I am so excited to share the cover for my brand new book. This is my fourth novel, and third release through Soul Mate Publishing. Coming this November, ‘Chasing the Painted Skies’ is an alternative paranormal.
Part mystery, part treasure hunt, part ghost story and all romance…
Don’t you just love that cover? In honor of this book, I am holding a Rafflecoptor giveaway of this special bracelet:
This is a hand painted wooden bracelet from GreaterGood.org. Adorned in brilliant colors, this bracelet is a hand-painted festival of Indian life and craftsmanship. Made by the skilled artisans of Community Friendly Movement, a fair trade group that creates job opportunities for marginalized women, empowering them with fair wages while utilizing their traditional skills.
- 2.75″ across (7 cm)
- Handmade in and fairly traded from India
Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time.
The connection to the story is simple. There is a bracelet one of the characters wears that was given to them as a gift and allows them special powers. And the bracelet being given away is called ‘Adorned Treasure’. There is also a hunt for missing treasure in the story as well. Clever, huh?

So are you wondering what the book is really about? Here is a short blurb:
Raven Koynes is a woman in hiding. Years ago she escaped to remote Gull Island Light Station, nestled far away in Lake Superior. She has carved out a life of peace and safety for herself. Until famed nature photographer, Sebastian Knight arrives–at the height of a nor’easter storm–to document the beauty of Gull Island. Unsavory treasure hunters also blow in with the storm, determined to find missing cargo from a sunken ship. And they are convinced Raven knows where its stashed. A power outage from the storm is the final threat.
Help arrives in the form of a stray German Shepherd Dog, who takes an immediate protective interest in Raven. He becomes her constant shadow and listening ear as she sorts out her growing–and conflicting–feelings for Sebastian and concern of the treasure hunter’s mounting impatience.
Meanwhile, Sebastian came to the island looking for treasure as well, in the form of photographs. While he isn’t so sure about a sunken boat and missing cargo, he only needs one look at Raven Koynes to know he’s found his own valuable treasure. One he hopes he can hang on to once she learns about his mysterious secret.
Now that Madeline, the resident ghost has found it out, it’s just a matter of time until Raven does too. And with the storm and power outage, no one is going anywhere any time soon.
