Fantasy Authors Unplugged: Cover Reveal from Mae Clair

Welcome to Archer’s Aim today where Fantasy Authors Unplugged makes a return. Today we veer into a slightly different genre, but still speculative with a cover reveal for an upcoming book from Mae Clair:

 

Release Date: January 15, 2019
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Supernatural Thriller
Publisher:  Kensington Publishing • Lyrical Underground Imprint

BLURB:
The past is never truly buried…

Generations of Jillian Cley’s family have been tasked with a strange duty—tending the burial plot of Gabriel Vane, whose body was the first to be interred in the Hode’s Hill cemetery. Jillian faithfully continues the long-standing tradition—until one October night, Vane’s body is stolen from its resting place. Is it a Halloween prank? Or something more sinister?

As the descendants of those buried in the church yard begin to experience bizarre “accidents,” Jillian tries to uncover the cause. Deeply empathic, she does not make friends easily, or lightly. But to fend off the terror taking over her town, she must join forces with artist Dante DeLuca, whose sensitivity to the spirit world has been both a blessing and a curse. The two soon realize Jillian’s murky family history is entwined in a tragic legacy tracing back to the founding of Hode’s Hill. In order to set matters right, an ancient wrong must be avenged…or Jillian, Dante, and everyone in town will forever be at the mercy of a vengeful spirit.

End of Day can be read as a stand alone novel or as a follow-up to book one of the Hode’s Hill series, Cusp of Night.

End of Day is available for pre-order through this link

book cover for Cusp of Night, a mystery/suspense novel by Mae Clair

BLURB:
Recently settled in Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore, especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual “Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone dressed like the Fiend.

Compelled to discover who is behind the attack and why, Maya uncovers a shortlist of enemies of the Hode clan. The mystery deepens when she finds the journal of a late nineteenth-century spiritualist who once lived in Maya’s house—a woman whose ghost may still linger.

Known as the Blue Lady of Hode’s Hill due to a genetic condition, Lucinda Glass vanished without a trace and was believed to be one of the Fiend’s tragic victims. The disappearance of a young couple, combined with more sightings of the monster, trigger Maya to join forces with Leland’s son Collin. But the closer she gets to unearthing the truth, the closer she comes to a hidden world of twisted secrets, insanity, and evil that refuses to die . . .

Story Empire Roadshow Featuring C. S. Boyack

Thanks for visiting today! Join me in welcoming C. S. Boyack, one of my fellow contributing authors from Story Empire. Also, welcome to a lot of new visitors today from various other blogs and groups including those from Story Empire and Craig’s followers. Take it away Craig!

I’m excited that my bookmobile is pulling into P. H. Solomon’s blog as part of the Story Empire Roadshow. It’s been a while since I appeared here, and in honor of this being a fantasy site, I’m putting my lone fantasy novel on sale today.

About The Book

The Cock of the South is a Greco-Roman fantasy with a mash up of traditional characters like Dwarves and Elves, alongside Centaurs and Amazons.

You’ll follow along with Cobby, one of the Southern Dwarves, as he discovers many downtrodden races. They’re all being persecuted by the empire of Remus, and he wants to unite them into one people for their own salvation.

The road is long, bloody, and filled with racial conflicts. I refer to it as part Exodus, part Spartacus, and pure fantasy.

Blurb

The Southern Dwarves are a conquered race. Scattered and hidden they must flee the legions of Remus before they all become slaves.

An unlikely dwarf, known as Cobby, leads them to a place where they can live in peace. He discovers other downtrodden races along the way and recruits them to his mission. These include centaurs, Amazons, satyrs, and more. There aren’t enough of anyone to make a difference, but together they might stand a chance.

There are quite a few dwarf stories around, and I wanted to do something different with them. The setting is Greco Roman, and the times are brutal. This book contains violence, you have been warned.

It was fun trying to keep what readers expect from dwarves, and still add something different. Part Spartacus, part Exodus, I hope you will give The Cock of the South a chance.

You can download The Cock of the South for the whopping big price of 99¢ today and tomorrow only. I hope you’ll take a chance on TCOS, and would appreciate any sharing PH’s readers could do today.

Story Empire is a cooperative effort of six outstanding authors, including today’s host. We’re all on tour this week, and PH is over at my blog, Entertaining Stories. Make sure to come over and see what great deals he’s offering along the tour.

To keep people following the tour, I’m giving away two huge coffee mugs featuring Lisa Burton, my personal assistant and spokesmodel. These go to the most prolific commenters during the week at my stops.
