Writing is hard on the emotions. It can be amazing, wonderful and soulful. Or the next day (minute, hour), it can be horrible, slow and heart-wrenching. But there are people out in the world who do things to help other writers deal with these emotions, even while trying to keep writing themselves. One such person is Brenda Drake.
Brenda runs contests such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness. She also donates her time as a prize in other people’s contests. She spends hours on twitter and FB always helping other writers. It’s amazing she has enough time to write her own books.
But write and publish she does! Here’s Brenda’s bio: Brenda grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
I love fantasy (being a fantasy writer myself) so I’d like to give back to Brenda, the giver, and spread the word about her upcoming book, Guardian of Secrets (Library Jumpers, #2). Today is the cover reveal for the book. Ready? Ba Dum Tss:
Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.
Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.
And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.
Maybe. If she survives.

Brenda Drake’s thoughts on the cover:
I had an idea of what I wanted the cover of Guardian of Secrets to look like the entire time I was writing the story. I was delighted (I might have screamed) when the cover showed up in my email and it was EXACTLY what I’d imagined. I love that it’s blue since part of the setting of the book takes place in a cold climate. I’m thrilled the couple is on it, too. They resemble the characters I’ve created in my mind perfectly. The cover is so beautiful, and I’m beyond excited to share it with everyone!
