The New Cover is Here!

At last, the new cover for Shades of Gray is here!

Yes, that’s Katelina. I know Jorick used to be on it, but he got booted in favor of the main character.  Any guesses who will be on book 2?

What do you think? Like it? Love it? Hate it? Want an autographed paperback copy? If so message me, otherwise leave your thoughts in the comments!

(It may take a few days for all retailers to update the listing with the new cover, so if you don’t see it yet, it’s coming!)

Paperback | Amazon Kindle | Smashwords | Barnes & Noble | Apple iBooks | Kobo

Also, check out the new Collector’s Edition cover (only available in paperback)


Look for the new Legacy of Ghosts cover on March 17th!

  1. Now I know what Katelina looks like! Love it!

  2. Love the new cover, Jo. Although I will miss the collector edition of hand drawn ones. 😀

  3. hate it… *runs and hides* Glad I got the original covers! 😉
    I know why you’re doing it, but I just hate the covers on bookshelves these days. But you must do the covers for your readers, and you probably nailed it with this one.
    Hope you sell tonz. And have Katelina or Jorick or Verchiel talk to Lisa: (actually he says it’s better if it’s NOT the protagonist, so… no Kately or Jorick… 😉 well, get in touch with him and launch the new cover with style!)

    • TY! I will check this out! I love character interviews 🙂

    • As for the cover, yeah, I have been hesitating for awhile because I’ve always thought different is good, but it’s to the point now where I see my books with the others in the genre and they stick out but not in the good kind of different way…all the paranormal books have people front and center on them and lots of glowy stuff. I admit, I like glowy stuff.. 😉 I was initially going to try something darker and more gothic but then I was afraid people would expect a more gothic read, which they’re not…So I went urban Fantasy instead.
