Yay! The day is finally here and I'm free to share the cover and blurb for book two of the Darkride Chronicles, Crossfire! The book is in final revisions and will be out sometime in early 2013. The cover was designed by Once Upon a Time Covers, and I couldn't love it more, but I'm dying to hear what you think! Team Ander, are you happy? Team Luke, can you forgive me for putting Ander on the cover of this
one? (I promise I'll make it up to you!) And do you remember way back, when readers helped me name the raven Grimm? Well, there he is! Leave me a comment with your thoughts!

And here's the back-cover blurb! But be aware *this blurb contains SPOILERS for Darkride* so if you haven't read the first book in the series, don't read this! But if you have read Darkride, read on!
            It’s hard to move on when someone you love dies – especially if that someone is you. But that’s exactly what Cicely Watson is trying to do: move on, away from the sunlit life she knew and into her life as a vampire. It’s the only way to protect her friends, and her only hope of being with the guy she loves. Now that Ander can control the wolf inside him, Cicely is determined they will finally be together – even if their natural instincts tell them to tear each other apart.  
            But when Ander meets a new girl with a power he can’t resist, Cicely fears she saved his life only to lose his love. And what about her own feelings for Luke Marianez, the handsome vampire prince? She always claimed dark, brooding Luke simply wasn’t her type, but can she still deny the fire between them now that she’s his kind? When the enemy captures someone she loves, Cicely is forced to choose. Can a heart that stopped beating start loving at last? Or will true love be caught in the crossfire?

Attention Book Bloggers!

Book bloggers, would you like to be part of the cover reveal for Crossfire, the second book in the Darkride Chronicles? It's coming right up on Tuesday, Nov 27th, and I would love to have you join Simply sign up at AToMR Tours! I've been working on the blurb and I think Once Upon a Time Covers did a wonderful job on the cover, so I'm dying to hear what you think!

In other housekeeping news, this site can now be reached at www.darkridechronicles.com as well as by typing in our old address, www.darkridethenovel.com. Either one will do. Same site, just a change in domain name to get ready for the second book.

Now, I'm going to go back to revisions. I'm hoping to hit the half-way point of the final draft today. Wish me luck!

For the Crossfire Playlist

Just added this to the very end of the Crossfire playlist. It's one of my favorite songs at the moment and I've been listening to it a ton. Crossfire revisions are going slowly but surely and I am still very much hoping for a January release, if all the stars align. One star who is already in alignment is my copy editor Jennifer Meegan, who has committed to editing Crossfire. I'm thrilled, because Jennifer did an excellent job on Darkride. The cover and blurb for Crossfire are almost ready to share and I am beside myself excited for the cover reveal! Soon soon soon! Keep watching this space and the Darkride fan page on facebook! Not long now...
