Christian’s Promise Cover Reveal Coming Soon!

The cover reveal for Christian’s Promise (book #1 of the Christian’s Kisses series) and specs on the book will be posted on Friday, April 21st. Make sure to check it out! In celebration of the book’s upcoming release, I’m doing some special promotions because…well, it’s more fun that way, right?

I want to get some love on the CK fan page, which has had few followers begin to trickle in. I wasn’t going to use it much, but since more people are following it now, I will update it more often and post some exclusive content for the CK series on there.

AND, as a bonus for my followers on the page, the book trailer for the series will be a FB exclusive so it will be posted on the CK fan page before it shows up on any of my other social media sites. I won’t say when, either. You gotta follow the page wait for that surprise. Hee hee.

So, check out the page and give it a like. Thanks!

Update on the Christian’s Kisses Series

I’m doing a cover reveal for the Christian’s Kisses’ books soon, as well as releasing the book trailer. Yay!

I’ve decided to call the prequel (which is a novella) to the series “Book 1”. It’s easier for everyone if I do that. I know it’s not a “full” novel but…

Since I decided to do that, there are now seven books in the series. The titles will be revealed during the cover reveal (I don’t think I’ll reveal the blurbs for each one until they are ready for release).

The date for the first book’s release isn’t set in stone yet, but it should be releasing soon (like within a month or two).

If anyone has any questions about the series, or for me, just shoot me a message either via FB or email.

Happy Saturday!


Book Trailer for Prince

Yay! I finally get to share this with you all. I’m so excited! This is the trailer for Prince, my first release with Hartwood Publishing.  It will be debuting in December  🙂


I.O.W.A. book signing event

 

IMG_1995-002I went to the I.O.W.A (Imagine Other Worlds with Authors) event yesterday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I originally went to see a friend (Author Tricia Andersen), but also wanted to see the other authors.

The only issue I had with it was that it was hard to find the authors because they were so scattered. I think they could’ve benefited to having their very own area where they all congregated. Otherwise, it was an nice little event and I had fun attending.

While there, I also got to see my biggest, and most in-depth design I ever did, too. It was the life-size poster of Max from Breaking the Cycle. Though the books in the series now have new covers, Tricia put it up at the event so I could see it. I thought that was sweet of her.

Very neat thing to see my design in the “flesh”. This design was my hardest to date. A lot of  work went into this design because it lost a lot of detail when blown up. I think I repainted/blended every inch of that man by hand in PS. So, it’s actually a digital painting, which is why it turned out with such a painterly effect.  I think if anyone else but Tricia asked me to do a project like this, I would’ve said no.

Anyway, gripes aside, I’m attached to the design because of all the added work that went into it. If she ever has to ditch it because of it’s new cover, I’ll take it. Though….I’m sure the cover model we used for it might “fight” me for it. Yeah…sorry, bad MMA joke.


Cover Reveal For Reclaim!

I love cover reveals!

Here is the cover for S.L. Stacy’s upcoming novel, Reclaim, the third book in the Reborn series. It’s release date is October 25th 2016. You all had to wait until today to see it, but I’m so special I got to see it BEFORE S.L. did. Yeah…designer privilege lol. I designed all three book covers for the series. S.L. is a great person to work with, as well as a wonderful friend and writer. So…mark your calendars for this book’s release!

Book Description:

Carly just lost the last week of her life trapped in Pandora, the space between universes. Most of it was spent navigating an illusion created by her only companion, Dolos, the god of trickery. Even so, the time Carly spent there changed her. She fell in love. She’s more fearless and more determined than ever to leave the darkest parts of her past behind. And she’s learned that, sometimes, family is the one you make for yourself, like the one she’s found at Gamma Lambda Phi.

But a lot can happen in one week, and Carly returns to a sorority in jeopardy. A curse has been placed on her sisters, and it’s up to her to break it. With the Gammas out of commission, Eric’s halfling army is plotting something big, and Carly and her sisters are the only ones who can stop them. To make matters worse, Dolos is working for the bad guys and up to his old tricks.

Time is running out, but the antidote for the curse is proving impossible to find. To save her sisters and stop Eric’s army, Carly has some tough choices to make. But will she choose duty and sisterhood, or the kind of passion that comes around only once in a lifetime?


October’s a long ways away, so in the meantime, go check out the rest of the books in the series to get prepared! Reborn and Relapse. You can find them on Amazon!

Cover Reveal: Secret Scarlet

This new cover for Scarlet is Leta (Scarlet’s biggest fan), approved! Like it? I adore it! The girl on the original cover was not my Scarlet, so that’s why I love this version so much. Wicked awesome. The best part of designing my own books is getting exactly what I want.  ❤

Cover Art Reveal: The Gateway

the gateway banner

gatewaycoverdraft3Here is the cover art for my next release, The Gateway, which should be debuting this summer!

And, as an added bonus, head over to Amazon to download a copy of Nightwalkers’ Beginnings, which is free for today only!

The Gateway is a horror novel with a touch of romance.  I don’t really like to call it the other way around, because horror seems to be the biggest theme.

And like my other demons, Apollo has a lot of vampire tendencies as well as hellish, ghoulish ones.  He’s probably the most evil, badass villian I’ve ever created.  The book pushes it as far as horror romance goes, so that’ll either be a good or bad thing for readers. We’ll see.

I’m also pleased I got the mirrors into the design, because Stella uses them a lot in the story.  Okay, enough rambling about the book, you’ll have to read it to find out more, right?

And, check out the book’s info page to learn more about it you haven’t.  Look out for the book trailer as well, which I’ll post later this week!
