Cover Reveal: A Bottle of Glass Hearts

I am soooooooo excited for today’s cover reveal!

It is absolutely stunning, but what makes me even more excited is that it’s from one of my new I-must-read-everything-you-write authors. (In fact, I bought all of her ebooks for Christmas just a few days ago and can’t wait devour ALL of them.)

Earlier this year I was blessed with the opportunity to beta read her novel (which I can’t wait to find out when it’s releasing), and let me tell you, it was one of the best books I have ever read. It was as if she took my life story and just placed it in her character.

I. Felt. All. The. Feels. (I might even have begged the author over a certain situation to not let it go the way it appeared to be going. Hehe!)

So yesterday I was beyond thrilled when she shared her cover for an upcoming short story collection. Five stories in one awesome book.

Though it doesn’t have an official synopsis yet, I’ll share the names of the stories from her Facebook page below.

Without further delay, here is the lovely RJ Conte’s upcoming short story collection, A Bottle of Glass Hearts!

Eeeekk! Just look at it! So pretty!

RJ shared on Facebook that she “had original art – concocted up in my head, and made a reality by the lovely, amazing, talented Julia Mae Busko.”

She did an amazing job! I absolutely can’t wait to read all these short stories, which include the following:

  • Gem
  • His Bottle of Tears
  • Curls for Rae
  • Aine, Starwarrior
  • and a story that is in the works this month – TBA!

Keep an eye for a release date (she’s looking at late February) and her Facebook page where she will be sharing about all the main characters today!
