~ ~ TA-DA! ~ ~



Well, it's here...  Crimson has released the cover of my book!  Melinda is due out (in ebook) on October 8th.  I still can't believe it's happening...but from the looks of things, it's real.  *smile*  There seems to be a book with MY name on it being manufactured.  Though you have to look pretty hard to find that name.  (heehee)  Have you ever noticed that as a writer gains in popularity, his name grows on the cover of his books?  You haven't?  Well, next time you have the chance, check out the latest John Grisham book, for example.  You might be surprised to notice that his name is ALWAYS larger than the title of the book!  (Because it's what 'sells.')  The title of the book - and the art (which is pretty nonexistent at this point) matter little at all.  It's the Grisham name that does the work. 

But it makes no difference to me.  My name is on there, and it's a challenge to see how big it will be on the next cover.  *smile*   One baby step at a time. 

Please celebrate with me!  If you're a writer, let me know whether you've experienced this part of the journey, or if it's still an expectation.  Have faith  - if it can happen to me...it can happen to YOU!
