Every once in a while, I need to shake things up. For instance, I’ll switch up my pink lipstick for red, wear high heel boots instead of ballet flats, or even cut bangs. One time, I actually dyed my hair blonde. It wasn’t the result I had hoped for, but it was certainly a change. If I’m allowed to change my appearance on a whim, shouldn’t my books have the same opportunity? I certainly think so, which is why I gave my fourth book baby, How Do You Know? a cover change.
Nothing within the pages has changed, it’s still the book that got five stars from Readers’ Favorite, Chick Lit Central, Chick Lit Plus, The Book Bag, The Book Chick, Books Etc. and more, but I think it just has a prettier face. And you can never be too pretty!
Life doesn’t happen on a schedule, there are no deadlines in love, and age is just a number.
On the eve of her thirty-ninth birthday, Maggie Piper doesn’t look, act, or feel much different than she did at twenty-nine, but with her fortieth birthday speeding toward her like a freight train, she wonders if she should. The fear of a slowing metabolism, wrinkling of her skin, and the ticking of her biological clock leaves Maggie torn between a desire to settle down like most of her similarly aged peers and concern that all is not perfect in her existing relationship. When a spontaneous request for a temporary “break” from her live-in boyfriend results in a “break-up,” Maggie finds herself single once again and only twelve months from the big 4.0.
As Maggie reenters the New York City dating jungle, suitors present themselves quickly, but who is “The One?” Is he a sexy coworker, one of many bachelors at a speed-dating event, or is he the man she already set free? How do you know? Her fun-loving friends and supportive family, including meddlesome “no-filter” Aunt Helen, eagerly share their (often unsolicited) opinions, but Maggie is determined to find her own way, even if she falls on her face—repeatedly.
What do you all think of the new cover? I hope you like it as much as I do!
