My kids have a loooonnnngg spring break coming up next week. I expect the otherwise quiet house to be filled with excitement and laughter, but work time to be at a minimum. What that means for me, is that what's left of this week must be epic. Knowing this, I've been updating back matter and designing new covers for both Sawtooth Peaks and Riverwood. The Sawtooth Peaks and Riverwood covers are live on Amazon. You can check them all out here on my bookshelf.
Speaking of new graphics, I also popped on a new background for the website. What do you think? Since I'm moving away from the swirly covers, I figured the rocks and waterfalls had more of the feel I was looking for. And if you haven't noticed, I'm consistently drawn to tranquil shades of blue and green.
Even the cover I'm working on for Mason's book has a bit of a teal hue to the background. But before I can have a cover reveal, I need a title. I've been on the fence about what to call it. I've considered everything from Confessions of a Mailorder Bribe to my husband's favorite: Polar Sexpress (Okay, I didn't seriously consider this one, but it made me laugh so I wanted to share). The brothers series will be full of misunderstandings bringing unlikely couples together. Mason Blake is an antisocial polar bear shifter, and prefers to spend his time between jobs for the Tribunal alone. So alone, that he lives in a cold, harsh environment, as far from other people as he can possibly get. And I have to admit, there's something to be said about unwinding in a quiet space.
Lyn is nothing like Mason on the surface--small to his massive size, cat to his bear. She's a bride delivered in a wooden crate to his doorstep, when all he ordered was steak. She's trouble he doesn't want, but sometimes fate doesn't care what anyone wants. She gives us what we need.
I'm only on the first draft, but am having fun telling the story of these two. And with that, I'm off to write. Until next time!
