Cover Reveal for Golden Days

Every time I get a new cover, it’s a whoop-it-up moment! Thanks for sharing it with me as I reveal the one for Golden Days!

The cover for Golden Days was designed by Prism Book Group’s editor-in-chief Joan Alley. She knows just how to wrangle the background, heroine, title, and author name into a cohesive, attractive cover. Thanks, Joan!

Here’s the blurb:

Alaska is a cold place to live until love blossoms. Elizabeth Robinson travels by dog sled to help her family mind the store in Fairbanks, Alaska. She wants to pursue her drawing and painting, but women artists are rare in 1906, and flood, fire, and a death in the family force her to take charge at home at age seventeen. James Garrett comes north to help his uncle at a nearby gold claim. An awkward eighteen-year-old who is more at home with machines than people, he becomes a man as he falls in love with Elizabeth. When a discovery about her benefactor, the founder of the town, threatens their future, Elizabeth and James find that together they can overcome any obstacle.

Golden Days is the fourth in my YA/NA historical romance series set in the Alaska Gold Rush. You might recognize Jeannie from Quicksilver to Gold—she and her husband Clint take supporting roles in this book. And of course, Ralph and Jim appear in this one too. Plus, you’ll meet other characters that I hope you’ll love as much as I did when I wrote them.
