Coming Closer - Cover Reveal and Blurb!

This post is pre-scheduled because I am hopefully at the eye doctor today having the shield taken off my eye (assuming I haven't taken it off myself in the a.m. out of impatience) and finding out that that I can see more than 3 inches in front of my face.

Here's the finished cover and probably final blurb for Coming Apart, the second book in my Ava & Claire series. It's available for pre-order now, and I'm about 50% done with the edits. Then I'll let it rest for a week or two, so I can start drafting book 3 and then go back and look at it with fresh eyes to catch the last repetitive words and pesky typos.

I love this cover possibly even more than the first one. It's another family photo - my great-aunt Margaret again, slightly younger, but in a dress that absolutely fits the arc of Ava's story as a seamstress in Philadelphia during the 1930s.

What do you think of the blurb? It's really difficult to boil down two entire stories into a few paragraphs, but I've done my best.

Blurb sound good. The cover is lovely.

I can’t wait to read the sequel and it is on order (first time ever doing that) from my local Amazon affilliate. Wishing you a fabulous New Year!

Abbey, thank you SO much! I was never one to pre-order before I started publishing, but I realize that (a) pre-orders count for a lot with Amazon, and (b) I'm only capable of remembering so much, and I don't want to forget about a book I wanted.
