Cover Reveal for Torch (Lantern, #3)

Paper and Sage Design has done it again. ❤ This cover is swoon-worthy, and I can’t wait to share my new Lantern story with you.

What’s Torch about?

Evelyn moves to Pennsylvania where she attends her first lakeside Halloween party. But she misses her brothers and is disturbed by a lantern on the pier that’s burned out.

Graham’s dreams come true in Havenbrim where he is Machin’s newest apprentice. Until he finds himself repeatedly disappointing his master.

Is the solution to their happiness in her world, or in his? Who will light the way to pull the other through?

Read with your ears! The audio edition of Beacon has released!

This has truly been a busy week, but in a good way. Beacon, a second story set in Havenbrim, Llum (and in our world) is now available as an audiobook. Those who listened to my Wrapped in the Past novella will recognize the narrator, Janine Haynes. She does an excellent voicing of Serah Kettel and the other characters, and I can’t wait for you to hear it!

Cover reveal for Beacon

beacon-desalls-ebookwebI couldn’t wait to share this cover! After Lantern released, readers told me they wanted to know more about Machin and what he was up to in Havenbrim. This novella is not a continuation of Tori and Jared’s story, however. Beacon is another lantern’s tale.

I’m hoping this will publish before Halloween!

Many thanks to Paper & Sage Design for another beautiful cover.
