While You're Awake by Amber Stokes: COVER REVEAL

About the Book

Sweet New Adult Contemporary Romance Novelette

There’s no rest for the fearful.

Ava always knew the bees would come. Just when she’s settled into a place of her own, freelance editing and savoring her independence, her rental house is invaded by a swarm of honey bees. And with their arrival, her lifelong fear morphs into a full-fledged panic that steals her sleep—and her peace of mind.

Keegan knows all about fear. When he meets Ava at the coffee shop where he works, he can’t help but come to her rescue. Together with his German shepherds, Sun and Moon, he sets out to break the “curse” that hovers over Tired Girl. But is it possible to conquer nightmares and live a dream while you're awake?

This sweet novelette is a contemporary re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that sheds light on the worries that bind us and the love that leads to peace.


What do you think of this cover? To me it looks like a couple sharing a secret. But maybe it is the man whispering reassuring confidence into his lady-love's ear? Or could he be whispering sweet words of love? Or maybe he is just giving her a quick kiss on the cheek? Whichever scenario, I think it is a sweet cover and I'm looking forward to reading the story inside!
