The fabulous Krissi Dallas and I first connected a couple years ago as I was self-publishing The Clearing. Krissi had self-published her first novel as well–a YA fantasy called Windchaser. But then the book was picked up by Tate Publishing, and lo, Krissi found herself traditionally published.
Needless to say, her story was a great inspiration to me.
I read Windchaser soon after exchanging emails with Krissi, and I loved, LOVED, the story. Mystery? Check. Summer camp setting, rife with opportunities for flirting and romantic misunderstandings? Check. Alternate world with attractive guys? Check, check, CHECK.
Watermark, the fourth installment of the YA fantasy Phantom Island series by Krissi Dallas, is finally releasing this fall–and I get to help reveal the cover! Ready?
I just ADORE her covers. They are so vibrant, yet clean and simple. PERFECTION.
If you haven’t jumped on board this island adventure full of magic, mystery, and romance, now is your chance–because this cover reveal comes with a GIVEAWAY for U.S. residents!

I stared at her in frustration. “What is with you?!” I exploded. She was not acting like my best friend. Like my Morgan. “You’ve been so different this summer, and I don’t get it!”
“Well, you’ve been different too! People change, you know,” she snapped back.
“If I’ve changed, fine. But at least I’m still honest with you. You, however, have turned into a liar! If we don’t have trust between us, then what do we have, Morgan?”

Relationships on the White Island are volatile and Whitnee, Morgan, and Caleb aren’t sure who they can trust—even each other. Politicians are lying, history is being rewritten, and motives are questionable. Whitnee sets out with Gabriel and a band of rebel spies to take back the enemy’s biggest weapon—Whitnee’s father. However, a shocking turn of events proves once again that the Island’s secrets have the power to destroy more than just the truth. Separated from her friends, Whitnee battles her own fears in order to survive and protect the ones she loves. But when Morgan’s illness finally comes to light, Whitnee faces a decision that could alter her future—and Morgan’s—forever. And whether she ultimately stays on the Island or leaves might not be her choice, after all.
