Cover Reveal & #FridayFun!

Today's post has a little bit of everything. My friend Wren Michaels just got the cover art for her new novella, and it's SO cool! She was gracious enough to share it with me, and I must say it does justice to her story. I had the chance to read Unbearable a couple months ago, and loved it. So this is all about the win! Jump HERE to add Unbearable to your "want to read" shelf on Goodreads.


Rose Red will stop at nothing to protect her sister, Snow White, from suffering the same fate as their mother. She vows to kill Hestor, the evil dwarf sorcerer responsible for her death. But a twist of fate lands her on the bottom of a riverbed, and her life in the hands of a mysterious stranger.

Marcus is a beast of a man. He is a bear by day, man by night, thanks to a curse from the evil Hestor. But when he rescues Rose from an icy grave, he unleashes the real animal. Falling for her is dangerous enough, as he must protect the secret of his curse. But she may just be the key to getting his kingdom back as she breaks one spell and puts him under another.


Wren Michaels hails from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where beer and cheese are their own food groups. But then a cowboy swept her off her feet and carried her away below the Mason-Dixon line where she promptly lost all tolerance for snow and cold. They decided they’d make beautiful babies together and so they did. And they got it right on the first try. Now Wren lives happily ever after in the real world and in the worlds of her making, where she creates book boyfriends for the masses to crave.

My own work is going well. I'm following along my business plan, keeping up with three blog posts and about 4k words a week. My agent & I are prepping Aqua Follies to be released into the wild - or at least sent out on submission - and I have a cunning plan for the weekend involving my teenagers, my front garden, and a bunch of pruning tools. 

Life could be a lot worse!

And, in honor of a certain football game that's going to be played on Sunday, I thought I'd throw this in so you can see where my loyalties lie. Go Seahawks!



  1. Can't wait for Unbearable!
    Good luck with Aqua Follies and your gardening endeavours. :) Your commitment to your business plan is inspiring! Wow! xo
    In gratitude,

  2. Thanks for having me on, Liv! And even though your Dirty Birds beat my Packers, I still adore ya. Good luck with Aqua Follies and as always, you're an inspiration in our writing community. Thanks for all you do!

  3. Thanks to both of you for the positive vibes! And Wren, all the best with your release.

  4. Gorgeous cover! Good luck with Unbearable!

    Enjoy your pruning in the garden. I'll be shoveling - snowing today and more due Sunday night into Monday. My gardening will have to wait to maybe -
    April, LOL

  5. I love the cover! So beautiful! Good luck, Liv!

  6. We're having our annual tease week, Deb. The last couple days the temperature has been around 60, in the afternoon at least, but since I never cleaned up last fall, there's a bit of work to be done.
    & Thank you, too, Niki!

  7. Love the cover! Having read the story, I think it's perfect!
