Let's talk a little about cover design today. And I do mean a little. :-) Above you have the ORIGINAL image used to create the covering for Engaging Sir Isaac. Lovely, but not quite perfect. For one thing, her gown is so blue, and that does not suit the story or the look I wanted for this cover. I asked my designer to try other colors. We also changed the way the model faced.
So then we had this First Cover Design version, which was uploaded to Amazon and used in my cover reveal. Absolutely lovely, but after a few MONTHS of staring at it, I realized I wanted something different.
Below: The final design. We brought the image of the woman closer to the viewer, brightened up her hair and dress just a touch, and there you have it. The final cover design for Engaging Sir Isaac, which is available now for pre-order on Amazon.com.
I love this meme. This meme is both my reading and writing life.
I wrote 2,400-something words on Sir Isaac's story tonight. I wish I could just get the whole thing out at once! But a girl has to sleep. :-)
Coming soon: My 2019 Top 12 Kissing Books, Audiobook Sample, AND some serious fun. 2020 is going to be an incredible year. You're going to want to pay attention. ;-)
This fantastic challenge was posted over at KJ's Book Nook (click here to see her post) and I decided I just had to join in!
I actually read a LOT of books. But it's hard to keep up with which ones I've read. Since becoming an author, I'm often too busy to keep track of what I've read. So it looks like I've read NOTHING. But we're going to fix that in 2020. I'm going to read with a purpose, and KJ inspired me. So, here's my list for her 2020 Reading Challenge.....
You are going to love this one. I couldn't help but shiver, smile, sigh, and sit on the edge of my seat while I listened to the narration for the first time - and I wrote this one! :-) Make sure you give it a listen. It's a sweet, short read. Three hours, fifteen minutes. I think you'll enjoy it. My narrator is phenomenal, too!
Just in case anyone wants to know what I’m working on... This hasn’t been edited, it’s just a DRAFT of what I’m writing this month, for National Novel Writing Month. This is the first scene of a Christmas story that is technically part of my Branches series, though it does not deal directly with the family members we all know and love. Does anyone remember Mr. Ellsworth from Courting the Vicar’s Daughter? He’s now Harry’s steward, and this is how his love story begins.
I write clean and sweet Historical Romance Novels, I live in the desert, I'm a mom of four, madly in love with my husband, and I love to read!
