Another New Cover! :)

Having a good cover is very important for any book, but especially for younger audiences. The cover starts the promise of the author to their reader about what the book is about and what kind of experience than can expect. 

Recently my good friend, Mikey Brooks, revamped the covers on my Ginnie West series and I LOVED them. Then we started talking about putting all three books into an "omnibus" edition.

1) The Scret Sisters Club: A Ginnie West Adventure
2) Trouble Blows West: A Ginnie West Adventure
3) Simply West of Heaven: A Ginnie West Adventure

An omnibus edition will combine all three of my full-length 
middle-grade books into one awesome book-- with an even more "awesome sauce" price. 

Mikey came up with a beautiful new cover. We just can't decide if we should have it  mirror the first 3 books by using the same sky or whether we should show the razzle-dazzle of the 3-in-1 book option by letting it shine in a sunset blaze of glory. 

We thought it would be a good idea to let our friends and readers help us decide. So, here are the choices:

Please record your vote here -------------------------------->

Sunset Sky to "illuminate" the 3-in-1 deal

Classic Sky to go along with the first 3 books:

I will be awarding a FREE e-copy of Trouble Blows West: A Ginnie West Adventure on July 31st to everyone who votes-- so please leave your email in a comment below or send it to me at:


Please type "Ginnie West Cover Poll" in the subject line. Your email address will NOT be sold. :) It might be used to announce the 4th book, "Being West is Best" upon it's release in a few months.

As a BONUS-- if anybody comes up with a better title for the omnibus edition than "The Ginnie West Collection"-- I will send you a free copy of the omnibus when it is officially formatted and ready for sale.

Thanks so much! Laugh lots ... Love much ... Write on! :) 



I voted for the Sunset Sky cover. Both are beautiful, but I love the color combo on the Sunset version! Congrats on getting the omnibus out soon!

I think the sunset stands out more. Love the bright colors!


Hmmm-- we have a pretty strong start for the sunset edition. :) But we have a few days to go.... :)
