Hello friends! I’m so excited that this day has finally come. My friend and editor, Amber Stokes is getting ready to have her debut book published, and today is the cover reveal. If I may say so myself, this cover is splendid! It is soft and beautiful and at the same time the choice of colors and the work of art reveal the story and the emotions that it promises to trigger. Reading the back cover copy, I’m sure you’ll understand and agree with me.
This beautiful cover was designed by the very talented Lena Goldfinch. I’ve seen some of her work and they are really good. But this one just blew me away! It is so beautiful, as also, the story promises to be.
This lovely book is set to be released August, 2013. So be sure to put it on your want-to-read lists! You can do that on Goodreads as it has already been listed there.
Please, by all means, have fun with this cover as I am and spread the word about this wonderful book!

About the Book
Five bleeding hearts. One profound journey.
Sally Clay’s livelihood has been snatched away, but in its place arises an opportunity to escape from her sordid past and an unrelenting, unwanted suitor. Boarding a train with a heartsick rancher and an enigmatic miner, she leaves Virginia City behind and heads to Northern California, waiting for the chance to make right what went wrong three long years before.
But the road to revenge is far from smooth. Sally soon learns that the jagged pieces of a broken heart can far too easily wound the hearts of others – and hers isn’t the only heart that’s broken. Tragedy and fear dog her steps as she flees from the redwood forests to the high desert and back again. Will her bleeding heart ever find a way and a place to heal?
A desperate soiled dove. Three men who come to care for her. One man determined to claim her.
All on a journey that will show them what true love really involves.

Teaser from Bleeding Heart
Breaking hearts should be considered a crime. That would make Elizabeth Lawson an outlaw and Joe Clifton the victim. And that wasn’t a far stretch in Joe’s mind. She had rounded up his heart, branded her name across it when it should never have belonged to her, and then left him high and dry. Still, he was getting sick of hanging around the scene of the crime. He just didn’t know where else to go.
Lake Tahoe had once been his favorite get-away destination, a place where he could go to just sit back and enjoy the view of water as clear as a shined-up mirror. Now those crystal depths and the unmoving boulders along the water’s edge taunted him, bringing back memories of a happy proposal and a less-than-happy scene where his heart was handed back to him on a silver platter – bruised, broken, and bleeding.
He didn’t want to make any more memories like that. So he made a promise to himself: He would never let anyone break his heart again.
