From Savvy Authors:
Since giving me instruction is like talking to a brick wall, I’m always mildly surprised when anything comes of my attempts to make book covers for my friends, but I was particularly proud of the cover I made this week and wanted to share it.
This cover is for the short story, Wishing for Grace by Inez Kelley.
It’s a follow up to her Carina Press release, Turn It Up.
I like the image Inez chose. The chubby little hand, the light, all of it. I read the short, too. Even without having read Turn It Up (which released today), the short made me misty-eyed.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to speak at the September meeting of the Birmingham Books and Babes (BBB) Book Club. I’ll post reminders as the time draws nearer, but I also wanted to mention it so that travel arrangements can be made well in advance.
I was told by the coordinator there will be games and prizes, a Kindle among them, and lots of chatter. Sounds like a good time, right?
If you’d like to join in, the meeting will be held on September 24 from 1-4pm at Dales Southern Grill. I’m excited to check them out. I’ve never been there, but the website has the cool, retro feel I love.
I also got some exciting news this morning. I may be one of the few guest speakers who brings their own guest speakers, but I think the more the merrier in this case. I’ll be announcing my c0-guests? speaker speakies? on my website and blog soon.
