Which is to say...I've got the cover for A Hero's Promise, my next free novella, and was told to tell all my readers it'll be up for pre-order soon! Releasing January 1, this one is about Jack Arnaud, the little boy in Whispers from the Shadows, and Julienne "Lenna" Lane, the daughter of our main characters in the same. They're the parents of the heroine in Circle of Spies, so it was fun to delve into their story before plunging into the Civil War.
Now, this one is set in 1835. And I don't know if you've ever searched for fashion from 1835, but it is t-o-u-g-h TOUGH to find any! So rather than give everyone involved a royal headache, this cover bypasses the heroine on the cover and goes straight for the images of import--I'm really loving it! They took an old black and white image of the Capitol from the correct time and somehow turned it into this beauty:
I don't have official back cover copy for it yet, but to give you an idea, anyway, I'll make something up. ;-)
Yeah, that's really rough, LOL. But you get the idea, I hope. And as soon as those links appear on Amazon, you can bet I'll pass them along!
Navy Lieutenant Jack Arnaud and Julienne “Lenna” Lane have already postponed their wedding three times. Will their secrets–incendiary satires, runaway slaves, and assassination attempts–foil their plans again? Or can they cling still to the promise they made as mere children, to be together forever?
