I will admit that I had absolutely no idea what I wanted on the cover of Hiding In Plain Sight. I knew I wanted it to be beautiful, I knew it needed to accurately represent the story, and I knew I wanted to see it as soon as possible. That’s it. That’s all I knew. When I opened the email with the first mock-up of this cover I instantly fell in love. Like heart racing, palms sweating, teenage girl at a Bieber concert in love.
I don’t know who those people are on the cover, but they are now Kierra and Bryan. That little bit of the street you can see at the bottom, that’s so important to the story (no spoilers!). The cover artist is a genius, or perhaps a mind reader, or maybe even part witch, I’m not entirely sure. I know that I envy her talent. What I created in this book in words she captured in a graphic form with this cover. It is perfection!
The best part of the cover for me though is that my idol who has become my friend, and my mentor graced the cover with her quote about my book! I was more nervous to send Roxanne St. Claire my book to read than I was to submit to publishers and agents, her opinion means that much to me. More!
Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author says “Hiding In Plain Sight is a sexy, scary page-turner for fans of breathtaking romantic suspense!”
From the back cover:
Kierra Centerand was once vivacious and outgoing, that all changed the night her stepfather killed her family in an explosion that authorities wrote off as an accident. Now, ten years later Kierra has returned to the small town of Briarview to find answers, confront her demons, and see if she can finally move on with her life. Not much has changed, Briarview is still the quaint, charming, small town Kierra left behind. Only now her high school boyfriend is the sheriff, and her stepfather is somewhere in the town, hiding in plain sight.
When Bryan Donaldson sees Kierra again for the first time he is surprised, she’s no longer the fun blonde he remembers, but rather she’s shy, prone to panic attacks, and hiding from the world. When Kierra’s stepfather starts making threats, Bryan is determined to keep her safe in his arms, and in his bed, for life.
The release date is February 11th, 2016. I cannot wait to get this book into your hands, it’s a dream that’s a lifetime in the making so these last few weeks are absolutely torturous!
