New Covers for the Dark Betrayal Trilogy!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


The Dark Betrayal Trilogy is getting a new face and today I am happy to share the covers for Mortal Obligation and Mortal Defiance. Stephanie Nelson of Once Upon a Time Covers designed the new covers and I love them. She got Ree's eyes exactly as I pictured them!

Ree will face the darkest form of betrayal before the year is out.

Seventeen year old Ree McKenna has three goals: get through high school, convince her crush she is more than his best friend’s little sister, and save money for college. Fate, though, has other plans for her. After the untimely death of her older brother, Ree is haunted by dreadful nightmares and terrifying visions. To make matters worse, Ree has started to suspect that something dangerous is stalking her from the shadows.

A night full of frightening surprises leaves Ree with unsettling news. Gifted by the gods with unusual powers, she must devote herself to a battle that could very well lead to not only her death, but the demise of everyone she knows and loves. After all, Ree is the only mortal standing between the Earth and utter darkness.

Set in Savannah, Ga, Mortal Obligation is the first book of The Dark Betrayal Trilogy.

Barnes and Noble

One short week turned Ree McKenna’s life upside down. Not only does she have the weight of the world on her shoulders, but she still has to juggle homework, a job, and a curfew. While Ree tries to find her footing amidst the chaos, the Dark Ones and their champion are busy hunting down any humans that have a touch of the gods running through their veins. Allies have turned into foes, and enemies have become stronger.

The world is growing darker, but the passion between Ree and two irresistible guys blazes hotter. Romantic ties from a past life will threaten to break Ree away from the love of her life and will cloud her judgment. In order to follow her heart, Ree will break rules put in place by the gods, risking her life and the lives of her friends in an act of Mortal Defiance.

Mortal Defiance is book two of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy.

Barnes and Noble

Thank you to everyone that has participated in the reveal today and a huge thank you to Stephanie Nelson for the hard work she put into the new covers. When Immortal Grave is sent off to the editor, I plan on sharing the third and final cover of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy.

Echo of an Earth Angel is now Available!!!
Sarah M. Ross, author of Awaken, has released her new Young Adult Paranormal novel.  Echo of an Earth Angel (Book 1 of the Earth Angel Trilogy) is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

About the Book:
18 year old Tessa Copeland barely survived the worst year of her life—in fact, it was a miracle. After making it through the tragedy that killed both of her parents, she’s left to pick up the pieces of her life. Combating the holes in her memory and the concern of her friends was hard enough, but a new talent threatens to destroy everything she’s trying to reclaim. 

David Allegri didn’t mean to ruin Tessa’s life. She was the brightest soul he’d seen in centuries and he couldn’t let her die, so the fallen angel used his abilities to heal her—only he took it too far and changed Tessa forever. Now, he has to figure out a way to explain what’s happening to Tessa and somehow protect both of them from the consequences. 

His choice made them targets for the Hunters, who will use any means necessary to capture their prey. Only a desperate plan can help them escape, and sacrifices will be made. Time is ticking. Will they make it, or will they be lost to the echoes of fate?

$2.99 for ebook
$11.99 for Paperbacks. (Autographed copies available at www.sarahmross.com)

About the Author:
I started my obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. I would read any fiction book I could get my hands on. I knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding me from TV or music, my mom would take away my books as punishment (The Horror!). My love of all things paranormal was inspired by my good friend Laurie, who convinced me that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, I gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history. 
I grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with my degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as I do for several years. I will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but I couldn't take the cold and moved my frozen tush to Florida where I now live with my family and two cats. You will find me now with my trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

When I'm not writing or reading, I am probably partaking in my favorite vice: sunbathing. I know it's wrong, but I love the feeling on the hot sun on my skin and could lay in it for hours. I do live in Florida for a reason!

Please feel free to contact me!

Immortal Obligation

Thursday, June 7, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I was the recipient of a huge surprise! My younger cousin wrote a song for the Dark Betrayal Trilogy. Yeah, you read that right. Isn't that awesome? My books inspired someone to reach for her dreams. I have to admit that this floored me. Who knew that I could inspire someone to do something so cool? I'm incredibly honored.

I talked with my wonderful cousin, Olivia, and she agreed to let me share the lyrics on my blog. So, here it is:

Immortal Obligation

If you look back now
to five days ago
You'll find a girl
in her own artistic world.

It's Immortal Obligation
no frustration
Keep your mind focused now
so you can save the world somehow.

If you fast forward
you'll see the girl
that she's gotta be to save all
if she fails then we will fall.

It's Immortal Obligation
no frustration
Keep your mind focused now
so you can save the world somehow.

Use the gifts that you've been given
to chop of their heads
Technically killing's a sin
but it's not so bad when they're already dead.


I absolutely loved getting this song. I really can't tell you how much it meant to me. Not only did I get the lyrics, but was able to listen to her sing it. Trust me, this girl has a big career ahead of her. So much talent in a young woman! (I can't believe that she will be a high school freshman this coming school year.)

When I was Olivia's age, I wanted to be an author. I had all of the stories and ideas living in my head, but it just didn't seem to be a realistic life goal. I mean, we all know that most authors don't make it huge. And as I got older and learned just how little authors made for their work, I was disheartened. I put my dream aside and looked for jobs that would pay the bills. Life kind of does that to a person, you know? Here's the thing... I was paying my bills... but I was miserable. When I decided to publish my novel, Mortal Obligation, it was like someone turned on a light. I suddenly realized that I had been fighting what I was supposed to be doing, because no one thought it was an attainable goal. Me included! Well, I'm here to tell you that by reaching for my dreams, I found who I really am. I've never been so happy as I am being an author. And I hope that Liv, and everyone else, keeps reaching for their dreams.

Now it's time for me to surprise Olivia. See, she doesn't know this, but I've decided to name a character in Flukes after her. It's a character that I really like, and wanted the perfect name. And Olivia is perfect! I think Liv will like her new character, and I can't wait to share Flukes with her.

I also can't wait to share Flukes with everyone else. I'm hoping to do a cover reveal this month and to finally share a little about this story. I'm incredibly excited about this book, and hope that you all will enjoy it too. It's a bit different from the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, but I can tell you that it is a YA, paranormal novel. And it's got a lot romance. A LOT OF ROMANCE.

I know you guys are still waiting on Immortal Grave and I swear that I am working on it. I'm sorry it's taken so much longer than I originally planned. I hate causing you frustration. I know how long it can feel to wait for the next book in a series. (I am reader after all!) And I'm going to tell you all a secret... it still shocks the heck out of me that there are people eagerly waiting for the next book. I get emails, messages, and tweets daily asking me when the book will be ready. I want to respond to all of you, but it's becoming impossible. It also makes me sad to have to tell you it isn't ready yet. You guys, the guilt eats at me. It. Is. Coming. But that's all I can tell you. Your support and excitement for this series warms my heart. I'm not just saying that. It really does make me feel all fuzzy inside. I promise to deliver the very best conclusion that I can muster. And really guys, this book has so much happening... I think you're going to be happy. *fingers crossed*
