My Book Cover



Here it is—a first glimpse of the cover of my forthcoming short story collection, All In Together Girls. The standard publishing contract gives the author no say at all in the cover design, so it’s a nerve-wracking thing waiting to find out how it will look. What if, after all you’ve poured into your book, you don’t like the guise in which it is to be sent it out into the world? Happily, I need not contemplate that question any longer. I like it. I like it a lot.

The book is being published by Thistledown Press and it's due out at the end of March. Stay tuned for details of an April launch party. You're all invited!

That's a very beautiful cover. Is it an original drawing made for the book? Did the artist refer to one of your stories? I guess you must be so happy about the coming events!
