In Appreciation - new cover

Heh heh heh. Ellora's Cave have sent me the cover for my first story with them - In Appreciation of their Cox - and I can't help giggling every time I see it. It's shuffled up onto Page 2 of the Coming Soon Screen and is heading toward release on October 14th.

Here's the official blurb:

“Well, what we really need are small girls who are good at shouting and like hanging out with tall, muscular blokes.”
“Sign me up!”
And that was how I got into coxing.

Eight tall, muscular men straining every sinew, and one itty-bitty young woman urging them on with all her might.

Joanna is the coxswain for a British university rowing crew, all of them fit and muscular and hot. Although she’s fantasized about each of the men, she has always been careful to keep her relations with them strictly platonic. But now she’s leaving for a new job—and they’re going to have a farewell party that they will never forget, as all Jo’s wildest dreams come true on this final night together.

Yes - eight men! I outdid myself, I must say. Eight men and a lot of filthy fun.

Oh yes - and I've got an Ellora's Cave author page! Yay!  I intend to fill it with lovely goodies (and pink paddles) over the years to come.

But what I'm wondering is ... Why has nobody mentioned the pun in the title?

Joanna - !

I can't believe you called it that either, that's hilarious. Brass balls, Janine :)

(that's just the sound of me sitting down...)

I certainly smiled when I read the title!

And what a hot blurb/premise. It sounds relish-worthy (I quite just made that word up) and delightful—I'm looking forward to the release!

Brass balls, Janine :)

And there's your title for the sequel (you know, where the protag manages an all-male trumpet and trombone orchestra that plays at formal dances).

Janine Ashbless said...

Thank you Emerald!

And giggles for Jeremy's suggestion! But maybe, just maybe, eight is enough...

Now THAT is a cover. One a person could sink her teeth into. ; )
