Cover for the Fairytale Sequel!

I've shown the new cover to Someone Else's Fairytale, which will go live on Amazon in the next few hours. Now here's the cover for the sequel, Nobody's Damsel. I like how it turned out, but as all my fans should know, I'm always open to critiques. Let me know what you think!

The release date for this one will be early next year, but if I can get it out sooner, I will. In the meantime, I will offer preorders for it here on the site, once I've got the cover up on Goodreads and can get the word out. The biggest obstacle to an early release date is that we may be moving early next year, and I want to make sure to release the very best possible book I can. Right now it's rolling along, almost writing itself, so I'm optimistic. Once it's all written, there are two rounds of proofreading and editing before I start the Kindle layouts. In any case, it will be out by the end of winter.

I can give a few clues away, though. In this book, Chloe works her first case as a criminalist and crime scene investigator. As luck would have it, it's a crime against a child, and she learns how hard it is to be an adult on the outside looking in. It's not as bad as being the child in danger (which she's been before), but it's a lot harder than she'd ever anticipated. I'll be vague here to avoid spoilers for anyone who hasn't read the first book and simply say that her husband wants more than anything to be able to help, but feels powerless. This case will change him too.


  1. I'm so excited! I'll preorder ASAP on kindle. And the cover is gorgeous, btw.

    p.s. I'm rereading Someone Else's Fairytale (loving it) and I have to ask: How do you come up with such amazing titles?

  2. Thanks so much! You know, Someone Else's Fairytale was the one decent title I came up with. I'm *terrible* at titles. For Nobody's Damsel I brainstormed a bunch of ideas, pestered my old writer's group in New Mexico, and had one sided conversations with myself - though I did keep trying to convince my husband I was talking to him. Constantly interrupting myself didn't really help him believe that. Not sure it's a brilliant title, but it goes with the theme, at least!

  3. Hi Emily,

    Will this be the final book of the series or are you planning more. I truly looking forward to it!

    1. I'm planning more. The book after Damsel is tentatively titled, The Hunt for the Big Bad Wolf.
