Cover Reveal: Eventide by Mae Clair #thriller #supernaturalsuspense

Hi, friends! Thanks for joining me today as I roll out the cover of the final book in my Hode’s Hill Series of novels. A special thanks to Staci Triolo for designing the snazzy header image for me. Isn’t it great? I was so appreciative of Staci’s help, given I feel like I’ve been treading water lately. But then I know she is, too. Most writers recognize it as a regular state of mind.

Every once in a while, we get something sparkly to distract us. For me it’s my latest cover.

Book cover for Eventide, a Hode's Hill novel by Mae Clair shows an old abandoned house in a wash of blue tones

Release Date: December 31, 2019
Genre: Supernatural Thriller / Suspense /Mystery
Publisher:  Kensington Publishing • Lyrical Underground Imprint


As with the first two novels in the Hode’s Hill series, Eventide features a dual timeline with two mysteries—one set in the present, one in the 1800s—that intertwine at the end.

Blurb:
The darkness is coming . . .

The old house near Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania is a place for Madison Hewitt to start over—to put the trauma of her husband’s murder, and her subsequent breakdown, behind her. She isn’t bothered by a burial plot on the property, or the mysterious, sealed cistern in the basement. Not at first. Even the presence of cold spots and strange odors could be fabrications of her still troubled mind. But how to explain her slashed tires, or the ominous messages that grow ever more threatening?

Convinced the answer lies in the past, Madison delves into the history of the home’s original owners, only to discover the origin of a powerful evil. An entity that may be connected to a series of gruesome attacks that have left police baffled. No matter where she turns—past or present—terror lingers just a step away, spurred on by a twisted obsession that can only be satisfied through death…


I hope you’re intrigued! Pre-orders are already available through all major book retailers via this Universal Purchase Link. Naturally, I am very appreciative of your interest. It’s always hard saying goodbye to a series.

The first two Hode’s Hill novels—Cusp of Night and End of Day—can be read as stand-alones, but Eventide is best enjoyed with the knowledge of what occurred in End of Day. No need to worry though!

There is still plenty of time to catch up with the series as Eventide does not release until December 31st. Books 1 and 2 are available through the links below:
Cusp of Night
End of Day

You can also add Eventide to your Goodreads list HERE. I hope you find this book as intriguing as I did when writing it.

Many thanks for visiting with me today. Cover reveals always feel like a party, and what better way to celebrate than with friends! 🙂

  1. Intrigued?? I’m champing at the bit!! And that cover is to DIE for!! (Hopefully not in the cistern in the basement! 😯 ) I can’t wait for this one, and personally, I think this series is absolutely your best work to date. Your skill as a writer has done nothing but get better and better. (And it started off pretty darn good, so that’s saying something.)

    What a way to end the year and start off the new one! Marked my calendar already! 🙂 ❤

    • You are so sweet! That just made me grin and break into a mad Snoopy dance. Well, in my head anyway, since I’m currently sitting in Panera’s with my Mac and if I started wild gyrations in the aisle I think they’d ask me to leave.

      I had another reader remark about a change in my writing (for the better, Thank God) in this series, and that makes me feel good, too. It’s always my goal to grow and improve.

      Thank you, thank you!!

      • I think of it more as growth rather than change. You still have your wonderful unique voice and style, but it keeps on getting better. And personally, I think that’s what we all should be aiming for, in every aspect of life. We learn, we grow, we improve, right? That’s MY plan, anyway. 😀

      • It’s my plan too, Marcia. And I’m glad you can recognize my “voice.” I’ve had a few other readers tell me they can recognize it too, and that makes me feel good. I’m completely with you on improving and growing. It’s my goal, too!!

    • Natalie, thank you so much! You have me grinning ear to ear, especially with that comment about dual time lines. I really enjoyed juggling those with this series. That you for your support, my friend!

  2. Just pre-ordered mine and left a question up for discussion on the Goodreads link. The house on the cover looks so desolate, and the ground mist makes the atmosphere downright creepy. Poor Madison has been through so much, I hope she finds a guy who’ll help her through what’s coming and she gets a happy ever after. I know what I’ll be doing on New Year’s day–reading your book and eating pork for luck:) Wishing your book lots of luck, too. I loved the first two. And Staci’s header is awesome.

    • Judi, you rock! Thank you for all that support and for the GR question.When I originally planed this book, Tessa and David were supposed to be the lead characters (carried over from book 2), but I felt their storyline had wrapped by the end of End of Day, and Madison needed so much more. I hope you like were I took her story arc. And pork on New Year’s Day sounds good. I’m glad Eventide will be part of the celebration 🙂

  3. Reblogged this on Judi Lynn and commented:
    My blogger friend, Mae Clair, is doing a cover reveal of her book. The desolate, creepy setting fits her dark, supernatural tales. I loved the first two books in her series. You might want to check them out:

    • YAY! Thank you for the pre-order Denise, and for the well wishes. I’m sad to see this series end, but I AM excited about this final book and how it all plays out. I hope you will enjoy the tale. So strange to thinking it will be kicking off a whole new decade with 2020.

    • I am so excited to hear that, Jacquie! I’m not a fan of winter, but I am looking forward to December and the release. Knowing that others are excited about it too, has me breaking into spontaneous Snoopy dances! 🙂

  5. Love the new cover, Mae. That house conveys isolation and secrets so beautifully. That blurb is a killer … (if you’ll pardon the expression) I often find the blurb more difficult to write than the book. You’ve nailed this one. Reblogging this exciting reveal.

  6. You nailed it when you said you felt like you’ve been treading water. Me to! I do love the meme Staci created. I have pre-ordered Eventide and can’t wait. Great dark winter reading!!! Congrats, Mae!!

    • I never seem to get caught up anymore, Jan. I guess we can all relate to that. I wish there was a magic fix. In the meantime, I’m happy to celebrate small victories like this cover reveal. Thanks for celebrating with me, and MANY THANKS for the pre-order. It is so appreciated!

    • Aww, thanks, Julie. I’m thrilled that you’re looking forward to it. Madison was not supposed to be the lead character in book 3, but after she popped up unexpectedly in End of Day, I just had to let her shine in Eventide.

      I’m jazzed you like the cover, too! 🙂
