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:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BZPNWE6HrYp/?hl=en&taken-by=tempestchani

 
 
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!

All right guys, finally, this is it! I'm going to tell you when you can expect the third book in the Underworld saga!!! Celebrate!



I know a lot of you have been waiting a while to find out when this was going to be available! We're so sorry it took so long for us to get some news! There were a few complications and well...none of that is important now!

So without further ado, the official release date for Unbound is....

November 2nd!!!



Just kidding! It'll be November 2nd even if it is windy!

Again, sorry it took so long to get information about this to you guys! If you haven't already, you have until November to catch up and read the first two books in the series! Links to these can be found by clicking their cover images on the left sidebar! :)

Please stop by for the cover reveal which should be happening soon! Hopefully sometime next month (so September)! Until then, the blurb has been updated on Goodreads.com, so check that out if you haven't already!

In other news: I'm hoping to plan a giveaway soon! If interested be sure to let me know! :)

That's about it! I'm off to make sure everything for Unbound runs smoothly so it comes out on time!!! ;)

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!

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?

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:

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!

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. :(
