So, yesterday when I should have been editing All in the Half-Vampire Family, I got messing about to make a cover for my newest WIP, The Chocolate Smuggler's Notebook.
It's not the final cover, of course. But it gives me something to visualize while I write.
(Yes, it's a couple of my old pens and a bottle of ink spread out on a paper sack with some steampunk gears and clockfaces I had for making my altered books. I just photographed it and added the text. But it'll do for now.)
Here's my first book blurb for this one:
Oliver Laird is not what he seems.
True, he's the brilliant clockmaker's apprentice who invented the ClockOx and the Pulley Delivery System. And, yes, he is that very same young man whom Brother Lyle Carter Oswald himself asked to see. And certainly he's the lad who clandestinely meets with that gypsy rascal, London Sunday, to smuggle the cocoa powder in for the ladies of the town. The boy who saved handsome James Whittaker's reputation after that graveyard incident. The one who travels with Doctor Ephraim Paine. The chap who studies languages with Bertie Haven. Yes, that fellow.
Except that Oliver is really Olivia.
And it's getting harder and harder to hide that fact. Especially around all those handsome men. Especially when she suddenly has more power than any of them.
Especially when her life might be the cost if her secret is discovered.
