GivenPB_revisedObviously the big news around here last week was my cover reveal for THE GIVEN (and thanks again to Shelly for helping me out with that):

And here’s what it’s about:

After learning that his wife, Evelyn, survived the attack that killed him fifty years earlier, angel/PI Griffin Shaw will risk everything to find her—an obsession that comes with a price. Grif has had to forsake his new love, journalist, Katherine “Kit” Craig—the woman who made his life worth living again—to find a woman he may not even recognize.

Yet when Kit is attacked again, it becomes clear that there are forces in both the mortal and heavenly realm determined to protect dark secrets buried in the past. To survive, Grif must convince Kit to put aside her personal hurt and help him discover the truth—a dangerous journey that will put them in the crosshairs of enemies both old and new . . . and test the limits of what one angel will sacrifice for love.

 And that, my Peeps, concludes this trilogy: LostCover GivenPB_revised

I’m so proud of this series, I’m thankful to those of you who’ve joined Kit and Grif — and me — on this journey about a 50’s PI-turned-angel and his modern day love. I’ve had so much fun melding the classic detective story with enough paranormal elements to create a new world … and a new way of looking at this ol’ world.

THE GIVEN drops in May, and you can preorder it here. Also, check back in here on Tuesday or add me to your RSS feed for news of a great deal regarding this series on Tuesday. Or you can sign up for my newsletter and it’ll automatically come to you. That’s where you’ll get all the news regarding my upcoming releases and news, too.

So about a week ago I’m minding my own business, procrastinating on Twitter, when up pops a direct message from a blogger I know from over the years, Shelly at Gizmo Reviews. She was contacting me to let me know she had seen the cover for THE GIVEN, the third and final installment in the Celestial Blues Trilogy. She was going to post it on her site, but she noted that I hadn’t said anything about it yet, and didn’t want to spoil the big reveal for me.

Now, guys, as someone who has been beaten to sharing my own cover for, oh, at least the last four books, I can’t tell you how sweet and refreshing I found this to be. I don’t think anyone else has intentionally usurped me in the past, and I choose to believe it’s pure enthusiasm for the covers and the series that’s led to the slights, but after working for a full year on a book it’s nice to be able to do it yourself, you know?

I was so grateful to Shelly for DM-ing me (and, seriously guys, you can do that. You talk, I talk back. It’s like dancing but without the squished toes and onion breath) that I asked if she’d like to team up for the cover reveal. That’s why you need to click on one little extra link to see it.

I’ll post it on my site and networks in a couple of days, but for now it’s Shelly’s. And mine. And yours. So without further ado (adoo? Doesn’t it look like it should be spelled adoo? *shakes head* Anyhoo…) the cover for The Given can be found here. What do you think? And which is your favorite of the three?

I gotta say, I’m loving this one, but I’m hesitant to commit because I say that with each new cover in this series. At any rate, they’re a gorgeous package, I couldn’t be happier, and I think Harper and the cover artist, Larry Rostant, absolutely nailed it.

Thanks to all!
