Seventh Tapestry Cover Reveal!

In the midst of pandemic, we can celebrate some things, yes?

Just finished The Seventh Tapestry, after a mountain of formatting and nudging into final format. And it's now live -- and wide!

This romantic suspense novel was fun to write as I followed Sandra's efforts to find a 16th Century tapestry from Edinburgh to Paris. Did she find the tapestry and a sweetheart along the way?

Didn't Angie Zambrano do a great job on the cover?

There's a bit of the story behind the cover.

Back in 2004, Allen and I spent about a month in Paris. One of our favorite places to visit was the Cluny Museum, or the National Museum of the Middle Ages, home of the very famous 'the lady and the unicorn' tapestries. I was so intrigued by the story behind these tapestries, woven sometime in the early 1500's. They were lost and not discovered until 1841. Not until two years ago, did I begin my own story of a seventh tapestry.

At first, I wanted a picture of one of those very famous tapestries on the cover of my new story, but the Museum has imposed commercial restrictions.

What did I have for my cover? A beautiful pillow we found at Stirling Castle, once the home of James V, a ruler who loved tapestries and unicorns.

Why not go and take a look on Amazon (paperback) or (ebook). And let me know what you think!

Meanwhile, the sun is shining outside, and the temperature's getting a little warmer. Maybe it's time for a walk? Stay well, keep your mask handy, and cherish each day.

    1. Thank you, Pat. I checked, and for some reason, Amazon Germany only lists the Kindle version. Let me know if that's a problem for you, and truly, thank you for your interest. Best always, Beth

    1. Actually, Liesbet, yes. This cover was rather unique because the image I wanted was copyright protected. So we used a pillow! Angie Zambrano of pro_ebookcovers on fiverr.com is my go-to cover designer, and I love her work! Check her out for your writing projects, yes?
