Announcing the New Redemption

It's not here yet but Redemption is getting reworked the way Heartless did. Well, perhaps not so much, but it will have a new cover and interior formatting as well as a bit of editing. I've been told to quit changing my stories and I may need to heed that advice or I'll make myself crazy. (If you want to know how crazy Heartless made me, check out the Heartless blog: The Heartless Duke.) 

Meanwhile, this blog will see more action with this revamp on the horizon. The reason this one is next is because I already own all the stock photos I'm using in the new cover. Spellbound and Betrayal each require photos that I don't have the money to buy yet. But the end of February will change all that. 

And just to tease you a bit, here's a snippet of the new cover: 

The cover isn't final yet, but this is part of the "very close to final" cover. And this blog still needs a header. Gotta add that to my creative "to do" list. Sheesh. 

If you are unfamiliar with Redemption, I posted a short excerpt on my author blog for Sweet Saturday Samples

Have a lovely, lovely day!! ♥♥

More Updates

You know, this blog needs a header. I wish I knew a halfway decent graphic designer who could make one for me... 

In other news, Redemption will receive a new cover. I found the perfect (and I mean PERFECT) stock photo on Dreamstime and with a few suggestions from a perfectly lovely (and perfectly talented) fellow author of clean romance (you know who you are), I think the new cover is almost perfect. (Any editor worth his/her salt would slap me for the overuse of perfect.) 

In my previous post, I promised my readers that I'd introduce Jenny. Well, I will but it will have to wait until the next post. Or maybe the one after that. I'm not entirely sure. I need to find all my notes about her (which are several years old) and make sure I really do know her as well as I think I do.

So, for those of you awaiting her intro, please be patient. I will also introduce Dare...just as soon as I find him...

Lions and Tigers and...Oh wait! Wrong Story...

The title has nothing to do with the post. This blog was way behind in updates and that title is what popped into my head. Weird, right? *shrug* 

Redemption was free from Smashwords mid-March for Read an Ebook Week. I should have posted that here but I didn't. Bad author! 

Would it be weird for me to say that Redemption makes me laugh? It does, quite often. Made me cry once or twice too. 

I found a lovely model on Dreamstime who looks like Gwen and Jenny. I'm saying she's Jenny, though, since Jenny is more the focus of Redemption than Gwen is. It will get a new cover eventually and maybe an interior revamp as well. It probably needs it. Maybe the book even needs a bit of lengthening. I don't know. That's for the readers to say. 

So, the next post will be to introduce Jenny to the readers and reveal her loveliness. Despite her penchant for trouble, she really is a lovely girl. In Honor, which is about her brother Connor and takes place several years prior to Redemption, she's a sweet girl who's not nearly so jaded. Perhaps some excerpts from Honor will be posted here as well. 

Thank you for reading my senseless ramblings. Comments are always welcome but considering how shy I am about commenting, I won't blame anyone for not doing so. 

Love to all!
