1/7/2017 My beautiful cover!































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.
