ILAVANI by Kaelan Rhywiol — Cover Reveal!

Today is #CoverReveal day for ILAVANI, the first book in a new science fantasy series.

Here’s the cover! Also check below for info. on the book, the author, and how to preorder!

 

About ILAVANI

The first installment in a long-running, science fantasy series based in a queer, pagan, polyamorous, universe.

3800 years in the future.

Maëlcolm is a skilled BDSM trainer, a spy, and unfortunately, a prince.

Cameron is Maël’s older brother, titular heir to their father’s kingdom and in love with his enby bodyguard, Li.

Kat is a slave. A genetically modified being created for one purpose, and one alone. To please her masters in bed.

Los is a gifted Companion, the only thing that makes him happier than practicing his calling is loving Maël, the one man Los can’t have an official relationship with.

If Maël doesn’t give up his calling and do as the Ard Righ demands, his family loses everything.

If Cam doesn’t do what he needs to do to become worthy of the throne by the Ard Righ’s stringent standards, their family may be executed.

If Kat, autistic, touch-averse, and afraid, chooses to fight her fate, she’ll die.

When an artificial intelligence named ‘the high king’ is at the helm, the cost to human hearts may be impossible to bear.

Kaelan was born and raised in upstate NY, in the Adirondack mountains.

Xie started writing when xie turned 11 and hasn’t ever stopped as evidenced by the massive amount of notebooks and digital files of xyr writing xie has hanging around. (We just moved, so trust me, it was a shock to see how much of it there really is.)

Kaelan holds a B.A in bioanthropology/forensic chemistry and an MST in education/world history. Xie loved University, so holds minors in English, Creative Writing, Linguistics, Graphic Design, and Modern Dance.

Xyr hobbies include reading, spinning wool with a spinning wheel, cooking, knitting, sewing and making jewelry.

Xie currently lives in Southern Ontario, Canada with xyr husband of 19 years, their two kids, a foot fetishist of a cat, two crazy kittens, and a grumpy chinchilla.

The best place to connect with Kaelan is on twitter, where xie spends way too much time.

STARSWEPT by Mary Fan — Cover Reveal!

It’s cover reveal day for Starswept by Mary Fan! This sweeping YA sci-fi romance will be released on August 29 by Snowy Wings Publishing. The cover features photography by Roberto Falck, with graphic design by Streetlight Graphics.

 

Title: Starswept
Author: Mary Fan
Release Date: August 29, 2017
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Some melodies reach across the stars.

In 2157, the Adryil—an advanced race of telepathic humanoids—contacted Earth. A century later, 15-year-old violist Iris Lei considers herself lucky to attend Papilio, a prestigious performing arts school powered by their technology. Born penniless, Iris’s one shot at a better life is to attract an Adryil patron. But only the best get hired, and competition is fierce.

A sudden encounter with an Adryil boy upends her world. Iris longs to learn about him and his faraway realm, but after the authorities arrest him for trespassing, the only evidence she has of his existence is the mysterious alien device he slipped to her.

When she starts hearing his voice in her head, she wonders if her world of backstabbing artists and pressure for perfection is driving her insane. Then, she discovers that her visions of him are real—by way of telepathy—and soon finds herself lost in the kind of impossible love she depicts in her music.

But even as their bond deepens, Iris realizes that he’s hiding something from her—and it’s dangerous. Her quest for answers leads her past her sheltered world to a strange planet lightyears away, where she uncovers secrets about Earth’s alien allies that shatter everything she knows.

 FULL JACKET:

Welcome to 2017 — The Year of BOOKS!

I am dubbing 2017 “The Year of Books” because I will be releasing at least 4 books in 2017!

THE LIGHT FROM OTHER SUNS will release in March, and its sequel, THE DARK OF OTHER SKIES in April from White Tulip Press. These are Book One and Book Two in THE OTHERS scifi trilogy.

CROWN OF ICE (2nd, revised ed.) will be published by Snowy Wings Publishing in early May, and its sequel, SCEPTER OF FIRE, in late May. These are Book One and Book Two in THE MIRROR OF IMMORTALITY fantasy trilogy.

I may also release a new version of FACSIMILE in late 2017 or early 2018, so stay tuned for more information on that.

Of course, I plan to write more books as well — including the third book in THE OTHERS trilogy, THE ECHO OF OTHER EARTHS, and the third book in THE MIRROR OF IMMORTALITY series, ORB OF LIGHT. My goal is to release both of those books in 2018.

I have a few more writing projects planned as well — including completing my YA Fantasy, THE DIAMOND THIMBLE, and perhaps another cozy mystery under my penname, Victoria Gilbert.

So, for me, 2017 will definitely be a year for the books!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! Here’s to much joy and success in the next year!
