Kellie is an avid tea drinker and lover of Alice in Wonderland so we thought this teacup would be rather fitting for her Follow The White Rabbit series. This pretty teacup set would be perfect for fans of Alice in Wonderland or just enthusiastic tea drinkers. I need this cup in my life.

Price: $20-35

This show is great and a lover of fairytale retellings will adore it. Obviously if you have netflix or amazon instant video then buying the dvd set isn’t a great option. If the person doesn’t have those video subscriptions this is a nice gift because you can watch it together.

Vintage Fairytale book

Price: Not Available

This item in particular was sold on etsy but it is more the idea of it. I think it is really nice to get someone a vintage story book. Especially a children’s one because it can make people nostalgic. If you love fairy tale retellings it is really adorable to see the artwork in some of these older children’s books.

Terra Harmony’s Akasha series is based on the four elements and when I saw this necklace I knew it was perfect. It shows all of the four elements in not just the traditional sense. It is really pretty and has a cool design.

Four Elements Bath Salts

Price: $20.00

I love this idea of the bath salts for each element. Products like this can be something people don’t buy for themselves or forget to buy. I think this is a really nice gift and even fits really well with this series’ inspiration.

The Rising also features werewolves. So what better represents a werewolf than the moon. What I love most about these two gifts for The Rising is that they could be worn together and look really great because gold and silver combined has been very popular.

Since the Ennara series is fantasy, I was so excited when I found this bracelet. It screams fantasy to me. It has the intriguing mystery of fantasy as well as the beautiful elegance of the genre.

Dragon Ear Cuffil_570xN.467166974_1vmn

When I think fantasy I think dragons. This pick is based off the Ennara and the Book of Shadows cover. I think ear cuffs look wicked cool and are so fun to see. This one has glitter which doesn’t make it as scary and goes really well with the cover.

The Disney Little Golden Books are my childhood and I think that goes for a lot of people. Something like this can be really meaningful to someone and especially if they are a Pinocchio junkie.

I hope you enjoyed our Patchwork Press Valentine’s Day Gift Guide! This was definitely our quirky spin on the traditional Valentine’s day gift. We definitely hope to do more posts like this in the future.

Cover Reveal: Incite, by Erica CrouchIncite by Erica Crouch
Series: Ignite #2
Published by Patchwork PressPublished Summer 2014
Genres: FantasyParanormal,Young Adult
Goodreads
Synopsis:

In this thrilling conclusion to the Ignite series, Pen and Azael return to finish what they started. The earth is in ruins, and the war of Heaven and Hell has spilled over into the mortal world.

In the frozen wasteland of the apocalypse, Azael and his band of cohorts search for Pen and Michael with orders to kill. Little does he know that his sister has incited a rebel army of her own. Angels and demons alike stand side by side, ready and willing to fight for a future they didn’t realize they could have.

Learn more about the Ignite series on Erica’s blog, or purchase Ignite and Entice now on the following platforms:

I have been waiting for today for months now. I am so excited to reveal the cover of Incite, the final installment in the Ignite series! I love this cover so much (and I guess I should, since I designed it myself!). Pen finally truly fights back in Incite, and the cover shows that no nonsense attitude you’ll see. Compared to the cover of Ignite, where she’s got her back to us, she’s facing her advisories head on in Incite. And of course the nature of Ignite is replaced with an industrial background (which may or may not become a pivotal location in the story). If you look closely, you’ll see the feathers of her wings are falling off… I’ll leave you to decide what that means!

Here are the three covers of the Ignite series, all lined up:

ignite series

Incite should be coming out this summer, and it’s going to be a doozy. Let me tell you a bit about it…

It opens just a little bit after where Ignite leaves off. Azael is up in Heaven with Gus, Lilith, and Lucifer. He’s bent on revenge after Pen’s betrayal, but there may be a small part of him not ready to kill his sister, no matter how divergent their loyalties have grown. But when Lucifer gives  the order to find her and kill her, he wrangles together a group of some of the nastiest demons to hunt her. (Remember the mention of Zepar in Ignite? Well, you’ll finally get to meet the Ripper himself in Incite!)

Meanwhile, Pen and Michael are fugitives, running from both angels and demons. They’re on the run in the midst of the apocalypse, living a very reactive life until they run into a very curious angel who offers them something more: an army of their own. Without meaning to, Pen and Michael’s actions have incited a rebellion (it’s called Incite for a reason!). A cohort of misfits who aren’t satisfied with the way Heaven and Hell has been running things are ready for a change, and they’re ready and willing to fight for it. Angels and demons are fighting side by side for the same cause, and we’ll be meeting some new (awesome!) faces: Kala, Ana, and Eli. I promise, you’re going to love them (I already do!). I hope you’ve read Entice, because someone from the first war will be coming back to save Pen’s life for a second time.

Incite is going to be a lot of fun. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeves, and let me just say this… You may be looking in the wrong direction regarding the true villain of the story. Have I said too much? ;)

Make sure to add Incite on GoodReads! And keep an eye out on the 29th, because I will be posting ANOTHER cover reveal in honor of Patchwork Press’ one year anniversary. It’s the first book in the Undying series — my upcoming new adult science fiction — called Cut. It’s one of my favorites, so you won’t want to miss it!

ignite cover

Guess what day it is today… It’s Ignite‘s book birthday, and we couldn’t be more excited! This is Erica’s debut novel, and we have no doubt it’ll be a hit. How could it not be? Have you seen that cover?! Erica’s tour is kicking off today at I’m A Book Shark, and it’s only the first stop of many, with lots of interviews and guest posts from Erica and six chances to win a copy of Ignite all your own.

So, in case you’re new to the wonderful world of Patchwork Press… let’s talk Ignite!

About the book: Penemuel (Pen) fell from grace over a millennium ago, yet there are still times she questions her decision to follow her twin brother, Azael, to Hell. Now that the archangel Michael has returned, threatening Lucifer’s vie for the throne, she begins questioning everything she has always believed.

As Hell prepares for war – spreading a demonic virus and pilfering innocent souls to build an army – the lines separating the worlds blur. Fates erase and the future is left unwritten. Azael is determined that he and his sister will continue to serve as demons together, but for the first time in her life, Pen is not ruled by destiny. She has the freedom of choice.

With choice comes sacrifice, and Pen must decide which side she’s willing to risk everything fighting for: the light, or the dark.
