Happy Book Birthday: Light a Candle for the Beast and @EchoShea #Paranormal #FairyTale #Gothic

Happy book birthday Light a Candle for the Beast!

Light a Candle for the Beast
Publisher: Roane Publishing

Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Keywords: Romance, Paranormal, Paranormal Romance, Fairy Tale, Beauty and the Beast

Release Date: November 26, 2014

If you’ve ever been caught in a riptide, pulled down into the water, then you know me. Or, more accurately, what I’m like when I’m angry.
Delia was beautiful, smart, and kind. He wasn’t. He said he loved her, but he didn’t know what love was. He was manipulative and cruel—more than a thief. A beast.

All she wanted was a rose… 

These are the words on my sister’s grave. Her sadness, her obsession, forever a reminder I didn’t–couldn’t save her.

I’m not vindictive or cruel. I’m simply as the river–my memory is winding and my reach is long. I watched him steal her beauty, her essence. Watched him become a beast. He thought he’d get away with it, thought he’d go free.

I lay a rose upon my sister’s grave.

Light a candle for the beast.

Cover Reveal: Light a Candle for the Beast by Echo Shea #Paranormal #Romance #CoverLove

Well, well, well… look what the cat drug in. Yup, me. Alive and well, working hard at the job, the family, and building a publishing company. I would add writing to the list, but I haven’t had much time for that of late. Hoping to do a little bit today, if I can manage to sit still long enough.

I want to apologize for letting the blog posts fall off into the abyss. I would swear to not let it happen again, but, well, I don’t like making promises I’m pretty sure I won’t keep… Blunt, Becca. That’s me. But, as I was recently reminded, you wouldn’t have me any other way.

For my gracious return to blog-dom, I have a treat — one of my favorite types of blog posts — a cover reveal. You all know how much I love covers, most especially ones I happen to have created myself. And, being the attention whore I am, I’d love to know what you all think of it. Drop your thoughts in the comments area at the bottom of the post.

Course, you can’t do that until I share it with you. So, here she is…

Cover and Blurb Reveal – Portals: A #Fantasy Anthology @Roanepublishing

Today I have the (less and less) rare opportunity to share in a cover reveal for a cover I actually created. This one is for Roane Publishing’s upcoming fantasy anthology, PORTALS, which releases June 5, 2014. In addition to having the priviledge of sharing the cool cover with you all, I also have the descriptions (blurbs) for all the stories to be featured in the anthology.

So, without further ado…

Story Blurbs:

Maronda’s Quest by Christy Thomas

Lenox works to prove his worth to wed her, his true love, but it appears a wizard plots to remove him from Maronda’s life forever. To secure their future together, Lenox decides to accompany her on the quest, even if forbidden. He must ultimately choose between using his dragon fighting skills which could lead to his death, or give Maronda her greatest desire.
In the end, it’s Maronda who must learn to live with the consequences of his decision.

Mexmur, the Huntress by Anna Simpson

Blurb: Long ago a dragonkeeper betrayed his charges. To bring back magic, to set things right, Mexmur is sent through the portal.
Can she succeed armed with only a poem, talon and blade?

Entrance of Lost Souls by Echo Shea

Blurb: A guardian to the entrances between worlds, Gladys has been called to bring a little girl back from Fairyland. Passing through the Entrance of Lost Souls is no fun, neither is hunting down a deranged banshee, but what is a guardian to do?
And, is the banshee really kidnapping the girl…or saving her from something else?

Where Once were Hearts by Havva Murat

Blurb: After losing both his parents, his entire fortune and his childhood sweetheart, Master Bartholomew Battlesby sets out into the wilds of Northern England to make the acquaintance of his only surviving relation, the landed recluse, Mr. Horatio Grimsby who has an eerie penchant for both tinkering and clockwork. But, on finding his relation dead, with a gaping hole in his chest, and the beautiful, but scornful, Miss Evangeline Witherop ruling in his place, Bartholomew learns there is more than one way to lose your heart.
Can Bartholomew reignite the spirit of love and mercy within Miss Witherop, or will he suffer the same fate as his poor, heartless cousin?

Ordinary World by Laurie Treacy

Blurb: Imagine a new neighbor moves next door, a creepy guy who gives fifteen year-old Amy Silva the willies? Amy wonders what the stone archway in the backyard is for. Her life becomes even more stressful when her family reveals they’re witches. Could Amy’s new neighbor have anything to do with a local girl’s disappearance or be a threat to her magical loved ones?

The Lunatic Queen by Michael Siciliano

Blurb: The land of Mershinka has been thrown into perpetual night. Their King is dead and a moon witch, known as The Night Queen, rules from the royal palace in Grosnov. An endless fog shrouds the land, killing crops and starving the populace. Cold-eyed enforcers put down rebellions while volksa, twisted wolf-creatures, roam the mists looking for prey. Many have given up hope and wait for the inevitable end. All seems lost.
Two teenagers, Pavel and Tamara, devise a plan to kill Vazya the Night Queen when the moons Kainsk and Seresnya are down, end the stifling enchantment, and bring the sun back to their dying land. But, they need a watch to tell time, a compass to guide them through the mists, weapons to fight off Vazya’s minions, and all the courage they can muster.
