I've been dying to scream out from the rooftops about this novel since I beta read it for Christine over a year ago now. It is so amazing that I have trouble finding the words to describe it. All I can say is that you MUST read this novel, it is utterly breathtaking. I'm beyond excited that it is coming out this September through Compass Press. It is called Transcend and it's by Christine Fonseca. Here is the cover:
Wondering what all the mystery of the masquerade is about? Well, along with the cover reveal the participants are revealing a secret of their own. My secret: This winter my very first high fantasy novel is set to release! The date isn't solid yet, Compass Press says somewhere between November and February depending on editing. Get ready for dragons, sword-wielding warriors, and fair maidens who can kick some butt. My second secret (why yes, I'm generous, you get two): I'm terrified. Agents and many of the big 6 publishers say fantasy is a hard sell. Thankfully the team at Compass Press feels differently. Fingers crossed that they're right and that you'll all read and love it!

You're very welcome! Thank you for being such a wonderful supporter. :)Delete
Heather, I'm so excited for you!ReplyDelete
And don't pay any attention to what agents say: THEY ARE WRONG 50% if not more of the time.
A woman who wrote about Ameila Erheart was told by her agent not to write it and if she went ahead it wouldn't sell. It is top selling non-fiction right now. Wish I knew the woman's name!
GO HEATHER GO!!!
Aw, thanks. And I love that, great advice!Delete
