BECALMED: Fun with Book Covers


Becalmed Cover



The proposed cover by the designer at Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. I figure where there’s a cover, there’s bound to be a book someday.

And here’s the Back Cover Copy:

When a Southern woman with a broken heart falls for a widower with a broken boat, it’s anything but smooth sailing.

Tadie Longworth doesn’t spend much time worrying that she’s turning into one of Beaufort, North Carolina’s, spinsters. She has a gift shop full of her own jewelry designs and a sweet little sailboat to take her mind off the guy who got away. But now he’s back—with the drop-dead gorgeous wife he picked instead of Tadie—and he won’t leave her alone.

When widower Will Merritt sails into town with a broken boat and an inquisitive seven-year-old daughter, he provides the perfect distraction—until that distraction turns into something more when Tadie offers them shelter during a hurricane. Over candlelit board games, Jilly becomes the daughter she could have had and Will the man she always wanted . . . only, he’s sworn never to let another woman in his life. Any day now, he’s going to finish those repairs and that ship’s going to sail—straight out of Tadie’s life.

  1. This sounds like a winner. Is it near enough to finished to be tweeted as a ‘Watch out for” ? Or a Coming Soon ? That’s a great cover and stands out for the readers. I hope you have great success with it. Hugs

  2. As soon as I have a release date, I’ll let you know, David. I’d love to have your help on this (and I’ll send you a copy for Julia. See, thinking positively as we pray for her).

  3. Thanks, Deborah. It’s not romance in the strictest sense, but it has a romantic thread. All of my books have some love story in them.
