Cover Reveal – The Graces

The Graces Promo

Eeee! Well, I told you that I’d be able to share some more information about The Graces soon and here it is! I’m a bit in love with this cover. It’s got a real retro feel to it and, following the note that I received last week, I’m now even more curious as to how the shells factor into the plot.


A Candle, Three Shells and a Mysterious Note…

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the delay in posting my review of Rogue by Julie Kagawa. I made a last minute decision to use Camp NaNoWriMo to redraft my novel and so my blogging is going to take a back seat over this month. Sorry for any disappointment that this may cause!

If you want to stay informed about my writing progress, please keep an eye on my Twitter or my Camp NaNoWriMo profile page. If you want to sponsor me, you can do so by clicking [here]. All proceeds go to supporting the National Novel Writing Month – a non-profit organisation that provides support and resources for budding writers.

Now I’ve seen the cover, I’m even more psyched. Click on the picture below if you want to see it in its full glory:


It’s so pretty! I understand the gold bits will be be foiled on the final book too so it’ll be even more shiny. I’m not usually the sort to use reaction pics but I think that this one expresses my feelings right now better than words ever could:

Steven UniverseRoll on February!

A Curious Note…

On arriving home this evening, I found a curious envelope on my door step. It bore no return address and carried with it the distinct scent of sand and exotic spices. On opening it, I discovered that its only contents were a small compass and a note:


What could it all mean? Could this be an indication that my magical adventure will soon begin? I suppose that only time will tell…
