Red Dirt Heart Imago… Say What????

Yes, you read that correctly.  A SURPRISE RELEASE!!!

Red Dirt Heart Imago is a thing! It’s an 18K word short story of when red dirt hearts and butterflies collide ❤

And look at this gorgeous cover!!!

BLURB:

When Charlie Sutton’s neighbour Greg is notified by the Queensland government that they intend to run a pipeline through his property, Charlie vows to help him fight it. Then Travis remembers seeing butterflies at the creek near their joining fence line – the same butterflies they couldn’t find in any Australian butterfly book. Hopeful this might be their only chance to stop the development, they seek the help of a specialist.

Lawson Brighton-Gale receives an email request to identify a butterfly in the Outback, only to discover it’s not an Australian butterfly at all. But that’s not all he discovers. The name on the request is familiar to Jack. An old friend from his university days, who also happened to be his old friend with benefits, Charlie Sutton.

Years ago, two out-of-towners met at the University of Sydney. Both studying environmental sciences, both hundreds of miles from home, and both finding their worlds open to new experiences, they fell into bed together. Meeting again after all this time, in front of Lawson and Travis, won’t be awkward at all, right?

Lawson and Jack’s trip to Sutton Station certainly doesn’t go to plan, and what they take back to Tasmania isn’t just butterflies, but a cocoon of possibilities.

A Red Dirt Heart and Imago crossover ~ The story of when red dirt and butterflies collide.

BLURB:

Moving from a Texas ranch to an Australian Outback station was a life changing decision for Travis Craig. Though it wasn’t really a decision at all. Something in his bones told him to go, though he had no clue as to why.

Until he met Sutton Station’s owner, Charlie.

Loving Charlie shouldn’t have been easy. The man was stubborn, and riddled with crippling self-doubt. No, it shouldn’t have been easy at all. Yet somehow, falling in love with Charlie was the easiest thing in the world.

Loving him was easy. Living with him, teaching him how to love in return and, more importantly, how to love himself, was not.

But Travis knew all along it’d be worth it. He knew the man with the red dirt heart was destined to be his. Just like he knew the red dirt that surrounded him was where he was supposed to be.
In the final instalment of the Red Dirt Series, we see Charlie through Travis’ eyes. We see how much he’s grown and how much he loves. We go back to Texas with them, and we see Charlie get everything he truly thought he never deserved.

Red Dirt Heart 4 is Travis’ story.

And this is the story of not just one red dirt heart, but two.

Red Dirt Heart 4 Cover Reveal and Blurb

What could possibly be my favourite cover EVER, I present to you the very beautiful cover for Red Dirt Heart 4.

 

Reddirtheart4300

 

The very talented Sara York has outdone herself with this one. ❤ I just love it. It’s perfect for this story.  It shows two pairs of boots, and of course, the lagoon where the boys swim. I love the blue tones to this cover (Travis is the colour blue to me, whereas Charlie is more browns and reds).

And all I’m saying at this point, is there’s a special second cover that goes with this book. It’s a cover for the epilogue, which is a part of RDH4 not a standalone, but I want it to be a surprise when you get to the end of the book. Just so you know, I cried when I saw it. Literal tears.

Expected release date is January 9th 2015 (all things going well) and I can NOT wait for you guys to read this book.

Cover Reveal ~ Red Dirt Heart 3

Once again, Sara York has created the most fabulous cover for me!  

And it is perfect.

The story of Charlie and Travis continues, and now it’s springtime in the desert.  Life is in full bloom and as in all three Red Dirt Heart books, the desert is a reflection of the man that lives and breathes it.  For Charlie, the days are warm, the nights are good for snuggling in bed, and he’s finally certain Travis is here to stay.

But just like the desert in spring, life is busy. Probably too busy. And with everything that’s going on around him, Charlie is also certain he couldn’t do any of it without Travis.  But what happens when he has to?

Red Dirt Heart 3 is about the growth of Charlie Sutton coming full circle. In order to be the man he truly believes Travis deserves – a man who can stand on his own two feet and win his own battles –  he just might have to do exactly that.

BLURB:

Life for Charlie Sutton has never been better, or busier.  With Travis now a permanent fixture of Sutton Station, a permanent fixture at Charlie’s side, Charlie’s convinced he couldn’t do anything on his ever-growing to-do list without him.

He can run a multimillion dollar cattle business, finish his degree, try and further the local beef industry, deal with staff issues, Ma’s failing health, and an attention-demanding wombat. He can even deal with an unexpected visitor and some shattering news. 

He can deal with it all, as long as he has Travis.

But what happens when he doesn’t?

Red Dirt Heart 3 is the story of Charlie Sutton finally realising he can be the man Travis Craig deserves, even if he doesn’t have Travis. It’s a story of love, family, holding on, letting go and coming home.

 

ABOUT THESE COVERS

PicMonkey Collage

It wasn’t intentional, and it really wasn’t until I was asked in an interview about these covers, that I made the connection. But each cover is significant in how it relates to the desert, the seasons and of course, how it relates to Charlie Sutton. Throughout these books, we know the desert runs though Charlie’s veins. We know the desert is like a secondary character, and how Charlie lives and grows with each season.

Red Dirt Heart 1’s cover is very solitary, just like  Charlie. A tree without growth, a single hat. Charlie was surviving in the desert, but wouldn’t call it ‘living’.  It’s summer, scorching hot, barren and unforgiving. Just like Charlie. 

Red Dirt Heart 2’s cover is all about Charlie. The colours are  Outback red and shows the inclusion of Travis with the second hat. From Autumn to winter, things have cooled on Sutton Station in more ways than one. But as Charlie knows too well, these seasons are where the earth takes a moment to regroup before the promise of new life.

Red Dirt Heart 3’s cover is about growth and standing on your own two feet. Spring is where life flourishes, changes and grows. There is a distinct circle of life in RDH3 and how Charlie, like the desert, grows.
