Cover Reveal

There are few things that get me more excited for a book (my own or anyone else’s) than a cover reveal. And I didn’t think I could love cover #2 more than I loved cover #1. But that’s what Meredith Ferrill does – she creates beautiful, fun, interesting things that blow me away.

So without further ado, here is her awesome cover art for Descended:

This is one of those moments when I’m both thrilled at the reality of being ready to publish, and dreading letting the book venture out into the world because I’m not actually ready at all. But that’s the way it goes, and I imagine it doesn’t get any easier, no matter how many times you do it.
Side note about Meredith: she’s a writer and an artist, but one of the coolest things she’s working on right now is her year without plastic. I’ve mentioned her blog here before, but it’s worth linking to again: DumpingPlastic.com. Earth Day (the anniversary of her starting this project) is only a couple months away, and watching her take on this challenge for the past ten months has been fascinating and thought-provoking.

Announcements!

I’m back! It’s been a couple months, but I promise I haven’t been idle. I’ve been editing book #2 and getting it ready for publishing! This weekend I’ll be meeting with my awesome writing friend and artist Meredith Ferrill, who will be helping me design the new cover. And then… in mere weeks, Descended will drop. (People still say that, right?)

I’ve also been spending the last several months baking a baby 🙂 I haven’t announced it here yet, but we’re expecting a little one in early April, so my brain has mostly been occupied by painting, nesting, shopping, and general freaking out. But the due date has given me a much needed kick in the (growing) butt to get this book out before baby. IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. I’m sure of it.

I’ll post the cover and the expected release date very soon. Meanwhile, I’ll be posting a sneak peak over on Wattpad! Stay tuned!
