I’ve been holding off releasing the title or book cover but realized today that the cover designer had already posted the book to their portfolio so it doesn’t seem all that necessary to keep it under wraps any longer. :)
So, the title of my book is Alpha Next Door. I’ve had this title in mind for a year and I started the book on a bit of a lark after a conversation with my sister about how much I love werewolves (we’re both huge fans of a certain wolfy series that comes on MTV) but how I didn’t really enjoy the dark stories that much. I mean, I can write dark, don’t get me wrong, but I have a wacky sense of humor sometimes and when I read, I like books that are lighthearted and funny, while also fulfilling my desire for all the usual werewolf stuff like strong men and feisty women.
I couldn’t have been hit harder by a plot bunny if it’d been driving a 4×4 straight at me and I sat down that very night and wrote out the two opening scenes of this book. The story idea hasn’t left me alone since. The book is almost ready and I can’t wait to release it. If even one person other than myself enjoys this story, I’ll be thrilled.
The cover is, in my biased opinion, fantastic! (It comes from derangeddoctordesign.com.) I ordered this back in December and I still look at it and squee. :D
So, I’m pushing for a May 31st release date for the first book in my new series under this new pen name! It’s taken me much longer than I planned originally to get here, but I wanted to be sure I’d be able to deliver the series books in a timely manner once I released the first one.
Stay tuned for a cover and title reveal in the next month or two!
I’ve approved the cover for my book! I’m thrilled with how it turned out and I can’t wait to have it in hand. Of course, the book isn’t ready yet and since I don’t have a release date, I’m not planning to reveal the cover (or title) just yet. But soon!
