Cover Reveal: Trouble By Any Other Name

I met Lori L. MacLaughlin through my IWSG writers group. Her blog impressed me. Her smile has this sweet tinkle that makes you smile. If you need a great pick me up, her Thursday posts are all about positive things to think about in one’s week. When I found out she’d soon be posting a brand new cover for an upcoming book, I felt like the first grader all over again in the back row waving my hand frantically and thinking, “Oh please! Call on me!”

So here she is folks. And here is her lovely new cover for Trouble By Any Other Name.

About the Book


Tara Triannon is no stranger to trouble. She’s yet to find an enemy her skill with a sword couldn’t dispatch. But how can she fight one that attacks through her dreams?

With her nightmares worsening, Tara seeks answers but finds only more questions. Then her sister, Laraina, reveals a stunning secret that forces Tara to go to the one place Tara’s sworn never to return to. Her troubles multiply when Jovan Trevillion, the secretive soldier of fortune who stole her heart, is mentally tortured by an ancient Being intent on bending him to its will. And worst of all, the Butcher — the terrifying wolf-like assassin she thought she’d killed — survived their duel and is hunting her again.

Hounded by enemies, Tara sets out on a harrowing quest to discover the true nature of who she is, to come to grips with the new volatility of her magic, and to defeat the evil locked in a centuries-old trap that will stop at nothing to control her magic and escape through her nightmares.

About the Lovely Author Lori L. MacLaughlin

Lori L. MacLaughlin traces her love of fantasy adventure to Tolkien and Terry Brooks, finding The Lord of the Rings and The Sword of Shannara particularly inspirational. She’s been writing stories in her head since she was old enough to run wild through the forests on the farm on which she grew up.

She has been many things over the years – tree climber, dairy farmer, clothing salesperson, kids’ shoe fitter, retail manager, medical transcriptionist, journalist, private pilot, traveler, wife and mother, Red Sox and New York Giants fan, muscle car enthusiast and NASCAR fan, and a lover of all things Scottish and Irish.

When she’s not writing (or working), she can be found curled up somewhere dreaming up more story ideas, taking long walks in the countryside, or spending time with her kids. She lives with her family in northern Vermont.

  1. Wow, Erika, thank you so much for your kind words and for posting my cover reveal. I truly appreciate it!

  2. Love the cover. It tells me a lot! Erika–can I ask a question about Cover Reveals. How long between the Cover Reveal and the novel publication? I have my cover done, but am waiting on a Kirkus Review which will be 7-9 weeks. It seems I should hold off on the Reveal until then. Any thoughts?

    • I think the cover reveal depends on you and/or your publisher. You want to generate suspense and excitement and create visibility for the release. I have only had one cover reveal and I think it was maybe 5 to 6 months ahead…then a snip it came a month later

    • Thank you, Jacqui! That’s interesting that you’re getting a Kirkus Review. I’ve been debating doing that, whether or not it would be worth the substantial cost.
      I just posted a cover reveal a couple of weeks ago for Kristin Smith, whose book won’t be out until November.
