Reading book series: Can you go the extra mile?

I love reading book series. Mystery, romance, thriller, sci-fi, or fantasy. doesn’t matter to me. I am avid about them.

Yew to a Kill Cover Reveal

Hey, everybody! Today is the day you have been waiting for – it’s COVER REVEAL DAY! But first let me tell you, if you didn’t read yesterday’s blog post, go do that now because there is an excerpt from this book in it. The info on this cover comes from my dear cover artist, who took my input and found the artwork. I then helped put it all together. It was a lot of fun! If you haven’t checked out my other covers, you can do that under the A1-Author’s-Assistant tab. I write and I do covers. I also edit,
