Untethered Realms News from Christine Rains & Angela Brown

As many people know I am proud to be part of the Untethered Realms writing group. So it's exciting for me to be able to share great news from two of my fellow UnRealms members and help spread the word about their work.

I had also planned to shamelessly beg people to help me promote the Thunderclap campaign I want to start for Polar Day today. But as is typical for me lately I can't seem to get in gear to actually set up the campaign, so I will save my begging for another day. Twelve days into 2015 and I am apparently still as lazy as I was in 2014. One of these days I will get my focus back.

For now though I'm happy to share the new release from Christine Rains, Loose Corset. Yay, Christine!

Loose Corset is the first installment in Christine's Dice & Debauchery trilogy with Ellora's Cave. It's a contemporary erotic romance and was released on Friday, so here are the purchase links for you to get your copy now:


You can also add Loose Corset on Goodreads.

Unfortunately my Word and Google drive software decided to act up last night when I was trying to open the document with the book blurb on it so I can't share that here, but you can read the spicy synopsis at any of the above links. In addition, Christine is hosting a fun and geeky giveaway this month to go along with the release. Enter through the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post!

I also want to share some awesome new covers from Angela Brown for her Shadow Jumpers Trilogy. (I've read the first one and it is a fantastic book!)

Here are the original covers, which were wonderful in their own right. But as Angela put it, these covers did not let readers know that the titles were part of a series.

So Angela conferred with designer Heather McCorkle and together they came up with these exciting new covers!
Duty or love...there can be only one.
A love worth fighting for...
Aren't they gorgeous? I've been meaning to read Book 2 for ages anyway and this made me want to hurry up and get to it ASAP.

Just click on the covers to get the titles on Amazon.

Congratulations and best of luck to both Angela and Christine! :)

I will get your books this year, I have been meaning to, but get distracted by books sent by friends and this fun thrift store we have in our small town. So many books, so much to read.......

  10. Thanks so much for sharing about the new covers, Julie. It's so wonderful being a part of a writing group with awesoome authors like you. Speaking of which, let me know what's up with your thunderclap so I can happily support you, my UnRealms bud.

  14. Untethered Realms has a host of books! How wonderful. That Thunderclap.. . I'm not calling it Thundefart (sorry) was one heck of a lot of work. Still haven't decided if it was worthy of the time.

  15. Thanks so much, Julie, and thank you to everyone for the congratulations. Angela's new covers are gorgeous! The stories rock too. :)

  16. YAY for Christine!!

    I can sooo relate to your "still as lazy as I was in 2014" thing. I haven't done a single creative thing so far in 2015. :( But I am determined that TONIGHT, I will do something.

  17. Hi Julie,

    It's all good. So kind of you to share this. Hearty congrats to the adorable Christine. Angela's covers are awesome.

    Gary :)

  22. Yay for Christine!

    I've got both Angela's books loaded on my kindle, just waiting for me. I'm excited to get to them, but not quite there. Soon. Very soon.

  23. Congrats to Christine & Angela! I just finished Christine's. Need to get a review up.

  24. Congrats, UmRealms-ers!! The covers are all great, and yes, the second series are much more tied together :)

    Julie, I sincerely doubt you're lazy. Too busy is probably more accurate!

  25. Congratulations and best of luck, Christine.

    Fabulous new covers, Angela.

  26. Oh those covers are so much better Angela! Good job Heather McCorkle! And great to see Christine's book everywhere :)

    PS Julie, keep me in mind when you organise a blog tour for your new book. Love the cover! :)
