My cover designer, Nika Dixon, has been working hard on the covers for Lost Mothers and Every New Beginning. My agent, her assistant, Nika, and I agreed that the original covers that were used when these were published as e-books are great front covers. Since the books will now be published as physical books as well as reissued as e-books, back covers needed to be created.

I sent all of the new text to Nika, she set it in the back cover and added quotes to the front covers, and then patiently made changes to the copy and moved things around as I obsessed over wording and the placement of the various pieces of text. We now have covers that all of us agree look terrific. Two weeks until publication!

In which I blog about the days I write and the days I don’t write; about teaching about writing; about reading (which is never enough); and occasionally about music, because sometimes a three-minute song can tell as good a story as a novel.
