Waiting on Wednesday #5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

TBR Tuesdays #7

TBR Tuesday # 7

My good friend Sharrice from Reese's Reviews: My Addiction to Fiction came up with the idea of 'TBR Tuesday'

If you want to join in the fun, then just do the following:
From your book shelf or your e-reader, pick a book that you own that is still on your TBR list. Post it however you want to, then leave a link below so others can see what's waiting to be read.

This week for me its:

The Illumine Series

by Alivia Anders

"The wings were mine." 

Amazon bestselling author Alivia Anders' Illumine Series has captivated the world from page one. Featuring Illumine, Obumbrate, and Riven, readers can now experience the first three books complied into one action-packed volume.

Bonus: Includes Ethereal: An Illumine Series Novella, plus a short teaser for A Shard of Ice.

I was lucky enough to meet Alivia Anders at Utopya Con 2014. She was so nice and her books sounded really good. I immediately downloaded this trilogy and have been meaning to read it ever since. 


Leave a comment and tell me what's waiting on your TBR pile.

Mae I Design Kind Words
I accidentally stumbled across Regina about a year and a half ago when I got an email from another author.  She’s pretty much done my covers ever since then and she’s always able to capture each story beautifully. I swear I’m like a kid a Christmas time every time I get an email from her. It’s not just her art, though, that makes her truly amazing. She’s also a genuinely nice person and really does care that the cover turns out the way that you want it to (although, I usually fall in love with them from the very first take). I consider myself very lucky that I decided to click on the link to her website. So thank you Regina for being the awesome artist and person that you are and for putting up with my insane schedule. You’re like Wonder Woman. Seriously.

Regina came highly recommended to me by several authors and I was immediately able to tell why. Her instant professionalism, speedy replies and unique artistic talent is hands down the best I’ve encountered in the industry. She rocks. Whether it concerned my book covers, swag, or advertising merchandise, she delivered my vision within hours. Did I say she rocks? Well she does…hard.

Regina Wamba is simply amazing. Truly gifted and talented. Her cover art is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Even as I started writing novels, I knew I had to get a cover done by her. I didn’t care what she did with it because her mind is magic and I have to say I am 100% satisfied with my cover, and I can’t wait for any future covers I get from her. She’s great to work with, patient, understanding, and she takes her time on each one as if they are her babies. I would recommend her to every single author I know. She doesn’t disappoint.

I don’t know if I can express how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with Regina. She was a pleasure to work with and when I saw my finished book cover for the first time I was speechless. She captured everything and then some of what I envisioned for my story. I am completely in love with her work and I would recommend her to anyone. She was willing to go above and beyond to make sure I was happy. I already have more covers planned for Regina to do and I will continue to come back to her. Regina Wamba is a gem in my eyes and I trust her completely to make my books shine.
She has made me a fan for life.

Working with Regina was a pure pleasure! Regina took the time to listen to what I wanted and brainstormed to create something better than I could have ever imagined. I really believe it’s the cover that sells the book. You can only make one first impression and with Mae I Design you’re guaranteed to make the right one. Regina made sure to go above and beyond to make sure I was one hundred percent satisfied. Don’t hesitate, talk to Regina today!
