IT"S HERE!!!!!!!!! The Cover to TRANSCEND!!!


WOO HOO!!!! The day is here! The one I have been leading up to all week. The day I reveal the cover to Transcend.


But first - a little more about the story:

All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is an escape from his family's rigid expectations for his life; someone to inspire his music. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his life music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart. Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity.
And my first author endorsement from the author of Treasured Lies, Michelle McLean:
This Phantom of the Opera-inspired tale is hauntingly dark and achingly beautiful. A story of love, loss, and obsession set against the decadent backdrop of historic New York that sucked me in and wouldn't let go, from the first page until long after I'd finished. Ien still haunts my dreams...

And now...what we've all been waiting for. I have to thank the team at Compass Press and CP Designs for this cover. To say it is stunning is an understatement!
