Thank goodness for deadlines! I’ve had Angela Bruggeman’s beautiful art for months, but didn’t manage to merge her two pieces into a cover until recently (thank you LDStorymakers Conference for lighting a fire beneath me). So here it is, ladies and gentlemen: Lexi Monarch, Book Two of The Winged series. I am so excited for you to read this book! If you haven’t already read Elissa Blue, you still have time (you’re going to want to read them in order). I’m crossing my fingers for a May 19th release date. As long as my fantastic editor (Melody Shellman) and I stay on schedule, we should make it. πŸ˜€

I have cover art for Book 2!!!

Tonight I picked up the two paintings that will become the cover art for Lexi Monarch: Book Two of the Winged! I am so excited! When I look at the face that the very talented Angela Bruggeman painted, I think: “Yes! That’s what Lexi looks like!” It is such a joyful feeling to see the character I imagined come to life in paint! πŸ˜€ Giddy happy dance!

Today is a good day :)

Sometimes discouragement gets the better of you as a writer, but today is a good day. The local book store and arts center requested a picture of my book cover and me to start advertising their Literary Festival/book signing, I have new reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, and the delightful Ash the Bookworm just designated Elissa Blue as the most beautiful book cover (https://ashthebookworm.wordpress.com/2017/08/13/beautiful-book-covers-tag/). πŸ˜€ This trifecta of good news comes at the perfect time as I’ve been feeling anxious about not having book two finished yet, and even had stress dreams last night about it. I thought summer was going to afford me multiple writing hours a day, but it just hasn’t happened. I need to start sleeping less (3 hours a night is plenty, right?) or invent time travel so I can still publish the second book in December. But I will not worry about that now, because today is a good day.

P.S. Forever thanks to Julie Jentzsch for this amazing cover. Your beautiful art gave me the courage to publish.
