E.J. Wesley's Cover Reveal Party

I've been on an unplanned blogging hiatus due to distractions stemming from a very busy start of the new school year at the college where I work (damn real life anyway) but I am jumping back into the blogging pool today to help celebrate E.J. Wesley's cover reveal party for his book BLOOD FUGUE. E.J. is totally awesome and one of my favorite bloggers out there, so it's a treat to be able to join in his celebrations. Woo-hoo E.J.!

Here is all you need to know, straight from the man himself:

Author E.J. Wesley is throwing a blog party to celebrate the release of his new book cover and wants you to join in the fun. Jump over to his blog to learn about how you can win some awesome prizes, including $50 toward a cover of your own and advance reader copies of Blood Fugue.

The Rocking Cover!

What's the Story About?

“Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted.”

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried. She wears loneliness like a comfy sweatshirt. By the age of twenty-one, she was the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thought… 

"We found my ‘grandfather’ sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I’d seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them.”

Suddenly, instead of burying her history with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.

BLOOD FUGUE by E.J. Wesley, is the first of the MOONSONGS books, a series of paranormal-action novelettes. At fewer than 13k words, BLOOD FUGUE is the perfect snack for adventurous readers who aren’t afraid of stories with bite. Available wherever fine eBooks are sold September 2012.

Join the Party!

One quick note from me before I get sucked back in to real life. If you aren't already familiar with E.J.'s blog, you really need to check it out. He's a great writer and I've no doubt that the Moonsong series will be fantastic. Congratulations, E.J.!


  1. Glad I could bring you out of hiding, Julie! :-) Thanks again for helping me share my cover, and for the kind words.

    Did you finish up the Game of Thrones series yet?

  2. Awesome cover reaveal! I understand about the distractions from blogging recently. I'm there too, but trying to get back on track. How's Game of Thrones? I'm thinking of tackling at least the first book in the series.

  3. Good luck with the new school year and EJ is doing a great job with his cover reveal because it's EVERYWHERE!

  4. @Alex, I agree!

    @Tonja, I know, it's excellent.

    @EJ, you're very welcome! I did finish Game of Thrones, I'm actually totally bummed to be done with it! Who knows when Martin will publish the next one LOL.

    @Michael, I did finish GoT and I highly recommend it, I hope you enjoy it if you decide to start reading!

    @Johanna, thanks!

  5. LOL at the damn real life. That's what I say!!! This book looks really intriguing and I love the cover. Saw him on another blog too. These blog tours must really work because usually by the second time I see something I want to buy it! On the wish list it goes!

  6. @Lisa, LOL, real life is definitely a nuisance. ;)

  7. Hope things are settling down for you, Julie!


  8. Shall I admit that I had to look up the word "fugue?"

    Yep, been seeing E. J. everywhere today. Big congrats to him and Vic on the cover reveal. :)

    And I hope life slows down a little for you. It is a busy time of year, though, when the schools start back up.

  9. This is a great cover! Going to check out his blog now.

  10. @LG, I did too! LOL, glad I'm not the only one.

    @Carol, EJ's blog is awesome. :)

  11. EJ's cover looks fantastic and I can't wait to read his story.

  12. Wow! Those descriptions are powerful. I'm off to check out his blog.

  13. @Melissa and Susan, I agree 100% with both of you. :)

  14. I am also really drawn to EJ's creative cover! Best of luck with your book EJ, and with your hectic schedule Julie!

  15. @Mary, I second that. :)

    @Julie, thanks, I think things will calm down after this week. Fingers crossed anyway LOL.

  16. The best of luck to EJ!
    And Clancy's hair cut doesn't look that bad. Maybe you are being too hard on yourself. ;)

  17. @Michelle, oh, those pics are from after the groomer fixed my mess. I couldn't bear to take any pics of him after what I did LOL. It was a nightmare.

  18. I have come across this book several times over the last week or so. Like the cover.

  19. @JL, it's great that the book is popping up so many places, very happy for EJ. :)
