Cover Reveal: Gainers Grace

Check out this gorgeous new cover for the next instalment in my Changing Series!
 Gainers Grace is book two and is currently scheduled for release in March 2014.
I am in love with this cover!!



Title: Gainers Grace (Changing Series #2)
Author: Heather Gunter
Genre: New Adult
Scheduled for Release: March 2014
Cover Design:  Robin Harper of Wicked by Design
Event organized by: Into the Night Reviews


Book Summary

As a former gymnast, the concept of grace is something Mackenzie “Mac” Rivera is very familiar with. Hours upon hours of training, turning out routines that appear flawless to an outsider have allowed Mac to masterfully hide the pain and frustration of falling short of the level of perfection every gymnast strives for. It's a skill she puts to good use when she goes off to college and recreates herself. Moving on from a high school humiliation, Mac is happy with who she is and the life she has laid out before her.

Reece Shaw has it all, or so he pretends to. Too caught up in appearances and maintaining his high school status, he let the one girl that he felt something real for slip through his fingers and he's never forgiven himself for that. In a last ditch effort to put the past firmly behind him, Reece moves away from everything familiar in his life to start anew at college. Sometimes though, the past has an uncanny way of following you where you least expect it and he soon discovers its not always easy to simply start over.

Suddenly faced with a part of her past Mac would much rather forget, she is left with the all too familiar feeling of sliding backwards while trying to move forward; just like the Gainer she could never quite master on the balance beam. Mac's future depends on her leaving the past behind. The question is, can she do that gracefully and with her heart intact?

Cover Reveal: Changing Tunes



Today I am so very excited to share with you the cover of my next book -  
Changing Tunes.

I can't wait to tell you all about Ashley, you may remember her as one of "the bitches" from Love Notes and from her part in Heartstrings?  Well I decided she needed a story all of her own - and Changing Tunes is it.

Robin Harper has once again weaved her amazing magic - I just love, love, love this cover!!  


Title: Changing Tunes
Author: Heather Gunter
Genre: NA (Romance)
Scheduled for release: December 2013
Cover Design:  Robin Harper, Wicked by Design

Synopsis:

Ashley Davis is over her high school ‘bitch’ label and has decided to reinvent herself. College offers a new beginning, a chance to be different. After being assaulted, she’s realized that she needs to change and college is just the place to do it. Nobody knows her and she’d like to keep it that way.

Afraid of falling into the same patterns she decides that having no friends, no life and focusing on school is the way to go. That is, until she meets Zeke Whitman who is completely different from anyone she’s ever encountered. He’s tall, dark and completely geeky hot in his glasses. He also doesn’t seem effected by her looks and ignores her completely.

Ezekiel (Zeke) Whitman is the opposite of Ashley Davis. He’s always been driven and focused when it comes to school, but when he’s forced to partner with a tall, leggy blonde with a slight attitude, he’s thrown for a loop. Ashley confuses him, seeming academically driven in one moment, then flirting the next.

Ashley will realize that sometimes Changing Tunes isn’t as easy as it sounds. Sometimes you have to keep a little of the person that you were, in order to become the person who you want to be.


The Love Notes Series


Synopsis:
How do you cope when the people you care for hurt you the most? When the way you feel on the outside, smothers you on the inside. And when you are left to face your demons alone, will you learn that only you have the power to overcome them?

Charlie has never had it easy. Between the constant moving and the incessant fat comments and jokes from her father, her self-worth is nonexistent. Her reflection in the mirror shows her nothing but a plain Jane. Music is the only thing that keeps her sanity in check.

Charlie catches the eye of the town star quarterback, Maverick. With her curves, her brunette hair, and the voice of an angel, Maverick has never met anyone like her. Everything that is different about Charlie just makes Maverick like her more. Unfortunately, Charlie doesn’t see it herself.

Proving it to her may deem harder than he thinks, especially when tragedy strikes and tears them apart.

Now standing on her own two feet she may finally learn exactly who she is, what’s she’s capable of and how very un plain Jane she really is.

Everyone thinks of me as this happy and upbeat person. What they don't know is that I carry a deep, dark secret. Something horrible happened to me a year ago, and I have kept it quiet all this time. I was fine for a while, but somehow it’s chosen this time to come back, and it's eating at me--like a cancer.

I need to tell someone about it, I just don't know how. I'm pushing everyone I love away, including my mom and my best friend Charlie.

Then there is Will. Handsome, sweet Will. We went out on a date a while back, but then the incident happened leaving me crushed and him confused.

How do you tell someone you care about all of your secrets, and will they still want you when the truth comes out?

To finish off, there are seven more blogs sharing Heartstrings.

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful blogs that have supported this tour.  
An extra special shout out to Tami (my amazing blog partner!) from Into the Night Reviews and Kristy from Book Addict Mumma for all their hard work in organising this tour.  
From my perspective it was absolutely seamless and I'm pretty sure all of the participating blogs would say the same thing.  

Thank you ladies - you rock!!

An of course I can't forget the most important people of all - you the readers, the ones who read my books and tell others about them.  Without you none of this would be possible - so thank you, thank you, thank you - from the very bottom of my heart.

Here's one last teaser for you - enjoy!  Oh and don't forget to pop back a little later when I share my surprise with you ;)

Day Seven of the tour is the biggest day so far in terms of number of stops.  There is ten stops, count them ... ten!!  Links to their sites are below so please make sure you go and see what they've got to say about Heartstrings.

Hopefully you've been enticed to pick up a copy of Heartstrings as you followed the tour, but just in case you need a bit more encouragement - here are a couple more teasers that were shared prior to the release of Heartstrings.

Heartstrings Blog Tour - 30 August


Day Six of the blog tour with another seven stops.  The support for this tour has been overwhelming and some of the wonderful reviews have brought me to tears.  The blogging community is truly a wonderful thing and I'm proud to be part of it.

No book would be complete with the contribution of an editor.  They add a certain polish to the story and ensure that spelling, grammar and all the really important stuff is just right.  I'd love to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Raelene Green for picking this up quite late in the process and weaving her editing magic.

The other people that make all the difference in the writing process are the beta readers and I had an awesome group of girls giving me feedback along the way, supporting me and encouraging me and helping me make Heartstrings what it is today.  

So a big shout out goes to Debi Barnes, Julie Deaton, Lara Felstein, Kristy Garbutt, Stephanie Harper Mulford, Danielle Hoover, Emily Sarah Lamphear-Mitchell, Katie Mac, Lea Marika, Tami Norman and Elle Wilson.

Day four and there is again an amazing line up of blogs - links to their sites are below.  
I am so thankful for all the support being given to Heartstrings.

Make sure to come back on 1 September as I have a surprise to share!

Creating characters is part of the writing process that I really love.  Tori and Will first appeared in Love Notes with Charlie and Maverick, so I had a bit of time to think about them and develop them.  Everyone pictures their characters differently, but for me, the following pictures are my perfect Heartstrings cast.

Day Two of the tour sees an even bigger line up of blogs with eight stops today.  Blog links to each of the blogs are provided below so you can go and see what they've got to say about Heartstrings.


I am a huge music lover and music plays a large part in my writing process.  As I wrote Heartstrings I listened to songs and found many that related to elements of the story.  I thought you might like to see the songs that to me, are as much a part of Heartstrings as the characters are.
