Lovely New Cover Reveal

This has all been happening fairly quickly, but I'm delighted to reveal the lovely cover for the first romantic contemporary/fantasy novella in my new series set in Cyprus featuring Aphrodite and Adonis. The Aphrodite Touch is being released next Thursday, 23rd May from great little Irish independent Tirgearr Publishing!


My publisher will be interviewing me on their blog on release day, with a free download offered to one commenter, and I've decided to have a fun online launch party (as usual) on this blog to celebrate on Tuesday, 28th May. Get us in the mood for summer - if it ever arrives! Watch out for the invitation.

Here's the blurb to maybe entice you to read the whole of the short, fun novella:

The Aphrodite Touch

Carla hopes that ten days on the romantic island of Cyprus will finally progress her relationship with reserved Scottish boyfriend, Jamie, to a full physical commitment. Or prove that they have no future together. But they had reckoned without the intervention of the goddess Aphrodite and her lover, Adonis. Will Aphrodite awaken Jamie’s hidden depths and allow him to return the passion that Adonis senses in Carla?

Meanwhile, I musn't forget my recently published children's book, The Jigsaw Puzzle! I'm featured on Kai Strand's lovely blog today, answering a few fun questions.

Rosemary

(or Romy or Ros depending which kind of writing I'm talking about!)

Lovely cover. I am about to leave Cyprus, after eight years here. I have watched many romances bloom on the island. :)

Thank you, Teresa!

How lovely to live there, Glynis - I've never forgotten our holiday some years ago and we're hoping to go back later this year. Love all the mythology and history too, hence the series!
