Tada! (and a cover reveal)

Every now and again, I add up the total of my typewritten words. Usually because I’m procrastinating, but sometimes just because I’m curious. Tonight, it was 75% the former reason – but I was still a little curious because it had been a while.

The results of that detour (since I was actually supposed to be writing)?

Technically, if you count the many spiral notebooks with handwritten “books” stuck in a box somewhere in my house, that total is probably closer to 1.5 million words – but I’ll never be bored enough to count those. I might type them out one day though, and I’ll for sure go through them and find out if any of the stories I wrote in my teens and early 20s can be rewritten in the future.

Right now though, that isn’t important. But since I’m in a mood to celebrate, I thought I’d share the cover for the book I hope to release before the end of the month. So… Here it is. What do you think.

  1. One of the best covers I’ve seen. I really like the way the clock blend in with the coman’s silhouette and the blurry lines that give the time travel effect. So cool! i also like the title and the font. Looking forward to reading this one!

    • That should be “blends” not “blend” and “woman’s” not coman’s. Sheesh, I must be more tired than I realized. Too tired to leave a coherent comment! So time to go to bed. I have a lot of catching up to do with my friends. Hope lots of other good things are happening for you and your family.

      Thanks, Lynn! I was very pleased with the way it turned out. I was hoping it would be released yet this month, but there are some timeline issues I really need to fix so maybe early September now.

      And LOL about the typos. I don’t know what I’d do without spell check here, on Facebook, or in my writing programs!

      Thanks, Ruth! I was very pleased with how it turned out. 🙂

      And thanks about the word count. I suspect you have at least twice that though. 😀
