Cover Reveal for The Back Nine: Day Three


Due to the holiday, I missed posting yesterday. However, that means today I will be posting two slivers. Let me know which one you prefer. Tomorrow, is the big cover reveal party for The Back Nine!

Stay tuned,



Cover Reveal Countdown for The Back Nine: Day Nine


The countdown has begun for the big cover reveal for The Back Nine. I thought about revealing the cover in jigsaw puzzle pieces or squares. But ultimately, I chose to go with slivers. As we inch our way closer to the entire cover reveal you will get a small taste, while still enjoying the beautiful scenery of this golf course.

Stay tuned!


Planning the Cover Reveal Party for The Back Nine

On April 7, 2015, the cover for The Back Nine will be revealed. I can’t wait to show it to everyone. It truly captures the relationship between Alec and Brooke.


For this cover reveal, I’d like to have as many participants as possible. Please contact me at giastonewriter @ if you would like to help reveal the cover for The Back Nine.

It is a black tie event, however it is one you can participate from home. Feel free to post your own pictures of what you might wear to this cover reveal soiree and if there is a certain type of hors d’oeuvres you would like to enjoy while viewing the big reveal. I’ll make sure to include them on the party page post and link back to your blog or Twitter account.

Along with the big reveal we will get to see what Brooke wears to the Cover Reveal Party. Maybe this dress?

Behind the Scenes of The Back Nine

When I began writing The Back Nine, I knew immediately how the story would begin and end. But what I had to figure out was what happened in between those two scenes. A very important question needed to be answered. What brought Brooke and Alec to the initial golf course?

Let’s start with Alec Marino.

This picture makes me want to book my ticket immediately. However, let’s return to the back story. Brooke is traveling from Texas with her boss on a business trip. We’ll talk about him later.


How do Alec and Brooke meet? What happens when these two worlds collide?



Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of The Back Nine, which is scheduled to be released on April 14, 2015.
