The Next 1000 Miles

Cover Revealings?

The time is coming when my final book is almost ready to depart on the last leg of its journey to the editors. March 24th is the special day. You know what that means? COVER REVEAL….

Except, not yet…

I’d like some help from anyone willing to coordinate a reveal with me through their blog, site, social media, what-have-you. Any takers: JL.Fiction@outlook.com I’d like to do it on March 27th, two weeks from today. If you don’t volunteer, I’ll have to track you down individually.

In other news, I met up with my alpha reader (my dad) last week and talked out some of the things needing work on this last installment. Some very helpful ideas springing me from a stale point and into an ending I’m pretty happy with.

This is a helpful side-kick into a comfortable tower of praise.

Ultimately, I am very happy to be done with a series. I never knew how difficult ending one could be and this is a moment where I realized writing by the seat of my pants would be a lot easier if I’d just planned and plotted out some major points along the way. Live and learn, right?

Anywho, I hope everyone is having a great Monday, don’t let it do this to you:

Fight back and let’s find our way to Friday!

Synopsis:

Two eternities. One ending.

“Harmony would only come with destruction.”

The moment Eric and Jessica are reunited, they are torn apart. After the appearance of a new breed of shades and lights, the powers shift for the worse, and all three descendants find themselves face-to-face in the Light realm. When Darthon is in control, the last thing everyone expects is to finally hear the truth.

While Jessica learns the reason of her creation, Darthon’s identity is exposed to Eric—and only Eric—and Eric can no longer defend himself. With the eternities of the Light and the Dark resting on Jessica’s shoulders, she must choose who she will be—a light or a shade.

In the end, someone must die, and the end is near.

Dark Activities:

Become a Member of the Dark (or Light) by emailing ShannonAThompson@aol.com. Your email will never be given out, and you are not required to do anything, but you will win more prizes the more you participate.

Message from the Author:

The Timely Death Trilogy began as one teenager’s nightmare and morphed into a real-life dream of authorship. The entire trilogy re-releases with new covers and new interiors this summer and fall by Clean Teen Publishing. I hope you’ll check out this dark vs. light trilogy (mainly because the “dark” side is the good side…maybe), and I especially hope you’ll consider becoming a Member of the Dark! Each time there is a special event, you can participate and win prizes—like spotlights on my website, books, and more. Simply email me at shannonathompson@aol.com, and I’ll send a badge over to you. We might even have coffee together.

Thank you for reading about this dark journey,

~SAT


 

Two nightmares. One memory.

“Chaos within destiny. It was the definition of our love.”

Eric has weeks before his final battle when he’s in an accident. Forced to face his human side, he knows he can’t survive if he fights alone. But he doesn’t want to surrender, even if he becomes the sacrifice for war.

Jessica’s memory isn’t the only thing she’s lost. Her desire to find her parents is gone and so is her confidence. But when fate leaves nightmares behind, she decides to find the boy she sees in them, even if it risks her sanity.

Go check out the YouTube video to go along with it. CLICKETY-LINKS

Shannon A. Thompson – Cover Reveal – Minutes Before Sunset

A fellow author and friend, Shannon A. Thompson invited me to partake in her unveiling of the new cover for her kick-off / re-release of the first novel in her Timely Death Trilogy. Changing to a new publishing house, Clean Teen Publishing, has helped her with a new cover and the first book in the series will be available once again July 28th.

Below, you will get an exclusive sneak peak into the new cover, a brief synopsis of the book and a little background into Shannon herself. I hope you head on over to her sight and give her a look and become a fan just like I have.

Cover

Two destines. One death.

“Her kiss could kill us, and my consent signed our death certificates.”

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.
