Cover Reveal: The Other Woman
Here it is... the moment of truth!
After getting such wonderful feedback on different cover options for my novel from all of you in November 2014 (take a look at what the options were HERE), I finally decided on one set image and had the book cover designed and the pages bound.
"The truly good stories in life are the one's where the characters go through a certain amount of turmoil and pain.
A story becomes amazing when said characters overcome all that they have had to go through.
All that's left is the ending... Good or bad?
In our situation, we have no idea how it will end. I'm really hoping for a great ending, but in the meantime, we just need to keep writing.
The story needs to have pain and conflict.
There are still so many pages to go until we see the end."
Tabitha's life was at a standstill. The sun, surfing, photography and driving through the same streets every day had gotten her stuck in a rut.
When she met Ezra, she had no idea that her life was about to be permanently altered. But Ezra had a secret and Tabitha's conditioned life was about to fall apart.
She was about to become...
The Other Woman.
The above is the blurb on the back of my second novel, The Other Woman.
I still just can't believe it's done... well, almost done.
Now that I have finished writing the actual book, I had it put into book form so that I could read it and let my family read it to help me pick up on any little gremlins lurking between the pages... you know, like typos (shudder!) or grammatical errors (gasp!). It's pretty much every writers nightmare... that's why we hire editors. But nothing can be perfect. I see books with spelling errors in them that were published by Penguin for goodness sake! We're only human.
But before I readily distribute this pride and joy of mine around the globe like I did the first one, I wanted to give it one final bit of polishing... which is what I am doing right now.
And so begins the 5am alarm tones, the excessive coffee intake and annoying eyebrow twitch that I just can't shake as I obsessively edit my book - slowly turning it into something beautiful.
I have such high hopes for this novel - it's got such a strong back-bone of a story-line, characters you just can't help but fall in love with, romance, turmoil, drama, drugs and pain. It's got depth and meaning, quotes from various ancient scriptures and poets. It's got messages and lessons, advice and wisdom.
So now with two novels under my belt.... what else is there to do but start a third?!
