New cover design and two freebies

Duck and Dive (Rise and Shine #1) cover refresh

That’s right folks! Duck and Dive has had a facelift 😍 Now everyone knows what they’re in for at a glance i.e. a light-hearted, contemporary tale with gays, romance, and comedy.

Duck and Dive is a gay romantic comedy novella about coming out and failing spectacularly. If you haven’t read it yet, check out the first chapter here for free, or grab yourself a copy now from your Amazon store: 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 🇨🇦 🇦🇺 (🇳🇿) 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 🇪🇸 🇮🇹 🇳🇱 🇯🇵 🇧🇷 🇲🇽 🇮🇳

Or, if you’re more interested in seeing the original cover design, and the comparison titles that informed this redesign, check out this blog post from last month. With this information, I surveyed my Facebook followers, Twitter followers, mailing list subscribers, and Facebook author groups. The general consensus was that the redesigned cover looked good, fitted well with other similar titles, and you had an idea what they were about from the off.

The cover of Slip and Slide (Rise and Shine #2) also got some TLC, keeping it consistent with Duck and Dive‘s new design. The original design for Over and Out (Rise and Shine #3) was already part way down this road, and as it was only released a couple months ago, I’ve decided to keep the design 🤷‍♀️ It’s not obviously gay, but still includes other elements that mark it as a light-hearted, contemporary tale. Besides, if you’ve read the first two books, you already know what you’re getting yourself into in the third 😉 Drop me a message to let you know what you think.

The freebies!

All right bargain hunters / cheap skates, here they are 😆 One sweet story with romance at the forefront, and one serious scifi with romance simmering under the surface.

I’ve hooked up with these authors to help promote each others’ books. I’m keen to give these stories a shot, and hope you will too. If you do, let me know how you enjoy them and if you’re keen for more freebies!

Like You a Latte

Like you a Latte, by F.N. Manning

He’s book smart. When it comes to matters of the heart, he’s got a lot to learn.

“Sugary and sweet, Like You a Latte is a YA gay romance […] about falling in love, taking chances, and enjoying the journey on the way to the destination.”

A Post Apocalyptic Thriller
Lee Quail

Gideon, by Lee Quail

It’s the year 2400. Toba has erupted and plunges the earth into a cold, dark volcanic winter. But there is something more sinister in the air.

Gideon must choose: lose destructive weapons to those who’d decimate humanity, or lose the man he loves.
