Cover Reveal...for myself this time!

I've been hanging on to this cover for weeks and weeks, and it's been killing me that I can't share it. We're finally here--cover reveal day for my next novel, a fantasy book perfect for tweens and teens.This is my first mid-grade novel, and it was so much fun to write!


Adam Alfaro daydreams about magic, myths, and becoming famous for discovering the lost city of Atlantis. The only problem? He has to spend spring break in Africa while his mom works. To make it worse, everyone expects him to be friends with the annoying Clancy Pitt while he’s there. It’s dislike at first sight...until he realizes she might know a few secrets about Atlantis.
When he meets Nef, a spirited sea kelpie who needs help rescuing naiads kidnapped and left to die in an ancient mine, suddenly the strange creatures Adam dreamed of become all too real. And they’re after him. Can Adam, Clancy, and Nef fight their way through the maze of tunnels in the mine and reach the naiads before it's too late…

1000 words for 1000 followers!

Last week I had 935 followers on Twitter. I promised my followers I'd post 1000 words of any work in progress once I reached 1000. I thought it would take a few weeks, but my 1000th follower clicked on me this morning! I was so happy I let her choose which of my 3 works in progress I should post. She chose YA, so here you go! One thousand words from Freaked, the sequel to Psyched, to celebrate 1000. 

Friendly Writers and The Light Who Shines

You what's awesome about being a writer? Sometimes, just randomly, we meet other writers online, and they're completely awesome. Writers are the best and most supportive community in the world. Everyone is willing to help out and spread the word about each others' work. I met a writer named Lilo J. Abernathy on twitter yesterday, and she's totally representative of the writers I get to meet. Immediately she offered to help me get the word out about Psyched and tweet for me. When she sent me an excerpt of her book The Light Who Shines, I was hooked and I had to return the favor. This looks like an amazing read, friends. Here's a link to one of the excerpts she has on her own blog. I've posted a little snippet below, just for fun:

Nathan’s foul mood and abuse of Patrick is unusual. His typically jovial face is soured, and his smile lines twist in the wrong direction. My chest tightens at the pained look on Patrick’s face. My heart goes out to both of them, rea…

The End of Feeling

Now available: Cindy C Bennett's The End of Feeling

Benjamin Nefer seems to have it all. He’s the most popular guy in school, the star quarterback with college scouts looking at him, his grades are near the top of his class, he can get any girl he wants . . . but he hides behind his dream life to mask the nightmare of his reality.

Charlie Austin is the new girl. Forced to move in with a bitter aunt, she only wants to protect her fragile mom from the world’s cruelty. When Benjamin sets his sights on Charlie, she’s armored against his charm—friends warned her about Benjamin’s game of pursuing and then dumping a long line of girls, not caring about the broken hearts he leaves behind. She doesn’t count on how single-minded he can be when she refuses him, or how charismatic, easing into her life through what he claims is just friendship.
Benjamin thought he could keep Charlie in the same place he keeps all girls—something to be used and then discarded. But Charlie has as many secrets a…

Unbearable

Today is cover reveal day for best-selling author Sherry Gammon and the final installment in the Port Fare series! Whee!!! And this art is simply gorgeous. Ready to meet Tess (who makes a couple of brief appearances in book 2, Unbelievable) and find out where fate takes her and Booker?

Behold!

I get to sneak peek read through this, and Port Fare fans won't be disappointed! It's a good clean read--adult fiction, but nothing offensive is in it so YA and NA fans alike can sink their teeth into it. 
Book 3 of the Port Fare series, Unbearable, coming June 9, 2014!
