I'm very excited to reveal the cover for Richard Pearson's THE ROLE. I'm dying to read THIS!
I love the vibe this cover projects from what looks like velvet curtains to the actors' bare feet. Plus, there is the skulking guy hiding off to the side. Makes me curious about what's going on in this scene.
Luckily, I won't have to wait too long. Spring 2016 is right around the corner.

Mason Burroughs is an actor on the verge of giving up after being turned away at audition after audition. But his life changes when he bumps into Kevin Caldwell, an old crush from acting school. Kevin helps Mason land a role that could make him the next Broadway star. However, as rehearsals begin, Mason learns that there’s a lot more drama than just what’s on stage. With a personal trainer claiming he can mold his body to resemble a Greek statue, an underhanded understudy waiting in the wings to replace him, a megalomaniacal director, and Kevin hellbent on breaking up Mason and his boyfriend, Mason must choose how much he is willing to sacrifice to make his Broadway dream a reality.
