Spotlight: Laura Howard

Hello everybody! Today I'm spotlighting the author of The Danaan Trilogy. Laura Howard is known for her quirky random questions on Facebook. I've recently read The Forgotten Ones and I definitely think fans of my Lark Trilogy would enjoy this series as well. I have already downloaded Stone of Destiny and I can't wait to read it!


Stone of Destiny (The Danaan Trilogy Book 2)

by Laura Howard

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance





Blurb:


Allison thought it was crazy enough when she found out her father, Liam, wasn't entirely human. But now she has to join his magical allies to unravel his former mistress's plans. Aoife wants to keep Allison's parents apart forever.

Despite Allison's efforts to keep Ethan, the only guy she's ever cared about, out of this supernatural mess, fate keeps throwing him back into the mix.

Will Allison be able to find the amulet that holds the enchantment Aoife placed on Liam and destroy it? Are Ethan' s feelings for Allison strong enough to endure the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan?

About Laura:

Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known.

Cover Reveal: Sea Swept

Even though it will be early next year before I publish this so it's probably really early to reveal the cover, I am anyway! I'm a rebel like that!
No seriously, I have a good reason. :)
Since I'm naming the main character in Sea Swept after my daughter Addie, it seemed only fitting to reveal the cover and blurb on her birthday!


So Happy 7th Birthday Addie-cakes! Here's the cover to YOUR story:



 
         Addie McKay has always had an intense fear of the water. For as long as she can remember, she has had terrifying nightmares of drowning so she's made it a habit to avoid the ocean at all costs —which made growing up with the Atlantic Ocean in her backyard rather difficult.
         At fifteen years old, all of her friends spend their free time swimming in the cove behind her house, but Addie just can't make herself get that close to the sea. She prefers to stay dry on the sand where the risk of actually drowning is impossible.
         She's never had a reason to step foot in the ocean until one night when she's forced to dive into the salty depths to save her friend. She forgets all about drowning when she makes a startling discovery below the surface—an enchanting mermaid kingdom straight out of a fairy tale.
        When it appears she is somehow connected to this mystical realm, Addie has to find a way to balance her fear of returning to the water and the desire to know more about who she really is. 
        Unfortunately, she's about to learn of a hidden threat looming beneath the surface that makes her realize there is more to her lifelong fear of the water than she ever imagined possible—and that it may be the only thing keeping her from being swept away by the sea.



Sea Swept will be a stand alone novel BUT I'm currently writing a prequel to the story that will be included in an anthology with my fellow bloggers/authors from A Dash of YA. The prequel will be called Riptide and while it won't be necessary to read it before Sea Swept, it will just "add" to the experience.
Riptide will be a novella featuring one of the other characters from Sea Swept and it will cover events that took place years before the beginning of Sea Swept that set everything in motion.

I'd like to print some limited edition paperbacks of Riptide as well but as of right now, it will not be available separate from the anthology.

Now that I've finished Lark's journey, I'm super excited to be starting another adventure!

Are you ready for Like The Dawn?!

As you know, LIKE THE DAWN is releasing SUNDAY! *squeal!*
I've never done any sort of release day giveaway so I thought I'd plan something this time and hope that it's a good one! LOL

So on release day, I'm going to do 4 giveaways spaced out throughout the day and probably lasting until Monday or Tuesday since I know Facebook is weird sometimes about letting people see posts.

What's up for grabs?
Well, THREE lucky winners will win a swag pack including:
Signed Lark Trilogy Postcard
Lark themed bracelet
Author Erica Cope pen
The Lark Trilogy silicone wristband
One of Lark's favorite chocolate-dipped chocolate chip granola bars


AND


ONE lucky winner will win a signed set of the entire Lark trilogy!

How will you enter?
I'm going to make a status for each giveaway and all you have to do is comment with a screenshot or some other proof that you bought LIKE THE DAWN and bam! You're entered! Easy enough, right?

LIKE THE DAWN will release at only .99! This price is for a limited time though and after about a week or so it will be priced at $2.99 so grab it while it's cheap and tell you friends!

In the Shadows will also be getting a price change ($1.99) but Lark will remain the same (.99).

I hope you guys are as excited as I am about this book! Don't forget! LIKE THE DAWN is out this Sunday (may 25th)!
