Release Day Blitz + Giveaway: RETURN OF THE ASCENDANT by Raine Thomas

It’s ROTA’s Launch Day!

Today celebrates the release of my latest novel, Return of the Ascendant (The Ascendant Series #1). Some of you may have had the chance to read this book in the Curses, Fates & Soul Mates box set, or the prequel short story in the Take Me to Your Reader anthology. If so, you’ll be excited to know that I’ve written two entirely new chapters that will only appear in this version of ROTA. You won’t want to miss them!

To celebrate ROTA’s launch, I’m offering the novel for only 99 cents until April 15th. I’m also hosting a fun giveaway, so be sure to enter below! First, let’s learn a little more about the book, including how you can grab your copy before the sale ends:

About the Book:

Return of the Ascendant is a thrilling New Adult Sci-Fi Romance

Expecting to enjoy another typical college night at a frat party with friends, Kyra Vaughn’s plans derail when she’s almost killed…twice. Her savior, a tall, sexy stranger who calls himself TaeDane, claims that he’s the personal bodyguard for the Ascendant of Alametria. She’s convinced he’s crazy.

Especially when he insists that she’s the Ascendant.

With dark enemies hunting her down, Kyra has no choice but to trust her supposed bodyguard. Ty vows to help her remember her past and return her safely to Alametria, but someone seems intent on interfering, challenging his abilities at every turn.

As Kyra’s memories emerge, she remembers that Ty is more to her than he’s let on…much more than he’s allowed to be. She’ll also discover that there are many things about her planet and herself that she’d rather forget. In the end, she’ll have to make a choice: cling to the life she knows, or risk it all to become the person she’s destined to be.

New Release + Giveaway: TAKE ME TO YOUR READER Anthology

I’m beyond honored to be participating in a short story anthology with fellow authors Amy A. Bartol, Tammy Blackwell, Amanda Havard, Heather Hildenbrand, Tiffany King, C.A. Kunz, and Sarah M. Ross. The anthology, titled Take Me to Your Reader, is a collaboration of short stories featuring aliens, and all proceeds will go to benefit the UtopYA Conference in Nashville. We all love the conference’s founder, Janet Wallace, and her amazing team, and since the theme of this year’s conference is aliens, we all decided to create this anthology to show our support.

Regina Wamba with MaeiDesign created the beautiful cover, and K.P. Simmon with Inkslinger PR is helping with the promotion of the anthology. This has been a group effort, but I’d personally like to thank Tiffany King and her awesome hubby, Karl, for putting so much time and effort into making this happen. You both ROCK!

For those of you who know that my next book is Return of the Ascendant (releasing on Monday), you may be interested to note that the prequel short story, The Ascendant, will only appear in this anthology. If you’re ready to learn more about Kyra and Ty’s story, be sure to grab your copy today!

Two Incredible Cover Reveals + Blog Tour Sign-Ups!

Here's to one last year as a 30-something!

Today’s my birthday, so I thought it’d be fun to celebrate with a couple of cover reveals! One of the reveals is for my upcoming release, Return of the Ascendant. Let’s start by sharing the scoop about exactly where my new book will appear…and reveal that cover, too!

I’m collaborating with bestselling authors Kristie Cook, Lynn Rush, R.K. Ryals, and Rachael Wade on a boxed set featuring 5 full-length Paranormal New Adult Romances. How exciting is that?? The set, titled Curses, Fates & Soul Mates, is launching on February 17th, and the other authors and I are putting out a call to bloggers who are interested in participating in the launch tour.

To participate in the LAUNCH TOUR, please click here.

We’re planning a fun and innovative launch, including a Facebook party, huge giveaways, pre-orders and more! Outside of blogging, there are other ways you can join in the fun. We’ve created a Facebook group called Souls of Indie, and the aforementioned FB party will run from 2/14 to 2/17. Click the link and ask to join the group so you don’t miss out!

If all of that wasn’t enough to convince you, how about this gorgeous cover for Curses, Fates & Soul Mates designed by Robin Ludwig Design?

Incredible, right? One of the unique aspects of this boxed set is that I’m opting to release Return of the Ascendant exclusively in the set upon its initial release. That’s right, fans…you’ll have to get it in the boxed set first!

Without further adieu, let’s find out more about the book and check out the beautiful cover designed by Regina Wamba of MaeIDesign
