Happy Easter, all!
I hope you are having a good hare day.

No I did not hide an egg there!

Or there

What am I doing this lovely Easter weekend? Well, I played Mama Thursday night so my daughter is now able to work over the weekend. Hey, working is a good thing.

I am working to self-publish a book of my heart, actually 2 books of my heart. Why would I do that? The truth is that I have tons of rejections and want folks to be able to read my stories. I am still working on stories I hope to sell, of course.

I found a gem of a cover artist who asked me questions and prepared a mock up for me. Bet you'd like to see it. Well, not yet! As soon as it's ready, you'll see it here! Just a hint. It rocks, so far.

Now back to reading the directions to upload it or download it or whatever. I am so technically challenged!

Enjoy your

    MM, love the spring pictures and I'm glad your DD is doing well enough to work this weekend. I can't wait to see the finished cover and be able to download your book!

    Thanks, Scarlet! I'm always pleased when the kid can work.

    Her dogs are lucky she doesn't have Easter costumes for them!

    Reagan was after a squirrel, I suspect. He still hasn't caught it!

    I love you, too, Mary M!

    Looks like we're all just dying to see your cover, MM. When? When? Which story is it?

  10. Mary Marvella // April 24, 2011 at 9:41 PM  

    Hey, Barbara. This story is a novella. When the Demon Cat appears, someone dies. Nurse Sabrina has seen the that cat. While Sabrina tries to find the person the cat intends to take, she falls in love with Dr. Joe. Old journals she has found draw her to an Indian Brave from more than 200 years ago and the woman he loved, a young woman named Sabrina.
