I am super thrilled to show you the beautiful cover for my newest and upcoming novel, Entertaining Angels. Again, my cover artist was Natasha Brown, and she is super talented. She brought my disjointed vision to life, and I don't think I'll ever be able to thank her properly.
I can't wait to publish it, which I'm hoping will be in May. That's what I'm estimating anyway. But, I couldn't wait any longer to show you my beautiful cover!
About Entertaining Angels:
Madison Andrews can’t face her reflection in the mirror. All she sees is a big, fat nobody. Yet, deep inside she longs for something more, something that’s not skin deep.
Along comes Zach, the new guy in school. He’s smoking hot and totally out of her league. She somehow catches his eye, and he makes her feel beautiful for once. But just as she gets close to Zach, her nerdy best friend, Chase, won’t let Madison doubt her true beauty, no matter how many meals she skips.
Even as Madison begins to realize that she is more than what she thinks, darker forces are at work, darker than the lies and mocking from her peers, stopping her from amounting to her full potential. Can Madison find true happiness in her own skin?
Are you a book reviewer? If so, please sign up for an ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) of my novel here.
Emerald Barnes graduated with a B.A. in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing at Mississippi University for Women. She resides in a small town in Mississippi and has the accent to prove it.
She mainly writes suspense/thrillers in the YA genre, but she dabbles in other genres and her books are enjoyed by all ages! She's constantly working on new novels and has more ideas than she knows what to do with. She blogs which takes up more of her time than she anticipates but loves it so very much! She's also a volunteer at the World Literary Cafe which is amazing, and she is a crazy grammar nazi who proofreads novels!
She's an auntie to three beautiful nieces and two handsome nephews who take up the other half of her time, but she couldn't imagine spending her time in any other way!
She's a Whovian, a little bit of a nerd, a reader, a writer, and a family-oriented person. God is number One in her life, and she thanks Him continuously for His love and favor.

I wanted to announce that the Virtual E-book fair on FaceBook has become a weekly event. If you enjoy reading, here is your opportunity to interact with authors, read excerpts of their books, and WIN FREE STUFF! That's right, there will be GIVEAWAYS every week.
Stop by the FINDING MY ESCAPE booth and ask the characters questions. Hannah and Matt will be there to talk to you.
Hope to see you there!
When I was a younger reader, I always had a few favorite authors. Each time I finished one of their books, I'd go back to the library or book store and eagerly peruse the shelves for another one of their titles. I'd read until I'd read them all, then I'd ask my friends what they were reading. You see, I was unwilling to take a chance on a new author unless I was sure I would like their writing style.
Maybe you feel a little like that. After all, even more than money sometimes, your time is an investment. You don't want to take your precious leisure time and waste it. That's why I've always found it hard to experiment when it comes to my reading.
Well, if you're like me, a little hesitant when it comes to trying out a new author or genre, then I may just have the perfect opportunity for you.
I wanted to invite everyone to come join me tomorrow for a new weekly event called Share An Sample Saturday. It's a wonderful chance to connect personally with authors, GET FREE EXCERPTS for books you're thinking about buying and win door prizes! That's right folks, free books! I participate as an author, but I'm always trolling through the selections for my next great read. You see, I'm finally learning to take a risk and try something new.
Come on and let's take the plunge together.
Finding My Way Back, which is the tentative title of the sequel to Finding My Escape, is expected to be finished in draft form by mid-April 2013. I'm shooting for April 15, give or take a few days. Hopefully (keep your fingers crossed), we'll have the book edited and out by mid-summer.
Here's where you come in. I'm looking for beta readers, and I'm going to be choosing one person who posts a comment or question to this site and one person who comments on my blog Eclectic Musings to be among the first to read it. The only requirement is that you've also read Finding My Escape.
Tell your friends! I look forward to hearing from you.
That's me. Wife, mom, former teen, and writer.
