Rise Again Warrior Make Over #2

Yep, the Rise Again Warrior series got another cover make over. Why? Well, because I’m really hard to please sometimes.

Nah, not really, but okay, maybe.

The truth is that while I loved the first covers, they didn’t fit the genre I wanted them in. The second batch of covers that I did last month, well they were better, but they still didn’t hit my heart when I looked at them.

Now this third batch has been under design for a couple of weeks and we have tried a whole lot of designs, a whole lot of male models to get the right look.

Then, I took two different versions, one dark, one brighter, and put them up to vote with some select readers who love the series. The brighter covers won the majority of the votes.

I think I might be happy enough with these that I’ll leave them alone for a while and let you all enjoy the books!

RAW gets a Makeover!

After a lot of thought, and quite a few polls to see what readers thing, I have decided to change the cover of the Rise Again Warrior Series.

As this series could fall into two different genres, Romance & Women’s Fiction, it’s also Military Fiction and Family and Relationships. So, finding the right cover to hit all those genres can be difficult. I’m hoping that everyone loves the new covers that will be rolling out over the next couple of weeks.

With each main military character, we have the shadow of the warrior they used to believe they were. These stories are about reclaiming those warriors and helping them find a new normal now that their military careers are over.

The Music behind Riley

I’m a huge music person–like I always have music playing. I don’t just stick to one genre either. Some days the classic rock is kicking my speakers, or I break out the vinyl and listen to a few of my dad’s albums, and some days I every have classic piano on. It all depends on what I’m doing and just how high my blood pressure is that day.

Recently I finished writing and editing Riley, Loving a Young Series, Book 4, and I came across a song that was so fitting for Ethan. Here’s the book blurb:

Riley is always the life of the party, and it’s Ethan that is there to pick her up and keep her together. He knows her almost as well as she knows herself, and he knows she will never love him as he does her.

Now Ethan wants more out of life and love, but Riley denies her feelings and insists they are just friends with benefits. When a training opportunity comes up that will get Ethan out of town for months, he jumps on it. It’s the only way to get over Riley and move on.

With Ethan gone and a new guy in her life, Riley finds herself dealing with several emotional issues without the help of her best friend. A family emergency has Ethan feeling lost without Riley there to lean on, but he refuses to go to her and seeks solace with another. Will Riley make the right choices, and finally, admit how she feels, or will she find herself alone and falling further down the rabbit hole.

When I started writing this book, I came across the song, “I’m Never Getting Over You” by Gone West. It hit me square in the chest as I could see Ethan saying these things, and Riley rebuking him. Check out the music video.
