[Cover Reveal]: "Sacrifice"

Today I'm excited to help reveal the cover for Brigid Kemmerer's next release, SACRIFICE! 


Brigid Kemmerer was born in Omaha, Nebraska, though her parents quickly moved her all over the United States, from the desert in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the lakeside in Cleveland, Ohio, and several stops in between, eventually settling near Annapolis, Maryland. Brigid started writing in high school, and her first real “novel” was about four vampire brothers causing a ruckus in the suburbs. Those four brothers are the same boys living in the pages of The Elemental Series, so Brigid likes to say she’s had four teenage boys taking up space in her head for the last seventeen years. (Though sometimes that just makes her sound nuts.)

Brigid writes anywhere she can find a place to sit down (and she’s embarrassed to say a great many pages of The Elemental Series were written while sitting on the floor in the basement of a hotel while she was attending a writers’ conference). Most writers enjoy peace and quiet while writing, but Brigid prefers pandemonium. A good thing, considering she has three boys in the house, ranging in age from an infant to a teenager.

While writing STORM, it’s ironic to note that Brigid’s personal life was plagued by water problems: her basement flooded three times, her roof leaked, her kitchen faucet broke, causing the cabinet underneath to be destroyed by water, the wall in her son’s room had to be torn down because water had crept into the wall, and her bedroom wall recently developed a minor leak. Considering SPARK, book 2 in the series, is about the brother who controls fire, Brigid is currently making sure all the smoke detectors in her house have batteries.

Brigid loves hearing from people, and she probably won’t refer to herself in the third person like this if you actually correspond with her. She has a smartphone surgically attached to her person nearby at all times, and email is the best way to reach her.

Series: Elementals, 5
Genre: YA Paranormal

One misstep and they lose it all. For the last time.

Michael Merrick is used to pressure.

He’s the only parent his three brothers have had for years. His power to control Earth could kill someone if he miscalculates. Now an Elemental Guide has it out for his family, and he’s all that stands in the way.

His girlfriend, Hannah, gets that. She’s got a kid of her own, and a job as a firefighter that could end her life without a moment’s notice.

But there are people who have had enough of Michael’s defiance, his family’s “bad luck.” Before he knows it, Michael’s enemies have turned into the Merricks’ enemies, and they’re armed for war.

They’re not interested in surrender. But Michael isn’t the white flag type anyway. There will be blood on the ground tonight…

Oh MY . . . *thud* Those eyes! The sexy stubble. MICHAEL I LOVE YOU! *Ahem* I mean, I love your cover . . . Okay, and perhaps I want to hunt down this cover model . . . 

I love this cover, it's my favorite of the series, hands down! Let's see if it can become my favorite book of the series (that's a very close three-way tie between Gabriel, Hunter and Nick's books . . . sorry Chris!). Needless to say, if you can't tell from my fan girl excitement and my gushing reviews (above), I LOVE this series and I am dying to get my hands on Michael. Er, his book. :D

Oh, and as a bonus, here is the Australia/New Zealand cover -- also nice, but I like the US  cover best!

Have you read this series yet? NO?! *shakes head* Shame on you!


Until Next Time,
