Today's book is one I read many versions of. From the earlier drafts, right down to the final content edits. The author is one of my oldest critique partners and beta readers, and a very dear friend. I'm so happy to have been there along all the stages of her journey with this book.

With two guys to choose from-and believe me, even in the early days we both had problems picking which guy we thought should get the girl-a great cast of characters to fall in love with, and a story line that involves pirates and a biblical prophecy, what more could you want? What book am I talking about?

If the cover isn't enough to grab your attention, how about the blurb?

A power as old as King Solomon awakens when a seventeen-year-old girl marks the brooding hot abductor ordered to seize her. 

Addie Heaton’s not your average high school student. Orphaned at two, she’s spent most of her life reading the emotions of others. It’s a little trick she likes to call color-vision. But lately, a stranger has been trailing her, putting off shades of black and red—colors Addie hasn’t seen since the night her parents were killed—colors Addie never wanted to see again. 
But when Addie comes face to face with Conal Reed, owner of the terrifying shades, she learns her stranger’s a little different too. He’s brooding hot, mysterious, and all too elusive. Conal loves to materialize, and then vanish at all the wrong times. Nice. 
After years of keeping her ability a secret, Addie’s found another person with gifts, someone who may know what she really is. But Conal’s not talking. He’s having more fun showing up uninvited, teasing her senses, and disappearing at all the wrong times. Instead of finding answers, Addie finds herself reconsidering ever being alone and naked again.

  1. I very much enjoyed THE BONE TREATY! It's a real treat to be in on the process with other writers, to see the transformation from early drafts to published book, and to celebrate with a friend.

    1. I totally agree, Katie. The transformation process is truly amazing, especially when you are getting great feedback from your readers.

      And there is nothing like celebrating with a friend!
