THE TOWER is born, and THE HIEROPHANT is free!

ebook covers

Today is the day! The Tower is now available for Kindle! (Coming soon to other retailers, as well as paperback!) And guess what? If you haven’t had the chance to read The Hierophant yet, it’s available for FREE in the Kindle store from now until Saturday! :D

Let me go all-out-honest here, as I tend to do on this blog: I am absolutely in love with this book, as any proud book momma should be…but, I’m also terrified. Every book that gets published anywhere requires tremendous courage and faith to see it through to the end, but it turns out sequels come with their own special set of fears that would have otherwise never crossed my mind if this had been a stand-alone. The main one is: what if this is nothing like what the readers are expecting? Or worse: what if this is nothing like what the readers want?

But this is the story I’ve written, the story I love, and the story I hope the reader will love, too. It’s a story about a teenage girl who loves so fiercely. It’s a story about learning to trust your own instincts when exploring the fuzzy line between right and wrong. It’s a story about embracing your power–embracing every single part of who you are: the beautiful, the ugly, and everything between.

But ultimately, The Tower is a story about healing. And sometimes, the road to healing is just as dark and winding as the road that leads us to our wounds.

I hope you love it even half as much as I do. <3

As for the NEXT book in the Arcana Series, all I can say is this…

Kyla sure is awesome, huh?

We’re done! And this time there’s no waiting to find out what happens next because TODAY is The Tower‘s birthday! :D

RECAP: Chapters 64 – END (Book 1)

Chapter 64: It’s two months after Ana has been released from the hospital. She hasn’t heard from or seen Trebor at all, and she’s miserable without her magic–she never realized how big a part of her it was. But she takes a lesson from her father and tries to keep living.

Chapter 65: Ana takes a nap and when she wakes up there are texts from an unknown number on her phone (but it’s Trebor) asking her to meet at the orchard. Ana almost doesn’t go because she knows Trebor is only going to say goodbye, but at the last minute lets her heart decide and races out the door.

Chapter 66: Ana meets Trebor in the orchard and tells him how she feels–how she’s mad, and hurt, and refuses to say good bye–refuses to let Trebor promise her anything at all. But they love each other, and that has to be enough, for now.

AND NOW, a video! …is what I would have said if I’d had the time to film and edit one :( I’m sorry, I suck! There were a million and one last minute things I had to do for The Tower’s release and, well. Let’s just say that NEXT time I do a read-along, I will plan better (also space it out more! *passes out from exhaustion*)!

So that’s it for The Hierophant Read-Along! Thank you so much for reading with me and chatting with me about Book 1 in the Arcana Series as I prepared for the release of Book 2! Stay tuned for the official post on The Tower‘s release, and keep an eye out to see if you won anything! I’ll tweet at the winners tomorrow! <3
