Cover Reveal: WinterJacked Book One: Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening
Sometimes you reinvent yourself…Sometimes you redefine reality


“Rude Awakening” is the first book in the WinterJacked cycle. This amazing cover is brought to you by the incredible talents of Jennette Marie Powell, whose genius with gorgeous covers is second only to her genius with gripping action reads that keep me up all night. Go forth and check her out–you’ll be glad you did.

Sometimes you reinvent yourself…Sometimes you redefine reality.

Jack Winters lost his perfect, upwardly-mobile life (along with the perfect, upwardly-mobile wife) when it intersected with a pack of fantastical creatures. He’s spent three years determinedly ignoring the Things That Should Not Be, and kept his failures frozen under a thick layer of isolation from the best friends he’s ever had. But when a holiday reunion presents him with the woman who Might Have Been, suddenly the impossible doesn’t seem so improbable anymore…

Lin Sanada thought she was long over her college crush and the Missed Connections that kept her and Jack Winters “just friends” for nearly twenty years. She’s moved on, and left old dreams behind. But a winter night and a full moon and a little magic have other ideas…

To the young, impossible dreams are magic. At forty, they’re called a mid-life crisis. Jack’s got a choice. Keep clinging to the shreds of his old life…or make a new reality.

Rude Awakening will be soft-launched right around Black Friday, just in time for the holidays. Stay tuned for excerpts, behind-the-scenes, and details about buy links closer to the launch date. In the meantime, isn’t this cover gorgeous?
