See the HIDDEN DEEP book trailer!

Guess what?? HIDDEN DEEP has a book trailer! Okay, so maybe the post title gave the surprise away, but I’m so excited to show it to you. Making it took a looooong time, because I’m not the most techie person, but it was actually fun, and I kinda love the end result. One of my many day jobs is doing voiceover work for TV and radio ads and corporate videos, so I did my own voiceover here. I was going for *mysterious*. What do you think? Did I get it?

Here’s the YouTube link so you can check it out:

Teaser Tuesday!! HIDDEN DEEP- The beginning

 

Hi! It’s Teaser Tuesday, the very first one for HIDDEN DEEP. With less than a month to go before release day, I thought it’d be fun to “illustrate” the first two lines of the book. So here goes….

hallucination teaser

 

If you’ve read the book description or the opening pages, you know Ryann is a bit… underdressed when she sees Lad for the *second* time, as in skinny-dipping in a spring-fed pool on her grandma’s forest land. And then the fun begins!

If you’d like to pre-order HIDDEN DEEP from Amazon, you can click here.

It should be available on iTunes/ibooks and Barnes and Noble for pre-order very soon. And if you’d like to add it on Goodreads… here’s the link to do that. Plus, there’s still time to enter the Goodreads giveaway for a *paperback* version. The countdown is on till March 23!!

Hugs,

Amy

Cover reveal– HIDDEN DEEP

I’m so excited to share the cover of HIDDEN DEEP with you today. I’ve been dying to share it for a couple of months now, and finally THE DAY IS HERE!!!! This novel was my 2013 Golden Heart finalist book and a real passion project for me. I just love this story deeply, and the characters are so real to me and close to my heart.

HIDDEN DEEP is a Young Adult fantasy/paranormal romance and book 1 in a new trilogy. It’s slated to release on March 23, 2015.

Here’s a little insider info on the story:

Give in to the Glamour… 

Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she’d be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She’s a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping) and he’s not supposed to exist. After her father’s affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn’t mind a first date that didn’t suck, but she’s determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann’s recently moved back to her childhood home in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died. She’s still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He’s still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she’s with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann’s strict policy– never want someone more than he wants you.

Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don’t get careless and Don’t get caught. It’s allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore… Lad’s never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the rules. He’s not even supposed to talk to a human, much less fall in love with one. And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening, and mysterious celebrity fan pods are becoming more and more widespread and influential. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully unaware and safe.

AND NOW….

FINAL HIDDEN 1
I LOVE this cover so much, y’all! My designer at Cover your Dreams did an amazing job capturing the fantasy element and the mystery and the feels of the story– you will just have to see! I can’t wait for you all to read it!!

Pre-order on Amazon

Add HIDDEN DEEP on Goodreads:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24686734-hidden-deep–book-1-of-the-hidden-trilogy

In the coming weeks, I’ll have some fun teasers for you and some background on the cover design process. Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me. Until next time…

Hugs,

Amy

Something a little different…

I spent 2014 writing and publishing the 20 Something series, and there’s still (at least) one more book to come, STILL WAITING. But it’s going to have to wait a little while longer. :)

Because my next novel out for publication is the first book in a different series, and not only that, it’s in a different genre!

HIDDEN DEEP is a YA Fantasy/Paranormal romance and the first book in a trilogy. I actually wrote it before writing the 20 Something books, but I put it aside to work on them, and late last year picked it up again and began the editing process with it.

I truly love this book. It was the one that made me a Golden Heart finalist in 2013, and it’s set in a fictional version of my little Mississippi hometown. But that’s where the ties to reality end.

Here’s what the story’s about:

Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she’d be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She’s a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping) and he’s not supposed to exist.

After her father’s affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn’t mind a first date that didn’t suck, but she’s determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann’s recently moved back to her childhood home in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died.

She’s still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He’s still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she’s with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann’s strict policy– never want someone more than he wants you.

Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don’t get careless and Don’t get caught. It’s allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore…

Lad’s never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the Here’rules. He’s not even supposed to talk to a human, much less fall in love with one.

And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening, and mysterious celebrity fan pods are becoming more and more widespread and influential. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully unaware and safe.

The release date for HIDDEN DEEP is March 23rd.

I’m excited that I get to reveal the cover on Monday, Feb. 9th!!!!!! And if you’d like, you can help. If you have a blog- great. If not- no problem! I’d love for you to post the cover on your Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, side of your house, face-paint it–wherever you want!

Here’s a link to sign up to be a part of the cover reveal:
