Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston, and Susan Stoker want to celebrate Jason Aaron Baca’s momentous accomplishment by breaking Fabio’s cover record! We couldn’t be prouder of him (he’s a very nice guy). We want you to know that as authors of SAVED BY A SEAL, which is Jason’s 461st cover (the book that broke Fabio’s record of 460 book covers) that you might be interested in the ‘story behind the story’ about this book.

To get the full story, go to the San Francisco Chronicle, 2.10.16 evening edition:

The three of us want to give back to our military men and women who are suffering from PTSD. We chose http://www.vetdogs.org, a 501 non-profit charity who trains service dogs for our vets who need support. ALL the money from SAVED BY A SEAL goes directly to this charity and NOT to us.

We want to thank the San Francisco Chronicle for being a part in this wonderful, heartfelt mission of ours (I’m a US Navy vet, Susan Stoker was an Army wife for over a decade and Chris Keniston is a super patriot who believes in helping our wounded vets). This was a mission of heart and supporting our brave vets. Jason’s father was a Vietnam vet, too, by the way.

So, we find this a wonderful symphony of synchronicity with an HEA–happily ever after–for our charity. For .99 cents, your subscribers can download a copy and know that the money is going to http://www.vetdog.org. I can’t think of a nicer, more wonderful celebration for everyone involved.

By purchasing the .99 cent anthology, SAVED BY A SEAL, you are helping us to get a service dog for a military vet. Be part of this circling of giving from our hearts.

NIGHT HAWK by LIndsay McKenna: The Making of a Cover!

KING OF A ROMANCE COVER: NIGHT HAWK by Lindsay McKenna, HQN, Book 10 Wyoming Series

Night Hawk cover

Harlequin was very nice in sending this to me. Readers are ALWAYS fascinated by what goes into the making of a cover.
NIGHT HAWK is set in the Jackson Hole, WY area.

What I love in this one is that the Moulton Barn, in the background, is in the valley with the Tetons in the background. Whoever made this cover in the Art Department went out of their way to get the area “right’, which is always great (but doesn’t happen often.)

Every time I go up to the Grand Tetons (20 north of Jackson Hole, WY) and Yellowstone National Park (which is 50 miles norht of JH), I always stop and take photos of Moulton Barn. And here’s one of my recent photos of it. You can see they are the same barn….where reality meets fiction!
From a photographer’s viewpoint? Moulton Barn is an ICON and a “Bucket List” place for serious amateur and professional photographers. What’s nice is that it is 1.5 days away from where Ilive. I’ll be gong up to Caspar, WY for Kallypso Masters Kallycon featuring cowboy authors in late August, 2016.

And then? Why we’ll drive from Caspar afterward over to Jackson Hole and spend seven heavenly days shooting wildlife during rutting season in the Tetons National Park, and of course. I will make my annual visit to Moulton Barn and photographic again

If you’re coming to Kalycon/Caspar (and I hope you do!) maybe some of you will join me on our photographic hunt for Moose, Grizzly, Antelope, Elk, Deer, and other fabulous wild creatures that we love to photograph so much!

It is an ICONIC place for all photographers to come and shoot it and they come from around the world!
