Saddles & Sabotage

Saddles & Sabotage has been two and a half years in the making, but I am happy to announce the release date is set for September 21, 2018! Along those same lines, I wanted to show off the new cover.

Big Drum Roll!

I'm waiting, are you doing it?


Here's the Kindle Cover:

The full spread for the paperback version

I love this cover, and let me tell you it happened in spite of me. I had a different idea and I had my claws in deep with it. I had this idea that each of the covers needed to feature some candy to represent Ryder. This cover needed lemon drops ( you'll get that reference later). I was also hooked on a blue knife I wanted to feature. My sister, thank goodness for her, took pity on stressed out younger sister and started using her fantastic talents as a photographer, and sent me this shot. I ate my crow with a large side of humble pie, well after about twenty ways I wanted it changed because I'm a brat like that, and she saved me. My favorite moment was when I told her the first picture looked like it could be the cover to "Basic Equitation 101" and that it needed to be more mysterious and sinister. She wrote back, "I don't know how to make the picture sinister!" But look at that, she did!

I learned once more to get out of the way.  I was hitting my head against the wall trying to make my idea work, and really all I needed to do was cut it. Editing is hard y'all!
