Hello! I’m Roseanna M. White, author of several dozen historical romances (most of which are set in Edwardian England), a few biblical fiction love stories, and in my (ha!) spare time, a cover designer. I also run (along with my amazing husband) the WhiteFire Publishing Group. And my most recent venture is the Bookish Things Shop, right here on my website! (Where I have not only stuff relating to my books, but also things for EVERY book lover!) So…you know, pretty busy around here! You can find me everywhere @RoseannaMWhite (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest).
My most recent release is a historical romance set in 1906 on the gorgeous Isles of Scilly off the coast of Cornwall…full of the search for pirate treasure, mistaken identities, and lots of adventure to go along with the romance.
Lady Elizabeth “Libby” Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn’t favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage’s former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished.
Oliver Tremayne–gentleman and clergyman–is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he’s happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth’s summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it’s the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can’t quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.
As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.
Isn’t that book cover (just below here) just GORGEOUS?! I was so excited when I saw it—my one request had been that my heroine, Libby, be in a purple dress (key to the story), and I was so excited when I saw it! Then my excitement grew even more on release day, when I received the most unexpected of comments on my social media posts about the book…
MEETING THE FAMILY OF
AND MODEL FOR A BOOK COVER!
Release week is always fun and exciting, but I was so surprised when I saw a couple comments from the grandmothers of the cover model on The Nature of a Lady! They were tagging each other, full of glee at seeing their sweet granddaughter on the cover. I reached out to one of them to say what a wonderful job she’d done at capturing Libby’s sweet spirit, and she was quick to tell me how sweet the model, Ashton, is in real life too.
Over the course of the day, I learned that Ashton, a professional model, and her husband live in the same city as my publisher, and how they are the hands and feet of Jesus in their neighborhood, which was in the heart of the riots last year. I learned how they seek God first and foremost. And I learned that this proud grandmother had been a reader of my books already, so to have her granddaughter on the cover of one was a treat for them as well. I was so excited that we were soon conspiring together to send her granddaughter a special surprise package to thank her for doing such an amazing job being Libby.
I’ve had many covers before, and a few times I even learned who the models were…but this unexpected connection was the sweetest release day surprise!
