Worth the Risk Release Date Update
The release date for Worth the Risk has been moved forward to June 13, 2018. This time travel romance with an immortal hero and a modern, sometimes psychic heroine, is shaping up to be my longest novel to date, so it has taken longer than I anticipated to complete. In the meantime, the good news is the pre-order period available in most markets has been extended with the price set to $2.99. Pre-order on Amazon at this price will be made available for a short time before release. I am also considering a box set of the previous books, but until then, the single titles available to catch you up to Worth the Risk are, in order:
The Castle - This novella length story is set in the fantasy world of time travelers and introduces Heather and her ill-fated love with the immortal Eric.
If I Stay - A full length novel, this story is set mostly in Regency England and also the fantasy world of the time travelers. The heroine, Ariana (Heather and Eric's daughter), is a time traveler with amnesia, and her hero is Justin, a Regency duke.
An Unsuitable Entanglement - This novella length story is set mostly in the fantasy world of the time travelers, with time traveling stops along the way! The heroine is Alison, a time traveler who begins her adventures with a hero far less serious than she, the outrageous Lord Percy from Regency England (the best friend of Justin).
Ghost of a Promise - this full length novel is a departure from the world of time travelers, but here, in this romantic suspense story set in a contemporary setting, is where you'll meet Carrie, the future heroine in Worth the Risk. But if you want to jump in here, to this first of the two stories featuring the Riley siblings, feel free to do so! Ben Riley, Carrie's brother, must work out the mystery of his death (yep, it's a ghost story) and save his wife Beth, who is the troubled heroine at the mercy of the worst in-laws a husband could ever imagine.
Carrie and Eric (aka Nick until she learns his secret) have an epic adventure coming to you soon, I promise!

pre-made ebook romance covers: a list of where to find them
How about relaxing with a cup of coffee and your favorite romance. Your favorite romance cover, that is. Dream a little for your story!
So I've compiled a list of designers who offer pre-made covers (most in the under $50 range) and thought I'd move this "research" to a blog post. I had a great time browsing the covers and I hope you do too! Oh, and most, if not all, of these designers will work with you for the customized look, if that is the route you want to take now or later. (One more thing: I linked to the site's home page and not always directly to the "pre-made" page, but you'll find it.)
Please keep in mind these are only suggestions for you to follow up on and make your own decision. I have not been paid to recommend anyone. Also note that some vendors/publishers require the cover to be a different size (i.e. larger) than what some designers provide.
