Heather McCorkle Cover Reveal - To Ride a Puca

Today, I am happy to host my blog buddy, Heather McCorkle, and the Cover Reveal Tour for her newest release. If you don't know Heather, you are really missing out!

Heather: I'm so excited to share the cover of my young adult historical fantasy novel, To Ride A PĂșca, with you. I've been waiting for so long to reveal the news and the cover that it's been driving me crazy! This novel is special to me, as many of you know, because it felt like my heart and soul has gone into it. It isn't a part of the channeler series, though it is a tie-in novel as it's about one of Eren's ancestors. This is a stand alone of a very different flavor and I hope you love it as much as I do.

Here is a bit about it:

Invaders are coming to take what isn't theirs, again.

Neala wants to stand and fight for her homeland, but as one of the last druids, she may be standing alone.

Persecuted, hunted down, forced to live in obscurity, the druids have all but given up. Can the determination of a girl who has barely come into her power bring them together? Or, just when she finally finds her place among her kind, will they end up losing a homeland their very magic is tied to?
This novel is intended for mature teens and adults as it contains some difficult subject matter. 

I had to throw that warning in because I had one person who was disturbed by some of the subject matter in The Secret Of Spruce Knoll. To Ride A PĂșca is a much darker novel than Spruce Knoll and will certainly not be appropriate for some readers. Slavery, oppression, and violent situations are within this novel. It certainly falls under the dark YA catagory. But it is also about hope, love, and belonging. It releases this May

OOO. This looks good. I haven't read anything about the Druids since THE MISTS OF AVALON...and never anything in YA.

Poor Neala!! What a great blurb - thanks Shannon for the info!! Take care

Heather said...

Jennifer, thank you! The scarcity of the subject was part of what made me want to write about it so much. I hope you enjoy it!

Old Kitty, indeed, she is in for a life-changing even for sure. Glad yo liked the blurb!

Heather said...

Thanks for your comments everyone! And thank you for the feature Shannon.

Oh Elana, this is a stand alone tie-in novel about one of my main character's from Spruce Knoll's ancestor. Technically it's a channeler novel, but it isn't part of the series. :)

Karen Harrington said...

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog today! Only a matter of time until I offer YOU congrats as well. xo

I still have to read The Secret of Spruce Knoll. I have it, I just haven't read it yet. Looks like I'd better hurry up before this one comes out. :)
