Tied by Laney McMann: Cover Reveal

Photo credit to Eric Riesch Photography

I am a Young Adult writer of dark fantasy, mixed with a spike of romance, a hint of history, and a dash of mythology.  I sort of fell into this industry backwards. My intention was never to write novels for public eyes, although I have always written. Mostly poetry and short stories.
In 2010, I began writing The Fire Born Novels and completed the first in the trilogy, TIED, in 2011. A dark fantasy/paranormal romance, scheduled for release in September 2013 with J. Taylor Publishing. Check it out on: Goodreads
The second book in The Fire Born trilogy, TORN is under way and scheduled for release in 2014.
I have been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember. Judy Blume sucked me in at an early age and Anne Rice tightened the grip in my early twenties. My vices are YA fantasy, paranormal romance, historical fiction, mythology and sci-fi.
 I love exploring other worlds and seeing things in a different light — from a different angle. I am a former classical dancer, music snob, chef, right-brained thinker to a fault, and a notorious second-guesser. I love tea, hate the winter, and when I’m not writing, I can be found running. Maybe. Which I really enjoy. Sort of. <!--[if gte vml 1]> :)

Back of the Book  

Normal people don't believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either. 

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares. 

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn't know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first. 

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal  of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough ... away.
