A REVIEW I HAD TO SHARE...

I have a real problem with the packaging of my November book, Wedded in a Whirlwind. The cover is light, air, movement -- a joyful moment. (And the fact that the hero is dressed in white tie and tails like a competitor in Strictly Come Dancing rather than the morning coat more usually worn at a formal wedding leaves me frankly bemused.)

I was concerned that readers would look at that cover and then, when they read the book think, "What?"

Well so far Catherine Witner at Romantic Times has given it 4.5 stars and the accolade "...exceptional emotional honesty."

And now Merrimon Books has described it as as a "Double delight!" with "...a unique inner and outer landscape."

"WEDDED IN A WHIRLWIND captures the reader's attention immediately with a combination of emotion and dramatic fast-paced action that will keep readers up late at night wanting to discover how these two can possibly escape.

Liz to be honest I don't really pay that much attention to the covers of books because I know that authors don't really have that much say over them.

I loved Wedded in a Whirlwind! Like it even better than Belle and Ivo's story! The covers catch my eye, but I figured out a long time ago that they don't always match the story inside so I never buy based on the cover. The relationship and growth of both Jago and Miranda was tremendous. I'm not sure the title was the best choice and am sure the cover was not, but I'm not in the business of marketing books, so what do I know. I just know I loved the story! Thanks for a great read Liz!

It really was a fab story, Liz. Those reviews were more than well deserved.

Hope the glow lasts for ages :o)

Nope - I don't go by covers either. Or titles, to be quite honest.

It's the LIZ FIELDING on the spine that does it for me every time.

Congrats Liz on the wonderful reviews! It's a pretty cover but like others I go for the Author when buying my books.
