HUGE Online Book Launch Party!

FB 6-30 Party Graphic

Hey, readers!

Just wanted to let you all know about a really cool Facebook event I’m MCing next week: The Ultimate Cosby Media Productions Book Launch Party.

Basically, we’ve launched a lot of books (see above) from CMP in the past few weeks (mine included), and we want to have a virtual party to celebrate and host some giveaways. I’ll be hosting, along with fellow authors Keshawn Dodds and Braxton Cosby. We’ll also be sharing the spotlight with some of our other author friends, who will be running some fun activities and hosting giveaways of their books/swag.

If you’re a YA book lover, you definitely should join the party. The link is public, so you can RSVP and join by clicking HERE. I’d love to “see” you there, hanging out with all of us and talking about books. 

The event will run from 9am PST/12pm EST to 5pm PST/8pm EST on Tuesday, June 30th. Again, you can click HERE to check it out and join.

Hope to see you there!

Now Available: Protostar by Braxton Cosby

Hey, guys!

Remember when I did the cover reveal for Braxton Cosby’s Protostar? Well, the book is officially out today! Super exciting! I wanted to do a quick spotlight so ya’ll can pick up a copy for yourselves. 🙂

 

Here’s the synopsis:

 

WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE: LOVE OR DUTY? As the Torrian Alliance continues its age-old mission of hunting down Star-children, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son, William, to planet Earth on a mission to bring honor back to the Royal Family name. The target: Sydney, a young teenage girl, unaware of her alien heritage. When an unforeseen accident delays the assassination, William begins to realize a connection forming with Sydney and struggles to follow through with his orders. With the fear of Civil War imminent back home, William must make the ultimate choice between his irrevocable duty and love, sacrificing everything he believes. But as a hidden menace emerges to secure a vested interest, and impossible odds begin to mount against them, William and Sydney wonder if a connection between two Star-Crossed lovers is enough to save them from destruction.

You can pick up a copy of the eBook on Amazon and other online retailers (Smashwords, B&N, Kobo). Paperback for this title will be available on June 30th, and there will be a special Facebook launch party on that day. (I’ll let you guys know all about that soon.)

 

Also, did you know there is a prequel to this book? It’s titled Broken Prince, and was released on eBook last week. I have had the pleasure of editing all the books in the Star-Crossed Saga thus far, and really enjoyed Broken Prince. Grab a copy on Amazon.

Broken Prince

On June 30th, Braxton will be releasing the follow-up to Protostar: Supernova. I am really stoked for that. If you’re into YA/Sci-Fi, you HAVE TO read this series! Just trust me on this. 🙂 The paperback for Supernova will also be released on that same day.

To see all the other books written by Braxton, just check out his Amazon Author Page by clicking HERE. Also, feel free to send him a tweet and congratulate him on his book’s release.

Cover Reveal: Supernova by Braxton Cosby

Happy Monday, readers!

I have a special post today. Braxton Cosby is releasing a bunch of really cool books this year, and coming soon is the Star-Crossed Saga. I already did a cover reveal for the first book in the series: Protostar. Its follow-up, Supernova, is just as exciting and fabulous as Protostar. I also had the privilege of editing this incredible book, and I can’t wait until it’s available to the public. Lovers of YA and SciFi especially are in for a real treat with this series.

Braxton is also hosting a cover reveal for yours truly, over at his blog! If you want to see the cover for my next book in the Spirit Lake Series, The Wrong Fairy Tale, head on over to his website. 🙂


 

And now, here’s the insanely gorgeous and cool cover for Supernova:

Supernova Cover

Isn’t that such an awesome cover? I LOVE it! Check out the blurb below:


 

WHAT YOU CHOOSE, BECOMES YOU…

Against everything he had known as truth, William has made the choice to protect Sydney from the forces seeking to destroy her. But just as these two Star-Crossed lovers are beginning to explore their relationship and search for answers to the mysteries of Sydney’s existence, she advances to the next stage of her Star-child evolution—Supernova—and struggles not only to control her new powers, but also the emotions for her new love. William seeks to find the truth behind Sydney’s erratic behavior, while overcoming the new threat headed to Earth to destroy them. With new villains and old allies on the horizon, and chaos brewing on William’s home world, will self-sacrifice prove to be the only way for him to achieve victory and defend his love, or is there another way?

SUPERNOVA is the follow-up to the debut award-winning novel: PROTOSTAR!

Cover Reveal: Spirit Lake by Tamar Hela

DSCN1607 - Version 3

YOU. GUYS.

It’s here. It’s finally here.

The brand-spanking-new cover for the first book of my series in Spirit Lake, appropriately re-titled Spirit Lake (formally known as Feast Island.)

What’s so special about this book? Well…for starters, it is now traditionally published through Cosby Media Productions and Tate Publishing. It’s been completely revised for pacing and reader maturity level. The stakes have been raised, and my characters are itching to be let back out into the reading world.

I’m stoked. I’m humbled. I’m excited.

Spirit Lake will be released next month on eBook, and then the paperback will be released some time in June. The followup to Spirit Lake, The Wrong Fairy Tale, will be released on eBook in May and will also have a tentative release date in paperback some time in June. Hooray! I’ll be doing a cover reveal for TWFT next month. Stay tuned.

I’m doing some cartwheels right now.

So…without further ado, here is the NEW cover for Spirit Lake:

*Drum roll, please!*

Spirit_Lake_[2](1)

So…what do you guys think? I love it! And I can’t wait till it’s out for your reading pleasure!

Here’s the new/updated synopsis:

Six teenagers from Northern California are assigned a group project for their sophomore English class. Little do they know, this project will literally take them on a journey out of this world. Cantelia appears much like Earth, until the teens realize magic is as plentiful as the danger surrounding them. A dark and evil ruler has placed a curse on the tribal people of Sikuku Island—the same island where the teens have been transported. Now, they must help the tribal people break the curse if they ever want to see their own planet again. Alex and her companions quickly learn that there is so much more beyond their comfortable lives in Pollock Pines and its legendary Spirit Lake.

Braxton Cosby is also hosting a cover reveal for me today over at his blog. You can read the post by clicking HERE. And feel free to leave me a comment and tell me what you think of the cover—or if you have any questions for my about my book. 🙂

Cover Reveal: Protostar by Braxton Cosby

Last week, I had Braxton Cosby on my blog for an interview. This week, he and I are sharing hosting responsibilities, and I am revealing the cover of his re-release, Protostar, while he’ll be revealing MY new cover for Spirit Lake (formally known as Feast Island). Needless to say, it’s going to be an exciting week on the blog!

Now, for a bit about Protostar—which, by the way, I had the privilege of editing in January: Protostar is a special, deluxe edition of the multi-award-winning first book of the series the Star-Crossed Trilogy. This re-release, according to Braxton, has better story-telling elements, and its followup, Supernova, is the “highly anticipated successor” of the series. Protostar is slated for release in April, and Supernova will be released sometime in May.

And, you guys, both books are AWESOME. Young Adult Sci/Fi Fantasy, with lots of twists and turns and surprises. I also had the privilege of editing Supernova and am very excited for its release this spring.

Protostar Synopsis:

What Would You Choose: love or duty?

As the Torrian Alliance continues its age-old mission of hunting down Star-children, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son, William, to planet Earth on a mission to bring honor back to the Royal Family name. The target: Sydney, a young teenage girl, unaware of her alien heritage. When an unforeseen accident delays the assassination, William begins to realize a connection forming with Sydney and struggles to follow through with his orders. With the fear of Civil War imminent back home, William must make the ultimate choice between his irrevocable duty and love, sacrificing everything he believes. But as a hidden menace emerges to secure a vested interest, and impossible odds begin to mount against them, William and Sydney wonder if a connection between two Star-Crossed lovers is enough to save them from destruction.

And now…the big reveal… *drum roll, please*
