177 COMPULSION Cover Reveal and Signed Shatter Me Series Giveaway

Video Cover Reveal Teaser 

Are you ready to see the shiny new cover for COMPULSION? I'm beyond excited to share it with you. Watch the cover reveal video and you'll see it the way I'd love to introduce it. But if you're video-averse, that's okay. Read on. And please, please let me know what you think. I hope you love it as much as I do!



FROM BLOGGER TO AUTHOR

One of the reasons I really can't wait to hear what you think is that I've shared the whole path of this book with you. Or you've shared it with me. This blog is where I learned to structure and write a novel.

I only recently realized it's been almost four years since I started this blog with a friend. Back then, at a local SCBWI conference, a literary agent gave us an hour-long presentation on the necessity of blogging. But what would we blog about? Well, writing of course. That seemed the obvious answer. Um. Yeah. Obvious to us and every other writer who ever had a dream of publication.

As a writer, I assimilate information by writing it out. From the beginning, I used this blog as a sounding board to learn craft, to collect and assimilate the information I was discovering myself--information I was learning from so many of you. 

That's the great thing about the online writing community. We learn from each other. It's therapeutic to share the journey. I'm so thankful for all the support and friendship you all have given me and I'm happy to still be learning with you. The truth is, I'm still looking for the secret formula, the key to the alchemical process that will spin my straw words into gold.

Writing is magic, and we--all of us--are the magicians. What other profession lets someone weave reality out of nothing more substantial than imagination? I'm awed by the writers whose worlds become real for me. There must be a Loramendi, right? A Thisby Island, a Diagon Alley, a Night Circus. Of course there are mockingjays, and daemons, and how can there not be Grisha or a Mrs. Whatsit, or an Abhorsen?

As writers, we sit at our lonely desks and start the writing process with nothing more than a blank computer screen and a tickle in the back of the brain that will eventually spawn an idea, a page, a chapter, and a book.

But magic of any kind is elusive. Wrestling ideas is like fighting a dragon armed with nothing except a fork. A hobbit-sized fork.

I can't tell you how many times I wanted to give up over the years, and how many times I've forced myself to go on because I read something that one of you had tweeted, written on your own blogs, or left as a comment on a post here at Adventures. I've been strengthened and encouraged by the authors who've been lovely enough to come share what they've learned with us here. And I've been kicked in the ass when I needed it by friends I've made along the way.

The trip from blogger to author is both long and short. It's as hard to grasp as an idea.

If I've learned one thing over the years, it's that nothing you do can guarantee publication. But you're never going to be published if you don't try, if you don't stretch yourself to come up with the biggest, truest, most brutally honest and original idea that you can possibly spill onto a page.

I'm lucky to have found an agent and a team of people at Simon Pulse who see my idea for COMPULSION the way that I do, and I'm so, so honored and astounded that Watson Island is going to have the chance to become real for other people. I hope it becomes real for other people.

Today's cover reveal is one more giant step on the journey. I haven't quite reached the moon yet, but I'm definitely floating. And if this blog can be even a small part of helping someone else feel the way that I feel right now? That will make me even happier.

Wherever you are on your own path, I hope that seeing this happen for me convinces you that it is possible, that anything is possible.

Keep dreaming. Dream wildly, boldly, and with conviction.

 
ABOUT THE BOOK

COMPULSION
By Martina Boone
Hardcover
October 28, 2014
ISBN: 18732883
Simon & Schuster, Simon Pulse

Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient curse.

When loss is all you know, how do you find true love?

All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lived with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead—a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family's twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Prague and spoke several languages before learning English. My first teacher in the U.S. made fun of me for not pronouncing the "wh" sound right, so I set out to master "all the words”—I'm still working on that! In the meantime, I'm writing contemporary fantasy set in the kinds of magical places I'd love to visit.

If you like romance steeped in mystery, mayhem, Spanish moss, and a bit of magic, I hope you'll look forward to meeting Barrie, Eight, Cassie, Pru, Seven and the other characters of Watson Island.

  35. For me, one of the most rewarding parts of being a writer is seeing people's dreams come true. Seriously, what other profession does this happen so regularly? I feel so lucky to witness someone's hard work leading to that brilliant gem of a moment.

    It's even that much sweeter when it happens to someone who embodies what it is to be a passionate writer. You worked so hard, applied yourself in every way you knew how, supported others on the journey...and now finally you're going to live this moment. We are all so proud and happy for you!

    1. Ange, I couldn't agree more, and THANK YOU. It's wonderful how many times we've gotten to watch writers evolve online, and it never gets to be less miraculous for me. I know that statistically, the odds of getting published are incredibly small, but the online writing community truly seems to make it happen more frequently, because we see it. And you and Becca and Writers Helping Writers, (and the Bookshelf Muse) and your wonderful books helped me and so many other writers get the craft together that sets us up to have the publishable manuscript ready when lightning strikes. I really think that's the combo that creates the magic formula. I'm seeing so many wonderful pitches and first pages online. It's amazing! And I am sending you GINORMOUS hugs! And also thanks, for this comment, and for all you do, and for being a lovely friend! As always!

  86. The cover is beautiful, and makes me feel nostalgic in a way. It has a timeless quality to it, but also the colors are subdued, which makes it seem almost...sad. Thanks so much for such a great giveaway!

  96. Such a lovely, lovely post, Martina! The way you describe the magic of writing is exactly how I feel about it (although sometimes I have to remind myself of that fact when it all feels too hard). I'm so happy for you and your upcoming book release!
