Cover Reveal for A BRILLIANT DECEPTION!

As an author, waiting for your cover can be a nail-biting experience. Covers are so important, yet most of the time we have little (to no) say in its design. My editor at Kensington is great–he always gives me the opportunity for input, and I usually make up a Pinterest page of ideas and comparables. Even still…you never know how it’s going to turn out.… Read the rest

One Month To Go…

It seems like I only just launched my first novel…and now it’s almost time for my second one to be released! I’m about a month away from sending A MAGNIFICENT CRIME (Agency of Burglary & Theft #2) out into the world. The official release date is June 5, 2014. Just in time for summer beach reading, yes? I’ve been busy getting organized for my virtual book tour (a.k.a. … Read the rest

Cover Reveal For Book Two!

I have got an excellent surprise for you today. My editor just sent me the cover image for my second book (the sequel to A BEAUTIFUL HEIST, and book two in my Agency of Burglary & Theft series). Can you hear the excitement coming through my keyboard right now?? Until today I hadn’t even publicly disclosed the title yet, so here’s a double shot….title AND cover reveal all in one.… Read the rest

The dream of every writer…

Every writer fantasizes about the day they can hold a real, live book with their name on it. And it’s not that it wasn’t a thrill to have my debut novel published in digital format in June of this year, because it definitely was. Also, I happen to love e-books, and am clinically addicted to my e-reader. But, well…I have to admit there was a fair bit of squealing at my house when THIS arrived on the doorstep: Yes, people, that is a real, live paperback!… Read the rest

A Beautiful Heist On Pinterest

I started playing around on Pinterest about a year ago and, like many people, immediately fell down the rabbit hole. Pinterest is even more habit-forming than movie popcorn and peanut M&Ms. (Yes, together. Have you tried? Ridiculous.) One of my fellow bloggers at YMC coined the hashtag #pintervention and sometimes, I seriously think that might be warranted. But today, I am giving this little addiction free rein!… Read the rest

The Road To Publication: Book Blurbs, Covers, and Pre-Orders.

A few weeks ago my editor sent me the little blurb the marketing department at Kensington created for my novel. How fun is that? This is the copy that will appear on retail sites for its release as an ebook. When it’s printed, this will be the cover blurb. I must admit, it gives me a delighted shiver to know that a marketing department is actually putting time and effort into this.… Read the rest

Judging A Book By Its Cover

As we speak, my editor at Kensington is working with his art department to come up with a fab cover for my first novel. But before he did that, he asked me if I had any thoughts on the design of the cover. Which came as a wonderful surprise. (And so much fun, I can’t even describe.) Being a newbie, I figured cover design was exclusively the domain of the people at the publishing house and they wouldn’t be particularly interested in my input.… Read the rest
