Cover Reveal, Autumn, and Football!

Hi everyone, as always thanks for stopping by and saying hello! Autumn is right around the corner and a new season is in the air. We transition from a time of heat, humidity, and kids home for the summer into a cooler season. Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. 

I love Fall. It’s my favorite season. This is the perfect time to release Salem’s Daughters. I’m so glad I pushed the date forward. Twice. This gave me time to receive much needed feedback from my ARC readers and do two complete line edits and clean up all those countless little things. 

Cover Reveal: Salem’s Daughters, is supernatural thriller. A four hundred year old evil is unleashed when souls of the daughters of those killed during the Salem Witch Trials find a new generation of people to murder at a popular modern-day bed and breakfast. 

For a full synopsis and to pre-order a copy of Salem’s Daughters for $2.99 (price goes up to $4.99 soon after release) Click Here

A great big thanks to my nephew Jeremy Tremp who designed the cover art. Much better than my cat in a hat concept. And feel free to help with the Cover Reveal during the next couple weeks. If you feel so inspired you can share the image, blurb, and link to pre-order. 

Release Date: I go live October 1st and kick off a blog tour and all that good stuff. I’ll announce the tour dates later this month. I love the promoting part of writing a book. I have lots of really cool stuff planned that I’ll share as I go along. Well, that’s it for now. I’m busy finishing up the Salem’s Daughters Blog Tour posts and watching a lot of football.

Question: Do you have a favorite college or pro football team? Detroit Lions and Michigan State Spartans are mine.

  2. Looks great, Stephen!
    Fall is my favorite. Football and cooler temperatures. I hate humidity...

  3. That is a great looking cover!! Don't have a favorite college football team, but do like the Chargers (years of living in San Diego will do that to someone, LOL). Now that we are in Arizona, might have to shift just a bit of loyalty over to the Cardinals :)

  5. Love your cover! Jeremy did a great job on it. That's so funny you love Michigan State and the Lions. Are you from Michigan? I feel for you because the Lions usually are not very good.

    I married a Pittsburgh fan so that's who I claim.

  7. I love Fall!!! And yes, it does seem perfect for the release of Salem's Daughter!
    Cool cover! The plot sounds really cool, too . . . well in a creepy way. I'm glad I'm not at that Bed and Breakfast when the evil is unleashed O_O

    Congratulations, Stephen! :D

  8. Congrats on your latest release. And the cover your nephew created is fantastic!

    Being from St. Louis, of course I'm a Cardinals fan.

    1. Jay, I think when a team leaves a city they should leave the name behind. A future expansion team can then start up with the same name.

  9. The cover is awesome. I'll be showing it off on my blog Wednesday.

  10. We can't help but be Penn State fans in our family with so many graduates from there. My youngest son is a Detroit Lions fan. Rough day yesterday for your team. Congrats on your upcoming release.

    1. Tammy, I've been to Charger Stadium, or The Q. Great fans but man oh man the Chargers seriously need a new stadium.

  15. I love the cover for Salem’s Daughters! My black cat, Cole, gives it two paws up. ;) I can't wait to host you for your tour.

    Autumn is my favorite season. I can''t wait for it to start kicking in here in FL. My favorite football team is the Packers.

  16. Love the cover and I am looking forward to reading the book. Fall is my favorite season too, I love everything about it. Especially football! But my team is the Buckeyes so boo to your Spartans LOL. I have tickets to that game in November and I can't wait.

    1. Thanks Julie! I'm excited and I'm going to give it one final going over this week. Editing never seems to end.

  17. Your nephew is a talented artist... great cover!

    I'm an Atlanta Falcons fan, and boy! Did they ever give us some excitement in last night's game. They tried their darnedest to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but they came away with the win. Too early to get too excited, but I'm doing it, anyway.

    1. Susan, I saw much of that game. Julio Jones was on my opponent's Fantasy Football Team and he destroyed any hope I had of winning.

  18. I hope your release generates loads of excitement.
    Love the cover!

  19. I don't like football, but I'll say Tennessee Volunteers since that's my "home" team.

    Fall is best back East.

  25. Woot! It's launch time. Yippee! I'm not a football fan, but that's just because I don't watch TV. I would totally get sucked into fandom if I gave it a chance.

  26. All my favorite reasons why this is my favorite season. Congrats to your new book! :)

  27. I don't watch Pro football, but I occasionally watch the BSU Broncos from time to time. Your new book looks like creepy fun! Woot on the upcoming release. Just in time for Halloween.

  28. Congratulations, Stephen! The cover is great!
    And, although I'm not into football that much, I live in Seahawk land and I do like green and blue. :) However, I can say that wow, last year's superbowl was super-disappointing for all the Seahawk fans - worst play ever.

  29. It was great seeing your cover everywhere. What a beautiful autumn picture. I wish our leaves would change like that, but I'm in Florida. I do like how the weather cools down a bit.
