Lokte's cover is finally revealed, and I can honestly say, I'm extremely happy with how it turned out! The fire plus the rose is just what I was looking for to represent my book.

To add on to this momentous occasion, I am also adding a short excerpt from the novel!


     They sat at a little red booth, tucked in a corner against the wall. Marianne wore a pretty, white sundress with a tan belt and wedges, her hair pulled back and cascading into perfect waves down her shoulders. Logan had on a loose, black shirt that formed a V on his chest; the short sleeves showed off his defined biceps, which seemed to flex every time he moved. He finished off the look with a pair of dark wash jeans, black shoes, and a plain black bracelet that clipped on his wrist. Even in his casual apparel, he looked like a rock star.
      They began with small talk. They talked about the weather and how great Amy’s Café was. By the time their food came out, Marianne was more curious about him than ever. She leaned forward with interest.
      “So what is this proposition you were telling me about?” she asked. “You wouldn’t tell me the other day.
     “It is something that needs to be heard . . . in doses.” His eyes met hers, and he smiled. “But before I tell you anything, you have to tell mesomething. What is it in this world that you want most?”
      She stared at him blankly. “I’m sorry?”
      “I know that is a personal question, but it must be answered before I can explain my proposal.     What do you want most in this world?” When she was reluctant to reply, he placed a gentle hand on hers. “You can trust me.”
      She hesitated. She had never been asked that question before. It was like telling a deep, dark secret to a complete stranger.
     But Logan wasn’t a stranger, was he?
      “. . . I want my mother to be cured of cancer. And I want to be a famous actress on Broadway.”
      He nodded. “Well, Marianne, I can give you exactly that.”
      She gazed at him incredulously.“How?”
      “Oh, all will be revealed in good time. But today, I want you to think about that. Think about what it would be like to have all your dreams come true . . . and realize that it’s possible.”
      “. . . What are you?”
      To that, he simply smiled.

Also, a special thanks to these blogs for agreeing to host the cover reveal (Some haven't posted it just yet):
