It’s Ciara Knight Cover Reveal Day here at Gloria Richard Writes.

First, a word from our sponsor:

I have been on a mini  blog sabbatical. For those of you who noticed, the snark will rise again. Soon.

For those who didn’t notice…

Above was written by an evil gremlin while I slept.

I could offer a plethora of reasons, but I have a niggling problem.

Those who know me well  know I cherish fibs sneakily creative excuses. Worse, they wouldn’t hesitate to call me on it in comments.

The simple truth is I have a manuscript that must be complete before I cross the Pennsylvania state line in July. If I don’t, I’ll have to pay for lodging at my cousin’s house.

We now return you to regularly scheduled programming.

I am blessed to have a plethora of talented friends with accomplishments that leave me begging to feature them on my blog. Today is Cover Reveal Day for Ciara Knight’s new Novella. Her talent and achievements make it an honor to participate in unveiling the eye-popping cover for Weighted.

Please read on for links to Goodreads to add this to your TO-READ stack. If you don’t already follow Ciara, you’re missing updates from an author whose debut novel, The Curse of Gremdon, secured a Night Owl Top Pick and five stars from the Paranormal Romance Guild.

WEIGHTED, by Ciara Knight

Weighted is a young adult post-apocalyptic with paranormal elements. It is a prequel novelette to The Neumarian Chronicles. Book I, Escapement, will be released in 2013.

The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself.  It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

Her first love, besides her family, reading, and writing, is travel. She’s backpacked through Europe, visited orphanages in China, and landed in a helicopter on a glacier in Alaska.

Ciara Knight writes to ‘Defy the Dark’ with her fantasy and paranormal books. Her debut novel, The Curse of Gremdon, was released to acclaimed reviews, securing a Night Owl Top Pick and five stars from the Paranormal Romance Guild.
