Lost Blood Cover Reveal!

Happy Halloween, everyone – what a perfect day for this cover reveal!

Once again, I’m thrilled with what my designer, Michelle (Facebook | Website), has created. She perfectly captured the atmospheric mood of the story and the world of Brannigan City.

Lost Blood will be my next release after Breaker and is the first book of CHANCER, my new mature young adult urban fantasy. A blend of supernatural mystery and horror, the series features high-stakes action, a strong heroine, a variety of rich magic, and a slow-burn romance over the series arc much like the Ondine Quartet. The Chancer world, however, is very different from the elemental one and the journey Delaney and Liam embark upon is a heart-pounding adventure laced with intrigue, danger, and excitement.

The dark setting of Brannigan City features a diverse mythology and a world in which humans co-exist with monsters. Lost Blood will release in 2015.

Without further ado, here it is!

LostBlood_500

 

They are the Strange, those born of magic, myths, and legends. Beings who defy scientific explanation, whose physical and mental abilities far surpass the limitations of the human body.

When they first appeared, the world resisted, frightened by their powers. But after decades of bloodshed, humanity finally accepted that the Strange were here to stay.

A tenuous peace exists. For now.

WELCOME TO BRANNIGAN CITY

Seventeen-year-old Delaney Corbeau is one of the Skilled. As a Chancer, she uses her magic to help humans find everything from misplaced keys and hidden heirlooms to lost pets.

She can find anyone and anything…except the two people she needs the most.

Liam Connelly is an Earth Shifter and son of Brannigan City’s Alpha. When his older brother goes missing, he must turn to his former childhood friend for help. Delaney’s the only person who can locate him.

The problem is they haven’t spoken in four years.

When a reclusive art collector hires Delaney to locate a stolen antique Japanese book, her path crosses with Liam once again. Soon, the simple retrieval job becomes something much more terrifying.

An old evil is stirring and it’s determined to punish every living being in Brannigan City, both Strange and human.

Delaney and Liam will have to work together if they want to survive.

Lost Blood is the first book in Emma Raveling’s new Chancer series, featuring two unlikely allies and a mysterious, thrilling adventure set in a dark world of monsters and magic.

Short Hiatus

newsI wanted to give you guys a quick update on what’s happening right now and the state of all projects.

Everything is absolutely insane here at Casa Raveling. As most of you know, my husband and I have been preparing for a huge international move from Spain to Hawaii over the past few months.

It’s the start of a new journey for both of us. My husband has accepted a position at the university there and although he’s traveled throughout the US multiple times (we met in New York City eleven years ago), it’s the first time he’ll be living in my country.

I grew up in Honolulu so for me, this is a homecoming. My mother still lives there and I’ve visited occasionally, both for work and to see her. But I’ve mostly been away from Hawaii for twenty years now, traveling and living on three different continents. My mother has had many health difficulties over the years and my husband and I knew that eventually we’d need to decide what to do.

When he was offered a fantastic position from my hometown university, it was as if everything came together in one serendipitous stroke. It was time for us to be there for her.

We’ve been in a state of flux over the past few months. My husband is Spanish so we’ve been waiting for his immigration visa to come through. It finally has and now we’re in a maniacal race to get everything done so we can move next week and he can begin work.

The household is currently in a state of complete and utter chaos. The movers are coming on Monday. I’ve been trying to arrange all the paperwork and requirements for shipping our dog abroad. Hawaii has very strict requirements for animal importation and I just found out my baby will have to be in quarantine for 4 months!

We’ve also been saying good-bye to family and friends here, finishing up with our jobs, getting a house and setting up what we can in Hawaii ahead of time, attending farewell parties, cleaning and packing up our home here, and frantically trying not to forget anything. If nothing goes off the rails, we’ll be flying out of Madrid next Friday (9 days…eep!).

So here’s the state of things:

  • Once we get on the plane to the US, I’ll breathe a huge sigh of relief. Until then, I’ll be slightly pulling back from the Internet because I just don’t have TIME. 0_0
  • FRIDAY READING: This will be postponed until things settle down in our new home at the end of the month. Right now, I’m estimating the next Friday Reading to take place at the end of the month.
  • LOST BLOOD: I will try my very best to post a new installment this weekend, but it may not happen until next week, after the movers have cleared out most of our home.

    After that, there will be another week hiatus while we move, settle into our new place, set-up internet, utilities, etc.

It’s a highly emotional, exciting, and stressful period for us. I hope to get back on track as soon as I can, if not by the end of February, then definitely in March.

Thanks for understanding while we go through this major life transition. You guys are awesome. 🙂
