I have released the kraken, folks! (C’mon, you knew that was going to be in there somewhere 😉 )
So, my book cover designer came through in a big way, and I love the cover design!
The Kraken’s Mate is now live on Amazon, and I am so excited (and exhausted!). I hope you guys check it out, and that you love it as much as I loved writing it.
I played with a bunch of different versions of the blurb, including a truly awesome one that fellow author Tamsin Ley whipped up for me like magic, and I will probably share them in the next week or so, but this is the one I decided to go with for the Amazon description for the moment, as I wanted to keep it simple:
The sequel to The Scorpion’s Mate
A desperate escape from a prison cell inside an alien research facility leaves Joanie in the clutches of an alien with a handsome face, a great body, and tentacles that could have come out of a horror movie. Her life back on Earth is a mess, but nowhere near as complicated as her new situation becomes when the alien test subject named Nemon decides that she’s his mate.
Nemon knows that Joanie is the mate he’s hoping for as soon as Thrax hands her to him, but he can also see that she’s frightened and traumatized. He must win a battle against his own body—which has a mind of its own—to maintain control so he can win her trust and avoid frightening her further. His newfound friends warn him that Joanie will need time to accept him, and Nemon is willing to wait, but they all may have underestimated Joanie.
They have escaped their fate as Iriduan test subjects, but Nemon and Joanie can’t escape the legacy left behind by their captors. A legacy that brings them together—a legacy that also threatens to tear them apart.
