Hardhats and Doormats Cover Reveal!

Laura Chapman is one of the many writers I’ve met online, and she’s always been willing to promote my efforts on her blog. Well, now I have the pleasure to participate in the cover reveal for her new novel. Are you ready??


Here it is! I love this cover – it’s bright and bold, and I want to know more of what’s inside. It’s just what a book cover should be.

Hard Hats and Doormats


Lexi Burke has always been a stickler for following rules and procedures. As a human resources manager for a leading Gulf Coast chemical company, it’s her job to make sure everyone else falls in line, too.

But after losing out on a big promotion––because her boss sees her as too much of a yes-woman––Lexi adopts a new policy of following her heart instead of the fine print. And her heart knows what it wants: Jason Beaumont, a workplace crush who is off limits based on her previous protocol.

While navigating a new romance and interoffice politics, Lexi must find the confidence to stand on her own or face a lifetime of following someone else’s orders.

Who says nice girls have to finish last?

To celebrate the cover reveal for her debut novel, author Laura Chapman is sharing behind-the-scenes tidbits about the making of Hard Hats and Doormats here and on other blogs with her “Hard Hat Confessions.”

Here’s Confession #11:

So this novel was brainstormed in a car and written on an airplane. So super cool!

Best wishes with the cover reveal! I’m off to read another confession…

P.S. Hi Martha!
