Lena Goldfinch's YA Triple Trick-or-Treat Cover Reveal + Giveaway

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…

Coming soon!


“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.

Lena is a great author (and friend)! I know I'm biased, but I still totally recommend these books if you're a fan of sweet, engaging, and creative YA stories. :) Aren't the Haunting Joy covers intriguing??

Thanks for checking out the cover reveal!

Ooh, Haunting Joy is lovely! But Songstone is breathtaking as well! Such gorgeous new covers! I was just thinking about Aire the other day and how much I loved it! Need to read another book by Lena Goldfinch! ^_^


Amber Stokes said...


The covers really are stunning, aren't they? :) And I'm so glad to hear you loved Aire so much! Have you read The Language of Souls? I think you'd enjoy that one and possibly Songstone as well. Those are two of my favorites of Lena's work, and they're lovely fantasy stories! :)


Shantelle & Books said...

Amber, I haven't read The Song of Souls yet, and I'm so looking forward to reading Songstone!! Yay! :) :)

Thank you so much, Lena and Amber! ^_^
