#TuesdayBookBlog #Coverreveal SON OF A PREACHER MAN by Karen M. Cox (@karenmcox1932). Another winner!

Hi all:

I recently read a book by Karen M. Cox (check here my review of I Could Write a Book) and when Rosie Amber told me the author was looking for ARC readers for her new book, I had to join in. I’ve read the book and I’ll tell you more about it early in July (it’s worth waiting for, but my lips are sealed!) but here I bring you the cover reveal so you can make some room for it on your list.

Here I leave you in Karen’s safe hands:

Thank you so much for letting me visit with you and your readers today! I’m really excited about the upcoming summer release of Son of a Preacher Man. It’s a special book for me, an original story inspired by Pride and Prejudice, that was originally published as At the Edge of the Sea in 2013. For its five-year birthday, I’ve re-edited it, given back its original title, Son of a Preacher Man, and with the help of Shari Ryan, of Madhat Covers, and Joshua Hollis, who created the image, I’ve given it a new cover too.

Description:

“I forget that you’re a fella sometimes.”

“Gee, thanks.”

I never forgot that she was a girl. Not for one second…

  1. 1959. The long, hot Southern summer bakes the sleepy town of Orchard Hill. Billy Ray Davenport, an aspiring physician and only son of an indomitable traveling minister, is a young man with a plan that starts with working in a small-town doctor’s office before he begins medical school in the fall. Handsome, principled, and keenly observant, he arrives in town to lodge with the Millers, the local doctor’s family. He never bargained for Lizzie Quinlan—a complex, kindred spirit who is beautiful and compassionate, yet scorned by the townsfolk. Could a girl with a reputation be different than she seems? With her quirky wisdom and a spine of steel hidden beneath an effortless sensuality, Lizzie is about to change Billy Ray’s life—and his heart—forever.

A realistic look at first love, told by an idealistic young man, Son of a Preacher Man is a heartwarming coming of age tale set in a simpler time.

Author Bio:

Award-winning author, Karen M Cox, writes fiction brushed with history and romance. She specializes in 20th century Austenesque tales in small-town settings: 1932, Find Wonder in All Things, Undeceived, and I Could Write a Book. She has also dabbled in Regency tales: Her Frank Churchill story, “An Honest Man,” appears in the anthology, Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen’s Rakes and Gentlemen Rogues, and she has a short story in the upcoming collection, Rational Creatures.

Although born in Washington state, Karen has enough Southerner in her—due to family history and a long residence in Kentucky—to ask young people in her small town, “Do I know your mama?” with a straight face. She lives there with her husband, encourages her children (who, thankfully, aren’t too far away), and spoils her granddaughter.

#Coverreveal HER by Danielle Rose (@DRoseAuthor) #YA #Horror short-story If you thought your high-school was scary, you’ve seen nothing yet!

Hi all:
As you know, every so often I take part in book blog tours or cover reveals (I’ve been doing mostly reviews and reblogs recently due to time constraints, but do not hesitate to ask) and this one was one of them. I go for books that intrigue me and sometimes it might be just something I fancy at the time. This one it was the fact that is a short story and horror, so it is in one of my favourite genres and something that I might be able to fit in between two longer books. I hope it sounds intriguing to you too. (Of course, the title also helped).
Title: HER
Genre: YA Horror, Short Story
Publisher: OfTomes Publishing
Cover Art by:  Gwenn Danae
Cover Text by: Eight Little Pages
Expected Release Date: Sept. 19th, 2017

Blurb: 
Kemper Academy is over a hundred years old, but it has only recently reopened after a series of murders and stories of hauntings shut it down. Avlynn, a new student, refuses to let the rumors scare her, chalking them up to a bit of friendly freshman hazing. But when night falls and screams draw her from her room, she finds the truth is much more horrifying than any ghost story. 
Danielle Rose holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine. Currently residing in the Midwest, where she spends her days dreaming of warmer temperatures, when she’s not writing, she enjoys pretending she lives in California, spending an embarrassing amount of time at Hobby Lobby, and binge-watching Netflix.

#Thanks all! You’re awesome! And if you want to read more… #TuesdayBookBlog

Hi all:

I wanted to thank you first of all for your help. I am overwhelmed by the huge response to my question about the cover to my next book. To tell you the truth I thought I would have a few replies and things would be pretty close for all of them. But I was wrong on both accounts. I got a lot of comments (ah, and the cover artist decided to run his own enquiry in his Facebook page and the results were pretty similar there) and a big majority of people went for the same cover (if only thing were that clear in Spanish politics, for instance… Well…)

So, drumroll… The runaway winner is:

Possible cover 1
Possible cover 1

I must admit I’m toying with the idea of perhaps swapping and changing covers, at least in the e-book version, to see if we were right (although I doubt the numbers would make it a very significant experiment, but nonetheless…)

The story, as I told you, is written, but as is the case with my novels, having to work, correct and publish at the same time in two versions, the English and the Spanish, slows everything down. And summer is not a time to go rushing around, but to take it easy, so I’ll keep you informed.

The audiobook for the prequel to this series should be ready soon, so I hope to bring you news of that (and free codes) in the near future.

Ah, and just in case you want to read a bit more about the story, I’ve published the prologue and the first draft chapter in Wattpad, here. Go and visit if you have the time.

Thanks very much for your help. And you know the drill, like, share, comment and CLICK!

Book launch book promo Cover reveal Escaping Psychiatry. Beginnings

Help,please! Which #cover do you prefer? My WIP is getting closer but can’t decide. #Tuesdaybookblog

Hi all:

Sorry to bother you again today. I wasn’t planning on sharing another post today, but my cover artist, Ernesto Valdés, sent me three suggestions (well, the same cover in different colours) for my next book, Escaping Psychiatry 2. The Case of the Swapped Bodies and I’ve been checking the covers and sharing with some people for the last few days but can’t make up my mind. As I had already programmed a review for today that I had read as a member of Rosie’s team I didn’t want to change that, but I know this will be bothering me for a while. Any chance you could give me  your opinion?

This is the description so far…

The Case of the Swapped Bodies (Escaping Psychiatry 2)

A woman shot dead. No enemies, no motive, only a story about how she swapped bodies with another woman in her computer. The other woman in the story, the owner of the swapped body, goes into labour and won’t talk.

When FBI Agent Dave Dean asks psychiatrist/writer Mary Miller for her assistance, she doesn’t know that The Case of the Swapped Bodies is not the only mystery in Port Haven. A hit and run, an armed robbery gone wrong and questions about family traditions, priorities and legacies come into play and complicate matters. The line between fact and fiction is more tenuous than anybody realised and suspense is on the menu.

This is the third book in the Escaping Psychiatry series and it poses new challenges for Mary Miller. And not all the challenges are professional ones. How do you carry on when you’ve survived the unthinkable?

Here the three suggested covers

Number 1

Possible cover 1
Possible cover 1

Number 2

Possible cover 2
Possible cover 2

Number 3

Possible cover 3
Possible cover 3

So you can take a more informed decision, these are the covers of the first two.

All help will be appreciated. I promise to share a bit more about the novel soon (I’m waiting on edits but if anybody fancies an early read I hope we should be able to get some copies ready soon), but this is going around my head (with a few other things…) Ah, and just in case, a quick reminder that the prequel is available free in most places.

Ah, and although this is something different, as the post is about the genre (more or less), I thought I’d take the chance to share this survey that Lit World Interviews are running about the genre mystery. Why do you like it? Check here and go answer!

Thanks so much for mostly checking and looking, please, let me know what you think, and like, share, comment and bring everybody! Oh, and don’t forget to reply to the survey!

Cover reveal

A very special cover reveal #Broken. In aid of the #ShuskeyFamily

Hi all:

I normally don’t share posts on Monday, but when I saw a request to share the cover reveal for this book, and the good cause it was in aid of, I had to bring it here. Rachel Orman, the author, has decided to donate the proceeds from this novel to help pay the medical bills of her family friends, the Shuskey family. Please, help if you can. Many thanks. For those who might be interested in the book, pay attention to the warning.

Broken

Rachel Orman

All proceeds will be donated to the Shuskey family to help with medical bills.

synopsis

Life can be hard. Life can break you. What do you do then?

Faith has been living in a physically abusive marriage for years. What she doesn’t expect is for everything in her life to change unexpectedly. Her husband loses his job, which forces her to go back to work.

Working as an Emergency Room nurse forces her to hide her home life while also gives her a freedom she hasn’t had in the five years since she married.

It also gives her the out she has been so desperately seeking.

However, once she is free from the man who has held her down and abused her for so long, she fears that it won’t last. He isn’t willing to let her go easily.

While she is learning to love in a normal and peaceful environment, she fears for her life all the same.

She refuses to let her ex get a hold of her again, but what happens if he does? Can she handle living that life again after finally experiencing the tender love of another?

NOTE: This is not a happy story. This story has non con scenes and doesn’t not have a HEA. There are many things that could be triggers for many people so be forewarned going in. Abuse and suicide are two of the major ones, but not the only ones.

about-the-author

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my
children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the
keyboard as I work on my next work.

I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write.
I’ll write just about anything once to learn from it. I’ve even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you’ll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.

Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
