Filed under: Check-it-out, Community, Cover Art

Woo Hoo!!!! I know I’ve already said you must read REMOVED by my friend S. J. Pajonas. But really–you have to because Book Two, RELEASED will be available in December. If you read it than I’ll have people to whine and complain with while I wait for Book Two to come out. LOL!  Seriously, I need to know what happens next!!!!

But since I do have to wait, at least I can stare at something gorgeous while I’m pouting.

Today is the fabulous cover reveal for RELEASED!!!!


**Contains spoilers for those who have not read REMOVED!

Left in the desert to recuperate from her injuries, Sanaa Itami paces the floors and contemplates her mistakes. She trusted too easily, and now people she loved are dead, killed at the hands of men coming to assassinate her. Sanaa feels beaten, but life awaits her at home. While Nishikyō recovers from the earthquake, negotiations for Sanaa’s eventual rule on Yūsei continue. New allies must be made, new friendships brokered, new skills acquired — at all costs.
Life at the top of the chain is complicated and lonely, though. With relations in Sakai clan rocky and uncertain, Sanaa must learn to trust others again more than she’s willing. Who amongst the clans is left holding a grudge? And will the new family Sanaa has found with Jiro support or betray her?

From Nishikyō to Yūsei, RELEASED, Book TWO of the Nogiku Series, is the second book in a captivating New Adult post-apocalyptic romance series that harnesses the cultures and traditions of Japan and sweeps them in the future.

  1. Morning, Kim! And thanks for helping out with my cover reveal! I’m glad you like it 🙂 I really love unique covers and have found that ones with a theme special to that book or series really appeal to me. I love the Divergent covers and the covers of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies Series. They’re bold and one-of-a-kind. I’m turned off by all the recent white-couples-almost-kissing covers. They all look the same! But I know tons of readers are really drawn to people on covers. It’s a hard decision! 🙂

  2. I love that colorful cover! Really eye-catching. 🙂
