I’m pleased to announce that A Rose Beneath the Snow has been released for Kindle at Amazon! Follow the link to see the book at Amazon. A Rose in Summer and Hawk’s Autumn Rose are next up! A huge thank you to all my fans and readers who have been so supportive and encouraging while I get all this done.
Well, It’s done! Can I do a happy dance? Stand on the roof and shout it to all my neighbors? The three books, A Rose Beneath the Snow, A Rose in Summer, and Hawk’s Autumn Rose have been uploaded to Smashwords. While they’re not available anywhere else yet (pending review for the premium catalog), I’m happy to say this long journey is about over. Amazon for Kindle users is next and after that I’ll offer a print edition for those who just have to have the real deal in their hands. I’m the same way. I love the feel of a printed book.
With the professional editing of A Rose Beneath the Snow and A Rose in Summer nearing completion, it’s time to unveil the new covers! Ta -Dah! What do you think?
All the credit for these gorgeous covers goes to EDHGraphics. Erin Dameron-Hill took my scrap of thoughts and designed the covers using photos from the Romance Novel Covers (RNC) website. She captured perfectly the theme and mood for both novels. Aren’t they delicious? She also did the cover for Forsaken and will be designing the next two books in the series.
I wanted to release the novels for Kindle on Amazon.com and had received numerous requests for a paperback release. I decided that before I did that I needed to review the manuscripts and make sure there were no errors. Oh, was I in for a shock! Did I find mistakes in the manuscript that I had missed? Yes. And I kept finding them after six weeks. Frustrated, I finally cried uncle and contacted Jenny Quinlan at Historical Editorial. She’s wonderful to work with and kept me from having a nervous breakdown. She also made me think about scenes and why things unfolded the way they did. In several instances, I had to dig deep and do a complete rewrite which made for a better story, although the bones of each story remains the same. The changes are most obvious in the first half of A Rose Beneath the Snow and the second half of A Rose in Summer. Am I glad I did it? Yes. Was it worth the effort? Definitely!
As soon as I have a confirmed date for uploading the revised books, I’ll post it here. For now, I just wanted to unveil the new covers. Stay tuned for more updates!
