In case you missed it on Facebook (I hop back and forth these days), I’m excited to share the cover of my debut contemporary romance novella, Serendipity Summer!
Serendipity Summer is the first book, of four, in the Riverbend Way series, set in the rustic and charming mountain town of Riverbend Way, Tennessee. I’ve enjoyed developing the main characters and the side characters–including a couple of memorable animals that will make a regular appearance, throughout the series. I have wanted to hold on to the story for a while, now–but as everything has been coming together nicely, and just for the sake of making sure everything is just how I want it, the release date has been adjusted to the last week of October.
I am still learning the publishing ropes, so if anything changes, I will be sure to post the changes, and keep you updated. All should go well, though, because I’ve published, once before. I’m looking forward to having a release day celebration with giveaways and prizes! This is an exciting time! I have had the honor of being invited to be featured at a book signing event and have begun to order swag and promo items in preparation for my first release! (more details to come.)
Without readers, we authors wouldn’t be able to do what we do–so, thank you!
I am still tweaking the blurb, but I’d like to share the first teaser–and the second teaser (not yet posted to Facebook), of Serendipity Summer. But first, take a look at this beauty of a cover The Killion Group designed for me with images from Hot Damn Designs!
Her gaze traveled back up to his gorgeous eyes.
Eyes looking upon her with a familiar heat she’d seen only once before.
She struggled not to choke on the water as it dawned on her who was standing before her. A man who had made it into many of her dreams, but never, permanently into her life.
The sound was far off in the distance, but Jake gradually became aware he was the person being observed as an older and feminine voice chimed in.
“No, Kady-bug. Not your Uncle Trevor. Just a friend of Mommy’s. We were having a sleepover.”
Jake resisted the urge to chuckle and kept his eyes closed to listen in.
“Why is he on the couch, in a suit, and not in jammies?” the young girl asked.
“Sometimes at sleepovers, not everyone wears jammies. They can sleep where ever they want to.”
Anna indulged the girl.
Now trying to swallow down a full-fledged belly laugh, Jake hid the grin on his face, knowing Anna would be angry as hell if he continued to pretend to sleep while the kid put her through the great inquisition.
Finally letting a deep chuckle go, he opened heavy eyes.
