Cover Reveal: Ronie Kendig’s FALCON with giveaway!

RFFgiveawaysmlMy fabulous friend and stellar writer, Ronie Kendig, has just released the last cover in her Quiet Professionals Series ~ FALCON ~ which releases in May 2015 (groan, groan, I know!) .

I’ve long admired Kirk DouPonce‘s design and creativity but this cover is terrific at showcasing this story. 

That’s still not the best part – there is a great story behind this cover. As with the cover models for Raptor 6 and Hawk, “Falcon” is another authentic, or as we would say down under, dinky-di American hero – Marine Sergeant Gabriel Martinez, a double amputee and

Audrey Whitman’s dreams are coming true. Now that their five kids are grown, she and her husband, Grant, are turning their beloved family home into a cozy bed and breakfast just a mile outside of Langhorne, Missouri.

QuoftheweekSo, I was going to whip up a super intelligent bookish question of the week but I got sidetracked by the cover reveal of Lori Benton‘s 2015 release, The Wood’s Edge.  If you have hung around here long enough you know what a fan I was of Lori’s debut novel, Burning Sky, and while I still have to post my review of The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn, I can assure you it is a wonderful read, although didn’t push Burning Sky off its perch in my mind.

Thanks to the wonderful folk at Tyndale House, here are the releases Tyndale has for us in early 2015.

You may be able to tell by the placement in my collage that I ADORE the cover for Allison Pittman’s On Shifting Sand ~ the colours, the texture, the model’s face ~ all combine with the story outline to grip me. Love it!

The Song and Old Fashioned are both based on screenplays so obviously they have a  bit of a different look from a traditional cover, blending stills from the movies. As they look more like DVD covers to me,

The Seahorse Legacy by Serena Chase

Seahorse Kindle Cover copySynopsis:~

a Pirate, bound by a centuries-old oath – a Knight, determined to prove her calling – a Legacy, demanding surrender

As Keeper of the Seahorse Legacy, Cazien de Pollis is a King among pirates, divinely appointed to dispense justice on the seas. Bound by the sacred oath of a long-dead ancestor, he must fulfill a contract to wed the green-eyed Oracle’s Daughter named therein—or risk losing everything he and his people hold dear. But at nineteen, with the identity of his betrothed only recently revealed, Cazien resents the contract—and the urgency within him to see it satisfied.
