IT'S FINALLY HERE!! Eye of the Soul Cover Reveal!!!!! #SQUEEE


I have been DYING to share the cover of my debut fantasy novel, Eye of the Soul for what seems like FOREVER.

This WiP has been in the works for over 5 years. Five long, stinkin' crazy years. In that time I've moved twice, got married, and had 2 kids. Been a bit busy, and I'm surprised I ever finished this labor of love!

When J. Taylor Publishing offered me a contract for the 2-book series, Pool of Souls, I was jumping out of my skin. Excuse the cliche, but there's no other way to say it. Book #1, Eye of the Soul, is set to release on October 7th of this year, and book #2, Secret of the Souls, in October 2014.

Anyhoo. Here's the purdy & blurb.

Escape. 

That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason. 

Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on. 

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.

Forever.

  6. Love this! Love, love, love it Terri! I especially love that oh so subtle scar by the heroine's eye. Now I'm dying to read this and find out what happened! As a fantasy reader, I love those little hints the cover can give. So great. Love it. Congrats!! (could I possibly use the word "love" ONE MORE TIME!!) lol

    1. LOL! I think I said 'love' a million times when I saw the final product almost 2 months ago! It was a killer having to wait to share it.

      So glad you like it & thanks for stopping by with such awesome words of edification. :)

      BTW - it's actually a few strands of wayward hair blowing across her cheek, not a scar. Scar IS a cool idea. Definitely would have added more intrigue!
