A Cover is like a Portrait

And my next novel has a cover!

That's right, my next novel, Of Pens and Swords has a cover!





I LOVE my cover. I love that it's different from the cover of my first book because they are very different novels!

Here's the blurb for Of Pens and Swords

Seventeen-year-old Cyra Berque wants two things in life: a date with Rochan and a chance to show the world a one-handed girl can fence in the Olympics. When Cyra’s coach tells her he’s taught her everything he can, he sets her up with another coach, one who could take her all the way to the top, but the new coach costs more. Feeling her dreams slipping out of reach, Cyra agrees to tutor a ballerina with a rich father and a D minus in English. He’ll pay Cyra three times her usual tutor rate if she can get his precious daughter to a passing grade. The ballerina only has eyes for Rochan, and she’s promised Cyra to turn her D into a full fledged F if Cyra doesn’t help her win the heart of Rochan.

  2. Okay, I love the colors and the font! And I just now realized that the dress is also a quill! SO COOL!

    1. I saw a version where they had my name in the same font as the title. I'm thinking about buying it from the cover artist to have that as the font for my business cards!

  3. I like the conflicts of the story. Seems like one of the characters is going to lose out. Hope it's not Cyra.

    1. Tee hee! I cannot say a word on the outcome, but some choices are harder than other others!

  4. Ohmygosh! I not only love the cover, I love the plot, too. I agree with Ken. I hope Cyra comes out on top. I've enjoyed the recent blog hop and connecting with bloggers online. All the best with this new book.

  5. Ooh, I love the blue, and I love the images in the cover, too! The premise sounds neat, with a lot of tough decisions, I'd imagine. Congrats!

  8. Awesome! And that is a truly great cover, not what I expected when you talked about the story. I can only imagine how many stories from fencing club somehow made it into this book, though. ^_^

    1. To be clear, I couldn't put most of our fencing club stories in--too scandalous for print! (also, what happens in dueling club...)
