Cover and Blurb Reveal: Final Book in the Element Preservers

Since the publication date of the fifth and final book in the Element Preservers series is coming closer, I guess it's time to reveal the cover and blurb. I'm still having a hard time believing that this is really the final book, but I'm also excited for the spin-off series (if you haven't heard about it, the title of the series will be Tainted Elements and the title of the first book will be Different). I always thought the Element Preservers would have 5 or 6 books. It turned out the fifth book is the last one, but as I mentioned, I will continue to write about the world from the EP in my new series and some of the EP characters will also appear.

Anyway, if you got the paperback edition of one of my books, you know that the title of the final book is Indestructible. Yeah, I know, it's a long word. I always have to check five times to make sure I spelled it right. ;) I suppose you're reading this post because you want to see the cover and the blurb, so here it is:




Caught between life and death, Ria will do anything to return to the people she cares about. But if her enemies find her, she might discover that she is not as indestructible as she thinks she is, especially when she can no longer count on her elements to help her...



The fifth and final book in the Element Preservers series.












The expected publication date is January 2014. I don't want to give you an exact date because I don't want you to be disappointed if I change the date at the last moment, and I want to publish the book as soon as it's ready (and as soon as I'm ready to let go :D). All I can say is that it will probably be the beginning of January. If you want to receive a notification when I publish the book, sign up for my newsletter. If you have any questions, comments or anything, I'll be waiting. :D

Element Preservers Series Spin-off

Hi, everyone! If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you might have heard about my Element Preservers series spin-off. If you didn't, let me just say that I'm very excited about this new project because I want to keep exploring the world I created in the Element Preservers. Of course, some of the characters from the original series will appear in the new series too, but it won't be necessary that you read the Element Preservers first. So, are you as excited about this as I am? :D

If you are, I'd like to reveal the title of the first book in the new series:


Myspace Text - http://www.sparklee.com

If you can't see my glittery text, the tile is Different. And the title of the series will be: Glitter Text Graphics - http://www.sparklee.com

Tainted Elements! The series will have more magic, more action and more romance. :D I will give you more details as soon as possible, and I believe that will be sometime in January, after the publication of the final book (5) in the Element Preservers series. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. ;)

You can add the book on Goodreads: Different

Announcing New Books!

Hi, everyone! Would anyone like to know what I'm working on? Aside from writing the fifth book in the Element Preservers, I've been working on two new books and I'm really excited about them! The first one is a new adult contemporary romance and the second one is young adult/new adult paranormal romance. None of them have a title yet, but the paranormal romance is going to be a series, which will be called Deadly Destiny and it will be about vampires (who don't feed on animals, btw). Yes, I know everyone is tired of vampires, but not me. I'm not sure whether the contemporary romance will be a part of series or not, but I'll figure it out soon. Anyway, these books should be available for purchase by the end of the year. Of course, I'll need some help, so keep an eye on my blog. :)

You can already add the books on Goodreads:

Paranormal Romance:

An Update (Paperbacks and More)

It feels like I haven't updated the blog for ages, so I decided to share some news with you. :) First of all, I remind you that you still have a couple of days to enter my Summer Giveaway so you can win an ecopy of one of my books. Good luck to everyone and thanks for participating!

I have good news for the lovers of paper books; I'm working on paperback editions of all the books in Element Preservers series! It will take a little bit of time until I get everything right, but I hope they'll be ready soon. The paperbacks will be available through Amazon and Createspace only. I'm not sure if anyone is interested in paperback edition of Human, so if you are, please tell me. :)


I'm working on the fifth book of Element Preservers series. I still believe it will be the last one, but I'm not 100% sure. I'll see how it goes. If I have more of the story to tell, I will. I've always planned to have 5 or 6 books in this series, so I'll just see what happens. Right now I'm try to figure out whose POV the book will follow.

I'm working on two new books, but I don't want to say anything specific yet. :) I just want to say that I love these stories and I'm a little bit shy to share them with the world, so yeah... When I finish the final draft, I'll tell you more. :D

If you have any questions, I'm here to answer them. :) Happy reading!

Restless (Element Preservers, #4) Blurb!

I finally have the blurb for Restless, the fourth book in Element Preservers series, so here it is:


Being the president of the Element Preservers and going to university at the same time might be hard for Ria, especially when she isn't allowed to touch Adrian for most of the time. But when the government decides to use Ria as a distraction to pass a new law that many won't like, she has to find out what the government's true plan is before it's too late. Ethan, who pretends to be Ria's boyfriend and has his own agenda, certainly won't make things any easier for her.


If you have read all the books in the series before Restless, you're probably wondering who is Ethan, but don't worry, you'll find out. ;D I loved writing this book and I can't wait to share it with you guys. The editing phase is a bit slower this time because my betas and I have to reread all the books to make sure there aren't any inconsistencies, but I hope I'll have the publication date soon. All I know for now is that the book will be published in June.

Huge thanks to everyone who picked up Dangerous this week! It was nice to be in Top 30 for free books in the whole Kindle store, along with getting to number 1 in Free Teen Books, Teen Fantasy and Teen Romance. I hope you'll enjoy the book! And thanks, of course, to everyone who is reading my books, spreading the word, leaving reviews and contacting me! You guys are amazing. I love you all! :D *hugs*

Restless (Element Preservers, #4) Cover Reveal!

The cover for Restless, the fourth book in Element Preservers series, is ready, so I wanted to share it with you. :) I love covers that say something about the book, so this one says something about Ria's story too. It's a little bit hard to believe that I'm already revealing the cover for the fourth book, but here it is:


I hope you like it. The release date for the book is June 2013. I don't have the exact date yet because my betas and I are still fighting over a certain plot line. :D I will reveal the blurb soon too. Just need to tweak it a little bit.

Oh, and before I forget, thanks to everyone who participated in Elle Casey's Springtime Indie Book Giveaway! I have sent the copies of my books to the winners, so please check your emails and spam folders. Congrats and happy reading!

Title Reveal for Book 4 in Element Preservers!

Hi everyone! Like I said on Facebook, I will reveal the title for the fourth book in Element Preservers series today. I had another title in mind for this book, but another book with elemental magic has that title, so I decided to change mine to avoid confusion. Actually, this new title fits the book even better. :D Now let's get to the title:


google logogoogle logogoogle logogoogle logogoogle logogoogle logogoogle logogoogle logo

 If you can't see the glittery/burning letters, the title is RESTLESS! I hope you like it. I will reveal the cover and blurb sometime in May, and I believe the book will be ready for publishing in June. :D

No One (Element Preservers, 3.5) is Now Available!

Hi, just came to tell you that No One, the Element Preservers novella, is already available on:

Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/301170
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C45HLFG
Kobo:  http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/No-One-Element-Preservers-Series/book-CSgEqTA1nkWmNCYWRUaTYQ/page1.html?s=UrVZKSu9Z0m0oZ5j4YmZuw&r=5
Apple/iTunes:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/no-one-element-preservers/id630894944?mt=11
Diesel: http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/item/SW00000301170/Linwood-Alycia-No-One-Element-Preservers-Series-Book-3.5/1.html
Barnes & Noble:  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/no-one-alycia-linwood/1114999414?ean=2940044415720


If you are buying your books on Barnes & Noble, Sony, or others, I'm not sure when exactly the book will be available there, but it shouldn't take longer than a couple of days or weeks, depending on the retailer. I have no control over the process, so I can't give you the exact date, but I'm going to post the links here as soon as I have them. Sorry for the inconvenience.



More about the book: Warning: This is the book 3.5 in Element Preservers series and should be read after book 3 since it contains spoilers for the first three books in the series. The novella has approximately 18000 words (74 pages).

Aware that Ria's condition is getting worse, Adrian is determined to do whatever it takes so he can touch her again without weakening her, and the only ones who might be able to help him are his greatest enemies. Haunted by the memories, he has to get the information he needs without putting his live in danger, but that is easier said than done... Especially if there is no one you can trust.

No One Cover Reveal, Publication Date and Blurb!

Hi, I promised on Facebook that I would reveal the cover for the Element Preservers novella today, so that's exactly what I'm going to do. First of all, I have to say that there is no one on this planet who looks like Adrian. No one. :D Or at least I wasn't able to find that person. Anyway, if you don't know already, No One is a novella written from Adrian's point of view and it follows the events after book 3 and before book 4 in Element Preservers series, mixed with events from Adrian's past.

Ok, now that I explained that, here is the blurb:

Aware that Ria's condition is getting worse, Adrian is determined to do whatever it takes so he can touch her again without weakening her, and the only ones who might be able to help him are his greatest enemies. Haunted by the memories, he has to get the information he needs without putting his live in danger, but that is easier said than done... Especially if there is no one you can trust.

No One is a novella (it's shorter than a book). It is book 3.5 in the series, which means you aren't supposed to read it unless you read the first three books in the series. You wouldn't only spoil yourself, but you'd also be confused, so you better read Dangerous, Runaway and Divided before reading this. :)

Great, let's talk about the publication date. I believe the novella will be ready for publishing by the end of this month, so the expected publication date is: March 30. If you want to be notified when I publish the novella, subscribe to my newsletter here: https://tinyletter.com/AlyciaLinwood

I believe I told you everything I wanted, so I should reveal the cover. No, wait, I'm too scared to do it. You're all going to hate it. Here it is:

Any comments? Questions? Thoughts? Anything? :D

Newsletter!

Hi, I hope everyone is doing well. Since I know how hard it is to keep track of new releases, I decided to create a newsletter. Now you can subscribe and receive a notification when I publish a new book. I won't send you anything else or any updates about the books, only a notification that my newest book has been published. So, if you subscribe now, you'll receive an email when I publish No One, an Element Preservers novella. For cover and blurb reveals, publication dates and other things, follow my blog.

As I said, I will only send out those emails when I publish a new book in Element Preservers series or a book in my new series. I'm aware that the book won't be immediately available at all retailers, so I'll probably only send you links for the sites where the book is available on its publication date. It would be a problem to manage more lists for every retailer and I don't want to send out the newsletter each time a new link appears, so I'll have only this one. Anyway, if you don't want to worry about the publication dates of my books, subscribe to the newsletter and you'll know exactly when I publish a new book! I hope I created this right. Here it is:

An Element Preservers Series Update + Novella Title

Hello everyone, I'm almost done writing the Element Preservers novella told from Adrian's point of view. Of course, I still need to edit it and send it to my betas, so the publication date should be somewhere in March. Now let me tell you something about the novella. It is written in the first person and it's from Adrian's point of view. It follows the events that happen after book 3 and before book 4, but it also describes some events that happened to Adrian before book 1. It's basically a mix of present and past. The present part happens between book 3 and 4, and the past is... well, the past (before book 1). :D Let's just say that the events from the present trigger Adrian's memories. If you read Divided (book 3), you know how it ended, and in this novella, Adrian tries to find a way to fix things. And of course, you should read the novella only if you read the third book because the novella has huge spoilers for Divided and some things would be confusing.
I guess it's the time to reveal the title of the novella so I don't have to call it novella all the time. The title is....


Glitter Text Generator
If you can't see the glittery text, the title is No One. Yes, my first title that has two words, not one. It's crazy, right? :D Anyway, I hope you like it. It really has a lot to do with the story. If you have any questions, leave me a comment here. The cover and blurb reveal should be soon too, but I don't have the date for that yet. :D
