Want to see my next Book Cover?

vampire heart on a black backgroundMy next book, Romance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is scheduled for release on July 7, 2014.  This book looks at romantic relationships in the TV Show.  I found that every season has it’s own theme.  Some of the relationships were great and some were train wrecks, but all of them served to reinforce and illustrate the theme of that season.

My hope is that this book will be a fun, though-provoking read for Buffy fans.  There are plenty of quotes to keep us laughing and some trivia as well.  I’m very excited!  The book is $.99 and is available for preorder at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.

Here’s the back cover blurb:

Was Angel Buffy’s one true love? Or was Spike her destined one-and-only? Did she blow a good thing with Riley? Did Xander mess up and miss out with Cordelia, or was he meant to be with Anya? Which is the more tragic love story—Willow and Oz, or Willow and Tara? Was anyone rooting for Buffy’s mom to get it on with Giles?

Revisit the sometimes destructive and undeniably unforgettable relationships that make up the Buffyverse: Buffy’s intense, occasionally soul-destroying romance with Angel and why it never would have worked; her relationship with Riley, the Boy She Thought Was Normal (But Really Wasn’t); the on-again, off-again thing with Spike and why it might have been Buffy’s best bet; Xander, the jerk in nice-guy clothing, and why he and Anya were soul mates; why Willow had to lose the perfect werewolf boyfriend to find true love with Tara; and much more.

And here’s a larger look at the cover:

I have no control over the cover but I thought the art department did a great job.  Looking forward to July 7!  Of course while you wait you can always check out my first book, which also sells for .99 at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers:

    Looking forward to this one,big time! I’m a big Spike supporter and really feel that there was more depth to that relationship than the Buffy/Angel romance-will you be mentioning any of the love connections on Angel,btw?

      Hi Lady T! While writing the book I did finally understand the appeal of the Angel/Buffy relationship, but I have to salut that soon!y I’m more of a Spike girl myself 🙂 In order to keep the scope manageable, I limited the focus to Buffy the TV show – no movie, no comics, and, alas, no Angel TV series. I love the Angel TV series so maybe I’ll have to write something about that soon!
