And…Here’s Uta (Cover reveal and Pinterest Board)

It’s the big day! Finally, I can show you the cover for Blood Reunited!  If you have been following any of her quotes on Twitter, you may have been curious to see what my foul-mouthed ancient warrior queen looks like.  I adore this cover as much as I love all the Blood Vine series covers.  The art department at Omnific is so amazing!

Check it out here and let me know what you think!
Squee! Isn’t her crown of vines awesome!?! Also, now that the cover is live, I thought it would be fun to show you all my Pinterest research board.  I use Pinterest to consolidate all the images I use to help inspire my sense of place when my characters travel to exotic places, or when I need to carefully describe an item of clothing, or simply don’t know what something looks like and need to be able to explain it.  I’ve purged this board of spoilers, but it might give you an idea of the feel of the book!

And here’s the blurb, if you haven’t read it yet:

Brooding vampire halfling and biologist Bel Maras is determined to create a cure for the wasting disease that plagues his vampire family. His work becomes essential as the Hunters intensify their global and bloody campaign. When Bel’s cure fails, only his ancient and estranged godmother Uta Ilirije can help. But seeing the ice-cold Uta reveals something shocking–she is his bonded mate.

She may be a dangerous warrior, but Uta feels her failures acutely. She has been unable to protect her kind from Hunters, and vampires are dying out. Worse, she tied Bel to her long ago in an accident of blood, then abandoned him for his own good–a choice he has never forgiven. Many days, she is convinced Bel and the vampires would be better off if she just walked into the sun.

Biology has fated them to be mates. Now these old enemies must overcome their past to save the vampires and come to peace with the bond they never chose.

There’s a Goodreads giveaway going on for a signed paperback copy. Go ahead and add it to your TBR!

About Amber Belldene

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops…when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco

And…Here’s Uta (Cover reveal and Pinterest Board) — 3 Comments

  1. I loved the cover and can’t wait to read the next one.

    Funny thing, though. The first time Uta was mentioned in your books, I pictured an old hag, not someone pretty (at least, not until she made an actual appearance). I should have known better. I mean, they ARE vampires! Haha! :)

  2. Amber – Blood Reunited sounds fantastic! I just bought it on Amazon and look forward to reading it.

    I like your process of utilizing Pinterest. Brilliant! I’m going to try it with my current WIP.
