It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: Over Raging Tides (Lady Pirates #1) by Jennifer Ellision + Giveaway (US/Intl)

OverRagingTides_FC-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for OVER RAGING TIDES (LADY PIRATES #1) by Jennifer Ellision, releasing March 20, 2018. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Jennifer: 

Ahoy, YABCers!

…Sorry for the cheesy opener, but when you’re writing a pirate novel, you basically have to use corny nautical lingo. I don’t make the rules.

When Jenny of Seedlings Design sent me the finished cover of Over Raging Tides, I nearly squealed with joy. If I had any sort of coordination, I would have done cartwheels, pirouettes, grand leaps of ecstasy. As it was, I danced it out a little in my desk chair with a big grin on my face. The cover hit all the notes I was hoping for: it’s moody, beautiful, and lets readers know of the important elements of piracy and a lead female character at play in the book. I hope it strikes those same chords for you.

~Jennifer Ellision

OVER RAGING TIDES (LADY PIRATES #1)

By: Jennifer Ellision

Release Date: March 20, 2018

 
 
 
About the Book

The pirate crew of the Lady Luck lives by many rules, but chief among them is this: they do not allow men on board.

That’s a rule that quartermaster Grace Porter is willing to break when a shipwrecked young nobleman offers her information of an omniscient map, stolen from his warship by an enemy vessel. Until now, the map was only the stuff of legend… but with its help, Grace may finally be able to hunt down the Mordgris, the sea monsters who stole her mother away from her.

Unfortunately, some members of her crew have other plans...

To find the map and face the Mordgris, Grace will have to confront her past, put the Luck between warring nations, and uncover treachery aboard the ship. And ultimately, her revenge and the destruction of the Mordgris will come at a hefty price: the betrayal of her crew.

Grace promised them they wouldn’t regret this.

She just isn’t sure that she won’t.
