YA Cover Reveal: GRETA & THE GOBLIN KING by Chloe Jacobs

Today, it is my honor to reveal the GRETA & THE GOBLIN KING cover to you! :) As a fan of LABYRINTH, this seems like it’s going to be similar, which has me mighty excited! Plus, it’s the first book in a series, “The Mylena Chronicles”!

But before the reveal, a few bits of info!

About the Author

    Chloe Jacobs is a native of nowhere and everywhere, having jumped around to practically every Province of Canada before finally settling in Ontario where she has now been living for a respectable number of years. Her husband and son are the two best people in the entire world, but they also make her wish she’d at least gotten a female cat. No such luck. And although the day job keeps her busy, she carves out as much time as possible to write. Bringing new characters to life and finding out what makes them tick and how badly she can make them suffer is one of her greatest pleasures, almost better than chocolate and fuzzy pink bunny slippers.

    You can follow her on Twitter @Jacobs_Chloe, find her on Facebook, or visit her website to keep up to date!

About the Book

    While trying to save her brother four years ago, Greta was thrown into the witch’s fire herself, falling through a portal to a dangerous world where humans are the enemy, and every ogre, goblin, and ghoul has a dark side that comes out with the full moon.

    To survive, seventeen-year-old Greta has hidden her humanity and taken the job of bounty hunter—and she’s good at what she does. So good, she’s caught the attention of Mylena’s young Goblin King, the darkly enticing Isaac, who invades her dreams and undermines her determination to escape.

    But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. The full moon is mere days away, and an ancient evil knows she’s the key to opening the portal. If Greta fails, she and the lost boys of Mylena will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back…

Without further ado…

So what do you think of the cover?

I think it’s pretty cool and different. Has a high-fantasy quality and yet also reminds me of Buffy… maybe it’s that Angel-like guy hanging out in a trench coat near a full moon. :) I love Greta’s fur vest AND that she apparently gets a sword!

All right, that’s it from me! Don’t forget to pre-order your copy for November 13, 2012 at your local independent bookstore! Don’t have a local indie? Then support your local Barnes & Noble!

Thank you to Chloe, and to Heather Riccio at Entangled Publishing for allowing me to be a part of this cover reveal!

Marketing, Or how I Proved the Existence of Hell.

Self-publishing requires either A) no skills and being totally deluded as to the reality of success in the book market, or B) no skills and the reality you’re going to have to learn a lot. And that’s a simple fact. Between writing, editing, formatting, choosing a printer, choosing retailers, web development, content generation, typesetting, book trailers and the fifty other things I’m forgetting, you’re certain to encounter a challenge for which you are in no way prepared, and not only are you not prepared, your desire to become prepared hovers somewhere near the axis of zero.

I discovered mine on January 11, 2012–Marketing.

Marketing’s an entirely deceptive term. When a thing is so multi-dimensional and other-worldly abstract, we expect it come coupled with Continue reading
