This just in - the paint's a little wet so be careful not to smudge it ;> Cover art for SCENT OF MAGIC for the UK edition. Which will be released 18 December 2012.
So? What do you think? I love the colors and there are some really neat elements. But...white? Not the uniform I imagined, but it's eye catching, which is what the cover art is supposed to do -get the book noticed.
Here in the USA we celebrate Thanksgiving and reflect on what we are thankful for. I've a long list, but one of the main things I'm very thankful for are my readers! They rock! They've given me such joy over the years! So I'm doing a Thanksgiving Give Away Extravaganza of 6 books! This is for my readers so I've put in questions so I know you're a reader and not some random person hoping to win a book. These give aways are open to ALL!!
Are they the Study Series or the Glass Series or the Soulfinder Series or perhaps the Chronicles of Ixia?? There's been lots of confusion over the names and lots of questions coming my way over the reading order. So I'm posting the definitive AUTHOR recommended list of the books and short stories in reading order from first to last (covers are current USA print editions):
ICE STUDY (short story - http://www.mariavsnyder.com/IceStudy.php)
NIGHT STUDY (January 26, 2016)
DAWN STUDY (forthcoming February 28, 2017)
No cover art yet!
I hope this helps :).
Hello! Today I'd like to introduce you to A. L. Kaplan, the author of STAR TOUCHED. She's a super lovely lady and talented author. I had the pleasure of reading her book a few months ago for a potential blurb, which I happily provided.
She is also offering to give away 2 copies of STAR TOUCHED to two lucky winners. To enter, go to the Rafflecopter form below. It's limited to US and Canada only.
Here's the cover blurb: Eighteen-year-old Tatiana is running from her past and her star-touched powers. Her power to heal may be overshadowed by more destructive abilities. Fleeing the persecution of those like her, Tatiana seeks refuge in a small town she once visited. But this civil haven, in a world where society has broken down, is beginning to crumble. Will Tatiana flee or stay and fight for the new life she has built? Only by harnessing the very forces that haunt her can Tatiana save her friends and herself.
