New covers!

I have long wished to rebrand my first six books by having professional, new covers. I commissioned new covers for The Guardian Trilogy a few months ago, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the new look. I made the original covers myself, and I had never been truly satisfied with them. Xander deserved the cover picture, and now he has it. All is right in the angel world. Guardian Trilogy_Ebook

Once I saw the difference in the way my Guardian books looked, I had to do the same for my Yours by Design series. I know I really should wait until I have all three covers done before I reveal the new cover for Accidentally Yours: Yours by Design, Book 1. However, I am an impatient woman, and the new cover is just too beautiful to hide for several more weeks. The new cover for the second book, Sincerely Yours: Yours by Design, Book 2 is already finished. I’m simply waiting for the final files. My designer just told me she’d send them this weekend.

Accidentally Yours - 3D

I am way beyond excited!

Isn’t that cover lovely? Both photos are of my younger daughter. The modern photos were made by Trevor Sullivan during her senior year of college, six years ago. Anna Beckham did the Regency photoshoot with Melanie in August at Rosewood on Country Club, a venue in Lancaster, South Carolina. Jennifer McCoy sewed the costumes – quite amazing since she lives in Texas, and we did everything through messaging.

Shoutout to Laura Hile. She inspired me by rebranding her Mercy’s Embrace series. In fact, her foray into professional covers when she published Darcy by Any Other Name convinced me to hire professional designers for Understanding Elizabeth and A Very Austen Christmas.

Go big, or go home. Right?

A Very Austen Anthology

When My Characters Won’t Behave

More to Love, Maestro, & In My Dreams

When Laura Hile, Wendi Sotis, Barbara Cornthwaite, and I decided to collaborate on another anthology in our A Very Austen series, I began to write More to Love, thinking it would be my story in A Very Austen Valentine. Nope. Beckett, Darcy, and Elizabeth commandeered that rowboat and made it into an aircraft carrier.

More to Love line 4

Since More to Love would be too long to be my entry, I turned to Maestro as my story, but Mary, Alessandro Landini, and Thaddeus Beckett were determined to have a full-length book, too.

HONEYMOON

Now I’m writing In My Dreams for the anthology, and I am DETERMINED that it will not pass twenty thousand words. That’s a short story for me. I’m limiting my characters to Darcy and Elizabeth with a few servants.
