The Trilogy gets a makeover!

I’m very excited to reveal brand new covers for the Sunflower Trilogy- Turn Towards the Sun. Each cover was designed by Bookfabulous Designs with custom photography by Brad Olson photography. The books capture the romantic and sexy feel of the storyline and I couldn’t be happier with the final effect. Check them out below along with a fan made trailer created by Beth MacMullin. Stop by my Facebook page for a giveaway opportunity.

My vision for Enzo Milano…

It took a long time and many Google searches, chats with readers on my Facebook page, and soul searching. Putting a face to the breathtaking Mr. Milano is not as easy as it seemed. A reader suggested this gentleman and I must say I was smitten. He is perfectly Italian, with lovely eyes, delicious lips, and just the right balance of edgy intensity and smouldering tenderness. He is Antonio Cupo.

Book Two Progress

Book two  is currently in the hands of test readers and after that, will be off to the editor. I really thought Turn Towards the Sun would be the only book, but once I started writing it, I realized it should be two. About three-fourths of the way through writing book two, I again realized it should be three. So, that’s where we stand now. It will be a trilogy.

My estimated release for book two is early 2013. Once it’s available, I will begin writing book three and plan for a summer release for that.

I’m still in the process of selecting a name for the next two books and will post that as soon as I know what it is.

I’m working on some guest blog posts and interviews so keeping very busy. Stay tuned here for updates about the release of book two.

As always, thanks for reading.

Naming your baby

Book one’s name came very easy to me. The theme of sunflowers and the Italian translation of the word made it a no-brainer for me. But alas, now I must name book two, and potentially book three. And a series name. Oh my. Well, I just keep writing and hope the name jumps out as it did with the first book.

I imagine naming your book is as fun and challenging as picking the right name for your child. It sets the tone, not only for the book, but the genre. It should evoke a feeling to the reader, a promise of things to come. And the book will have that name forever. That’s a lot of pressure.

In the meantime, I keep writing.
