Fan the Embers has a new cover

Final cover for Figor Book 1

I know. I know. It isn’t even out yet. But even though I debuted that cover months ago, I was never completely okay with it. It, quite blatantly, wasn’t good enough for the story contained therein.

Then I found Lillith Adams on Facebook. A design of hers blew me away and I asked her to design a new cover. WOW. She prepared two completely different designs. I loved them both, but this one fit the storyline.

Check out the new cover for Fan the Embers.

Book cover for Figor Book One
Part of the Figor series:

It’s 2096, Earth is relatively new to the intragalactic game, and 18-year-old Earthen Hugh MacGivens thinks he’s going to spend a few months on a distant world with his ambassador parents. Instead, he steps onto the planet to find he’s Earth’s selection for solidifying an alliance with the genderless people of Figor—by mating with a local.

Trend a’Bahn is ready for xys life to begin. Xe wants to gain an apprenticeship to a master builder and find xys mate in claiming season. Never would xe have expected an attraction to an offworlder.

While the two navigate claiming season, an undercurrent in Figor emerges. They don’t like anything non-Figorian and they hate what Hugh represents. As peaceful as Figorians are, a fire has been lit. If their beloved Empeer won’t stop such a mating from occurring, they will take care of it themselves.

Hugh came to Figor for a few months and possibly the rest of his life. If they have their say, his life ends now.

Sci-fi, fantasy, and all that jazz

I started off in sci-fi/fantasy. I was making up fantastical tales from the time I was a child. Under my other names, I will continue to write romance, but I’m thrilled to also be going back to my roots, so to speak.

Currently I’ve finished the drafts of two new projects that will be published under this name – or a derivation thereof. One is military/paranormal and is 102k currently in its 3rd draft. No romance whatsoever. It’s more mainstream with a huge dash of paranormal/fantasy because that’s the way I roll.

The second project I’m thrilled to talk about is the first in what will either be a 2 or 3 book series. It’s a combo of genres. Young Adult, light sci-fi, suspense, and the romance pairing is male/non-binary. I’ve got the cover created and am working on the marketing copy. Once I have a release date, I’ll fill you in with all of the above 😉

For now, I’ve got releases each month under my other pseudonyms. I’m guessing the second project will be released this fall, but until I’m sure I won’t name a date. I’m unsure of when the first project will be complete. Once editing is done and finished, I’ll need to make the decision on whether to pitch it to an agent or to self pub. Since I’m on the self pub train at the moment, I’m leaning toward that, but we’ll see.

Current release roster for 2017: (Pseudonym)
January: Released – Vespar (Thianna Durston)
