GIVEAWAY & 5 Facts to the Cover Reveal for 1 of My Highly Anticipated YA Novel

Yes, you heard that right!  The cover reveal for a new Young Adult (freebie fact) novel here on my blog!!!

I know! Total excitement! I've been waiting for her new book since. . .

OK. Maybe not that long, but at least since her last series, which also happens to be one of my favorites! Who is this author?  Well, here are the 5 facts:

FACT #1: Author
Nadine Brandes is her name.

About Nadine
Nadine learned to write her alphabet with a fountain pen. In Kindergarten. Cool, huh? Maybe that’s what started her love for writing. She started journaling at age nine and thus began her habit of communicating via pen and paper more than spoken words. She never decided to become a writer. Her brain simply classified it as a necessity to life.

Nadine is a stay-at-home author and writes stories about authentic faith, bold living, and worlds soaked in imagination. She lives in Idaho with her husband and works as a freelance editor. When she's not writing, editing, or taste-testing a new chai, she is out pursuing adventures.

She is the author of the Out of Time series.

About the Book

Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s plot to assassinate the king of England.

Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death.

But what if death finds him first?

Keepers think the Igniters caused the plague. Igniters think the Keepers did it. But all Thomas knows is that the Stone Plague infecting his eye is spreading. And if he doesn’t do something soon, he’ll be a lifeless statue. So when his Keeper father, Guy Fawkes, invites him to join the Gunpowder Plot—claiming it will put an end to the plague—Thomas is in.

The plan: use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Igniter King James.

The problem: Doing so will destroy the family of the girl Thomas loves. But backing out of the plot will send his father and the other plotters to the gallows. To save one, Thomas will lose the other.

No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.

Doesn't it sound amazing??!!

  1. Love the cover! FAWKES sounds like a great read.

  2. Sounds interesting but just not my favorite genre.

    1. No worries there. I started reading genres I thought I didn't like, but when good writing makes it good, the genre doesn't matter as much! You can try Nadine's Out of Time series first. It's really good.
