cover reveal & giveaway for 'the marrying type'

The wait is finally over! I am pleased to announce that my second novel, The Marrying Type, will be published on February 24, with Marching Ink. Big thanks and props go to Ashley Byland of Redbird Designs for creating this fabulous cover.

And now for a closer look...

Here's the blurb for The Marrying Type:
Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father’s sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on “The Marrying Type,” a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy (and the hefty paycheck that comes with it).
With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot’s wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress. 
Forced to confront her past, Elliot must live out her troubled present on national TV if she has any hope of saving her future.

And the official book trailer:

To celebrate the upcoming publication, we are giving away three digital ARCs of The Marrying Type. (Note, these are ARCs that have not gone through a final round of edits so there may be a few typos and changes that come ahead.)

You can also now add the book to your to-read list on Goodreads and join the virtual launch party on Facebook.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped make this upcoming release possible. It really does take a lot of people behind the scenes to bring a book to life, and I couldn't have done it without you. There was a lot of love and fun (and of course some moments of hair pulling) that went into making this book, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. (And I hope it doesn't leave you pulling out your hair. I hope I did enough of that during my revision process so you won't have to do any on your end!)
