Angelus Rose wins an Award

March 2020 3rd Place BCA WINNER

Thanks to all of you who voted, Angelus Rose came in 3rd place in the cover contest!

I really love this cover image. It’s hard to see online, but the angel (or is she a black-winged devil?) is holding a ripped sheet up in place of her toga.  I like the suggestion that she’s not wearing anything underneath it — kind of suits a book about a succubus perfectly, doesn’t it?

Her pose and the angle of her wings seems to indicate that she’s soaring upward, but she’s surrounded by a storm of loose black feathers. She makes me think of Icarus, with his wings falling apart the higher he climbed.

The competition was stiff — the winner got more than 400 votes — so I’m truly honored that Angelus Rose did as well as it did.

Also, if you are a book reviewer who wants to take a look at Angelus Rose, it’s only available on NetGalley until the end of this month. You need to jump!  Otherwise, you can drop me a note through the contact form above and I’ll set you up.

For everyone else, there are just a few more days to enter the Goodreads contest to win a copy of Angelus Rose.  I’m giving away 100 ebooks and only 100 people have entered so far, so your odds of winning are pretty good.  Just click the link below.

      Thank you! I wonder sometimes if I’d sell more books with a shirtless dude on the cover, but I really like this image.
