I am SO in love with the cover for Tangled Tides.
I keep staring at it and wishing I could jump into the picture.
It's not completely finished yet so I can't reveal it in its entirety, but my publisher gave me permission to share a tiny cropped portion of it. I begged to share SOMETHING because I'm just so excited and dying to show it off. This is one small section of the current mock-up...
I know it's not much, but at least I get to share a tiny sneak peek.
Can you tell what it is?
I'd love to hear your guesses.
What would you picture the cover to look like knowing what you do about the story?
For those of you who know nothing about Tangled Tides here's the summary...

Yara Jones doesn’t believe in sea monsters—until she becomes one.

On her eighteenth birthday a hurricane hits Yara’s small island and with it blows in Treygan, a cocky blue-haired merman who claims he saved her life by turning her mer, but he could also take her life with his ability to turn things to stone, with just a touch… or kiss.

All Yara wants is to return home to her terminally sick uncle and her cool new boyfriend, Rownan. But she quickly learns that she can’t go back because her new existence—and new crush—complicate things beyond belief. Yara must open a sealed gateway between Earth and the sea creature realm, and that can only be achieved with a great sacrifice including friendship, love, and possibly even her soul. Or maybe, she hopes, that sacrifice will open the gateway to a love that’s deeper than she could ever imagine.

Rhemalda said I will probably be able to reveal the finished cover somewhere around August 22nd. It seems so far away because I'm itching to share it with all of you RIGHT NOW, but I will practice patience and be satisfied with sharing this teaser for the time being. Maybe I'll post another one next week too if you guys want to see another one?

Eeek! I'm so excited. I hope you will love it as much as I do.


  1. Ooo. I know! I know! And I'm so excited! :)

  2. Can't wait to see it. It looks like the lower half of an arm. So excited.

  3. I know! I KNOW!

    I think I know.

    It looks like the mermaid's back. Is this Yara's back?

    Plus what do the flowery designs mean? Hmm.. this is a teaser!

  4. I think it's part of an arm, too. I'm looking forward to the 22nd:)

  5. Looks so pretty! I wish you could share it now! The story sounds MAGICAL!

  6. OMG! I love it!!! I am beyond excited for you...I just am in awe and love and proud and sensationally ecstatic and over the moon and into the sea!! lol I am just so thrilled for you!

    Cannot wait to see more.

  7. All I know is that it looks wet and sparkly and mermaidish! Can't wait to see the full cover. :)

  8. Whatever it is, it's pretty...and sparkly. Just the way I like it. :)

  9. I'm going to say this is the leading merman's forearm, complete with a magical underwater tribal tattoo. Consider me sufficiently teased ;) Can't wait to see the final cover.

  10. I can't wait to read it! Tell them to hurry up and publish it!!

  11. OMG, I hope it's a tail! Fishy, finny tail. It's going to be beautiful, I can tell already!

  12. Ooh, love the teaser and summary. Can't wait to see the final cover!

  13. You tease! That is gorgeous and I'm going to guess is what happens to her tats when she's turned mer. I'm ecstatic for you!
