It is that time again, my friends! I have labored over another novel and am prepared to send it out into the world. This novel is slated to become available in ebook on October 20th. And I couldn’t be more excited!
The Cover. This was the first time I worked with this particular cover artist, Amanda. But what a talented artist she is! I was very much impressed with her ability to feel out the novel from the details provided for her and put them on a cover. I do love Cora Graphics, but I was not at all disappointed with Amanda’s skill. Her work definitely put a smile on my face 🙂
The Story. The blurb for “Hope in Cripple Creek” can be found here. This story follows the obstacles facing Katherine Matthews when she returns home to take an interim teaching position. But something very tragic happened here once, something that made her want to leave. And made an enemy among her peers. Will he still be among the townsfolk when she returns? Can her heart find peace and even love in the midst of loss?
The Collaboration. At each one of these cover reveals, I always at least mention my publisher. As well I should. Clean Reads is a wonderful company and its owner, Stephanie, is everything you could want. She is an author herself, so she truly knows what it’s like to walk in our shoes. But she knows and runs the other sides of the business so well. I feel blessed to be a part of the Clean Reads family. And I must thank my editors, who pulled more out of me this book than ever before.
Here it is…and so, I have rambled on about all these things. Now, I present to you the unveiling of this cover for the first time:
