OMG


Here is the gorgeous cover for my April 27, 2010 release Mistress by Mistake!!! I could not be more excited! Thank you cover designer Kristine Mills-Noble, illustrator Alan Ayers, and my editor Megan Records at Kensington, who wrote the perfect, perfect cover copy.

My scanner did not quite pick up the rich reds and maroons. In person, the coverflat is darker, more raspberry than orange, absolutely exquisite. I'm off to have a little cry.

What a fabulous cover, Maggie!! Love it. And to have Alan Ayers do you (er, yours) is a tribute to your writerly chops.

Leontine, thank you so much. MBM is the first of a trilogy---I can't wait to see how they top this!

Katiebabs, I'll plug in the AC for you. :) It really is soo beautiful I can hardly stand it.

Santa, I'm pretty much black and blue. It really is like a dream.

Marne, the colors are even better in real life. Red's my favorite color and to have my first book cover this gorgeous is just mind-boggling.
