So… my erotic horror novella is getting expanded and re-released with Roane Publishing. I am beyond excited about the change, as I am looking to expand the story into a Paranormal Erotic series, and this is the first big step in that process. Since it is being re-released, it of course, gets a shiny new cover.
I really like this one, as I feel it more accurately reflects the story itself. What do you think? Love it? Hate it?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
Welcome back, everyone. Hope your summer is going wonderfully.
Today I have a special treat…the cover reveal for the BAD BOYS WANTED anthology from Roane Publishing. I’m doubly excited about this one because not only is the cover my design, but I also have a story featured in this tasty anthology. If that wasn’t enough to cheer about, I am also beyond thrilled to be sharing space in the release with some of my absolute favorite authors (and people).
Without too much ado, here are all the sweet details.

Welcome back to the blog and Happy Monday! Today I have a treat for you all — a visual delight, as it were. I’ve got a new cover to reveal to you. One I had the pleasure of getting to create. This one is for a contemporary western romance novella, MORGAN’S MOUNTAIN, the next installment in Krista Ames, Montana Series from Roane Publishing.
Really love how this one turned out…
Description: On the proverbial run from another failed relationship, Morgan finds herself in the one place she always found solace. With every intention of being alone, she’s surprised when she comes across the one person she never expected.
Luke would go to the ends of the earth to figure out why Morgan ran away five years ago and make things right with her. However, a dangerous trek up the mountains to her family’s cabin might not have been the smartest choice. To say she was happy to see him would be a huge lie. Having to rescue him, mortifying for Luke.
Toss a kidnapper into the mix and their feelings for each other are brought into perspective, revealing parts of themselves they never thought would come to light.
Welcome back, my friends. Today I have fenagled yet another rockin’ Inkspell cover reveal for you all today. This one is from Majanka Verstraete’s latest release, REFLECTED.
Let’s start by showing you the pretty, and then we can get to all the other juicy details on the novel.
About the Book
Title: Reflected (Mirrorland #2)
Author: Majanka Verstraete
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Mystery, Romance, Dark Fantasy
When Alison was stuck in Mirrorland, all she wanted was to be alive again. Now she’s gotten her revenge by inhabiting Piper’s body and trapping her behind the mirror. But pretending to be Piper is more difficult than she imagined it would be.
On top of that, the borders between Mirrorland and the real world are crumbling. Danger abounds, demons appear in high school, and if wasn’t for the help of a new mysterious guy, Alison might not have escaped. But there’s more to this guy than meets the eye, and she’s determined to find out what, especially since it might be related to her own supernatural problems.
Meanwhile, Piper tries to convince the Horseman of Death to help her return to her own world, but he’s got his own hidden agenda, which may cause more serious risks. Can Piper find a way to restore the balance before both worlds collide?
Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.
She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.
She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in.
Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.”

She doubts what’s in my heart.
What she doesn’t know…all I’m willing to sacrifice in order to ensure eternity for her.
On the brink of putting a face to our enemy, I may have screwed up myself even more. As it turns out, now I’m battling not only an alpha with an uncanny ability to hide where no one can find him, but my own inner demons as well. Physically challenged, my only chance is to rely on two things: my brother and my love for her.
In the end, will Marjorie comprehend the depth of my sacrifice? Or will her pride get in the way of understanding…and her life?

#CoverReveal: Love Elixir Antidote (The Adventures of Sonny the Scoundrel), by Sonny Zae @RoanePublishing
Another Cover Design of mine released today. What do you think?
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner… If you have been to a department store since Christmas, you know this, since all the pink and red candies and stuffed animals are already lining the shelves. And with the arrival of this auspicious holiday of lovers, Roane Publishing is putting out another of their wildly popular romance anthologies, ACCIDENTAL VALENTINE. The release day for this one is February 13, 2015, but I have the fabulous cover to share with you all today! Woot!
Most of you know I am a freak for a good cover, and I have to say, I REALLY do like this one. Of course, it is hard to not love a cover you designed yourself. Yup, this is another of my forays into the “art” world.
Would LOVE to know what you think about it. Does it grab you? What does it say to you? If you saw it on the shelf at the book or grocery store, would you pick it up and read the back? Inquiring minds want to know. Believe it or not, your feedback helps me tremendously. Knowing what appeals and doesn’t is a huge step toward making better covers each and every time.
But, enough about me… Let’s get to the cover and details, eh? First, the cover:
A Romance Anthology
By Various Authors
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Short Stories)
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: February 13, 2015
Description: Finding love on Valentine’s Day is the happiest of accidents.
Guiding Hearts by Claire Gillian
Is a lonely woman’s GPS sentient, or is her subconscious taking her by the hand to help heal a scarred heart?
When Jemma Ernst’s GPS malfunctions and sends her to the home of handsome and engaging Gabriel Nash, she writes it off as a fluke. But she can’t seem to reprogram him out of her thoughts, nor her GPS.
Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore
Single and cold on Valentine’s Day, Hailey Merritt is not looking forward to working all day at the coffee shop while everyone around her is cheery with romance and she’s stuck trying to figure out her next step in life.
But when a special bouquet arrives from a secret admirer, she decides to reserve judgment on the holiday and find whomever sent her the flowers.
Maybe Cupid has a plan to make this her favorite Valentine’s Day ever.
Dream Architect by S.L. Hughson
Taylor and Sons Custom Design keeps ASHLIN TAYLOR at arm’s length from her dream job. If only she were a son, she could follow her architectural dream. In the Taylor creed, girls get married and boys have careers. DYLAN CUTRIGHT focuses on finishing college and landing an architectural engineering job in a large firm. Minus emotional ties.
After an accidental encounter, their initial attraction is amplified when Dylan comes to work at her family’s firm. Unlike her family, Dylan encourages Ashlin to pursue her dream by enrolling in college. He even argues her case with Uncle Mike. His support confuses Ashlin because when she moves closer to him, he rebuffs her for reasons she can only speculate about.
Valentine’s Day might be the perfect opportunity for Ashlin to make him notice her. They are working together – alone – on the most romantic day of the year. Dylan builds her dreams of a career, but will he ever lower his walls and become more than just the man IN her dreams?
One Hot Angel by Jaylee Austin
Oblivious to Tiffany Jenkins, in three short weeks her life will end—unless she makes the perfect choice. Will she chose revenge and expose her ex-husband? Or chose love and surrender her heart to the only man who can save her?
Rock My Bones by Wendy Sparrow
Jared has been eyeing the sexy mural painter from inside the museum’s paleontology lab, but she’s way out of his league. He can’t let her paint that obviously misplaced fern, though…even if it means initiating contact.
You could call her a paleontology groupie, but Shay Meyers is interested in a more modern specimen. An adult male Homo Sapien to be exact—one who needs to be dragged out of his lab for a practical course in mating rituals. If she’s lucky, this will be the Valentine’s Day she rocks his bones.

Happy New Year, everyone.
Cover Reveal: Love’s Revenge by Terri Rochenski (@TerriRochenski) #HistoricalRomance #MeansofMercy #CoverLove
Happy Monday, boys and girls. Welcome. Hello. Pull up a beanbag chair or cop a squat. I’ve got a new cover to share with you! If you know me, you know how happy that prospect makes me. I just love covers. I know you aren’t supposed to judge, but, oh… do I judge. I would guess about 80% of my book purchased are influenced in some fashion by the cover. Truth. I freely admit it.
Well, this one I just ADORE. Really.
The cover I have today is for Terri Rochenski’s latest historical romance, LOVE’S REVENGE. If you read the first novel in the series, LOVE’s SORROW, then you’re anxiously awaiting the release of this one right along with me. I had such a book hangover when I finished SORROW … just a bit longer to know what happens next!!
Here’s the cover and the story blurb for LOVE’S REVENGE, Means of Mercy Book Two.
Description: Embittered by betrayal, Anne MacKay flees London for America, where she learns she’s pregnant with her abusive husband’s longed-for heir. In a society that doesn’t protect, or afford a well-to-do wife’s desire for divorce, Anne decides there is one way to exact revenge: deny the father any knowledge of his child.
Sought after by her husband’s henchmen, Anne travels by rail and horseback, far from civilization where silk and stays are worn, let alone thought of. Lies and deceit protect her identity for a time, allowing her to birth—and grow to love—the child who was supposed to be her vengeance.
With the help of her loyal and protective business partner, Jude Connagher, and the ranch hands in their Montana Territory valley, Anne attempts to rebuild her life under the shadow of her husband’s wrath.
One unwise decision lands Anne in her pursuers’ clutches, tearing her from the ranch, her child, and her growing love for the one man who could redeem her from bitterness. She’s left with no choice but to finally face her husband, knowing her freedom and life hang in the balance.

Add the second installment of the Means of Mercy series, LOVE’S REVENGE to your Goodreads TBR pile today!
About the Author:
Terri started writing stories in the eighth grade when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.
Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not potty training or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
Welcome back, everyone. Thanks for coming by.

Well, well, well… look what the cat drug in. Yup, me. Alive and well, working hard at the job, the family, and building a publishing company. I would add writing to the list, but I haven’t had much time for that of late. Hoping to do a little bit today, if I can manage to sit still long enough.
I want to apologize for letting the blog posts fall off into the abyss. I would swear to not let it happen again, but, well, I don’t like making promises I’m pretty sure I won’t keep… Blunt, Becca. That’s me. But, as I was recently reminded, you wouldn’t have me any other way.
For my gracious return to blog-dom, I have a treat — one of my favorite types of blog posts — a cover reveal. You all know how much I love covers, most especially ones I happen to have created myself. And, being the attention whore I am, I’d love to know what you all think of it. Drop your thoughts in the comments area at the bottom of the post.
Genre: Paranormal (Romance)
By Echo Shea
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: November 26, 2014
Keywords: Paranormal Romance, Fairy Tale, Beauty and the Beast, Short Story
Blurb: If you’ve ever been caught in a riptide, pulled down into the water, then you know me. Or, more accurately, what I’m like when I’m angry.
Delia was beautiful, smart, and kind. He wasn’t. He said he loved her, but he didn’t know what love was. He was manipulative and cruel—more than a thief. A beast.
All she wanted was a rose…
These are the words on my sister’s grave. Her sadness, her obsession, forever a reminder I didn’t—couldn’t save her.
I’m not vindictive or cruel. I’m simply as the river:. My memory is winding and my reach is long. I watched him steal her beauty, her essence. Watched him become a beast. He thought he’d get away with it, thought he’d go free.
I lay a rose upon my sister’s grave.
Light a candle for the beast.
