Are you tired of cover reveals? TOO BAD, 'cause it's my turn!

I've waited a long time for this!

After receiving mixed feedback on my original cover, Sourcebooks put it to a vote on their site, "Discover A New Love." Readers were very vocal, and the design team listened. After considering all the comments, they returned to the drawing board and revealed my new cover today. I love it! By the way, comments are still open on their blog if you'd like to share your opinion.

Haha, thanks! That reminds me of an author friend who used to (jokingly) tell me to "Have a sultry day."

Thanks, guys!

Moon Daughter, my favorite tag line is on the back with the blurb. "Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where first loves find second chances."

Makes me want to go swimming nekkid, so I'm guessing it works.

The back tag-line is really sweet, but the front one is sexy

Hooray for skinny-dipping! (There's a racy nekkid scene set in that pond, btw!)

Moon: That's a good point. The front tag line communicates that this isn't a sweet inspirational romance, so readers know what to expect.

Thanks, everyone! I think this style gives us more potential for series branding, too. I'm eager to see what the designer does with the next two covers.
