Super Exciting Cover Reveal!!!

After many months of writing and editing and more editing, I finally have something solid to show you guys! And I am absolutely thrilled. I have had this idea for a long time, but like most of my stories, it needed a lot of polishing to make it shine. This was hard to do while in school, but bit by bit, I pieced it together. I also cannot neglect to mention the help of my amazing beta readers. They called out my plot holes and my embarrassing grammar mistakes and helped me bring my novel up to performance level.

So without further ado, I am pleased to announce BEAUTIFUL BEAST!!!

My name is Kalista. They call me the beast.

Kalista has been cursed by a powerful sorceress and is now a prisoner in her own palace. As petals fall from an enchanted rose, her fate and the sorceress’s victory draw nearer. But Kalista refuses to be defeated so easily and uses her own magic to push against the bindings. Yet what if it is not enough and the only way the curse might be shattered is through the help of another?

When Arawn crosses into the beast’s domain, he has one motive: revenge for his brother’s death. But as he draws nearer to the beast and is surrounded by invisible servants, magical banquets, and an enchanted forest, he realizes that this beast is much more complex and much more human than he first thought.

As their paths intertwine, Kalista must risk opening her heart to another, while Arawn must learn to see past his hate and prejudice. Together, they struggle against spells, wolves, and time itself to break the curse. If they fail, Kalista will fall asleep and will never again wake.

My novel is finally in a place where I feel like I can push it out into the world. Therefore, I am in search of beta readers. My book is a 73,000 word YA fantasy entitled Beautiful Beast and it is a clean read (meaning no coarse language or sex). At this point, I’m just looking for general feedback. Anything will help. 

If you are interested, please let me know by sending me a message through my contact page and I will send you the first 3 chapters so you can decide if its something you would like to read. Lastly, I prefer to use google docs so you can make comments and suggestions; although, I am definitely open to other formats as well. 

Now without further ado, here is the blurb: 

My name is Kalista. They call me the beast.

Kalista has been cursed by a powerful sorceress and now is a prisoner in her own palace.
As petals fall from an enchanted rose, her fate draws nearer, but she refuses to be defeated so easily. With her own magic, she pushes against the bindings of the curse, yet what if it is not enough and the only way the curse might be shattered is through the help of another?

When Arawn crosses into the beast’s domain, he has one motive: to gain revenge for his brother’s death. But as he draws nearer to the beast and is surrounded by invisible servants, magical banquets, and an enchanted forest, he realizes that this beast is much more complex and much more human than he first thought.

As they collide, Kalista must risk opening her heart to another, while Arawn must learn to see past his hate and prejudice. Together, they struggle against spells, wolves, and time itself to break the curse because if they don’t succeed, the sorceress will win and will continue burning her ruthless path of destruction.

Thank you so much,

P.S. I would be open to doing a trade as well, as long as your book is a good fit for me.

P.P.S. If you would rather receive a completed copy in return for a review, just sit tight. A post about ARC’s will hopefully be out before too long.
