After a lot of work from the lovely cover artist, Char (check out her website here for more information), I have to say, I heart this cover. I would definitely recommend this cover artist. Even though I'm very picky when it comes to covers (I think she will agree), I really enjoyed working with her.
Anyway, this cover has helped propel me forward in my editing, and thanks to this lovely Spring Break from student teaching (THANK THE LORD!) I can now catch up on editing and writing my books again. And promoting. And playing on my Wii.
Blurb: Coming soon! :)
Which bring me to another big chunk of news: I'm going to be published in an anthology. Well, actually two! The first one is for Fantasy/Science Fiction. Remember Iwishacana/Acanawishi? Well, I took the prologue and entered it into the contest and it won! I'm so glad to hear that Iwishacana/Acanawishi is savable (and has a great concept) and hopefully, I'll get it back on this site and back online.
I don't know when this will happen, but I have the feeling it will be before Christmas. No promises though! At least you guys will be able to buy the prologue and see what's it like!
Anyway, the other anthology is inspirational. I took some of my old poems and entered it into a contest. As you all know, I'm a very religious person so when I get inspired by the Bible (the whole struck-by-lightening concept rings a bell), I write poems. So I picked the strongest two poems I have and they both got selected!
It's just nice to see that my work (poems, short stories, novellas, and novels) are getting the recognition they deserve.
Anyway, there's my bit of news and my lovely cover. :) Yippee skippee!
