Winter by Keven Newsome

Look at that beautiful cover. My friends Deanna Newsome and Holly Heisey created it for my friend Keven Newsome. Does that name sound familiar? It should. Keven is the founder of The New Authors Fellowship. Yes, that is the excellent joint blog I was asked to join last year. The same blog that has schooled me in the ways of the writer. I am forever grateful for the opportunity.

Enough about that. Today is all about Keven Newsome and his excellent book Winter that will release June 1 this year by Splashdown Books. Here is the blurb.

Winter Maessen didn't ask for the gift of prophecy. She's happy being a freak - but now everyone thinks she's crazy. Or evil.
Goths aren't all the same, you know. Some are Christians.
...Christians to whom God sends visions.

Students at her university are being attacked, and Winter knows there's more than flesh and blood at work.
Her gift means she's the only one who can stop it - but at what price?

Here is the trailer:

And here is where you can pre-order:

What are you waiting for, silly?

An Interview

Welcome and thank you all for coming back for today’s Anvil Interview with the muti-talented, Grace Bridges. Some of you may not know this, but Grace actually gave me my anvil. Silly thing had no idea it would someday be used on her. She never knew I would use it to reveal the truth. What is that truth? I’ll get to that in a minute.

Before I begin, let me go over the rules for entry in the drawing for two copies of Legendary Space Pilgrims. As always, leave a comment on the Interview and Review, post a link on Facebook for the Review and the Interview tomorrow, and go like Splashdown Books on Facebook. You may enter up until Tuesday the 19th at midnight Central time. Peyton will draw two names from his special hat. I will announce the winner on Wednesday the 20th with my blog post. The winner will have 24 hours to contact me with their address: dmgraham2001[at]yahoo[dot]com. Otherwise, Peyton will draw another name. I do reserve the right to extend the contest longer if I so choose.

A Review and Giveaway

Yes, I know it’s been forever since I’ve wielded my anvil. As a matter of fact, I had to get the scrub brush out and give the old gal a little elbow-grease action. Please forgive me, dear friends. I’ll try harder from now on.

I am excited to present a treat for all of you. As you may know, I’m rather fond of indie publishers. One of my favorites is Splashdown Books. And today I’m honored to review Legendary Space Pilgrims by owner/ author Grace “Ace” Bridges. Not only does she have an uncanny way of choosing excellent speculative fiction, but the girl can write. I reviewed her book Faith Awakened at the end of December. Check it out if you feel so inclined.
