Author Spotlight: Jennifer Allis Provost


Happy 2014!!! I am thrilled to start off the New Year with a new Author Spotlight. In truth, I was planning on blogging yesterday. But, this stupid illness-from-doom isn't quite gone so my blogging time may be somewhat limited. I am really trying to focus on daily writing commitments first, and blogging as I can fit it in...


Okay, back to the spotlight - 

Today I am featuring Jennifer Allis Provost and her books, Cooper Girl and Cooper RavensBefore I introduce Jennifer's books, here is a little more about her:

Jennifer Allis Provost is a native New Englander who lives in a sprawling colonial along with her beautiful and precocious twins, a dog, two birds, three cats, and a wonderful husband who never forgets to buy ice cream. As a child, she read anything and everything she could get her hands on, including a set of encyclopedias, but fantasy was always her favorite. She spends her days drinking vast amounts of coffee, arguing with her computer, and avoiding any and all domestic behavior.  

Once again, I have a few questions Jennifer was kind enough to answer: 



  • What are your writerly goals for 2014? Oh, I have quite a few of them for 2014. The sequel to Copper Girl, Copper Ravens, will release in June, and I will be releaunching my fantasy series, The Chronicles of Parthalan, around the same time. I have an Indiegogo campaign up to help with the latter; learn more about it here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-chronicles-of-parthalan.
  • If you good do some OTHER artistic endeavor in 2014, what would it be? In 2012 I bought myself  digital drawing tablet, and haven't yet found time to use it. So, my answer is delve once more into the visual arts.
  • What author would you love to write a book with and why? Oh, I think I'm too much of a control freak for that to end well. However, I would ump at the chance to work with Robin McKinley. I first encountered her work in the fourth grade, and I've been a devoted fan ever since.
Here is a little bit about Jennifer's books: 
Copper Girl blurb:
Sara had always been careful.
She never spoke of magic, never associated with those suspected of handling magic, never thought of magic, and never, ever, let anyone see her mark. After all, the last thing she wanted was to end up missing, like her father and brother.
Then, a silver elf pushed his way into Sara's dream, and her life became anything but ordinary.
Copper Ravens blurb:
Sara should be happy.
She has what every girl wants: a man who loves her, a beautiful home, and wealth beyond imagining. She rescued her brother from the Peacekeepers, destroyed the Iron Queen, and doesn’t have to go to her boring job any more.
And yet… Sara still doesn’t know if her father is alive or dead. Her mother hides in the garden, brooding about her missing husband. Her sister, the Inheritor of Metal, is scared of her own shadow, and her brother spends his days fighting and gambling. To add to Sara’s misery, the new queen (gold, of course) is more than a bit crazy, she misses her life in the Mundane world, and, worst of all, Micah wants to have children. A lot of them.
As Sara wavers between happiness and homesickness, a conspiracy emerges against the Raven clan, implicating them in a plot to dethrone the Gold Queen. How can Sara prove her family’s innocence, and become the consort Micah needs her to be, without losing herself in the process?

So excited to read these!!! And those covers - WOWZA!

Next week I am featuring Dorothy Dreyer on the blog. I hope you will join me!

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:


Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…
