Remember that gorgeous cover I revealed a couple of months back? The one made by Zathyn Priest? Well, I'm using it for a different story, because he just had to go and make a new cover and I HAD to have it. Looking at the picture, you can see why! Other than missing a tattoo, he's perfect as Dean McQueen, the lead singer of Black Hurricane.
Speaking of, you may be wondering when the book will be released. All I know is that I sent in the final edits today, it's been forwarded to formatting and the MLR Press site says it'll be out in August. I know! It's almost August!
Want to know what it's about? Okay, here's the blurb:
Twenty-three year old Jasper Jones fell in love with Dean McQueen at fourteen, but after a disastrous relationship, Jazz would like nothing better than to see the rock star choke on his own vomit.
After a catastrophic reunion, Dean seems bent on destroying Jazz’s life. It all started when an impromptu bar performance ended up on YouTube and Jazz became an internet sensation overnight. The name “Jazdean” keeps popping up in headlines and the paparazzi stalk his every move. To make matters worse, Jazz is about to end up on the streets for the second time in his life.
In a desperate attempt to keep his home, Jazz signs a deal with Dean’s band, Black Hurricane, to perform at a couple of concerts. It feels like one of Dean’s feeble attempts to get Jazz back, but painted into a corner like he is, Jazz has no choice.

There you go :) I cannot wait to share it with the world! It's 79k long, which means it's a little longer than Absolutely Eric (78k) and a lot longer than A Life Without You (73k).
It deserves to be displayed a little bigger, yeah?
