I’m pleased to have my friend, fellow author from The Wild Rose Press, Linda Joyce, here to celebrate the cover art forthcoming release of her new book, Bayou Bound. Linda, thanks for coming.
Linda Joyce: Hi there! I am a self-appointed ambassador of Louisiana and the city of New Orleans. It’s a place steeped in magic…and may be little voodoo, too. Here’s a song that I especially love and it will set the stage for what I have next for you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re down in New Orleans, in Asia, Europe or where… Waiting for an email to pop up in your inbox is like waiting for the top of a roller coaster ride where each chug of the cars takes you higher. The thrill literally comes after you reach the top. Anticipation can be a cruel friend.
I’ve been waiting for THE email that would deliver my next book cover. Anticipation sent me to stress eating–popcorn every night. A cover release, just like a book release requires the patience of a saint. But Lord knows, I’m not one.
But it’s here now! The cover reveal for Bayou Bound, the second book in the Fleur de Lis series.
Introducing Biloxi Dutrey and Nick Trahan in Bayou Bound.
Biloxi Dutrey grounds her jet-setting photography career and returns to Mississippi when she learns her family home, Fleur De Lis, is headed for financial ruin. She plans to save it by scooping up the job of Keeper. But that means breaking tradition, and her family isn’t cooperating.
Veterinarian Nick Trahan is new in town and wants folks to stop matchmaking. He won’t settle for just a pretty face. He wants the perfect woman, one who believes in family and commitment—the exact opposite of his parents.
Nick rescues Biloxi during a raging storm, but the squall is tame compared to the tempest between them. Soon they experience the backlash from the long-standing feud between their families. If Biloxi surrenders her dreams for Fleur de Lis and toes the line with tradition, will she also be forced to give up on “forever love” due to the hate their families still harbor?
Release date is still unknown, but soon, very soon. Stay tuned for news of the release. I’ll be giving away lots of books!
In the meantime, if you’re behind in the story, Branna and James are waiting for you in Bayou Born.
Nice cover, dear Linda! Good luck with it, and all you do!
