I'm so happy to unveil some new cover art! Before the Dawn releases in just a few days! I love this cover. The colors are so beautiful, and the mountains are perfect!
From the back cover:
There’s nothing left.
His career, his upcoming marriage, his family, his life. When God deserted him in the depths of a collapsing mine shaft, David Mackenzie lost everything. Even his sight. Oh, but not his life. No, God didn’t take that. Determined not to rely on anyone else to get along, David wraps himself tightly in folds of bitterness as dark as his new world.
But Karen will not give up. Through a series of, well, maneuvers, Karen manages to convince David to marry her anyway. She quickly discovers, however, that though she loves him unconditionally, she shouldn’t have stepped ahead of God—who also never gives up.
God’s love is a light that can break through any darkness, but Karen and David must turn toward the light in order to experience it. As they learn the truth behind the accident and face a darkness neither expected, will they make the right choice?
And a little excerpt
“This will be a marriage in name only. I have no intention of consummating our union. When the time comes that you realize your mistake in marrying me, you can apply for an annulment.”
The air rushed out of her lungs and her head spun. An annulment? “When are you going to understand that I have no intention of leaving you? Did you not hear me today? I promised to love, honor, and obey you until death parted us.”
“I heard your promise. Now obey me and take your things to the next room. I’m tired, and I’d like to go to bed. It’s been a long day.” He stepped farther into the room and waited.
Numb at this turn of events, Karen gathered her valise and straightened. “David, can’t we talk about this?”
“This is not a matter for discussion. Go to bed.”
She gathered the lamp and stepped into the hall. He closed the door behind her, shutting her out as effectively as putting out a cat for the night. The final humiliation came when he turned the key in the lock.
And more new cover art!
I'm ridiculously excited to write the stories of Evelyn and Gareth, Jane and Harrison, Gwendolyn and Matthew, and Emeline and Joseph.
And I love that I have cover art to work with. It's so much easier to write my characters when I have a picture to work from. I'll cast one of the heroines as this lovely girl on the cover, and match one of the heroes to the cowboy.
I love a cover with people on it, and not chin-only people or headless people, though that is a very popular trend in CBA cover art at the moment.
How about you? Do you like people on the cover, and do they need to have complete faces?
