Cover Reveal for Facsimile by Vicki Weavil

So this week is just an embarrassment of riches it seems.

In addition to revealing my own cover I get to reveal one for my incredible critique partner Vicki Weavil! I will be upfront, when she told me she was writing sci-fi I was worried. Not because I didn’t think she could handle it, but because I worried I’d be a terrible critique partner for her. Despite being really into Fantasy as a kid, sci-fi never did it for me (I prefer magic over lasers!) However, I can tell you this book really made me love sci-fi! Vicki created a great story with a cast of characters that I instantly wanted to spend time with. Another great thing about this book is the diverse cast. The protagonist is Latino, and two guys she spends the most time with are Indian and Asian. It really made a nice change, particularly in science fiction. So much incredible representation is in this book. So pre-order your copy today! It’s an easy sell with a stunning cover like this!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

 

For a ticket to Earth, seventeen-year-old Anna-Maria “Ann” Solano is willing to jettison her birth planet, best friend, and the boy who loves her. Especially since all she’s required to do is escort Dace Keeling, a young naturalist, through the wilderness of the partially terraformed planet Eco. Ann‘s determination to escape the limitations of her small, frontier colony never falters, until Dace’s expeditions uncover three secrets. One offers riches, one shatters Ann’s perceptions of herself, and one reveals that the humans stranded on Eco are not its only inhabitants.

 

Ann’s willing to sacrifice friendship and love for a new life on Earth. But when an entire species is placed in jeopardy by her actions, she must make a choice – fulfill the dream that’s always sustained her, or save the planet she’s never considered home.

“The Role” by Richard Taylor Pearson – Cover Reveal

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for my upcoming novel “The Role.” Ben Baldwin, the designer, worked closely with me, my editor, and the press, and I absolutely adore the result.

The idea that such a talented artist drew something based on what I wrote is truly amazing. Ben’s interpretations of my characters – some of which are exactly what I pictured, others wildly different – are perfect. As we get closer to the release date, I’ll reveal which actors I would choose to play each character. For now, I’m just happy to look at my cover and know I’m one step closer to publication Without further ado, here it is:

But his life changes when he bumps into Kevin Caldwell, an old crush from acting school. Kevin helps Mason land a role that could make him the next Broadway star. However, as rehearsals begin, Mason learns that there’s a lot more drama than just what’s on stage. With a personal trainer claiming he can mold his body to resemble a Greek statue, an underhanded understudy waiting in the wings to replace him, a megalomaniacal director, and Kevin hellbent on breaking up Mason and his boyfriend, Mason must choose how much he is willing to sacrifice to make his Broadway dream a reality.
