OFFICIAL Release Date for Spirit Lake!

Hey, lovely readers!

Just a quick post today to share a very exciting announcement: Spirit Lake, my debut novel in the Young Adult Fantasy/Sci-Fi Spirit Lake Series, will officially be released on April 14th! I’m SUPER excited!

If you’re new around here, Spirit Lake was formerly titled Feast Island, and I published the novel in 2012 through a small, local publisher. It’s been a great journey, but now I’m moving up to the big leagues, and Cosby Media Productions bought my five-book series, meaning endless opportunities for this girl who started very humbly and has learned a lot about publishing in the past six years.

Spirit Lake is now available for PRE-ORDER via Amazon, so place your order TODAY and get the eBook automatically delivered to your Kindle or eReader device on the 14th. You can pre-order the eBook by clicking HERE.

Thanks so much for your support over the past several years. Exciting things ahead this year! Glad you’re part of the journey. X

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!*

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*

Protostar Cover

Ta-da! What do you think? I LOVE it! When we have an official release date, I’ll be sure to let you all know. 🙂

—> Also, don’t forget that today is the release of The Sect: The Windgate, which is Braxton’s first book. It was featured on this blog last week. Check out the post by clicking HERE if you missed it.

The Sect: The Windgate is the Award-Wining Book 1 of The School of Ministry Series, and is out now on eBook. The paperback is coming out April 21st.  Evan’s Heart, the novella and prequel to The Sect, is now available for free! Grab a copy NOW by clicking HERE!
