Covenant Virtual Book Tour & Archon Giveaway!

Today marks the official start of Covenant's virtual book tour at Bewitching Book Tours! Visit the official page--the link to which I will provide below--to see a comprehensive list of tour stops, perhaps get a little taste of the novel, and also enter a giveaway to win one of three print copies of Archon, the first book in The Books of Raziel series!

The tour consists of guest posts and interviews, so you can look for things like just why I prefer to write fantasy fiction, inspirations for Covenant, and what terrifies an author like me (such as zombies and reviews of my own books of course).

Here is the promised link: http://bewitchingbooktours.blogspot.com/2014/03/now-on-tour-covenant-by-sabrina-benulis.html

Good luck! :-D

Book Description for Covenant Finally Up!

At last I can say that a proper book description for Covenant is up on Amazon and other such websites! Now you can check it out before it hits Goodreads. :-) http://www.amazon.com/Covenant-Books-Raziel-Sabrina-Benulis-ebook/dp/B00BATEIDK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386715399&sr=8-1&keywords=covenant+benulis

In other related news, the upcoming release of Covenant means the first draft of Book 3 by spring.  Things look more on the ball this time, so with any luck this means a Summer 2015 release date for the last book in the trilogy.  Oh, the milestones.....

Eternal Shadows by Kate Martin Free Halloween E-Book Giveaway

Precious few vampire novels entertain me. And when we're talking about novels in a series, even fewer hold my interest into the next installment. This novel happens to be an exception on both counts. Eternal Shadows is a novel written by a good friend who also happens to be a talented author, Kate Martin. However, our friendship aside, this book is truly good.  It was one of the first I'd read in a long while where I was eager to read more once it was over.


Here's the description of Eternal Shadows as written by Kate:

Vampires aren't supposed to be real, and Kassandra is not supposed to be one of them. But on the morning of her eighteenth birthday she wakes with fangs, a hunger for blood, and a body with abilities she can't control. Turned by the irritating, yet handsome, Rhys O'Shea, Kassandra struggles to balance her former human life with her new life as one of the undead.

With the world at war, the vampires have stepped in--but if the existence of the supernatural is exposed, then an entirely new battle will erupt. A battle for survival that will forever alter the future.
But the past may be just as dangerous. Kassandra can't stop the dreams of a young Irish girl in the medieval countryside, a girl who smiles when Rhys comes near, nor can she shake a looming sense of doom. The last time she felt this dark chill her mother died, and now Kassandra could be next.

And here's the snazzy cover:

And best of all, Kate is offering her book on Amazon.com for FREE on Halloween!

I'm never afraid to endorse a good book.  Well--this book has my full endorsement! Check out my Goodreads review of Eternal Shadows here: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/282016472

Covenant (Book 2) Official Cover Reveal

This is one lovely cover!!!

I doubt anyone will have an idea of what the second book is about just by looking at this picture, but I always find everyone's conjectures intriguing . . .

Isn't this just gorgeous???

For now, the April release date should hold.  Believe me, if anyone wants it to hold, than that person is me.

More news when I have it!

April Can't Come Fast Enough

Or can it?  Because I'm really not ready to shop for Christmas gifts anytime soon . . .

Anyway, so far things are looking like a 'go' for Covenant's April 2014 release date and I am just keeping my fingers crossed that turns out to be the case.  If any of you are curious as to why the delay, I honestly have no idea why either.  They just tell me when the release dates of my books are--we authors have a lot less control than you think we do.  >_<

But I should be entering final draft territory this summer/fall, and then it's off to copyediting, and then the rest should be history.

I would LOVE to reveal the cover but I have to wait for the go ahead. Honestly, though, I think it might surpass Archon's in the end, and that's saying something!

Look for more updates soon--hopefully one heck of a cover reveal is on its way!

Cover Reveal for Jason Jack Miller's: The Revelations of Preston Black

Hi readers and fans.  :-)  Today I have something special for you.  One of my good friends from grad school has recently published another novel in his supernatural Preston Black series and I've been one of the lucky people asked to participate in the grand cover reveal! TA DA!  Isn't this cover just so modern and spiffy?  hehe 

If you haven't heard of it, this is a great book series with a killer concept that should be welcome to fans of Archon or just thrillers of the paranormal kind in general.  Just read the description below, and be sure to check out more of Jason's books at his Goodreads page here: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/4729752.Jason_Jack_Miller

Coming June 2013 from Raw Dog Screaming Press
Cover Art by Brad Vetter
Preston and Katy face a new darkness.... Sometimes a battle between good and evil doesn't look much like the ones they show in movies. The good guys don't always wear white, and they don’t always walk away with the win.
And sometimes you're better off with the devil you know.
The last time Preston went down to the crossroads, his best friend died and he nearly lost his brother. But Old Scratch doesn't take kindly to fools, especially not those who come knocking at his front door. And before all is said and done, he's going to teach Preston a thing or two about what it really means to sacrifice.
