Stay in Touch Triple Cover Reveal!

Stay in Touch Books 2-4 (Covers by Berto Designs)

It’s cover reveal day for the rest of the books in my Stay in Touch series! I’m also dropping the blurb for the next book, Touch of Heartache. Remember that these books take place concurrently and can be read in any order!

Title: Touch of Heartache

Series: Stay in Touch (Book 2)

Author: Joy Penny

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Publication Date: 12/5/2017

Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expected.

Just weeks before graduating, Lilac Townsend throws away her elementary school teacher job offer in Minnesota to work in Florida at the official resort of her favorite vacation spot, Tildy World. Pushing down all second thoughts, she fills her mind with visions of sunny beaches and Tildy Tapir, the cartoon character who always promised to make her childhood dreams come true. Unfortunately, between a sleazy boss and a community college student in a character suit who manages to fray her last nerve, Lilac soon learns that working behind the scenes at the park is hardly “happily ever after.”

Nolan Gregosky had plans after graduating high school a few years back: go to college, join a fraternity, and make some memories before earning a degree. Instead, tragedy sidelined those dreams, but his job posing for pictures with drooling, snot-nosed kids as Silly Sandgrouse gives him a chance to unload some pent-up energy. When the stunning but uptight new assistant manager at the resort proves a distraction in more ways than one, Nolan realizes it’s up to him to show her what it means to eat, live, and breathe life at the park.

A relationship at this unsteady stage of their lives might not be the brightest idea for either of them, but it’s hard to ignore that tingling sensation whenever the paths of this plush-suit beast and naïve beauty collide.

A Love for the Pages Gets a New Cover!

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?

Austen in August — and a Book Sale!

Thanks to a book blogger friend, I stumbled on The Book Rat’s Austen in August annual celebration. Almost half a month of discussing Austen and how her works have impacted our lives? Sign me up! 🙂 And I did sign up–you’ll see a guest post from me sometime during the celebration.

A Love for the Pages is partially an homage to Pride and Prejudice, and like June in my novel, I adore all of Jane Austen’s works. In honor of the event, the e-book version of A Love for the Pages will be only 99 cents until the end of the month!
