I’m working on a few manuscripts simultaneously, which should be confusing but my brain seems to be able to handle it. It must be from work–I have to juggle so many projects at once and keep everything straight. Maybe that’s why I get bored when I only have one thing to work on. I suspect I have a touch of ADD–I have a hard time concentrating, I leave things unfinished in my private life because other things distract me so easily. Good thing I have Tord to remind me to finish what I start. 🙂

So now that I found all the chapters of Playing House and I’ve started going through them to see where they need fine tuning, I thought the best way to stay on track was to give myself a deadline and to make a cover. But I couldn’t find a cover image that really captured the mood I wanted.

In my istockhphoto.com search, I found illustrator Sue Traynor. She does great vector images that are fun, colorful and flirty–perfect for a novel about lost loves reconnecting in a small town in Vermont. I found out Sue does custom images and contacted her about my story and what I was looking for. After exchanging a few emails and reference images, we decided we’d work together on this. I’m super excited! We start next week. Soon I will be able to share with you the cover of Playing House, which I want to launch in August.

Also,  A Little Night Music, the other novel I am finishing up, will have a cover reveal soon too. Possibly by the end of the month! 🙂
