a blog for the wonderment in all of us
I’m super excited to have two covers to reveal for my fantasy romance series, Tales of the Black Court. My new cover artist, Viola Estrella of Estrella Cover Art, did a fantastic job keeping the essence of the series intact, but also adding some new twists. And that makes this twisted fairy tale romance author very happy.
If you’ve been waiting to find out what happens to Cassie after the end of PRINCE BY BLOOD AND BONE, you won’t have to wait much longer. BROKEN MIRROR will be out soon. I’m hesitant to pick a date since every time I do that fate jumps in and takes a hand, but it is coming. And soon. So, just to tide you over, here is the cover and the blurb!
A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court
by Jessica Aspen
Cassie MacElvy believes she’s a fae princess, but her life of pretty gowns and constant parties is an illusion. Trapped in a twisted spell, Cassie uses her psychic Gift to help the Black Queen hunt down the rebel Prince Kian and his human wife, never knowing she’s hunting her own sister. But when a handsome black-eyed fae kisses her, the fairy tale begins to crumble, and she tumbles down into a confused rabbit hole of memories and magic.
Bosco is the court’s fool and a womanizer, but secretly he’s a spy, looking for a missing human psychic. All he has to do is find her and hand her over to his mysterious employer, and he’ll finally have enough power to complete a quest he started nearly a hundred years ago. When he runs into a beautiful fae princess who shouldn’t exist, he knows something is very wrong in the Queen’s court. But lovely Cassie might be the only person who can help him achieve his quest, and Bosco decides he will root out all of Cassie’s secrets, even if it means losing her trust.
And that’s not all!
I know you all are dying for BROKEN MIRROR to be published, but it has so much editing and proofreading—and all that jazz—yet to go through, that it won’t be out for a little longer. BUT WAIT!
I’ve written a little prequel for all of you to tide you over. It’s titled, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, and it’s what happened to Cassie and her mother when they were torn from Bryanna’s arms in the first chapter of PRINCE BY BLOOD AND BONE. It’s not a romance, since Cassie doesn’t meet her hero until BROKEN MIRROR, but I think readers will love getting a behind the scenes glimpse into the backstory of both books.
And here is the fabulous cover that Viola did for THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR.
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR
A Fantasy Tale of The Black Court
by Jessica Aspen
When the Black Queen of the fae sends ogres to attack their safe-house in Albuquerque, the three remaining MacElvy witches are forced to use a mystical fae globe to escape. But things go very wrong. When Cassie comes-to her sister, Bryanna, has disappeared and Cassie and her mom are stranded in the lands of the fae.
With nothing but their magical Gifts to help them they must find Bryanna and make their way home through Underhill, a magical land where strange beasts, evil spirits, and fierce warriors stand in their way. Or will the evil Black Queen track them down and kill them before they can make it to safety?
Don’t you love the way Viola has Cassie behind that super cool Evil Queen mirror? And, thanks to my husband, Jeff, for suggesting that if it’s in a mirror, the image should be reversed. Don’t know why I didn’t think about it, but he’s the visual person in the family. I’m just the writer!
