Bleeding Heart - Cover Reveal...

When Amber, over at Seasons of Humility  asked if I would do a cover reveal for her upcoming novel, I was very happy to comply! I've been following Amber's blog for quite awhile now and she has been a lovely follower of mine.

Amber is a sweetheart and I've always enjoyed visiting through our blogs.

Now she's about to publish her first novel and I'm excited to share it here with you!

First a little about Amber...

About the Author

Amber Stokes has a Bachelor of Science degree in English and a passion for the written word - from blogging to writing poetry, short stories, and novels. After her brief time at college in Oregon, she is now back home among the redwoods of Northern California, living life one day at a time and pursuing her passion via freelance editing and self-publishing her debut novel, Bleeding Heart. You can connect with Amber on her blog, Seasons of Humility.

About the Book

Five bleeding hearts. One profound journey.

Summer 1886

Sally Clay's livelihood has been snatched away, but in its place arises an opportunity to escape from her sordid past and an unrelenting, unwanted suitor. Boarding a train with a heartsick rancher and an enigmatic miner, she leaves Virginia City behind and heads to Northern California, waiting for the chance to make right what went wrong three long years before.

But the road to revenge is far from smooth. Sally soon learns that the jagged pieces of a broken heart can far too easily wound the hearts of others - and hers isn't the only heart that's broken. Tragedy and fear dog her steps as she flees from the redwood forests to the high desert and back again. Will her bleeding heart ever find a way and a place to heal?

A desperate soiled dove. Three men who come to care for her. One man determined to claim her.

All on a journey that will show them what true love really involves.

  1. Great post, Cathy! Loved this cover the first time I opened the file. The shading is stunning and the cover in general is well put together. Betting the inside will be even lovelier. :)

    1. I thought the cover was gorgeous too when I first saw it! I love the sky in the background, the rolling hills and the way the young girl is sitting with her dress all around her. So pretty!

      I'm looking forward to reading it. : )

  2. Aww, so grateful for your friendship and your willingness to be a part of this, Cathy! Thank you! :)

    Love your thoughts and Rissi's about the cover!

    Just wanted to add that this is actually the second novel I've written, but the first one I'm working on getting published. :) Considering editing that first and publishing it as the prequel someday - it's called Forget Me Not. You know I like themes! ;)


    1. Oh! I'll change that now. : )

      Thanks for stopping by Amber and for including me in your book cover reveal!

  3. Fun blog Kathy and love that you've featured Amber's cover for Bleeding Hearts. It is such a beautiful cover. Amber and Lena did a terrific job on it.

    Best wishes.

    1. Thanks Sandra! I agree they did a wonderful job. : )


Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments. I try to respond to all of them by the end of the week. : )
