Fool's Notion Cover Reveal

Fool’s Notion cover reveal! After much deliberation in choosing and then sending back and forth with the publisher, (who did a great job, thank you Cynthia) I’m pleased to present the cover for my upcoming novel Fool’s Notion. What do you think?

If you remember, one of my readers, Jodi, won the opportunity to choose a name for my next novel. She chose the name Cordell Sweet for a buff, military type who was the hero in the novel I was writing at the time. I abandoned (for now) that project and began Fool’s Notion on the inspiration of a story someone told me several years ago and the Borax detergent box found in my laundry room.

Cordell Sweet worked perfectly for the handsome cowboy with long, smoky lashes who helps the heroine Alda — whether she wants him too, or not. Thanks Jodi!

Here’s the back cover copy:


Missouri Mules are the best there is and Alda had grown to love the creatures as she worked side by side with her pa on their farm along the banks of the Missouri River. Her pa would be hopping mad when he realized his wife and daughter had colluded behind his back to sell a pack string. It didn’t matter that they were trying to save the farm.

Alda had struck out on her own to drive the team over fifteen hundred miles. By day three, her lead mule Bessie had refused to take one more step. It was a good thing the handsome cowboy Cord had stopped by to lend a hand or Alda might still be sitting in the dust.

Now the man needed to move on so she could continue her journey. Judging by the spark in Cord’s eye … it just might take some convincing.


I’m still working on the edits, but the eBook will probably release this week and then I’ll be working toward getting the paperbacks printed. Such a learning curve!


Have a great week!
