As many of you know, REVELATIONS (ELYSIUM CHRONICLES book 2) release November 5th and I’d like to know where YOU want me to go for signings. So please fill out the form below and tell me. If I get enough responses for a particular city/state, then I’ll come to visit you. So, if you really, want me to come to your area, make sure to send all your friends to sign the form! 🙂 As soon as I have a list of places I’ll be going for my release “tour,” I’ll post it.
Because I absolutely adore fan art and I want to see what my awesome fans see when they think of Elysium and Evie and Gavin, not to mention the Enforcers and Mother, I’m putting out a call for fan art! I want it all: hand drawn (on anything from napkins to canvas), computer/digital manipulation, paint, sketches, modern, comic book styling. It doesn’t just have to be “art” either. I’d love to see fan trailers, jewelry, songs, etc. Wherever your imagination takes you, do it (then send it to me.)! (Don’t go crazy insane though people. Make sure they’re work place and teen safe. PG-13. If you’re not sure, feel free to send them to me and I’ll let you know.)
I’ll post them on the “fan art” page on my website (with credit to you, of course.) And I’ll feature some of my favorites on my blog in their own post.
To sweeten the pot, I’m giving away a sweet prize to the top three winners. The grand prize winner will win an ARC of REVELATIONS (when available), the 2nd and 3rd place winners will win a gift card to Amazon/Barnes & Noble.
This contest is open internationally. Contest ends April 5th.
To enter, email me with your entry (please make sure to send your fan art (or a picture of it) whatever it is with the email or it doesn’t count to: j.souders(at) jasouders (dot) com
And, as an FYI, if you’ve read and reviewed RENEGADE get those links ready. I’ll be hosting a reviewer appreciation giveaway soon. There is a lovely prize associated with it that I’ve had commissioned just for this occasion and I can’t wait for you guys to see it. I just want to get it in my hands before I announce what it is.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who entered, shared, and/or otherwise made my latest cover reveal a success! A huge thanks especially to the bloggers who managed to fit me in at the last minute. I couldn’t have done it without you, so THANK YOU!!
Also, I have huge amounts of gratitude to the three people who gave me the most beautiful cover EVER! My editor for helping figure out what I wanted to see on the cover, Sean the art director at Tor for taking my horrible notes of what I wanted and making sure it came to reality and knowing exactly how to make my covers stand out and POP, and to the cover artist herself, Eithne OHanlon, for somehow being a mind-reader and giving me the most gorgeous cover ever. No words can express how thankful I am for your awesomeness.
In case you missed the awesome cover or if you’re like me and just want to stare and drool at it some more, I’m posting it below.
Isn’t it “just about perfect”? Just like the first cover, there’s so much going on here beyond just what we see and I can’t wait for people to read it to see what’s there. But I LOVE that it’s not the fairytale-ish look that the first cover had. That it shows what Evie went through in the first book and it’s dirty, and gritty. That she’s peaceful, for now, but the storm clouds are rolling in. It’s just…perfect. I couldn’t be happier with this cover.
What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
And now onto the part you’ve all been waiting on. The winner of the cover reveal contest! They can be found in the rafflecopter widget below. Congrats to you! Please email me at j.souders (at) jasouders (dot) com with your address and to let me know if you want your signed copy of RENEGADE personalized.
Hi wonderful people! I hope everyone has had a chance to see the lovely new cover for REVELATIONS! If you haven’t, make sure to check out this post. There’s a list of blogs on that page that hosted my cover reveal and all of them have the rafflecopter widget to enter to win a bunch of signed books INCLUDING the ARC to REVELATIONS when it comes out.
I’m superexcited to announce that the Sunshine Tour is coming to Orlando and Tampa/Clearwater. But WAIT! if you aren’t in Florida or near these areas, keep reading, I promise it’ll be worth it.
To tempt you all to come on out on what promises to be a really pretty weekend, I’m offering a bunch of goodies that you can only get at the signings. Among some special SWAG, I’ll be giving away signed posters of the new REVELATIONS’ cover and RENEGADE’s cover and free e-copies of A DARK GRAVE (that will work on all e-readers). Also, possibly a sneak peak at the next Elysium Chronicles short story.
And if you can’t come, there’s still an option to get signed copies of all the books from the authors on the tour. All you have to do is go here and fill out the form. More details at that link.
I’m so excited to be on this tour and I can’t wait to see you at the stops!
I can’t believe that today’s the day! It’s so so surreal that I’m not focusing on RENEGADE any more. This time last year, I was worrying over how Renegade would do. Now it’s REVELATIONS’ turn. Wow. Just wow.
Anyway, you want to see the cover not hear me complain about how fast time goes by. LOL.
I’ve been lucky enough to have a TON of extremely awesome bloggers help me with this cover reveal. And I owe them a HUGE debt of gratitude, especially Jaime Arnold from Two Chicks on Books. Thank you, Jaime! <3 <3 And all the other bloggers who are listed below, for being as awesome as they come. 🙂
Also, there’s a contest! It’s pretty easy. 🙂
