To celebrate the Summer 2010 release of She’s Gone Country, Jane invited her readers to embrace their inner country girl and creatively recreate the cover of the book. The entries truly captured the spirit of She’s Gone Country, each with their own unique twists, and accompanied by positive comments about the book!
Jane’s readers then became the judges and commented on their favorite entries. To select winners, Jane shortlisted the entries with the most votes and drew from that list at random.
Check out the winning entries:

Name: Bettina T.
Comments: ”Loved the book. Took my daughter with me for the pic. Hope there is a sequel to the book. Sophie was born when Shey Lynne was 40 and that is when I had my daughter Samantha. She wants to grow up so she can read Odd Mom Out and Gone Country. I know Mineral Wells and the area. Texas is a good choice for the setting. Thanks and I love the books.”

Obviously Jacquie is overjoyed by the opportunity to read She’s Gone Country. Thanks so much for always keeping me entertained with such engaging and fun characters and stories!”
Name: Pam N.
Comments: ”As a single mom living in Montana w/my 15 year old son, this book really hits home (as did Flirting w/Forty). Dating a team roper who used to ride bulls and broncs, so I can also relate to the highs and lows of the rodeo world – Ty Murray and Jewel were a very nice touch. PS My quarter horse mare is named Shay (registered name is Shabrie). Thanks for letting us know we’re not alone out here…looking forward to your next book!”
