It’s Here…

Guess what I have?

That’s right. It’s a finished, final, hardcover of TIME BETWEEN US!

I captured the moment it arrived on video. If you want to meet my good friend, Heidi — who read the very first draft of this story — and my husband, Mike — who read the first draft and every one that followed (poor guy) — check it out! It’s really long but my friends and I had fun making it.


Or, you can just skip to the beauty shots.

These photos don’t do it justice. You have to touch this paper and see the sheen to truly appreciate it. You guys, it’s so beautiful. Huge thanks to Whitney Manger, the designer at Hyperion, for creating such a stunning cover.


Love this color blue! And the silver type… Wow. Love.


This is what it looks like on the inside:



This is what you’ll find on the back:



Oh, those lovely quotes in the pink type get me every time. These two incredibly talented authors — Elizabeth Scott and Melissa Marr — read Time Between Us and said such nice things about it! I’m so honored, and grateful for their support.

I doubt I’ll ever forget how it felt to read Elizabeth’s initial email, where she shared her thoughts about this story and the impact it had on her. I read it over and over, and was simply moved beyond words. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Both Melissa and her daughter (who happens to be a runner!) read Time Between Us while they were on vacation, rock climbing in Yosemite (you have to read this book to know how perfect that is). I was completely blown away by their enthusiasm for Anna Greene and her daring adventure. Thank you for your lovely words, Melissa!

In honor of these two fabulous women, I’m giving away something I know you’ll want: their latest books!


Enter to win a prize pack that includes:
* A hardcover of Elizabeth Scott’s Miracle

    WOW! It’s awesome to see them finished and ready to go. You get them so much earlier than readers! (which I totally get – you wrote the book lol). Congrats!

    Look at those beautiful books! OMG it’s so real! I can’t wait to have my own finished copy on the shelf. 😀

    I think it’s really cool that you got the moment of seeing your final book, for the first time, on video! And it was such a neat thing to share with everyone. I thought it was really fun to watch the three of you see the book for the first time and the comparisons to the ARC were cool! I am so excited for you and I absolutely adore TIME BETWEEN US! I am impatiently awaiting my gorgeous, finished copy and it will live happily on my shelf :0)

    Thanks for sharing your moment with us!

    Cover is beautiful, so romantic. It looks like a movie poster 😉
    I saw Polish, UK and US edition and I must admit that I like US cover the most.
    I can’t wait to read ,,Time between us” (I’ll try to get the US version, because this is only edition with hardcover and, as I said, I fell in love with cover at first sight ;)) Of course, I’ll try my luck at giveaway, keep your fingers crossed for me 😉

  7. Thank you! And yes, fingers crossed. Good luck!
