MONDAY COVERS IT. Hywela Lyn's BRAND NEW cover for Dancing with Fate. Contest!!!
Happy Monday All!
This week it’s my pleasure to welcome back talented romance author and cherished friend, Hywela Lyn. As many of you know It’s all about starting your work week out right here at A Writer’s Mind with my Monday Covers It feature.
Lyn has relaunched her title, DANCING WITH FATE and I have to say… I LOVE this cover!
CONTEST ALERT! Hywela Lyn is graciously giving away an Ecopy of DANCING WITH FATE to TWO lucky commenters this week. So be sure to comment on any of Lyn’s post this week for your chance to win! Contest ends Sunday, July 24th, 12 AM EST.
Time to 'hear' from Lyn. Let's learn the scoop behind this cover’s creation…
“The cover was designed by my friend and fellow author, the talented Miss Mae. I didn’t give a lot of input in fact, I didn’t need to. She read the story and immediately picked up on the fact that my heroine, Terpsichore, loves to bathe in waterfalls. She came up with this stunning waterfall and a lovely, mysterious young woman who fits my idea of Terpsichore perfectly. The glowing bubbles add to the mythological effect.”
A little more about this story…
When Terpsichore, the Greek Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit 5th Century Wales, and help the people regain their love of dancing, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost.
But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way.
Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.
What critics are saying…
"Sweet Terpsichore may be immortal, but she has the same feelings and urges as any woman, and I wanted her to find happiness with Myrddin. With poetic prose and sizzling romance, this story is a must read for mythology and fantasy fans alike."
Romantic Science Fiction and Fantasy Get Swept Away to Other Worlds...
"Greek Mythology has rarely been so much fun to read. Hywela Lyn builds an excellent love story even with all the tongue twisting names that add even more fun to the tale."

Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
