Choosing Him - Book 2 of the Bluehaven series is out now.
On June 1st, 2021 it will be available for free for one day only. I'm really excited to hear what you all think.
In other news I have been working away at another installment of my Royal Court Series. It's been nice to step away from the Tudors but I have missed them and am happy to be going home.
By the start of my career the importance of networking had been drilled into my head. But as most people I dreaded doing it. Networking became this thing I would avoid doing at all costs. It was a combination of feeling shy, but also feeling like the whole interaction was insincere. Almost a transaction rather than a conversation between people. Over time it has evolved into this scary monster that I run in fear from.
However, there are times when I push aside my biases and fear and do reach out. And then I am surprised (usually pleasantly).
Recently, I reached out to a photographer for photos for my book covers and not only did I discover interesting information about the world of photography and those large websites that sell stock photography but also made a meaningful connection. It was a pleasure to work directly with Kathy Servian and the images I purchased from her were equally amazing.
If anyone is looking for stock images for this book covers please consider contacting her through her website.
In the future I will remember how important reaching out can be (and to not be scared of it).
I couldn't resist. My fingers were itching to have a go at rebranding my royal court series. I also wanted to add more cohesion to the covers.
So far just the ebook covers have been updated. I will have the paperback and hardcovers updated soon. It also takes a lot longer for the changes to be reflected on that.
In other news. The fifth book in the series shall come out in Late July/August. Stay tuned!
It must have been at least a few months since I've changed a cover. Maybe less. Regardless, I decided now would be a good - no - a great time to update a cover on a book that's not even that old.
But c'est la vie.
At least I'm very happy with how it turned out.
The sequel to this book is currently at the editors. Can't wait to get it back and start working on the cover for that one too. And since you are asking: yes, I am procrastinating other work.
