old+new=final

due out may 1st from quarry books!


my editor, designer and publisher all took into account your comments (130+!) and decided to combine the old and new covers to create this final one! thank you again for all of your creative suggestions and valuable input!

there's much more to fill you in on about the process, discussions and decisions that went into this cover, but for now i'm just happy to be able to say it's DONE and i LOVE it! : ) phew!

so i'll be back with all the "behind the scenes" book details, lots of links and more after the little holiday break.... so much to tell you!

i don't know about you, but there are still errands to be run, gifts to be wrapped, popcorn to be strung and houses to be cleaned... ah! twas the day before the day before christmas, and we're running around as always! i do love the hectic excitement surrounding these days... sparkling lights in trees, fluffy white flakes and family close by to visit with make it all feel magical and cozy.

wishing you all things merry and bright... xo *s

    I'm waiting for your book to be released, because Amazon shipping is very high for me, but I can't wait to order it when it's out!!

    Happy Holidays :)
