To celebrate the upcoming release of Hunting Prometheus: A Gatekeeper’s Spin-Off, Book Two, which is now available for pre-order, we’ve put The Gatekeeper’s Bride: A Prequel to The Gatekeeper’s Saga on sale for 99 cents for the first time ever and for only this month.

First, grab your copy of The Gatekeeper’s Bride:

Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld. But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand.

Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children came into being and why they were assigned their respective duties. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.

Next, pre-order your copy of Hunting Prometheus, which releases on May 6th. How do you like the cover?

Hermie and Hestie never asked to be demigods. Unlike others of their kind, they aren’t interested in going on quests and being the center of a world-changing prophecy. But when Zeus learns of Apollo’s vision–of the twins finding Prometheus, Zeus’s number one enemy–the hunt for Prometheus begins. Zeus and his allies want to bind Prometheus and kill the twins before their threat of a revolution becomes a possibility. If Hermie and Hestie don’t find the Titan first, they have no chance of fulfilling their destiny or of surviving Zeus’s threat against them.

A bit about The Gatekeeper’s Sons:

Readers are calling this series, “Amazing,” “Addicting,” and “One of the best modern retelling of ancient myth.”

Kirkus Reviews wrote that it’s “sure to thrill Hunger Games fans.”

Midwest Book Reviews calls it “a powerful young adult fantasy.”

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Thanatos, the god of death. She thinks she’s manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her. The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.

The Hypnos Cover Gets a Makeover!

The Hypnos cover gets a makeover!

I’m pleased to announce that the cover for Hypnos: A Gatekeeper’s Saga Spin-Off , the continuation of the Amazon bestselling Gatekeeper’s Saga, has been redesigned by Benjaminoftomes at Crisp Quartz Design. The ebook is already available for pre-order at many retailers and will release on August 8th.

What do you think of the new look of the Hypnos cover?

hypnosebook

Hypnos and Jen aren’t married long when they realize something’s missing: they both want to have a child, especially when they see how happy Therese and Than are with their twins. But the creation of new gods is against the rules, and they aren’t willing to give up their immortality. So Hypnos goes to Mount Olympus to offer Zeus a deal. He’ll make it his mission to find out the source of the recent attacks on Gaia–horrible earthquakes that have already released one monster from the Titan Pit–if Zeus will agree to let him and Jen have one immortal child.

Because the attacks are getting humans killed and none of the other gods have been able to discover a lead, Zeus, in his desperation, agrees. But this new quest just might get Hypnos swallowed and trapped for all eternity.

 

Available NOW for pre-order. Releases August 8th.

Benjaminoftomes will also be redesigning the covers for the entire Gatekeeper’s Saga! I’m very excited about his preliminary concepts, and I can’t wait to share them with you! I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
 

 

Eva Pohler recently retired from a twenty-year position teaching writing and literature at a university in San Antonio, where she lives with her husband and three kids. Now a full-time writer, she’s the author of The Mystery Book Collection and three series for young adults: The Gatekeeper’s Saga, The Purgatorium Series, and The Vampires of Athens. Her books have been described as “thrilling” and “addictive.” A Kirkus reviewer said of The Gatekeeper’s Sons that it was “sure to thrill Hunger Games fans.”
 
A reader herself, Eva writes in multiple genres, but all of her stories blur the line between reality and fantasy, truth and delusion, and draw from Eva’s personal philosophy that a reader must be lured and abducted into complete captivity in order to enjoy the reading experience.

Cover Reveal
The Gatekeeper’s Bride: A Prequel to The Gatekeeper’s Saga
by: Eva Pohler
Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld. But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand. Soon, the war among the gods is as critical as the one playing out among the Achaeans and Trojans on Earth.
Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon during these tumultuous times. Learn how their children–Hypnos, Thanatos, Megaera, Tisiphone, Alecto, and Melinoe–came into being. Discover why they were assigned their respective duties as Sleep, Death, the Furies, and the goddess of ghosts. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.
This prequel to The Gatekeeper’s Saga is more than a retelling of the Persephone myth. Many more of the ancient myths are woven together to reveal the conflict, tension, and relationships among the gods in one of the most beloved pantheons in human history. The Gatekeeper’s Bride can be read before or after The Gatekeeper’s Saga, but readers might find more enjoyment from it after having met the characters by reading the saga first.
Eva is a wife and mother of three living in San Antonio, Texas. She earned her B.A. in English from Trinity University, her M.A. in English from St. Mary’s University, and her Ph.D. in English from Texas Tech University. She wrote her dissertation on narrative strategies, in which she analyzed the use of voice, point of view, character, plot, and other narrative devices used in twentieth-century British and American literature, informed by narratologists such as Tsvetan Todorov, Gerard Genette, Vladimir Propp, Seymour Chatman, Wayne Booth, and James Phelan. She also took as many classes in creative writing as was allowed at every university she attended and had the honor of studying under Robert Flynn, Nan Cuba, and Walt McDonald.
She currently writes fiction for teens and adults and teaches writing and literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio. For years she was a den leader and cub master for her sons in Boy Scouts and a troop leader for her daughter in Girl Scouts. She loved those years, but they are behind her, leaving her with more time to read and write.
She’s also an avid reader. Her favorite authors are Tracy Chevalier, Ann Patchett, J.K. Rowling, J. R.R. Tolkien, Suzanne Collins, and Stephanie Meyer. She’s also read everything by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, and other literary giants whom she also loves. She’s read single books she adores by authors like Elizabeth Wein, Diane Setterfield, Philippa Gregory, and Katherine Stockett. And her favorite book of all time, though she never read anything else by her, is Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver.
Her books include The Gatekeeper’s SagaThe Purgatorium SeriesThe Vampires of Athens Series, and The Mystery Book Collection.

Get Pohler-IZED! A Contest for Fans of Eva Pohler Books

A reader left a comment in a favorable review of one of my books recently. She said she’d been “Pohler-IZED.”

Isn’t that cute?

So then another friend gave me the idea of using that phrase in a fun way, and I decided to take it a step further and make a contest out of it!

So from now through March 21st, I want you to tag me in photos of you with one of my books. The books can be paperbacks, ebooks, or audiobooks. Just try to get the cover in the photo with you. If you don’t want to be in the photo, then have your child or your family pet model the book.

As I find the photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, I’ll “Pohler-ize” them into a Polaroid template and add them to a page on my website, where I’ll assign each entry a number.

Then, on March 21st, I’ll use random dot org to choose a winner. The winner will receive three paperback copies of any of my books–the winner’s choice.

Here are examples of some early entries:
