We Have Cover!!!

While I was playing away at conference (I mean working hard at conference) my editor and cover artist, the fabulous Angela Anderson, created the most amazing cover for my book. It's dark and sexy and has the gothic feel I wanted. And just look at that brooding hero! OMG. I'm so in love with it. So are my two daughters and if it comes to that my husband is smitten too! Although I think he's probably more interested in the heroine but that's fine by me, as so far he's printed out three copies of the cover (one for me, one each for our girls) and used up all his coloured ink in the process. And didn't even mind!!!
I'd love to know what you think!
In other news I've also received my second round of edits so will be diving into them today. My editor hopes it won't be too long before details of Foretaste of Forever are up on TWRP website. Squeeeee!!! I've had so much excitement this week it's probably illegal!!

Very sexy. Very dark. Can't wait to cruise TWRP site and see it up there.
I'm supposed to be getting stuff organised for the Clayton's Conference but I couldn't resist coming over to see what your news was.

RC and Sandie thank you both so much! I love the WRP covers, and this one is even better than I'd imagined. I'm so glad you like it!

Sussan, too funny!! I must admit I frightened the dog with all the leaping around I did after I opened the file!!

Amanda, is it wrong to love a cover so much? I get separation anxiety when I leave the house!!

Robbie! thanks for dropping by. I'm stoked you like the cover. Can't wait until I get a release date!

Sorry about the deleted post. That'll teach me to hit the publish button without proof reading properly.

Anyway, congratulations on a fantastic cover, Christina. Absolutely adore the gothic feel.

You must be over the moon.
