Cover reveal of MARTYR

Today, I have a cover reveal for Martyr by Alex Kahler.

Here is the book blurb:

Three years have passed since magic destroyed the world.
Those who remain struggle to survive the monsters roaming the streets, fighting back with steel and magic—the very weapons that birthed the Howls in the first place.
Tenn is one such Hunter, a boy with the ability to harness the elements through ancient runes. For years, the Hunters have used this magic to keep the monsters at bay, but it's never been enough to truly win the war. Humans are losing.
When Tenn falls prey to an incubus named Tomás and his terrifying Kin, Tenn learns there's more to this than a fight for survival. He's a pawn in a bigger game, one with devastating consequences. If he doesn't play his part, it could cost him his life, his lover and his world.

To which charity should A.R. Kahler donate a portion of his proceeds from MARTYR?
The Trevor Project
To Write Love on Her Arms
Poll Maker

The Author:

Alex is many things, but first and foremost, he's a Sagittarius.
In the past few years he's taught circus in Amsterdam and Madrid, gotten madly lost in the Scottish wilderness, drummed with Norse shamans, and received his Masters in creative writing from Glasgow University. And that's the abbreviated list.
He is the author of the tantalizing CIRQUE DES IMMORTELS trilogy, which debuted in 12/12 from 47North. MARTYR, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series, THE HUNTED, will be published 10/14 by Spencer Hill Press.
When he's not writing or climbing in the rafters, he's probably outside, staring at the clouds. And seeing as he now resides in Seattle, there are clouds aplenty.
He can be followed on Twitter @ARKahler or at

Do teens go to dances anymore?

I never went to a dance in high school. They were generally held on Friday nights, when I had a job. I never went to prom either.

At the time, I didn't think that it was a big deal. But maybe I was just repressing my true feelings because now, in every YA book that I write, there has been a dance.

My teen daughter tells me that a dance scene is so cliched. (Okay, sorry about that. This is one cliche that I love.)

My husband tells me that high school kids don't go to high school dances anymore, except prom.  He read it in the newspaper, which means somebody studied it. So that has to be right.

I went to a dance (yes, this is true) on Saturday night and asked my friends-with-teen-kids if their children went to high school dances. "No, not unless it's prom."

So if anyone knows the real truth out there, please leave me a blog comment or send me an email or something. I'm really curious now.

Warning: I will still have dance scenes in books when I need them. The teen in me--who never went to a dance--wants to experience it anyway I can.

Cover reveal for my November release - I WISH

And here it is—the cover reveal for I WISH ...

Lacey Linden is hiding the truth of her life—a depressed mom, a crumbling house, and bills too big to pay. While her high school classmates see a girl with a ready smile and good grades, Lacey spends her evenings seeking ways to save her family. On a get-cash-quick trip to the flea market, Lacey stumbles over a music box that seemingly begs her to take it home. She does, only to find that it's inhabited by a gorgeous "genie." He offers her a month of wishes, one per day, but there's a catch. Each wish must be humanly possible.

Grant belongs to a league of supernatural beings, dedicated to serving humans in need. After two years of fulfilling the boring wishes of conventional teens, he is one assignment away from promotion to a challenging new role with more daring cases. His month with Lacey is everything that he expects—and nothing like he imagines. Lacey and Grant soon discover that the most difficult task of all might be saying goodbye.
