Got Covers??

I love getting new covers. It's like Christmas, when you open an package to discover if you have a new toaster, or a fabulous new piece of jewelry. With covers, I tend to open an email, download a file and hit, open file...then watch as the cover appears. Most of my covers I've at least liked, a few not-so-much, and every now and again I get one I absolutely adore.

Well, I've recently received my October and December covers...and adore them both! It's like hitting a lottery...well, not quite, but almost like hitting the lottery. Want to see???

The House on Briar Hill Road is my October Harlequin Everlasting Love, and Everything But a Groom is my December Avalon, it's the first book in my Everything But... trilogy. And they're both beautiful.

Yes, I've got covers...and I'm thrilled with both. It's the lottery and Christmas all wrapped up in one!

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer!

Those are great covers!

HollyJacobs said...

Thanks, Crystal and Stacy! I'm totally jazzed about them both!

I have had some less...well, wonderful covers! There was one that I swear had the Village People on it. I mean, don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the Village People, but truly, they don't say romantic hero to me! LOL

Hi Holly,

What great covers! I can't wait to read these books! You are an awesome writer and I have really enjoyed some of your other books so I am really looking forward to reading these as well!

I hope your 4th of July was a fantastic one!

Michele,

Thanks! I'm glad you're looking forward to them. I should give you a heads up, thought. Most of my books are either comedies, or lighter humorous ones. The House on Briar Hill Road...isn't. There are moments that are lighter, but it's a much heavier books than the rest of mine. I'm very proud of it, but I don't want readers to think they're getting a comedy! LOL

Oh, and as a cool side note, eHarlequin.com will be running a short story that readers can read for free, starting Sept. 10. The story, The Moments, is tied to the book. It sort of fills in a "missing years" section from the book. Anyway, I'm hoping enjoy the bonus read.

Thanks again!!
