The Omen of Stones by Casey L Bond - Book trailer reveal!

Title: The Omen of Stones
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: YA Fantasy
Editor: Stacy Sanford/ The Girl with the Red Pen
Cover & Trailer Designer: Melissa Stevens/ The Illustrated Author Design Services
Publication Date: March 13th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:  Spirit and Stone. Song and Sky. Fate and Future all align.
On my seventeenth birthday, I finally heard Fate’s voice. He whispered to me again and again, insisting I find the Omen of Stones. Having never heard of such lore, I thought I could ignore his pleas. The Summer Solstice proved otherwise. Being surrounded by fellow witches worked my magic up into a powerful swell that crashed and churned within me. As the energy crackled through my veins, I shunned my royal duties to follow the call of my heart.
Venturing beyond the safety of the Kingdom’s borders, I felt Fate nudging me toward a destiny I was eager to claim. Confidence in my craft blinded me from the ominous clouds of danger that roiled on the horizon.
Captured by purists dead-set on purging the Kingdom of magic and witches, my salvation came in the form of a mysterious girl who wielded stones like daggers. Something about her called to me, whispering we were stronger together, strong enough to stand against the dark forces threatening to crush my kingdom. Trusting Fate could jeopardize my heritage and my throne, but defying him could cost Omen’s life.

Casey Bond lives in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She likes goats and yoga, but hasn't tried goat yoga because the family goat is so big he might break her back. Seriously, he's the size of a pony. Her favorite books are the ones that contain magical worlds and flawed characters she would want to hang out with. Most days of the week, she writes young adult fantasy books, letting her imaginary friends spill onto the blank page.
Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, the Frenzy series, and fairy tale retellings such as Riches to Rags, Savage Beauty, Unlocked and Brutal Curse. Learn more about her work at www.authorcaseybond.com.

The Boy Who Wouldn't Talk - Boy Behind the Camera by L.L. Hunter - Release Day.




You might be wondering why Behind the Camera is listed as part 4, not another short story like A Touch of Sparkle and One Year in Hollywood.
That's because he JUST WOULDN'T TALK TO ME!
Damian Belle was a hard nut to crack.

It was hard to get inside that man's head. So, i needed to go back into his past, peel back the layers until he showed me who he was. But it didn't come easy.

Damian didn't have the best of upbringings. He and Kate have that in common. It is that similarity which becomes a crucial thing that brings them closer together towards the end: they both had abusive fathers.
Damian's story could have gone down a completely different path. He could have become a completely different person. But his love for movies is what saved him and shaped him into how he is at the end of the book. That's what i wanted to write about. That art can save you.
It's also because of his mother. Throughout the story, Damian showed a huge amount of respect for strong women. Kate is a strong woman, just like Damian's mother.

I don't want to tell you much more. You will have to read the book.

I hope you won't throw tomatoes at me or send hate mail. Please don't. I didn't mean for this book to be as short as it is. But i hope it's a good read, regardless.

And you know, with me, there are always more books coming.

Speaking of, there are two more books coming in this world - later this year, or next year. Depending on my schedule. Read the epilogue in Boy Behind the Camera for a sneak peek at one of those upcoming books.

***

Boy Behind the Camera, book 4 in the Written in the Stars series, is available now on all ebook platforms. Sorry, no paperback for this one.

I looked around at our house, then to the boy standing in it, into his honey-gold eyes. “I don’t regret saving you, and I don’t regret bringing you here, or making salve for you, or letting you stay. I don’t regret walking with you to see the flood. But if I had let those men drown you, or if I would’ve left you bound in the rope when I had the means to sever it, or outside without a roof over your head when I had one to offer… If I’d refused to ease the pain in your wrists, River, I would have regretted it. I would have regretted every second of any and all of those choices.”
