Let’s start off with a question today. How do you feel about mysteries? Don’t they make you feel… well… nosy? We have something in common then, because I’m the same way!
Here’s the thing… I have this friend, J. L. Mbewe, who is an AWESOME writer. She’s written a new book, Secrets Kept. Only problem was, I didn’t know much about it. And it was just killing me, because I really, really, REALLY wanted to know!
What? Wait for the release date?
Now, that’s just silly!
No. You see, since she and I are friends, I just knew she wouldn’t mind if I stopped by to snoop through her files borrow a cup of sugar. And while she was in the kitchen, I managed to sneak into her office get lost looking for the bathroom. So, I sat down at her desk and hacked into her computer waited for her to get back.
With a curse, she will build an army. With the dagger, she will undo the last sacrifice. But first the sorceress must find the secret keeper.
That was the first little tidbit I found. Not enough for you? Fine. Here are some more details:
Torn from her homeland and thrust into a betrothal against her wishes, Ayianna learns her family has a deadly secret that now has her on the run. She joins forces with Kael, an embittered half-elf, and Saeed, an elderly High Guardian, to seek answers to her father’s death, the destruction of Dagmar, and the plains people’s bizarre behavior.
Ayianna discovers there is more at stake here than just her mother’s disappearance and her familial duty to her betrothed. The sorceress has cursed the plains people, and it is a race against time to release them before the sorceress resurrects an ancient evil.
Sounds great, huh? Wait! STILL not enough??? Too bad. I’m not showing you any more. I’m not.
Okay, I’ll do it. But only because you twisted my arm.
It’s the cover! Not bragging or anything, but I got out of there with the actual book cover!!! Here you go:
Nice… and completely worth the restraining order! Now, I’m feeling super generous, and will share one other thing I’d planned to keep for myself. For the next day or so, you can sign up for a raffle…

Just do me a favor. Don’t tell anyone I sent you. I’m in enough trouble already. Also… keep your eyes open. Secrets Kept will be released in the fall of 2013, and you won’t want to miss it!
