Cover Reveal for BREATHLESS by Krista McLaughlin

I'm very excited today to help Krista McLaughlin reveal the cover for her debut novella, BREATHLESS! Krista has been a blogging buddy of mine for a while now, so it's really cool to witness her first steps into the publication world :-) (And the other reason this is a super exciting cover reveal is because I designed the cover!)

Author: Krista McLaughlin
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Cover Designer: Morgan Media

Eighteen-year-old Lainey is the only witness to her best friend losing her life to the depths of the ocean. She stays close to the water, a small part of her hoping to surrender to the same fate. On her birthday the waters almost overtake her, but a mysterious young man rescues her and disappears.

Lainey can't stop thinking about the stranger from the beach, and one night she finds her rescuer naked and bleeding on the shore. Jon doesn’t know what pancakes taste like, how microwave popcorn cooks, or own shoes, but he seems to be just what Lainey needs. As the anniversary of her friend’s death looms, Lainey opens herself in ways she never thought possible. But when Jon’s identity comes to light, Lainey has to save him before she loses another love to the sea.

A little bit about Krista ...

Krista McLaughlin graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Child, Adult, and Family Services, and a minor in English. She was born and raised in the Midwest with her nose stuck in a book and her hand smeared in pencil lead. When she is not cuddling with little ones she nannies, she is reading or cross-stitching. She loves J.R.R. Tolkien and all things Star Trek.

Visit Krista at one of her online hangouts and let her know what you think of her cover :-)
