With winter crashing into us every week, you’d think that hunkering down in a quiet corner would allow me to get this book done, but the corner I usually hunker down is so cold my hands freeze and the knuckles cramp up. Yet, I’ve managed to finish with the major edits and am now in the process of a run-through reading it out loud to make sure I have what the manuscript needs.
In between this, I’ve been thinking about an eye-catching book cover. For some reason, I was never wowed by book covers of beautiful people, so I’m looking for a few motifs to convey clues of the story. I made a list of things I want on the cover, but am having a hard time finding someone who has the ability to create what I want without me having to sell a kidney for payment. So, if you have any suggestions, I’m listening.
In a few days, I’ll work on drafting the blurb, and a short, clever synopsis. These tasks are never easy for me, but I must prevail. Of course, this is the first time, out of all three books, I have not become tiresome of the characters or plot during edits and that is a good omen.
This new book, Love As It Seems, has taken longer than usual because I want to be proud of it for the rest of my life. And am I asking for a miracle hoping the grammar mafia look past the imperfections of print because the story was greater than missing commas? Absolutely and that’s okay.
I’d like to shout out an appreciation to my fan base in Georgia for patiently waiting for this next story. I’ve been working hard to give you and all of my readers the best one yet, so you can see the extraordinary growth since 2012.
With that said, I should take this time to announce that Love As It Seems will be available June 1, 2015. I know that’s a long time to wait, but it’s worth it, you’ll see.
For your pleasure, I will tease and delight you with snippets of the characters and who has been my muse for their creation. You’ve already met Evan Pierce in an earlier post, but I will have more of him, too because he’s so darn sexy.
Until next time, stay safe and be warm!
