Broken Ties: Cover Reveal…sort of…

My Facebook page followers would have already seen the spanking new cover for the latest book in the Mentalist Series, Broken Ties, so this is not really a grand reveal. Yes, you guessed it; I will not be staging a reveal across many sites this time. It was fun to do for Aversion and Sentient but involved a lot of management which I (unfortunately) haven’t had the luxury of time to pursue. I’ll aim to go all out for Keepers, when the time comes. Once again, thanks to Neso, Okey, Chizoba, Chioma, Dumebi and most especially to my Mum for making the comments that transformed this cover from so-so to brilliant (at least I think it’s brilliant).

Hope you guys like it. Broken Ties will be out in May.

Broken Ties cover

Blurb:

“There was nothing unusual about the night everything changed. No flashing lights in the sky, no searing fire in my belly; no sign whatsoever to suggest the shift that was to come…Nora Brice did strange things to me. Strange and awful things…” 

Paul Colt has a problem, and it is not one most teenage boys face. Yes, he likes a girl; one he’s pretty certain he’ll do foolish things for, given the chance. But he can’t go after her, or any other girl for that matter. That’s what he gets for being an Averter; forced to toe the line for the propagation of the collective. He knows some rules are okay to trifle with, and there are some which should never be broken. The gravest of them all?

Don’t fall in love.

Ever. 

This is the story of how Paul breaks that rule.

This prequel novella to the Mentalist Series can be read before or after Aversion, Book One of The Mentalist Series.

 

Sentient: Book Two of The Mentalist Series is now available for purchase!

After all the build up around this release, Sentient is finally out! Thanks to everyone who made this publication possible. It has been an intense experience but we got there in the end. You can now grab your e-copy on Amazon, Smashwords and iBooks. It should be up on Kobo and Barnes and Noble this week too. Paperback release to follow next week. Please spread the word and post a review when you’re done, to give other readers an idea of what the story is about. Every little helps!

Cover Reveal: Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series)

So, this is it! The spanking new cover for Aversion is finally here, courtesy of the talents of (the fantastic) Abona Frost. I have to say I love, love, love it. It’s much better than what I produced (remember the blue eyes?) and captures some of the spirit of the story. It’s now less than three weeks to the book’s release date (3rd December) so things are winding down in the production house (phew!) but there is still a lot to do. I’d like to also say a big thank you to Fara of Tumbling in Books for helping organizing all of this, and much more. None of this would have been possible without your generous assistance.

Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series)
A YA paranormal romance novella by Kenechi Udogu
Blurb:
For Gemma Green’s first time, things should have been straightforward. Find your subject, hold their gaze and push a thought into their head to save them from future disaster – Aversion complete. A pretty simple process given that the subject was to have no recollection of the experience. But Russ Tanner doesn’t seem to want to forget. In fact the more she tries to avoid him, the more he pushes to get to know her. Gemma knows she has a problem but is she facing the side effects of a failed Aversion or has the school’s tennis champ really fallen for her?
Mini excerpt (opening paragraph):
My name is Gemma Green and I am an Averter. You’re probably wondering what that means and why it is important for me to state that I am one. On the surface there is not much difference between me and most other fifteen year old girls, except for the fact that I have the ability to alter people’s minds and stop them from carrying out actions that will unhinge their predestined life paths. I know it sounds impossible but trust me, it’s true. Only another Averter will be able to tell what I am from sight. Well, not really sight. We have the ability to sense things that others overlook. For example, I always know when Continue reading

This Week In Kenny’s World (5) – Aversion Cover Reveal Date and Christmas Anthology

My, my, my! We’ve been busy this past week in Kenechi land (but I’ll try and keep this short). I’m very pleased to announce that there will be a cover reveal for Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series) on Friday 16th November. This will feature on this blog and on some other bloggers’ pages so keep an eye out for it. Also, I’m doubly excited to share that my short story, The Clause, has been accepted as part of a Christmas anthology for a UK Charity. I know! Terribly exciting news. It is due out end of the month and I will post more details on here when things are all sorted out.

In other news, The Altercation of Vira was reviewed by Martha of BooksBooks&MoreBooks last Thursday and Annabelle of Sparkles and Lightning included The Other Slipper as a giveway book as part of her Blogoversary Celebrations. There are also still a couple of tour slots available for Aversion’s three weeks book blog tour in January (only 3 spaces left I think) so if you want to sign up, now is the time to do so (courtesy of Tumbling in Books).

That’s it for now but watch this space.
