The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Carrie Butler’s Cover: STRENGTH

Carrie Butler, of So, You’re a Writer has a book coming out, and today is cover release day! She was one of my first followers, and she’s a hockey fan to boot, so how could I pass up the opportunity to help out? I couldn’t. So, here’s the deal on Strength:

When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, she’s stunned. Wallace Blake is everything she’s ever wanted in a man—except he can’t touch her. His uncontrollable strength, a so-called gift from his bloodline, makes every interaction dangerous. And with a secret, supernatural war brewing among his kind, there’s no time to work it out. To keep Wallace in her life, Rena will have to risk a whole lot more than her heart.

Pretty cool stuff. The ‘he can’t touch her’ made me think of the quirky, short-lived TV show, Pushing Daisies, though the reasons for not touching are quite different, and I suspect Carrie’s story is a bit more serious.

Now, for the cover:

No fair, she photoshopped someone’s head on my body!

Pretty powerful stuff.

And if that’s not enough to hook you, there’s a trailer, too:


Very cool.

Strength is a New Adult Paranormal Romance, Book 1 of the Mark of Nexus series, available on March 7th, from Sapphire Star Publishing. Visit Carrie on her website, and check out Strength‘s page on Goodreads. March 7th looks to be an exciting day!

  1. Hah! Darn it, Jeff. I didn't think you'd recognize your body. Then again, that's what you get for posting those vacation photos last year… *Grins*

    Seriously, thank you so much. I really appreciate this! 🙂

  2. I love how supportive this community is when guys will post book covers featuring hot guys on the front. He's on my blog today, too. I'm excited for Carrie!
