Cover love

I can't help it, I am in love with these covers. :)  I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what's coming up! These are my beauties...

The Duende and the Muse - short fantasy. First published by The Wild Rose Press, I just re-released this one on Kindle and Smashwords. I've rewritten it to include a bit more about the Elder Muses, which were fun to write with a modern twist. Read reviews, an excerpt and learn more about this title here!

Clio's Choice - short paranormal.  First published by Freya's Bower as The Lure of the Vine. I always hated that title, but could never think of a good one. Clio's Choice is better, and this cover's definitely better! After I wrote The Duende and the Muse, I wanted to do something a little more serious about the gods. I have several gods and goddesses in other stories, but in this one, it's The God of the Vine, Dionysus (hence the awful title, lol).  Still rewriting this story, but the rights revert to me after this month, so I'm aiming for sometime next month to re-release it. This cover model's gorgeous, and I love all her shots, but managed to whittle it down to this one.

Writing Off the Past - short contemporary. First published by Wild Child Publishing as Liberation via Pen -- another title that made me cringe, and completely my own fault, as I simply blanked on it. This one's more fitting, and the cover's just as fun as the original. The rights revert to me after this month too, so I'll re-release it sometime this summer. 

Soul for Sale - paranormal novella. First published by Eternal Press as One Soul for Sale, it's sometimes categorized as horror. The rights revert to me in June, so I will likely re-release it in mid-June on Amazon and Smashwords. If you're at all familiar with the story, the cat is perfect. If you're not, I hope you'll buy it and become familiar with it. :)

Picture This - contemporary romantic women's fiction. First published by Eternal Press, the rights will revert to me in August, so after a rewrite, I will re-release it then.

Wilderness Girl - contemporary humorous erotic romance. Yeah, that's a mouthful, lol, but I had fun mashing the genres. First published by Freya's Bower, the rights will become mine again in September, so look for it under this new cover at Amazon and Smashwords.

Just the Right Amount of Wrong - contemporary erotic interracial women's fiction. I can't tell you how many times I've revised this story. I'll have a big announcement about it next week (it's already out there, shhh!) but wanted to share this cover. Got beefcake? Oh yeah.
Dead to Rights - fantasy/urban fantasy.  Another shiny brand new story! I'm very excited about it. I know I already posted this one, but I love it so much, I'm sharing it again. :)

I had so much fun creating these, and got so carried away, I even bought an image for a story I haven't finished writing. I'm going to submit the story to one pub I've targeted, but if it's rejected, the cover's ready to go. And it's fantastic! lol

Another full-length fantasy novel, The Magic of Lavender, is subbed to a publisher, but I also have a very cool cover for that all set just in case. This story's the first in The Goddess Connection series. I have the second story in the series somewhat outlined in my head, but need the time to write it. :)

So these are my lovelies. What do you think?

Did you do all of them yourself? They're amazing!

I especially like The Duende and the Muse.

Thanks so much Maria! Yep, I can't blame anyone else for these, lol. I don't know how to do complex layering of images but I'm happy with these. :)
