Celebrating Evie!



CASTING CALL NOTICE:
Seeking actress for role of ditzy former Vegas showgirl Sugar Dupont. Must possess strong vocals, outgoing personality and great gazongas.


Well, two out of three ain't bad. A showbiz veteran Evie Parish, knows she has the chops to sing and dance with the best. A Wonderbra should take care of the rest.

YOUR FUTURE PARTNER:
Arch, aka Charles Dupont, a doting older husband.


THE GIG:
Eight days of smooching, fawning, and otherwise making a PDA spectacle of yourselves on a Caribbean cruise.


AND... THE CATCH:
Arch is one of a team of former con men staging a sting to catch a grifter--and under his stage makeup, he's the sexiest hunk ever to don a fake moustache.


This will either be the role of her lifetime or the end of her career.

Look what I got! The art department at Harlequin (HQN) finished my book cover for my May 2007 release, ALL ABOUT EVIE. I'm over the moon! I think they did a great job of conveying the tone of the story. I'm also hot on the back cover copy created by the marketing department. Thank you HQN! I'm currently working hard on revisions. I know this book is coming out next May. But somehow seeing the actual cover makes it REAL. So excited. Wa-hoo!

That's a WONDERFUL cover. I love it! Congratulations!
Nancy Henderson said…
It looks great! I wondered what Evie would look like all these months! She's fun and quirky, exactly as I pictured.
Jordan Summers said…
Terrific cover, Beth. Very cute and eye catching. People are going to snatch it up. :D
Beth Ciotta said…
I am ecstatic, Bruno. When I first saw it I thought, wow! I'm glad you like it. Actually you'd probably enjoy this story. Funny and sexy. Starts off in Jersey, takes off in the Caribbean. And as you can see from the blurb, revolves around an industry you know well. Er, entertainmnet, not grifting. LOL

Anyhow, like Buzz, I'm over the moon. :)
Beth Ciotta said…
Glad you like the cover, Cheryl. Thanks so much! I'm really curious as to how it will hit readers.

Thumbs up from Nancy. Yay! They did capture fun and quirky, didn't they? I'm thrilled!
Beth Ciotta said…
From your mouth, Jordan. :) I'm a big believer in that packaging effects sales. My first reaction upon seeing the cover was an enthusiastic one. I'm hoping readers are equally intrigued!
Tori Lennox said…
That's a fantastic cover!!! Very eye-catching! And the book sounds great, too! :)
T-Lo said…
WOW, BETH, WOW! I certainly share your excitement and totally agree with you on the fact that now you see the cover, it makes it all so more real. Wow wow wow! This is truely exciting.
FeyRhi said…
Congrats Beth!! The cover gods were smiling down on ya. *G* It looks beautiful, what a great job they did for you. The story sounds great but I have to add... I LOVE those shoes!!!
Gabriele C. said…
That's a very pretty cover.

No chance it'll get snarked by the Smart Bitches, though. *grin*
Beth Ciotta said…
Tori and T-lo (Taylor *g*), thank you! I'm glad you like it!

FeyRhi, so funny. I zoomed in on those shoes too. :) I used to wear shoes like that on stage all the time. Still love the look of them, but now high-top sneakers are my shoe of choice, much to Steve's disappointment. LOL
Beth Ciotta said…
Gabriele, me no wanna get snarked! So this is a good thing, yes? *g*
Roni said…
Absolutely a GREAT cover Beth! Congrats!
Maureen said…
Awesome cover!*gopher dance* isn't nice when they not only catch the eye but also fit the story? LOL Long live the wonderbra! sounds like another great read from you!
Penelope Marzec said…
Congratulations on the great cover!
Beth Ciotta said…
Waving to Roni and Penny, fellow writers and NJRW members! Thanks so much ladies. :)

Maureen, I'll join you in that gopher dance. As to the Wonderbra, it was an essential at that height of my character actress days. I still own one or four. :)

Great cover Beth! The cover makes it look like it's going to be a fun book. Love the shoes, I think I might have them.
Beth Ciotta said…
Elsie, so far those 'shoes' are a huge hit! Gonna have to find me a pair for booksigning purposes. :)
Kelly Parra said…
Beth, that is a stunning cover!! Woo-hoo!! It's going to fly off the shelves. So happy for you! =D
Beth Ciotta said…
Thanks, Kelly. Glad you like it. I'm hoping it flies off of the shelves too. :)
Stacie said…

P.S. Haven't written anything besides an English paper, sadly. And it defintely wasn't worth celebrating! :)
Charlene Teglia said…
Oh, fun and bright and eye-catching! Great cover!
