WISH, The Awakening by Laura Eno

I'm so pleased to be part of Laura Eno's latest book release. Just look at this gorgeous cover!


And now I'll let Laura tell you about her new book.

Wish, The Awakening – YA dark fantasy

Blurb
Most residents of Pine Hill shy away from seventeen-year-old Lelah without knowing why. It's the Djinn magic surging through her blood. She lives in a world where wishes are really curses, dark power meant to twist and deceive in unimaginable ways.
When a fit of temper exposes Lelah for what she really is, she must flee to a sanctuary only whispered about, before her family is exposed and enslaved by their ancient enemy. What she discovers is a treacherous path filled with power, lies, and betrayal – a path that's destined to ensnare her and destroy a civilization.

About the Author
Laura Eno lives in Florida with a very tolerant husband, three skulking cats and two absurdly happy dogs. After spending years immersed in college but never figuring out what she wanted to be when she grew up, she now writes novels late at night with the help of muses from the underworld. And, no, she still hasn't grown up but that's okay.


So now that you've seen the cover and read the blurb ... what are you waiting for? Click on one of the links and immerse yourself in Lelah's story.

Have a wonderful and productive week. I'm wishing this for you and for me - especially the productive part. Last week came with a lot of interruptions, and I started falling a little behind.

And stop in at Linda Kage's blog to learn which one of the events she listed on Friday happened to me. Did anyone guess? And thanks for visiting over there, too :)

See you Friday!

Thank you for sharing "Wish" on your blog today!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Very excited for Laura and already have my copy!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Love the cover! Cool concept. :D

I'm hoping for the same level of productivity this week that I had last week. Not sure, though, if it will happen.

The cover is absolutely gorgeous.

Now, what I like about the time she spent on getting the right cover, is the fact if you lined them up with traditionally published books, you'd have no idea that she has self published this book.

And that's what you want. Cover art that draws the reader to look twice, look long enough to read the blurb and buy.

Kudos to Laura for her professional approach to her writing by realizing cover art is a strong marketing tool.

That is a beautiful cover. Love that necklace or charm or whatever it is on the left. Good blurb for a dark fantasy, too. :)

Stephen Tremp said...

Good luck to Laura. I read Prophecy Moon earlier this year. Good luck with The Awakening.

Laura - My pleasure. I love your writing because you take me beyond my own imagination :)

That is a gorgeous cover, and the story sounds great!

J.L. Campbell said...

That's a very nice cover. That's one intense character. The mist hints at mystery and danger.

I see Laura has never grown up. IMO, that's a great place to be.

DEZMOND said...

congrats to lady Eno, the whole blogorealm is covered with her book today :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Rula - My thoughts exactly!

J.L. - I can't wait to find out :)

Dezmond - It's a good thing :)

Linda Kage said...

Wish sounds like a good one!! I also love the author's bio! I wish I could come up with such an engaging bio!

The only guess anyone had was that you were in the Miss Cosmopolitan beauty pageant your senior year of high school! But I think they all still had fun wondering!

Michelle said...

Yay! Huge congrats to Laura!
Xx

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda K - LOL! I am so not the beauty pageant type. I'm so glad you did this, though. It was fun!

Michelle - From me, too :)
