Yesterday, I first revealed my book cover for my debut young adult contemporary, Sleeping Around, on my YouTube channel.

If you didn’t know yet, it’s releasing on August 3, 2021♥ Check out the synopsis + preorder the ebook at the end of this post.

And tell me in the comments what you think of the book cover—which I designed myself!

Drumroll, please…

How I Designed My Book Cover

If you’re an indie author, I don’t recommend designing your own book cover unless (1) you’re a skilled digital artist and (2) you have loads and loads of free time.

I wasn’t a digital artist (when I first started working on my cover), and I didn’t have the time I thought I did to design my own cover.

However, I think it paid off—I just don’t suggest it. 

Avoid crying at 3am. Learn from my mistakes.

Book Cover Sneak Peek (and a free phone wallpaper)

Here’s not only a sneak peek at my upcoming debut ya contemporary SLEEPING AROUND, but a free phone wallpaper too! Enjoy♥


doneFoster care always promised her a bed. Now she doesn’t even have that.

Coralee (Corey) Reed can’t wait to trade her current foster house for Harmony Hall, the dorm for music majors. Corey arrives at Borns College with her pawn-shop violin and a borrowed duffle bag, ready to leave her foster care baggage behind.

But Corey’s first day on campus starts on a sour note. She runs into her archrival violinist Dylan Mason, then her name’s not on the dorm’s roster. Worst of all, Corey can’t live at Harmony Hall. Period. Because she’s not yet accepted into the music program. Instead, Reslife shoves her into a temporary triple with two unsuspecting (and beyond different) roommates.

When one of her roommates does the unforgivable, Corey starts sleeping around campus—from air mattresses to random couches—while waiting for an open room. But how can she beat Dylan for first chair if she can’t keep her eyes open? How can she pass her finals without a good night’s sleep? Will college, the place she thought would launch her dreams of becoming a professional violinist, be the place her dreams end all too soon?

Again, let me know in the comments what you think of my book cover♥
