Revving up for reissues

Due to what can only be called a monumental muddle, some of which is mine, it’s taken me a while to get my Dreamspinner titles back up and running.

Success is on the horizon!

My cover artist has been busily crafting some lovely new faces for the Mountain books, and the novels are pretty well nailed down.  Found some hotties, she did.

Starting this coming Friday, February 29, they’ll be coming back up!

Here’s a little teaser:

Yes, that’s Kurt! Quite the hunk, no wonder Jake’s smitten. He’s equally Rawr on the Fire cover, but the shadows on the teaser worked out strangely and I only want you guys to see him at his very best. Which means the whole cover. Can you wait until Friday?

So let me give a little shout-out to Charli Childs, who did her magic to put faces on these books.

So, we’re on our way back into the Rockies, not just with these stories, but with more to come.

Amazing video for Snow on the Mountain

Una nevicata in montagna is coming out on November 11, and the lovely Francesca Girauda and her team put together this video to show Kurt and Jake’s adventures. This is so my new favorite song. The imagery is perfect for the story, and there’s even a section for the bonus Christmas story at the end. **squee** It doesn’t matter what language you read these boys in, that video is PERFECT!

Snow snark with Jake

Hi, snark-hoppers! Today’s tidbit is from Snow on the Mountain. Jake opened the book by rescuing a child from a fall off a ski lift, and the newsies have gotten wind of it. You can tell what Jake thinks of his new heroic status.

So I spent my lunch hour explaining in very little detail about how Todd came to topple and about the rescue, showing distressing tendencies—I was sure it would get edited out—to talk about rock climbing, and mentioning Egon’s role in making the climb possible. The wind was starting to whip up, blowing the needles of snow into Ms. Perky’s unprotected face while I droned on from the warmth of my scarf. She’d get edited out, with that tendril of hair that kept flying across her face to make a lopsided mustache every time she turned to keep the slope and the lift in the background. She’d never make anchorwoman, I thought uncharitably, if she didn’t have the sense to braid her hair for the slopes.

Channel 4 sent Ms. Businesslike, who had dressed sensibly and styled her hair for the wind, and a cameraman. They spotted us before Ms. Perky was finished with me. While waiting their turn, Roy laid out the ground rules, giving me hope that I might get to my hot soup before dark.

“Late again, I see,” Ms. Perky told Ms. Businesslike  as she and her crewman headed out.

“He’ll be more polished, now he’s practiced with you,” she shot back.

Check here at Marie Sexton’s blog for the whole list of authors; we have more folks offering tidbits.

Champagne powder snow, gorgeously groomed slopes, and elegant hotels draw the expert and the wealthy to the exclusive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort, but for Jake Landon and Kurt Carlson, the lure is work. A novice skier, Jake’s been assigned to run the bunny lift, but Kurt’s afraid he’ll be stuck shoveling snow all winter. Instructing at a private ski school should be his dream job, but it brings giggles and sideways glances among their new friends.

All summer, Jake and Kurt were alone in the wilderness. If Jake wanted to stay in the closet, it didn’t matter. Now they have to navigate a relationship in public, where the five-year-old twins who’ve adopted Jake as their ski buddy are as big a nuisance as the ski patroller who has a crush on him. Would-be friends, vicious coworkers, and the perils of the mountain could mean the end for Kurt and Jake, but their biggest danger comes from each other.

Bonus story: Mistletoe on the Mountain

Jake’s agonizing over what to give Kurt for their first Christmas together—he knows what Kurt wants most can’t be gift wrapped.

Find it at Dreamspinner, All Romance eBooks, and Amazon, as well as other fine etailers.

Saturday Snark!

Snow on the Mountain PD Singer coverThis week’s snark comes from Snow on the Mountain, which will be out from Dreamspinner in two weeks.

Kurt’s interviewing at the ski school, and Jake’s come inside where it’s warm.

A tall blond man in ski clothes entered while she was still on the phone and took a seat on her desk, one thigh raised against the edge. He scowled at the closed door, then at me. What? I was just waiting.

“Did Rudi not decide upon Egon?” His words were to her, but his sneer was to me. “Or does he want corn-fed Americans now?”

A new face for Snow

Snow on the Mountain will be out from Dreamspinner in August, just in time to heat you up and cool you off. Reece Dante’s set them on a ski slope for a cover and we’ve written fresh blurb, to go with the spiffy new text and editing. What do you think?
