WITCH HEARTS: A Second Promo Photo + Cover Reveal Date

My official cover reveal date for WITCH HEARTS is in ONE WEEK: Monday, April 8th!! I can’t wait to show it off and I’ve been overwhelmed by the supportive response I’ve gotten from bloggers and authors volunteering to help release it on their blogs. I’m so excited for next week, but until then I wanted to tide you over with another photo. (I’ll also be releasing a third photo after the cover reveal – you know, to get you in the mood.)

A couple weeks back, I released the official back cover synopsis for WITCH HEARTS, along with a promo photo to give you a better idea of what to expect from the book. Today I wanted to give you another shot that pairs with what you’ll read in the novel.

WITCH HEARTS features a powerful witch named Ruby who is stalked by a serial killer. She must do everything in her power to save herself, practicing to her altar – both in her home and in the woods – in order to stay safe. A lot of the story takes place in a special spot in the woods and I tried to recreate what Ruby would have there (to the best of the supplies in my house, that is!).

Wiccans often practice in nature, as they find it comforting and the easiest way to feel at one with their religion. In my witchy world, Ruby practices with candles, her spellbook, an athame, small cauldron (it’s a little dark but that bowl behind the candles), and sometimes her tarot cards. But will all her practicing keep her alive?

Official Synopsis and Sneak Peek: “Witch Hearts”

Ladies and gentlemen, very soon I will be releasing my second novel, an adult paranormal thriller titled Witch Hearts. Today I want to share with you the official back cover synopsis, as well as a photo my cover artist and I designed for the book. If you love shows such as “Criminal Minds” or movies like “Kiss the Girls”, I think you’d enjoy the read! (One of my beta readers says: “It’s like a longer episode of Criminal Minds but with witches and ghosts!”)

Witch Hearts by Liz Long, Spring 2013

How does a witch stay safe if a killer can get through her protection spells?

Witches like Ruby and Courtney can take care of themselves. So when Courtney is murdered, Ruby’s world crashes to a halt. The only thing keeping her grounded is the return of Courtney’s brother, Cooper. He seeks revenge, but Ruby wants to help other witches stay alive. To do that, she’ll have to reunite with her old coven’s High Priest, who also happens to be her cheating ex-boyfriend.

If that wasn’t awkward enough, when the killer gets too close, Cooper temporarily moves into Ruby’s place while a police officer tails her every move. Cooper’s presence distracts Ruby as they fight their desire against their need to stay safe. Then Courtney begins to haunt Ruby’s dreams and secrets are spilled, things from Cooper’s past that could get them both killed. The killer continues to stalk Ruby and the more she discovers, the more she fears she won’t be able to keep her heart in her chest.

Fun fact: I set up and shot this photo in my basement. If you can’t tell, that’s a spellbook in a pool of blood. The charm on it is a real Wiccan symbol for “protection” and as you can guess, is meant to be ironic. I hope that gets you guys excited to read Witch Hearts, on sale soon!
