Spectral Cover


I'm excited to share with you the cover of my soon to be released book, SPECTRAL. I hope you like it as much as I do. It was so awesome to work with Claudia McKinney at Phatpuppyart.com to create this baby.  They found the perfect model to represent Jewel that I actually got goosebumps when I saw her picture. After the photo-shoot, I chose the pose I wanted, and Claudia pulled out all the stops and created her magic. I can't tell you how amazing it was to see my dream come to life so to speak. Spectral will be published April 10th/12 by Tribute books http://www.tribute-books.com/! Yay!  







Here's the blurb for the book: 

Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe—the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along. 

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.

You can add it to your Goodreads list here if you'd like. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13319632-spectral 

I'm also in the process of having a book trailer made and I can't wait to share that with you, too. Happy writing and reading everyone!
