The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody – #CoverReveal


They’re back!
Jake and Dodger are at it again,
accompanied by their
boss, the archangel Azrael.

I am so excited, I can hardly stand it. Once again, Nicki Forde Graphic Designs has come up with a cover that does exactly what I wanted it to do. It provides a great-looking image that clearly links the second novella in my Emissary series with the first one. And it does this by putting Jake’s big, red-and-white semi front and center, angel wings and all, but with a completely different background.

In The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody, Jake and Dodger travel both coasts of Florida, day and night, working their emissarial magic wherever they find souls in trouble. For me, the palm fronds over the truck, the ocean in the background, and the moon shining down are perfect.

I can’t give you an exact release date for The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody yet, as I still have a few more tiny odds and ends to finish up, including the blurb. But I’m 99.9% sure it will be available within a week or two, and I’ll have more to share with you then. In the meantime, what do you think?

My heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful bloggers who have helped me share my new cover with the Immediate World, including Mae Clair, Joan Hall, Staci Troilo, Harmony Kent, Hugh Roberts, Cathy Ryan, Tony Riches, Chris Graham, Jacquie Biggar, Mary Smith, Hywela Lyn, Deborah Jay, Carol Westover, Julie Holmes, Stevie Turner, Colleen Chesebro, Debbie Geis, and Robbie Cheadle. (If I missed anyone, please forgive me!) It’s truly lovely to be part of such a supportive online community, and every single one of you is special to me. Thank you!

NOTE: This is not a stand-alone novella, so now’s a good time to grab the first one. You can read it in an evening and be all set for The Emissary 2. You’ll find The Emissary 1 on Amazon HERE.

Author Marcia Meara

Marcia Meara lives in central Florida, just north of Orlando, with her husband of over thirty years, four big cats, and two small dachshunds. When not writing or blogging, she spends her time gardening, and enjoying the surprising amount of wildlife that manages to make a home in her suburban yard. At the age of five, Marcia declared she wanted to be an author, and is ecstatic that at age 69, she finally began pursuing that dream. Her belief in the redemptive power of love is a unifying factor in both of her popular series and her poetry. Today, she’s still going strong, and plans to keep on writing until she falls face down on the keyboard, which she figures would be a pretty good way to go!

Marcia has published six novels, one novella, and one book of poetry to date, all of which are available on Amazon:
Wake-Robin Ridge
A Boy Named Rabbit: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 2
Harbinger: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3

Swamp Ghosts: A Riverbend Novel
Finding Hunter: Riverbend Book 2
That Darkest Place: Riverbend Book 3 

The Emissary: A Riverbend Spinoff Novella 

Summer Magic: Poems of Life & Love

    • Thanks so much, Staci! Again, this little novella was a lot of fun to write, and I hope it will touch readers’ hearts, giving them a sniffle here or there, and a laugh or two along the way. And thank YOU for helping me make it better! 🙂 ❤

    • Thanks so much, Darlene. Since these stories are all part of one book, I wanted to keep the covers very similar. I’ll be combining parts 1, 2, and 3 for the print version, so it isn’t quite the same as an ongoing series. And I’m lucky to have a best friend who is a cover design goddess! 😀 If you get a chance to read this one, I hope you’ll enjoy it. ❤

    • Thanks so much, Mae! I hope you’ll enjoy their latest adventures. (I have discovered that writing the “middle” book in a trilogy is pretty tricky!) And I agree the cover is fabulous. Of course, as you know, these novellas are actually Parts 1, 2, and 3 of the same book, and the covers will be very closely related. But I love the beachy aspect of this one, because To Love Somebody takes place in Florida, entirely–though not always on the beach. But I think it works, and hope others will like it, too. Thanks again for all your help, my friend! ❤

      And yes, please, on the bubbly. After all, a gal can't live on Earl Grey alone. Wait. Did I just say that? (Asks she, sipping her tea even as she types?) 😀

    • Thanks so much, Teagan! So glad you are looking forward to reading more. I do love writing about Jake & Dodger, and their ginormous, white-winged boss, Azrael. (But don’t tell him I called him boss. Rumor has it he really hates that!)

      I try to keep all my series covers related enough to be recognizable as being connected, but since these novellas are actually 3 parts of the same final book, I wanted it even more so. I think we’ve done that, and I hope it appeals to a lot of readers. Happy you like it! 🙂 ❤

    • Thanks, Nicki! Everyone loves this cover, so you will DEFINITELY continue to be my only graphics designer, hopefully for many years to come! Your work is always perfection, and I’m so lucky to have you in my corner! ❤ ❤ ❤


    • Thanks, Terri, and how great that you are reading Swamp Ghosts. (I will warn you, the ghosts are purely metaphorical in this one. You have to go to my Wake-Robin Ridge series for the “real” ones. 😀 ) I’m glad to hear you are enjoying it so far, and hope you’ll continue to do so. I’ll be interested in hearing what you think when you finish, for sure. 🙂

        • Oh, I think I remember that, now, Terri. Sorry! (You have to forgive this tired brain I’ve got right now. Well, you don’t HAVE to, but I hope you will. 😀 ) And I do hope you enjoy Swamp Ghosts. Maggie & Gunn were fun to write, and the Painter Brothers, who had smallish roles in this one, became favorites of mine in the next two. There is something that touches me about the bonds between brothers. But that’s another story for another day. (Literally.) 😀 Enjoy your excursion down the dark waterways of the St. Johns River Basin. 😀 ❤
