The Onyx Talisman Cover Reveal

Drum roll..... tada! Squee!!! Thank you to all the bloggers who are posting this today!

The release date is: 11/16/11

Well, it's hard to see here, but the talisman is so faint on the cover... which... might.... reveal.... something. *cough*

So, without further ado, here's a little something to wet your appetite. If you haven't read the first two books, DON'T KEEP READING! Just pick up the first book for $0.99 on Kindle or Nook

All was perfect in Julia’s life until Nicholas had his vampire blood-lust activated by his mother Alora, her immortal enemy, turning him evil and bent on revenge. Heartbroken and out of choices, Phil and Julia ran away in the middle of the night, with Scarlett on foot, to Orange County to warn and plead Nicholas’ Godfather for help. Once arriving at Harry’s though, the local coven accosted them and they narrowly escaped.

After they returned home, there was a huge showdown between Phil, Nicholas, Scarlett, Alora, Katie and Julia. Alora almost got what she wanted—Julia’s vampire warding talisman—but Preston, Nicholas’ father, and Harry came to the rescue. They escorted Nicholas and Alora back to Beverly Hills, pledging to return Nicholas free from his blood-lust. But all Julia’s received in the past four months is a letter stating Nicholas missed her along with some song lyrics and promise of a quick return. That was a month ago.

Now Julia awaits Nicholas’ return with the Fab Five Coven: Phil and Katie—the sober vampires, Scarlett—the half-vamp/shape-shifter, and Tyler and Julia—the inducted humans. She’s stuck in Scotts Valley with Phil as her self-appointed chaperon and no way to return to Los Angeles to check on Nicholas. Only Scarlett and Julia know her fate ultimately involves the demise of all vampires, possibly including the ones she loves. When the time comes, will she even have a choice?

Trip Around the World Mega Author Blog Hop

Welcome to Santa Cruz, California for this stop in the Trip Around the World Blog Hop. I assume you've just came from The Emerald Isle with Heather McAlendin, which is quite ironic since the book I'm offering for the giveaway is called The Emerald Talisman.

So now it's time to shed your coat from Ireland, take off your shoes and walk up the beach or enjoy some funnel cake at the Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk...oh...and bring a good book... how about one centered in Santa Cruz?

For those who are fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blade and Twilight, The Emerald Talisman is right up your alley. And if you don't win it here, it's only $0.99 on Kindle/Nook right now!

When Julia Parker, a sixteen-year-old with the paranormal ability to read people's emotions, accidentally falls prey to a vampire, she becomes aware that sometimes animals and people aren't who they seem. To survive, she must rely on her psychic abilities to help her decide who to trust and who to love.
