A Sneak Peak at My New Book - THE PASTOR'S WIFE

If I had a drum, I'd roll it right now. So pretend with me... announcing... TA DA!

My new book cover!

Isn't this just the prettiest thing? It makes me happy every time I see it. God has blessed my socks off with a great publisher (Abingdon Press), a fabulous editor (Barbara Scott) and a genius design team (if I knew all your names, I'd mention them).

The Pastor's Wife releases in March 2010. But for now, here's a little taste:

He loves me . . . he loves me not . . .

Maura Sullivan thought she knew what she was getting into when she married soon-to-be pastor Nick Shepherd. But when “the other woman” in her marriage turned out to be her husband's congregation, she ran. Three years later, she’s back in the small community of Granger, Ohio, for the reading of a will that names both her and Nick as beneficiaries. Now Maura must face the husband – and the congregation – she left behind.

If you're looking for great fiction and can't wait until my book's available - LOL - check out the new fiction line from Abingdon Press. Contemporary, historical, suspense... there's something for everyone!

Amazing cover! It makes me want to run out and buy this book right now.

Lori Benton said...

I like it, especially the "love me, love me not" flower and falling petal. That's a strong design element. This cover would catch my eye on the shelf.

kewl...sounds interesting. Love the cover, even without reading the blurb you get it if you've ever, expectantly plucked petals off of a daisy...

Abingdon's done a great job on covers, haven't they? I just posted my new cover image on my blog also.
Glad to be a fellow New Abingdonian.

Great cover!

As a writer I KNOW there's more to a book than it's cover...but I still gravitate to the ones that look nice :)

Sherrie Ashcraft said...

I absolutely love the cover, Jennifer! Especially the way the church becomes the "I" with the spire dot. As a former pastor's wife, I'm really looking forward to this one! Great job!!

Debbie Fuller Thomas said...

The cover is beautiful, it looks intriguing, and (having been a pastor's wife) I can truly identify with the protagonist's urge to run! Congratulations Jennifer.

Michelle Sutton said...

Isn't it great when a publisher does a great job on the outside, too.
