I am over-the-moon, please-don’t-yank-me-off-this-cloud, excited to show off the cover for Bring Me Back. I’m thrilled with this cover for many reasons, and not just because it’s beautiful and SO me–it represents this story on many levels and puts the perfect face on a book of which I am undeniably proud. For my readers who are writers, you know how little input authors usually get when it comes to cover design. It’s not much. I am incredibly lucky to have Turquoise Morning Press as my publisher, who carefully listened to me and the case I pled for this image. I couldn’t be any happier with the results. Now to wait for January 20th!
Bring Me Back
Music critic Claire Abby is a single mom dreading her daughter’s departure for college and worried that turning forty will leave her career running on fumes. She’s floored when she lands a Rolling Stone cover story on 80s British rock legend Christopher Penman. She spent her teenage years fantasizing he was her boyfriend.
In person, Christopher is everything Claire feared he’d be—charming, witty and unwilling to address the rumors he’s dodged for a decade. Still, she contains her adolescent fantasies and manages to earn his trust, unearthing the truth and the devastating secret behind it. His blockbuster story is her first priority when she returns home, a nearly impossible task when Christopher starts calling and flirting. She knows she should maintain a professional distance. She knows she should focus on the story. She knows it would be best to simply walk away. But how can she say “no” to the man she could never forget?
“Fast-paced, sexy and altogether irresistible, Bring Me Back is made all the more appealing by Karen Booth’s inside knowledge of the music industry. A flat-out fabulous read!”–Celia Rivenbark, NYT Bestselling author
“In Bring Me Back Karen Booth shifts every girl’s adolescent daydreams into the sharp focus of adulthood, and proves that reality can be even better than fantasy.”–author Margaret Ethridge
Bring Me Back will be published by Turquoise Morning Press, January 20, 2013. It will be available in all e-book formats and trade paperback.
