Meet (My Version of) Trystan!

Thanks to all the people who've taken the time to comment me, either here or on Goodreads or Instagram, to tell me about how much they love the book! It means the world hearing it, you have no idea! :)

Not sure if any of you have checked out the new page (link on the top right sidebar) BUT I've added a separate one for drawings! Right now, it's got a few of mine and a couple of coloring pages! Feel free to download and use the latter! I know some people have been working on fan art of their own, and I would LOVE to include it as well! If you've got something, the best way right now to get a hold of me to share it is on Goodreads.com. There are links to my account all over this blog, but you can always just go there and look me up :) Private messages are usually responded to within 24 hours!

Please, if you haven't already, rate and review Amid Stars and Darkness there as well! Ratings are a huge help in getting more people to see/hear/and actually read the book! And remember, it's available in bookstores and online! The hardcover is gorgeous with these amazing shimmery accents; it would make a pretty gift, just saying. ;)

Anyway, above is the drawing with a copy of the book, and below is a close up. These are photos, not scans, so the detailing isn't as good as if it were the latter, but I love these glow stars that came with my box from Swoon and had to use them! If you're curious about checking out more characters from this and other books, check the page! I'll be adding as I go. There's no set amount of time or anything like that. I'm just doing to draw when I feel like it.

I recently joined the Sketchbook Project (if you haven't heard of this, look it up!!!) and decided that I'm going to fill the book with portraits of characters from my various books. Generally, I'm a celebrity or commission work artist, but this seemed like a great opportunity to branch out with my art and try my hand at bringing some of these characters in my head to visual life!

Let me know what you all think, and if there's a particular character from any of my works you're interested in seeing, leave me a comment about it below! :)

Without further ado, Trystan:

Meet (my version) of Ruckus!

My book, Amid Stars and Darkness, released on the 18th!!!


Thanks to everyone who's already gone out and grabbed a copy! If you haven't yet, and you're into romance with a dash of sci-fi (and hot aliens) please do! You can find this in local bookstores, like Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, etc., or/and online at these places as well as Amazon, Target, Walmart...you catch my drift. :)

Anyway, to celebrate I decided to try my hand at drawing one of the main characters from this book! I had such great feedback from my drawing of Hadrian (from my Underworld Saga), so knew I wanted to share this drawing here on the blog, and not just on my instagram! If you do follow my instagram (@TempestChani) you might have already seen this! Above is a pic of it next to a copy of the book (obviously), below I'm putting a bigger one of just the drawing. This is a photo, not a scan, as I haven't yet gotten around to scanning it. I haven't decided yet, but I might do what I did with Hadrian and create a couple of signed bookplates with them. If people are interested, I'll hold a giveaway or something for a few, so let me know! :)

This is how I picture him in my mind (when I'm not thinking about Brian J. Smith lol), but of course picture him however you want!


I may draw Trystan next....We'll see.

In other news, really quick, don't forget about my Paranormal Romance, Bad Things Play Here, which came out in June! It's available on Amazon.com in both paperback and ebook! It's also up on Smashwords.com at a discount for another twelve hours or so!

I'm thinking about drawing Reece from that book eventually as well :)

*IN OTHER NEWS: Some of you have been asking about the review blog. Unfortunately, I had to take it down. My review partner hasn't posted in over three years, and it was getting to be too much for me to manage. Especially since I already post my reviews to my Goodreads account. I considered leaving it up so that people could still access author reviews and old reviews, but again, the latter are all on my GR, and leaving it for the first seemed like it would still be too much work for me. People would undoubtedly continue to request I review their work, and while I LOVE doing this, I honestly just don't have the time. It sucks, but there it is. So, that's why the review blog is gone. Sorry for anyone who's disappointed by this.

In happier news, I've added a new page over on the right sidebar, so check that out! :)

Blurb:

You can’t escape destiny…

Piper Anesidora hates her last name, and the Reaper and demon infested life that comes with it. For centuries, her family has been tasked with protecting Pandora’s Box, and ensuring it’s never reopened. That’s why five years ago she ran away, hoping to build a normal life, one of her own choosing. And it worked. For a little while. But now her brother has been taken by Orpheus, a malicious soul who’s escaped from the Underworld, and if that isn’t bad enough, he’s also stolen the box. The sooner she finds her brother and stops Orpheus from unleashing hell on earth, the better. Piper wants nothing more than to return to the mundane existence she’s created for herself. That is until she’s partnered with the one guy capable of making her crave more. She’s always been told giving into sin is wrong, but her ancestors clearly never met Lust.

You can’t resist temptation…

Reece Luben takes intimate knowledge to a whole new level. As the Greek god of lust, he has a long standing reputation to uphold as a playboy, despite the fact he’s grown bored with the game. It’s been centuries since he’s cared about someone other than his maenads, so he passes the time getting people to shed their inhibitions. As one of the few beings who can sense Pandora’s Box, Reece has no choice but to help Piper find and stop Orpheus, even though he’s avoided her family since the start of his second life. But the feisty Anesidora woman makes him feel things he’s long forgotten, and what starts out as one night giving into desire turns into another…and another. What happens when the god of lust decides he’s changing the game and playing for keeps?

Bad Things Play Here Release Date Announcment!

Bad Things Play Here has a release date!!!!



Excited, right? I'm excited! This is the first adult Paranormal Romance I've released in...a long time. I'm really hoping that you all enjoy it, especially because it's looking more and more like I'll continue with it and write about some more of those sins/gods! ;) But I digress.

I can't wait for you guys to meet these characters, and get to revisit some old ones (Hadrian, for instance)! This book deals with a ton of new people in the Underworld universe, but includes a couple trips down below, and a Reaper or two. This is an adult book meant for 18+, due to strong language and sexual themes. Please keep that in mind!




So, without further ado, the release date for Bad Things Play Here is...

JUNE 9th!!!!!!!



Unfortunately, I will not be setting up a preorder. I thought about it, but I'm waiting on the proof paperback copies first and those won't arrive until a few days prior to the release anyway so...But I will post links to all of the purchase sites on the 9th! This book will be available in paperback, and ebook, on Amazon and through Smashwords.com! If you don't know, purchasing from the latter allows you to get epub, PDF, and/or mobi. files, so you can read on multiple devices!

There's also currently a giveaway going on for (1) paperback and (3) ebooks, so be sure to check the previous post and sign up! Everyone gets a free entry, and there are a ton of other ways to enter as well!



I'm going to drop the blurb here again for you, and the link to the Goodreads.com account! Adding it to your TBR list will also make it easier to purchase a copy when it's out! :)

Giveaway!

Before I get into BTPH, figured I'd mention that there's a giveaway for Amid Stars and Darkness over on Goodreads.com right now!

Hey guys! I thought it'd be fun to host a giveaway for my upcoming Paranormal Romance, Bad Things Play Here! If you haven't yet heard, this book takes place in the same universe as my Underworld Saga! The only difference is while that series was meant for a younger audience, this book (which as of now is a stand-alone) is NOT. Again, this is an Adult Paranormal Romance book, with mature themes such as language and sexual situations. Please keep that in mind when entering!

All right, now that that's out of the way, the giveaway will last one month, and be for (1) Paperback copy, signed, and (3) eBook copies in any format the winners want. Here's the catch, I can only ship the paperback in country (USA). I'm sorry, but shipping costs are crazy and I can't afford to send them anywhere else. However, because of this I've increased the chances of winning an ebook copy for anyone living outside of the US. When you're entering, just scroll to the bottom and if you live in another country you can get an extra three entries added!

There are a ton of different ways everyone can enter, including a few that can be done daily. The exact release date of the book has yet to be decided, but it will be sometime in June. I know this process is moving rather quickly, but it's mostly because I don't want it to interfere with the book I have coming out in July (which is with a major publishing company). I'm leaving a link to the Goodreads.com page below (adding it to your TBR shelf gets you a couple entries!) as well as reposting the blurb!

Questions and comments are more then welcome! They even earn you more entries! ;)

About Bad Things Play Here!



I mentioned in the reveal that I was going to do a more condensed post for Bad Things Play Here, so here it is! If you haven't already heard, this is an upcoming book set in the same universe as the Underworld Saga. HOWEVER, it is an Adult Paranormal Romance, NOT a Young Adult Paranormal. Please keep that in mind! This means there were will be strong language and sexual situations not suitable for a younger audience. If you're wondering why the cover says Seven Deadlies on the side, that is because, while this is a stand alone, I've been playing with the idea of making it part of a series and writing a book for each of the seven deadly sins, which in my universe are known as, you guessed it, the Seven Deadlies. This is not definitive yet, but while talking it over with my cover designer, she really wanted to do something on the side like that so I figured, why not. If I end up doing more with them then this cover is already set, and if I don't...no harm. It still looks really cool, am I right?! :)

Anyway, there are a couple appearances by familiar faces from the Underworld books, but Piper and Reece's (who is Dionysus) story takes place before the start of Unhinged, and just after Spencer and Micah's incident on the bridge. The release date is looking like sometime in June as of right now, but keep checking back for a set date!

This is now up on Goodreads, so please go add it to your TBR shelves:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35179087-bad-things-play-here

Cover Reveal + Blurb!

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



I can't even begin to express how IN LOVE with this cover I am!!!! Like, crazy, head over heels, everyone-I-love-now-has-competition in love!



This cover has all the elements I was looking for! It's edgy, sexy, and a little bit mysterious. It was important for me, going into this, to make sure that the cover looked like the paranormal romance that it is. Even though it takes place in the same universe as Underworld, unlike those, this isn't a YA book, so I wanted to show a bit more skin to help make that clear.



But I also didn't want to make it too crazy. This isn't an erotica. (Have I tortured you guys enough, or did you just scroll down and get to the good stuff?) All right, well without further ado...

The cover of Bad Things Play Here!



What do you think? Do you love it?! As of right now, this is looking like a June release, and the plan is for it to be available in paperback and ebook! You'll have to keep checking back for updates about that, as it's all tentative at the moment! :)

I want to give a huge thank you to Melissa over at the Polyethnic Publishing for helping me with this cover! She put up with a ton of nitpicking on my part, and was super patient throughout! Also, come on! This cover is gorgeous! She seriously outdid herself! You should all go follow her on Instagram! ;)

And, as promised yesterday, I'm also supplying the official blurb below! I'll post the cover and blurb again in a more condensed fashion at a later date, for now I like all the pomp! Please let me know what you all think!!!! Questions are always welcome!

Cover Reveal Tomorrow!!!

I've been told that I should be able to do a cover reveal tomorrow!!! Yay!



I won't be posting it anywhere but on the blog, and by proxy, Goodreads! If you're reading this on the latter, than you should know that this post was originally written and up on the 18th, so you should head over to the blog to check the 19th post which will have the cover reveal! Goodreads updates a day behind, and you also miss out on all the funny gifs I use. I'm hoping to be able to do it by early afternoon, but we'll have to see! The designer is tweaking a few things first so fingers crossed!

I'm really excited for you guys to see this, AND once I've revealed the cover I can start thinking about organizing some giveaways! :) :) :)

So that I can tell you something today aside from that, I'll let you know that title has been decided and will be:

Bad Things Play Here!

When I reveal the cover, I'll also give you guys the blurb!

Books Books Books!

Hello! Hello! Hello!

Hope you all had a phenomenal weekend! It was Mother's Day so I spent some time with my wonderful mom (though, sadly we didn't make more egg rolls. If you follow me on Instagram, you know what I'm talking about). I just saw King Arthur today and LOVED it! So be prepared for some Charlie Hunnam gifs throughout this particular post ;)

The next few months a few things are going to be happening, so I figured I'd jump ahead and start talking about a few of them now before the crazy begins! Hopefully many of you have heard already about my book Amid Stars and Darkness, which will be released on July 18th! This will be in hardcover, can already be preordered, and will be available in bookstores across the country! I am VERY excited about this, as it will be my first traditionally published book! I can't wait for you guys to be introduced to these characters, to see how far the book has come since it was written over a year ago, and to get your hands on a copy of that beautiful cover!

Again, this will come out July 18th, and I'm sure there will be lots more I'll get to tell you about revolving that closer to the release date! Be sure to keep checking back for info! :)

In other news, I spoke a little in my previous post about working on a new book set in the same universe as the Underworld Saga. I want to say thank you to the people who contacted me through Goodreads offering to be beta readers! You guys have already been a huge help, and I can't wait to get the rest of the book finished and hear your thoughts on it!!!! Progress is going a lot faster than I hoped, and as of right now, it's looking like I might be able to do a June release!



I know, that seems rather fast to get a book out there, but as I'm working on this one alone, and kick started the beta process, I'm hoping that it's a doable goal. I'm still waiting on the cover, but I'm getting help from a friend on that one, so if it takes a little time, it takes a little time ;). As soon as I see it and it's where I want it to be, I'll do a cover reveal!!! There's also the matter of the title being a tad tentative at the moment, though I'm almost certain it's sticking to what I originally planned. We'll have to see. For those of you who know me, or have seen me through this process before, you know when I'm working through a project I'm a little bit like this...



So if I seem to fall by the wayside on a few other things (for example, I didn't post to Instagram today...whoops) that's why! I'm working hard on bringing this book to life! It's a story I've had in my head for a while now, which is why it's moving so quickly. Anyway though, here's a little more news about this book:

Currently, it's titled Bad Things Play Here, and the most important thing to know about it is that it is NOT a YA. Yes, I know. That's crazy. For the past few years I've focused most of my energy on writing young adult novels. Some of you may recall that I wrote a few paranormals at the start of my self publishing career, however. While I shelved those projects and they're no longer available, I realized the reason I kept hitting a wall with the Dionysus story I was dying to write was because I was going about it all wrong. I was trying to write a book about the God of Lust without putting too much emphasis and detail on the most important aspect of that. The actual lust. After some careful consideration, I started fresh and let the story take me where it wanted, without worrying about keeping it PG or even PG-13. The end result was an Adult Paranormal Romance! It's been such a long time since I've written one of these, and this will be the first time I publish one under my actual name so...yikes. That's a lot of pressure! BUT I'm passionate about these characters, and really glad that I found the right way to do them justice and tell their story! For those of you not into Paranormal Romance novels...



Personally, I love them. I read all genres myself (though I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, or mysteries) and hope those of you who do so as well will give this book a shot! To be clear, in case some of you have never ready a Paranormal Romance: This book is meant for an audience 18+. There will be language, and sexual encounters. While it may take place in the same universe as the Underworld Saga, unlike that series, it is NOT a teen book. Please keep this in mind! I don't want anyone accidentally reading it expecting something like Unhinged, and then being shocked by the swear words and, to be frank, the explicit sex. Though, also to keep things clear, this also is NOT an erotica. So please don't go into it expecting there to be just sex, because that's not the case either. I know. I'm making this complicated. But again, I've never self published a romance under my own name before, and seeing as how the rest of the work I now have available, or that will soon be available, is traditionally published and YA I feel like this is very important for me to emphasize.

There's a blurb in the works, but just to tell you a little about the plot, the book centers around Dionysus, the Greek god of lust. It takes place three months before Unhinged, directly after Micah's death. A malicious spirit slips through the gate, possesses a body, and steals Pandora's Box. Dionysus and the woman who's tasked with keeping the box closed, have to join forces in order to find it before it's too late.

Hadrian makes an appearance or two, which I love, but aside from that this is a stand alone. You do not have had to have read any of the Underworld books in order to understand this story, and there won't be any more books about Dionysus after this one. It will have a HEA ending, and won't leave you hanging or waiting for the next part of the story. :)

Questions and comments, as always, are welcome! Keep checking back for more news, an actual blurb, and the cover reveal! Thanks again to all the beta readers who contacted me!

Updates + Beta Readers?

Hey guys,



Figured I'd stop in and give you guys a few updates on what's going on. I still don't know anything about hardcover release dates for Unleashed. I know it's frustrating, it is for me too. As soon as I get news about it, I'll be sure to let you all know! I know some of you who purchased the hardcover version of book 1 have been waiting so that you can have a set.

The third book in the series, Unbound, is in the editing process. And my book Amid Stars and Darkness comes out in July! I'm really REALLY excited for this one! It's being published by Swoon Reads, and branch of Macmillan and you'll be able to pick up copies at the bookstore on release day! It's also available for preorder on both Barnes & Noble .com and Amazon! The book is being released in hardcover, and is a YA Sci-Fi Romance. Sci-Fi isn't my typical genre, so I'm even more excited about you guys getting to read this!

Also, remember the giveaway for a signed print of Hadrian Hale ends in a few days! You can enter two posts down! :)

In other news, I've started work on a new book set in the same universe as the Underworld. Some of you might remember the first attempt at Dionysus's story a few years ago. Well, I've reworked the plot and decided the reason it didn't quite feel right the first time I tried it was because it's not YA. So, it's either going to be an NA novel, or an adult Paranormal Romance (I'm leaning towards the later) just FYI. I'm hoping to get this written and edited ASAP. It's already a good chunk of the way through. :)

I'm looking for a handful of beta readers who might be interested in helping me out with this one. What would happen is I'd send you 3-5 chapters every week until the books completion. More than likely I'll be able to send you more, but we'll keep it to there for now. In return, I'd want feedback about how the story is going, and any concerns or grammatical errors (which there will undoubtedly be because this is a rough draft). Keep n mind again that this is NOT a young adult novel, despite the fact it takes place in the same universe and Hadrian makes a brief appearance. This will have adult themes, sexual situations, and a couple of swear words.

If interested, please leave me a comment and your email. I'll get a hold of you :) Or you can leave me a PM on Goodreads.com if you're more comfortable with that! :)

The cover is currently in the works, so the closer we get to release day, I'll schedule a reveal!

As always questions and comments welcome! Thanks for reading!

Hey guys,

If you've ever been curious about trying a book subscription box, or even just Book of the Month Club, I have a link you can use where you can get your first box for just $1!

Book of the Month gives you 5 options at the beginning of each month. These options have all been carefully selected, and reviewed, and you get to read a little bit about why the reviewer thought it was amazing. You then get to choose from the 5 which you want! They're always newly released hardcovers, and personally, I really enjoy the selection!

Print Giveaway!


Hey guys!

I'm doing a print giveaway of Hadrian Hale to thank you all for your patience while waiting for the hardcover version of Unleashed (as well as when you all waited for the eBook version)! Before that though...

I know a lot of you have been messaging me asking about hardcovers, eBooks, and about how the print is a bit smaller in the paperback version of Unhinged now, so I figured I'd do a post to clear some things up!

First: My publisher is working really hard to get the hardcover versions available ASAP. There've been a ton of unforeseen setbacks and complications, but they're being worked on, I promise! I can only tell you what I know, but they should be available soon.

Second: eBooks are available now! Not sure if any/all of you caught my previous post about it, but there's a link where you can purchase and download. Sorry for the wait on this, I know it was released a couple weeks after the paperback version came out. Again, apparently there were complications. :/

Third: Yes, I know the print in the new version of Unhinged is a bit smaller to read than when it originally came out. Sorry about this. But it means that there are less total pages so the book can be sold for cheaper. You guys get to purchase at a more reasonable price because of it, and hopefully it's not too small for you all to read it without getting headaches! I tested it out and I was all right. :)

LASTLY: The giveaway!



I'm going to be hosting TWO of these, one here for the blog, and another over on my instagram, so if you're interested, please head on over there tomorrow to check it out and sign up again for double the chance! The winners will each receive one 8x10 glossy print of my drawing of Hadrian Hale, signed, and if requested, also personalized. I'll even throw in an Unhinged bookmark to go along with it! If you want to see a full picture of the drawing, check the previous post. I've put up the image used for bookplates here only so that people don't steal my work (sadly, it happens. A lot).

So, quick recap: I will let you know AS SOON AS the hardcovers are available! The eBooks ARE NOW available! Check out my Instagram @TempestChani for another chance to enter to win this giveaway tomorrow! There will be TWO winners! Enter below! ;)

Awesome. I'm off to finish edits for book #2 of my Xenith trilogy. The first book, Amid Stars and Darkness, is now available for preorder by the way! You can find it anywhere, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, etc.! :)



Off to work I go!

Unleashed eBook + Paperback Available!


I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, I've been waiting for the eBook version of Unleashed to be available so that I could give you guys links! And it is!



If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen a bunch of photos of both versions of the paperback, and a test copy of the hardcover (which I've also posted here once before)! We're still waiting on the hardcovers to be available, but as soon as they are, I promise I'll let you know! And remember, these hardcover copies are going to have colored pages and ink! I know it feels like you've been waiting forever for these, and trust me, so have I. The publisher is working really hard to get these in print as soon as possible! So, for those of you rolling your eyes at me because I keep telling you they're coming, THEY ARE!!!!



Anyway, here are the links, as well as a link to the Goodreads.com page, because it's always easier to link to buy pages from there, AND you can add it to your TBR shelf! ;)

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34686800-unleashed

Amazon eBook/Paperback: https://www.amazon.com/Unleashed-Underworld-2-Saga-ebook/dp/B06Y6LTZ8C/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

This should also become available on Barnes and Noble, but it seems to be taking some time...hmm. But there you have it, and again, check back for when the hardcover is available! I'll try to keep you as up to date as I am!

I've got to go work on edits for the second book of the Xenith trilogy now! But like usual, questions and comments are welcome!

Surprise! (Also, Unleashed Paperback Out)

Hey guys,

I told you a few days ago that I had a surprise for all of those people who signed up for the book plates I was offering...well, here it is!


Meet Hadrian Hale! In honor of the Unleashed release, I decided to draw him and give you a guys a better idea of what he looks like in my head! I might do this with some of the other characters, but I haven't decided yet. I'd also like to eventually draw Ruckus and Trystan from my Amid Stars and Darkness trilogy, but that's getting WAY ahead of myself. Feel free to repost him, so long as you make sure to give me credit! I'm serious, stolen art isn't cool.

Anyway, bookplates are going to be of this photo, signed, and will hopefully be going out in the mail early this week! I really hope that you guys like these. It was a lot of fun to draw, and the first time I've ever drawn one of these characters in a realistic way. For those of you curious to see more of my art, I post it to a separate instagram account @TempestDraws and even have an etsy where you can buy prints!



In other news, the paperback version of Unleashed has been released!!! Currently, you can only purchase it on Amazon, and it looks like only in paperback form, not even ebook. Ebook and hardcover WILL both be available within the next few weeks, however, so if it's a matter of preference, don't worry! They'll be here! The hardcover will also come in two different editions, one with regular black inked pages, and the other with colored page edges, and colored ink! Exciting, right? Here's a link to where you can purchase the paperback:

https://www.amazon.com/Unleashed-Underworld-Saga-Chani-Feener/dp/1946105104/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1490552800&sr=1-1

I received my test hardcover copy of Unleashed the other day. I'm posting a photo below, but please ignore the white banner at the tope and bottom of the slip cover. Obviously, that was a misprint, and I've been assured that it won't be on any of the actual copies that become available for sale. Even with the misprint, it's so pretty! The font on the inside is a little smaller, just a heads up. A few people who saw the physical copy pointed this out to me, so I felt like I should point it out to you. This is because the book was already so long, and unless we wanted to sell it for a ton of money, something had to be done to condense it. It's not too fine, so don't worry. I think it's still perfectly readable. :)


So, what do you guys think? Should I do more of these drawings? I'm thinking about maybe making them into bookmarks as well...? Please comment and let me know! I'm also open to suggestions on who, if anyone, I should possibly draw next! :) For more pictures of this book, check out my instagram @TempestChani , and don't forget to sign up for the giveaway below, there's only three days left!

If you pick up a copy of Unleashed, thank you!!!!! Also, the first wave of March Polyethnic boxes have gone out! :)

Updated News about Unleashed Release!



I know, I know. Don't kill me. Things keep changing, and I keep having to post about them, BUT, change can be good! In this case, change also happens to mean you may or may not have to wait a little longer to get your copy of Unleashed however...



Now, before you get too upset let me tell you all the reasons this is actually a good thing! Let me also emphasize:

*If you ordered one of the VIP Polyethnic Boxes and you got a hold of the Polyethnic and requested the original covers for the books, your box WILL be sent sometime around the 25th, as previously stated. There aren't many of these, because for the most part, people love the exclusive covers, but for the few of your who did request the regular ones, those will be coming first.

*If you ordered one of the VIP boxes and loved the exclusive covers (like me) those will be going out just a couple of days later than expected. It won't be too much longer of a wait, but they've gotten delayed because of a couple didn't complications involving a couple different people and whatnot. Basically, due to some formatting issues, we won't be getting in the exclusive copies until early next week, hence why they'll be shipped out a little later. Trust me, it'll be worth it!

*The official release date for the paperback version of Unleashed has been moved to March 31st. Yes, this is a few days later than originally anticipated. Again, this is because of complications with formatting, and other things we could not have predicted ahead of time. Things that I won't get into. But I have been assured that this is the set date for the paperback!

*The official release date for the hardcover version is a bit more...tentative. There have been a couple of issues, but also a couple of amazing last minute changes that are the cause for this. As of right now, the Polyethnic is hoping for an April 7th release. Either way, I promise it will be in April, and they're aiming for around that date. It may be a few days sooner, or a few days later, but it will definitely be around then. For those of you who are super excited for the hardcover version (like me) please bear with me! Trust me, getting the hardcover as opposed to the paperback will be WORTH IT.

Want to know why?!



Okay. Here's why:

COLORED INK.

Yup, you read that right. The hardcover copies of BOTH Unhinged and Unleashed are going to now be in colored ink! If you've read books by A.G. Howard, you know what I mean, if you haven't, basically, all the font inside the book is going to be in color instead of black. For Unhinged, that's going to be red, and for Unleashed it's going to be a deep yellow/brown! Isn't that awesome?! For those of you worried about pricing, there is still going to be the option to get these in regular black ink as well. But, seriously, why would you? Colored ink is so much cooler (and they make awesome book photos!). I can't wait until I get my hands on copies!

So, yes, it does suck that the release dates have been delayed. For those of you getting VIP boxes, this delay isn't so bad, just a few days. For those of you waiting patiently to buy your copies, it's a little longer, but still nothing insanely extreme. Besides, the original ORIGINAL release date was late April, if you recall, so you are still getting it a lot sooner than you thought two months ago!

We're hoping to get the third book into motion now, that way when it comes out IN JUNE we won't have to deal with some of the same issues that sprang up with this one. Of course, most of these are because we changed the release date so last minute. It makes sense that we'd hit a few bumps in the road.

There are only a few days left to enter the huge giveaway! Make sure you go do that! And for those od you who stuck around to the end of this post, there's also a new giveaway for a YA Sci-Fi over on the review blog! It sounds like a really interesting book, so don't miss your chance to get a copy for free! The link to the blog is at the right sidebar, towards the bottom! ;)

I can't tell if my gifs are going to work or not, by the way. So if all you see are green bars...sorry. For some reason Giphy changed and I can't find news of it ANYWHERE, so it's impossible for me to figure out how to iframe imbed from there, and then this separate imbedding site seemed to be working at first but now...who knows. I guess we will once I post this. I'm too lazy to go back in and delete if they don't so have fun staring at green bars if that's all there is! If anyone knows what's going on, please let me know! I miss gifs. :(

Thanks to everyone who ordered one of the March "Be Our Guest" Polyethnic Fandom Book Boxes!!! I am so excited for you guys to start receiving them (they ship around the 25th of this month) and for you to finally get your hands on a copy of book #2, Unleashed! I know, the 25th feels like a million years away! Trust me, I'm right there with you! I don't get my copies until around the same time, and I'm going crazy waiting for them!


via GIPHY

Anyway, that's enough of that (mostly because I can't seem to get giphy to work for me right now...:/) BUT I have a surprise I'm working on for you guys! Well, more aptly, all of you who signed up for the free bookplate that I offered a few weeks ago! The bookplate is going to be a little different from the usual ones I send, and I've been working on sketches so that I'm sure to get it just right! The hope is that I'll have this done and ready to go around the same time the boxes start shipping, just like I planned originally :) These will be signed, and I've gathered all of your emails to let you know once they're in the mail so you can keep an eye out. I will post more about this later on, when I'm closer to completion, or when it's done and ready to go. Haven't decided which yet. We'll see.

Trying to keep this post short so let me speed through the rest of this really quick.

Remember there's still that massive giveaway going on below, so scroll down and click on the link to enter for a chance to win 4 paperback books!

There's also another giveaway going on over on my review blog, and it ends in TWO DAYS! So, if you were interested in winning more free books, head on over and enter quickly! There's an author interview to go along with this, so it's a fun way for you to learn more information about author Emma Jaye! I've got about 4-5 other interviews/giveaways planned for that blog in the coming month, so be sure to check back weekly in order to enter for chances to win! Free books are always worth it! AND I even have an author offering up a couple paperbacks, so you really don't want to miss it!

Full Cover Reveals + Giveaway(s) + Release Dates!


via GIPHY

I know. I've posted more this month than I ever have before. What can I say, there's been a lot to tell, and a lot going on! Especially in preparation for the release of Unleashed! A few people recently had a question about this, so I figured I'd take the time to answer it here, just in case there are others who are still confused...


via GIPHY


Unhinged, Unleashed, and Unbound were all SELF PUBLISHED a few years ago. The reason these are no longer available anywhere in those published forms (or at all, in regards to Unbound) is because they were picked up by a publishing company. That means they are no longer going to be self published, but traditionally published. Because of this, I could no longer sell them myself, as that would be a breech of contract. These books WILL become available again, with better covers, and a slightly updated interior. Unhinged is already available in stores in hardcover, paperback, and ebook. You can find it at Barnes and Noble, or Amazon. I'll tell you when Unleashed comes further down this post, and Unbound has a tentative release date for June 25th, of this year! There is still one more book in the saga after this, but there's no confirmed date for it yet, so you'll have to check back for information on that.


via GIPHY

But does that make sense to everyone now? The Polyethnic Publishing is publishing these books. That is why the original self published versions can no longer be found, and that is why Unbound, and even Unleashed, are not currently available. Both of these books WILL BE rereleased (obviously) in the year 2017. So you don't have to wait too long to get yours hands on them again.

Okay. Hopefully that cleared that up, now onto the fun stuff!

I know what the full covers are going to look like, and I'm not telling!!!!!


via GIPHY

Just kidding. Obviously I am, otherwise what would be the point of this post? Exactly. Anywho, I got both full covers for the original versions and the exclusives! Do you want to see them? You do! (I know, if we were in the same room together, you'd smack me and say, "Chani, no amount of Hiddles gifs can make up for this level of annoyance", to which I would reply, "Liar."). I'm in CT stuck in this snow storm. As you can probably tell, I'm going a bit mad. But all the best people are.

HERE is the full cover of the original version of Unleashed:



And HERE is the full cover of the exclusive version:


For those of you late to joining the party, the exclusive version of this book can ONLY be purchased by grabbing yourself one of the Polyethnic Fandom VIP Book Boxes! And what's more, if you do this, you also get a paperback copy of the first book in the saga, Unhinged! That's a deal, right? It is. It really is. I also happen to have the full covers of Unhinged! Surprise!


via GIPHY

So here we go! The original was actually revamped to better fit the second cover! That does mean that this version is a little more detailed than the original ORIGINAL that was released on Dec. 25th. However, the changes aren't so extreme that any of you who bought the first release should feel left out! Here's that:


And here is the exclusive full cover that can only be purchased by getting the VIP box:

 
They're beautiful, aren't they? I absolutely love them, and I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out! I especially love that Hadrian cover! I know I've gushed about it before in previous posts, but I can't help it!

 
via GIPHY

Crunch time, I know this is a long one but please continue to bear with me! The release date for Unleashed is going to be...

March 25th!


via GIPHY

I've been told that boxes will ship around this time as well, so keep an eye out for those! You're almost out of time to order yours, so if you're interested, head on over by clicking the link in the previous post! I know it's a long way away, considering how lengthy I made this one, but it'll be worth the trek. Trust me.

AND last, but certainly not least, there are TWO giveaways currently going on! One is for the huge giveaway the Polyethnic was generous to put on, which you can enter in (shocker) the previous post as well! The other is a giveaway going on over on my review blog, which after months and months of neglect, I am now trying to revive! I am doing this by offering up two months worth of giveaways and author interviews!

You read that right! I'm going to be hosting a weekly giveaway for random authors! This is your chance to try out something new, and to do it for free! All you have to do is head on over to the review blog and enter! There's a free entry for everyone, and you can get it on the daily! Right now, the giveaway is for two ebooks from author Emma Jaye! There are blurbs and an author interview on the blog, so if you're curious (like Hadrian Hale tends to get) go and check it out here:

http://readinginthewindowseat.blogspot.com/

Again, check back weekly, because there will be a new giveaway/interview every week for at least the next month (starting this week)!

All right, that should finish it up! Cover reveals, check. Mentioning of the giveaways, check. Loads of Tom Hiddleston gifs, check. Yup, that about covers it. Remember guys, the huge giveaway ends the last day of March, and the other one on the review blog is over on the 20th! So if you're going to enter, do so now!

As always, thanks to everyone who actually stuck around to read this entire post! Questions and comments always welcome!

Only One Week Left...




















There's only one week left for you to buy your Polyethnic VIP Book Box! This box comes with TWO paperback books, the first book in my Underworld Saga, and the second which will release shortly after! The versions that come in this box have EXCLUSIVE covers that you can't get anywhere else! The box also comes with an author letter from me, bookmarks, chocolate, and a few other super fun items that have to do with the theme of the month: "Be Our Guest"!


via GIPHY


via GIPHY

Seriously guys, don't miss out on the chance to own these exclusive covers! They were made ONLY for this box, and I've got to say, I absolutely love them! I can't wait to get my own copies--especially of the first book which features Hadrian! Am I right?! *Swoon*.

There aren't many of these boxes left either, so if you are planning on grabbing one, do so quickly! I'll be shipping out those signed bookplates I promised people around the same time the boxes go out, and I still have about three left, so if you're interested leave a comment below! In case you don't want to bother scrolling down to the previous post, here is the link to where you can purchase your box:

http://store.thepolyethnic.com/product-tag/book-boxes/

They're switching all of their boxes over from the Polyethnic to the Bookish Army, which is the reason this is now the only link to get a box! So if you've tried one of the others that I left they might not be working for this reason! More of a reason to grab yourself one of these boxes before it switches over and gets a new makeover!

To everyone who's already signed up for the HUGE GIVEAWAY below, thanks! Hope you're all excited for the end of the month when the winner will be announced! Remember, some of those entries can be done more than once, so on the daily! For those of you who don't know about this yet, check out one of the past posts for more details, and enter for a chance to win FOUR paperback books, as well as author signatures! :)

And for those of you who lasted this long and read through this entire post (though I DID give you an Alec gif, which was pretty awesome of me...) I've got a surprise! I don't usually do these, so this is a first for me, but I figured after giving the same news over and over, you guys were due for something new!

Here is a sneak peak quote from Unleashed! Just a little tidbit to help set the scene, something happened to Spencer, and this is Hadrian's response! ;) Vague? Too bad.


via GIPHY

Just kidding. I know, I'm taking this whole gif thing way too far. Anywho, feel free to share the quote or use it in your eventual Goodreads reviews! Lol. Here it is:



I'm really excited for you guys to get this book, mostly because both versions of the cover are gorgeous! But the contents are okay too. ;) These books were written almost four years ago now, and my writing has changed so much over the years. But I'm still super grateful for this series, and all of the love and support I've gotten from everyone over the years for it! I hope you guys all love the second book!

Comments and questions welcome! And if you want to post a comment here and use it as an entry into the giveaway, feel free!

Unhinged + Unleashed Exclusive Cover Reveals!!!

I thought about releasing these separately, but decided against it. For one, the book boxes that include these exclusive covers are already on sale, so the longer I waited to show you, the less of a chance you had of actually getting to purchase one! Besides, I'm also not that cruel, to dangle one in front of you and without the other...

So, hopefully by now we've all already seen the original covers, but, if you haven't you can take a look over on the left sidebar. The covers, as well as links to where both books can be purchased, are there! BUT if you haven't yet gotten your copy of Unhinged, you might want to consider getting the Polyethnic VIP book box instead, because it comes with copies of BOTH the first and second books in this series, AND it comes with the exclusive covers I will be showing you in a moment!

Before I do that however, I'd like to mention the current giveaway going on! You can either check the previous post below after you're done reading this one, click the page on the right sidebar that says Current Giveaways, or just let me give you a quick recap! This giveaway is for (4) paperback books published/soon to be published by the Polyethnic Publishing! One winner will receive all four, as well as bookmarks and signed bookplates by all of the authors whose books are included! This is a one time box offer, and there can only be one winner! There are a ton of different ways to enter, and there's also a FREE entry! So be sure to check it out, because everyone loves giveaways and getting free stuff, right?!

Speaking of free stuff, I still have a few bookplates available! If you're interested in receiving one from me, for free, please leave a comment either here or on the original post! Quick tip: All of my previous posts can be easily accessed by clicking on the past posts section on the lower right side bar! This will help if your just curious to check out past posts, or if you're looking for something in particular--like the original post about free bookplates and how to get one! Again, I've only got a few of these left so if interested act fast!

And now for the moment you've all been waiting for (well, at least if you didn't cheat by scrolling down already...)! Let me just say, that I absolutely LOVE these covers! They're very different from the original covers, which I think only adds to the appeal because they are exclusives! There's only one way to get them, and once they're gone, they're gone! I'll do them one at a time. Here is the new exclusive cover for Unhinged:



Holy Crap, right?! Hadrian is HOT! I absolutely love this cover, every single thing about it! Fun fact, I helped Melissa (who created these two covers herself) pick the stock photo for this one! I loved this image of the guy covered in what looked like Underworld Ash, and I think the hands are such a spooky nice touch. Plus, his blue eyes, am I right? Everything else Melissa did herself, and she did such a fantastic job! I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy of this!!!

And here is the big Unleashed cover reveal...


AH! Look at Spencer! I didn't have any hand in this one, which Melissa created first. Isn't it beautiful? I love that it has this somewhat eerie feel to it, perfect for this series! I also love the colors and the font! I think these two make such a beautiful set, and I am so excited to have them showcased on my bookshelf and on my instagram!

So, to recap, these two gorgeous covers will ONLY BE AVAILABLE if you purchase one of the Polyethnic's VIP March "Be Our Guest" boxes! Frustrating? Maybe. But it's the only way! After all, that's what makes them exclusive, right?

You can find a link to the purchase page these in a previous post, or by clicking on the original cover image for Unleashed on the left sidebar. There is also a regular box, which is a little cheaper than the VIP, but that will only come with a paperback version of Unleashed. It will have the exclusive cover, but the ebook copy of Unhinged, which comes with it, will probably be the original cover. So, if you really want both of these (and, come on, who doesn't want that Hadrian cover, honestly?) purchasing a VIP box is the only way to do so! These boxes don't just come with books either, there's also a ton of other really fun and great items included! A few examples are bookmarks, prints, and chocolate! To make it easier for you, here's the link again to the VIP box purchase page:

The original covers will be available in stores (the first book, Unhinged, already is), so you'll be able to pick up a copy in either hardcover or paperback at Barnes and Noble, or even on Amazon! You did read that right, by the way. The original covers can be purchased in hardcover! If you haven't yet seen pictures of the first book in hardcover, go check out my instagram (or even previous posts)! It's so pretty! I'm crazy excited to add the hardcover copy of Unleashed to it. That's the best part, is that both of these different cover sets are so beautiful and unique! Personally, I'm definitely glad that I'll be getting both!

Side note: Some of you may have noticed that the original cover for Unleashed was altered yesterday. This is because we realized I had been given a slightly duller version, which unfortunately, was the one that was posted here and on goodreads.com. Now that it's corrected, you'll find that the colors are a lot brighter, and therefore, in my opinion, a lot better! I just think it's all around prettier.

Okay, so that should be it for now. I really hope you guys love and enjoy these exclusive covers as much as I do! And if you like both these and the original, why not buy both? A cheap way to do it is by getting the VIP box now, and then purchasing copies of the original covers later! There's no exact release date for Unleashed yet, but it will be coming out sometime in March, right after book boxes go out! We're still working at the design and actual book, so we don't want to give a set date just yet. But it will definitely be March, obviously, seeing as how this is the book for the months box!

All right, suggestion? Let's all scroll back up and stare some more at that Hadrian cover. Sigh. Thanks for reading guys! As always, questions and comments welcome! Let me know what you all think of the covers!!! Especially that Hadrian one. Damn. Am I right? Lol. ;)
