Cover reveal of Nissa by Bethany Lopez and interview

Cover Reveal of Nissa: a contemporary fairy tale

by Bethany Lopez

This is a YA Contemporary Fantasy:

At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother's path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.

To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she's met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren't meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?

And now... here's the AMAZING cover from b design:

Isn't it beautiful?

You can add Nissa on GoodReads.

Okay, first of all, the cover is gorgeous right?  I love the greens in it.  It's beautiful, as all of Bethany's covers are.  Did I mention that I love Bethany's books?  This is her first YA Contemporary Fantasy and I can't wait to read it!!!


Now it's time to sit down with Bethany for a few questions:

  1. What inspired you to write and how did you come to be a writer? I started our writing very young YA and was inspired by my kids. Now I write what I like to read.   
  2. I see you write the NA/YA genre, what do you read? I read a lot of NA and YA. Every once in a while I'll read an Adult Romance or Historical Romance. I also love Stephen King.
  3. Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what kind? It depends what I'm writing. With my Friends & Lovers Trilogy I listened to a lot of country, but with the NA I'm writing now, I'm listening to more Alternative and Rock.
  4. Who is your favorite author and why? That's hard to say. I grew up loving Nora Roberts and Stephen King. I've met Nora Roberts - it was awesome. I'd die to meet Stephen King. But, now I'm really inspired by my peers. I love what they're doing, and the risks their taking. I'm happy to call most of my favorite writers my friends.
  5. What are your hobbies outside of reading and writing? I love to watch movies, go to theme parks, and take pictures of my kids.
  6. Tell me about your upcoming project. I have a Contemporary Fantasy YA coming out in April, and I'm currently writing a Contemporary NA. The NA is about a single mom going to college. I really love where it's going. 
  7. Anything else you want to share with the readers? Just my gratitude. And... I really hope to meet a lot of you at utopYA Con and New Adult Sleepover Weekend
