Another Cover Reveal!

Forgive me for posting my weekly blog a day late, my friends. But I think it was worth the wait and I hope you do too!

A few weeks ago, I shared my cover of FOR BETTER OR FOR WOLF, the fourth book in my wedding planner series that is releasing on September 16th. Today I am actually going to share the next cover in the series! FOR WITCH OR FOR POOR is releasing on October 14th and is now available for preorder as well.

Check out the cover and blurb below…

For Witch or For Poorer – Book 5 in the Paranormal Wedding Planner Series!

Witch Ebook Final new.jpg

When magic isn’t so magical.

A lonely wolf. Maeve Callahan has never had a true family to call her own. Recently adopted into the    West Coast pack, she will do anything to stop her past from destroying her newly found brothers. Unfortunately, the evil wolf who raised her and a vengeful coven have other plans. When a warlock is called in to help, Maeve’s instant attraction to him couldn’t be worse timing.

A power-shy warlock. Giz Kelly does not cast spells. Period. His father taught him the hard way that magic can destroy the people you love. But when the supernatural team he works for gets called in to help the pack, he finds himself breaking his vow in order to protect Maeve.

When the coven attacks and lives are at stake, can Maeve and Giz embrace their powers to save the pack and each other? And in doing so realize that love can be the greatest magic of all?

So what do you think???? I love the kitties myself 🙂

Cover Reveal Celebration!

Last week I teased that you would soon be getting more details on my upcoming releases in my paranormal wedding planner series. FOR BETTER OR FOR WOLF will release on September 16th which is just seven short weeks from now!

I know many of you have been waiting for the next books in this series and so I am giving you not one, but two that will be coming your way this fall.

To kick off the celebration, let’s start with a cover reveal AND a blurb for the book. Check it out below.

For Better or For Wolf

Wolf“Relationship” is not a four-letter word.

Olivia Jennings is all about following the rules. A psychiatrist with a tragic past, she dedicates her life to helping others. Controlling all aspects of her life—especially relationships—protects her battered heart. But when she learns supernaturals exist, her carefully constructed world crumbles. Drawn into counseling a werewolf pack, she butts heads with the ridiculously handsome but infuriating wolf determined to protect her.

Connor Dawson is all about bucking the status quo. He’s not looking for commitment or love. In fact, after being rejected by his pack, he’s certain he’s immune to that particular emotion. But when Olivia inserts herself into wolf business, his hackles stand straight up. No one is more surprised than Connor when their teasing banter turns into serious attraction.

When Olivia and Connor are thrown into the middle of a pack war, things heat up…with an attempted murder, a political power struggle, and their sizzling chemistry. Will this explosive situation finally bring them together—or blow them apart?

So what do you think???

I really loved writing Connor and Olivia’s story and can’t wait to share it with you!!

WHERE is the journey taking us?

I hope you’ve been having a good time on this journey. We have been talking about re-covering my Mind Sweeper Series. We’ve touched on WHY, WHO, WHEN and WHAT. Today we’re going to talk about WHERE.

When you decide to change or re-brand your books, it isn’t just the print book cover that you need to worry about (if only it were that easy, my friends). No, re-branding touches ALL aspects of the book.

First, the retailers need to be updated. When you download the books from Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, or Kobo, or Apple you now see the amazing (if I say so myself) covers.

But that also means updating my website with new book covers as well as an social media that carries the AE Jones brand, like Facebook, Twitter, etc.

And let’s not forget my newsletters, and other areas where my covers appear. It can be a bit daunting to change all of this, but it’s worth it to give your covers a new look and feel. Because covers also convey emotion. Take the two covers of my series that deal with Jean Luc and Talia – I was looking for emotion and I got that and more in these two covers!

Now to the WHAT of our Journey…

And away we go again on this journey of new covers for my Mind Sweeper series. Over the past few weeks, we’ve talked about the WHY, WHO, and WHEN of recovering my series. Today I’m going to talk about the WHAT.

Sweeper Ebook Final (1)What is it that I am trying to say with my covers? With the new covers, I wanted to convey more of the Urban Fantasy vibe. To give readers a hint of the paranormal or other that my Mind Sweeper world lives in.

And this is when the fun and creativity comes into play.

My cover artist conveyed the sense of other with color. The purples, blues, pinks and turquoise takes us down a path of being a bit different, yet the colors all tie together overall, making the books compliment each other.

Then there’s the smoke or glow around the characters on the covers that give you that paranormal sense.Shifter Final Ebook (1)

Backgrounds also help convey a message. Since this series is Urban Fantasy, the urban (or in this case grunge) backdrop is important. Believe it or not, each background plays a part in that particular book’s story. For example, part of Shifter Wars takes place in a body shop, so it seemed appropriate to showcase Kyle standing in one.

And one of the coolest parts of the Shifter Wars cover is the cat sitting on the car. He plays an important part in the story as well!

Mind Sweeper has several pivotal scenes that take place in empty warehouses which lends itself to that urban feel.

Sentinel Lost’s background of the hallway on one side, and the stairs on the other represents choices. In that book, Kyle has to make a number of choices when it comes to love, her family, her own safety, and finally her life.

Sentinel Ebook Final (1)Even the font type conveys a “feeling” of other for the stories.

And we can’t forget about the pics on the t-shirts. For Mind Sweeper, the little girl with the magic wand is a perfect example of Kyle. Trying to find her way in the world when she doesn’t exactly “fit in” with everyone else.

The wolf on her Shifter Wars t shirt is pretty self-explanatory, (I hope) and finally the key on her t shirt on Sentinel Lost is the crux behind Kyle’s entire story arc.

Am I making your head hurt yet? Needless to say, my cover artist rocked these covers! And I wanted to share with you the WHAT behind the covers to give you an idea of what they represent for the series. And also to let you know about the thought behind them.

Let me know what you think…

Hello! If you’ve been following along with my blogs over the past few weeks, I’ve been talking about the new covers for my Mind Sweeper Series.

Anticipation

Years ago (actually decades ago) I can remember several commercials showing ketchup pouring oh so slowly out of the bottle as Carly Simon sang Anticipation. And that song has been playing repeatedly in my head today.

Maybe it’s because I am so excited that next Monday is COVER REVEAL day. And here is a little secret for you. I can’t wait to show you the covers to my new trilogy coming this fall. I am so excited about it, that I will be giving you a cover reveal for the entire Realm Series. Which means you will see not one, not two, but THREE covers next week.

Yay! There will also be a Realm cover reveal video and a teaser too. Icing on that awesome cake, right?

I have found over the years that for me the excitement of gift giving is not when I receive something, but when I get to watch my friends and family unwrap something from me. And this same emotion carries over in my writing to my readers. So next week, you get to see the covers for the first time. Misha, Aleksei, and Sergei can’t wait to meet you!

Cover Reveal Times Three!

As promised, my paranormal wedding planner series is getting new covers! Yay! And in true “Ta-Da Fashion” I am showing you all three at once, including my cover for TO HAVE AND TO HOWL which will release on November 13th, but can be ordered now! So check it out all out below and tell me what you think of the new covers and the new book!!!

And if that isn’t enough fun for you, for a limited time, the first book in the series, IN SICKNESS AND IN ELF is on sale for 99 cents! So if you haven’t tried this series, give it a whirl. And if you can do me a favor and let your friends and family know about my series, that would really help a writer out 🙂

Just so you know…the new covers are on the digital books. The print covers will be changed in the next couple of weeks!

And…drum roll please….Introducing TO HAVE AND TO HOWL

To Have Final EbookLaw means following the rules. Love means breaking them.

Julia Cole is a lawyer on a mission. After three long years, her husband’s murderers have been convicted. Until their leader breaks out of magically-strengthened, impossible-to-break-handcuffs in the courtroom, that is. Someone is helping them. And that someone is threatening Julia. But she will not back down from them or the man tasked to protect her…a man who scrambles her long-buried emotions.

Jack Dawson is a werewolf with a secret. One that could change his life forever. But his problems have to take a back seat while he protects Julia. He can’t afford to let down his guard—against the evil forces threatening Julia, against his growing feelings for her, fighting to be heard, and against his secret—which could destroy everything.

Can Julia and Jack finally let go of their pasts and begin a new happy ever after together?

Let’s Have Some Fun

It’s time to make some noise, my friends! I’ve been hinting about what is coming with my wedding planner series, but now I’m going to lay out the plan over the next few weeks just for you.

This week, I will be doing a cover reveal times three! Not only will I be sharing the new covers for book 1 and book 2 of my series, but you will also get to see the cover and blurb for TO HAVE AND TO HOWL (and preorder the book if you are so inclined 🙂 )

As part of the celebration, I’m putting IN SICKNESS AND IN ELF, book 1 of the series on sale for a limited time at 99 cents.

I’ll also share a book trailer with you and some fun video tips about paranormal law, since the heroine in my new release is a lawyer.

All this is leading up to TO HAVE AND TO HOWL’s release on November 13th.

Yee-haa! Are you ready for some fun? I sure am!

A Writer’s Version of a Face Lift

Have I intrigued you? Well, the sort of face lift I’m describing doesn’t involve a plastic surgeon. For writers our platform needs to change as we grow and change as well. So I have been doing a little “tweaking”…hee hee.

The first tweak was to my website. I changed it up a little bit, so check it out when you get an opportunity.

The next tweak is a biggie – drum roll please – after thinking long and hard about it, I am changing my paranormal wedding planner covers. No, I did not fall and hit my head. Let me explain. While I think my current covers for the series are beautiful and my cover artist did everything that I asked her to do, I don’t think that they capture the true “spirit” of the series.

So mid-October, I will be revealing not one, not two, but THREE new wedding planner covers! The first two will be new renditions of IN SICKNESS AND IN ELF and FROM THIS FAE FORWARD. The third cover will be TO HAVE AND TO HOWL, the third book in the series that will be releasing the second week of November! Yay!

I can’t wait to share them with you! We’re going to have a fun-filled fall together – I promise!!
