Tomorrow, I’ll have the grand prize winner for you, but I ran out of steam today after making that new page with the catagory winners on it. Being one’s own webmistress has its pros and cons.
But as promised, here’s the cover for the next Madison book, EARLY TO DEATH, EARLY TO RISE. I love it! I went pursing through the YA shelves this last weekend to study the covers, and I love it even more. It’s got the facial close up that’s very popular right now, and the broody eyes, but the cover is light and bright, like Madison’s outlook despite the trials of being dead. Angels, not vampires, it says without words, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
I hope you all had a great weekend. It was unseasonably warm where I live, so I divided my time between raking leaves from my garden beds and baking. Made some cookies, two loaves of French bread so I could have sandwiches from it, and tried my hands at pretzels. I’d never made pretzels before. I’m going to have to practice them because they tasted great, and I want to get them looking great, too. Fun to make. I had to boil them for thirty seconds in baking soda water. Very cool.
