I’m excited to say I’ll be independently publishing my upcoming novel, TOLD YOU SO. I’m blessed to work the past seventeen years with top-notch publishers, but this seems the right avenue for this time and this series–yes, I’m now writing TOLD YOU TWICE. Being able to do these stories this way is exhilarating. But I’d like your input.
Here’s a peek at the first of the TOLD YOU Series:
Grace Evangeline knows her newest romance novel should be playing live on Broadway and will stop at nothing to convince playwright-producer Devin Bressard. Yes, it might involve a little stalking and infiltrating the people in his life to prove her plots are not contrived, her characters not cartoons. People all over the world love her novels–and her. So why should this man matter?
Devin Bressard likes his full and meaningful life. As “a voice for the times,” his productions strike nerves and win awards. Grace Evangeline’s request is laughable—until he starts glimpsing her in his East Village neighborhood. Forced to work together, he learns she’s trouble in more ways than one—a calamity vortex. Who could know the spokesperson for strength and virtue would ignite his carefully contained heart in a conflagration that touches more lives than their own?
That’s the bare bones gist of it. Now it’s time for book covers. For this romantic comedy series set in NYC, what might appeal to you?
A. artistic, i.e. watercolor wash, zany illustration, or other cool treatments
B. sharply photographic
C. feature faces
D. closeups of clothing, hands, etc. without faces
E. incorporate setting in a composite
F. Simple / plain with text
Feel free to vote or offer any thoughts you have about covers. I value your feedback!
