There is an image of a Deep Blood Red Rose. At first, the rose threw me. I thought, hmm, a rose? Not sure. But then it took hold of me—the dress Sweetie wore to school with the roses that had turned old blood color. The symbol of love (and not romantic love, but the love between friends). The beauty. The Blood. The Burning Fire. The delicate petals that also hold the thorns. So many things popped into my head with that rose, I knew it was perfect—and as I write this, I am hoping the cover does stay as I saw it. And, as soon as all is approved and completed, I’ll post the image for y'all to see.
This just may be my favorite cover. I can’t wait to see it on the printed book, for only then can I, you, see the full impact of it.
I want to mention quickly here that the Book Club I Skyped with on Thursday afternoon went so very well. I was delighted to meet these women—they made me feel comfortable, made me laugh, and made me think. Always, always, readers make me think deeper about my books. I want to thank the Minnesota Book Club (and if you all have an official name-let me know!) for the opportunity to speak with them. If you have a book club that’s too far for me to travel to, Skyping is a wonderful way to connect!
Now, you tell me: What are you up to? I am so trying to visit all of your blogs, and on Facebook & Twitter, etc, and know I am behind. But, I will be stopping by even if it takes me a little longer. Things have been moving so fast and furious lately! What are you doing as the summer moves into fall (already! LAWD!). Projects?(and it doesn’t have to be writing projects). Trips? New Things on the Horizon? What? Or you can tell me: “Go by my blog, Miz Kathryn, and find out for yourself! Huhn!” Laugh . . .
