New Cover Art

Squee!!!! This was how I pictured Freedom Fantasies, the place where women live out their ultimate fantasies. Syneca the cover art goddess totally nailed it! I'm very excited about book 2 and hope everyone enjoys Brooke and Liam's story.
Edits are done for Play With Me, so I should have a release date soon.
In other news:
The DH and I went to see Kid Rock and Bon Jovi on Saturday. We had a blast. I was surprised how good a show Kid Rock put on. Yesterday I was a bit sore from all the jumping up and down and dancing. LOL After being in the car for over 4 hours the day before we had to get back in the car and drive to Boston another hour. We had a nice lunch with the family and got to see the BIL's new house. I personally couldn't live in Boston, but they have a gorgeous house nonetheless. We got home just before 7 and me with a major migraine. I went to bed and didn't wake up til this morning.
Hopefully I'll get to enjoy the pool sometime today. I have to get back to self-edits on the romantic comedy. There's some interest on my editors part. Keep your fingers crossed!
Happy Monday!

  1. Love the cover!

    Glad you enjoyed the concert! Did Kid sing that ballad from the late 90's? Blanking on the title...and did Bon Jovi sing 'Silent Night'?

  2. I love your cover art Amber! Love this title too.

    Sorry I've been Missing for a while. I took a break that ended up longer than I thought it would.

  3. Amber you got a gorgeous book cover from Syneca! The cover Goddess was smiling on you. Best wishes on everything. You have so many good things on the horizon.
    XXOO Kat

    That would be wicked to see Kid Rock in concert. So jealous.
