You may or may not have already seen this, but there's currently a giveaway going on over on my Instagram account! I love bookish items, like bookmarks, candles, etc., and so I've decided to give you another chance at winning a candle based off one of my series!

In this case, you'll have the chance to win either a Ruckus candle, or a Trystan candle, two characters from my YA sci-fi romance, Amid Stars and Darkness!

Want more details?

Click on the link below to be taken directly to my Instagram post about the giveaway! Entering is super easy, and there will be TWO winners, so double the chance of winning! There are also a ton of ways to get extra entries, including leaving me a comment below letting me know which candle you'd prefer if you won!

Ruckus smells like a bon fire, and Trystan smells like cool cucumbers and basil.  :)

Here's the direct link, but you can always just go onto Instagram and find me through my handle @TempestChani :

*Sorry, this is only for US. Unfortunately, shipping costs are just too high for me to ship international.*


In other news, really quick, there's going to also be a giveaway for all three of the first books in the Underworld series, WITH new covers! That'll happen sometime this month, so be sure to check back for that! Again, most of this giveaway will be hosted on my Instagram (so you really want to give me a follow) but you'll be able to earn extra entries here! :)

I've also got a signed giveaway of Amid Stars and Darkness planned! I'm waiting a bit longer on that one, so it'll probably take place more in November. Keep checking back for that as well! I'll be including a couple other cool goodies in that one that I can't wait to share with you guys!!!

The Underworld Saga and My Depature from Polyethnic

Hi guys,

As I'm sure some of you already heard via Instagram, I am no longer an author for the Polyethnic Publishing. I did not make this decision lightly, and hold great respect for Melissa and her team, however I felt like I had to make the best choice for this book series, and so I have decided to return to self publishing.

To be clear, I'm only talking about the Underworld Saga, which was being published by the Polyethnic Publishing, a small up-and-coming publishing company. Unfortunately, it just wasn't a good fit for me and my work, and I felt bad that I was always giving you guys the wrong information, or information about release dates that was initially accurate but changed at the drop of a hat. I think it's important for me to note that I hold no ill-will towards the Polyethnic, and will continue to support the company and its authors.

So, what does this mean for the Underworld, you might be asking? (Who are we kidding, all you care about is Hadrian and we all know it). Well, Melissa was kind enough to give me the cover rights to the original covers to book 1 and 2, HOWEVER, after carful consideration, I've decided to discontinue using them.

Yes, they GORGEOUS. And yes, I love them, and am aware that you love them as well. However, after the feedback for book 3's cover reveal, I've realized not having a completed set will be more annoying and disappointed to most of you than having to start fresh. Which is what I'm doing. All new covers for the first two books as well as book 3! Book 4 will also have a cover that matches this (which I'm putting together now so that I can guarantee that), so while they're different, it means everyone can have an actual matching set in the end!

Sounds good really, doesn't it? I think so. As a heads up, these covers are VERY DIFFERENT. Please keep that in mind, and while your comments and questions are and always will be welcome, please don't just throw shade telling me how much you hate them. By all means, if you're not a fan let me know (I'm not going to change them but hey), just don't tear them apart.

As a thank you for bearing with me throughout this whole process since last December, I'm unveiling the first three covers, RIGHT NOW:



 
 
Like I said, please feel free to ask questions or leave comments below! :) I'm happy to clear anything up!
 
 
What this does mean or the series is I have to wait for all of the old copies to be removed from distributers, so the release of book 3 might be more like November 10th. That's only a few days after the 2nd, which was the original date, and I've got something planned to make it up to you guys, so check back!

*COVER REVEAL FOR BFAF*

Isn't it gorgeous?! I can't stop staring at it, and I can't believe I can finally share it with you guys! It's been driving me crazy having to keep it on lockdown this past month, you have no idea, but now I can show it off!

This is book two in the Xenith trilogy!!!

If you would like to read the entire reveal blog post I did for this, please follow the link below, which will take you to Swoonreads.com ! I talk a little bit about the book, when/where it starts off, and a bit about the characters. :)

https://swoonreads.com/blog/announcing-between-frost-and-fury-chani-lynn-feener/

Also, please go a head and add it to your Goodreads.com page, here:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35795893-between-frost-and-fury

I know a lot of you have been waiting and asking about when Between Frost and Fury will come out (and even if it exists--IT DOES), so I hope this helps to answer that and clear things up! It also has a release date, and is set for publication July 24th, 2018.

There are some really nice photos of this cover already on instagram, so check them out if you're on there! :)

Like always, questions and comments welcome! I hope you guys love this cover as much as I do!!!

*CANDLE GIVEAWAY*


Have you guys checked out my paranormal romance book, Bad Things Play Here, yet? If not, you should! I'll leave a link to both the ebook and paperback versions below! Also, ebooks can be purchased on Amazon.com for kindle, as well as on Smashwords.com for devices like ipads, nooks, kindle, etc.!

Anyway, some of you might have noticed a few Bad Things review photos popping up on Instagram, and if you have then you've probably seen the candle that was included in the package. It was made by The Bookish Flame, a candle shop you can find on Etsy, and smell like the main male character of the book (a mixture of citrus, floral, wood, and musk scents).


I'm giving one away for free!

All you have to do is follow the link below to Instagram, like the photo, and leave a comment telling me what your favorite myth is! Tag three friends as well. Extra entries for reposts! Sorry, but this is only available for people living within the USA.

Want an extra entry? Leave me a comment here and tell me your Instagram handle so I can confirm!

Here's the link:

As promised, here are links to the book:
 
eBook:
 
 
 
Paperback:
 
 
 
And for those of you who made it all the way to the end of this post, I have a little extra news. Because of the feedback for the cover reveal of Unbound, my publisher and I have started coming up with ideas on how to make the book match the original set. All of the reasons I gave before for why this wasn't initially done still apply, so I'm not making any promises, but we're working on it. As soon as I have more information on that, I'll post about it here, so keep checking back!
 
Thanks!

UNBOUND Cover Reveal!!!!

It's here! It's finally here!!!

I know! I can't believe it either! Again, I am so sorry it's taken this long, guys, BUT we finally have a cover for the third book in the Underworld Saga!



Just a few reminders beforehand (if you haven't already simply scrolled down and cheated), we had to use a different cover artist for this book because there were serious issues/complications with the original designer. I'm not at all happy about it, but my publisher for this book has done the best they can to come up with an equally amazing cover. It doesn't really match the other two, which for those of you who've been asking, I know, I'm sorry, that's disappointing to me too, but I still think you'll really like it! It's different, but fits the color scheme, and there are still some similarities.

So, without further ado, here is the cover for Unbound:

 
 
Let me know what you guys think about it in the comments below! Personally, I really like what was done with Hadrian, and I like that the author name is still done in the same style as the first two!
 
Remember, this book has a release date for Nov. 2nd!
 
In honor of the cover reveal, I'm doing a giveaway for (1) Reece candle, the main character in Bad Things Play Here, a connecting book to this series! If you're interested in finding out how you could win, check out my instagram page here:

Stuff This Month...

Hey guys (I'm going to gif the crap out of this, so advise reading on my actual blog so you can see them)!

So, this is going to be sort of a packed blog post, just to squeeze in small bits of information on multiple books! Firstly, lets start with the Underworld Saga, and its accompanying adult companion, Bad Things Play Here!

If you haven't checked the previous post, you might not be aware that Unbound, the third book in the Underworld Saga, finally has a release date!!! You can expect the book to be out on November 2nd!



We're still waiting on the cover, so make sure you keep checking back here for the cover reveal! The hope is to have it sometime this month!



I know there's been a lengthy delay on this book, so I want to personally thank you all for sticking with the series and still being excited for Unbound! I know a lot of you are dying to find out what happens between Hadrian and Spencer next, especially after the ending of Unleashed! AND if you're a big fan of their relationship, I suggest you check out Bad Things Play Here, so you can meet Reece and Piper (more on that book later)! Hadrian also happens to make an appearance.



Because I've been asked by a few people recently, I feel like I should mention again here that there will be FOUR books in this series. So there's still two more to go! And, if you haven't yet checked this out, happen to like Greek mythology, characters that grow up through the book, and weirdly colored trees, please do! Links to both books can be found on the left sidebar! Unleashed also is available in paperback, but for some reason can only be purchased in that format on Amazon.

Some of you know that I'm taking part in the Sketchbook Project, which is a global project where people sign up to fill out a sketchbook which ends up in a library to be viewed. Well, for this project I'm drawing a bunch of the characters from my books, which is why there's a separate section on this blog now for you to check out some of the drawings. I'm only posting a few of them, and before I've added them to the actual sketchbook project book. I'm also thinking about adding an exclusive short story to it! But that's getting way a head of myself. Anyway, the reason I bring it up is I recently drew another character you might know from Bad Things Play Here! If you're interested in seeing it, go ahead and click on the link at the top of the right sidebar to check that page! I've mentioned before I'd also love to include some fan art here, so please get a hold of me if you have some!

All right, I know this is a lengthy post, but the reason for that is I wanted to get all the small stuff out of the way at the beginning of this month. That's because, aside from the eventual cover reveal for Unbound (and possibly the second book in the Seven Deadlies series), I'll probably only be posting about giveaways and the like.

Yup, you read that right. Giveaways!



I've got a few in mind for both Bad Things Play Here and even Amid Stars and Darkness. Just waiting on a few select items to be finished and arrive in the mail so I can start putting things together. There are also a few really amazing review packages for Bad Things Play Here going out in the mail for a few people, so please be sure to keep yours eyes peeled on Instagram! This book is different from my others in the sense that it's a Paranormal Romance meant for an older audience (though it's been mentioned to me that it can easily pass for NA). I love these characters, and the story, and hope that you'll all give it a chance!

Quick recap:

Keep checking back for cover reveals, giveaways, and be sure to check out my drawing of Reece available now on the right sidebar!

All of these books (other than Unbound, obviously) are currently available for purchase in both ebook and paperback form (ASAD is in harcover)! You can get them by clicking on the cover images at the left sidebar!

Have any questions? Feel free to leave them below or get a hold of me on Goodreads.com! Curious about some of the items that might be included in the giveaways? Be sure to follow me on instagram (@tempestchani) because I'll be posting pictures of some of them!
