Today I am so pleased to welcome Katey Hawthorne to Joyfully Jay. Katey has come as part of the Coastal Magic Convention Blog Tour to share a cover reveal for her upcoming release, Summit Springs: Heart Space. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!

Thanks so much for having me at Joyfully Jay for the Coastal Magic Convention blog tour. I can’t wait to see some of y’all in Daytona Beach! In the middle of a mid-Atlantic winter that’s sounding better than ever right now, lemme tell you.

Katey Hawthorne Coastal Magic badgeIt’s been a slow year for me as a writer but I’m so excited to have something brand new to share today. The wonderful J.A. Rock and I have an installation in the wonderful Summit Springs sapphic fiction series coming up in January. If you like contemporary F/F, especially intensely opposites attract, whoooooooo, we got you covered next month!

Picture it:

  • A bright-eyed yoga instructor who, through her own desire to open as many hearts as possible, might be about to put on the Fyre Festival of yoga retreats.
  • A freelance marketing executive with a half-ton of emotional baggage who’s determined to help make the retreat happen.
  • And a really, really flatulent rescue bulldog named Beau Brummel.

What could possibly go wrong?

Pre-order Summit Springs: Heart Space by me and J.A. Rock here at Amazon, or get it when it comes out on the 3rd! And without further ado, here it is, the cover featuring our ridiculously nerdy-and-cute yoga instructor, Niamh Hunter. Thanks so much to Alexandria Corza for the cover!

Katey Hawthorne loves queer romance. Originally from the Appalachian foothills of West Virginia, she currently lives in Pittsburgh with her family of one other human and many furry creatures. In her spare time, she enjoys travel, comic books, B-movies, loud music, video games, Epiphones, and Bushmills. Her favorite causes include animal rescue and bisexual representation in media. She is an unashamed fangirl and collects nerdy tattoos like she’s trying to prove it.
