New Blog Design + My Cover Reveal!

Hey, guys! It's been a while. How were your holidays? Are you back into the swing of things yet? ;) Two things on the agenda today: 

 

1. I took ten hours over break to revamp my blog design. Do you like it?
2. I'm revealing the cover of HONESTY (Mark of Nexus #2.5)

↓  ↓  ↓

 


Honesty (Mark of Nexus #2.5)


 
Category: New Adult 
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Book Description:

Note: This title is best enjoyed after Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) and Courage (Mark of Nexus #2).

Cole Blake is more than just a roguish ladies’ man. He’s also a dedicated worker—so dedicated, in fact, that he’s willing to blackmail his boss with a falsified sex tape in order to keep his job. And his proactive efforts don’t end there. After hours, he uses his Dynari abilities to moonlight as a vigilante, keeping his neighborhood safe from drunks, dealers, and would-be thieves.

Until a mistake stops him dead in his super-accelerated tracks.

Now burdened with the closest thing he’s ever had to a conscience, Cole struggles to justify his once-reckless actions. It’d be all too easy to give in to his darker impulses, especially with ERA making dangerous advances toward their goal of revolution, but embracing that hatred could jeopardize the few relationships he actually cares about—including his pursuit of the saintly Rachel Ranford. No, in order to keep everyone safe, he’ll have to come clean about his warring compulsions and ask for help... before his dark side consumes him.

P.S. I've been having some health issues, so I'm not on top of my game, but I'll try to return comments throughout the week. :)

Oooh. More about Cole. I can't wait! And love the cover. *swoon*

Kyra Lennon said...

Oh my God, that cover is gorgeous!

Tammy Theriault said...

Loved it! Remember best line ever? "Oh, we'll beep all right." But I still like my version of ending it with "night". :D I guess I'll use that during our next rendezvous with Chibs and Jax. And thank you Cole for reminding me that yoga is HOT! Now imagine the nude yoga...WITH the top hot. Eh? Eh?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey, that's cool - your sidebar moves.
Third cover looks awesome, Carrie.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Congrats, Carrie! I love the cover. I'll announce it in follower news next Monday. And I love your blog design, especially how your picture and contact info moves as we move down on the blog post.

Brinda said...

Congrats, Carrie. I think you have a winner with the cover, hero and storyline.

I really love that cover. Can't wait to read about Cole!
Miss the typewriter, but love the scrolly thingy. :)

E.J. Wesley said...

I'm calling this one: The Smolder. :D

Dig the blog design, too! I want to touch the screen in a completely appropriate and non-weird way. (Looks like it's got texture, which is cool!)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Tia! :D

Loni Townsend said...

Loni Townsend said...

Top hats make EVERYTHING better! Actually, so does SOA. Best rendezvous ever! :D

David P. King said...

Like the new place! And you've got great taste in covers! :)

jamieayres.com said...

New cover great! I do like the new look (though I LOVED your old one too), but to be honest, the bouncy thing going on to the left is very distracting to me . . . but I have the attention span of a brain damaged goat, so don't take my word on it. Anyway . . . what's going on with me? Just working like a dog to prepare for the release of 18 Truths!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I love the set up, honestly I miss the old colour but this looks good too. Congrats on a lovely cover. The man is handsome.

Carrie Butler said...

It's a stalker! ;)

Thank you, Alex!

Mark Koopmans said...

Aloha!

Dude-ette... you be *rocking* with the new blog look... (swear this is true>>>) I clicked on your comment on Morg's site (I'm below you :) and first thing I thought was "NICE!" followed by "how does she do this??" and then I read the first line of the post :)

Well done :) and also honest (me so funny) congrats about the cover reveal.

If you need help promoting the release, just let me know :)

Cheers!

spajonas said...

Love the cover! As you know :) The blog design looks great too. Just want to point out that there's some text right under this blog comment field that's black on the black background and you can't see. Otherwise, perfect!

Morgan said...

Carrie, I'm soooooo stinkin proud of you and everything you're doing! Love the design and I'm freaking with the cover. All of your book covers ROCK. You are taking this world by storm. <3

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Looks great! You're so talented!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Jeff! :D

Michael Di Gesu said...

HI, Carrie,

WELCOM BACK! WONDERFUL new cover! ALL THE BEST!

Hope all is well.... It's been ages. I'm having a COFFE HOP today if you need steaming cup to get through your day. With our lovely mid west weather this past few months .... WE ALL NEED a cup to keep warm!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Donna! And congrats to you, too. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you very much, Stephen! I hope 2014 is good to you, too. :)

Carrie Butler said...

I love his stare! :) Thanks, V!

Mark Murata said...

I don't know why people move on from blogger to some boring websites. You've shown what versatile things can be done on your blogspot.

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Elizabeth! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Juliana! :D

David List said...

Upgrades!!
I dig it. Any effort spent re-inventing is never wasted as far as I'm concerned. I'm currently doing my share of inventing for 2 WIP websites... To be announced.
My wife up and decided to read my book. Therefore I had to stall buying her yours. I had a feeling that yours would be way more up her alley than mine and didn't want to risk derailing her interest in my story :) You understand. She's on book one (Strength) now and enjoying it thoroughly.

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Joy! You too. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Goddess of Grammar! I'm sure I'll recycle the typewriter again someday. I saved it. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! That's a perfect label for it.

Thank you, my friend! I made the background texture online. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Loni! I do, too. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Michelle! :D

Rachel Morgan said...

Congrats on your new cover!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, DPK! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Fight the ADD, Jamie. Fight it! LOL

No, I know what you mean. These posts were just getting so long that it really helped me to have the navigation follow. We'll see how long I stick with it. ;)

Woohoo for 18 TRUTHS!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Sheena-kay! I may mix it up and find a way to combine both designs in a few months. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Mark! I appreciate it. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you! I'll screw around in the HTML later to find that trouble spot on the footer. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Morgan! *hug*

Carrie Butler said...

Aww, thank you, Elizabeth! <3

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Natasha! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you very much, Liz! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Kanettra! I appreciate it. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, my friend! :)

Don't tell anyone, but I only drink coffee like once a week. *whispers* And when I do, it's decaf...

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Mark! That's very kind to you. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Why, thank you, Mr. List!

Hey, I can't blame you there. It's great that she read your book. Although, I hate to hate to follow that act! I'm glad she's enjoying Strength. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Rachel! :)
