Cover Reveal for "One Bad Apple"

Here it is!!!


My cover artist has done it again!  Could this cover be any more gorgeous?  I think not!  And it so totally screams "Snow White set in the Old West," doesn't it?  Plus a little hint of Hamlet in there, since One Bad Apple has a lot of Hamlet overtones.

What exactly is One Bad Apple about?  Well, it's about seven white orphans who are reluctantly allowed to join an all-black wagon train headed to Kansas.  The orphans just want to find their only remaining adult relative, a homesteading uncle.  But they get all mixed up with the people in charge of the wagon train: a minister, his daughter, and his wife, who is a healer.  One of the orphans dreams of being a doctor, and he hopes the healer will be able to teach him how to cure sick people.  But instead, he discovers she has a sinister plan to dispose of her husband and stepdaughter... and she intends to place the blame on this orphan.

One Bad Apple is set to release on July 28, and I will be calling for advance readers and setting up a blog tour in a few weeks, so keep a lookout for those posts!  Meanwhile, you can mark One Bad Apple as a "want to read" here on Goodreads.

  3. Ooooh, this is one of my favorite of your covers, I think. Also I love how it not only screams "Snow White" but also totally has a little bit of those Hamlet vibes!

  4. This cover is gorgeous! I'm looking forward to reading it (the book, not the cover :D), and I just requested my library to buy the other ones so I can read those as well!

    1. Thank you, Samantha! And wow! That's so cool -- asking a library to purchase an author's books is so wonderful because it means not only will you get to read them (assuming the library does purchase them), but other people will get to as well!
