Check out the cover of True Vision


Holy crap, is my publisher (Berkley) good to me or what?!? At left is the cover of the first book in my paranormal/romantic suspense trilogy, which I'm calling a Truelogy. True Vision hits in June 2010, followed by True Colors and True Calling.

When I first saw the cover for True Vision, I thought, "Gee, the hero looks awfully young." But then a good friend pointed out that he reminds her of Tom Welling of Smallville. Nuff said!

You might notice, too, that True Vision's cover looks similar to the just-as-awesome cover of Cold Midnight (out now). I'm psyched that my book covers already have a theme. (Oh, and the cover of True Vision is the first that shows my name above the book title. It's the little things that make my heart go pitty-pat.)

Where the hell have I been?

Well, first there was Witness Protection. But the bad guys found me. Luckily, I had my lipstick/pump-action shotgun to save me. And then I had that Butch and Sundance moment where I jumped off a cliff with a friend. But it was a small cliff ... a curb, really. And, OK, OK, I wasn't with a friend. I was in a car, with Thelma and Louise, and we were looking for a super-hot hitch hiker ...

OK, I'm making all that up. As if you couldn't tell. The truth: I've been lazy. Not lazy lazy. As in "in general." I've been lazy about the blogging and tweeting and such, but I've actually been quite productive writing. I have a fast-approaching December deadline, when the third book in my Truelogy, True Calling, is due to my editor -- and time is running short, as you can tell by that ringing alarm clock to the right. (For more info about the Truelogy, check out my website, JoyceWrites.com.)

What a fast-approaching book deadline means to me: No tweeting, no blogging, no Facebooking, not much sleeping, lots of peanuts and M&Ms. My butt is growing along with my book but luckily not at the same rate (cuz the book is growing fast).
