Cover Reveal: Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams

Anyone reading my blog lately has noticed I participated in the WIP marathon for the month of August, and that helped me really crack down on my writing goals. I wouldn’t have found out about the group if I hadn’t become Twitter friends with Emma L. Adams, one of the WIP marathon participants. She’s a MG/YA/NA author who writes some pretty awesome-sounding fantasy and paranormal stuff. So I decided to join in on her cover reveal today! This book sounds great, so let’s all check it out next month! Enjoy the pretty:


Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams 
(Darkworld #1)
Publication date: September 30th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy


Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn is one interview away from her future when she¬†first sees the demons. She thinks she‚Äôs losing her mind, but¬†the truth¬†is far more frightening: she can see into the Darkworld, the home of¬†spirits‚Äď and the darkness is staring back.

Desperate to escape the demons, Ash accepts a place at a university in¬†the small town of Blackstone, in the middle of nowhere ‚Äď little¬†knowing¬†that it isn‚Äôt coincidence that led her there but the pull of the¬†Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping demons¬†from¬†crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.

All-night parties, new friendships and a life without rules or limits¬†are all part of the package of student life ‚Äď but demons still stalk¬†Ash,¬†and their interest in her has attracted the attention of every¬†sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a¬†group of¬†other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could¬†offer the answers she‚Äôs looking for. The demons want something from her,¬†¬†and someone is determined to kill her before she can find out what it¬†is.

In a world where darkness lurks beneath the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be..


568Emma spent her childhood creating imaginary worlds to compensate for a disappointingly average reality, so it was probably inevitable that she ended up writing fantasy and paranormal for young adults. She was born in Birmingham, UK, which she fled at the first opportunity to study English Literature at Lancaster University. In her three years at Lancaster, she hiked up mountains, skydived in Australia, and endured a traumatic episode involving a swarm of bees in the Costa Rican jungle. She also wrote various novels and short stories. These included her first publication, a rather bleak dystopian piece, and a disturbing story about a homicidal duck (which she hopes will never see the light of day).

Now a reluctant graduate, she can usually be found in front of her writing desk, creating weird and wonderful alternative worlds. Her debut novel The Puppet Spell, published in 2013 by Rowanvale Books, is a fantasy tale for young adults and the young at heart, inspired by her lifelong love of the fantastical, mythology, and video games. Emma also writes supernatural fantasy novels for older teens and adults. Her next book, Darkness Watching, is the first in the upper-YA/New Adult Darkworld series, and will be published in September 2013 by Curiosity Quills Press.
