BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remnant of the fractured U.S.A. That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.
With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter. Her wish? To save her friend’s life. Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is the erasure of her entire mortal existence.
Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself. Living as an occupant of the Society’s lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.
Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin. Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences. When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant. Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of her existence itself.
Today is the exciting and fantastic cover reveal for a new novel from Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh entitled SOCIETY OF WISHES. The first book of an urban fantasy quartet, Elise & Lynn use their mutual support of one another and their personal experiences to bring Jo Espinosa to life as the main character. Desperate to save her friend as they both lay dying, Jo uses familial magic to summon salvation and unknowingly starts a chain of events that will open her eyes to the reality of the phrase “be careful what you wish for”.
Having been a fan of Elise’s Air Awakens and Loom Saga books, I was pleased to hear that she would have a new adult series with a co-author. It sounds like something completely new and fascinating, from an author I love and a new one that intrigues me.
This is also the first cover that Elise designed herself, so not only do we get great writing (in a month, but who’s counting?) but we get a gorgeous cover that is equal parts dark, exciting, and BEAUTIFUL.
Today is the release date for the official cover reveal and the summary. I think you’ll like Society of Wishes as much as I do and hopefully you’ll add it to your Goodreads TBR and maybe even preorder it on Amazon (it’s a big deal right now – $3.99!).
Below you’ll find an interview with the authors about becoming co-authors and why they chose new adult, where some of the inspiration comes, and why writing in the first place.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Elise Kova is the USA Today bestselling author of the Air Awakens series, Loom Saga, and Wish Quartet.
In her past lives, she has graduated from an MBA program, lived in Japan for a bit, and worked for a Fortune 500 technology company. However, she finds herself much happier in her current reincarnation as full-time author. When not writing, she can usually be found playing video games, drawing, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She’s happy to call Saint Petersburg, Florida, her home, but is always looking forward to her next trip.
Lynn Larsh considers herself to be a serial hobby-dabbler. She got a bachelors degree in music (which she used for all of four months), studied aerial acrobatics and classical piano for many years, worked briefly as a stunt woman in a Wild West stunt show (it’s a long story), and eventually settled down into the bar tending business in St. Petersberg, FL. When she’s not acting as a purveyor of fine libations, you can find her diving head first into her newest venture as a New Adult author, or simply writing Voltron fan fiction on Archive of Our Own.
