As many of you know, I’m rewriting Rose of Prophecy. This new Beauty and the Beast retelling is Rose of the Oath and I am excited to be able to share a blurb and the cover with you, as well as an exciting schedule and some signups.
They were coming. They never stopped coming.
A wolf howled, the call rising to an eerie pitch before dropping, hurtling downward. The echo barely faded when another howl replied. Always… Always, forever, and yet again, they would come.
His breath slipped between his teeth and he finally lifted his gaze from the crimson rose as the wind hurtled off, whistling through the narrow pass that led outward. Out into the forest. Out into Aslaria.
And so he waited.
Meanwhile, war clouds the horizon and rebels gather under a mysterious leader. Alone, with her two younger sisters, Elissa watches the mountain road desperately for her brother’s return. Instead, she receives news of his capture by a strange figure covered in scars and cloaked in wolf skins.
With rebels drawing nearer, she sets off to find her brother. To save him. There is no one else who can.
Yet she soon finds the rose that granted her warning now holds her captive in safety. Outside the valley, war threatens those she loves most. Though her strange host claims the ancient promises of the Prince’s return and victory over the rebels, Elissa knows the blood-drenched truth. She is on her own. Elissa will do anything to keep her family safe, but more than one kind of wolf stalks the Blackwood and danger lurks closer than she could ever imagine.
Rose of the Oath will be published June 22nd. Technically it will be published before that, because I need to publish it and then price match it down to free. But June 22-24th is when I’m going to have a blog explosion, which will amount to a condensed blog tour containing reviews, quotes (maybe) and a link to get the novella for free.
For those of you who would like an early copy to review Rose of the Oath, that will be sent out at the end of May. You will have nearly a month to read the novella and then review it on Goodreads, Amazon, and/or your blog as I launch the book.
You can sign up for one or both of these things (review reading and blog explosion) below!
