I have a cover!

Woo Hoo!
Well the title says it all, really. I'm very proud to show off my very first cover. Considering that Catch Me A Catch is the story of Annie Devine, an artisan chocolatier forced into the role of temporary matchmaker, and an advertising mogul, who has just sailed in from America to her town in the west of Ireland, I think it captures the mood and main elements of the story perfectly!
