Cover Reveal for Debra Erfert's New Novel!

I am THRILLED to be able to be part of Debra Erfert's cover reveal.  Her new novel, Relative Evil, will be released JULY 25! I can hardly wait!

....drum roll....

Isn't it gorgeous? I love it!

Here's the back copy:

When life imitates art—life gets deadly.

Claire Abney, twenty-five and single, doesn’t necessarily believe that her new stepmother deliberately causes her dad to have accidents bad enough he breaks his bones. Well, maybe she does after she sees the way Adelaide marinates in the praise she gets from being the perfect caregiver. As an author of two weak-selling romance novels, Claire turns to her writing as a coping mechanism. She loosely bases the evil villain in her new suspense on her stepmother, giving her an obscure mental illness, Munchhausen Syndrome by Proxy. Not wanting her family to find out that she wrote about their lives, Claire uses a man’s pseudonym, and her publisher furnishes her the man—for book signings. How do you spell “love interest?”

After Claire’s dad has a heart attack and dies, she suspects Adelaide committed murder, but trying to find the evidence may be impossible. Being the obstinate, sometimes oddly dressed woman, Claire vows to either prove her stepmother is truly sick, or a cold-blooded murderer before another member of her family is targeted.

I am so excited for Debra and if this sounds like a book you'd like to read, (and since I got to read an advance copy I KNOW you're going to want to read it. It's so good!) then you can get all the updates on her blog here or her author's Facebook page here.  

Debra and her publishing company will be having an online release party on Saturday, July 26th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. I know I'll be there! I can't wait!

Julie, thank you so much for revealing my book cover. It's my first! My husband says it looks "sinister", and I think I agree with him!

I'll try to attend the online release party! then I'll just have to figure out how to get my copy autographed...

Oh! I hope I have some friends attend. I'd feel so lonely if only people from the publisher make comments. And that might be the most likely scenario. But at least I talked them down from having a three hour cruise--uh, party, to a two hour event.
