It is finished

Tweet The cover art that is. It’s been finished for a while in fact, but I still haven’t settled on a font for the text so I’m going to wait just a bit longer before I post it. The thumbnail can act as a tease. We’ve also finished editing the first 10 chapters of White Shores, which means I’ll be releasing them as a preview here soon; hopefully in the next couple of days. That raises the question: how much should a preview give? Personally I hate the previews on Amazon that are comprised almost entirely of the copyright and table of contents.

Marjolein has spoiled a bit of said surprise more than I have if you want to check it out on her blog. But you’ve been warned via spoiler alert! I feel like we’re so close and I just don’t want to reveal it until it’s done. She’s doing an amazing job and I’m so blessed to have found someone who is so in tune. We share such a good wavelength, the whole process has been enjoyable and I can’t wait to have the final product in hand! I’ll keep you posted =)
