YABC-cover-reveal-green

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

The Omen of Stones by Casey L. Bond,

releasing 3/13/2020!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hey, YABC! 

If you’re staring at your screen right now, unable to look at anything but the glorious cover of THE OMEN OF STONES, I am not judging you. Not even a little. That was my reaction when the talented Melissa Stevens of The Illustrated Author Design Services presented it to me. I might have drooled. Okay, I totally drooled. If you’ve read When Wishes Bleed, you know the magic of this world, the way it wraps itself around you and pulls you in. And you can blame Fate, or the stones on the cover, for entrancing you now. When you’re ready, wipe the drool and scroll down to enter the giveaway to win one of three signed paperbacks. Thanks for peeking at the cover today and good luck! THE OMEN OF STONES will release on Friday, March 13th and I hope you’ll check it out.

THE OMEN OF STONES

Casey L. Bond

Release date: 3/13/2020

About the Book

Spirit and Stone. Song and Sky. Fate and Future all align.

On my seventeenth birthday, I finally heard Fate’s voice. He whispered to me again and again, insisting I find the Omen of Stones. Having never heard of such lore, I thought I could ignore his pleas. The Summer Solstice proved otherwise. Being surrounded by fellow witches worked my magic up into a powerful swell that crashed and churned within me. As the energy crackled through my veins, I shunned my royal duties to follow the call of my heart.

Venturing beyond the safety of the Kingdom’s borders, I felt Fate nudging me toward a destiny I was eager to claim. Confidence in my craft blinded me from the ominous clouds of danger that roiled on the horizon.

Captured by purists dead-set on purging the Kingdom of magic and witches, my salvation came in the form of a mysterious girl who wielded stones like daggers. Something about her called to me, whispering we were stronger together, strong enough to stand against the dark forces threatening to crush my kingdom. Trusting Fate could jeopardize my heritage and my throne, but defying him could cost Omen’s life.

About the Author

Casey Bond lives in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She likes goats and yoga, but hasn't tried goat yoga because the family goat is so big he might break her back. Seriously, he's the size of a pony. Her favorite books are the ones that contain magical worlds and flawed characters she would want to hang out with. Most days of the week, she writes young adult fantasy books, letting her imaginary friends spill onto the blank page.

Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, the Frenzy series, and fairy tale retellings such as Riches to Rags, Savage Beauty, Unlocked and Brutal Curse. Learn more about her work at www.authorcaseybond.com.
