Subway Stops

This is a big one

Okay y'all. Are you ready for it? We've got to have a little cover chat.

This is something Michele and I have agonized over for months.

When we designed the Paper Planes and Other Things We Lost cover we had no plans for a series. We had the story for Brett and Ruby, and that's all we thought was going to happen. Then characters we grew to love were born (enter Cole and Amber) and their lives became ones we were invested in and thus Subway Stops and the Places We Meet and Chasing Cars and the Lessons We Learned started to weasel their way into our minds.

When we first got the cover ideas for The Paper Planes Series they made sense as a whole. We created them before we wrote the other stories. Paper Planes laid down the foundation. We LOVE that cover and always will. But as we finished Subway Stops and Chasing Cars the covers stopped lining up with the stories. Paper Planes is a solid YA cover with a solid YA story. The others, not so much.

So, now comes why we're here today.

We're changing the e-book covers

Why? Why would you do that? I know. I get it. Trust me. This is not a decision we made lightly. We love the Subway Stops and Chasing Cars covers too. I'm telling you. We AGONIZED over this, you guys. I drew them for goodness sake. They're as original as they come. So don't you worry your pretty little faces. They WILL remain in paperback! They'll go perfectly together on your shelf. You should buy them.

The thing is, we've learned over the last several months that Subway Stops and Chasing Cars don't reach readers packaged the way they are. When I told a good friend of mine (who is an avid contemporary romance reader) we were changing them, she looked at me with all the disappointment in the world and said, "But they're so cute!" So I said, "But if you didn't know who I was would you pick one of them up?" Her face immediately changed and she said, "You're right. I wouldn't give them a second thought."

These are standalone adult contemporary romances, people. With their current look, they appear to be YA or like a series you HAVE to read in order. Obviously, we would love for people to read all three stories. While it's great to get the entire story arc (and lovers of the series will tell you to start from the beginning), there's no reason you can't read Amber and Olle's story or Sam and Cole's without reading the other books first. We feel it's a disservice to Cole, Sam, Amber, and Olle if we don't do everything we can to get them into the hands of readers. We want everyone to know and love them as much as we do!

Here they are!

But, wait. I have more news! Other than the beautiful new covers? Yup. Steering away from matchy matchy covers, makes it A LOT easier for us to write more Paper Planes novels! You heard me. We have MORE planned! More standalone novels following other Flight 397 families—and maybe if you're lucky some characters you've grown to love with make a return. By branding each book differently it helps to give them their own identity. You can look for 'a paper planes novel' on the covers and know what you're getting—a Mindy Michele sweet romance sure to make you laugh, cry, and swoon!

Chasing Cars Cover Reveal

IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! Ain't it cute? We can't wait for you to read Amber and Olle's story! This cover was not an easy one to get right. Though a year ago when the Paper Planes Series idea came to fruition and we mocked up all the covers, by the time we finished Chasing Cars the cover just wasn't doing it for us anymore. So after a MILLION different mock-ups. Yup. A million. We got this baby. Apparently I can draw. Who knew? Again, a big thanks to Designs by Starla who executed our design!

On June 18, 1992, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island. 

After Amber Pratt lost her parents, her life turned into a downward spiral. So, she did what any twenty-one-year-old would do; she quit her life to backpack across Europe.

Olle Holström was supposed to be a fling in the wilds of Finland. A detour. That is all it should have been. 

It was so much more.



Olle pulls my chair out. Always a gentleman. “Thank you.”  
“Ole hyvä,” he says close to my ear, his hand brushing my bare shoulder as he takes the seat next to mine. Not across, the way he did during our meal at the fortress Monday.
Everything about this night feels different. Important. Shaking the meaning of our date away, I look at the menu the hostess left. English. Well, that’s a relief. I scoot forward in my seat and peruse the offerings. My leg bouncing on the toe of my fancy shoes with nerves.
“I imagine this might not be politically correct here, but I have to tell you I’ll be mildly irritated if you order the reindeer.”
He chuckles. “You do not eat deer in the States?”
“Deer, yes. Rudolph, no.”
His shoulders shake with suppressed laughter. “It is not much different, but for you, okei.”

Subway Stops Cover Just For YOU

When the Paper Planes series was born Chele and I instantly knew what we wanted for our covers. Chele even when so far as to mock up all three back in April 2016! The torture us authors go through to keep covers secret. I tell you, man.

Well, since Subways Stops is set in NYC in the 90's (same as Paper Planes) our original stock image of NYC didn't include two very important buildings. So, I took it upon myself to draw our own! And let me tell you, I am not an artist (I am a doodler, at best), but I wanted to at least get a better visual with the right colors. Turns out Chele loved it, so we used it!

Our designer and friend, Starla Huchton (Designed by Starla) had to take the drawing of NYC and clean up the lines (no small feat, I might add!) because my drawing wasn't the right DPI. Dang tablet program. Starla worked her magic again and helped us pull together all the different elements into one absolutely darling cover! For real though, she went through ten or so background colors for us until we (okay, so I'm very indecisive, refer to TDTSU cover reveal post) agreed on the final.

The final result:
