There be covers here!

I'm so pleased to share the covers for my first two books that will be released together in May 2008! I'll be writing under the pen name Kate Harmon...isn't it cute, young and hip?

Without any further ado...here they are...





I just love them! Hope you love them, too...and will pick them up!

Hugs,
Marley = )

Great covers. Also, I feel like know you from the time I spent your photo in Dallas!

LOL, Janie. It DID seem like Marley's picture factored into most every event we attended, huh? So much fun...

How cool are they, Marley? They should do really well. Isn't it a hoot to see your own book jackets? Been a while since I had that fun, but I recall it well. Come visit my webcomic and stuff, MG!

These are adorable! Sure to catch anyone's eye--and cute enough to make B&N turn them face out on the shelf, I bet!

Diane said...

Hey Marley,

How absolutely thrilling for you. Bet you can't wait to see the real thing!

Celise said...

very cool covers. I'm guessing the books are about sororities, but can you give us a blurb summary for both?

Jana J. Hanson said...

Very cute covers, Marley!! Congrats to you!!! I cannot wait to read these!

And does Kate Harmon have a website?

Mel Francis said...

late to the partay as usual...

Ditto everyone else. Great covers! Congrats!

Marley Gibson said...

Thanks for all the amazing comments everyone! Much appreciated! "Kate" will indeed have a website...rather, a URL that will direct you to my website where I'll have a "writing as" page.

As for what the books are about...ZETA OR OMEGA is about sorority rush at a southern university. Three heroines, all from different backgrounds, meet in rush and have to make the biggest decision (so far) of their college career -- which house to pledge and why. THE NEW SISTERS is about the pledge or new member period where the girls experience swaps, fraternity parties, football games, trying to balance school and a social life and culminating with their initiations into their sorority of choice.

Thanks again everyone! You've made my week!!

Hugs,
Marley = )
