EEEEK!! Today I have the honor of showcasing the cover reveal for an up-and-coming author in the YA genre, A. G. Henley. Her first novel, The Scourge (Brilliant Darkness Book #1) came out last year. I contacted A. G. when I became interested in indie publishing. Since then, she has been a source of advice, support, and an all-around awesome person to know.

Besides being a total sweetie, her story-telling ability is A-MA-ZING. Fennel's voice, the complex characters, and the gritty and dangerous world of survivors she has created in this series make this tale one of a kind.

Without further ado, here is the beautiful cover and intro to the undoubtedly suspenseful, lovely, and compelling sequel, The Defiance!

Drum roll please......
COMING JULY 29, 2013

THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness, #2)

Suspicion Trust. Fear Compassion. Hate Love.

Fennel and Peree learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. Now they need to convince their people that everything they believe is a lie.

An impossible task, especially when someone seems resolved to try anything—even arson and butchery—to destroy Fenn and Peree’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties.

Unable to tell friend from foe and with the Scourge pushing both groups to the breaking point, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.

Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

The Defiance Publication Date: July 29th, 2013

While you're waiting for book 2, take the time to read The Scourge, Book 1 of the Brilliant Darkness series, available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It won't take you long, I promise. I couldn't put it down!

Author Bio:
A.G. Henley is the author of the BRILLIANT DARKNESS series. Her first book, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award.

A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they've had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she's not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she's inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado. Learn more at
