Release Day! The Shadow Aspect, The Harvesting Series Book 2, & $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

It's release day for The Shadow Aspect!

It's been such an interesting ride for this series. I'm so pleased to finally bring this novel to you. 

Insportation comes from a lot of different places. One of the main settings in The Shadow Aspect is a college. Why? Well, in the novel you'll see just how well fortified this old college really is. I took my inspiration for this setting from somewhere I used to work. Here is a shot of me a couple of summers ago at Mercyhurst University in North East, PA:

The place where Layla ends up, Claddagh-Basel College is inspired by MNE. I love all these old colleges in the northeast, many of which were designed based on castles. Claddagh-Basel is no exception.

The Shadow Aspect has gone though a few transformations over time. To match with The Harvesting's first cover, we have a few other covers we tried, both of which were designed my Michael Hall Photography. I love the eerie feel of both of these covers. Aren't they pretty? The problem was we though they spoke to a younger audience. And there is quite a bit of steam on The Shadow Aspect, so we went with the new design from Liliana Sanches.

I hope you've been enjoying The Harvesting Series. Check out Witch Wood, which is a 2.5, coming this October! The paperback of this novel is coming soon and an audiobook is well underway too!
