A Thing of Beauty

April 7, 2009 at 9:35 am (Authors, Events, Virtual Gems)


I know many of you have already seen this, but it was too dang gorgeous and too exciting not to share even more. This is Marilyn’s book cover and there is absolutely nothing about it that doesn’t suck you in, would make you run across a bookstore to grab it, shouldering aside mommies with strollers and kneecapping the dude who really needs a shower but if he’d just get out of the way and take his dang Maxim magazine with him.


You can see the really big copy here, (and read all of the wonderful back cover copy plus the amazingly fabulous quotes from Cathy Lamb, Holly Chamberlain and SUSAN WIGGS!) but mark your calendars now–174 days until this stunning beauty makes her debut (and the book is coming out, too!) Or, you can always pre-order it here.

Congratulations, Marilyn.

    Pam, you are–quite possibly–the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful person anywhere in the cyber world! *HUGS, KISSES & A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN JUST FOR YOU (along with a platter filled with all kinds of fun things to dip into it)!!* Thank you for sharing the cover love and, even more, for being such a wonderful friend. 🙂

    Really cool! I know I don’t know you, Marilyn, but we’ve all got to stick together around here, so… GOOD LUCK & CONGRATS!

    Coffee–from your lips to God’s ears! 🙂

    Griffin–I know, isn’t it? *sigh*

  6. Pamela Cayne said,

    Marilyn–it was my pleasure. Your lovely cover was just too pretty not to squee about. (And the chocolate fountain was just a bonus!) 🙂

    Kyle–thanks for joining in the celebration! It’s like the end of Working Girl and I feel like Joan Cusack screaming, “She made it!”

    It truly is an unforgettable cover. Simply stunning. I love it and can’t wait to read the book! Pam, you’re an awesome friend! Marilyn, huge congrats again! I’m so thrilled for you. Hugs to you both.

    It is an awesome cover! Stunning and classy!

  9. Sandra Ferguson said,

    The colors are positively eye-catching. Of course, maybe I’m simply a sucker for that peach shade, but everything about seems appealing. It’s a great cross-over cover, as well. Could fit perfectly shelved in a number of genres.

  10. Marilyn Brant said,

    Just popping back in to thank everyone who’s said such nice things about my cover–SO wonderfully nice of Pam to post it, SO wonderfully nice of all of you to take time to comment… Looking forward to getting to return the favor :-).

  11. Pamela Cayne said,

    Robin–I know, I can’t wait to read it, either. Just think how exuberant my posts are going to be then! 😀

    Lainey–Stunning and classy. I like that. 🙂

  12. Pamela Cayne said,

    Sandra–hi, great to see you! And what a great thought about the cross-marketing. 🙂

    Marilyn–It was just too dang pretty not to. And once I get the bullhorn for L.A., it’s going to need frequent useage, like when new books come out… 😉

  13. Caryn Caldwell said,

    Am finally catching up after our trip, and had to say it was so nice of you, Pam, to post Marilyn’s cover! I can’t wait until the book comes out. In fact, am off to preorder it now!

  14. L.A. Mitchell said,

    It *is* beautiful. Can’t wait, Marilyn!!

  15. Barrie Summy said,

    It is a GREAT cover!!

  16. Melissa Blue said,

    I have cover envy. It’s lovely.

    Is this the same book that won the GH? Big, huge congrats!

  17. Pamela Cayne said,

    Caryn–like I said, it’s gorgeous! And it’s got me so anxious to read, too! 🙂

    L.A.–Isn’t Marilyn the most lucky girl in the whole wide world? *sigh*

  18. Pamela Cayne said,

    Barrie–Hi, thanks for dropping by! Between that and liking Marilyn’s cover, I can tell you have fabulous taste! 😉

    Melissa–Yup, that’s the one, with you and me sitting together screaming for a fellow Cherry. 😀

  19. Melina said,

    Wow, am I late to this party. . . That’s what i get for being away from my computer and RSS feeds.

    But wow, what a gorgeous cover! So exciting! Thanks for sharing. Now I’m off to go tell Marilyn I finally saw her fabulous cover.
