Last Minute Cover Change

Okay. Hubs is home, and we have a cover change…back to the original…before I listened to multiple pieces of advice concerning the lack of a female representation on the cover. So, the final cover for To Have & To Hold is back to the cowboy. Only.

And the book is now available in eBook at Amazon, FREE to Kindle Unlimited members.

To Dally in My World Doesn’t Mean Sex

Of course my editor, Marva Dasef, brought up yet another one of my blind spots. I blithely use the term, ‘dally’, amongst a few other terms common to my world. “Ah…to most people, ‘dally’ means ‘hanging around’.”

Yeah, well, one of that particular word’s meanings is to act or move slowly…or a sexual liaison. But it also means to throw a couple of turns around a saddle horn.

A check in my old fashioned dictionary has this last definition, but a check using word look-up on Kindle does not provide that.

Sigh.

Bigger sigh.

Okay. Creatively sneak in the inline hint of its definition. But, for those curious, here’s a video:


The Front Cover Enigma

Okay. The front cover: It’s one of my enigma images. The cowboy is sitting on a fence. He’s in despair. He has his back to us.

The woman, a whore, is in pieces…because her life is in pieces. She only becomes solid where she touches the cowboy. But the more she touches the cowboy, the more life she finds she’s assured.
