INDIES HELPING INDIES-2, yes 2 Cover Reveals!

When I went to UTOPYA this summer, I met a ton of wonderful Indie Authors who helped make a bit more sense out of the insanity that is the Indie publishing world. Well, as chance would have it, two of the authors I met there have asked me to share their cover releases! And they both are doing it on Halloween!  How cool is that?

First up is Adam Kunz  He was one of the very few male authors at the event. He is a hoot and has written several books on his own as well as co-writing with his mother–yes his mother- Carol on several other novels. Together they gave a talk on how they worked together on how to co-author a book, which Amy Miles and I took so we could put their tips into practice with our own co-authored trilogy!

The book Adam is releasing information about is a book called:

Two Little Lies

Book Synopsis

Lies can be very dangerous and deadly little things.

Almost four years after Laney Matthews survived a brush with death by the hands of the serial killer, Robbie The Prowler Jameson, she’s finally picked up the pieces of her life and started over. She’s made new friends, began dating again, attended countless therapy sessions, and is about to graduate in the spring from BlackburnUniversity. Ever since that fateful night, Laney has tried to surround herself with positivity, and so far she’s succeeded…but that’s all about to come crashing down around her.

When news of Robbie’s release from prison, due to a technicality, is plastered all over the news, Laney’s bubble of security bursts and she begins to withdraw from everyday life. Her friends come up with an idea to pull her from this slump and plan a fun winter break getaway in order to clear her head. It’s here that she comes face to face again with Brent Lyles, the one that got away, and she begins to realize that maybe he’s the exact thing she’s been missing in her crazy life.

Something’s amiss at the sprawling rental property though, and when things quickly take a deadly turn, Laney and her friends are forced to fight for their lives. Has The Prowler returned to finish what he started years ago? And is Laney prepared to stand up to her past demons once and for all?

Expected Release Date – Late December (2013)/January (2014)

And here’s the cover reveal in all it’s beauty:

TLL cover (2)

The other reveal comes from a lovely lady by the name of Teal Haviland. She was one of the sweetest authors there and was kind enough to offer up some of her knowledge of the indie world. I’ve friended her on facebook and can confirm that she is just as sweet on line as she is in person! So of course, when she asked if I’d be willing to share the cover reveal for her novel,  I said yes.  Take a peak at the plot, her links and of course the cover!

The best plans come undone. The best angels do, too.

Gabrielle, the Angel of Karma, chose to live in a human body on Earth in hopes of learning what she needed to know to do her job better. She had no idea what she would discover, and she certainly didn’t expect things to go so wrong.

But that was then.

Now, she knows that Ramai and the Fallen have a much stronger hold on humanity than she first believed; that the Book of Barabbadon not only still exists but is now in the hands of the enemy; that demons are becoming more powerful; and that her new love, Lucas, has a terrifying path ahead of him—a path that could make him her worst enemy.

Now, she has to fight through more obstacles than she had before, and she has to do it while watching the clock—constantly reminding her, with each revolution around its face, that time is running out to make things right, to turn the tide toward Light in the Great War.

Gabrielle’s original quest has become more perilous. It’s not just about understanding what motivates humans anymore, she also has to figure out how to keep everything and everyone she loves from coming to an end. Soon.

Other than losing the War, Gabrielle doesn’t think the circumstances that have unfolded since coming to Earth could get much worse.

She’s never been more wrong.





Teal Haviland lives in Tennessee with her daughter and her four-legged friends. She enjoys photography, travel, reading, music, cooking, daydreaming, writing (of course), and above all spending time with her family and friends.

Teal grew up with a love for anything fantastical or outrageous. After years of dreaming of worlds where fairies, angels, demons, and shape shifters (to name a few) exist, she finally decided to begin writing her stories down. Inception, book one in her series The Reaping Chronicles, is her first published novel.
