"Mexican Lassie!"

 Today is the 14th, which means it is one month to my newest book, A Stretch of Loyalty, coming out. It also means it is time, at LONG last, to reveal the cover.

 I had a lot of fun with this cover. Fantasy is easier to do than Steampunk I found. And, you get to involve cloaks, which makes it even better.

 Also, it helped that this picture was taken out in the country, so there was a less likely risk of those involved getting arrested for carrying weapons through a city.

 Once again, I think my photographer did an amazing job and I'm still in awe of his talent. If you wish to see more of his work you can find his website HERE!

 And now I've delayed as long as I can think to. If I wasn't in the middle of a REALLY good book (warning, another book review coming soon) and Doctor Who (for those wondering about my thoughts on Clara, I REALLY like her, I think she is going to be a lot of fun. Review on the second part of series seven also coming soon.) I would think up something clever to delay the cover reveal. But, the book is calling. And I only have a few days of editing freedom and want to finish it before it is over. 
 So, this is the best I can do at the moment.

 And here it is!

 Tada! What do you think?

 Now, in other news. I have a few new Psych quotes from the new season. This one is from one of my newest favourite episodes, when Shawn tries to get his dad and Jules' dad into becoming friends and they end up in Mexico trying to stay alive with gangs chasing them down. 




  1. Oh, lovely colors and bow and everything ... except the way the wind is blowing her cloak and clothing looks a bit weird, but other than that - lovely!

  2. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Epic. I LOVE the green!

  3. I really like that one! Simple and very effective.
    That was a great episode of Psych.

  4. It's a really nice cover!!

  5. It is ethereal and mysterious - intriguing - makes me want to know what's inside. Congrats!

  6. Ooo, I really like this cover!

    And that was such a fun episode of Psych, although I still prefer regular Lassie (unless we're talking about Lassie, Jr. aka the puppy that never really happened, even though he was adorable).

  7. Great looking cover...congrats!

    I also agree with you on Clara....she's going to be a lot of fun and, probably, a bit of a pain in the Doctor's rear :)

  8. Oooh! I like it!!!

    I'll be looking forward to your Doctor Who review!

  9. I like it! Very makes me excited to read it!

    Hehe, I definitely agree with you about Clara. I'll say more about that in my vlog, though! I'm planning on filming it later today if all goes according to plan!

    Decked Out in Ruffles

  10. That's a great cover! I like how you can see the sunlight gleam on it.

  11. Nice. I like the sunlight sort of streaming out of the clouds, and the cloak is very cool. (Lucky person who gets posession of the cloak now, right?) ;)

  12. Beautiful cover!!!! I love it, and I love your new blog look! I'm sorry I haven't been by to visit for a while. Keep me updated on your book.

  13. Ooh, I love it! It's better than what I'd managed so far, so I'm kind of glad it didn't work out. Really, though, that is epic and cool. And very mysterious.

    I'm glad you like Clara! I love her and I think she's adorable. Did you watch Nightmare in Silver? I wish we could have a proper in-depth discussion about it because I have a lot of opinions and I want to know what you thought.

  14. I love it! It reminds me of Robin Hood (BBC)

  15. Oh... that is s highly superiour cover. I love it!

  16. Oh, I REALLY love the cover! I may or may not be bias, considering that I love archery, and that looks just like my own bow :p I like this cover more than the Haphazardly Implausible cover. The colors are much more appealing to my eye as well. (That is a beautiful shade of green!)

  17. Jack. Jack Jack Jack. JACK JACK JACK!! JACK! AHHHH!! Did you see the season finale of Elementary??? JAAAAAAACCCKKKKK!!! AHH! OH BRILLIANT! JACK!

  18. This is such a great cover! I liked the bow very much.

  19. I adore that cover! This is a Fantasy? Cool! So tell me. How much do you like writing Fantasy compared to Steampunk? Fantasy is sort of my niche, all kinds, from high fantasy to sort of simple whimsical fantasy.

    I am going to take an evening one of these days and watch ALL the Doctor Who's I haven't watched. When the Ponds left, I was devastated, and I was NOT interested in Clara at ALL. Now, I'm feeling like I've been able to put the Ponds to "rest" as it were, and give Clara an unbiased chance.

    As an aside, I heard that Matt Smith is going to stay the Doctor through season 8!!! (yay!)
