Cover Reveal: THE WRITE MAN

Posted on Dec 1, 2017 by Lisa Ricard Claro   6 Comments | Posted in The Naked Truth

Hello, gang! I’m excited to share the cover of my novella, THE WRITE MAN, releasing December 8th in Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay Kindle World. 


Roxanne revealed all of the covers on Facebook today at the Barefoot Bay Kindle World Fan Club, and they look great. I hope you’ll visit the fan club and join up so you can participate in the launch party on December 8th. There will be prizes and giveaways all day, including a $55 Amazon gift card! I’ll be taking over from eleven to twelve. Hope to see you there. 🙂

Here’s the blurb for THE WRITE MAN:

She’s afraid to trust . . .

Trust comes hard for kid-lit author Merry Sunjoy, who survived a rough childhood and rocky marriage to a pathological liar. But Merry ignores her painful past and seeks silver linings everywhere, though she’s tested by Scurvy Rickets, a writer of raucous pirate stories for kids, who has engaged Merry in a humiliating social media battle. Adding to her anguish is her sister’s miscarriage and the upcoming anniversary of their mother’s death. Merry escapes to the golden beaches of Mimosa Key to hide from the world and write her next book.

He can’t tell her the truth . . .

Syndicated sports columnist Nick Brubaker isn’t looking for love when he meets Merry Sunjoy on the beach, but her sunny, impetuous ways heat him up fast, and she soon owns his heart. They take moonlit walks and share deep confidences, but Nick withholds his most important secret: He is Merry’s detested online nemesis, Scurvy Rickets. A legal contract enforces Nick’s silence, and he can’t divulge his nom de plume or his misbelief that Merry knew the online ribbing was arranged by others for promotional purposes.

Hidden words, hidden meanings . . .

When Merry accidentally discovers Nick’s secret, the betrayal cuts deep, and Merry uses Nick’s contract of silence against him. It will take deft writing on Nick’s part to convince Merry that he’s worthy of her love and trust, and that while he may be The Write Man, he is also, and will always be, the right man for her.


This story is pure romance, so if you love happy-ever-afters, I hope you’ll check it out.  🙂

See you again on Wednesday!

    Lisa–Congratulations on yet another book. I guess your move to Florida agrees with you since you’ve added a new notch on your publishing belt. (You insisted on approving the hunk who’s on the cover, didn’t you? 😉

      Oh, Sioux, you’re such a dreamer (regarding the hunk on the cover). Just one of the many reasons I love you. 🙂 But yes, Florida agrees with me. It’s tough to be unhappy ten minutes from the beach and surrounded by palm trees!
