New Covers!

I'm so excited!
I have new covers for both Marked: A Two Halves Novella and Two Halves. Thank you, thank you, thank you Robin at Robin Ludwig Design Inc. for such wonderful covers! You're a gem to work with.

Here they are, along with some new blurbs!

 
Shapeshifter Xander will remain stuck in oblivion between good and evil until he is marked—either with the sphere that will identify him as a servant of the underworld or with the water mark, working for the keepers of humans, vampires, and warlocks.
 
One decision will mark him and his twin sister Mira equally. She is in love with a man bearing the water mark and wants Xander to follow the path of the good. But Xander loves a black witch, a minion of the underworld. All he has to do to join her forever is kill.

After all, there's something good about being bad.




Sarah killed her human mother shortly after she was born so she could quench her thirst. She hates her vampire father who she never met and blames him for her mother’s death.
 
Now twenty-one, Sarah suppresses her dark side with serums. When a nightmare stirs her dark traits, underworld creatures hunt for the half-breed vampire. On the run, Sarah learns the secrets hidden from her, for a good reason. Had she known her destiny, she may have continued with the serums that kept her safe in the human world.





The covers have already been uploaded to most sites. I'm still working through them and it will take a while for some to be done through all the distribution channels, including print.

I've also set the price of Marked, the first book in the series for free. I'm hoping to keep it at that for a while and for Amazon to price match it from other sites (though it may take months. I'd heard they're not so keen on price matching to free these days because of KDP Select, which would really suck.) 

The idea is to draw readers in with the first book into the series. We'll see how it goes. In the meantime, you're more than welcome to get a free copy from Smashwords and download in the format you like including for the Kindle.

I also have a third cover ready for Two Equals, but I'm still trying to work out how I'd like to go about revealing that one.

What do you guys think?

Both, especially the first one, are eye-catching.

They are striking.

I recently read Marked so that story is fresh in my mind, and I think the new cover really suits it.

The covers look good--ready for the shelves of my local book store--if I still had a local book store.
