A Boy Named Rabbit Cover Reveal!

Woohoo! I’m so excited to share the cover of my next book in the Wake-Robin Ridge series, A Boy Named Rabbit. As always, my cover GODDESS, Nicki Forde, has done exactly what I wanted with this one. All I had to do was say “waterfall” and “silhouette,” and she nailed it.

For those who aren’t familiar with Book 1 in this series, Wake-Robin Ridge, here’s a shot of that one, so you can see our intent with the series is to keep the same basic layout, and just change the middle image to something appropriate for each book. And thus, a bit of branding occurs. Hopefully. So what do you think? Do you like the new cover? Are we on the right track when you see the old one? (Oh, and for those who aren’t familiar with North Carolina wildflowers, a wake-robin is the red trillium on the cover, and the springtime bloom for which the ridge is named.)

    • Thanks so much, Joanne! I’m really pleased with how they look. I’ll be doing something similar on my sequel to Swamp Ghosts. The flower is a type of trillium, which grows low to the ground, carpeting the forest floor. Most trillium are white or pale pink, but wake-robins are this lovely wine color, and extra beautiful. I definitely plan to keep them on every cover in the series. And lovely to see you here, today!

    • Thanks for taking the time to let me know, Jen. I know you’re NaNoWriMo-ing all over the place today, and I appreciate your stopping by. I just am so pleased with it, I couldn’t help but share it. It says so much about this little boy who has stolen my heart!


      • Welllll… as I confessed to Aimee earlier, I’m doing more Starburst-eating than NaNo-writing today. I’m actually revising something else and haven’t even started my NaNo words yet. I’ll eek it all out, but it’s slow going.

        Either way though, I would have stopped to praise your cover. πŸ™‚

        • Ha. I just ate a handful of Halloween candy. Gleep. I don’t even LIKE candy, really. (I’m a pastry kind of indulger). But somehow, knowing it’s in the candy jar…well, it seemed like I should have some with my afternoon tea. Stoopit!

          I’m glad you tore yourself away from the Starbursts, though. I need that feedback, even though I know in my heart the cover is great. πŸ™‚


    • Hi, Evelyn! Thanks so much. I’m very proud of this one. And how lucky am I to have a graphic artist as my best friend? Plus, our minds are in synch, so when I tell her my idea, she makes it happen just as I pictured, only BETTER. Glad you stopped by tonight! Hope your book is doing well!


    • Caitlin! What a pleasant surprise to see you here! πŸ˜€ (I was giving Caitlin a hard time earlier about not having commented on my new cover! Look how good she was. Or intimidated? Nah. She’s not scared of me. She wields a mighty red pen and edits my books, and her word is law. Mostly. So I’m pretty sure I can’t do anything to intimdate her).

      Truly, Caitlin, in all seriousness, I’m glad you like it. It’s my favorite of the three. I’m a sucker for Little Rabbit, I’ll confess. Just seeing him sitting there makes me want to hug him. *sniff*

      Thanks for coming back by to comment. You’re the best!


        • Hehehe. There’s the South, the Deep South, and the Southwest, and never the twain shall meet. Okay, the twains may meet, but it will be a big surprise if they each understand what the other is saying. πŸ˜€ And then there’s those southern mountain folk…that’s a whole ‘nuther league. πŸ˜‰

          And no one else is scared of me, so why should you be different? But regardless, I’m damn lucky to have you working with me, and I learn more about writing from you with every book we do. No, really. I AM learning. Sometimes I have to THINK of things to do wrong, just to give you something to do. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
