Alizon and I (Alizon of C & D Editing https://www.facebook.com/CdEditing?fref=ts) got together yesterday to work on the cover art. We both had the same idea at the beginning (talk about being on the same wavelength? Me and Alizon are!) and through brainstorming-well, not actual (guided) brainstorming, more like thinking out loud turning into more ideas-we settled on an idea we both LOVE! I am SO lucky that my editor lives within walking distance!
The cover won’t be all wispy and sparkly like many of the current covers (I do like those kind, they just don’t fit with this book), it is real and IMO will make the reader feel-just from looking at the cover-that he or she *knows* this girl. I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve come up with so far! She’ll be here again today for more work on it and I am literally hurriedly scheduling the rest of my day to be done by the time she gets here!
More on this soon, as well as other announcements about the book in general!
