Cover Reveal! My Christmas Story, “Grumble Monkey & the Dept. Store Elf”

Is there anyway I could be happier with my new cover? I don’t think so! OMG!

It was created by the loverly and talented Paul Richmond and it in now way could convey my story any more than it already does. I am SO happy! Soo soooooo soooooooo happy!

Life is good!

And just wait to you read this story! You are going to love it!

Here is the blurb: Kit Jefferies, a part-time department store Christmas elf, is an artist who loves life and his family. Unfortunately, his car dies at a rest stop in the middle of nowhere as he is heading home for Christmas. Enter Nick St. George.

Nick is a very unhappy man—he’s achieved his professional goals only to find the rest of his life bleak and empty. Deciding there was only one way to make everything right, he is on his way to San Francisco on a dark mission, and even the horrible sleet storm that blocked his path won’t deter him. That’s when he found Kit.

At first, Nick is pretty sure rescuing Kit was a big mistake. Kit’s personality is just too, well, effervescent. But as the miles go by, Kit begins to bring light to his dark heart. It might even be bright enough to illuminate a Christmas miracle.

I hope you will enjoy it and I will let you know when it is available!


Cover For “All Alone in a Sea of Romance” Has Been Released!

Cover For “All Alone in a Sea of Romance” Has Been Released!

So it came today and it is by the wondrous and sweet Paul Richmond. I am so happy.

A week or so ago he sent me four covers and we tweaked and narrowed them down and then over the holiday weekend (while I was camping) three covers arrived and we narrowed and tweaked and this is it!

Paul was so kind to make a few little changes and I have something I am very happy with.

Not only are the colors just gorgeous and eye-catching, but I got to pick out the cover model! I found someone perfect and they used him!

So he actually looks like how I imagined him to be, or awfully damned close!

I could not be happier!

And here is the final (at last) blurb for my novel (to be released in October)…

I’m Jude Parks, writer of gay romances. Even though I’m good at what I do, the irony is that I haven’t exactly been lucky in love. My friend Jeannie says it’s because I settle for Mr. Right Now instead of holding out for Mr. Forever. I say I’d rather regret what I have done than what I haven’t.

I only came to Romantic Voyages, the biggest romance convention in the country, for business. Yet in no time I got mixed up with a gorgeous cover model, weeping artists, drag queens, and crazy housewives—and became the prime suspect in a murder investigation. Well, they say any press is good press.

Maybe I should’ve stayed home. But then I never would’ve met Tommy Smith, the craziest, most outrageous, silly, sexy man I’ve ever known—a man who makes me wonder if it may be worth holding out for Mr. Forever. A man who might turn my rotten luck around. But only if we survive the weekend and I clear my name….

Happy Day!


Desert Crossing Cover – Part Three; This is It!!

Something wonderful happened last night! I got the cover for Desert Crossing and I am so excited I was and am just about brought to tears.

It is simply amazing.

It is gorgeous.

If a cover sells a book, I am going to sell a million copies.


I can’t believe how perfect this cover is. It is RIGHT out of the story. It is exactly what I wanted and more! The characters look right. The scene looks right. The cover tells the story of how the characters meet, and it does it on so many levels!

I just could not possibly be happier!

And if you want to see how REALLY gorgeous the cover is, then click on the picture down below to make it larger so you can see details… I love it!

The story is now on the “Coming Soon” list from Dreamspinner Press and you can find it by clicking Right Here.

And this is just the beginning!

If this is the cover for a novella, which my publisher must believe in to invest so much in it, just think of when I send them my novel. And they are going to LOVE it!

But first, to finish my dude ranch story! I am having a wonderful time writing this new one!!

Desert Crossing Cover – Part Two

So last night I got the Paul Richmond cover sketch for Desert Crossing and I am stunned.

I wish I could share it with you, but alas, at this time I am not allowed.

Needless to say it is an author’s dream. It is a scene right out of the story, near the beginning, and it is gorgeous.

I had one or two tiny little requests, and qualified them by the fact that I knew an artist knew better and if he wanted to ignore me, I was happy.

I have been very blessed with my covers and this is just another one.

It made me write more of my new story. For dreams of another wonderful cover!

I will post the cover soon!

Paul Richmond to Paint New Cover!!

I got some amazing news the other day. The cover to my story Desert Crossing will be done by Paul Richmond! I am still stunned and amazed.

I’ve even exchanged an email or two with him and he is open to all kinds of input.

I am a big fan of his work and you should check out his website. He has actually done the “cover” work for two of the daily dose projects I’ve been a part of; Naughty or Nice and Midsummer’s Nightmare. Both of those pieces are spectacular!

I got all kinds of input and sometime soon I will get a sketch to comment on. He recommended that I send all my thoughts through Dreamspinner (I am sure it is for some kind of legal and editorial reasons), but he has my email address for more immediate concerns.

I will want to buy a print! I know I won’t be able to afford the original, but I can’t wait to see it. I can’t imagine that I will be disappointed. I have bought a number of books just because he did the cover. If covers sell books, his will sell Desert Crossing!

And since it is a Bittersweet Dreams novella, it’s need the help! LOL!
Bittersweet Dreams stories are the ones that have “nontraditional endings. It’s an unfortunate truth: love doesn’t always conquer all. Regardless of its strength, sometimes fate intervenes, tragedy strikes, or forces conspire against it. These stories of romance do not offer a traditional happy ending, but the strong and enduring love will still touch your heart and maybe move you to tears.”

I will tell you all that eventually, both characters (sequels in my head) have very very happy endings!

Check out Paul Richmond! His website is here: http://www.paulrichmondstudio.com/

Make sure you go to the section on “Printed Works” under his “Galleries” category. I just can’t wait! I get so excited I don’t know what to do!
