Velvet Ball & The Broken Fairy have a new Book Cover

So sorry I haven't posted in a while, but that's been due to my ill health.

Today, I want to share my new book cover for Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy. 

The new cover was designed by Patti Roberts at Paradox Book Cover Designs and Formatting.
Though I liked the older cover, I always wanted a picture of Velvet and Roseberry on the front, then readers could see straight off what the story is about.

Nine-year-old Velvet has alopecia due to a long illness, and though she doesn't mind being bald, she minds getting bullied by Rodney O'Leary and his gang. When her classmates call her a pixie and steal her headband, she runs off into the forest to escape their taunts.  Enjoying the peace in the woods and picking pink wildflowers, she comes across a tiny fairy stuck in the bow of a tree. The fairy promises to grant her a wish if she saves her, but when Velvet rescues her, she finds out that the fairy can't even fly, and she has no magic powers at all.

Roseberry's not capable of granting one little wish because she didn't listen in Magic School. All she wants to do is hide away in Velvet's bedroom, dance around in Barbie clothes, and eat nice food. When the fairy becomes too rude and demanding, Velvet threatens to dump her back in the forest. But before she has a chance, Roseberry is kidnapped by Rodney O'Leary and his gang. Fearing for her tiny friend's life, Velvet knows she has to rescue her. And she'd better get there fast before the bullies kick her around like a football. After all, they think Roseberry is just a doll and they'll do anything to upset Velvet.

 The new version eBook is available on Amazon Here And on Smashwords: Here


The paperback version will be available on Amazon in a week or two, but if anyone wants to buy it now, it's available now with CreateSpace: Here
