New release and new covers!

When I realized I really was going to do a 6th book in the Family Blood Ties series I wanted to redo all the covers. The first book in the series was one of the first books I ever released and the cover reflected the times. So with the new release up and coming, my son and I slowly but surely redesigned everyone one the first five covers to bring it line with the character who has grown so much through this series.

Let’s take a look. Here’s the first book it the series and the one that spawned the rest – Vampire in Denial

And the newest book #6- Vampire in Conflict

9781928122227The blood farm is gone. Those behind it have either died, been caught, or are on the run. Time to return to the real world.

Only normal life isn’t quite what Tessa expected. Good thing, because there is no ‘normal’ anymore. She’s different. Her family is different. Her friends are different. The world around her is different. Trying to find her place is not easy. She wants nothing more than to be a normal teenager and join Cody and his friends on a Friday night out.

Cody wants the trouble to be over so he can get back to living the life he used to with one major addition โ€“ Tessa.

Only Ian and Jewel aren’t healing well, Rhia is acting out of character, and Jared keeps tripping over dead bodies. Then there’s David, who’ll do anything to help Jewelโ€ฆ even something he knows he shouldn’t do.

Something is wrong, and once again it’s up to Tessa to figure out what is happening under the surface of this ‘normal’ life.

So what do you think of the evolution of my covers?

    Hi Dale,

    Congratulations on Vampire in Conflict! Looks amazing. Great redesigned covers! My favorite is the first. Mystery, and I love how the green of her eyes stands out. So, when is book 7? ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Mary!

      I really love the new covers. They move the series into 2014 (wow only 2 years for this!) I love the first too. As that book is perma free it’s been a great draw for the rest.

      Ha! I’ve already gotten a dozen emails asking about book 7! I doubt it will be until January. Too many to catch up on first! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Very cool. I really like the redesigned covers.
