NEW COVER!

Here's the cover of my new book: Coming September 2009!



(Cover art: The Waters of Mormon by Linda Curley Christensen)

Endorsements for the book include:

“Alma has it all: vibrant characters, danger, spiritual challenges, and bittersweet joy. Moore has created an epic tale that’s simply impossible to put down.”
—Jason F. Wright, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Wednesday Letters and Christmas Jars


“. . . an exciting and faith-promoting tale—the Book of Mormon in 3-D and Technicolor.” –Richard Cracroft, BYU Magazine


“H.B. Moore brings the remarkable characters to life through well-researched detail, a hard-to-put-down storyline, and scripturally accurate counsel that reflects the author's own deep understanding of the scriptures. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and the way in which the books cause you to ponder the scriptural accounts.” –Al Rounds, Artist


“In a pattern that has become warmly familiar, H. B. Moore crafts a page-turning yet well-researched story of the challenges that a Book of Mormon personality faces when trying to lead a colony of believers to safety, not once but twice. Alma the Elder, who begins his life in debauchery, becomes the respected adviser to a king and the leader of his church, and more. On a personal level, this man becomes the model for all of us who seek to arrest a wasted life and turn it into something grand and meaningful.” –S. Kent Brown, emeritus professor of ancient scripture, BYU

Terresa said...

Gorgeous cover, takes my breath away. And the praise is amazing...you are, too!! I'd be on cloud nine, and where do you go from there?!

Congrats!

Sheila said...

I love the cover and it is simply amazing! I can't wait to read your next Whitney Award winning book.

Heather B. Moore said...

Thanks, everyone.

Terresa--yes, I think cloud nine is good. But we writers know that there is always more angst out there like "will the reviews be good?" and if so, "can I write a good enough book next time?" In fact, I need to start working on Alma the Younger pretty soon.

Thanks, Sheila. I don't know about a Whitney for this one. I've been reading several of the historicals that are already out and there are some fantastic ones.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
No offense, but you seem to come up trumps with your covers unlike so many other Cov. authors.

I know I said it on FaceBook but I love this cover. I added the book to my Goodreads list so I won't forget to pick up a copy. I love how much I've learned about all the great authors who have been right under my nose here in Utah!

Heather B. Moore said...

The artist is Linda Curley Christensen. I just "chatted" with her and I'm buying a print of the painting. I added it to this blog under the cover jpeg so you can check out her website.

Janette Rallison said...

It's always so fun to see the cover. For me it's when the manuscript starts to feel like a real book and not just a file on my computer. Congrats!

Michele Holmes said...

They'll LOVE the book Heather. And the cover is beautiful. Congratulations.
