New book, new cover... Hot HERO!!

So am just back from Ireland where I did a day's work on the new Sean Penn movie as an extra... Yes, really. How glamorous am I?? Actually it wasn't that glamorous at all, it was exceptionally hard work, getting up at the crack of dawn, filming in a crowded shopping centre and spending large amounts of time sitting around waiting to be used. But still, I can't wait to see the movie now which looks like another Sean corker....

but now to the real reason I have slipped out of the cave, was just flicking thru Amazon and spotted the cover for my new book... The one about the surfer and the beach lifeguard, you remember. All very exciting this and long awaited as it's one of the brand new, no more embarassment reading it on the tube covers from M&B.... So, drum roll please. Here it is.



Love the dramatic, windswept Cornish coastline and Rye, my windswept hero, fits the description perfectly. Moody and magnificent. Love it. Surf, Sea and a Sexy Stranger is listed as a December release, but for any eager beavers it's actually hitting shelves on November 17th as part of cycle one (whatever the heck that means, still haven't got my head around this new way of doing things. Anyway, will be giving away copies left, right and centre on my blog, at the PHS, etc and doing a sneak peak on my website very shortly.

Right, back to the cave to bash Cal and Ruby's story into shape. Deadline is looming and my hero and heroine are not cooperating (with me that is, they're cooperating rather too much with each other).

WOWSERS - it is BEAUTIFUL! I think it's my fave so far of all the new covers I've seen. The art department at M&B should be LOUD and PROUD!

Ooh and being an extra on a movie sounds very fun! I've been an extra once too - but it was only on a boring bank ad and I never actually saw it on tv :)

Wow Heidi, hawwwwt cover! Love it :) And how exciting about being an extra (waiting endlessly aside). Did you get to see Sean?

Lacey Devlin said...

Gorgeous cover! Can't wait for that sneak peek :)

Janette Radevski said...

Hot alright! Love the new covers (and can I say titles?)

Hey guys!

First off, yes, I did get to see Sean. Even though he was almost unrecognisable. Shouldn't really say anymore in the interests of discretion but it looks like a really interesting movie. But then, Sean's always compelling to watch.

So glad you all like the new cover. And yeah, can break my silence on this now and say I LOVE the new covers and the less purple titles. Think the new marketing direction is going to get M&B a whole new raft of readers while at the same time having enough of the world-renowned M&B glamour to keep current readers happy. A tough balancing act but I think they've totally pulled it off.

OK, back to my current WIP. Arghhh!

That's so neat! My husband signed up to be an extra in the remake of Footloose that's shooting on our tiny town this month. We should hear later this month if he made the cut. I told him he probably would. Ever movie needs the token tall guy, and he was taller than anyone else that showed up. :D

That is one HOT hero.

I'm out in the same month as you and my cover features the heroine more than the hero.

Heidi said...

Alice, wishing your husband the best of luck... But if he does get picked tell him to wear comfortable shoes!!

And Nic, had a quick peek at Wild Nights with her Wicked Boss and thought the cover uber glamourous and there's more than enough of the hero in that picture to tickle my fancy (and I few other things that come to mind... LOL)
