Title: Virtue of Death
Series: Earthbound Angels #1
Author: Randi Perrin
Release Date: August 20, 2016
Presented By: Itsy Bitsy Book BitsSynopsis: At eighteen, Sera Moore chose to go to culinary school while a higher power selected her to become an angel, specifically, an angel of death. Now, twelve years later, Sera’s a successful baker during the day and performs her angelic duties at night. The only thing missing in her life is a man, but the last thing she wants is to fall head over wings in love. It seems her relationships are unable to survive once she reveals her nighttime activities, so it’s easier to not even bother. But when a tenacious food critic won't take a hint, can Sera lower her wings long enough to risk her heart one more time? Author Bio: Randi has spent her entire life writing in one form or another. In fact, if she wasn't writing, she'd likely go completely and utterly insane. Her husband has learned to recognize when the voices are talking in her head and she needs some quality time with an empty Word file (the key to a successful marriage with a writer). She lives with her husband, daughter, and four-legged children (all of which think they are people, too). A pop culture junkie, she has been known to have entire conversations in movie quotes and/or song lyrics.
One of the things I wanted to do with this blog is provide a platform for cover reveals and book announcements for other writers I know—especially debut authors. So if we've interacted either in real life or through social media, and you have a speculative fiction book coming out soon, please hit me up and let me help you out.
I'm thrilled to have Randi Perrin's VIRTUE OF DEATH as my first cover reveal. Due out August 20th, this will be the first (of hopefully many) in her Earthbound Angels series from romance press Hot Tree Publishing. I haven't read it yet, but I will definitely be picking up a copy, and probably in paperback, because just look at this gorgeous wrap!
The color scheme of this cover is what catches my attention, and the way that beautiful blue is echoed in Sera's eyes and necklace, but what really intrigues me is the ethereal nature of the angel wing. You can almost miss it if you don't look closely enough. I'm guessing that's entirely intentional, though, since this is the type of contemporary fantasy where supernatural creatures are still hidden from mainstream society. And I have heard Randi insist, "My angels don't have feathers!" So that wing makes me very curious.
I haven't read enough paranormal romance to really know the best comparisons, but I'm guessing if you enjoyed FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT by Darynda Jones or GRAVE WITCH by Kalayna Price, you're going to fall in love with VIRTUE OF DEATH.
