UnCover Monthly is Growing Up! #mfrwauthor #featurerevision #update

Osiyo~

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything on the blog other than UnCover Monday each month, with some of those late, and I apologize for the silence. I’ve taken a sabbatical from writing for a bit to get my life and physical health back in order. After two deaths and a severe brain trauma in our families, all within a twelve month period, we’re all recovering well from those shocks. I also returned to day job work after years of being a stay-at-home wife and caregiver for FIL while raising a granddaughter.

Now I’m looking forward to my baby brother’s wedding in May! I’m hoping I’ll be in well enough condition to make it with a smile, since there’s no way I’ll miss the event. In July I injured my shoulder and have been going through Worker’s Comp rigmarole ever since. I’m sure many of you know all about this business. LOL I’m waiting for surgery right now. Let me tell ya’ll, torn rotator cuff and bicep tendons stink. 🙂

I haven’t been able to be on the PC for longer than a few minutes (like thirty at a time and usually no more than an hour in a day) before the pain boots me off. That means no productive writing or blogging, not even with guests, until I’m healed. That also means things seem to take three times longer to get done. *sigh*

BUT–they are getting done!

I decided in November to celebrate UnCover Monday’s (UCM) fourth anniversary by renovating the author-sharing feature. I’m adding a few new surprises and modifying other existing aspects. All-in-all, I’m hoping UCM will be more author friendly. I’m also hoping UCM will garner more free-will attention and become more widely known and used by authors (without my quarterly email requests for covers) to get their names out there.

You see, I came up with UCM because so many authors seem to put more into marketing books one at a time than they do marketing THEMSELVES. I’m a firm believer in author first marketing because, well to put it in basic terms, if there are no authors, there would be no books to market. Why would I put my whole marketing energies into one book that will be obsolete in three to five years (the common term of most contracts)?

Will readers remember ME after that time? Since they own some form of my book…I’m thinking that unless every book I write is outstanding, a redwood above the rest of the forest of books out there, the answer is probably NO.

What can I do to help readers remember me, the writer behind the books? After all, I want readers to buy ALL of MY books; not just this one memorable or cool title, or that one, or one of the next five books down the road. Right? I want readers to go in search of my books because they know MY name and not just one book title. Right?

Do you?

YES!

So UnCover Monday was born. To shout out the writers and, in some cases, the artists behind the books we all love, hate (in a good way, of course 😀 ) or love to hate. It’s to give credit where credit is due– TO THE AUTHOR. Yes, we’re all proud of our babies and we want to share them with the world…but we NEED the world to know who created that baby and all the babies that follow.

And that’s what UCM is for.

To help authors promote themselves through their books, no matter how many they write or how they’re published, whether it’s one or one hundred.

And for that reason alone, UCM does not, and never will, promote cover reveals. UCM promotes AUTHOR reveals! 🙂 And it’s still FREE after four years!!! Will I ever charge for UCM slots? Who knows? Who cares? Right now it’s FREE author  promotion! I invite you to check out the update page for more information, and you can ask questions over there in the comments section, too. 🙂

If you don’t think you have time right now to pop over to the UCM link, you can still submit covers during the revision process. I’m storing every submission by date like I always have, so when UCM re-opens, I’ll have a full line up to begin posting for a few months, hopefully. So, take a moment to click this link and grab your reusable application to submit your covers!

Thank you for stopping by to see what’s going on with UCM!

Is it coincidence or karma that lands a stubborn loner in an animal shelter run by his soulmate? In this sensual contemporary romance novella (the third in the dog-lovers’ “Klein’s K-9s” series), two deserving people discover there’s so much more to life than work.

After a night of raucous partying in a North Carolina town, country music star Ryan “Rowdy” Gates is sentenced to two months of community service at the Jenkins Animal Shelter. The last thing he expects is to bond with the caring shelter workers and nurture an abandoned puppy. The biggest surprise, however, is seeing his secret high-school crush all grown up and in charge of the shelter. Fifteen years ago, she was way out-of-his-league. Is it possible life has handed him a second chance?

Shelter director Cindi Landon has dreamed of Ryan since she was sixteen. How can she supervise his court-ordered work when just being near him makes her body sing. He’s returning to Nashville in sixty days, and she’s not sure which she’d regret more—letting this chance to be with him slip away or starting an affair that could leave her heartbroken. But when she sees him bottle-feeding a tiny Basset Hound puppy named Buddy, Cindi knows it’s already too late to protect her heart.

Cindi and Buddy offer Ryan something he’s never had—a home, a family, and unconditional love.

Annabeth is a hopeless romantic who believes in soul mates. In fact, she’s been writing to hers each year on her birthday since she was 16.

Now, at 34, she’s still holding out hope of finding Mr. Right even though he’d be fighting an uphill battle to gain her trust, thanks to a traumatic experience years before that’s left her unable to commit.

When Annabeth meets a handsome literature professor named Alex on her 34th birthday, she thinks her quest may finally be at an end. Things don’t quite go as planned, so Annabeth resolves to do everything she can over the next year to find the unknown recipient of her letters.  But blind dates, Meetup events and online singles sites have nothing on what fate has in store for her when a co-worker unexpectedly quits and Annabeth finds herself working in close quarters with both Alex and her long ago ex, Nick. Fighting her attraction to one and loathing for the other, Annabeth is forced to face all of her old insecurities while keeping an eye on a scheming frienemy who may derail her hopes and dreams.

Written in the tradition of Bridget Jones’ Diary, You’ve Got Mail, and French Kiss, it shows that love on the sweet side can exist for the modern girl, if only she’s willing to trust herself and search hard enough. Been Searching for You was the winner of the 2015 Romance Writers of America Great Expectations and Golden Rose contests.

A cold stone heart breaks more easily than it beats. Than it loves.

Damien was a loyal warrior, killed in battle in 1203. Because of his true heart, he was given the option to pass on to his eternal reward or exist in another state of being as a protector… until the time came when he could resume living the life he’d been cheated of. 

A soldier by nature, he chose the latter. Then he waited centuries—as a gargoyle—growing increasingly bitter about his choice. Then he sees her.

Rina is a hard worker and loyal friend. She just has the worst luck. One night, after saving her best friend from a violent assault, she finds herself at the attacker’s mercy. Then, out of nowhere, a savior comes and rescues her.

With only an angel to guide him, Damien must make the right choices to win Rina’s heart, or be forever damned as a grotesque mockery of the guardian he once was.

Becoming smitten with the handsome investigator, Detective Patrick Fischer, is a serious complication given his assignment to her brother’s case. Barbara senses there is something far deeper—and perhaps much older—than the surface attraction between them. Could that be why she’s visited by a mysterious woman named Emma in her dreams? Could past life regression tie all the seemingly unconnected events together?

Barbara and Patrick must overcome heartache to find the truth to save Colin, and perhaps themselves.

Scarred by years of war and turmoil, Jessica flees Spain for the peace of England with her orphaned nephew. There she can honour her vow to hide the boy from his father’s powerful family. Cloaked with an icy control, Jessica’s resolve to protect him, and her battered heart, is unwavering—no matter how tempted she is to trust the dangerously attractive lord who comes searching.

Now, tied by the silken threads of duty and love, they must find a path that frees them from the bonds of the past.

Lady Beatrice Bordel blames herself for the riding accident that cost her father his life when she was a child. Tragedy strikes again when her mother and grandfather die on the same day, leaving her homeless. The young woman decides to travel to visit her grandfather’s closest friend, hoping she can use her domestic skills and lute-playing talent to find a permanent place in his household. Barely into her journey, a band of highwaymen accosts Beatrice and her sole servant. All seems lost—until Raynor Le Roux arrives.

As a knight of the realm, the code of chivalry guides Raynor’s life. While returning to his family’s home after many months absence, he rescues Beatrice, who tells a white lie to this handsome stranger. Raynor takes her to safety at Ashcroft, but his home has changed during his time away. No longer a thriving estate, Ashcroft has fallen into disrepair because his brother Peter is no longer interested in its welfare after his wife’s untimely death. Raynor determines to restore his home before he escorts Beatrice north so she may unite with the man he believes is her betrothed.

The couple’s growing attraction turns to love, but Beatrice’s dishonesty stands between her and Raynor’s happiness. Will she finally tell him the truth—and hope he forgives her deception—or will it be too late?

Haunted by the memory of her dead mate and child, Melissa can’t escape her past or her future. On the run from her controlling master, she didn’t intend to get captured by the enemy, or be rescued by a brooding, handsome king. When she succumbs to her need for a male’s blood and drinks from the honorable king, she can’t ignore the compelling desire he ignites in her soul.

UnCover Mondays on The Ranch!!!

Osiyo~

 

It’s February already, the month dedicated to love and romance. Here on the Ranch it’s time again for gorgeous covers to take the spotlight in the round pen. Enjoy more awesome cover art by the incredible authors, publishers and artists who made them possible for you to gaze upon each month.

It would be great if you leave a comment letting everyone know what you think about them and maybe even check out a few author links to meet those behind the books. Or just say hi. Don’t forget to tell your friends to stop by so they can appreciate some greatness, or get in on the fun, too!

This feature is only to highlight the authors and artists (though if you see one you want to buy I’m sure the authors won’t mind 😆 ). Enjoy this months’ covers to ogle and explore. If there is one provided, you can follow the artist links by clicking on the name, if there’s an artist link provided, to learn more about the amazing creators of these beautiful covers.

There’s a heat level rating for covers, one through four scale, for your benefit. You should never see a *5* rating on the Ranch since I don’t feature anything erotic in nature. If there’s anything else you’d like to know about covers being revealed here, please don’t hesitate to let me know. You can leave it either in a comment or by my contact page https://calisarhose.com/say-hey/. 🙂

Annalise Gallagher wanted Elijah Burleigh. Plain and simple. She’d watched him from afar for months, her friends called her ‘his own personal stalker’, and then she made a wish on a magic pendant for a full-body makeover. Transformed into the gorgeous knockout she’d always wanted to be, she asked Elijah out on a date and wore a haute couture gown straight from Paris to his friend’s wedding. 
With just twenty-four hours on the clock, her enchanted night faded into the morning hours and everything crashed down around her. Annalise harbored a shameful secret and Elijah demanded the truth with the veil of magic gone. 
The truth, however, could destroy her fragile confidence and push him away forever.

Heat Level: 1-sweet

Release date: 2013

Headstrong. Rachel Kinsey fits the description perfectly. The divorced soccer mom may be ditzy and as sympathetic to losers as a charity, but she knows what she wants. A man completely different from her unreliable ex-husband and the outrageous characters she’s usually doomed to attract.

 Enter Jim Landers, the ideal candidate. An accidental encounter introduces her to the tall, dark attorney who loves soccer and kids. The only problem? He’s not prepared for a ready-made family and a woman as comfortable as a beloved sweater rather than a beauty queen. A woman whose kindness, enthusiasm for life, and unguarded honesty may disturb a man who values order, perfection, and serenity. Jim turns to the flawless yet distant Donna as a substitute for Rachel.

 She should show him how much he means to her, but rejection from an absent father and a capricious ex-husband may have ruined Rachel’s ability to connect to Jim. Will she risk herself, her son and their future by revealing how much Jim means to her?

 A touching, tender tale full of gentle humor, about thinking too much and feeling too little. Rachel must learn to be heart-strong in order to find her soul mate.
