Yesterday I got my first glimpse of what the final version of the HOLLOWS INSIDER is going to look like, and it totally delighted and bedazzled me. (Seriously, I almost cried into my keyboard.) I couldn’t even look at it objectively for things I wanted to shift and change, because it was like . . . wow. All that work I put in not knowing if it was going to fly or not . . . and it looks fabulous. I’m going to look at it again today, but I don’t think there will be many tweaks coming from me.
I’m sorry for being such a tease since I don’t have anything to show you yet, but be sure to stop back in on Monday. Remember ages ago when I said I was going to need your help in supplying a few pictures for the world book? It’s about that time. I need a couple of days to figure out how I want to do this, but if your picture is chosen to be included, (and you sign the release forms) your picture will be part of it. I’ll be running 6-8 separate contests, and the winners will be the ones who look closely at what I’m asking for and supply it. Winners will also get a full color, signed page from the upcoming graphic novel, BLOOD WORK as well, as sort of a thank you from Guy and myself. (I’ll post them for your perusal as well.) Monday. I’m hoping to start this on Monday.
Outside it’s still cold, but close inspection has reveled that my ornamental cherry tree is getting ready to bloom. It’s a new plant for me, so I’m eager to see it through an entire growth cycle. Last year, the chipmunks ate the fruit, and I think that’s cool.
