I’m very excited to announce that one of my backlist titles has just been given a beautiful new cover.
The Little Things was the very first novel I wrote – back in November 2012 during Nanowrimo – although it was my second book to be published because of scheduling. It was published in 2013 by Dreamspinner Press.
The original cover design, shown here, was by Paul Richmond. It’s beautiful, and was exactly what I’d asked for. But I don’t think it helped the book sell to the romance market. So, I was very pleased when Dreamspinner agreed that The Little Things could have a face lift.
The new cover is designed by Garrett Leigh. It’s more in keeping with my other covers so I think it suits my brand better. I really love it, I hope you do too!
There are lots of things that brighten Joel’s life. His three-year-old daughter, Evie, is one. His close relationship with her mother, his best friend from university, is another. Joel’s boyfriend, Dan, adds spice to his child-free nights, and Joel is pretty happy with how things are.
Then one cold and rainy night, everything changes. Joel’s life is turned upside down when he becomes a full-time dad to Evie, and his previously carefree relationship with Dan cracks under the strain.
Meeting Liam, who acts as if getting hurt isn’t a foregone conclusion, shakes Joel to the core. Their attraction is mutual, and Liam makes no secret of how serious he is about Joel. But Joel is wary. He tells himself he’s keeping Liam at a distance for Evie’s sake, when really he’s protecting his own heart. Taking a chance on this new relationship with Liam may seem a small step—a little thing—but is it one Joel can take after losing so much already?
