Exciting day! I’m finally ready to reveal the cover and title of my next novel.
This one has been in the works for a lot of years, with the concept gelling in my head about six years ago. But I got frustrated with it after about 85 pages and set it on the shelf. Then, a bit ago, I picked it back up and decided the time was finally right to finish the story.
Next week I’ll post a blurb about what it’s about. Then the week after that, I’m hoping it will be available for all to read! Assuming I don’t get sidetracked by summer and kids and the responsibilities of motherhood. Those always have to take precedence over the good ol’ writing hobby, of course. (Note: swimming and piano lessons and chore lists are all going pretty well this summer, thank you for asking. And my 16 year old did get 100% on his first College Algebra test he’s taking at the college. His Trig is going well too. Life is all right.)
And now… I present for your consideration, the cover of The Lost Art: A Romantic Comedy.
What do you think? I think kudos to Laura Tolman for her mad skills in designing it. Thanks, Laura!
And yeah, soon I’ll be getting on the ball and writing up a blurb so you’ll know what it’s about. But I can leak at this time that there’s a makeover (another makeover novel, what?), a stolen painting, a billionaire and an FBI agent. So, maybe that’s fun, right?
Happy summer to you all!
