Greenshift Cover Reveal from Heidi Ruby Miller

Introducing the upcoming release from Heidi Ruby Miller!  She's been a guest here at the blog and a great resource for this fledgling author, so I'm pleased to help her spread the word on her latest cover reveal for Greenshift.  Enjoy!

To celebrate the cover reveal for Greenshift, the e-book will be temporarily 99 cents at Amazon!

A tale set within the world of Ambasadora.
Mari's rare eye color makes her a pariah within Upper Caste society, which is why she prefers plants to people...except David, the former Armadan captain who shuttles scientists around on a refurbished pleasure cruiser.
But someone else is interested in Mari and her distinctive look--an obsessed psychopath who tortures and murders women for pleasure.
When the killer chooses Mari as his next victim, the soldier inside David comes alive, but it is Mari who must fight for her own life and prove she isn't as fragile as the flowers she nurtures.
Greenshift by Heidi Ruby Miller
Cover Art by Bradley Sharp
Foreword by Dana Marton
Space Opera/Science Fiction Romance paperback coming from Dog Star Books in August 2013

Cover Reveal - Revelations of Preston Black

Today it's a cover reveal for the newest novel by Jason Jack Miller.  I think it looks pretty cool - don't you?

Coming June 2013 from Raw Dog Screaming Press
Cover Art by Brad Vetter

Preston and Katy face a new darkness.... Sometimes a battle between good and evil doesn't look much like the ones they show in movies. The good guys don't always wear white, and they don’t always walk away with the win.

And sometimes you're better off with the devil you know.

The last time Preston went down to the crossroads, his best friend died and he nearly lost his brother. But Old Scratch doesn't take kindly to fools, especially not those who come knocking at his front door. And before all is said and done, he's going to teach Preston a thing or two about what it really means to sacrifice.

It Has Begun

Well June has finally arrived!

After two months of preparation, my Tribute Books blog tour for Running into the Darkness begins in earnest this coming Monday, June 3rd.  It's very exciting, but also rather nerve-wracking.  I'm putting myself out there for a stranger's forthright comments about my work and exposing myself to potential ridicule.  But in the immortal words of the Lion King - it is time!

So if you also have time, please go over to the website created for my tour and recommend the site to your friends and family.  Feel free to comment on each applicable blog site too.  There will be guest post topics, interviews, and reviews of RITD - so something new and different every day of the tour. 

Who knows?  You just might find out all sorts of interesting tidbits about little 'ol me and my writing habits.  Probably more than you wanted to know. :-)

Then (and this is the best part) be sure and click on the Rafflecopter link either on each day's direct blog page or at the bottom of the tour website to enter for a chance at a $25 Amazon gift card or PayPal cash.  This starts today and goes through the end of June. 

At the end of the tour, I'll also have some exciting news about another special give-away.  Stay tuned!

Now off to work on Rising from the Darkness.  The series is almost complete.
