I said all my gushy thank yous and told the story of how I got here in my last post (read that here) so I won't waste your time or scrolling space.
I'm thrilled now to share with you the cover for TARGET: Book One of the Unbroken Tales, coming October 12th, 2021. Artwork by Kirk DouPonce of DogEared Design.
The fairytales never mentioned this.
Pressured to choose a bride before his eighteenth birthday, Prince Lex is determined to do things the way he's read about in legends: run away to find his true love. But soon he is at the mercy of a band of outlaws who know more about his kingdom than he does. Quickly forced to face the reality--and naïveté--of his privileged palace life,he learns his people are suffering at the hands of greedy nobility, and they look not to Lex's parents for help, but to this band of outlaws led by a girl named Robyn.
Their problems grow worse when they discover a plot to assassinate Lex's parents. But while they race to save the kingdom, Lex's heart begins to race for Robyn. And the more time he spends with her, the less he can tell if she means to kill him, or kiss him. But when she finally shares her story, Lex finds himself wanting something he's never wanted before: revenge.
I cannot express to you how in love I am with this cover. As I wrap up final edits and move forward, I hope this is the start of a series worth remembering. I wanted a cover that would've made me pick up the book based on just seeing it, and Kirk has given me that and more.
Thank you, whoever reads this, for joining me on this journey. I'm feeling an odd mix of excitement and terror and a *rightness* I can't begin to describe. A feeling I sometimes thought I'd never feel, if I'm being honest. I hope you'll stick with me and be there when TARGET releases into the world on October 12th. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
