This month, I’m interviewing an industry professional, the editor-in-chief of Del Rey Books, my editor Tricia Narwani. We will delve into the process of how a cover is designed. The cover in question is mine, Kept, which comes out today from Ballantine Books. The process for the first cover in the series, Coveted, was actually a learning process.

Both women share the duty of dealing with shape shifting pumas, both heroines share the duty of dealing with spies, only in Burning for Derrick is my hero an ex spook.
Those intense, hypnotic eyes held hers. Her heart kicked up a few beats, stealing her breath away. As he started to dip his head, Shay stood there, frozen. What now… His mouth, so warm, brushed against hers. She gasped and then almost wished she hadn’t as he used that opportunity to tease the inside of her lips with his tongue, moving deeper and deeper. His hands came around her waist, tugging her closer. This is a bad idea… The warning was already screaming in her head. She couldn’t give him what he needed.

The Chess Putnam series is a cross between Ghostbusters and Escape From New York, with an awesome punk rock soundtrack, black magic, greasers, drugs, human sacrifices, and a black 1969 Chevelle. It kicks off with UNHOLY GHOSTS, with the next two books in the series, UNHOLY MAGIC and CITY OF GHOSTS, then Book 4, SACRIFICIAL MAGIC.
