In case you missed me smearing my new cover all over everything yesterday, I’m posting it for your viewing pleasure here on my blog ‘cuz that’s what we writer types do–we share, then overshare. Or is that just me?
*big happy sigh* It’s so perfect, from the typeface right down to the brand of tractor Fritz and his brothers use. Easy enough to figure out, right?
Normally I don’t get covers until a few weeks before release day (if I’m that lucky), but the cover art department at Ellora’s Cave is on the ball with this one. I haven’t even started edits yet, and I won’t have a release date until those are finished. I’m thinking early to mid-summer maybe, possibly, hopefully, because I’m almost finished with Straddling the Fence, the next book in the series and I <3 that one so hard it's not even funny.
But back to Betting the Farm… I don’t have an official blurb yet, and to be honest, I suck at writing them so this will more than likely change, but here’s the gist of the book:
After high school Kai Donnelly left behind her small hometown of Serenity, Georgia, for college and to escape her parents’ expectations. But that’s not all she turned her back on. Fritz Carter was the country boy who never met with her parents’ approval because he had clay on his boots and grease stains on his jeans. At seventeen, he’d become Kai’s everything, and that scared her to death. Leaving was the only thing she knew to do.
Fritz can hardly believe his eyes when a sexy blonde ghost from his past comes stomping into Sam’s Tavern on a Saturday night. Seeing Kai again brings all those old emotions rushing back–love, lust, happiness–but there’s also a healthy dose of hurt still in the mix for the way she left him behind.
Fritz wants her back, for good this time, and he’s determined to get his wish. But there’s still the annoying matter of her rich, uppity family, hell-bent on keeping the two of them apart.
I made a kick-ass Pinterest board for it too.
I’ll start sharing some excerpts soon! So, what do you think?
