Countdown to Amid Stars and Darkness!

Okay, so it's still technically a ways away, BUT it's NEXT MONTH!!!

AND I got to see what the hardcovers look like!!! That's the picture above! Aren't they gorgeous?!

I can't believe it's so close! I'm crazy excited that this book is getting published, and I can't wait for all of you to get a chance to meet these characters and hopefully fall in love with their story! In celebration, I've tried my hand at one of those fancy (not really) novel aesthetics everyone is always talking about! I don't own any of the images used in it, just so you know! Here it is:

Swoon Reads also put up a post on their blog written by me about my pen name, Tempest C. Avery, and why I originally started using it in the first place. If you're interested in checking it out, please click this link below:

Keep checking back for more fun info and extras on this book; there's a lot coming to lead up to the release on July 18th!!!

Side note: The paperback copy from the giveaway of BTPH was mailed out today!!! I didn't announce or contact the winner because I wanted it to be a surprise! ;) Hopefully it'll get to you (with the holiday) by the end of next week at the latest! :)

Thanks, guys! As always, questions and comments welcome!

Bad Things Play Here Sale!

Hi guys,

So because of the issue over on Amazon where people couldn't buy the ebook (and the fact I've been super busy as of late) I've decided to offer a sale on the price! If you don't know about Smashwords, it's a great ebook site that makes it easy for authors to publish and distribute their ebooks! You can get a .mobi, ePub, and PDF all from this site by purchasing the book once! That means you can read it on multiple devices!

Usually the price of the book is $2.99, but for the next week it's going to be only $0.99!!! :) Go grab your copies before the sale is over! And don't forget, if you prefer paperback, the book is also available in that format on!

Or at Barnes and Noble here:

In other news, my book Amid Stars and Darkness comes out next month! It's being published by Swoon Reads, on July 18th! I'm really excited about this, and can't wait until we can walk into the bookstore and see it on the shelves!!!

Because of this, expect more posts about that! I've got a couple blog posts with them in the works, as well as a few interviews, so you can head over to their site to check it out (as well as their other amazing authors!) or keep popping back here. I'm going to try and post about it and keep you all in the loop as often as possible!

For a look at the hardcovers check out my instagram @TempestChani !

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?
