Welcome Nic 🙂
A huge thank you to Dani and the crew at Love Bytes for having me! And what a better way to celebrate than to do a cover reveal! I have shown this off to one or two Facebook groups, but this is the first time it’s been shown anywhere else!
Yanni’s Story is a 120K word story that took me by surprise. I always knew Yanni, from the Spencer Cohen Series, would get his own story. In case you can’t place him, in Book 2 of the Spencer Cohen Series, Yanni’s the poor guy that Spencer is hired to track down only to find out the ex-boyfriend was abusive, and poor Yanni is terrified. Spencer and Andrew take Yanni to Andrew’s parents’ house and toward the end of Book 3 of the Spencer Series, we learn that Yanni is much happier. Well, this is why it’s called Yanni’s Story – because it’s exactly what it is.
Now, about the cover… Matching covers to a completed series is never easy. Especially when the series has the MC on the cover! The Spencer Cohen Series covers are very distinct, to say the least. And adding a new cover for a character that wasn’t Spencer was never going to be easy.
I needed something that was similar, that would look part of the series, but keep Yanni’s identity. Spencer’s covers, with the leaves and the primary colours, are totally Spencer. And after searching and searching, I found the right picture for Yanni and made up a mock cover of my idea. With some help from Sara York, who takes my mock covers and makes them better, we have the perfect addition to the Spencer Cohen series.
So, without further ado, the most gorgeous addition to the Spencer Cohen Series…
When Yanni Tomaras is kicked out of his family home, his parents’ final words are religious insults and an order to never return. Homeless and desperate, he’s lured in by Lance, charming on the outside, an evil predator underneath, who abuses him until he finds the courage to leave. After years of being trapped, Yanni should feel free, but by the time Spencer Cohen finds him, he’s resigned to being handed back to Lance, and once again being caged by fear. Starting school and a part-time job, Yanni starts to reclaim his life. But a love for silent films leads him to Peter Hannikov, a man twice his age with a kind heart, and an unlikely friendship between them blooms into so much more. Neither man knows what he wants, at first. Finding out exactly what he needs is Yanni’s story.
“I’d spent years as a bird, caged with my wings clipped, tormented and beaten.
I thought I’d escaped when I’d left my tormentor, but in hindsight I could see that I was still caged, this time by fear and self-doubt.
Spencer and Andrew, and Andrew’s parents, opened the door to the cage that confined me.
But it was Peter who taught me how to fly.”
Anticipated release date: Late August 2017
