Revealing the Cover for "My Rock and My Refuge"

Here it is!  I'm officially revealing the cover for My Rock and My Refuge, the next book in the Once Upon a Western series.  


I love the cozy, sweet feel, yet with a hint of mystery and danger.  It completely captures the feel of the book.

Here's a synopsis:

Beauty and the Beast... re-imagined...

When a German baker and her brother take jobs serving a wealthy recluse, they're only hoping to earn enough money to help their parents regain the family's bakery. But they soon learn that gold and silver aren't the only treasures to be found in the Colorado mountains.

My Rock and My Refuge is expected to release on November 8, 2022!  If you would like to get updates and release info about this book, and upcoming releases, click here to join my newsletter mailing list.  You'll never miss out on my book news that way!

    1. Thank you, Rissi! I love all the browns and pinks and greens. A beta reader described this book as "cowboy cottagecore" and I think this cover really reflects that vibe.

    1. Thank you, Hayden! Can't have a BATB retelling without having roses on the cover (and in the book), right? And I love the way the house looks a little like a castle.

  5. Let me be bold, brash, and sufficiently wrapped in an erroneous sense of self-importance to suggest some modifications to your blurb:
    "(Baker's name) and her brother (his name) join the employ of a wealthy recluse in order to redeem their parents' dreams. However, the Colorado mountains (or life in the Colorado mountains) will challenge them in ways beyond their understanding, and offer treasures beyond mere silver and gold."

    That was my first stab at it--and I'm handicapped by my ignorance of the finer points of the story. I thought the original blurb lacked some zing or hook--but it may be perfect for that genre with which I'm not very familiar. As always, my suggestions are free and probably worth no more than the asking price.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Stanley! Fear not -- this is not the cover blurb. This is just two sentences to accompany the cover reveal so people can find out the bare bones of what it's about :-) I'll keep your suggestions in mind!
