Release Day: IGNITED, A Donovan Circus Novel (#4)

Happy Halloween week, my lovelies! I hope you’re amped for a fun weekend full of costumes, candy, and in my case, booze. 😉 What are you guys dressing as? I’ve got my peacock costume and I’m ready to shake some tail feathers!

Now, on to the other stuff. I’ll make this short and sweet:

So. It’s here. The release day for IGNITED, Book 4 in the Donovan Circus Series.

Also, the nausea. Man, this book release thing never gets easier, does it?!

I’m over the moon for the responses so far and can’t wait to hear what you think of the newest adventure. It’s truly a labor of love (the longest book in the series – making up for that shorter third book with the major death!) and close to my heart. I think you’ll get exactly what I mean when you finish it. It’s not the last book in the series, but certainly makes everything come full circle. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Have a great week, friends. With you at my back, I know I will!

“Maybe I had to accept that the Donovan Circus no longer felt like home.”

Lucy might’ve beaten Alex the Chameleon, but the cost of his defeat was too much to bear. After losing a beloved member, Sheffield Donovan temporarily disbands the show. Abandoned by the ringmaster and her friends, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of their ruined circus – and defend it against those waiting for the opportunity to strike.

During one of these attempts, Lucy learns of Augustus Rivers, the leader of his so-called gifted mafia. When Lucy is offered a chance to infiltrate the Rivers’ household, she jumps at the opportunity to seek vengeance on the mastermind. Augustus instead surprises everyone by proposing that the powerful female Firestarter work for him. It’s everything the Donovan Circus isn’t, an offer Lucy finds more enticing than she ever expected.

With the Donovan Circus in shambles and the gifted world on the cusp of war, can Lucy Sullivan figure out who she’s meant to be? Or will her fire destroy everything they’ve built?

Cover Reveal: IGNITED, Book 4 of Donovan Circus Series

I’m super excited to showcase the newest Donovan Circus cover today. Designed by Kelly Walker of Indie-Spired Design, and I gotta say, the girl’s a genius. I had two requests on the cover: 1) that Lucy be standing with both arms up (yes, sort of in a “come at me bro” position) and 2) that the colors be red and orange, both indicative of the book title as well as fitting into our color themes in the series. Here’s what she came up with!

IgnitedCoverWeb

Gorgeous, right?! We’ve used the same model on all the covers, but this one has such a different feel to it, I think due to the coloring (Kelly went in and did all those colors and smoke herself). If you read the back cover blurb, you know Lucy is venturing outside the Donovan Circus grounds, this time to a fancy plantation with gourmet chef, poster bed, extra perks, and of course, the mafia boss attempting to win her over. Will he succeed?

And in case you’d like to see the full paperback wrap, complete with cover blurb, here it is in all its glory and splendor:

I hope you love it as much as I do! IGNITED will release on Amazon for Kindle and paperback on October 29th. (To get started on the series, check out GIFTED for only 99 cents on Kindle here!)

IGNITED Back Cover Synopsis

As I move forward with publishing IGNITED, Book 4 in the Donovan Circus Series, I get more excited by the day. (Also, a little more pukey because this never gets easier, but that’s beside the point.) In case you haven’t heard on my Facebook page or Twitter, we’re already finishing up the cover and I know I’m biased, but it’s gorgeous. For serious.

IGNITED will be released on October 29th. The cover reveal will be on September 24th, so stay tuned because it’s not that far away. (Are you a book blogger and want to see it first by participating in the reveal tour? Sign up here!) In the meantime, I wanted to share the back cover blurb that will give you a little look at what’s to come.

My Release Day: HUNTED, A DONOVAN CIRCUS NOVEL (#3)

HuntedFBCover

I’m so excited to have you be a part of my release day for HUNTED, Book 3 of the Donovan Circus Series! Sometimes it feels like I just released the first book, GIFTED, a few days ago; other times, it feels like more years than it’s actually been! 🙂 Thank you to the amazing bloggers, authors, and readers who have helped make this such an awesome release day. Also a special thanks to my cover designer, Kate at Dwell Design & Press for her amazing cover work! I hope you all find the third adventure as exciting as the first two – and perhaps much darker, as there are many underlying things bubbling to the surface, secrets coming unveiled, and a death that will shake the troupe in a terrible way. HUNTEDCoverSm

Back Cover Synopsis: Lucy Sullivan finally belongs with the gifted Donovan Circus. Members are finding their rhythm, even the new folks from the Grayson Circus who joined after the last attack. Lucy feels like a trusted leader who can win the gifted battles and prevent humans from discovering their existence.

When tragedy strikes camp, a distraught Sheffield sends Lucy and her gifted team to hunt down the enemy – Alex, a Chameleon with a wicked ability for war. He’s out for blood and won’t stop until Lucy and her friends are dead.

This time, it won’t be Lucy’s gift that is tested – it will be her morality. To save her circus, the price will be greater than she ever expected. This time, she will lose someone she loves. And it will change everything.
