Kate Sparkes – Bound

I met Kate last year while tweeting about NaNoWriMo. I’ve been following her blog since, and I enjoy her wit and writing. She wrote a blogpost about 2014 being her year for book releases, and it certainly is! A few weeks ago, she offered an opportunity to share some news and the gorgeous cover for her book release, Book 1 in her Bound trilogy, and I am elated to be a small part of her success.

Here is the amazing cover (designed by Ravven. Contact: http://www.ravven.com):

Bound by Kate Sparkes

And here is a brief synopsis of Bound:

Welcome to Darmid, where magic is a sin, fairy tales are contraband, and the people live in fear of the Sorcerers on the other side of the mountains.

Rowan Greenwood has everything she’s supposed to want from life—a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there’s more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic she’s been forced to suppress since childhood.

When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people’s most feared enemies, a simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that’s more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined.

Now Rowan might just get everything she ever dreamed of—that is, if the one thing she’s always wanted doesn’t kill her first.

If you’d like to know more about the amazing Kate, here you go:

Kate Sparkes was born in Hamilton, Ontario, but now resides in Newfoundland, where she tries not to talk too much about the dragons she sees in the fog. She lives with a Mountie, two kids who take turns playing Jekyll and Hyde, three cats with more personality than most people she meets, and the saddest-looking dog on the planet. Her first novel, Bound, will be released in June 2014, assuming the dragons don’t eat her first.

  1. You are absolutely right about the cover. It is gorgeous! Love the synopsis as well–interesting, really. Funny, when Kate lived in Hamilton, we were practically neighbors, given I live in and around the GTA. With her living in NFLD, my wife’s family is now practically neighbors with her! Goes to show–small world!

    Nonetheless, congrats to Kate on the new release. I may just pick up a copy to lend a fellow Canadian my support!
