Debutante Ball, a Feast of Debut Authors

Announcing Darkspell YA Paranormal Romance by Elizabeth Mueller!

Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . . until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold.

As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter's protector against the darkness that hunts her. Violently thrust into a magickal realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own.

"Darkspell is one of those guilty pleasure books that keep you turning pages. Elizabeth Mueller tantalizes the reader with healthy doses of romance, mystery and magic unlike any other. The perfect read for anyone 13 and up who wants to curl up with a good book." SB Niccum, author of Veiled

"Elizabeth Mueller gives a great story, full of normal teen angst without tipping the scales to be annoying, she keeps up guessing, dropping nuggets for us throughout the story, but never tipping her hand. Combine that with the fantastic use of illustrations that give it almost a graphic novel feel as we read, and this is easily a five star read. I can’t wait to pick this up in paperback and you should too! Mueller is a great addition to the YA world and I can’t wait to see what comes next from this talented writer!" YA BookBabes

Pick up your very own copy of Darkspell, YA Paranormal Romance at Amazon,or your very own signed and numbered copy here for only $12.75 for Christmas! Read sample chapters here!

If I was sucked into Darkspell, I'd be Winter! She starts off as a happy-go-lucky teen who endures the tragedy of betrayal along with the death of her beloved friends, but she discovers a hidden secret that may save them all.

Every author wants their book turned into movie! I'd choose Amanda Seyfried as Winter!
