It’s been a long time…

I know it’s been a long time, but I’ve been writing. Today I want to share the cover for my newest book Underneath the Sun. It’s a dystopian romance. And yes, I’m working on book to of the Remember series. But here is the cover for Underneath the Sun designed by Mayhem Cover Creations. I hope you all will love this story as much as I do.

Underneath the Sun
Genre: Dystopian
Release Date: July 6, 2017  
 
Scientist warned this day was coming. And it’s finally here.
Harlow Forde is a fighter and shows no fear when the sirens blare warning that the sun’s rays that brighten the sky and create golden tans will now blister skin on contact. She grabs her bag, like the rest of the residents of her town, giving up the only home she’s ever known to make the most of her new underground one.
It makes no difference as Harlow is used to giving up the things that matter most to her like her dreams of becoming a doctor when financially she couldn’t swing it. Worst of all, letting the only boy she’s ever loved, Jackson Beau, go. The small town sport’s hero left at her urging for dreams he could achieve by utilizing a full scholarship at a prestigious university hours away.
Even though everything has changed between them, Harlow still holds out hope that Jackson will arrive before the mining doors close so that together they can hide from the brightest star in the sky now the Earth’s inhabitant’s most dangerous adversary.
Only Mother Nature is not their only foe. The residents of her town will have to band together to survive as Harlow finds her place, her voice, and love underneath the sun.

Shannon’s first love is reading, diving into other realities to explore and brave new worlds. To share her writing is the best experience of all. She writes books about teen romance whether paranormal or contemporary. She also has a steamy adult series. When Shannon isn’t writing she loves to shop and watch horror movies that make turning out the lights seem like a stupid idea. You can explore more about her at her website www.shannondermott.com, on Facebook, Goodreads and Twitter.

Happy Release day for Bethany Adams

Exiled
Series:  Return of the Elves (Novella)
| Buy Links | 
 
 
A willing exile
For a hundred years, Delbin has lived on Earth, voluntarily cut off from his birth land, Moranaia. He’s learned to hide his elven nature and use his mind magic without getting noticed. Until he accidentally wields it on the Moranaian scout sent to check on him.
A hesitant ally
Though Inona has good reason to mistrust exiles, part of her job is to make sure they aren’t causing trouble. She sets out for Earth with one goal—get this annoying mission over with. But from the moment Delbin tries to use his power on her, she can tell he is different. As more of his story unfolds, she learns that some exiles might not be what they seem.
An unexpected enemy
When a rogue Moranaian prince tries to recruit Delbin, Inona’s mission becomes anything but standard. Now Delbin and Inona must work together to hunt down the prince and uncover his latest plot.
Delbin might not be able to return to Moranaia, but he’ll do anything to save it.
BONUS – Includes the free, stand-alone short story “The Grove Between,” previously published in the Against All Odds anthology.

It’s been a long time…

I’m sorry I haven’t posted. I’m writing and being a mother.

I hope everyone had an awesome summer.

I wonder if you guys miss Mercy and the boys like I do???

As an update, for those of you that read Remember, it got a much-needed facelift and not the outside of the book, but the inside. I had the book re-editing yet again. And this time, I think it was done right. I can finally put that monkey behind me and get the paperback done.

In other news, I would love to finish the second book in Remember series, but it feels as though readers don’t want paranormal anymore. Is that true? I hope not, I love paranormal.

I am writing like crazy. I have two books that will release on audio this month. However, they aren’t under this author name. I have a book due to my editor on the 9/15. And I hope to finish my current WIPs by the end of the month freeing up time for me to get back to what I love. That’s writing young adult.

Thanks to all of you, who have continued to support me. I have a new adult dystopian book that needs to go through editing. I have a gorgeous cover just waiting for me to share. And I have to finish writing book two in the Charlize Daniels series.

I also have an idea for a contemporary romance book. So many ideas, so little time.

I just wanted to give a heads up that I’m still around.

Remember is LIVE! And other news too…

69060-remember-ebooksm

REMEMBER IS LIVE!!!! AND FOR A LIMITED TIME IT’S 99 CENTS.

Blurb…

Sixteen-year-old, Charlize Daniels, is resigned to her place in the shadows until one day with a rush of death, she meets him.

He’s everything she’s not. Tall with face like an angel, a mouth like a sinner, tattoos and piercings to rival those of rock gods, in one word, he’s cocky. And worse, he comes with his own personal fan club.

Only their every meeting is suspect, leaving her to question why he only ever turns up when her life is headed south, backwards or upside down. His explanations are shady, and his hot and cold gives her whiplash. But his lips on hers burn and take her places she’s never been.

If only she can trust him. If only he reveals what he really is? Then hopefully they won’t end up on opposite sides of a frienemy line, and she’s forced to take him down. Worse case, he’s already planned to take her out first. And not on a date, but in a dead kind of way.

For a limited time, the book is 99 cents as a thank you for all your support over the years.

This week has been a trying time for our family as we deal with one of my children being a victim of a crime. We would like to believe things like what happened, happens to someone else. But you never know. I hope you and yours will never experience what me and mine are going through. I won’t say more in order to protect my family and the ongoing investigation. Thanks for giving me time to work through this and understanding my release delay.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Spring is coming at least in weather temperature for us. I hope you have nice weather as well.

Next month, I should be releasing my New Adult Dystopian romance. The story, originally named Looking, has been pulled from Wattpad. I look forward to sharing the cover with you. The book is in the hands of the editor. So it will likely change some from the version posted on Wattpad.

Last but not least, I hope to release another free “episode of Mercy and the gang” after the final book. That and I’m working on releasing Rogue, the follow-up to Alliance.

Remember Cover Reveal

Hey guys. Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been busy. If you don’t know, I hit the USA Today list for a new adult book I wrote under a different pen name and that has started to eat up more and more of my time.

However, I’m still committed to my young adult books, including Remember. The book has been re-edited and gotten a new cover I’ve been sitting on for a while. I hope you guys will share for me. Sharing is caring, lol.

I also plan to publish my young adult dystopian novel that currently on Wattpad. I can’t wait to share that cover with you guys.

Anyway, here is the cover. And thanks for sticking with me. Without you all, my dream of writing wouldn’t be possible.

Much love on Valentine’s Day. I hope you guys are having a great one.

Title: Remember
Author: Shannon Dermott
Release date: 02/29
Genre: YA paranormal romance
Blurb:
Fans of Twilight will love the world of angels, demons, vampires and shifters that Shannon Dermott has created.
Sixteen-year-old, Charlize Daniels, is resigned to her place in the shadows until one day with a rush of death, she meets him.
He’s everything she’s not. Tall with face like an angel, a mouth like a sinner, tattoos and piercings to rival those of rock gods, in one word, he’s cocky. And worse, he comes with his own personal fan club.
Only their every meeting is suspect, leaving her to question why he only ever turns up when her life is headed south, backwards or upside down. His explanations are shady, and his hot and cold gives her whiplash. But his lips on hers burn and take her places she’s never been.

Born in the north and raised in the south, Shannon Dermott is an author of paranormal romance/urban fantasy and contemporary romance for young adults and adults. Although originally a northerner, she grew up during her formidable years in the southern heat, hanging out and having lots of fun.
It was during those years, she explored her creative side with fictional romance stories about all her teen crushes. Fun times!
Her love for reading constantly conflicts with her need to write. Interestingly, she reads more police procedural than fantasy or romance. When not reading or writing, Shannon is going to the movies, hanging out with family and friends, or best of all shopping. She loves all kinds of music (current and the 80s) and is currently obsessed with Thirty Seconds to Mars.
Just as much love Shannon has for reading is her first passion for numbers and math. But though it began with her obsession of reading and math, weaving stories won out in the end.
