I have a cover!!! I actually had a cover yesterday, and I was over at Ofelia Gränd’s blog and showed it off, but since it was release day for Hop Hop, Carrot Top, I figured I’d wait a day before I posted it here.
Though I totally cheated and uploaded it to the book page – look how pretty Be Still, My Heart is next to Hop Hop, Carrot Top‘s cover. Or wait! Don’t go there yet. First, read on, so you get to see it below 😀
Be Still, My Heart is about Dimitri Petrov and Elian Hubert. Dimitri is a military vet who suffers from PTSD. He wants to isolate himself, but Irina, his sister, won’t let him. Instead, she has him working at the front desk at her dating agency.
One day, Elian storms in, asking Dimitri to fix a date for him for a Valentine dinner he’s supposed to attend. Dimitri tries telling him they’re not that kind of place.
If you want to read an excerpt, click here, but now, let’s have a look at the cover!
Seeing it appear in my inbox made me so happy. It matches the cover of Hop Hop, Carrot Top, and I had not asked for that. So cool! Now I can’t wait to see the covers for There Will Be Aliens and Blown Away LOL.
But one thing at the time. Are you ready?
Here it comes!
Four years ago, Dimitri Petrov had his leg blown off by a landmine while in military service. Suffering from PTSD, he doesn’t do crowds, and he doesn’t do people. If he had his way, he’d never leave his house at all. Dimitri’s sister, Irina, runs a dating agency, and despite that it would be better for business if they had a pretty woman working the front desk, Irina insists Dimitri’s the man for the job.
In a whirlwind of pink shirts, flapping hands, and outrageous flirting enters Elian Hubert. Elian needs a date. Invited to speak on love through time in fiction at a Valentine dinner, there is no way he’s showing up alone. When Dimitri tells him The Single Pursuit is unable to help on such short notice, Elian suggests Dimitri be his date.
Dimitri doesn’t do dates, and he doesn’t do dinners, but Elian’s made him happier in the last few minutes than anyone’s been able to do in years. He might not do Valentine’s, and he might not do gatherings, but maybe he can do Elian… a favor and accompany him to his presentation? If things go too badly, he can always hide behind a curtain and pretend he’s somewhere else.
