As usual, I’m a day late and (thousands of) dollar short: I was supposed to publish this Cover Reveal *yesterday*, and after I BEGGED the author, A.J. Aalto, to do a cover reveal. Sigh. (And hangs my head in shame.) But, as usual, life happened, so here I am, finally revealing the cover I begged to show.
I know A.J. from Facebook (not IRL; she lives in Canada), and I find her to be a hilarious and awesome individual. To get her writing done, she gets up at 4am. That’s about when I’m going to sleep, usually. We have lots of fun sparring and chatting on Facebook. If we got together in person, you’d probably need to call the SWAT team on us. (I kid, I kid.)
So, anywho, I’ll shaddup now and show you the cover (designed by Greg Simanson) of her latest book: Wrath & Bones, book 4 of The Marnie Baranuik Files (in the paranormal/fantasy genre, btw), which will be unleashed upon the world on Dec. 28, 2015. (You can pre-order it now, if you’re so inclined.)
Isn’t it purty? I HAVE to read it to find out what the honey thing is all about…
So, here is what the book is about:
Marnie Baranuik is confident that her new psychic detective agency will be a great success, and she has eight million business cards to prove it. But before the paint even dries on her open for business sign, she’s summoned to face the Demon King Asmodeus in His own playground, the revenant court, home of the undead nobility, to participate in a conclave of the most powerful immortals on Earth.
Orc prophets have forewarned her that danger is looming in the far north. In her most ambitious adventure yet, Marnie must harness her powers, gather trusted friends to wade into battle, and complete an international treasure hunt that would make Indiana Jones break into a cold sweat, before raising a new revenant house to rule from the Unhallowed Throne… and do it all without getting her heart or legs broken. Storms are brewing, threats are piling up, and the stakes are higher than ever, but Marnie is determined to dance with danger to the very end. There’s only one thing left to do: deal with it, Baranuik-Style. Does anyone know if yetis like take-out? And when you’re on a date with a mummy, who picks up the check?
About the author:
AJ Aalto is an unrepentant liar and a writer of blathering nonsense offset by factual gore. When not working on her horror novels, you can find her singing old Monty Python songs in the shower, eavesdropping on perfect strangers, stalking her eye doctor, or failing at one of her many fruitless hobbies. Generally a fan of anyone with a passion for the ridiculous, she has a particular weak spot for smug, pseudointellectual a**holes and narcissistic jerks; readers will find her work littered with dark, imperfect creatures and flawed monsters.
AJ cannot say no to a Snickers bar, and has been known to swallow her gum.
