Throwing Confetti! Cover Reveal for Beer and Groping in Las Vegas!

I can’t quite believe it! This is my first ever cover! And it’s HERE! And I absolutely adore it! The awesome Dawné Dominique is the cover artist.

The other good news is that the publication date got moved up from January to December! So here’s the skinny:

A contemporary geek romance
Publisher: Secret Cravings Publishing
Release Date: December 19, 2012!!
Length: Novelette

Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she accidentally makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It’s granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they’re surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.

Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

What do y’all think?

    OMG! How did I Just see this? Absolutely LOVE the cover! I know we aren’t supposed to “judge a book by its cover” but I can’t help it. I can’t wait to read!

  36. Flossie Benton Rogers October 24, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    Interesting post! I like it when past experience lends itself to our writing endeavors. The excitement of receiving a “fall in love with” cover puts us over the moon. I felt the same way, and Dawne surely is a magician. Good luck with your book!

    Slick. Gorgeous. WANT. So I’m watching carefully for your release date, because after beta-reading one of your novels, I’m a serious fan.
