…but not by me. Let me explain.
After waffling back and forth as to which pen name this book best belonged to, I decided it made more sense to let my other me run with it. Since sex is somewhat of a major plot element and part of what makes it unique, Prometheus fit her readership better. BUT, I know many of you are cross-over readers and The P.U.R.E. certainly wasn’t that “pure” in the risque sense.
Any way, I just executed a contract with Evernight Publishing for Prometheus Unstitched with an expected publish date of August 2012. This publisher moves very briskly, so I can expect and hopefully share the cover within a couple of weeks.
For those unfamiliar with Prometheus Unstitched, here is the blurb for my superhero romantic comedy. (And I’ll add that I’m a total nerd because this book still makes me giggle when I read it.)
Cory Blindbarrow of Blindbarrow Crimefighting Couture, loves her work—from tailoring bulletproof fabrics to engineering concealed weaponry. Kowtowing to the over-sized egos of her superhero clientele? Not so much.
Her newest client, Theo Richelieu, aka Prometheus Man, can see five minutes into the future. Unfortunately, nobody believes him. He’s exactly the type that pushes Cory’s buttons. But he’s also quite talented at engaging (and disengaging) her snaps and zippers. As maddening as Theo can be, Cory can’t deny their supernatural chemistry.
When a sniper targets Cory’s colleagues, Theo appoints himself her protector. His know-it-all attitude soon has her ready to tattoo a bullseye on her forehead. If Theo is unable to convince the headstrong couturier she’s the sniper’s next mark, their happily ever after might never make it out of the design phase.
And then there’s the cover I made for it…sniff…buh-bye. We hardly knew ye, but tis a far, far, better place you go to than the archives of my computer, my love.
I’m so going to have to gift this to my mother. She works for a ballistics company that also makes body armor, etc. 😀
Oh cool! I’d love to know what she thinks. Thank you, Alex!
Also, CONGRATS! 🙂
Congrats! Your blurb had me thinking of “The Incredibles.” 😉
I’ve had several people compare it to that, actually. It definitely pokes fun at the superhero tropes.
Congrats on the contract! Don’t worry, your new cover promises to be hot, hot, hot!!
Thank you! I think it’ll be terrific too! Haven’t been disappointed yet. 🙂
Yay! Looking forward to it.
Thanks. I think you’ll find this one next in line after All’s Fair in the sarcastic heroine category to The PURE and first in line for plot.
You have big shoes to fill following up the PURE. That’s way up there on my list of favorite novels.
Thank you, first of all. I can’t say that either one is gonna make that grade, but overall Prometheus would come the closest (and is the only one with an explosion/guns). They’re also novellas though, not novels like the PURE plus they’re marketed as erotic romance vs. romantic suspense so different playgrounds.
Reblogged this on The Real Sisterhood of the Travelling Pens and commented:
Thanks for that, Rebecca!! 🙂
So what’s the chance of being able to use this cover?
Dunno, but I did mention Francis Cura in my cover blurb sheet to them so there’s a chance absent me sending over the JPG and saying, “this! use this!”…which I almost did, believe it or not. LOL
I would have done it if it’s royalty free. I sent a tattoo design for The Wolves of Argonne and if I finish one of the things in my homebrew, I’ll send over the graphic too. The worst they can say is no. 🙂
I’m a little late to the game but big congrats! I knew Cory would see the light of day one way or another! 🙂
Hey Silver! Thank you! I’m glad Evernight took a chance on it. I’ll probably be sending my readers over to the dark side to read it. It’s very low heat on Evernight’s scale as was All’s Fair, but that one seems to be doing OK so I’m hopeful.
Wow! You are on a roll! Congrats! Again…
