1/7/2017 My beautiful cover!






























Read an excerpt from ‘The Black Witch’ by Laurie Forest


Eagerly awaiting getting my hands on some of these ARCs. It’s going to be extraordinary to hold this book in my hands – to flip through it and see it with a spine. Final cover should be coming soon – have seen a possible cover that took my breath away.  Keeping fingers crossed that the cover is approved by all.
