Cover reveal: Beautifully Awake by Riley Mackenzie

I've had the honor of designing the cover for Riley Mackenzie's debut novel, Beautifully Awake! It's been a lot of fun to work with these two authors to get the look and feel they wanted.

Diagnosis: Sleep-running 

Treatment: Truth

Prognosis: Beautifully Awake

Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small town social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced to start over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow her father’s advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a new city, taking on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing so, she gets something she never expected, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at life in the hospital.

Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more than physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three years of sleep running and leave you beautifully awake.


“Baby, I want to sleep with you.” His voice softened. “This isn’t about sex. This is about sleeping ... with you ... in our bed, just sleeping, no talking. Just silence, me listening to your soft breaths. That’s truth.” And once again this man had completely disarmed me with words alone. “See you soon, baby.”

Silence filled my ear. I turned and dropped my phone on the bed.

"You're not going to tell him, huh?" Sierra raised her eyebrows and frowned.

"I don't know, but I'm definitely not ready tonight."

"This thing with Dr. Hot-as-Balls is serious, isn't it?"

I couldn't help but nod. My gut told me she wasn't wrong.
