Cover Reveal! ~ Where Trains Collide by Amber Stokes

Where Trains Collide Banner

I’m so delighted to see another novella by my friend, Amber Stokes! Hey guys, she’s on a roll! Right? Haha! Well, today we’re revealing the cover of this new novella, and folks, this one is to die for (please excuse my choice of words!).

So, here we go …

WhereTrainsColllide Now you have to admit, this is a truly sweet cover. How doesn’t this put a smile on your face? Impossible! This cover speaks of summer fading into autumn. You can tell by not only the sky and flowers in their hands, but by also the cloths they’re wearing. Yep, there’s a nice chill in the air. The font colors are a simple white, but the lovely sweetheart that dots the italicized ‘i’ in the title is the heart of it and promises a sweet story.

I love the train tracks! There’s something about them. They speak of a journey that two people will take which will change their lives forever … and for the better, too. Doesn’t that make you want to read their story? Certainly does!

Well folks, these are the thousands I can pull out of this lovely cover (even though they’re not up to a thousand. You should be used to my figure of speech by now ;))!

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
