#8Sunday: Superman has a cover!

Click on image for WeWriWe
I've had a very exciting week! First off, I finished the draft of To the Wind. It's an early draft, but it's nice to have something done. And, second but not least, I got a cover for my new romantic comedy, Searching for Superman:

New cover art is always a big moment for me and to celebrate, I thought I'd do a snippet from the opening of book.  

If the perfect man existed, why did he keep eluding her?   Stephanie Holbrook felt a yearning for romance ashe watched the couple tucked into the corner of the Starbucks in which she and her sister Liz sat with their coffee. The couple had their heads together, his knee touching against hers, the man dipping his finger into the foam of his drink and holding it out so the woman could lick it off. They might as well have held a sign that said, ‘We’re crazy about each other.’
“You haven’t heard three words I’ve said.” Liz brought Stephanie back from her reverie while rocking Max’s stroller with her foot.
      Stephanie smiled at her sister. “Sure I have-- Sophie’s birthday party.”  

Searching for Superman comes out on June 3
