SWORD - Cover!

I hope you guys enjoyed the cover reveal last week! In case you missed it, here it is:




I wanted this cover to be super red with fire. Once you read SWORD, you'll understand why. We often see this pose--a very classic and icon pose of hero taking his destiny--on a male character (Arthur or knights) and it's cool for me to see Morgan le Fay as the hero.

The sale for HENGE ends tomorrow, so please be sure to grab a copy!

News Week - 08/10/15

Cover reveal for SWORD is scheduled for 08/19 on Candace's blog! Contact her if you'd like to be a part of the reveal! I've got one more week left until I turn in SWORD to my copyeditor. I've also received my first round of revision notes for my picture book from my dev editor!

Have I done anything besides work this summer? Why yes!

I watched the Blue Angels:


My husband and I have been going on picnic dates when the symphony is playing in one of our local parks:



I went to my second Hal Sparks show. He is hilarious and I love his standup. Go see him live! I also got a photo with him.


Seattle Asian Art Museum has a calligraphy exhibit. I love calligraphy! I'll be doing some calligraphy art for one of my projects soon and this definitely inspired me.


Celebrated the rare blue moon with Blue Moon beer and Blue Moon burger. Most excellent Friday thing to do. 


Our local theater did a limited run of When Marnie Was There. I recommend the movie. It had good honest storytelling and featured a great bond between two characters. I love seeing movies that aren't overly commercialized.



I hope you are enjoying summer as well! Stay tuned for next week!

SWORD - Back Cover Copy

Hello, everyone! Here's the back cover text for SWORD, the 2nd book in the Le Fay Series. It will be out this fall. I hope you're as excited as I am! 





Evil lurks. Camelot sits, vulnerable. The fate of a future king hangs in the balance.

After surviving a string of brutal trials, sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is an official member of Camelot. But beneath its shining fa├žade, Camelot is a crumbling government where loyalties are divided.

Nobody believes Morgan’s suspicions that enemies are closing in. Prince Arthur, a boy more interested in playing video games than ruling, will not listen to her, and neither will Lancelot, Camelot’s head of security. Even Morgan's friend Merlin refuses to take action.

When Morgan discovers that someone is plotting to assassinate the future king, she must take her destiny—and his—into her own hands. With the sword Excalibur beckoning in the distance, Morgan embarks on a seemingly impossible mission. And before her journey ends, everyone will know what she is truly capable of . . .

In this second book in the LE FAY series, author Realm Lovejoy takes readers deep into the heart of a splintering Camelot.
