A book cover!! I have a book cover!! Yay!!

My debut book, Devin's Second Chance, will be published in June - YAY! - and, today I'm sharing my very first book cover! 



Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 84,000 words
Publication Date: June 2013 (Coming soon!)
Series: A Morning Lake Novel: Book 1


Cowboy Devin Trent’s life has been stuck for years, unchanged since his faithless wife died, and he is determined to keep it that way - an ever-present reminder of why he doesn’t deserve a second chance at love. Claire Best, by contrast, is in turmoil – she is renting her house to summer folk, she is planning a big fundraiser, and her doctor has discovered something that needs to be investigated.

Pulled together by the fundraiser, Claire’s teenage renter, and Devin’s matchmaking mom, their immediate attraction quickly escalates to more, but Claire fears her own health worries will only resurrect Devin’s pain and grief over his wife’s final days and she is willing to sacrifice her own happiness to protect him.

Can they overcome their pasts and listen to their hearts before their happily-ever-after slips away?

This was a long time coming!  And, I can't fully explain how excited I am to share this news with you!  Have you ever felt that way?

Ooh, it's lovely! The soft wash of blues are so romantic and breezy. Very cool with the boots and the kisss offset by the book's title. And I love "Morning Lake Novel." Great to know there will be more coming in the series.

Congrats, Lorraine. I'm excited for you! I look forward to reading this and also showcasing on my blog. Woot!!!

I love it! I'm looking forward to reading this -- I think you had some Six Sentence Sunday snippets of this one. Congrats on the release -- this is so exciting!

Aw, thanks, Mae! I'm pretty excited about how this is coming together and excited to share this on your blog too!

It was fun choosing the images, but the cover went through so many iterations I thought for a while that nothing would click. Then I found the cowboy boots! LOL.

Thanks, Donna! I may have had a few SSS posts on this story... certainly a lot from the next one in the series (Annie's Christmas Dream).

I'm pretty excited about doing this! (Can you tell? I think I've used the word 'excited' a bazillion times on this page!) LOL

very nice cover and enticing blurb! I love that you've got it in a series.

Thank you, Suzanne! I wasn't sure that the series was going to work, but then, suddenly, it all came together! (I think - LOL). I have people reading the second book, so I guess I'll find out soon if they agree with me... :)

Congratulations Lorraine, what wonderful news! Will it be available on Amazon or with a publisher?

patonlorraine said...

Thank you, Darlene! "Devin's Second Chance" should be available digitally through Amazon, Kobo, iTunes and Smashwords by June 17th (my scheduled release date). And, a few weeks later, it will also be available as a hard copy through Amazon (and I'm planning to have copies to sign / sell at the When Words Collide conference). :)
