Vernal Greetings, Beardies!
Like Autumn stated in her latest post, this time of year is the best of all. It's a shame it doesn't last. Of course, here in Georgia, we've had seasonal confusions all of 2013 so far. Spring came early—I'm not complaining about that. Summer was confused by the stage directions in the script—it came late, started out mild, but then immediately grew cold and rainy; it rained most of the summer—I'm not complaining about that, either—but was scorching hot on the days with no precipitation.
And all of this to tell you that Autumn has been the most confused of all. The season, that is, not the contributor. The limbs of my cherry tree have been naked since mid-August; my azaleas (pictured above with our youngest chihuahua, Chanel), which blossom in spring and fall, have been in a state of constipated bloom since the end of June—their color, normally a huge burst of three or four shades of pink all at once, has been a comical display of sparse patches of pink, which have quickly wilted in the summer heat; and my river birches have been dropping leaves all summer—so much that it has looked like fall here since my birthday at the end of May. (And who said Fall didn't last forever? Oh, yeah, that was me!)

But enough about Georgia's seasonal dementia. Onto the real reason why we are here: a shiny new cover!
That's not it.
Many of you may remember Hannah's Book Spotlight on Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series) by Kenechi Udogu (if not, check it out when you get the chance)... well, on October 28th, Kenechi will be releasing Sentient (Book Two of the Mentalist Series). We have to wait a little longer to purchase it, but fortunately we don't have to wait until the end of October for a sneak peak of her newest title!
First, let's read a bit more about the author:
Kenechi lives in London and enjoys writing contemporary, fantasy/paranormal fiction and short stories (some of which she posts on her blog). She also hates the cold and hopes to one day figure out how to hibernate in winter.
Some of these titles include: The Other Slipper, The Summer of Brian, The Altercation of Vira, and The Yam Po Club.
You can connect with Kenechi at the following sites:
Alright, enough teasing... Without further ado, here's the beautiful, somewhat vernally-inspired cover of Sentient.
Mastering her Progressive Empath abilities isn’t going as well as Gemma hoped. In fact, months after finding out what she really is, she still has no clue what this truly means. All she can do is wait to see if any new abilities will eventually manifest. Things aren’t going great with Russ either. Unsure of how to handle her Sentient Link with him, she tries to integrate herself in his busy social life but struggles to adjust to her new circumstances.
When she is plagued by recurring nightmares, Gemma realises things are changing and knows she has to do something, fast. The arrival of two sets of strangers in town, both offering the much needed assistance she needs to unearth her powers, escalates the situation even further. Gemma attempts to decipher whose intentions are genuine, but does she have enough time to figure out who has her best interest at heart?
