Since this is the third week of the Blog Tour, I'm going to try something a little different.
Along with the blog tour stops, I'm also highlighting a cover reveal for a current critique partner, Emma Adams.
Emma Adams spent
her childhood creating imaginary worlds to compensate for a disappointingly
average reality, so it was probably inevitable that she ended up writing
fantasy and paranormal for young adults.
She was born in Birmingham, UK, which she fled at the first opportunity
to study English Literature at Lancaster University. In her three years at
Lancaster, she hiked up mountains, skydived in Australia, and endured a
traumatic episode involving a swarm of bees in the Costa Rican jungle. She also
wrote various novels and short stories. These included her first publication, a
rather bleak dystopian piece, and a disturbing story about a homicidal duck
(which she hopes will never see the light of day).
Now a reluctant graduate, she can usually be found in front of her
writing desk, creating weird and wonderful alternative worlds. Her debut
novel The Puppet Spell, published in January 2013 by Rowanvale
Books, is a fantasy tale for young adults and the young at heart, featuring
disappearing uncles, invisibility potions and chimeras.
Emma also writes dark and creepy supernatural novels for older teens and
adults. Her next book, Darkness Watching, is the first in the
upper-YA/New Adult Darkworld series, and was published in
October 2013 by Curiosity Quills Press.
Watching, by Emma Adams
Genre: new-adult, urban-fantasy,
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Date of Re-Release: September 1st,
Eighteen-year-old Ashlyn is one interview
away from her future when she first sees the demons. She thinks she’s losing
her mind, but the truth is far more frightening: she can see into the
Darkworld, the home of spirits - and the darkness is staring back.
Desperate to escape the demons, Ash
accepts a place at a university in the small town of Blackstone, in the middle
of nowhere - little knowing that it isn’t coincidence that led her there but
the pull of the Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping
demons from crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.
NOW BACK TO ME...
All-night parties, new friendships and a
life without rules or limits are all part of the package of student life - but
demons still stalk Ash, and their interest in her has attracted the attention
of every sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a
group of other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could offer the
answers she’s looking for. The demons want something from her, and someone is
determined to kill her before she can find out what it is.
In a world where darkness lurks beneath
the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be…
