ECHOES OF US Cover Release!

It’s so strange to think that I’m revealing the cover for Echoes of Us today, the last book in the Hybrid Chronicles. I swear I was just announcing the sale of the series on my blog! Time really flies, huh? 😉 I won’t go on. I know you’re all just here to see the cover, anyway! I’ll just post the official blurb for the book first. And stick around for the rafflecopter contest.

Cover Lust: Classic Covers and Sentimental Favorites

I thought I’d take a different approach to Cover Lust this week and peruse old books. Books whose covers are utterly timeless or books whose covers remind me of the story within.
