Getting a Makeover

Hey Kittens –

I have excitement. Lots of it. Today, after six months of waiting, I can finally share CRUSHED’s new cover! I love it so hard. The boy and the blurred, foggy background are just perfect.

This book, more than any other, is the book of my heart. I spent two years working on it, trying to get inside the brain of a seventeen-year-old boy. The final version is completely different than what I started with because I rewrote it several times. And I’m happy I did, because Fletch is my favorite character out of all of them.

Okay. Enough with the rambling. Here’s the cover. The photograph was done by Slevin Aaron and the cover design by RBA Designs. Let me know what you think.

Cover Reveal: CRUSHED

I love cover reveals – I just hate my own. They make me a nervous wreck because I worry no one else will love them the way I do. Thankfully, I had Rachel Marks as a cover designer and she did an amazing job of capturing the feel of the book.

If you haven’t heard of CRUSHED, here’s the blurb:

For seventeen-year-old serial womanizer Fletch Colson, life is a game and if he plays by the rules, he’ll win it all: his dream college, his parents’ money, and a hot (if a little vapid) girl on his arm. Really, it couldn’t be easier. All he has to do is get good grades, live a privileged boarding school life, and try not to mess up too much.

However, when he accepts the seemingly impossible bet to change his ways and be “just friends” with smart, beautiful, tempting Ellie Jacobs – a girl who seems hell-bent on confusing him – Fletch’s whole world is turned upside down.

Suddenly, what seemed simple and clear, no longer feels right and Fletch must decide if winning it all is worth losing a piece of himself

AND HERE’S COVER!!!!
