Guest Post by Natalie Corbett-Sampson, Author of It Should Have Been a #GoodDay!!

I would like to welcome my wonder and amazing friend Natalie Corbett Sampson to my blog today!!! Yes, I did tell her she could write about octopi, I was not kidding!!  But she went with something else!!

I can't wait to read the book Natalie!!
****
Thanks for having me Jess! You suggested I could write about ‘anything’. My first choice was octopi. They are so awesome. But then I got lost in a dark hole of youtube videos of colour changing eight legged sea creatures and realized not only is it probably not the most on-topic conversation but also if I started your readers down that road they may never come back.

Then I thought, what about the cover? No one has talked about the cover yet! Everyone knows you don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but com’on. Everyone judges books by the covers!

My beautiful cover was done by Valerie Bellamy from Dog-Ear Book Design (http://www.dog-earbookdesign.com). I met Valerie in Starbucks, with my own designs and ideas. She was very polite and looked at my sketches, wrote down my thoughts and after a few weeks she sent me some designs. The first two were based on my ideas, lots of font and bold colour, they were quite nice. The third blew me away. It had nothing to do with what we had discussed. It was perfect.

What does a bird have to do with the story? The bird can be connected to the mascot of a commonly used social media platform. It’s also in reference to Harper Lee’s story that Henry and Thomas read for their English class. Valerie imagined Henry as the mockingbird, the innocent that is targeted and destroyed with violence. (And when I say that, don’t think I’m spoiling any part of the story!) I loved these connections so much that I changed Henry’s Tuesday shirt from red to blue. Well first we tried to change the cover tones from blue to red but it totally didn’t work.

I also loved the way Valerie used space to convey emotion. The lack of content on the cover, around the smaller font, the bird, is haunting and beautiful. The single feather on the back always makes me think of a void, the silence of that feather settling down, as if the world has stopped around it. It is the perfect echo of the story.

And in the end I did get to have a part in the design. The font Valerie used for the cover did not have a hashtag, so I got to draw one. Yay me!


*****
Thank you Natalie for visiting my blog today!!  I love the cover!!  It Should Have Been A #GoodDay is available on February 28th, but you can pre-order HERE through Amazon!!

“I don’t think that I want my butt to look hot,” Jill replied, craning her neck to look over her shoulder at her own ass. “Is it like ‘hey I am desperate to get laid hot’ or just ‘lifted and separated hot’?”
“Definitely lifted and separated. Relax. Gregory is a nice guy, and a total gentleman. He isn’t going to go all psycho on you.”
Jill sighed and changed the subject. “Is that a new top?”
Renee looked down at the leather crop top she wore and grinned. “Yes, and it’s vegan leather.”
“Vegan leather? Isn’t that an oxymoron?”
Renee shrugged, “I guess, but I got it half off because it had a tiny thread coming through. I fixed it in, like, two seconds. Hey, I got to get going. You’re meeting Gregory at the steakhouse?”
Jill blew out a long breath. “Yes. It’s a good thing I’m not wearing vegan leather, huh?”
Renee laughed. “I’d love a steak but my date’s a vegetarian.”
“I don’t know how that’s going to work for you,” Jill replied. “You’re the person who eats a pound of bacon at breakfast.”
“If he’s the one it would be worth giving up bacon.”
Jill doubted any man was worth giving up bacon for.

Release Day Blitz for Beautifully Undone by Susan Griscom!!


Title: Beautifully Undone
Series #: The Beaumont Brothers  Author: Susan Griscom
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult Coming of Age
He was broken.
Full of hate and sorrow.
Asher Beaumont never asked for much in life. All he wanted was to play his guitar, write music, and be recognized and loved by his father. Unfortunately, that last desire was never realized. The bastard died when Asher was just a kid. Then thirteen years later, his mother dies of a brain tumor, shattering him even more and leaving him hating everyone around him, except for his two best friends, Melody Stevens and her brother, Teddy.

Melody Stevens has crushed on her best friend, Asher Beaumont her entire life. But it’s always been a secret passion. Never something she’d act upon. But when she tells Asher she’s prepared—and determined—to lose her virginity to a guy he considers to be nothing more than a cad who sleeps with anything that wears a skirt, her best friend offers her a proposition she can’t really refuse.
When Asher stumbles across a letter left by his mother before her death, begging him to seek out his half-brothers, he and Melody begin a journey of discovery. Their travels lead them to the two brothers he has spent his life despising because they had the life he always wanted. While on their trip, they discover a miracle they never, ever considered. 

A stand-alone, book 3 of The Beaumont Brothers Series with a HEA for Adults 18+

Melody
“I’ll let you buy me that Irish Coffee you promised me now. I think my fingers are about to fall off they’re so cold,” I said.
“If I remember correctly, and I think I do, it was you who offered to buy me the coffee.”
I shrugged. “Yeah, but you have more money than I do.”
The coffee house was jam-packed with wall-to-wall people. It was Friday night, and the city was already booming with weekend tourists. We made our way to the counter after standing in line for about ten minutes, and Ash ordered two Irish Coffees, one heavy on the whipped cream; that was his. The more whipped cream, the better as far as he was concerned.
“Mmmm…” I hummed as the smooth, sweet cream mixed with the coffee and whiskey goodness warmed my throat. Ash laughed, and I frowned when I looked up at him as his finger swiped across the tip of my nose. He held up his whipped-cream-covered fingertip before sticking it in his mouth, sucking it dry. My stomach jittered then knotted. Wow. He was so sexy. I’d always thought so, but now, in this light, his green eyes twinkled and his tanned face made him look just like one of the cover model guys I drooled over in my escape world of reading romance novels. My heart thumped and I had to look away, trying to focus on something less…Asher.
I needed to concentrate on something real. Not that Ash wasn’t real. But, I mean, a real, possible relationship. The only problem was, most guys I knew were friends with Ash and always treated me as if I were one of the guys, just like Ash did.
I once overheard Asher tell Brent that he’d pummel the life out of any guy who ever tried to get into my pants. Not that getting into my pants was ever going to happen with any of those runts, but he did manage to scare the crap out of all of them whenever the subject of me came up. It used to make me feel good and special that he cared about me and wanted to protect me, but now that we were both into our twenties, I just wished he’d let up a bit. How would I ever find a boyfriend with Asher’s daunting threats forever fresh on every male’s mind this side of the bay bridge? You’d almost think that Ash wanted me for himself, but I knew that would never happen. His feelings for me were strong, as strong as mine for him, but his were more of a sister/brother pull that kept us close, not the physical attraction mine were.
“Hi, Ash,” Lisa Stone sidled up against Ash’s arm. “So sorry about your mom. Let me know if I can do anything for you, okay?”
“Thanks,” Ash responded and eyed me over the edge of his cup as he took a sip.
“Hi, Mel. Heard you two playing in the courtyard earlier. You are so good,” she said, placing her hand upon Ash’s shoulder. “When are you performing again at the Tank?”
“Tomorrow night,” Ash supplied.
“I’ll be there. See you then.” She turned and headed toward a table in the back where a small group of men and women were gathered.
I turned in the other direction, not wanting to watch Ash’s gaze follow Lisa’s rear end.
“What?” he said when he finally glanced back at me.
“Nothing,” I said, rolling my eyes.
“Don’t give me that, ‘nothing,’ Mel. She’s nice.”
“Sure. Whatever you say.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Nothing!”
“I know you better than you know yourself, Melody Grace Stevens, and when you say nothing and roll your eyes, there is definitely something.”
“Okay. It just seems like she’s throwing herself and her very large breasts at you all the time. It’s rather embarrassing how she comes across so needy.”
“Needy? I thought it was sexy.”
“You would. Look, I don’t care. It’s none of my business who with or where you get your jollies off.” If that’s the type of woman Ash was attracted to, no wonder he and I had never become anything more than friends.
I turned to see Alex walk through the door. Ash stiffened and sucked up the rest of his coffee. “Are you about finished?”
“No, what’s your hurry?” I asked, only halfway finished with my coffee.
I glanced back toward Alex. He wore a light grey denim shirt, the sleeves rolled up just below his elbows, showing off some cool tattoos on his forearms. The veins protruding as he reached up and swiped his hair off his forehead. He looked good. Really good. Almost as good as Ash. I quickly averted my eyes, not wanting him to know I’d been ogling him as he headed over toward us.
Ash knew Alex from way back in high school, but the few times I’d seen them both in the same room together, Ash always seemed a bit put off or uneasy.
“Hey, Melody. I’ve been looking for you,” Alex said, putting his arm around my shoulder when he reached us. Ash looked on, frowning.
“I’m right here,” I said with a slight giggle.
“I have two tickets to see Maroon Five at the Shoreline next Friday night. Wanna go?”
“Okay. Sure,” I said, sucking in my bottom lip, dying inside with excitement at the prospect of a real date with a real guy. I mean someone other than Asher Beaumont. Ash and I went everywhere together, so they never seemed like dates. And they weren’t, of course.
