Cover Revealing Time! Thundering Luv!

•February 12, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I know it’s not summer, but it’s the week for lovers, showing love, giving love, just plain talking about ‘luv’.

My summer LUV series started with Flutter Of Luv and now this summer I will be releasing, THUNDERING LUV, and boy is it a summer ride of turbulence!

So while the story is in editing, and my editor and I are shining it up for you, I wanted to share a sneaky peek of the cover, compliments of the wonderful, Emma Michaels, who designed it.

1….2….3…. Ta! Da!

THUNDERING LUV (Short Story-YA Romance) 

Jewel has always been able to get the guy she wanted. The starting jock on the football team, the team captain on the basketball team, and the lead swimmer on the swim team. Problem is, she didn’t find them the least bit exciting. Was she cold or a she-wolf for guys? Colin thought so, and he’d do anything to bring her down a peg or two. When these two collide on the sandy beach during their mixed up summer vacation,  sparks fly, making this a summer neither will forget.


Release Date: June 1st, 2013

Format: Ebook Only Release, but will be part of a print book in 2014 that includes 3 short YA Summer Romances by LM Preston to include (Flutter Of Luv, Thundering Luv, and Double Trouble Luv)

Back cover blurb:

Tagline: Something evil this way comes, unfortunately for it, Peter Saints is waiting.
Seventeen-year-old Peter Saints’ life stinks. But things are about to get much worse. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms.
Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give – his blood.

On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It’s the one secret the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer he hopes that will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.

So, with the holidays here, and the night before Christmas…I…Well… I haven’t done a darn thing. I’m way behind the ball on purchasing Christmas gifts. However, this year, like the ones before, my kids and family isn’t too focused on the actual ‘gifting’ part of the holidays.

We actually did the following in preparation for the holiday, INSTEAD, of buying presents.

– Made our own Christmas play (to be done for friends and family)

– Created our own dialogue on what Christmas means to us (to be shared on Christmas)

– And kept the present number to 3 per person

– Collected all the Christmas movies we want to watch on Christmas Eve

– Cooked some great assortment of Christmas Cookies

So, what have you done this holiday to celebrate?

Do tell, I need ideas for next year😀
