Cover Reveal for Caitie Quinn’s WORTH THE FALL

I’m so excited to share the beautiful cover of my friend Caitie Quinn’s latest release WORTH THE FALL. It’s second book in her Brew Ha Ha contemporary romance series, and releases this Fall!

Here’s the story:

Kasey Lane is having a bad week.

Understatement.

Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men.

But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone…or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.

And without further delay… here’s the cover, designed by Okay Creations!!!

Isn’t it adorable?

You can add WORTH THE FALL on
Caitie is fun and funny and one of the sweetest people I know. Here’s a little more about her:

Caitie Quinn is the Rom Com Writin’ name of YA Golden Heart writer, Bria Quinlan.

Caitie writes stuff. Stuff that’s funny — hopefully.

She’s a lover of the Romantic Comedy and manages to always bring light-hearted romance and shenanigans to her stories. They may be set in a city that looks remarkably like Boston. But don’t quote her on that.

If it’s not funny, you can totally blame the weather, or her lack of chocolate, or the formatting, or her cat. Wait, she doesn’t have a cat. Scratch that last one.

Check her out on twitter @CaitieQuinn or at www.caitiequinn.com.

STILL ME Cover Reveal!!!

I have the cover design for STILL ME- A 20 Something novel, and I have to say, Miss Kenley’s a little hottie on her cover! :) Thanks to my talented designer Gabrielle Prendergast of Cover Your Dreams for creating this beautiful look. This is Book 3 of the 20 Something series and will be released on October 10, but it’s already up for pre-order on Amazon. Check out the cover, then I’ll tell you a bit about the story.

STILL ME FINAL

I loved writing Kenley’s story. We meet her in Book 1, CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING, just before she gets engaged and moves back home to Atlanta to satisfy her fiancé’s ultimatum. In book 2, STILL YOURS, both Heidi and Mara suspect something’s not quite right in paradise for Kenley and Mark. Now, we find out what’s really been going on. Here’s the “official” story blurb:

23 year old Kenley Moran is going through a mid-life crisis… WAY early. Pushed since childhood by a nightmare stage-mom to use her looks to “land a rich man”, she’s reeling from a broken engagement and regretting the day she gave up her career in TV news for a guy.

Now Kenley’s determined to change her life, shunning makeup and fashion and fighting her way back into the highly competitive career she loves, off-camera this time. When she lands a producing job at Worldwide News Network in Atlanta, she plans to keep her head down, work hard, and prove she’s not just another pretty face. And vows NO ONE is EVER going to make her compromise herself again.

WNN anchor Larson Overstreet has it all—old money, good looks, a prestigious job, and more women than he can count throwing themselves at him. Problem is… none of it is real. He’s known his whole life that people are only interested in him for his fortune and his famous family name, in that order. Except for Kenley. The shy news producer isn’t interested in him at all.

Working closely with the anchor of her new show, Kenley’s dismayed to feel an instant spark. Larson’s everything she doesn’t want. He’s too good looking, too charming, and worst of all, too rich. She’s not looking for another big money honey. In fact, she’d prefer a nice little guy from the mailroom, maybe a guy who lives at home like she’s been forced to do.

But when they must travel together for a special report, Kenley realizes Larson’s not the spoiled pretty rich boy she pegged him as, and she’s not as immune to him as she’s pretended to be.

Now, even at the network level, what happens behind the scenes is the real story.

I can’t wait for October to get this story out into the world!!! But first, Mara’s story, STILL YOURS, has a book birthday coming up SOON! September 10th. I’ll leave you with one last look at Kenley’s cover. Let me know what you think. ;)

STILL ME FINAL

Cover Reveal — STILL YOURS: A 20 SOMETHING NOVEL

I’m thrilled to be able to share with you the cover for Book 2 of the 20 SOMETHING series, STIILL YOURS. This is Mara’s story, and is a standalone novel, but of course contains some scenes with Heidi and Kenley and is more fun when read as a part of the series as a whole.

Here’s a bit about it:

23-year-old Mara Neely knows who she is and what she wants—she’s an ambitious reporter with a taste for himbos— beautiful dumb guys who don’t even tempt her to get involved past wham-bam-thank you-sir. When she takes a TV news reporting job in Providence, it’s a great step up career wise, but it’s also a little too close to home … and to him, the only guy who’s ever tempted her to let go and love someone.

To billionaire web entrepreneur Reid Mancini, Mara was like a rare comet– beautiful, exciting, and impossible to hold onto. Now his first love is on his television screen and back in his life, and this time, he’s got a surefire plan to catch a star and make her fall.

What do you think? Second chance love stories might be my very favorite! And now…. the cover….

STILL YOURS FINAL COVERI personally love the scene of Providence with its river bridge in the background. And she just “looks” like Mara to me, right down to the tiny gap between her teeth! Kudos to my cover designer Gabrielle Prendergast of Cover Your Dreams!

If you’ve read CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING, you’ve already met Mara, but don’t think you actually *know* her until you’ve read this book. She’s got some surprises up her sleeve! And wait until you meet Reid. Mmmm. I LOVE this guy. STILL YOURS will officially release on Sept. 10, but it will be available for pre-order within days at Amazon and KOBO. Before I go, I’ll give you one more look at the lovely cover, this time close-up and in detail!

STILL YOURS FINAL COVER

AE Jones MINDSWEEPER Cover Reveal!!

 

I’m so excited to bring you this today. AE Jones and I met as members of the 2013 Golden Heart finalists, and she ended up taking home the Golden Heart in the Paranormal category. Now… we’re both moving into the “published” part of our writing careers, and AE’s debut novel MINDSWEEPER comes out September 15th. I’m going to tell you more about this amazing book and its charming author, but first…. TA DA!!!

Cover_ Mind Sweeper by AE Jones

Isn’t it cool? Read on to find out more…

An angel, a demon and a vampire walk into a bar. Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it’s just another day in the life of Kyle McKinley.

Kyle was born with the ability to erase memories, and the inability to keep her opinions to herself. She and her teammates – a vampire who looks like a sexy pirate with fangs, and a Shamat demon with a penchant for Italian pastries – provide supernatural damage control when humans see too much. Today’s problem? A sword-wielding angel and a demon had a supernatural smackdown during happy hour in a Cleveland bar, leaving behind a headless vampire and a dozen human witnesses.

This latest supernatural slip-up is attracting all kinds of attention. So much attention that the police step in, and Kyle has to deal with Joe Dalton, a know-it-all human with the sexiest turquoise eyes she has ever seen. Kyle has no room in her life for yet another human who will treat her like a freak. However, Dalton definitely makes her naughty parts sit up and take notice, and it’s more than mutual. But before they can act on their attraction, they must join forces to solve a dangerous puzzle. And when they uncover the truth, the apocalyptic ripple effect forces Kyle to make a choice. Learn to trust again, or risk losing everyone she cares about, including Dalton.

Doesn’t that sound fun???

About A. E. Jones AE Jones pic

Growing up a TV junkie, award winning author AE Jones oftentimes rewrote endings of episodes in her head when she didn’t like the outcome. She immersed herself in sci-fi and soap operas. But when Buffy hit the little screen she knew her true love was paranormal. Now she spends her nights weaving stories about all variation of supernatural—their angst and their humor. After all life is about both…whether you sport fangs or not.

AE lives in Ohio with her eclectic family and friends who in no way resembles any characters in her books. Honest. Now her two cats are another story altogether.

CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING- in print!

I’m so excited, I just have to share. I got my proof of CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING’s paperback version this weekend. I’m supposed to check through it to make sure there are no blank pages, weird formatting, or lingering typos, but I can’t stop hugging it.

A little bit excited...

A little bit excited…

 

Y’all, it’s in PRINT. This is getting realz…

I took a book selfie just to prove it to myself.

Actually, I did stop hugging it long enough to check through it. The formatting is beautiful, the cover is even beautifuller, and that means when Release Day (that’s a national holiday, right?)  gets here August 12th, everything will be ready to go!

I’ve already read some amazing reviews on ARCs (advanced review copies) that have gone out, and I’ll be able to share some of those with you soon, too.

It all just makes me more excited about writing the next book in the 20 SOMETHING series. *dashes off to write, wearing a goofy perma-grin*

 

COVER REVEAL!!!

Today’s the day!!

I’ve been waiting for weeks, and it’s been killing me, but today I can finally reveal the cover for my first published novel CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING, to be released August 12.

The 20 SOMETHING series follows a group of friends just out of college as they embark on new careers in the exciting world of TV news… where what happens behind the scenes is the real story!

Here’s a little about Book 1– CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING:

22-year-old Heidi Haynes is almost one year into her “real life”. She has her first reporting job, her first apartment, and a comfortable relationship with her college sweetheart. But for some reason she’s not as eager to talk about walking down the aisle as he is.

Heidi secretly longs for big cities, big-market breaking news, and real independence from her way-too-close-by helicopter parents. Problem is, the last time she left the security of home for new places and new people, things didn’t go so well. Disastrously, in fact, and she came running back to a local college and a “safe” boyfriend.

Aric Serrano is definitely not safe.

He’s six-feet-four-inches of missing-Hemsworth-brother-hotness and plans to stay in small-market-Southern-Hell just long enough to grab a cup of coffee and put together a kick-ass “escape tape”. He’ll serve his one-year contract, then he’s taking off for a higher rung on the TV sports ladder—alone—the way he likes it. Then he meets his new co-anchor.

Heidi would be so much more comfortable if she could simply ignore Aric—he’s just her type—the type she’s so careful to avoid these days. But that becomes impossible when she’s forced to work closely with him on the weekend news. Now the attraction between them is growing even faster than the ratings, and what happens behind the scenes is the real news.

My beautiful cover was designed by Gabrielle Prendergast at Cover Your Dreams. And now without further ado…

CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING COVER- FINAL

What do you think?? I love the colors. I love the news mic. I love her lips. Seriously– wouldn’t you kill for those lips? :)

And guess what? I’ve seen the covers for Books 2 and 3 and They. Are. Fabulous. But first things first– getting this beautiful baby out into the world. Come on August!!
