Cover Reveal: The Deep End of The Sea by Heather Lyons

Deep End Of The Sea - Front CoverI'm extremely excited to share the cover for  Heather Lyons' THE DEEP END OF THE SEA! I'm so excited about this book, and it's releasing on February 13, 2014!!  

About THE DEEP END OF THE SEA:   What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong? Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age. But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.   Deep End of the Sea - Full Cover

The Story Behind Shaken Not Stirred

Mixology was born on a trip to the Outer Banks. It was the off season, a few months before the coastal community came alive for the summer. I was struck by the sense of anticipation and had fun chatting with some of the waitresses, bartenders, and store owners about the quiet season. I couldn't help filling in the details of their stories-- and I just knew I'd have I write a book set against that backdrop.

SNS follows Maddy as she navigates the post college graduation waters when things don't go exactly as planned. This book isn't about a girl making big decisions, it's about one handling the fallout of her her dreams-- or at least the dreams she thought were hers. Along the way she meets Colin, a twenty-something who's not quite as lost but needs to learn about balance, and she finds her place living with two guys-- one her childhood best friend.

SNS has the same romantic yet comedic feel of Hazards, but it focuses on the early twenty-something experience rather than college. I had a ball writing it, and I hope you guys enjoy this trip to the Outer Banks!

Comment below with your email and favorite vacation spot to enter to win a print ARC of Shaken Not Stirred (open internationally). Giveaway ends on Tuesday 12/17 at 10pm eastern time.

Hey everyone!

I thought it was time to share some release dates and updates with you guys.

Shaken Not Stirred is releasing on January 7th. I'm super excited to release this NA romantic comedy! The Hazards of a One Night Stand is set for a March 2014 release. I'm so excited to share this companion novel to the Hazards of Skinny Dipping!

Search (The Empire Chronicles #2) will be releasing in April 2014! I'm thrilled that so many of you discovered Soar, and I can't wait to bring you the next chapter of the story. Also, there may be a wedding in Search that Crescent fans won't want to miss. :)

And some other news.

I'm shelving Corded for the time being. I've read over the book and I'm just not 100% satisfied with it. I refuse to release a book I'm not completely confident about. I know many of you were excited about this book, but I think waiting to a later date is the best decision at this time.

BUT on a more exciting note, I'm working on a new NA paranormal story I can't wait to share with you guys!

Also, I've started a new monthly paperback giveaway. I'm randomly picking one email from my new release newsletter mailing list and giving them a choice of a print copy of any of my books. You can join the list here: http://eepurl.com/ktlSj
