Guys! Guys! Guys!

I’ve been waiting 10 months to make this announcement. My second novel, Cause to Repine is coming out next month and I can finally reveal the cover!

Here It Is

Is it not perfect! I’m so amazingly pleased with how it turned out. I worked with an amazing cover illustrator, Louisa Cannell, who has done a lot a great work with indie and self-published book authors (learn more about her below). Covers are something so personal to each author and we all have our own ideas about what makes a great cover that it’s hard to really find someone to help make your dream into a reality. Louisa was absolutely on board from the very start and it took her no time to hone in on what I was craving.

So What’s Next?

The e-Book ARC copies will be ready SOON! So, if you aren’t already on my mailing list and want to get your download as soon as possible, click the button below and sign up for the electronic ARC.

The moment that the downloads are ready, I’ll make sure to send out an email to everyone who signed up for the ARC, so don’t wait! Make sure you’re on the early bird list 🙂

Thank you to everyone in this amazing community for all the support in the past 18 months. I started this journey with absolutely no idea what I was doing. My first novel has sold over 2500 copies and continues to do well in the Jane Austen Pastiche and Adaptations genre on all major platforms. That is really down to this community of writers and readers. I don’t think I could have imagined in March 2021, when I decided to try and publish my first book, that the response would be quite this amazing.

Now that the second book is in the bag, it’s time to get back to writing book #3 (and #4 and #5 and #6 …) !

I’d love to connect in all the usual places!

Meet the Cover Artist

Louisa Cannell

Louisa is an artist based in Los Angeles and represented by SNYDER in North America and the UK. Her work focuses on inclusive and feminist portraiture. I found her amazing work through Instagram and had the best time working with her! The process was so much fun and the end result was more than I could have ever hoped for! Check out her work on Instagram or at her website.
