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.
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.
