Publication day – it’s always lovely to see your baby taking its first faltering steps into the real world, isn’t it? Of course, we all hope those faltering steps will soon shape up into great, long strides as readers decide yes – this one looks interesting, I’ll buy it!
When I first saw this lovely cover, I was delighted. I’d imagined my heroine Cassie looking exactly like this – pretty but not goddess-gorgeous, with a cheeky grin and a good-natured expression on her nineteen-year-old face. Cassie is no fool, but she’s inexperienced in the ways of the world and of men, so she has a lot to learn in the course of this story.
I enjoyed taking her on her voyage of discovery, and I’m hoping readers will enjoy it, too.
