Sooo Excited — Check Out My New Cover for Warrior

What a magical moment I had last Wednesday. WARRIOR’s cover arrived from my publisher, which meant I spent the entire day printing off copies and pinning them around the house. Yep, my hubby and kiddies couldn’t walk anywhere without seeing the image. So, huge thanks to Renee Rocco of Lyrical Press NY for her skilful hand at cover-art.

Warrior is book two in my YA fantasy romance series. Each book features a new heroine and hero, and Warrior is the story of Hope and Silas. Although the characters from the first book, Protector, feature prominently throughout the second, so you’ll not miss catching up with Faith and Davio along the way. Also, as both the heroines from the two books are from the famed Wincrest line, the images of the two girls are strikingly similar. So, here it is, WARRIOR’s cover. I hope you enjoy.


WARRIOR ~~ Magio-Earth Book Two ~~ Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance.

COMING    ~~ November 4th 2013 with Lyrical Press NY.


WARRIOR’s blurb

To love and protect…across worlds.

On planet Magio, Princess Hope Wincrest, of Dralion is on a quest to discover the lost heritage of a mother she’s never known. While in the Australian Outback, her home away from home, her warrior father warns her she is about to meet an enemy protector whom she must work with to uncover her heritage.

Silas Carver, of Peacio on planet Magio, follows his soul’s call only to discover his soul-bound mate is an enemy of his people. Dralion and Peacio are at war. He demands Hope release him from their bond, and she will, after he helps her learn about her mother.

Eighteen-year-old Hope’s adult strength abilities are emerging and one of them could be deadly to her. She must lay her life in Silas’s hands during a journey deep into foreign lands. Theirs is a battle of the heart and of the land. Can the mated pair find their place with each other in a world at war?

Thanks so much for joining me in celebrating the release of my cover. I’m currently working hard on Book Three in the series, and having a blast writing Silvie’s story. She’s one fiery redhead who knows how to have fun. I should have this one ready to send out for submission at the end of May. So close. I can’t wait. If you want to drop me a comment, you know I love hearing from you.

I wish you all a safe and wonderful week. Catch ya later.

  1. Beautiful cover, Joanne! Renee does such awesome work. I’ve added Warrior to by Goodreads TBR list and am cheering you on with your deadline for book three.Congrats!

  2. Beautiful cover, Joanne. I love how it fits so well with the theme and feel of the first. It’s like each cover is a piece of a bigger whole. Hugs to you, and congrats!

  3. Looks great!
    My first thought was…she doesn’t look like a warrior so there must be something more to learn about this girl. That pulls me the reader into wanting to know more.
    Great cover!

    1. Hi Brian. Yep, that’s the princess heroine on the cover as you guessed. Many YA books feature the heroine on the cover if the story is narrated by them. 🙂 The plot? You’ll have to read the book when it releases to find out. 🙂 My lips are sealed.
