A year ago today I wrote a post called “In the Works”. Since it’s been a year, I figured it was about dang time I wrote a new one, and let you guys know all about what mischief I’m currently getting into!
The day is here, and it is official. HAVEN IS PUBLISHED!!!
It feels like I’ve been waiting forever for this to happen. After a few issues in production,
and a long editing process it felt as if HAVEN would never get off the ground. But here we are. HAVEN is now available on the Friesen Press bookstore. You can pick it up in ebook, paperback or hardcover. It’ll be available at other online retailers soon, but in the mean time, Friesen Press is your golden ticket to the Warshard world!
You can BUY IT HERE.
Before you go, hopefully off to read HAVEN, I’d like to thank the World’s Best Story contest and the Friesen Press team for making my dream a reality. To my best friend Shelyse, for putting up with my revisions and nagging to read the early drafts, and to my parents for being supportive through it all. THANK YOU guys, and thank you to every one of my friends and family who have supported me through this endeavour.
I hope you all love HAVEN half as much as I do!
Stay classy internet!
PS – You can also add HAVEN on Goodreads and leave a review if you like it!
Princess Haven was never meant to be Queen.
Her immortality has saved her time and time again, but when the last of her royal family dies at her feet, she is next in line to rule a nation on the brink of war. With no formal training on how to be Queen, Haven must rise to the occasion with the help of her best friends, and personal guard, or risk losing everyone she has ever loved.
With war to the West, and no escape to the East, the evil tyrant Kadia sets her sights on the six kingdoms. Haven’s neighbors are quick to fall under the swords of Kadia’s shadow soldiers, leaving a sea of bodies and a clear path to Haven’s only home. Haven must make a choice; take her people and flee to the foreign Republic across the sea or lead a last stand against a powerful dictator.
Read the first 3 chapters for free! Chapter one.
For a while now I’ve been thinking about whether I should separate my writing material from my mostly gaming/review channel, and create something new JUST for writers and readers. Last week I finally decided that THIS IS THE WAY TO GO, so low and behold, I have a new SOLELY WRITING channel!
The announcement went up yesterday on my usual channel, so if you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it out and leave me suggestions for what you’d like to see on the new channel!
You can find my new Youtube Channel HERE.
I’ve been meaning to do this for some time now, and with Haven just a couple weeks from release, I’d say it’s about time!
Without further ado, this is the cover I came up with, with the help of Friesen Press and their graphic designers:
Personally, I think it does a great job of conveying everything I’ve ever wanted in my cover. I couldn’t be more in love with the font, editing and overall image. I do hope everyone loves it as much as I do, and feel free to share with your friends!
Now for something equally as exciting! I’m going to be giving away an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Haven to one random commenter. The winner will be chosen a week from today. So please comment below on this post for a chance to win a free ebook!
Thank you all for your support, and I’m so excited to share HAVEN with you!
Stay classy internet!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Eve: The Awakening, in my opinion, was a great debut for Jenna Moreci! It was interesting, had compelling characters, an intriguing plot and all around made me want to read more and more and more! All fans of YA/NA sci-fi would most likely enjoy this book given a chance.
The story follows Eve, a chimera who witnessed her parents death at a young age. She’s grown up pretty much by herself, in awful circumstances, which definitely make you feel for the girl. But finally there is a light on the horizon in the form of Billington University in SoCal. But everything is not as it seems at Billington, and soon Interloper (alien) attacks spread through the campus. While Eve struggles to get through classes, worrying at any moment that the aliens could come for her, she meets an awesome cast of characters who eventually ban together for a LOT of badassery. Jason, Percy, JJ and Sancho are my personal favourite. Each of these characters were quite well developed and I cannot wait to see them in the next book.
