Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Young Adult Novels by Ashley Lavering

I am so excited that you all could celebrate my new covers with me!! Curse of the Beast and Star Cursed are Young Adult novels and a retelling of Beauty and the Beast with a werewolf twist. They are my first books published and had different models on each cover. I really wanted these novels to match as a set and really shine. So I hired the amazing cover artist, Design by Katt (aka Kathey Amaral) to redo them. https://www.facebook.com/DesignByKatt?fref=ts She was fantastic to work with and was patient with my endless nit-picking. LOL. I am sure she thought I was OCD.  But enough about us, let’s see those marvelous covers shall we? Drum-roll please…..

Curse of the Beast

Or will it consume her like so many before? Find out in the first installment of this unique retelling of Beauty and the Beast.


Star Cursed
Tangled in a web of wills, Tayla must risk everything to break the Curse of the Beast. With failure and possible death looming overhead, Tayla will do anything to find true love.

Find out in the second installment in the Curse of the Beast series.




 Author Ashley Lavering

A nomad at heart, Ashley currently claim Nevada as her home. She has a wonderful husband and two young children that put up with her “writing time.” When she’s not pondering a spell that will magically calm the ferocious winds that plague the air around her, you can find her, with notepad in hand, frantically jotting down ideas in those short moments between caring for her girls and working full time at the Elko Institute for Academic Achievement.

Art and science have always been her yin and yang. Throughout her college career, she shifted between the two, but in the end graduated with a Bachelors of Mathematics and Science from the University of Wyoming.
Charging into adventures and discovering something new has always been a passion of hers, but as a teenager she used to run screaming from a reading or writing assignment. Looking back, the irony isn’t lost on her. Now you can’t catch her without a book in hand or an open word document. Every time a new idea pops into her mind her heart races and her hand twitches to write it. In that moment, she has her writer's high and prays it will sustain her through thousands of hours of revision.
