Cover Reveal of my new novel

My second novel is almost ready to publish. I’m hoping to release it in December (the date is not set yet). On October 23rd I’m revealing the cover that Derek Murphy created for me. He made the cover for my first novel, A Woman Lost.


When I contacted him for the second cover he was busy. I opted to wait and it was worth it. Now I’m super excited to share … but not yet.

I’m looking for bloggers who would like to help me with the cover reveal. If you would like to take part, please leave me a comment below or send me an email:

If you want to participate, I’ll send you all the details: the cover, the blurb, a bio, and some links so you can schedule the post to appear on October 23rd.

And if any of you are planning a cover reveal, are publishing a book, having a sale, or would like any other type of promotion, please let me know. For more details, please visit my writing blog. I’m always willing to help other authors.

  1. Gosh, she’s written two and I haven’t started on the first one yet…!

      Get going! I want to be your first reviewer!

      • Novels scare me (the writing of them, not the reading!) – too long/involved a project 😦
        I admire anyone who can stick it out. And I imagine the editing stage to be absolute hell.

      • TBM says:

        That’s a pretty accurate description of editing. Start with a short story or novella. And brace yourself when you hear back from the editor. You may need a few stiff drinks to deal with the red ink and comments.

    Here you are encouraging me and you’ve got your second out already… what does it entail helping you? ’cause I’ll do it with pleasure, as long as it’s not too complicated…

    • TBM says:

      I’ll supply all the info and all you need to do it upload the cover and copy and past the rest. I’ll add your name to the list. And I really appreciate it.

      And yes, I’m still encouraging you to finish your books. You have two you’ve been working on. I want to read them!
