Laura Eno Cover Reveal & Passing Time Launch Day Request

Today I have the honour of revealing the cover for paranormal romance and fantasy writer, Laura Eno's Jewel of Shaylar.

The Blurb:  

Archaeologist David Alexander investigates the cave where his father disappeared and hurtles into another world, one filled with magic and bizarre creatures. The mad ravings in his father's journals of icemen and dragons may not be fantasies after all.

Convinced his father may still be alive, David begins a treacherous journey to find him and discover a way home. Along the way, he encounters a few unlikely friends. A Dreean warrior, a beautiful thief and a satyr join him as he searches.

David's arrival into this new world sets off an explosive chain reaction of events. Faced with powerful adversaries and few clues, he may not get the chance to rescue his father before disaster strikes, condemning both of them to death. Or worse.

Thank you, Laura. I don't know about anyone else but this cover has certainly grabbed my attention. Simply stunning.

Passing Time Launch Day

Passing Time will be published two weeks today. Can you believe it? It hasn't quite sunk in yet.

I'll be sharing my journey into indie-publishing with you all in a series of blog posts, but I can tell you it's been quite a journey so far. I didn't fully comprehend just how much work was involved and the number of decisions I would have to make. On. My. Own. But I've had an incredible amount of help along the way. While it's been a steep learning curve, which I'm sure is no where near ending, I could not have done it without both voluntary and professional help. Thank you, everybody.

A lot of you have already generously helped promote my book through the cover reveal, and will be helping with my upcoming blog tour (March 11th - 22nd). But if you're not helping in any way, and would like to give my book a shout-out any time from the 11th - 22nd, please sign up via the linky below and I'll send you the information you'll need.

Before I settle down with my morning coffee to watch the Oscars (Yes. I am crazy enough to get up in the early hours to watch them), a quick reminder of what's happening on my blog this week:
On Wednesday I will be interviewing Speculative Fiction Writer, Simon Kewin. Then on Friday I'll be unveiling my time capsule in the Back From the Future Blogfest. I can't wait!

Happy writing.
