I'm super excited to reveal the cover of my next historical romance, Freedom's Embrace. It's coming soon from Ellora's Cave...within the next six weeks or so. I will announce the official release date as soon as I know it, on Facebook, Twitter, my website, and here at the blog. Stay tuned for that!
This is a super awesome moment for me, because there was a time when I thought this book would never be published. I wanted a publisher for this one. It needs and deserves a broad audience, and despite the very wonderful readers I have, my name alone won't do.
The story takes place in 1849, and the heroine, Naomi, is a runaway slave. The hero, Jonathan, is an octoroon doctor who passes for white. Something about this setup made some publishers very, very uncomfortable, hence a big pile of rejections for my beloved tale.
Finally, someone saw my vision Krishan Trotman @EC. Now the story will finally be told and I an so thrilled.... and a little emotional.
I think I made you wait long enough. :) Behold, my lovely cover for Freedom's Embrace.
I don't know about you, but I think it's the cat's pajamas. It's evocative, the font is pretty, my name is spelle correctly. Sweet!
