Cover Reveal!

Posted Sep 12 2012, 7:00 am in , , ,

I am so excited! My editor emailed me my cover and my official release date — January 1, 2013!

It seems silly that of all the things that have happened on my publishing journey, it’s the cover that makes me squee. For some reason, seeing a cover with my name across it makes everything more real. (yes, more real than a 20-page contract or completing revisions and copy edits)

Plus, it makes me happy that the cover artists nailed it. There’s nothing I don’t like about the cover. Here it is (the official back cover copy is below the cover). What do you think? 



When a lonely teacher teams up with a handsome bartender for some outrageous acts, they both get more than they bargained for…


Learning her ex-husband is going to be a father, Quinn Adams is determined to have a baby of her own—without the partnership of a man. But her sister and friends believe she needs to focus on herself first, and step out of her comfort zone by completing a list of adventures. Challenge number one is to go on five dates within two weeks. After a few disastrous attempts, Quinn’s ready to give up—until sexy bartender Ryan O’Leary offers his assistance.


Ryan has always been the dependable one in his family, often at his expense. But lately, he’s been longing for a life—and a woman—of his own. The woman he has in mind is Quinn. Though it seems all she wants is friendship, Ryan can’t ignore the explosive chemistry he feels between them. In the hopes of becoming closer, Ryan offers to help out with Quinn’s list. But when she asks him for a serious favor, he’s afraid it will jeopardize his chance to become more than friends.

    Shannyn, what a great cover! I’m really liking the covers that don’t do faces–not sure why. Yes, there is nothing like the squee factor when you first see your name on the cover of a book. Wow! Congratulations. Can’t wait to read it!

    • Hi Nan, Thanks! I really like not having a whole face as well. As I reader, I don’t take much note, but as the author, I have a picture in my head of what Ryan looks like and if the cover had his whole face, I would probably be disappointed.
