A Quick Update

Maven Jackie BarbosaSince MaveFave Vicki posted yesterday asking how the Mavens are doing, I thought it was the least I could do to pop by for a really quick update and...well, an utterly shameless squee.

As always, the day job, the family, and the writing are keeping me plenty occupied. I am (still :P) working on my option book proposal for Kensington. After writing about 8K, I found myself in a corner I didn't know how to get out of and realized I needed to retool the story from the ground up. Sigh. It happens!

A little over a week ago, I discovered a black and white, low resolution version of the cover art for my Kensington release, Behind the Red Door. Finally, after many excruciating day of impatient anticipation, the color, high-resolution version is here and I can share it with you.

Let me know what you think! But I warn you, it's mine, mine, all mine.

Wow, the cover is fabulous!!!

Love the cover! And it sure is great to hear from the Mavens again - I thought you'd all fallen off the edge of the earth.

To check out another MaveFave's cover, go to (or and enter:
978-1436375788 in the search box. It's a romance/adventure with a dash of the paranormal mixed in for spice.

It probably would never have been written but for the Manuscript Mavens' multifarious musings (how's that for a little alliteration?). So the credit - or the blame - belongs squarely with you all. :)

If by mine, you mean the cover. I'll let you keep it so long as I get the cover model.

It looks fabulous, Jackie! I can't wait to read it!

I like the way the cup of her right breast's bodice is coming off in the guy's melt in your hands, not in your mouth's grasp. How did you work up this art? Did you take the pic yourself, or use one you found elsewhere?
