I have been out of the blogosphere (is that still a word?) for a very long time. VERY long time. You may have noticed. BUT! I have big news!! Last night, I finally finally finally completed my rough draft and I am entering the editing phase! I’m thinking that I’ll be ready for a summer release! Whaaaaat? Super excited about this. Like, I can’t even tell you how excited.
So in honor of this major step in the process, I’m ready to do a cover reveal! My AMAZING cover artist, Leslie, has had this ready for me for quite some time and I feel like I’m finally living up to my part of this. 🙂
Oh! I just realized this is a title reveal too! So here’s the scoop on that…
I was pounding my head against a wall trying to come up with the title for my sequel to Drawn In. I was completely stuck on the idea that I wanted all 3 books to begin with “Drawn.” It just made sense. But a dear friend of mine interceded and compelled me to keep pushing for something stronger. I ignored her for a while. But then I realized that she was right. I was boxing myself in in a way that didn’t need to happen. And so I went back to square one and started re-imagining what it could be if I let myself out of that box. And I went back to the Prophecy in book one…
Hair of Fire, Eyes of Ice,
With her family she’s all alone.
She’s been drawn in to a time forgotten
But paper dreams will lead her home.
And there was my title. And I love it. It feels right, and it feels specific, and it feels like mine. And so I give you… the cover of A Time Forgotten.
I’m in love with it. My favourite part is the small patch of starry sky shining through in the corner. SO beautiful! And do you notice the Spiral Spire there on the Citadel? And who is this reaching out, inviting you to join? Is this Alex? Is it Seth? Someone new? Hmmm…
Feel free to comment! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
