Rainbow Award Winner!

I'm excited to share the news that the cover art for "Visible Friend" scored a 1st place Rainbow Award over at Elisa Roelle's LGBT review blog. Check it out! I'm really proud of this cover and how well its been received. It was potentially risky since the iconic element in romance covers is a slice or two of beefcake, but when I read KZ's vision for the cover with the hand, needle, and blossoms, I couldn't get the image out of my head. It's great to hear that others are appreciating the conceptual look too!

I'm pretty lucky over at Dreamspinner Press. Everyone is great to work with, and authors (and management!) let me have a *huge* measure of creative freedom that any artist worth her salt would treasure. And I get to work in a range of styles! Check out this more manga-ish cover I just finished up for next month's "Fire Play".

Congratulations on the win. I love that cover *because* it's not the typical two beefcakes without faces. It promises a story beyond the smut we love.

Thanks, Pia!!! <3 I can appreciate a sexy bod as much as the next gal, but sometimes a more conceptual image packs a stronger punch.
