Cover Reveal: Puzzle Me This


I've always loved Reese Dante covers so I was thrilled when Dreamspinner assigned her to do the cover for my novella "Puzzle Me This".  I love how it turned out.  The image of Alex, in his wheelchair, following Luke and Trevor (the dog) on a path is perfect for the story.  And notice how the crossword grid works into it -- clever, right?  ;-)  And of course the smiling face (Alex) is just gorgeous.

Here's the official blurb for this title:

Luke Schumaker  designs computer games,  working from his home.  Every day he walks his dog in the woods nearby, never suspecting that someone is watching who is completely smitten. The watcher is Alex Shaw, and he too works from home, designing logic and crossword puzzles. Alex’s options are limited: he’s too shy to approach Luke and his wheelchair won’t  let him follow into the woods. His solution? Secret messages for Luke in the crosswords he writes for the local paper.  When Luke decodes them, romance begins, but then they face greater puzzles, like Alex’s interfering sister, and what commitment to a man in a wheelchair really takes. And, most puzzling of all, how do you know if love is real?

This novella will be published from Dreampsinner in the Sept/Oct 2013 timeframe.  No firm date yet!
