Crossfire Cover

It's here! I know this book isn't scheduled to come out until January, but one of the wonderful editors at my publisher (Covenant) sent me the cover image for Crossfire today and I thought I would share.
This is the third book in my Saint Squad series, although I will admit that I keep getting confused which book is which. The first two are easy enough to keep straight, but I was doing the final proofs for Crossfire at the same time I was doing the first bit of editing for the next book, Backlash. That and the fact that the timelines for the two books overlap a bit have definitely forced me to stay on my toes.
With Crossfire ready for print and Backlash ready for editing, I've turned my attention to the fifth book in the series I have been diligently working on it since school started two weeks ago. Unfortunately, I managed to write the first fifty pages only to decide that I didn't like it at all. I figure that if I'm not excited to get up in the morning to write it, no one is going to find themselves staying up all night to read it. So I went back to page one, literally. And I'm glad I did. I only have the first fourteen pages written, but already I like the way it's going. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will keep on moving!

Great cover!

I totally agree that if I'm not passionate about telling a story, I doubt that people would be passionate about reading it. I mean, yeah, sometimes writing is hard, but if there's just no joy in this story, why would people be drawn to it.

Good luck with the next iteration!

The cover looks amazing! Who does the design for these covers?
I am so for crossfire to come out! I do have a question...who is BACKLASH about?

Thanks everyone!

Lauren -- I'm not sure who designs the covers except that it's someone with Covenant or someone they contract out to. Either way, I've been really lucky in that department.

As for Backlash, it is Kel's story. I'm still trying to figure out how to describe that one without including too many spoilers. :)

I went on line to buy all the books and I found Crossfire for sell. I bought it but now I see it is not out until Jan. 2010. It is the exact cover you have on your website. I am so confused. Are there a few stors selling it already? I love all the book and cant wait to own my own.
