One of the joys of working with a smaller publisher is getting cover art super fast. Once again, another great design from Rae Monet. Don’t you agree?
Here’s the back cover copy. This book is coming soon – Fall 2014. I can’t wait to share Devlin’s story.
A wise Satyr always pays his debts: Pawn shop owner Devlin Ward isn’t stupid. When Karma appears on his doorstep to cash in an old favor, he can’t refuse. It’s a simple request – accept a delivery and keep it safe. Unfortunately for Devlin, the “package” is a sullen teenage oracle who insists that he locate the Feather of Truth. Or else.
A promise is a promise: Mary Swain, aka Ma’at, Goddess of Truth, always honors her word. For the first time in centuries, she’s finally free of her debts and wants a new life, preferably away from Mystic, where every quaint shop and cozy restaurant is a reminder of her unreliable ex-boyfriend. Finally, she’s leaving and nothing’s going to stop her.
But when Devlin approaches her with the oracle’s dire warning and a frazzled plea for help, she can’t resist a tempting new adventure or his quietly sexy allure. Despite his best efforts to feign indifference, she knows Devlin is attracted to her too. He claims to have deep, dark secrets that even the Goddess of Truth can’t pry out of him. Or can she?
Feast your eyes on the cover of Misfortune Cookie! Another outstanding design from Rae Monet!
In other news – Mystic Hero is done (well, the first draft) and is in the hands of my beta readers.
But don’t think I’m sitting around doing nothing. Next up – completing Lachlan’s Curse. I hope to finish the first draft by the end of November.
Wish me luck!
It’s official! I have the cover for The Undead Space Initiative by Lex at Winterheart Designs! Thank you Lex!
Happy Friday everyone. Please stop by the Scribes as we wrap up our first theme week – joining an organization. Check out my post – Don’t Go it Alone!
I received something very exciting this week – the cover art for Mystic Ink!
When my editor sent me the cover questionnaire, I realized that I had no idea what I wanted. In the past, I had a few ideas, but they were all kind of nebulous and strictly in my head.
The questionnaire was a reality check. Mystic Ink needed a cover because it was going to be published.
OMG I sold a book!!
I did. It’s real. I didn’t imagine it.
Take that Mr. Doubt Monster.
So, I thought long and hard, then responded with my preferences and information about the story and characters.
I was eager to see the cover for the first time. With my name on it!
Needless to say, I was thrilled with the results. I now have something tangible to look it.
Next hurdle, edits. When I get those, you can be sure I’ll share that experience too.
Tell me, when have you anticipated something? Did the reality meet your expectations? Or would you do things differently?
