My NEW Cover Reveal: SOULLESS (Win your copy)

IT'S FINALLY TIME TO SHARE MY GORGEOUS COVER!!!

Ahem, I may be just a little excited. (A tiny bit.)

Have you met the Soulless and Passionate? In the world of 1770 where supernatural beings mix with humanity, Alexia is playing a deadly game.

SOULLESS, Book 2 in the Maiden of Time trilogy

Alexia manipulated time to save the man of her dreams, and lost her best friend to red-eyed wraiths. Still grieving, she struggles to reconcile her loss with what was gained: her impending marriage. But when her wedding is destroyed by the Soulless—who then steal the only protection her people have—she’s forced to unleash her true power.

And risk losing everything.

What people are saying about this series: 

"With a completely unique plot that keeps you guessing and interested, it brings you close to the characters, sympathizing with them and understanding their trials and tribulations." --SC, Amazon reviewer

"It's clean, classy and supernaturally packed with suspense, longing, intrigue and magic." --Jill Jennings, TX

"SWOON." --Sherlyn, Mermaid with a Book Reviewer

Crystal Collier is a young adult author who pens dark fantasy, historical, and romance hybrids. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese. You can find her on her blog and Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.


COMING October 13, 2014

    1. Yay! My designer works exclusively for Raybourne Publishing, but he is totally amazing. You should have seen how many mock-ups we went through before giving a stamp of approval. In fact, maybe I should blog about it. =)

    1. Rachel! I was just thinking yesterday how much I missed seeing your smiling face on facebook, and vowing to stalk you and figure out what's happening in life.

      I'll take dragons. I think they're pretty epic too.

      Delete
  16. Beautiful cover! I can't wait to read your books! I signed up for your blog tour. ;)

    As for a favorite supernatural creature--I'm fascinated by sirens. There's something so intriguing and mysterious about them and their ability to sing men to their deaths, like the ones on Pirates. How they're so beautiful, yet so deadly. Kinda quirky, that way.

    1. Wahoo! You rock, Cortney. =)

      Hey, I totally get the siren thing. I mean, what woman doesn't want to be a siren? I mean... ;)

  20. Congratulations on your release!

    I love dragons, though I don't know if they'd be considered more fantasy than supernatural. I also love a good ghost story.

    1. I'm right there with you. Ghost and dragons rock. I wonder if a story has ever been written about a ghost dragon...

  26. Crystal, I'm so excited for you! And the cover of Soulless is magnificent! I'm almost halfway through Moonless and I can't tell you how much I love this book. Your writing is absolutely stunning so I'm really looking forward to sharing it with others. I had to put finishing it on a hold because I'm teaching some writing classes to elementary and middle graders and had to prepare all of my notes.
    Will be looking forward to reading book number 2!

  43. For the ARC, I'd have to say dwarves, so long as they're Tolkien's dwarves. In the original Norse mythology, elves and dwarves are similar. In Tolkien's works, you can see how the two races think they have nothing in common because their values drive them in different directions: dwarves loving to dig and find precious stones, elves preferring wandering through meadows and forests, etc.

    1. Hah! Dwarves. I love Tolkien's dwarves too.
