Lena’s Triple Trick-or-Treat Cover Reveal

Trick-or-Treat Cover Reveal Banner - with candy

In celebration of Lena Goldfinch’s upcoming release, HAUNTING JOY: BOOK 2, she’s revealing three brand-new book covers! The two HAUNTING JOY books are light paranormal stories, and SONGSTONE is a fantasy romance. All three books are sweet—and slightly spine-tingling—young adult reads, perfect for cozy autumn nights!


“A sweet and charming ghost story that completely won me over.”

—Lena Coakley, Witchlanders

Joy’s new dress has a secret—one with a little supernatural history, one that’s a little more than she expected.
It all starts one ordinary afternoon, when seventeen-year-old Joy tries on some thrift-store clothes. The little white dress fits perfectly. Trouble is, now it won’t leave her alone. Soon Joy is swept up in an extraordinary journey to help a ghost complete some unfinished business.
If only that didn’t involve Joy driving through dangerous intersections...
Or calling up her high-school crush, Nick...
Or getting stuck in a cemetery after dark.
Just how much is Joy willing to risk to uncover the truth?


Joy’s story continues with another ghost, this time a boy who seems intent on disrupting her senior year…


“An original fantasy world inhabited by superstitious tribal nations and intriguingly developed characters.”

—Serena Chase, USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog
A dark, twisty tale of sorcery, tummy-tingling romance, and adventure, inspired by the folklore of New Zealand's Māori people.

Kita can meld song into stone—a skill called “storytelling,” which is greatly honored in a world with no written word. But Kita is slave to a sorcerer who practices black magic using drops of her blood. She fears he’ll use her beautiful gift for a killing spell, so she conceals it. Yet each day, his magic tightens around her neck like a rope.
Then Pono, a young journeyman, arrives from the other side of the island. He’s come to fulfill a pact between their villages: to escort a storyteller back to his village. Finally, in Pono, Kita sees her one slim chance at freedom—and she’ll risk her life to take it.

  1. The new covers are all gorgeous, but I think the cover for Songstone is my favorite. (However, that's also the book that I think sounds most interesting, so . . . take it how you will.)

  2. Awesome! I would love a chance to read these. Thanks for hosting!

  3. Oops! I missed the fine print about which cover is my favorite-I really like both of Haunting Joy covers-especially how they are the same cover with slight twists. ;)

  4. I have never read any of her books, but I absolutely love the covers! Songstone definitely sounds the most interesting and has the best cover in my opinion! :)

  5. "Which of Lena's three new covers is your favorite? :)"
    Ooh, they're all pretty neat...I prefer Songstone, but that may be because I prefer more "fantasy" to "romance."
    I don't mind romance when it's a sub-plot, or a major-minor plot, but I find I can't stand it when it's the main focus. I've started reading a few romance novels (can't really remember what any of them were called or who the authors were), but I've never been able to get past the first page or chapter. Mainly because all of the characters lack maturity, the ability to communicate, and can't seem to do much of anything without intense introspection of the color of each other's hair/perfect bods, and thoughts (or action) of sex. Just...ugh.
    I've read a few good books where the romance/attraction is a part of the story (Followers of the Word, Ilyon Chronicles... ;)), but I've sort of given up actively looking for good books in the "romance" genre.
    Then I came across this and thought, "Well, it's worth a shot." So here's hoping! :D
