The best, most fun days in a writer's professional life are the days where we meet readers who love our work. The second most fun days might be when we receive our cover art for a new book. I've been having twice as much fun enjoying the new cover art on my Runaway Brides books since I get to share the thrill with co-author Catherine Mann, who must happens to be my BFF. We both adored this cover for our May 5th release, THERE GOES THE BRIDE, the third story in the Runaway Bride series:
How beautiful is that? The image is so perfect for our heroine, who runs from a society wedding in Atlanta to return to her Tennessee roots. We think you'll enjoy Lindsey Ballard's escape from the altar--and the unlikely companion who joins her for the ride.
If you haven't started the series, the first story is a free download. HOW TO LOSE A GROOM IN 10 DAYS is available now at Amazon, iBooks and more retailers you can check out here. Between Cathy and I, we've had well over a hundred covers for North American releases and this series may have my favorite covers of all time. But it helps that we're writing brides.... brides are always beautiful! And, of course, it's fun to see my name on the same cover as my friend. I can't help but think that's really cool.
We'll be celebrating in person this week when Cathy comes to visit me and polish up BRIDE ON THE RUN, the fourth book in our series. We're going to make time to savor the fun of a joint project and talk about what to do next. At least one decadent lunch is planned, preferably overlooking the Gulf-- fruity drinks in hand. Cheers!
***Have a cover that you love on your keeper shelf? Do you swoon for romantic clinch covers or do you like pretty landscapes? Are you lured by male abs or beautiful gowns? Chat with me today on the boards and I'll give one random poster a copy of my latest Harlequin Superromance, NIGHTS UNDER THE TENNESSEE STARS.
