Today we're excited to help author, Kara Leigh Miller, spread the cover love! Her newest book, TORN (THE GEORGIA CORBINS, Book 1) is an upper young adult / new adult contemporary romance and the first in a planned trilogy.
Coming May 3, 2016....
Two years ago, Alison "Ali" Philips watched her two best friends -- Levi and Tucker Corbin -- pack up and move away from the only home they'd ever known. Being apart is difficult enough, but going years without so much as a phone call or email from either of the brothers was heartbreaking for Ali. But life goes on, and Ali learns to slowly pick up the pieces of her life and mend the hole they left in her heart. She's doing pretty dang well, too. Until she comes face-to-face with Levi Corbin during Monday morning Physics lab.
The pain of being left behind still stings, but seeing the boys makes her want to go back to the way things were. Unfortunately for her, they've returned with only one thing on their minds: Winning Ali's heart. Ali soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle she never intended to be a part of. As she tries to reclaim the friendships she's lost, unfamiliar feelings begin to stir. It's time to make a decision, one that will forever change all their lives: Levi or Tucker Corbin?
Ali is only certain of one thing -- She can't have one Corbin boy without losing the other.

Congratulations to my fellow Pitch Wars mentor Charlie N. Holmberg on the day of her gorgeous cover reveal! It's so pretty. And I cannot wait to read this book. Check it out, guys!
Maire is a baker with an extraordinary gift: she can infuse her treats with emotions and abilities, which are then passed on to those who eat them. She doesn’t know why she can do this and remembers nothing of who she is or where she came from.
When marauders raid her town, Maire is captured and sold to the eccentric Allemas, who enslaves her and demands that she produce sinister confections, including a witch’s gingerbread cottage, a living cookie boy, and size-altering cakes.
During her captivity, Maire is visited by Fyel, a ghostly being who is reluctant to reveal his connection to her. The more often they meet, the more her memories return, and she begins to piece together who and what she really is—as well as past mistakes that yield cosmic consequences.
From the author of the Paper Magician series comes a haunting and otherworldly tale of folly and consequence, forgiveness and redemption.
Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet is available for preorder on Amazon and B&N. Ebook, audiobook, and paperback release from 47North June 28th!
You can also preview the novel on Goodreads.
This year I, along with a whole other bunch of awesome authors, am helping out with a brand new contest for unagented writers. If you have a polished manuscript, then this might just be the contest for you. Here are all the details you need!
What is #FicFest?
#FicFest is an online writer’s contest which helps put manuscripts in front of literary agents. This contest, unlike most, is open to manuscripts in ALL genres (including those usually excluded such as Paranormal Romance or Erotica) in the categories of Picture Book, Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult.
#FicFest mentors are structured into fifteen (15) teams. Each category that I listed has three teams. Each team is comprised of a team leader, and two (2) team members. Once the submissions open, each team will choose three (3) finalist manuscripts and one (1) alternate manuscript to advance to the agent round. This means that an equal number of manuscripts for each category will move to the agent round, guaranteeing that one category does NOT overpower another when it comes time for the agents.
45 manuscripts total move to the agent round, with 15 manuscripts being held as alternates in case one of the main finalists drops out of the contest for any reason. This is one of the things we stress in promoting #FicFest because most contests are overrun with Young Adult. In many contests, they may advance 40 manuscripts to the agent round, but the problem lies in the fact that 30 of that 40 are all Young Adult. That won’t happen with #FicFest.
Nine manuscripts from each category will make their appearance in the agent round. No more, no less. NINE each. Let me stress this one more time. In the agent round, you will have 9 Picture Books, 9 Middle Grade, 9 Young Adult, 9 New Adult, and 9 Adult. Everyone gets a fair chance.
We are adding more agents every day and while I can’t give you a solid number, I can tell you that we have close to two dozen confirmed to participate in our agent round and we can’t wait!

It is with great pleasure I get to help celebrate to the book release of a fellow Pitch Wars mentor today. That's right. The Reburialists by J.C. Nelson is born! I can't hang around to chat because I'm off to buy my copy! Here are all the deets you need!
Burying the dead is easy. Keeping them down is difficult.
At the Bureau of Special Investigations, agents encounter all sorts of paranormal evils. So for Agent Brynner Carson, driving a stake through a rampaging three-week-old corpse is par for the course. Except this cadaver is different. It’s talking—and it has a message about his father, Heinrich.
The reanimated stiff delivers an ultimatum written in bloody hieroglyphics, and BSI Senior Analyst Grace Roberts is called in to translate. It seems that Heinrich Carson stole the heart of Ra-Ame, the long-dead god of the Re-Animus. She wants it back. The only problem is Heinrich took the secret of its location to his grave.
With the arrival of Ra-Ame looming and her undead army wreaking havoc, Brynner and Grace must race to find the key to stopping her. It’s a race they can’t afford to lose, but then again, it’s just another day on the job . . .
