Hello fair readers!
Happy May and I hope all is well with you. Despite all of the change going on in my life right now, I’m still trucking along. Once things get settled, I should be back to a more regular writing schedule and hopefully I can finish up my other work in progress, Withered World.
Today I am excited to share my cover design for The Green Lady! I am very excited about this cover. If you’re curious, I used Kit Foster Designs. Kit is a great designer and I highly recommend him if you’re in the market for a cover designer. He sells pre-made covers and also does custom design work. I had him design something special for my novel. He will also do the e-book and print formatting for me.
I am just waiting on my last round of edits and then I can send the manuscript off to Kit to be formatted. I’m hoping for an end of June/beginning of July release date! Keep an eye out. I’ll update you on my progress and will let you know when the book is available for pre-order! I can’t wait to see a completed book! Seeing my name in print will be a dream come true.
Back cover copy:
Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder…
They had warned him. Absinthe did not come with a disclaimer, a caution to be inferred between the lines and the delicate wings of the La Fee Verte, the Green Fairy, who gives absolution but wants your soul in return.
From the first sip of seduction, the first saccharine slide down into gritty sweetness, there was no hope of release, no expectation of escape. Blind and willing, he went forth…
Estate lawyer John Remington Edgar once lived a cautious life; a life plagued by disappointment until a chance encounter with Joseph Lewis, Sr. leaves him managing the estate of the wealthiest and most influential man in town.
Suddenly, all of Baltimore is at his fingertips and he finds himself with an exclusive membership to the illustrious Harbor Club. There John discovers his first love, the green fairy, deep in the dregs of absinthe, the drink with the ethereal glow that blinds him to the dangers of a courtship with blemished socialite Eleanor Westfall, a woman spurned by society and hell-bent on revenge against the son of John’s best client.
After witnessing the murder of his most important client’s son, John becomes the prime suspect. He takes matters into his own hands to preserve his good name, prove his innocence and unravel the mystery.
