Introducing: Anna Soliveres & Violet Storm (+ Giveaway!)

Gor-geous!!!

The above is my one, hyphenated word for Violet Storm's cover. =)


VIOLET STORM
YA Science Fiction
Release Date: Friday, March 28, 2014

A champion athlete with all the skills of a fighter, augmented to become a weapon that will change the fate of our world.

A brilliant surgeon known for his invention of Modi’s—the only cure for the deadly disease, vaincre—has gone rogue with his experiments, and the Monarchy is desperate to shut him down. That's where Aeva Storm comes in, a champion athlete with an ego to match. Aeva is the surgeon's secret weapon against the Monarchy. And they'll never know what hit them. After reconstructing her body to become a Modi unlike any he's ever created, Aeva is forced into a fight against all odds. She'll have to break loyalties, hurt family, and turn her back on newly awakened love. Thousands of lives hang in the balance in a battle that will set forth a new era.

Join Aeva on her quest to see whether she's got what it takes to go up against the most powerful humans ever created.

It sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Plus, Anna has shared w/us some intriguing images that go along w/her publishing journey, and her thoughts about them:


This was a fun way to leave an impression with new acquaintances who were interested in learning more about the book.

About the author: Anna Soliveres has always been a storyteller but it wasn't until her early twenties when she began writing novel length works. The result was an enthusiasm to get better at the craft until her work could be shared with the world. Releasing in March 2014, Violet Storm is her debut novel. Anna is currently working on another young adult science fiction series, titled Snow Dolls, set to release in late 2014. To learn more, please visit her at www.annasoliveres.com.

Also, as most you have probably figured out, I enjoy sponsoring giveaways whenever I have an author stop by. But I have never tried to find a giveaway to go along w/a science fiction novel and... was at a bit of a loss. So instead, the giveaway to celebrate Violet Storm's release day will be a $5 Amazon gift card. And don't miss the chance to stop by Anna's blog to enter another giveaway there as well too! 

As always, just comment to be entered to win, and please follow Anna at one or more of her social media links. The winner will be announced April 2nd. And last but not least- Congrats, girl! =)
