in danger, Rustin, along with his friends, James and Jalaya, goes on a quest to find her before a new malevolent evil gets there first. A necromancer is building an army of the dead, and they are coming for Arthur's daughter.

Rustin will join forces with a young would-be knight called Galahad, as his quest takes him into the very heart of the Arthurian legends he grew up reading. A quest that could be the end of the artisan's life, not just in Logres, but for good.

Cover Reveal for SOULLESS by Crystal Collier

 Wahoo - I'm excited to participate in Crystal's cover reveal for SOULLESS - what a gorgeous, gorgeous cover!!

Have you met the Soulless and Passionate? In the world of 1770 where supernatural beings mix with humanity, Alexia is playing a deadly game.

SOULLESS, Book 2 in the Maiden of Time trilogy

Alexia manipulated time to save the man of her dreams, and
lost her best friend to red-eyed wraiths. Still grieving, she struggles to reconcile her loss with what was gained: her impending marriage. But when her wedding is destroyed by the Soulless—who then steal the only protection her
people have—she's forced to unleash her true power.

And risk losing everything.

What people are saying about this series: 

"With a completely unique plot that keeps you guessing and interested, it brings you close to the characters, sympathizing with them and understanding their trials and tribulations." --SC, Amazon reviewer

"It's clean, classy and supernaturally packed with suspense, longing, intrigue and magic." --Jill Jennings, TX

"SWOON." --Sherlyn, Mermaid with a Book Reviewer

IWSG: Cool Writerly Info and an Agent Query Critique eConference!

I'm late getting my post up today.  I wanted to share some cool hashtags where I'm finding good info on Twitter for writers.  You may or may not already know about these.  I'm about halfway through a totally new novel (not related to The Headhunters Race) that I plan to query so I've been keeping up on all things agent-related right now.  Hope you enjoy!

#askagent - watch this one for all kinds of writerly goodness.  They answer questions, share info, contest info and more.

In fact, I found another cool post from agent Pete Knapp for a Query Critique e-Conference via this hashtag.  :)  (If you haven't seen my last post where Pete Knapp talks about the rejected full, you may want to look at that too - he has really awesome info in his post on this topic - even if you're indie, it's good stuff.)

#MSWL - this one is a good one to watch because you can see what agents are "wishing" for.  That doesn't mean you can't query for something else if it fits in their guidelines.  :)

#tenqueries -agents take turns giving their insight on ten queries.

#querylunch - same concept as #tenqueries

#pubtips - industry related news, info, and tips

Does anyone know of any other Twitter hashtags for writers?
