Cover Reveal and Juicy Bits: INESCAPABLE (Book 1, Eternelles: The Beginning)

Hello world!

These are very exciting times for me. I've mentioned here and there on social media that I'm co-writing a series with my bestie (friend, sister, crit partner, all around awesome girl) - Zee Monodee. For months, we've been working on this series which has now become of epic proportions... so much more than what we initially envisioned it to be!

We started with a germ of an idea for a collaboration on a short story... then we started thinking, why not a novel? From there, we ended up building an entire series unfolding in this quaint, magical town called Shadow Bridge where all manner of creatures exist.

The series is called ETERNELLES (the eternal ones). What makes this unique is the way it's written - in an innovative fashion that mimics season arcs from popular TV series - Supernatural, Grimm, Leverage, Once Upon a Time, Fringe, True Blood, and many more! It's a mix of all you ever wanted to see in a series :). 

The main characters are two immortal women - Adri and Sera - who fight against the evils of the world and, of course, the men who love them! Can't have a romance element without the guys now, isn't that right? 

But Eternelles is so much more than romance - it is adventure, fantasy, myth, lore, legends, mystery, suspense and then some!

So, let me not waste time and show you the cover of the first book, Inescapable, which Zee Monodee created and which I absolutely adore. These two women ARE Adri and Sera; I think they are absolutely perfect. Do you like it as much as I do?

INESCAPABLE, Book 1, Eternelles: The Beginning comes out in April 2013.

Eternelles: The Beginning will consist of 3 books, all to be released in 2013. But then there'll be more... it's going to be an amazing ride!

Here's a sneak peek into INESCAPABLE:

For more than 2000 years, an immortal woman has looked for a reason to live...
Beautiful and ruthless, Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysios is the only mythical being of her kind, the unlikely daughter of the god of wine and revelry, Dionysos, and a maenad. Banished to Earth from Olympus during the Greek Dark Ages, she has roamed the world fending off the attentions of men and the petty jealousies of women while putting her knowledge of battle and her immortality in the service against Evil. Until the day she finds a mysterious baby girl in her backyard. Her life is finally complete... but now unknown forces are after her daughter. With trouble at her doorstep, the dubious role of an elusive man in her life only serves to complicate things further.

A young woman who never asked to exist...

Born with phoenix fire and gypsy blood, and with superior mental prowess, Seraphine 'Sera' Dionysios' origins are as yet shrouded in mystery. Her very existence defies Nature, just like Adri's. As a woman who has loved and lost, she would rather have died after a vampyre tried to make her his. But, Adri made the only choice a true mother would make: the one that would save her child. Torn between a mother whose blood she doesn't share, and a man who now possesses her soul, the only thing Sera can still cling to is her heart...

Adri and Sera fight for the innocent, but who will fight for them?

When the forces of Evil breach the lines of Shadow Bridge, the town where the mortal human world ends and the supernatural realm starts, it is up to these two women to find out the answer behind a prophecy as old as time itself.

The citizens of Shadow Bridge know one thing above any other: always protect the portal. In a place where anything can happen, the very worst will take place... unless Adri and Sera can stop the prophecy.

More juicy bits to be revealed later. Stay tuned!
