Breaking News from the Book World

It’s Time to Imagine: Cover Reveal for Imagine Anthology

It’s time to Imagine!Β 

Well, in that case . . . Enigami ot emit s’ti!

*cough* Moving on… So today is the day we’ve all been waiting for. IT’S TIME TO REVEAL THE COVER FOR OUR IMAGINE ANTHOLOGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But first, we’ve got some good ole honest suspense for ya. πŸ˜‰ cuz in all honesty, cover reveals just wouldn’t be fun without it.

So, note from Is: NO scrolling to the end of the post to see the cover. Yeah, I’m looking at you Shruthika. No sneaking past me like you did last time. πŸ˜‚ (Nah, I’m just messing with you. XD)

Anyway, here’s the “official” book blurb first:

Imagination.

Such a small word for such a huge impact it has. Every great story begins hereβ€”in that moment after the idea but before the story is completed. The spark. The vision. The idea that will expand into a story that clings to reader’s hearts for a lifetime. An author’s story is limited only by his imagination, and how far he is willing to go to breathe life into characters. To build the foundations of another world. To see the struggles and envision the victories. To search for the magic burning in the darkness.
 
Teen Writers’ Nook presents a collection of short stories and poems from talented young authors that will take you beyond the boundaries of your mind. From snarky protagonists to the tear-jerking sacrifice. From mystical fantasy worlds to indescribable sci-fi stories. Thrilling adventures, daring choices, inspiring messages, heartfelt romances, and everything in between. Maybeβ€”just maybeβ€”these tales will have you journey past reality and to the depths of your imagination. Will you take the risk and embark through the pages of this book?

Alaine Darkwood, Alexa Peterson, Allie Jo Andersen, Britt Chao, Chloe B. Christensen, Faith Elizabeth, Grace A. Johnson, Grey S. Park, Linyang Zhang, Lorelei Angelino, Penelope Rugan, Selah Sigmon, Victoria Crooks, and V. L. Smith! 
 
RELEASE DATE IS SEPTEMBER 21, 2021!!!!!!!!


And now it’s time for a few more graphics to share!!! These come from Alexa Peterson’s “Sparks”, Victoria Crooks’ “To Risk the Truth”, and Linyang Zhang’s “Visionaries” stories!

  • Tori

    Oof last book I read?!

    Hmmm. It’s been a hot minute 🀣 last book I finished I’m not sure but the last book I’ve read fiction wise was The WingFeather Saga: Dark sea of Darkness (or whatever it’s called πŸ˜‚)

    • Issabelle Perry

      Lol, girl, that’s just like me SO MUCH!!! 🀣🀣🀣 AAAAAHHHH THAT BOOK SOUNDS SO AWESOME!!!!!!! I’ve been REALLY wanting to read the WingFeather Saga for a while now… (I have such a long tbr. XD) THANK YOU SO MUCH for entering and stopping by!!!!! <333333

  • Joelle Stone

    OOOHH LA LA THIS IS SO COOL!!! AND WHAT IS THIS LORELEI YOU’RE GETTING PUBLISHED WHY ARE YOU NOT SHOUTING THIS ALL OVER YDUBS?!?!

    *calms down*

    *wonders if this was where that dot tactic came from*

    *agrees with Issabelle that the more dots is better*

    And aherm, last book I read… That would be Light of the Last, by Chuck Black. It’s so good, a fitting end to his Wars of the Realm series. *starry eyes* There were several tear-wrenching scenes, and Drew FINALLY figured out that he’s seeing angels and demons, and Sydney’s back and Validus got A TEAM which I always find cool and everything was just swaggy. *happy sigh* *flops back on couch in full Disney princess drama* *moans “I’m so happy” like Dash from Incredibles*

    Anywho, great post, guys!

    • Issabelle Perry

      AAAAAAHHHH GIRL THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m SO glad you think so!!!!!!! Hahahaha. XDDD

      *is very glad that Joelle agrees with me*

      Actually, I got the dot tactic idea from a few other bloggers who did it a lot. XD It’s so much fun… and addicting. XD I LOVE IT!!!!

      *gasp* GIRL, GIRL, GIRLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! WHY DID YOU NOT TELL ME YOU WERE READING THIS SERIES??????? Like the wars of the realm trilogy is hands down my FAVORITE one from Chuck Black!!!!!! *high fives* *also starry eyes* *sniffs* Girl, I know right!!!! I got SO emotionally attached to this series. Oh my goodness, YESS I LOVED THAT PaRT!!!!!!! VALIDUS AND HIS TEAM ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *contented sigh* Lol, girl, you just crack me up. XD

      THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH, GIRL!!!!!!!!!

  • Jane

    Okay, so before I celebrate and go complete fan girl over the cover, I kinda fell off the face of the earth for the past few days and I’m gonna get to the two other posts I missed today. πŸ˜‰
    And now, since I am about it explode with excitement and can’t type fast enough…. THE COVER LOOKS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AMAZINGLY AWESOMELY COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *infinite exclamation marks*

    I’M TO EXCITED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT TO TYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay yay yay yay yay yay yay YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There isn’t a word out there to describe how happy I feel right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33333 😊

    (I do have one quick question, and it’s probably to late to asking this, but would it be okay if I changed my name from Jane to Penelope Rugan?
    Now, If it causes you guys any extra trouble than DO NOT DO IT. I know you all are already really busy and I don’t want to add another thing to your plate.)

        • Katherine

          Lol, I was laughing so hard too when we typed it up.πŸ˜‚ Issabelle and I can be pretty silly together . . . .
          AW, y’all are so sweet, girls!!!!!! <333 Eee, I'm glad to hear y'all are excited!!!!!! πŸ˜€
          Haha, okay.πŸ˜‰ Totally alright! That happens to me a lot. If I had replied sooner, though, that would have helped. πŸ˜‰

          • Sisters Three

            Hahaha, we’re glad!!!
            Hahaha, maybe but when we came over here it wasn’t even showing we had commented the first time until we commented again…oi, technology sometimes…lol…
            (Also, could you pass the word to Issabelle that the new cover on In Healing Hands looks great!!!)

                • Issabelle Perry

                  D’awww, girls, y’all just always make my day so much!!!!! πŸ˜„ AAAAHHHH THANK Y’ALL SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!! I just can’t tell y’all how much it means to know someone likes something I’ve made.

                  Actually, I don’t. It’s too confusing for me, lol. XD I use a place called Pixlr and sometimes I’ll use Canva. There’s a free version and, though it doesn’t have all the options as Adobe has, it has enough for my li’l ole needs.

                  • Sisters Three

                    Aww, well it deserves to be liked cause it looks great!!!

                    Gottcha! We tried Canva but it was taking forever on our laptop….lol…so we struggled with Adobe for thirty minutes till we figured out how to work it…we’re pretty happy with some of the cover concepts we’ve made! It’s a lot of fun!!!

                    • Issabelle Perry

                      D’awwww, girls, y’all just make me smile so hard. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!

                      Aaaahhh, I getcha. Those things tend to run slow for me, but I also just have a computer that likes to take its sweet, precious time to do A N Y T H I N G!!!!!! XD Aaahh well that is SO cool!!!!! I’d love to see some of those cover concepts if you’re cool with sharing! (Which just reminds me that I never responded to y’all’s email… oops *hides* Honestly, I have no idea where September has gone. XD)

                    • Sisters Three

                      Lol…glad to hear it!!! Our families know for smiling…hahaha…our dad smiled so much in high school they nicknamed him Smiley, so now it’s kind of what we do, smile and make people smile…hahaha…

                      Right, our laptop does that…some days it works great other days…ehhh, not so much…lol…Oh, well *blushes* we’ll have to think about it…lol…still getting the hang of the software but they’re getting better…we get one or two we’re proud of and we’ll send you an email…(Hahaha, it’s fine…you’ve been busy and we get it!)

                    • Issabelle Perry

                      Hahahahaha, that’s actually really funny about your dad. XD Lol, well, y’all girls are PERFECT at it!!!! *high fives*

                      Ugh, ikr??!! Hahaha, that’s totally okay!!! I completely get that. The first stuff I ever designed was terribly cringy at best. XD Aaaahhh THAT’S AWESOME!!!!!!! Okey-dokey!!!! Hopefullly I’ll be able to respond back to y’all’s email first. We can make it a game. Let’s see who can respond the quickest! (Why do I get the feeling that I’m gonna lose? XD) (Awww THANK Y’ALL for understanding! I’m hoping as soon as Imagine releases, I’ll get some more freetie. *crosses fingers*

                  • Sisters Three

                    Glad to hear it!!! *High fives*

                    Right, they just didn’t turn out like we wanted….the best ones we’ve done are the ones for our friends…and the one we just finished this morning…it looks pretty nice…Oh, no this email game is no fair…lol…we leave on Sunday, and will be two whole weeks without internet…hahaha…so you might win. (Totally! We’ve been a little busy ourselves with vaca and other stuff, such as school…)

                    • Issabelle Perry

                      *high fives y’all back*

                      Aaahhh, well, that’s really awesome!!!!!! You’ve gotta start somewhere, right? Lol, oh really? I have an advantage!! This could actually be the first time I’d ever win something like this. πŸ˜‚ Oh, but I hope y’all have a FANTABULOUS vacation, you read lotsa books and eat lotsa chocolate (that’s what sane people do on vacation, right? It’s not just me XD), and maybe, hopefully, *crossing fingers* when you’re connected to the internet again, you’ll see an email waiting from me. πŸ˜‚ (Girls, you’re not the only one. I’m just waiting for my breather moment. XD)

                  • Sisters Three

                    Right! We got two now that look pretty sweet! We’ll send them you’re way when we get back, cause otherwise we’re gonna spend the entire trip wondering what you thought about them…lol…
                    Lol…Yay for you!!! Hahaha, okay, now we don’t mind you winning…
                    Thank you so much!!! Lol…totally! *guilty looks at all the audiobooks downloaded for the drive and the insane amount of m&m’s packed….lol….*
                    Looking forward to our return then!!! (Whew! Good to know….life’s been a whirlwind…hahaha…)

      • Emma

        EEEKKK!!!!!!!! *waves back* I finally figured it was time to start commenting here!! πŸ˜‰ Awww, I’m so glad my comment made your day!! *hugs*
        Ah, yes Rise of the Wolf was really good. I didn’t like it as much as the Ascendance series (but that series is really hard to beat!) XD And *coughs* there is a snarky boy!!!!!!!!! Oh, also it was set during the Roman times so that was really cool! The only content caution is that it talks A LOT about the Roman gods and magic but not to the point were it made me really uncomfortable. So if that doesn’t bother you, I think you would really enjoy it!!!! <3<3<3

        • Katherine

          πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ Haha, well I’m glad you did!!!! I like talking to you!! Aww, girl, hearing from you always makes my day!!!!!<333 *hugs you back*

Oh my goodness that does sound really COOL!!!!!!!! Okay, thanks for the caution warning. πŸ™‚ Aah, it just sounds sooo good; I can't wait to read it!!!!!!!!!!<3<3<3<3

    Again, the cover is SO COOL!! I just love all the fun elements you added to it to add to the theme! Also, an idea I had, wouldn’t it be cool if you had electronic signatures on the last page from all the authors? Idk if that’d be possible, privacy stuff and all, but I just had that idea while I was sitting in my room hehe.
