New Cover!

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the US and I have a lot to be grateful for this year. My family and I are relatively healthy (outside the usual aches and pains), and we are happy in spite of a lot of changes and challenges we've faced in the past twelve months.

I'm also thankful for my network of supportive friends (though they seem to be in rather short supply lately). But most of all, I'm grateful for my readers!

Earlier this year, I made the decision to bring my work directly to my readers through self-publishing electronically. My first self-published work went up on Oct. 7th -- a 14,000 word novelette, The Sidhe Princess. My next release will be a full length romantic suspense novel set on a cruise ship and titled High Seas Deception. I hope to have the editing and formatting complete before Christmas, but right now, I'm excited to share the fantastic cover with all of you. And here's a brief teaser about the story:

In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a mysterious Irishman steals a passenger’s identification and slips aboard Adventure Cruise Lines’ Intrepid. His mission is to intercept a dangerous package before it can be delivered to Los Angeles. However, he is discovered by ACL’s junior security officer Skylar Davidson, formerly with LAPD. Is he “one of the good guys” as he claims? Or the ruthless mercenary Skylar remembers from a bloody shoot-out at LAX airport? With the lives of over two thousand passengers and crew at stake, can Skylar trust her instincts? What about her heart?

What about you? Please share some of the things you are most thankful for this holiday season.

Will there be secret (and lascivious) message hidden in the towels folded to look like fish? Perhaps a clue in the elaborate ice sculture? Or a romantic rendezvous beneath starry skies? Can't wait to read it!

Looks like a lovely cover! Can't wait...and I love books set on cruise ships...

What am I thankful for this year? The many friends I've made the last few years and how much they support me.

Even though we Canadians have our Thanksgiving in October, your thanksgiving is another time to count my blessings of all the things I am thanksful for. Those would be my wonderful family and friends.

I am looking forward to downloading your books. I am thankful for my new kindle I won on an author blog...

May your table always be bountiful and your blessings many..

LOL Jen,

I'll have to remember that about the folded towels! Perfect place for a secret message. Ice sculpture, not so much -- can you say SOGGY? And there will be plenty of romantic moments beneath starry skies. ;-)

Hi Mo,
I hope you love THIS book. ;-)

It's GREAT when our friends support us. And pretty dang depressing when they don't. :-P


Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Glad you love the cover, Helen!

Kim Van Meter really outdid herself on this one, and that is saying something after the GREAT job she did on Sidhe Princess. ;-)

The internet really has made the world a global community, hasn't it? I LOVE the fact that I can communicate with people so far away and still feel like they are close at hand.
