2009 Ultimate Clash of the Covers

I’m pleased to announce that our first annual Ultimate Clash of the Covers winner is: Somewhere My Love by Beth Trissel.The author and the artist have each won a lovely sterling silver heart & rose charm.
Big congratulations from all of us at Embrace the Shadows!

A big thank you from me to cover artist Tamra Westberry!
My first release, Somewhere My Love, a murder mystery/ghost story romance with flashbacks to early nineteenth century Virginia and Hamlet parallels, won the 2008 Preditors &Editors Award Readers Poll for Best Romance Novel.

Star-crossed lovers, flashbacks to early 18th century Virginia, ghostly, murder mystery, light paranormal romance, Gothic flavors…SOMEWHERE MY LOVE

“As I read Somewhere My Love, I recalled the feelings I experienced the first time I read Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca long ago. Using deliciously eerie elements similar to that gothic romance, Beth Trissel has captured the haunting dangers, thrilling suspense and innocent passions that evoke the same tingly anticipation and heartfelt romance I so enjoyed then, and still do now.” ~ Joysann, Publishers Weekly
