Moonless Cover Reveal, Creepy Freebies, & Insecure Writer's Support Group

Today I'm sharing a stunning cover reveal for Book One of the Maiden of Time series, details of how you can get free fiction TODAY, and exciting news from the Insecure Writer's Support Group.

The Cover Reveal

Jane Eyre meets Supernatural

Alexia must choose safety and an arranged marriage, or true love and being hunted by the Soulless every moonless night.

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they’re echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.

Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.

Author Bio

Crystal, author of MOONLESS, is a former composer/writer for Black Diamond Productions. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese. 
You can find her on her blog and Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

Congratulations, Crystal. A stunning cover. Another book to go on my wishlist.

The Insecure Writer's Support Group now has a website and Facebook page. How cool is that? A massive thank you to everyone involved in setting these up. I know this is going to make a lot of writers, including myself, very happy.
