I have gorgeous new cover art

I have gorgeous new cover art created by Jordan Castillo Price for Fall Into the Sun. Feast your eyes! Here is the blurb:

They should have spent the past 22 years together, but life took some unexpected turns for Bobby Gallegos and Alejo Sandoval. Heartbreak and rejection can harden the hearts of two passionate, stubborn men. One, deeply devout, wanted to attend college. One, who perfected a tough act to deceive his brothers, might have followed his dad to prison. Now, at 40 years old, they maintain a long-distance relationship as sex buddies, who don't quite trust each other.

Their lives have sharply diverged. One is now divorced with two teenagers, who bring him joy and despair. One has just had a near-death experience on the job. When Bobby returns to Albuquerque, he will use sex, persuasion, and memories of their shared past to try to convince Alejo to take a chance on him and reach for the future that they were meant to share together.

[Author note: I will be self-publishing Fall Into the Sun as a novella at somewhere between 30,000 and 40,000 words total to be priced at $2.99. It is a contemporary romance told in two alternating third-person viewpoints. Excerpt coming soon.]

  3. Absolutely gorgeous cover! And... you wanna do a prerelease promo/giveaway for it? (If we've already had this conversation, humor me...) :D

  4. Hi, Chris! Thank you! I would absolutely like to do a prelease promo giveaway (we haven't had this conversation yet, and I'm glad you brought it up). I will definitely approach you on this as I get closer to release date. :)

  5. Awesome! And I can do a big-ass giveaway in that there is no limit on "author copies" to give away when I'm selfpublishing!

  6. Whoo, there it is, looking all official! (I see it in the sidebar but not in the post--there's an exclamation point icon in the post as if the file's not there...just some temporary glitch, I'm sure.)

    I was so happy to find guys that actually looked like your guys. I think covers are more important than most publishers realize.

  7. That's an awesome cover, Jordan, and I'm not tracking either of those guys. ;)

    I agree about the cover art. I hate that "poser" cover art and avoid books that have it on their covers.

  8. Hi, Jordan and Chris! Oops, I think I made a mistake with posting but it should be corrected now. I'm with you both on cover art. It's CRUCIAL to sales! I get depressed when I see uninspired cover art. I'm so pleased, Jordan, that you found guys that looked like my guys were meant to look!

  9. I was the first one to license the shot of the guy in the foreground, so there's no other usage to track! (yay!)

  12. Hi, KZ! Cover art is so important, and your books have had some of the best I've ever seen. :D

  13. It's because of the sacrifices she offers up. Best not to ask for details, Val! ;)

  14. Ha, ha! So THAT's where those ceremonial magick details came from in Abercrombie Zombie!
