SILVERHAWK Re-Released--and $25 GC Contest


I am absolutely elated that SILVERHAWK, my first published book, re-releases today through Amazon Encore. The cover is a tiny bit different but now the covers of both books have a similar look, along with the same type faces and fonts for the title and my name. I'm excited about that, as well the bars across the bottom cover with the series identification. This is the first book in the Knights of Destiny series.

Here's a look at that adjusted cover. If you can find the big change I haven't mentioned, you'll be in a drawing for a $25 Amazon Gift Card. The 'contest' will run for at least a week, so you'll have time to join the fun.

The book was a 2014 Rone Award Finalist.






Here's the buy link, just in case. LOL.

  1. That's easy! On the original cover his torso is bare, in the new cover he's wearing a shirt, the second major difference I saw at first glance is the title is in silver on the original cover and in gold on the new.

    3. It's a bit confusing because I have the new cover beside the old one. But you got it right the first time with the added shirt. I know! Jimmy looked so good on that first one--oh, well, he looks good with a shirt, too :)

  6. Yes, your hero has covered his wonderful chest (sigh) and your name is in a different font (nice change). And you still have Jimmy Thomas on both covers. :) Goo luck on your re-release!
