Cover Reveal: Veiled Shadows (Shadows #3)

I can’t keep this one under my hat any longer. Yep- this is the cover for the final book in the Shadows series: Veiled Shadows (Shadows #3). It was designed by the very talented Dafeenah over at Indie Designz.

I suppose you are looking for a little tidbit or two on what’s to come in this installment? I’m happy to oblige.

**SPOILERS AHOY**

Well, Ellie’s finally going to find out everything she wanted to know about her parents and their tie to the Afterlife. The thing about knowing the full story? Sometimes you realize that you didn’t really want to know.

David’s on his own journey of self-discovery, but he hasn’t given up on a future with Ellie. He’s going to have help from some unexpected places, and that’s a good thing- he needs all the help he can get.

And we haven’t see the last of Mikel or Lillian. Oh, and if you thought they were bad, then trust me, you haven’t seen anything yet. 😉

Hopefully those little morsels give you something to look forward to. My opinion? I think this will be the best book of the trilogy.

What do you think of the new cover?

Happy Birthday to Me…With a Gift For You!

It’s that time of year again! Hard to believe that I hit the “Publish” button on Edge of Shadows just over a year ago on November 12th, 2011, and celebrated my birthday with the paperback version in hand (yes, for you sharp observers out there, that was the old cover). That was a pretty awesome day. 🙂

This writing journey over the last 12 months has been fantastic. I’ve learned a lot and I know my writing is getting better all the time because of the great feedback that I hear from my readers. That’s why, even though today is my birthday, I want to do something for you.

FREE COPY OF EDGE OF SHADOWS

In my mind, Edge of Shadows will forever be linked with my birthday. So from now through 11:59pm CST on Sunday, November 18th, either comment on this blog post or shoot me an email at cege@cegesmith.com, and I’ll give you a coupon code to download a copy of EOS for free from Smashwords.com (and if you write a review afterwards, good or bad, I’ll love you forever.)

JOIN THE CEGE SMITH FAN CLUB AND BE ENTERED TO WIN…

Everyone knows I am an HUGE, obsessed fan of The Vampire Diaries. It’s an addiction, I know, but I can’t stop. (Team Delena all the way!! Lol).

So here’s the deal. There’s a little box right off the right of this post about mid-way down the sidebar. It’s a sign-up box for joining my fan club. Enter your email address and join before 11:59pm CST on Sunday, November 18th, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win Elena’s vervain pendent ($50 USD value) shown below. (Fans of the show know it well.)

I don’t spam or anything like that- it’s just a way for you to hear about upcoming releases first, and I will occasionally share other awesome news from the Cege Smith universe.

So that’s it!  You pick your gift for my birthday- and you can absolutely do both. Thank you for being there and helping me celebrate! It’s because of you that these stories come to life.

Cover Reveal: Immortal End (the Ageless sequel)

I am swooning yet again over my newest cover from LFD Designs. I will be completely honest here: I wasn’t sure if I was going to write a sequel to Ageless. I left the story where the arc of the book was clearly over, but there was a nice thread left open that could be continued if I wanted to do it.

Until this past week, I was leaning toward leaving it alone. Then I found this cover, and suddenly I saw Violet there clear as day. And so Immortal End will become a reality sooner rather than later. (Hooray! More Jeremiah and Jonah *wink*.)

I am feverishly working on Veiled Shadows right now, but Immortal End will be coming in Q1 2013 (if not sooner).  When really all depends on 3 things:

  • How long Veiled Shadows takes me to get done
  • How long the 3rd Bloodtruth book takes to get done (Angeline fans everywhere- rejoice!)
  • If I have a push from Twisted Souls fans to get the 3rd book in that series first

If you have an opinion, I’d love to hear from you in the comments or by dropping me a line (cege@cegesmith.com).  Series fans really do have a voice in my production schedule because at the end of the day, I’m writing for you.
