Hello everyone! As part of the Chrysalis Cover Reveal event I wanted to throw a spotlight on the wonderful woman who created my fabulous new Chrysalis cover! The Chrysalis cover was custom made, the two models are the fantabulous Jessica Becerra and Javier Gonzalez. (Check out some of the Behind The Scene Photos of Chrysalis Photo Shoot!)

First…(A Little about Courtney Vail)

Courtney is an author but she is also a.k.a. Amy Rooney the name which she conducts business for CVWriters Designs!

So lets check the details on this great Author and some of her creations:O


courtney vail


Courtney writes totally twisted YA and adult suspense. She enjoys braiding mystery, suspense & romance with some kind of weirdness. Her addictions to crazy coffee concoctions, Funny Bones, Ben & Jerry’s, and bacon keep her running and writing. She currently lives in New England with a comedian stud and a wild gang of kidlets.


Her mystery suspense novel, Kings & Queens, is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords.

K&Q cover

When a 17-year-old tomboy can’t budge police after overhearing two fellow students planning a church shooting, she aims to ID the nutjobs herself before they act. But when their agenda turns out to be far bigger than she ever assumed, she becomes the centerpiece in a ruthless game that casts even her closest friends under suspicion.

Sold on Amazon Smashwords

The sequel, Sapphire Reign, which opens ten years later, is currently in editing and will be released this summer.

SR trial cover

Still reeling from the repercussions of the church shooting plot she got jerked into ten years ago in high school, Majesty is shattered, having also lost her daughter, Mikayla, in a preschool gas explosion and, oh yeah, her marriage to a slut. So, when she receives a bizarre glimmer of hope that her little girl might actually be alive, she fights heaven and hell to reclaim the happiness that’s been stripped from her. But her hunt sets her fifteen-year-old sister–Skye, a young girl and two other adults on collision course for disaster. In their dark world, nothing is what it seems and these seekers of truth may not like the answers they find. And little Mikayla could very well be trapped in this web of deception … or truly gone forever.

She is also working on two urban fantasy novels.


In addition to writing, Courtney, AKA, Amy Rooney, also owns CVWriter Designs. She holds a B.S. in Journalism Advertising from Liberty University and has worked in advertising and as a graphic designer since 1996.  Although she can be commissioned for any print design work, her primary focus within the past 2 years has been to help publishers and authors put out esthetically pleasing covers, eBooks, interiors and marketing materials.

She creates pre-made book covers, so if you’re looking for an inexpensive book cover option, check out the pre-made book cover gallery. All pre-made covers are only sold once and feature title manipulation free of charge.

Pre-made covers start at $40. The listed price includes a full paperback cover, an eBook cover, a facebook cover, a blog tour banner and a 3D book cover. Since her gallery is so huge, it is slowing down her site, so she is currently moving that section to Storenvy. Please email her at luvfisk at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing a pre-made or speaking to her about commissioned work.
