My Cover Reveal for The Princess and the Prom Queen

I have exciting news! My new book, The Princess and the Prom Queen will release on April 29th—My Birthday! 

Here is my new cover! Isn't it beautiful?

Trifecta Books is proud to announce a fun YA urban fantasy by author Jaclyn Weist—The Princess and the Prom Queen.

Jenny’s had it with her life. Six siblings in an overstuffed house are enough to drive anyone crazy, and sometimes she dreams of escaping to some fantasy world. When she suddenly wakes up to find herself being kissed by a strange—but very handsome—prince, Jenny knows her life just got a lot more exciting. Now stuck in a medieval land of castles and royalty, when Jenny learns that the queen has agreed to marry her off to the prince, it’s time to take matters into her own hands. She goes on a quest to find out who dragged her to this time while trying to keep from falling in love with either of the boys vying for her attention.

Princess Genevieve has only known life under her mother’s rule. She wants to do more than go to battle or deal with suitors. She wakes to find herself in a new world filled with gadgets, electricity, and moving carriages. She finally has the freedom to be who she wants to be with a family who cares deeply for her and a boy worth any sacrifice. It’s more than everything she always wanted.  

As Jenny and Genevieve settle into their new lives, they face an unknown evil which threatens everything they care about and makes them face tough questions—like who they are and what they really want their lives to become. 

The Princess and the Prom Queen will be available on Kindle April 29th, 2014, with print to follow shortly. You are invited to attend the online launch party on Facebook by clicking here at 7:00 pm on that day.

Wonhundred Wednesdays

A few of my author friends and I are going to do “WonHundred Word Wednesdays.” Each week we will be given a prompt. We will write a 100 word story based on that prompt and post it.  Then we will link to the other blogs doing it too so that everyone can see what kind of range can happen — even in a small group — based on one simple idea.

This week's prompt:

"You are on a crowded subway platform when you see a 

familiar face"

My story:

He was here. I licked my lips nervously. I had waited months for this. I pulled out the mirror from my purse and checked my makeup again. Not that it mattered. He would be happy to see me no matter what. His clothes were pressed, but they were worn. We would have to get him some new ones. I smiled, happy knowing that there would plenty of time for that, now. I bent down and adjusted Billy’s coat. 

“Mama, what are we doing here? I want to go home.”

“Me too, sweetie. But first we must say hello to Daddy.”

Check out the other great stories! And come back next Wednesday for the next prompt.

The Spark of a Feudling by Wendy Knight

I'm so excited for this book. I have enjoyed each of her books and now we have the prequel for Feudlings!

Here is the blurb:

Hate can start a war, but a shattered heart can fuel it for centuries. 
Everything Ada does is wrong. She’s the daughter of a Duke but she isn’t proper or formal. She prefers the company of her servants—particularly Christian, the boy she’s loved since she was six years old, and his sister, Charity, Ada’s very best friend in the entire world.
Ada isn’t just the daughter of a Duke. No, she’s the daughter of one of the most powerful Edren sorcerers alive, and no matter how strong she is, it isn’t strong enough. Ada will give up almost everything to earn her father’s pride.
Christian has loved Ada since the day his mother became her governess. But two societies are determined to keep them apart—the aristocracy who say a groom will never be good enough for a Duke’s beautiful daughter, and the sorcerers who say a Carules and an Edren can never be together. Christian will do anything to make Ada his—even drive himself to madness.
When Ada suspects her father of hurting Charity and Christian in his quest for knowledge, she is torn between loyalty to him, and a fierce determination to protect them. The division tears her soul and breaks her heart.
The pieces of her broken heart will start a war that can only be stopped by the death of the most powerful warrior alive by the hand of the boy who loves her.

Want a bonus story? Check it out!

**Bonus Story –Feudlings in Peace**
Join  Ari, Shane, Ada, Christian and everyone they love as they chase their happily ever after.
He sprinted down the path, into the forest, leaping over huge rocks and tree roots and through streams he couldn’t see but his magic told him were there. He had no idea where he was going, but there seemed to be a tether from his heart to hers — he always knew where Ada was. He ran straight to them, nearly colliding with her father’s guards as he raced through the thick trees. 
“What happened to her?” he bellowed, jerking Ada out of Davis’s bloodstained arms. 
“She was hit, saving me,” Harrison answered. “Can you help her?” 
If there had been time, any time at all, Christian would have paused at that. How exactly had his tiny little Ada saved the giant Harrison? But there wasn’t time. He laid her on the thick grass, searching for the wound. But there was so much blood. 
“There!” Davis snapped, jabbing the air above her stomach. 
Flames roiled across Christian’s hands and he held them above her, letting the flames soothe the skin before he tried to touch it. They swirled through the air, seeping and mending the broken, charred skin. 
“Does she breathe?” Harrison asked, crouching close to put his face next to her mouth. 
Christian ignored him. He didn’t care if she breathed or not. 
She would breathe, or he would die with her. 
“She does.” Harrison sat back, relieved. 
“Can you not heal at all? Stop the blood flow from her shoulder!” Christian snapped. 
Harrison gaped at him. “We’re Edren. We don’t heal.” 
“I’m Carules and I can throw a lirik if need be,” Christian muttered under his breath, but he couldn’t argue with them now. 
She moaned. 
They all froze in shock, and then redoubled their efforts. Davis jerked his shirt off and held it to her shoulder while Christian’s blue flames leaped and danced from his hands, fighting the poison eating through her body. 
“Christian. I knew—” she whispered as her skin healed, leaving only pink burns behind. 
“Shhh. Don’t speak. You’re still very weak.” He moved from her stomach to her shoulder, pushing Davis’ shirt out of the way. It was stiff with dried blood and she shrieked when he ripped it from the wound. “Forgive me, dear one,” he whispered, his mouth near her temple, kissing the pain away. “Forgive me.” 
“I knew… you would come. I knew you… could heal me.” Her eyes fluttered open, dazed with pain, dark orbs barely reflecting the moonlight. 
“Always, Ada. Forever.”

Author Bio and links:
Wendy Knight is the bestselling author of the young adult series Fate on Fire and Riders of Paradesos. She was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, no touching the knives…you get the idea). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big—her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S. 
You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heels for whatever the occasion. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.

Trusted Blog Tour by Krista Wayment

Trusted Blog Tour Scavenger Hunt

For extra chances to enter the give away I'm doing as part of my blog tour, I'm doing a scavenger hunt. This is how it will work:

1. Choose a colored dragon scale image.
2. Place the image anywhere on your blog. (This can include the actual post you are doing for the tour.)
3. Email or message me with the color of dragon scale you would like to use.

And—that's it.

I'm going to have a schedule on my blog indicating which blogs will have dragon scales on them.

About the Book

Renick, the fifth son of a dragon breeder, crashes into an unexpected adventure that challenges everything he thought he knew about dragons, history, and himself.

Stranded in the massive Helath forest, Renick meets two other passengers: Thane, a noble training to be a dragon knight, and Lainey, the orphaned niece of a healer. Together they survive an attack by vicious wolves, rescue a baby dragon with a broken wing, and escape from a band of dragon hunters as they make a perilous climb into the mountains. What they discover there will change everything.
