Cover for Jungle Heat + Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you all enjoy yourselves with some grilling and fireworks.

Two things to take care of today. One of which is the fact that Techno Crazed is on the list of Best Book Covers for 2011! Please go vote to show your support at Goodreads! The other is that I promised something great on Twitter when I got home, and today’s a perfect day to share it! I have the gorgeous cover for my next book Jungle Heat!

And I’m Off…

… to New York for the Romance Writers of America National Conference with a ton of other writers, approximately 2,000 or so. Oh boy! I’m more than a little nervous. Monday was spent packing, packing, and buying some last minute things.

As for some parting news, Jungle Heat, the first book in my The Amazon Chronicles series, is scheduled to be released at the end of July from Changeling Press.

Here’s the blurb…

An Amazon Princess and a weretiger must find enough love to heal their peoples’ painful history.

The Amazon Rainforest still contains a few secrets. One of these secrets is a hidden village of women whose history is filled with the horror of conquering men.

Adara Rukan, princess of the Amazons, ventures away from her village to find something waiting for her. Andrei “Rei” Makarov is a weretiger and a biologist on assignment. Can Rei and Adara find love enough to bridge their two separate worlds?

I’ll see everyone here again next week! Try not to miss me too much, okay?

In the meantime, make sure to add Techno Crazed to your Goodreads TBR pile and buy it now!
