Special Guest Post - Cover Reveal and Giveaway!



We all know how I love a good book cover. And in planning a cover reveal for my next book, I came across another author doing the same, so we decided to swap reveals. ;-) I know Amber Stokes through her reviewing, and it's so much fun to be able to return the favor she's paid me before and is paying me now and tell you a bit about her book! I know you'll love the cover (so pretty!) and there's also a giveaway attached, so scroll down to the Rafflecopter!

Now here it is! The really adorable cover for Where Trains Collide!



I love the lighting here, the train tracks going off into the distance, the heart dotting the i...all in all, a strong, compelling cover that gets a thumbs-up from me! Now to tell you a bit about the book. =)

New Adult Contemporary Romance Novella


Two hearts racing in different directions will meet where trains collide.

Burned out and disillusioned with her chosen career path, Trisha Knolane gives in to impulse and hops on a train bound for Oregon, eager to escape the stress of college for a few days. But what begins as a fun little adventure suddenly collapses into a nightmare when she discovers that her ex-boyfriend is also on board.

All her hopes and dreams had once centered on Paul Benson. Now, when Trisha doesn't know where her current track will lead, Paul’s questions only complicate matters and spark a few of her own.

Questions that could change the course of her life.

A heartfelt and thought-provoking contemporary romance novella, Where Trains Collide faces the uncertain season of new adulthood head-on and shows that sometimes a path of broken dreams can lead to life's best destination.

Coming April 2015

    1. Isn't it lovely? And yes, so much fun! I'm glad to the New Adult genre growing--I always loved stories with younger characters, but there so very rarely were any in contemporary fiction until recently!

      P.S. Roseanna, I'm with you - it's awesome to see the New Adult genre expanding! It's neat that we actually have an official category now for that stage in-between YA and adult. :)

  5. I love the railroad shooting of into the distance - very fitting with the title, and a lovely background besides. It also makes a gorgeous advertisement/pin/image (whatever you call it, at the top of the post).
