I posted my new cover on my Facebook author page already, but it hit me I should share it here on the blog.
Yes, I realize I’ve been neglecting the blog despite what I learned at RWA Nationals last summer. I’m trying to get better — promise. Things are still crazy here, what with the new job and everything.
Without further ado, here’s the cover for BREAKING ALL THE RULES.
It’s set to come out the week of March 19. In fact, I’m going through the galley now.
BREAKING, about a by-the-book mental health facility administrator who must hire a Klingon interpreter, is a departure from my Love & Baseball stories. I’m so excited to let my geek side frolic.
Some rules are meant to be broken. If only they could agree on which ones…
Faced with compliance of a ridiculous new Arizona law, by-the-book mental health care facility administrator Allyson Cunningham must find an interpreter who speaks a made-for-TV language. Prime candidate Donovan Marshall has the language skills she so desperately needs, but shows a disturbing disregard for all rules and restrictions. While Allyson struggles to secure another perfect rating for her facility, convince Donovan to conform and control her inappropriate attraction to an employee, Donovan makes it his prime directive to persuade starchy Ally it doesn’t hurt to break a few rules.
Today I’m bringing you this blog’s first cover reveal. Sure, I’ve shared my own covers in the past, but never as part of an organized cover reveal.
What prompted me to join in this time? The author, H. Danielle Crabtree, is a friend of mine. We used to work together at the Arizona Daily Sun, until she left for sunny California. And she’s been the editor for my indie releases, HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS and BLIND DATE BRIDE.
Plus, the tour is organized by Alex Rosa at Wanderlust Book Tours, who did my blog tour for SLIDING INTO HOME. (Dani introduced us, as a matter of fact.)
Without further delay, I’m pleased and excited to bring you the cover for H. Danielle Crabtree’s FIRE WOLF (Fire & Reign 1).
Cool, isn’t it?
In case you hadn’t guessed, it falls outside my contemporary romantic comedy kingdom. It’s young adult fantasy.
If trouble can be found, Lady Myah Leicht will find it…or so her mother and uncle believe.
As the future High Lady of Nordlin, council meetings and polite socialization rule Myah’s life and challenge her forthright nature. But playing by her family’s rules is a necessary evil if she ever wants to convince her uncle that she is ready to learn to use her magic.
However, when a plague rips through the capital city, Myah throws the rules out the window and joins the son of a visiting nobleman on a raid to steal medicine from a neighboring kingdom. When the venture fails, an enemy soldier—a boy not much older than she is—pursues Myah into the forest. She is certain she is going to die at his hands until a bear-size wolf saves her life.
Safe at home, she tries to forget the wolf and the boy as she navigates the politics of court. Her life gets more complicated when she finds herself once again face-to-face with the boy from the woods. Although suspicious of his motivations, her instincts tell her to trust him.
But trusting him could bring war to the northern kingdom, and jeopardize those she holds dear.
And then there is the matter of the wolf…

OK, OK. Technically, it’s not a reveal. You’ve probably already seen it on Facebook and/or Twitter, but now I’m plastering it here, on my blog: The cover for my April release from Turquoise Morning Press.
Gorgeous, isn’t it?
I love Jenn’s striking eyes. You can certainly see why her sister took Jade as a stage name.
SLIDING INTO HOME (until recently known as Untitled Book 3) comes out in mid-April. I can’t wait to share Greg and Jenn’s story.
Here’s a sneak peek:
More than anything, Arizona Condors first baseman Greg Bartlesby wants to make his own name in the big leagues. Too bad being the son of MLB legend Jake “Big Man” Bartlesby makes that impossible. Even worse? His attempts to differentiate himself from his old man more often land him in legal trouble. His latest brush with the law brings him in contact with an attorney he’s met before — as a dancer at the club where he was arrested … for protecting her.
Jenn Simpson isn’t a stripper—not that she can convince her bonehead client her twin is the one doing the dancing. When Greg offers her sister a job at his father’s Foundation, Jenn is the one who accepts, at her sister’s urging. She soon discovers she likes the work—and her new boss. As she and Greg forge a friendship and more, she knows it’s time to convince him she’s not who he thinks. But when his father’s hospitalization compels Greg to fast-track his leap to the majors by capitalizing on Big Jake’s fame, it might be too late for her to come clean.
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter or even Pinterest, you’ve already seen the cover for BEAUTY AND THE BALLPLAYER—probably more than once. However, it recently occurred to me that I have not yet shared it here on the blog.
Allow me to remedy that problem, pronto, by introducing the cover for BEAUTY, my March 2013 release from Turquoise Morning Press.
When it turned up in my email inbox, I might have squealed and startled three sleeping dogs.
