Cover Reveal Thirteen Years in the Making

It's finally here. I know some people have been very curious, and rightfully so. The manuscript was lost for thirteen years. The cover was a concept for at least that long. It was work to get the shot just right, but it turned out just as I'd dreamed it would for thirteen years, and I'm happy to finally get to share it with you.

I'd like to say a few thanks. First, to Mark Halliman, one half of a great photography crew. Nice job, very nice. It wasn't easy to get that shot, but you did it, and I'm grateful. And to the other half of that team who's also a pretty good cover artist: Thanks, Mrs. H!

Next, to Carrie Jones, a fabulous artist who drew, by hand, the tattoo art. You may not be able to see it well in this pic, but it's throughout the book. And it may very well be in that exact spot on my arm in a few weeks or months.

And last but not least, the cover model - ME! Yep, that's me on the cover in my corset and skirt. Even though it doesn't look it, the pose was challenging to maintain because of the way I was turned and leaning back. Good thing Mr. Photographer had a quick finger!

The Celtic Fan - available next Friday, Valentine's Day, in any electronic format you could possibly want and in print! Grab it, enjoy it, and tell your friends.

This was so much fun!

This is an interview I've got on The Romance Reviews. It was so much fun to do! I hope you'll take time to go over and read it, then come back here or to my website and tell me what you think.

And remember . . . it's less than a week until the cover reveal for The Celtic Fan, although if you keep your eyes open, you just might see it before then. If you spot it, send me a message and tell me where. It's out there, I promise - you just have to look for it!

Here's hoping that damn rodent doesn't see his shadow tomorrow. And if he does . . . well, let's just say I'm looking for a recipe for groundhog stew!
