I’m excited to share this beautiful cover for the first book in my Stay in Touch series, TOUCH OF FONDNESS! This design was crafted by the talented Berto Designs.
The book, published by Snowy Wings Publishing, is releasing May 2nd. You can pre-order the e-book (a Kindle exclusive) for just 99¢. The price goes up May 9th! There will be a paperback edition available more widely, but you can’t pre-order it yet.
It seems like once a year I give A Love for the Pages a makeover to help it reach audiences, and apparently I do! I hope this is the final cover. This one focuses better on the couple and the romance than previous ones. Let me know what you think!
After spending almost two years widely available on different platforms, I’ve decided to scale back the e-book version of A Love for the Pages so it can be available to read for free via Kindle Unlimited. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, read it today! Click here to read!
Kiss. Marry. Kill. Nineteen-year-old June Eyermann has always known exactly which of her favorite Byronic heroes goes where. She’d kiss moody and possessive Rochester from Jane Eyre and marry prideful but repentant Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, leaving obsessive and spiteful Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights to be chucked off a cliff—but no. She couldn’t leave any of her heroes behind. She lives for her favorite fictional worlds.
But June is about to get a serious wake up call when she returns home for the summer after her college freshman year. Stuck somewhere between feeling like a kid again under her parents’ roof and being forced to start acting like an adult with worries about her future career, June looks at the library volunteer position offered to her as a way to keep her sanity for the next few months before she can go back to school.
What June doesn’t expect to find at the library is her favorite romantic heroes brought to life—all in the same man. Obstinate, prideful and even a bit rude, Everett Rockford shouldn’t exactly be “dating material,” even if June’s heart rate accelerates whenever she’s near him. But after discovering his enigmatic past and witnessing a few fiery moments of tenderness, June can’t help but see Rochester, Darcy and even Heathcliff in Everett. If she’s going to make it through the summer without becoming a tragic heroine in her own story, she has to separate the man from the ideals of fiction in her head. Because if there’s one thing she knows about Byronic love stories, it’s that they don’t always end happily ever after.
Hi, there! Welcome to my first of many reviews for the day! ❤ It’s a pleasure to say that all my book reviews today were very pleasant reads that warmed my heart ❤
Our first star is a book I received from the author herself in exchange for an honest review: A Love for the Pages, from adorable Joy Penny! Thanks so much for trusting me with your work, darling! I loved your book so much ❤
June Eyermann is back to her small town life after her fist year at college and she couldn’t be more disappointed. Her best friend, Deana, doesn’t speak with her for months, her classes and subjects suck hard, she had to deal with the fact that her ex-sort-of-boyfriend is her younger brother best friend. Oh, and on top of all that? June better get a job real…

As soon as I saw the image used on the cover for A Love for the Pages, I knew it was the perfect one. (I even wrote a scene to go along with it that’s probably my favorite.) However, the overall presentation of the image left a bit to be desired. I decided that for 2016, A Love for the Pages will get a new cover that still makes use of that same image but gives it a little more pizazz. It may take a bit for the online stores to update their listings, and I need to do some extra work to get the paperback to match, but what do you think?
