Returning to Reality...

I actually did some writing today!! And realised it's been over a month since I finished my last book - since this time last month I was in Sydney already (it doesn't seem possible conference was that long ago!) Anyway, I knew it was time to tackle my revisions on Captive as I was starting to get twitchy. It felt good to be back in writing mode and I fell in love with my hero all over again. There's only four and a half months until it hits the shelves!!!

Speaking of Captive, here's the wonderfully dark and atmospheric cover. It really captures the tone of the book. And if you'd like to see some more fabulous work by the awesome artist, Tony Mauro, here is his website!

Gotta love Tony Mauro! I can't tell you how many books I've bought because I saw a beautiful cover he's done that got my interest piqued. That Captive cover is stunning, I love that pose in particular. :)

Happy revisions Christina!
