Who We Were Cover Reveal


Cover Reveal 

Who We Were
A Contemporary Romance Novel

 By Christy Sloat 



 Christy Sloat usually dives into the paranormal realm when it comes to her books. She gave us; The Past Lives Series and her bestselling trilogy, The Visitors Series. One night she was trying to sleep and ignore the idea of a book that was beginning to haunt her. She threw off the covers and decided to write the layout of Who We Were, a novel about a young girl who finds out how one simple alteration in her summer could change her life forever.
Sloat wrote the book in under three months and is very happy to be able to say she has added a contemporary romance to her line up of books.
Here is the long awaited cover for Who We Were. Get the standalone novel September 15th published by Anchor Group Publishing.

                                                              About Who We Were
“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
 Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn't to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course ... until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.

Book Blast for Warrior

BOOK BLAST:  WARRIOR

Official Release Date: 7/13/14
This is the third book in the Order of the Spirit Realm Series.  If you haven't read them, start with BAIT.  It is free at most online ebook vendors such as Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Smashwords, etc.

This book begins two years after HUNTER ended.  Bay-Lee is fighting a Devil Tree while her mentor and boyfriend, Nick Gallos, watches from the sidelines.  Things are tense between them.  She wants to amp up their relationship, but Nick has put on the brakes.  He's got one foot out the door, and she doesn't know what to do about it.

WARRIOR brings about closure and change, some good and some bad.  Together, Nick and Bay-Lee will take on the werewolf pack that killed her mother, face their twisted pasts, and face a friend turned enemy.

Quotes from WARRIOR:

Bay-Lee: You never told me I wasn't supposed to kill it.  You told me I couldn't kill it.
Nick: I should have known you'd take that as a challenge.

Keisha: Oh, don't play Miss Innocent with me, girl.  It was your idea for me to trade places with Nick's banshee, but you've been wearing a pouty face ever since.
Bay-Lee: I don't have a pouty face.
Keisha:  Sure you don't.

Bay-Lee (after knocking Keisha down):  You hit on my boyfriend, so I thought I should hit on you.

Little girl:  There's a monster in my closet.

He added, "Reapers aren't supposed to care.They don't have compassion or love inside of them."
"But you're still human."
"Because of you!"  It sounded like an accusation instead of gratitude.  "I haven't lost my humanity because I still have you.  His facial muscles tightened.  "I can't keep living like this."
Nick threw the talisman down and stormed off, heading for the castle.
She scooped the talisman off the ground.  It was precious, even if it was malfunctioning.  Without it Nick wouldn't be able to stay with her.  She ran until she caught up with him.  Slipping it into his hand, she begged him to keep using it.  "At least until we find something else.  Please."
The purple half-circles beneath his eyes attested to his lack of sleep and made her want to cry.  She cringed when he slipped the thing around his neck.  Asking him to live like this was horrible, but she couldn't let him go, not yet.

Fun Fridays-Fireworks

This 4th of July I've been given the task to give a small snippet from my book that is due out September 15th that includes 'fireworks'. It just so happens that I have dedicated a scene including fireworks. So sit back and enjoy the small, but special scene.

We made the trek through the woods on a pathway that was no doubt built just for the family. The dock sat right along the water. The lake was still, showing the moon in its reflection like a picture. Nolan threw a blanket out and we both sat. With the other blanket he wrapped it around the both of us together. I held one side, he the other.
A loud crack sounded and the burst of fireworks shot up in the sky. It was the most perfect show I had ever seen.
“This is … just beautiful. Thank you for having me here tonight.” I leaned my head on his shoulder.
“It’s only beautiful because you’re here. Normally I sit here alone.”
I closed my eyes picturing a lonely Nolan. “You’ll never be alone again.”
“Promise?” He held his pinky in the air.
“Forever promise.” I looped my pinky around his.

Pretty exciting news!!!!!!

I hadn't told anyone this because there wasn't a definite in the plans but now that I know for sure, I'm telling everyone!
I've seen plenty of book covers out there in the writing world that have fabulous couples on them. So many creative artists take stock photos and create these beautiful covers to die for. And then....you end up seeing the same model on ANOTHER cover.
It's like a slap in the face to that other authors book cover. I think its kinda sad when you see two books with the same model on the cover and even sadder still when readers get turned off by this.
So I got to thinking and talking to my good friend Angie. She told me to contact the lovely and talented photographer; Tava from Georgia Skies Photography.
So I took her advice and did just that. I told her what I was looking for in this new book cover for, Who We Were. I explained that we would need a couple and I explained what they should look like. This girl delivered!
We have two models; Grayson and Jessie. Grayson is the epitome of country boys and fits my male character to a T. He's a football player, how perfect, and he's stunningly cute.
Jessie fits my female character so well that I think she was made to portray Sadie on this cover. She's blonde and tall and gorgeous.
The good news is that the photo shoot will happen this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm slightly excited, can you tell?
As soon as I can I will share the photos of this awesome shoot in some sneaky peaky's.
In the meantime go to Georgia Skies page on Facebook and give her a 'like'. Maybe if we're lucky Tava will tease you a little with some photo action between the models. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Georgia-Skies-Photography/146674588734694

Remember: Who We Were is coming out September 15th and I am looking for bloggers! If you're interested in sharing the book cover/participating in the release keep an eye on my Facebook page for the link

Fun Friday



Fun Friday post!! This weeks topic is :Travels – Where have you traveled as an author to promote your books?

I haven't ventured too far across the country for my book, yet. I hope someday to travel far and wide but for now the furthest I have gone is Charleston, SC for Y'all Fest.
If you haven't familiarized yourself with Y'all Fest you need to do so. It's one of the biggest teen book festivals in the South!
I was lucky enough in 2012 to be invited to Y'all Fest with my publisher, Anchor Group, to go and sign my books.
I was surrounded by some of my favorite authors including the ever fabulous Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia and Carrie Ryan.
I was nervous as heck while the fans came to our table and met us because it was my first big convention. But those teens and fans were so generous and sweet. I got to spend a little time checking out Charleston and the history in the beautiful city.
It was so much fun I went back in 2013. This time it was bigger and better with more authors and more fans. I met my super awesome fan-friend Lynn Shaw and got to see one of the fans from the previous year, LeAnn Luckett. What wonderful sweet girls they are!
While there I saw Lisi Harrison-if you don't know who she is, please get to know her- and I introduced myself. She was so awesome and bought my book and asked me to sign it for her. It was one of the best moments of my writing career because she was this big-time author who actually took the time to talk to me and buy my book. I'll never forget that, ever!
