Celebrations!

Okay, so sometimes I feel like a Debbie Downer here on the blog. So today I'm going to be sharing some celebrations. Not necessarily my own, but for some things I've seen recently that I love, and that deserve to be celebrated.

1. CREWEL cover release! Oh my heck, you guys. Did you see it?



I simply cannot wait to read this book. I think the color and the spinny-ness of it are gorgeous. Plus, I know how exciting it is to see your cover out there, so yay to Genn! Celebrate with her!

2. PERCEPTION releases. Dude, you guys. If you haven't started this series yet, you should. I loved CLARITY with every fiber of my being, and I called the bookstore where Kim was signing so I could get a signed copy of this second book.

Rating: Elana Highly Recommends.

Plus, I'm almost to the point of my sequel releasing, and the excitement for such a thing is very palpable. So woot woot to Kim and PERCEPTION! (You can show your enthusiasm by buying the book...)

3. LACRIMOSA officially comes out tomorrow! Yeah, it's been "out" for about a week or so now, but the official release date is tomorrow.

I loved this book, and I think if you like paranormal stories, you will too. Christine has worked for a long time to see this book in print, so yay to her! Tell her a big congrats -- and you can get the book for only $5 for your Kindle or Nook.

Money well-spent people. Money well-spent.

OR you can leave a comment here and you might win a copy! That's right, people! In celebration of the release, I'm giving away an e-copy of LACRIMOSA as well as the prequel DIES IRAE. Just leave a comment.

Anything to celebrate today? Lay it on me. Let's make this Monday awesome!

The cover for Crewel is STUNNING. I've visited it a couple times this weekend, just to drool.

CLARITY is on my list of books to get this summer. And LACRIMOSA looks awesome! Very intriguing cover.

There are so many awesome books out or soon to be released! It's a great time to be a reader or a writer!!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Love Jen's cover. And I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Perception. It's my next book to read.

So excited for Christine.

Brittany said...

All 3 of these covers are gorgeous! Unfortunately, I still haven't read Clarity yet :(

Jen Daiker said...

LOVE THEM ALL! The first one takes my breath away. Amazing colors! Thanks for sharing the fabulousness this morning!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Clarity is on my TBR list, but I'm waiting for the series to be over before I buy the book (okay, it's mostly because I want to finish my TBR pile before I buy anymore books).

I'm looking forward to Lacrimosa. I'm not waiting quite so long to read the book. I just need to get through a few more books in my pile first. :D

Tasha Seegmiller said...

Love pretty colors and celebrations. Nice that people through the web circulate through the ups and downs pretty well. Much better than I all being down at the same time :)

Tasha Seegmiller said...

*us all. Hello Monday.

Christine Fonseca said...

I just love that cover for Crewel. LOVE IT!! And Love all the good news circulating around the web today. WOOT

Kelly Hashway said...

Love the cover of Crewel!! Oh, and I just read and ARC of Lacrimosa and it's awesome.

ilima said...

Pick me! Pick me!

My celebration: I just got back from a long weekend retreat with my CP's and had a blast. I love those girls and miss them already!

Vivien said...

I love the cover! I also really need to go out and get Perception. Clarity was brilliant!

The cover of the first one is gorgeous.

Angela Brown said...

Celebrating life everyday, the joy of waking up and seeing a new day and new opportunities to chase down, wrangle and make my own.

Loved both Dies Irae and Lacrimosa. So excited for Christine!!!

And excitement is building as your sequel release date approaches as well :-)

Matthew MacNish said...

I have no idea what Crewel means, but that cover is gorgeous!

Anna Smith said...

That's a pretty cool cover. Putting all these on my tbr list, aka my kindle wishlist! They sound great :)

Kay said...

It's from last week, but I'm still celebrating the fact that my 130 8th graders have read over 2800 books so far this year!

All the covers look awesome!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Oh! Oh! Pick me, pick me!!! I WANT those e-copies! *um, please* :-)

LOVE the cover of CREWEL--gorgeous!

cleemckenzie said...

Wow! Some covers you've shared! Congratulations on the books. Seems like you do more than drive fast, you write that way, too! :-)

Susan R. Mills said...

I'm not sure which cover is better!!! They are all amazing. And what great things to celebrate!

i'm erin. said...

I love the covers! But I have to say that I loved LOVED loved Clarity. I'm so excited for Perception to come out. I was kind of a huge vernoica mars fan, and that book totally reminded me of it.

Carolyn V said...

Wow! They all look so great! I'm celebrating running and chocolate (I know they don't go together, but hey, a girl's gotta live). ;)

Alice said...

All those books look great.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Colorful artwork!

Vivian said...

I'm looking forward to reading them all. Thanks for the chance to win Lacrimosa and Dies Irae.

Colene Murphy said...

Wowowow! Some great books coming, it looks like! Will definitely check those out! (Hadn't read Clarity yet, but might have to bump it up on the list after that recommendation!)

Leigh Covington said...

Fabulous! Absolutely beautiful covers. I love finding a fabulous book with a great cover. Is that weird?

Donna K. Weaver said...

Those are some awesome covers. So many new books coming out!

Jennie Bailey said...

The CREWEL cover is GORGEOUS!!! But I really, really have a thing for your Surrender cover. I'm obsessed with it! Hoping to have my own celebrating here soon...or we'll just be celebrating the failure :-).

Jennifer Hoffine said...

All cool covers! Will have to look into these!

Claire Hennessy said...

They all look great (particuarly love the cover of Crewel). Gosh, too many books, so little time!

Emily R. King said...

I could stare at these covers all day long. Purty!

Kate said...

Love the Crewel cover, but that Lacrimosa cover makes me ask so many questions.

Jenny S. Morris said...

Crewel's cover is just beautiful. All these books look fabulous.

Kelly Polark said...

That cover is vibrant!
And I want some glittery lipstick like on the Lacrimosa cover!
I'm just celebrating that it has been summer weather in the end of the Midwest winter. Everyone is in a better mood it seems!

Riv Re said...

Obsessed with the Crewel cover!
My Monday was actually one of the better ones I've had in a while: (1) Slept an extra two hours, because my school gave us a late morning today (2) walked home in gorgeous weather (3) got 104 on a history test!!!
That's me ;)

Jemi Fraser said...

So many great books - so many gorgeous covers! Definitely lots to celebrate :)

The Golden Eagle said...

The cover for Crewel is amazing!

Lisa said...

All of the books look great! More for my TBR list.

Amy Jane (Untangling Tales) said...

Commenting commenting! (Love new books!)

Latest celebration? A character meld (Shh! I haven't told anybody IRL) two are now one, requiring gender, age & perception/reaction shifts, but I'm crazy-excited about it and looking forward to noveling time every night!

Misha Gericke said...

Oooh I'd love to win a copy of Lacrimosa. Been reading about it a lot and it sounds really good.

:-)

Heather said...

So many beautiful books, and it's fantastic to see Lacrimosa among them! I'm so happy for Christine.

Julie Daines said...

I already won Dies Irae from you, so it would make sense that I win the sequel. I'm just saying...

Theresa Milstein said...

Gorgeous covers--especially that first one. I'm excited for Christina!

Amber Argyle, author said...

Look at all the pretties!

L.T. Elliot said...

Holy gorgeous covers, all! Wow! How fun! And I remember you talking about clarity! I'm excited to see the follow-up!
