*Dabs a tear of happiness from her eye*
After wondering and dreaming of what it would finally look like, I'm pleased to say I'm happy with the way it turned out. The cover artist, Patricia Lazarus, did an amazing job. Honestly, I was scared to death. I'd heard horror stories from many first time authors who had little input in the design of their first covers. How disheartening to have your name printed on the cover of a book you'd never pick up if you hadn't been the one to write it. I'm so blessed that this wasn't the case with me. The fine folks at Tell-Tale Publishing listened to my input, and designed a cover that I'm proud to say is mine. Thank you, Patricia, for your hard work, and thank you, Tell-Tale Publishing for believing in me, and helping my dream become reality.
Well, I'm finishing up edits, and crossing my fingers for a December release of Saving Elizabeth. I think it will make a great Christmas gift for teens, or anyone else interested in YA Paranormal Romance. I'm learning from others who have gone on before me in this journey called publishing, and I'm gearing up for the PR side of things. It's going to be a whirlwind, but I'm excited to get started! Many of you have been with me through thick and thin. You read the very first chapter that was ever posted on inkpop, and you rejoiced with me when it won its coveted gold star. I just want to say thank you for your love and support. There's only one question. You still with me? If so, buckle up and hold on! It's going to be an exciting ride! Until then, spread the word, share the love, and keep on reading and writing! Best wishes!
