TOUCH OF POWER COVER ART!

Yes - I'm home from Australia/New Zealand - had a fantastic time and will write a whole blog on my adventures :)  But I just sent out a newsletter with the cover art for TOUCH OF POWER - the US and UK covers to 7700 people, and before they go viral, I wanted to post them here as well :)  I'm NOT going to post the first chapter of TOP as that's special for my newsletter subscribers ;>  It will go on my website around Sept 15th.

Without further ado....here they are:

USA Cover

UK Cover
So what do you think???

And for those who haven't heard about my upcoming book (coming out December 20th according to Amazon and Amazon UK) - here's the cover copy:

Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan assumes their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Fifteen Realms, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.

Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture. Their leader, an enigmatic captor-protector with powers of his own, is unequivocal in his demands: Avry must heal a plague-stricken prince—leader of a campaign against her people. As they traverse the daunting Nine Mountains, beset by mercenaries and magical dangers, Avry must decide who is worth healing and what is worth dying for. Because the price of peace may well be her life....

  11. I am very excited abou this book coming out!I prefer the UK cover, but I will take any cover just to be able to read your newest book!!!!

  12. I'm glad everyone is excited - I'm always worried when I have a new series and character - don't want to disappoint my readers :)

    And some have already commented that Avry's healing powers are similar to Yelena's and that's correct - I wanted to explore that aspect more in depth than I did in the study books so gave Avry the same type of healing - however she can do a little more with it than heal and that's all she can do...no soul finding for her ;>

    And Touch O Ppower will be released as an adult book in the US and YA in Australia and the UK - but it's my same style - I don't write any different no matter what the label says :)

  13. You've got me so excited for this book! I'll probably end up procrastinating more course work to read Outside In in enough time to read Touch of Power the day it comes out!

  17. Oh! oh! oh! Can't wait to read it! But first; I want to read Inside Out and Outside In before this book comes out. :L

  18. I love your work and can't wait to read it! I'm going to order it on line so that I don't have to wait the extra month it takes for it to come out here :D

    Why does it take longer to be released in Australia???

    Is the book set in the same world as your Study and Glass novels???

    It sounds similar from the little bit that I got to read in the first chapter ...


    PS. Why would you tease us like that?? Now we have to wait another 3 to 4 months to read chapter two! :D

  19. I wish I could read this right now. I get excited just thinking about it.

    I love the uk cover.

  20. Is this series going to be a trilogy like the others, or is it just going to be these two:

    Touch of Power
    and
    Scent of Magic

    ???

  21. Amazing covers! I hope there's going to be ARC's or eARCs on netGalley, that'd be totally awesome! (I'm a new fan, and this'll be the first relese that I'm knowingly wanting!) I don't want to wait till December!

  22. Yes, I am evil ;> and you'll probably get another taste of TOP in my next newsletter.

    And I'm pretty sure the healer series will be 3 books - not quite a trilogy as I hope each of my books have a core plot that is solved - unlike trilogies, where that middle book is nothing but middle - as a reader that drives me crazy so I always call my books series :)

    The third book is called Taste of Death - I have the whole touch, scent, taste thing going :)

  23. Yay! A new series! *happy dance*

    I love the covers! TOUCH OF POWER sounds great! I'll be adding it to my wish list on Goodreads.
