This reminds me of the Vigil cloth I did so many years ago for Jim. He's been very present in my thoughts lately. This time, I'm keeping vigil for my country.
I'm still editing my book. The manuscript feels like a plowed field in New England. Every time you turn around, new rocks come out of the furrows. A writer's best friend is an eagle-eyed proofreader.
The cover designer has returned the first draft and I am joyously stupefied at how he's taken my flaky synopsis and turned it into ART. I wish I could show it but there is much marketing mumbo-jumbo about keeping covers on the down-low. I'm still learning this stuff, which is a lot harder than the actual writing.
If you want to be notified about the progress and when it will ultimately be available (Spring-ish?) email me and I promise to send no garbage.
The weary travelers, crafted by Dee Mallon, will get tucked away in the Christmas box for next year.
(I had to rescue them from Salem. She was going to lick them or eat them. I didn't wait to see which)
