New Cover for Lady Myddelton’s Lover

I bit the bullet and changed the cover for my novella after a few threads on the Romance Divas forum gave me a wake-up call about my mental and emotional disassociation from my writing. I try not to take myself too seriously so I won’t get hurt or feel dejected, but the thin edge of the wedge is that I can end up not being assertive and confident when needed and necessary. Keeping the same ol’ same ol’ slightly generic and non-romance cover was expressing to all that I wasn’t throwing my whole heart into self-publishing the book, that it was just a whim, that I wasn’t that serious about building my writing career even with this tiny baby step. The Killion Group/Hot Damn Stock gave away a few images for Christmas and I downloaded a few beautiful ones, but was too chicken to use them (mostly giving myself the excuse that I would look lame using stock images). Funnily enough, one of the photos I downloaded and tucked away on my hard drive matched my heroine perfectly, and so with a little cropping and some Photoshop, I used it for the new cover of Lady Myddelton’s Lover.

It’s not 100% perfect, but it fits the mood and the genre, and it expresses to potential readers that I am not just throwing something out there to see what sticks. And it’s rather pretty and sensual if I do say so myself!

I also uploaded a new work of non-fiction about conducting research for historical novels. It hasn’t fully processed on all platforms, so stay tuned for an announcement of its availability.
