Golden Daughter Cover Reveal

Monday, February 24, 2014

I have a particular treat to share today, something I think you'll all enjoy. Anne Elisabeth Stengl is (you guessed it) preparing to publish another book! Don't know who she is?

Anne Elisabeth Stengl is the author of the award-winning Tales of Goldstone Wood series, adventure fantasies told in the classic Fairy Tale style. Her books include Christy Award-winning Heartless and Veiled Rose, and Clive Staples Award-winning Starflower. She makes her home in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, Rohan, a passel of cats, and one long-suffering dog. When she's not writing, she enjoys Shakespeare, opera, and tea, and practices piano, painting, and pastry baking. She studied illustration and English literature at Grace College and Campbell University.

Golden Daughter does not premier until November, but today I have the pleasure of revealing the [lovely] cover!
(Can we take a moment to talk about those galaxies? Beautiful.)

The cover illustration was done by Julia Popova. Visit her website,, to learn more about her and her work.
What's Golden Daughter all about?

Masayi Sairu was raised to be dainty, delicate, demure . . . and deadly. She is one of the emperor’s Golden Daughters, as much a legend as she is a commodity. One day, Sairu will be contracted in marriage to a patron, whom she will secretly guard for the rest of her life.
But when she learns that a sacred Dream Walker of the temple seeks the protection of a Golden Daughter, Sairu forgoes marriage in favor of this role. Her skills are stretched to the limit, for assassins hunt in the shadows, and phantoms haunt in dreams. With only a mysterious Faerie cat and a handsome slave—possessed of his own strange abilities—to help her, can Sairu shield her new mistress from evils she can neither see nor touch?
For the Dragon is building an army of fire. And soon the heavens will burn.

And in celebration of this cover reveal, Anne is giving away the winner's choice of two of her previously-published Goldstone Wood novels - enter below or head to her blog to join in the fun. :)
