I am so unbelievably excited about this book. Most of you probably don’t know this, but Losing It was actually the first contemporary book I’d ever written. All of my manuscripts prior to that had had some element of fantasy or the supernatural. I wrote Losing It because I’d needed a break from my current project, and… well, the rest is history. It’s been a wild ride, and I certainly have no intentions to stop writing my New Adult contemporary romances, but I am eager to add a little magic back into my writing life.
I know you guys are really just here to see the cover, so I’ll cut straight to the point, and we’ll talk after… kay? Kay.
First up, here’s the book summary for book one in my two book NA Paranormal series.
INSPIRE by Cora Carmack
Coming December 15th, 2014
Kalliope lives with one purpose.
As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.
Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.
Her presence may inspire genius.
But it breeds madness, too.
EEEEEEP!!! Look at that gorgeous cover made by VLC productions! I’m in love with the girl and the font and the fact that they’re holding up the title! I just love everything about it. And I think it fits the tone of the book so well! This book still has plenty of my normal witty and flirty dialogue, but it also takes a much darker turn naturally. I wanted to talk about the dark and light side to creativity and the dark and light side of beauty. And I think this cover captures that perfectly.
I am SO friggin’ excited for this book, you guys. Like you don’t even know. You can already add it on Goodreads!
Or you can pre-order now exclusively through iBooks! http://bit.do/inspireCC. It will be available across all online retailers on release day.
I can’t really put into words how much I care about this book. I’ve been lucky the past few years to be able to chase my dreams, and this is the next big dream for me. Most of the books that have shaped me as a person are fantasy. Most of the authors I idolize write fantasy. It’s those kinds of stories that first kindled my love for writing, and I’m so eager to finally be able to share this side of myself with you all.
I am so very grateful for your support and excitement. It means more to me than you can possibly know. And please, consider sharing this blog post with any friends you think might be interested in INSPIRE.
And now… because you’re awesome (and I love love love you), here is the VERY FIRST sneak peek of Wilder and Kalli:
(P.S. This is totally unedited. So, any mistakes are all on me).
Well! There’s your first look at INSPIRE. Make sure you add the book on Goodreads, and mark your calendars for Dec. 15th! And I’ll hopefully have some pre-order news for you soon!
