A New Cover for Sailing out of Darkness! Releases August 15, 2013

I am so very excited to reveal the new cover from WhiteFire’s talented Roseanna White. She did a great preliminary one, but it just didn’t feel quite right. You know what I mean?

So she looked for ideas. I looked for ideas. I thought I’d found one. She thought it flat. And then she sent me this:

The tag line on the back:

LOVE CONQUERS ALL? Maybe for some folk.

River Laker, of Silver Seas PR, came up with that line, tweaked a little by Robin Patchen.

Now I can’t stop grinning. The gorgeous cover for Becalmed, my debut release, makes me giddy as well, but Sailing out of Darkness is a very different story, with much darker elements. There’s light at the end–and some in the middle–which I think Roseanna captured beautifully.

This cover didn’t even need to show a sailboat. With that sun shining under her arm, it looks to me as if Samantha’s sailing on her own, propelled by the light.

So tell me: would you buy it?

The book releases on August 15 in both e-book and paperback. Stay tuned!

  1. Thanks, Robin. Roseanna said she’d give it a border for the e-book cover so it will stand out, but in print, this is going to be smashing, in my humble opinion. And I figure I can say that as I had nothing to do with the design!!
