Every once in awhile something really fun takes place… like, seeing a Facebook post by a friend of mine that says, “I signed a book contract!”
Rachelle Rae and I have written for the same publication for some time, so when her news hit I scurried off (can you do that online?) to send her an email begging for information about this upcoming book. It turns out she signed a contract for a 3 book historical fiction series with WhiteFire press.
Since I love reading historical fiction and I especially love reading books by authors I know, I was pretty excited! And when Rachelle asked if I would be willing to be part of a “Cover Reveal” on my blog, of course I said yes.
For writers, there is something incredibly wonderful about seeing the cover of your book. It makes the whole experience more real. And as readers, I think we can all agree that there is some part of us that always will judge a little bit of a book by its cover.
But first, before we see the cover, here’s a little bit of background:
Synopsis: In Reformation-era England, a converted rogue wants to restore his honor—at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk Godfrey knows he has only one chance at redemption.
An independent Catholic maiden seeking refuge in the Low Countries finds herself at the center of the Iconoclastic Fury. Jaded by tragedy, Gwyneth’s only hope of getting home is to trust the man she hates, and she soon discovers her poor vision is not the only thing that has been blinding her.
But the home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, will the saint and the sinner hold to hope…or be overcome? When Dirk’s plan fails, could all be lost?
And now, of course, the lovely cover itself.
Bio: Rachelle Rea plots her novels while driving around the little town she’s lived in all her life in her dream car, a pick-up truck.
