Hey everyone, I’m so excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming novella, CLASH here at Austen Variations. CLASH takes place after SWAY, but stands alone. If you haven’t read about Ava Elliot from SWAY yet, but want a fun, quick read, or an idea of my style, CLASH is the way to go. And in case you were wondering, Elizabeth Elliot is a modern-day representation of Miss Elliot from PERSUASION. I worked with the same cover artist who designed the cover for SWAY and she is fabulous! But before I show you the cover, here’s the blurb:
Planning a party is easy, falling in love is hard.
No longer content to be a Los Angeles socialite, Elizabeth Elliot starts her own party planning business: Excessively Diverted, making dreams come true one party at a time. She even knows how to handle those unruly party guests, like Antonio Reyes, the man who drank too much, insulted the décor, and didn’t know the difference between crudités and canapés. The nerve.
So when this same Tony Reyes demands she plan his daughter’s Sweet Sixteen, Elizabeth refuses, no matter how many dollar signs are attached to his name. That is until Elizabeth discovers her new business is in trouble. She must suck up her pride and work with Tony, despite how much she hates the man.
As Elizabeth gets to know Tony and his daughter, her clear-cut hatred starts to get muddled with feelings—the kind that could screw up the job, and her life, completely. She must decide whether risking her heart is worth it… but who has time for all that when there’s a party to be planned?
So without further ado… here’s my cover!
What do you think? I love the couple back-to-back because that’s so Beth and Antonio, plus I love the bubbles throughout because they look festive, which is perfect for Beth’s job as a party planner. Also, it goes perfectly with SWAY’s cover, which you can check out here in case you haven’t seen it.
CLASH will be available June 27th, but pssst….. I’ll be giving it away for free once I get my newsletter all set up, so keep your eyes peeled!
