What’s blue and red and makes you wonder: who’s that girl?

This is what my book looks like!!!!!! (Insert full paragraph of exclamation points.)

You can even pre-order it!!!

But this is what it looks like!

(And, no, I don’t know who the girl is, though she does look weirdly like my own AppleApple. The publisher designed the cover, not me.)

Dreamy, dreamy.

This was not the post I began writing this morning. That post started like this:

“Long week. General gloom. Set alarm, rose early. Glad for that.
Snow falling. Cough cough cough from my constant companion.”

And went on in the same vein. Which is true enough. But I’m glad the cover popped into my inbox and interrupted my cranky, restless mind with a splash of colour. And, oh, that dreaming girl. I’d like to just go be her for a little while.

    PS – I have a feeling there is a lot of familiar in this book.

    At times I felt like I was walking a tightrope, Katie … but the end result is pretty distant from the real. Familiar is a good word for it, I think. I wonder what you’ll think when you read it?

    Yay!!!! Tell your friends, Tricia! Wish it could arrive in time for Christmas …
