Nobody Knows cover reveal, and other news

Today I'm helping out author friend Kyra Lennon with the cover reveal for her upcoming "rock band romance", Nobody Knows. Having been lucky enough to read an early copy I can safely say it's a riveting, racy read which you'll want to add to your TBR pile as soon as! Also, fantastic news to hear that it will be the first of a series...

::::BOOK INFO::::
Title: Nobody Knows
Author: Kyra Lennon
Genre: NA Romance
Type: First in series (Razes Hell Book 1)
Cover Design: Najila Qamber Designs
Photographer: Lindee Robinson Photography
Release Date: November 3rd 2014

It's not easy being friends with rising rock stars - especially when you're the glue that holds them together.

Razes Hell has taken off in the charts, and Ellie can't believe her childhood friends, Drew and Jason Brooks, are on TV and drawing crowds after years spent playing in dodgy bars. From obscurity to overnight success, Ellie soon realises life in the public eye isn’t all it’s cracked up to be as dark secrets become headline news and old conflicts are re-ignited. When a fake feud meant to boost the band’s popularity threatens to rip the boys apart for real, Ellie finds herself torn – a position which only gets more uncomfortable when her loyalty to Jason collides with her blossoming relationship with Drew.

Nobody knows how deep their issues run; nobody but Ellie. With friendship, a music career and a new love on the line, can Ellie keep their tangled pasts from ruining their futures?

Kyra is a self-confessed book-a-holic, and has been since she first learned to read. When she's not reading, you'll usually find her hanging out in coffee shops with her trusty laptop and/or her friends, or girling it up at the nearest shopping mall.

Kyra grew up on the South Coast of England and refuses to move away from the seaside which provides massive inspiration for her novels. Her debut novel, Game On (New Adult Contemporary Romance), was released in July 2012, and she scored her first Amazon Top 20 listing with her New Adult novella, If I Let You Go in November.

Kyra has been busy and is also getting ready for the release of her anthology for Cats Protection, which I was proud to participate in recently. I couldn't not show the cute cover in this post!

Coming November 10th!

Two Kristas (McLaughlin and Wayment) are bringing something wicked your way...

Hosts: Krista McLaughlin
           Krista Wayment

When: October 29th, 2014

Who: You, of course, and the villain of your choice.

What: The "Something Wicked" Blogfest is in honor of Halloween and the release of Krista W.'s new book in her Trusted series. Krista and I are name twins, who ironically published books at the same time, both with a character named Lainey. Sometimes I wonder if I share part of her brain... We both thought it would be fun to share about villains!

The rules are very simple - you have 400 words or less to write about a real villain, one you created in a novel, or write a flash fiction. Your villain doesn't have to be necessarily a murderer or stalker, but any anti-hero in your writing will work just fine!

Prizes: 4 winners!

Most Evil - Krista M.'s Winner
E-book copy of "Breathless" AND First 3 Chapter Critique
Guest Post on Krista McLaughlin's Blog

Most Creepy - Krista M.'s Runner-Up
E-book copy of "Breathless"

I also wanted to update you all on what I've been up to, as I haven't been too good at doing that recently. First of all... today's my birthday... but that's not such a big deal. Our youngest turns six on Friday, and will have a fabulous Frozen party with all her friends, then on Monday we depart on a cruise to the Canary Islands for two weeks. My mum will also come up on Thursday and stay for a couple of nights, which is nice, but as you can imagine things are hectic here as we get everything organised. During the cruise, we will be celebrating Andrew's 20th birthday on the 22nd, and Emma turns 14 on the last day in the hotel. Phew... and not to mention this little old blog will turn three this Saturday, but it'll be a quiet one. 

Essentially, I will be on a break until the end of the month, as when we get back I will have five days of frantic planning before... NaNo! Yes, I'm yet to crack that particular nut and I'm hoping third time's a charm. This year, I'm "rebelling" (I think?) as I aim to complete Draft 1 of Book 2 of my YA dystopian trilogy and make a start on Book 3. I'm not quite where I aimed to be with progress, so hopefully this will help... ask me again in six weeks' time to see if that's the case! And I'm always up for new NaNo buddies for some mutual encouragement.

What are your plans for October? Doing NaNo this year?

Happy birthday, Nick! :) Have a wonderful time on your trip.

Congrats to Kyra! The cover is awesome. The blogfest looks like so much fun too. I told myself I can't do NaNo this year, but I'm finding it hard to resist!

S.A. Larsenッ said...

Congratulations to Kyra! The book blurb is awesome. Nicely done. I'm sure she'll do wonderful with this one.

Did I hear you're having a birthday? Well, happy birthday! Do something special for yourself, today.

Happy Birthday, Nick! Sounds like a packed week. You'll have earned your trip, so enjoy!
Congrats Kyra!
And good luck with NaNo. Maybe I'll jump in this year. We'll see.

Been seeing Nobody Knows all over the blogosphere and have already added it to my wishlist. Definitely sounds like an awesome read!

Also, happy birthday! You sound so incredibly busy right now. (No wonder your blog will be on a break for a bit!) Best of luck with everything! :)

Very cool, and neat cover:)

dolorah said...

Happy birthday Nick. Mine is on Sunday too. October babies are special. Wow, what a busy birthday month you have.

Have fun on the cruise!! I'm not doing NaNo this year - again - but I am hoping to work on three of my short story starts and get them finished and ready for submission somewhere.

Have a fun month :)

H.R. Sinclair said...

Hi ya Nick. Yup, I lost track of you too. I lost several people when GoogleReader shut down and I move my list over. Happy Birthday and have a great cruise!

Krista McLaughlin said...

Happy belated Birthday Nick! :) It sounds like you are going to be very busy this month. I hope you get time to relax.

I can't wait to read the Cat's Protection book! I didn't get a chance to write an entry, but I do still want to read it. :)

Thanks for sharing about our blogfest - I really, really appreciate it! :)

Misha Gerrick said...

I'm still deciding if I'm brave enough for NaNo. It's been a rough year and is about to be capped of with a rough three months. :-/

Tara Tyler said...

yay for kyra! she's a sweet love-writing nut!

and nano, hmmm... working on a rough draft. i'm considering nano if i get it done... that would be incredible! for now it's a dream - i wish you luck

and happy belated bday!!

cleemckenzie said...

First. Happy Birthday. Second. Have a great break.

Best to Kyra on her new book. Looks wonderful.

Jay Noel said...

Yea Kyra!!!

Happy Birthday to you and all of your loved ones.

Yes, I'm doing NaNo, but this might be an even tougher year than last year. I'm going to be away for an entire week on business, right smack dab in the middle of the month.

We'll see how it goes.

Michelle Wallace said...

Enjoy the trip, Nick!
Good luck with the NaNo preparation...

Mark said...

Very cool:) I've seen this book popping up on other blogs, always a good sign:)

TBM said...

Happy belated birthday and best of luck. Love the cover!

Trisha said...

Wow, that cruise sounds amazing! I hope you've had a wonderful time. :) I would like to hear all about the Frozen party as well. So cute! :D

I'm doing NaNo. What are you up to in November??

Shelley Sly said...

Sorry I'm late visiting, but happy belated birthday to you and everybody! Good luck with NaNo! Looking forward to hearing how everything went.

Kyra's book sounds awesome, too!

H.R. Sinclair said...

Congrats to Kyra. I hope you have a nice time away. Now you deep into NANO so best of luck!

jaybird said...

Happy Birthday!! I've been out of it for a while, but it's great to be back and see what everyone has been up to. Kyra has been busy indeed!! Whoa.

Not doing Nano this year, but best of luck to you!!!
