Look at that work of art, that beautiful beautiful expression of talent. Have you ever seen anything so amazing in your life? Of course you haven’t! Impossible, that.
In case you couldn’t tell, my giddiness upon looking at this cover is unending. This here is the cover to my very first novel-length work, a story that is dear to me.
Stone Guardian is the first book in the Entwined Realms series. It is my modern-day sword & sorcery fantasy paranormal romance series (I dare you to say that three times fast – go on, I’ll wait.) What does that craziness mean exactly? It means awesomeness, that’s what! Of course, if you want a little more explanation that that, let this blurb help a tad:
Gryphons flying past Skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.
Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species. That is, until one day is walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies but then saved by a Gargoyle.
Leader of the Gargoyles, Tarek has been watching over the human woman for months. Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but something about this woman stirs every protective instinct within him, and when he realizes the danger to her is real, he refuses to allow her to explore this new world without him at her side.
In the course of their investigation Tarek becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this new Realm as well.
What does this mean exactly? It means I get to put all my geek loves into one series, that’s what it means! It means people will fall in love, there will be swordfights and magic fights, bad guys will be killed off… occasionally good guys will be killed off.
There will be kissing and snarkiness and magical creatures and the ever-popular Elven drag show – though who can tell the male elves from the females, right?
In short, we are going to have a good time, and I hope you’ll join me for the adventure.
Stone Guardian will be available in July! Don’t worry, I promise I won’t forget to tell you when the time comes 🙂
