I feel like there are a lot of cover reveals these days, but can you guess what appeared in my inbox this morning? You guessed it! A cover! LOL
#Pictabook will be released on February 20th, and I told my Facebook group earlier today that it’s my favourite of all the stories I wrote in 2020. It is.
Phoenix and Jules are very dear to me – Jules in particular since he’s a kindred spirit LOL.
#Pictabook is part of an in-house call from JMS Books called #Love where all stories are about finding love online.
The characters in the #Love stories can communicate with their partners on an existing platform or we could choose to make one up. I made one up. Think Goodreads, but without reviews. On PictaBook, people review their book with an image and hashtags – no text.
I wrote a post back in October when I signed the contract, where you get a peek of how it works.
Are you ready to see the cover? I think it’s cute, and the colours almost match the PictaBook logo – almost LOL
Jules Rose leads a quiet life working as a librarian. He’s happy to spend his spare time reading books and talking to his homicidal cat. What more could he wish for? But when his cozy Friday night is shattered by a friend request on his book community app, politeness gives him little choice but to accept. Jules doesn’t want to talk to anyone, but he can’t be rude. Besides, if he had to talk about something, books is the topic he’d pick.
Phoenix Ford is dyslexic and avoids everything that has to do with the written word, but when the colleague he’s trying to impress calls him stupid, he decides to convince the other man, he’s mistaken. All he needs is the right book to make him look smart, a perfect balance between intelligent and short. And who better to ask for help than a guy who loves books so much, he labeled one boner-worthy on a book app?
When Jules finds out Phoenix never has read a book from start to finish, he’s on a mission. He will find the right book, the book that will make Phoenix fall in love—with reading. Phoenix’s plan might have been to listen to the book Jules picked for him to impress his colleague, but that was before he got to know him. Talking about books is a sure way to Jules’ heart, but is it enough for him to agree to go on a date?
