Happy Friday everyone!
I'm super excited to take part in the cover reveal for Kelly Keaton's upcoming book, Embers in a Dark Frost! You might be familiar with Kelly's YA series, Darkness Becomes Her and she also writes an Urban Fantasy series under the name Kelly Gay.
The cover is designed by the amazing Claudia McKinney at Phat Puppy Creations (and Hot Damn Designs did the typography). I LOVE it!
Embers in a Dark Frost
by Kelly Keaton
Release Date: November 15, 2012
The Fire Breathers have come. The Underworld calls. A choice must be made…
With her feared half blood and flame-colored hair, DEIRA D'ANU is a constant reminder of human betrayal and the war that claimed the light from Innis Fail. Now, darkness and frost creep across the land, strengthening the Lord of the Underworld. War is imminent—an allegiance with the Fire Breathers is vital. When their champion, Balen, sees Deira, he believes she is the key to finding the light and stopping the dark frost....
But the Underworld calls to Deira, tempting her to turn her back on a world that never cared and betray the champion willing to sacrifice everything to keep her safe and save his world from darkness.
This is a New Adult Fantasy book and according to Kelly, it's heroine driven and inspired by Irish mythology. That sounds really awesome and right up my alley, so I can't wait to read it!:D And I love how the cover seems to fit the story perfectly! That background gives me chills.
Kelly is a multi-published author with six novels currently in print. She writes the YA series, Gods & Monsters (Simon & Schuster), and the Charlie Madigan series (Pocket Books), which are written as Kelly Gay. She is a two-time RITA nominee, an ARRA nominee, a Goodreads Choice Award finalist, and has landed on the Southern Independent Bookseller's Alliance's Book Awards Long List and their Okra Picks List. Kelly is also a three-time Golden Heart Finalist and a recipient of North Carolina Arts Council's fellowship grant in Literature.
On the personal side, Kelly loves ancient history, fantasy, and mythology. She dreams of one day attaining magical powers, discovering the secret to immortality, ridding her home of pet hair, and being crowned Mardi-Gras queen. She likes pre-Raphaelite art, moonlight on snow, and RPGs. She lives in North Carolina with her family, one Great Dane, and two incredibly hairy cats.
