Introducing EVERLIVING

Yippee-kay-ay! It's been a good couple weeks in Bookland. I've been going back and forth with my fabulous designer Kathy Campbell at Gorham Printing, and this is the cover we've come up with:

4/5 of my critique group gave feedback on the text, but I've gone ahead and sent it for formatting because my fifth reader is too wigged out by paranormal books to read it!

Here's the full cover:

In case the back cover copy is too small for you to make out, it reads:

“You may as well love the moon.

Daphne Lindstrom, the beautiful young wife of Red Gap's most prominent citizen, vanished mysteriously not long after her unhappy marriage.

More than a century later, botany graduate student Ben Platt finds himself laid up in the former redwood logging town, now reborn as a tourist destination, thanks to a novel based on Daphne's story. But theories on her tragic fate are not the only things to survive.

For generations Daphne has haunted the men of one particular family, driving them to obsession and disaster. And when she appears to Ben, he must decide whether to answer her call for help, and at what cost.

I might have to change the byline of BellaVita Press to "Supplier of annual beach reads since 2009." 

The first launch party is slated for Monday, June 6, at 7:00 p.m. Time and place TBA. Looking forward to seeing you there!
