Special Project Announcement

It seemed appropriate to reveal my special project to you on Teaser Tuesday. I needed to wait for the excitement of the Channeler's Choice tour to dim, yet here we are swept up into the mega contest of awesome (i.e. the Nook giveaway) so it seems my plans have gone awry. Nevertheless, my publisher says I may now announce the special project and I decided not to wait.

My young adult historical fantasy about the last of the druids in ancient Ireland, To Ride A Púca, is releasing this May from Compass Press! It is a tie-in novel to the channeler series, but it isn't officially a part of it. I'm so excited because this is a novel that was written from the depths of my soul. Here is a bit about it:

They say to ride a púca changes your life forever. That doesn’t sound so bad to Neala. Her kind are hunted down, forced to live in obscurity, or be slaughtered. 


But when an old enemy threatens her country like never before, the druids will have to decide; rise up and fight beside those who have betrayed them, or give over their country and save themselves. 

The big cover reveal will be next Monday with nearly a dozen of my favorite blogging buddies. If you'd like to be part of the reveal and post it on your blog, leave me a comment. Here is a teaser from the cover to hold you over:

  34. Heather, I think I messed up on "revealing" on my blog. March was a month of madness around here and I was blogging about India. I hope everything went well. Your theme sounds fabulous.
