Cover Art Reveal and Giveaway!

Here it is…the cover art for Duncan and Brigid’s story!

I still can’t believe it! Stunned…excited, and very emotional. I’m delighted to take another step along this marvelous journey.

No release day yet…however, I want to throw a party to show my appreciation to all my friends and family, especially to those I have never met in person. You have walked this road with me, waiting patiently for my first book.

Your support means the world to me!

So, in honor of Dragon Knight’s Sword, I am giving away two Scottish goodie bags. As you can see, it will consist of a Scottish Teatime Recipes booklet, Scottish bagpipe magnet (plays ‘Scotland the Brave’), and Walker Shortbread.


All you have to do is leave a comment. That’s it! I will leave this post up for the weekend and announce the winners on Monday morning.

This giveaway is open to international visitors, too.

And if you have not done so yet, please sign up to be notified of upcoming news. Until I can get a system for sending out newsletters, this will be the place. 

Let the party begin!

    Oh wow Mary! This is what I woke up to! Stunning cover (and a stunning man on it as well)! I am so happy for you and so excited to read the book. 🙂 the cover is definitely one that would draw me in if I saw it in a bookstore. 😉

  2. Yolanda Ford

    This is so exciting. I am so happy for you and cannot wait to read my signed first edition 🙂 He’s very handsome (reminds me of Patrick Dempsey a little). Fabulous cover. Your name on it is the best part.

    • Oh Yolanda, thank you! I’m laughing, since that’s what my Mom said, too — Patrick Dempsey. I didn’t realize it until she mentioned it, too. I can hardly wait to put it in your hands, too. 🙂

  3. Dani

    OMG!!!!! It is magnificent, gorgeous, awesome.
    It definite makes me want to buy it (even though it was already a no brainier). Congratulations! I am over the moon excited for you.

  4. Leah Weller

    Mary, I teared up when I saw this. I am so blasted happy for you! What a gorgeous cover! I can’t stop staring at it. 🙂 Yes, the man is hott and I love, love, love the sword and castle. Beautiful colors. Wish I could give you a real (((HUG))).

    • Oh Leah, I was so hoping you would love it! The artist captured the magical element I wanted, so when you read the story, you will know what I mean. Don’t want to post any spoilers. 😉

      I can feel your hug all the way over here, my friend. (((HUGS))) back to you!

  5. Vici

    My heart couldn’t be happier for you dear sister. The only disappointment I have is that I am not there to hug you personally….I could not wish happiness to a more deserving person. I love you and know that God has many more surprises for you yet to come…Great cover art!! I Love the title and the author’s name. xoxo

  6. Vici

  10. Helen Seely

    Oh my goodness! I absolutely love it! I can’t wait to read their story. Way to go girly your dreams have become reality! Hugs.

  11. Noelle Robbins

    Mom, I don’t even have the words. I cried when I saw this. Even though I had the honor of reading your first draft awhile ago, it still really didn’t hit home until now. You should (and I know you are 😉 ) be very proud of yourself. So few of us follow our dreams in life and it is a rare and courageous journey you have taken to get here. I aspire to be like you. I love you.

    • As always…you humble me, Noelle. That first draft has come a very long way, so I will be holding my breath when I put the published book in your hands, since I treasure your input. Love you, too.

  12. Mary, there aren’t words… this cover takes my breath and I am speechless with awe. Stunning, magnificent, beautiful, all seem too paltry to praise such mastery of art. I’ve never seen a more spectacular cover. From the hero and his sword, to the cliff-top castle and the light streaming from the door arch, to the moody sky and the colors, this is sheer perfection. I am sooo happy for you!! Such a glorious cover to launch your career – a career that I know will take you to the stars. (and beyond)

    (((HUGS))) and HUGE CONGRATS!!!

    • Oh my, Sue-Ellen, I am thrilled that you like the cover. Yes, your opinion matters, truly! 🙂 As I’ve stated, the artist captured the mystical element so perfectly.

      Thank you with all my love and (((HUGS)))

  13. PS – Forgot to say (though you surely knew), please don’t enter me in your drawing. Your readers only should be in the running.

  14. Susan Fox

  23. Genevieve

    I haven’t read your books but this cover is enticing enough I will search out and find them now!

    • Oh Genevieve…thank you! But I must tell you that this is my first book. Hopefully, I will have a release date to share with everyone soon. Dragon Knight’s Sword is the first the series: Order of the Dragon Knights.

      So happy you like the cover, too! 🙂

  24. OH MY GOSH MARY!!! This is amazing! I am so excited for you! I got all goosebumpy when I scrolled down and read your name…I squealed and showed AJ. He wants to know if the dragon becomes a knight or the knight becomes a dragon? He’s excited for you too. Great cover! I’ll take a dozen!!! 🙂

    • Neither. The Dragon is a ‘She.’ Very ancient and I’ll save the rest for when you both read the book. 🙂 Think of the Dragon as one full of wisdom — old wisdom.

      (((HUGS))) my friend! And thank you!
