Anyone want to see my new book cover?



Blurb:

An act of violence destroys his family and ends the life he knows. To escape his haunted past, he joins the military, where, as a sniper, he is trained to kill with precision and detachment. When a covert organization offers him a new purpose, he becomes Haven, an operative devoted to protecting the innocent when he can and avenging them when he cannot.

After ten years of battling the evil in the world, the life no longer holds the attraction or meaning it once had, and he’s ready to walk away. Then he meets Samuel, a young man forced from the age of twelve to work as a sex slave. If ever a man had a need for Haven, it is this one.

Yet nothing about this growing relationship is one-sided. Sammy gives Haven a stability he’s never known, and Haven becomes the rock upon which Sammy knows he can depend.

When Sammy reveals something about the enemy Haven has been hunting for months, Sammy fears it will destroy what they’ve built and he’ll lose his home in Haven’s heart.

---
The book is fairly dark and has some parts that definitely aren't for the squeamish. Much of this was part of the 'therapy' I did while working at the hotel with this evil woman (she made threats against employees and managers, but always got away with it.)

18. Intense read...

There are some parts definitely not for anyone who is squeamish. Haven's a very bad good guy. He's a firm believer in an eye for an eye. In one case, quite literally.

16. It depends on if the book sells...

I might look into it. I'd love to have an audiobook with my name on it. (Well, I have some, but they're with my cowriter.)

12. When it's done...

It's going to be on Amazon, AllRomance, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and a few other places.

And I hope it's a good read. Definitely not my usual stuff.

22. Coming out December 14th

Amazon eBook: http://www.amazon.com/Havens-Creed-Parker-Williams-ebook/dp/B0190XCAX2/ref=sr_1_1

AllRomance eBook: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-haven039screed-1940506-153.html

I've got the paperback in the works, but since this is the first time I've done one, no clue how it works.

21. Congratulations, and the best of luck with it and any other writing!

Is this book envisioned as a genesis story for a series about the protagonist?
