Just When I Told You It Was Safe...

Well, okay, what I actually said was that I didn't spend much time talking about my books. But I did see my new cover (for the upcoming March book) up on Amazon, and that's always either an exciting day or a letdown. Kind of a hold-my-breath and hope for something good mystery. In this case, I'm pretty happy. The artist clearly used the images of the hero and heroine I sent in. And while the heroine isn't really that pregnant in the book (she's only a little bit pregnant LOL), I understand that if you're going to say she's pregnant in the title, readers will expect her to look pregnant. Also, I didn't choose the title (I think my original title was The Heir's Pregnant Cinderella, but I wasn't exactly married to it). Anyway, I thought I'd share, so you can be some of the first to have a look at the new one.
We now return you to your usual blog entries after this brief interlude, but I had to post this. Because even though I may appear unaffected by this business of publishing most of the time, I still get excited whenever a new cover appears. It's a bit like opening a present to see what you received.

Congratulations, Myrna! I don't know what is in the background, but it will become clear(er) to me once I read your book, I'm sure.
My daughter's hair was red and about that length. She recently had 16" cut off so that it could be sent away to make two wigs for cancer patients (as they require 8" to weave one wig), yet she still had a pony tail (small though it is) to continue growing it back easily. Pretty cool!

I hope you are pleased with the cover because I find it very appealing.

Laney4, that's just so beautiful. What a wonderful thing to do.

Elaine, the background confused me, too. I had to look it up to remember that I had specified a fountain and the hero's new hotel/spa in the background (although it doesn't exactly match the hotel description).

That's so giving of your daughter. I'm glad she still had some ponytail left. And she was able to help two people. That's awesome!

Mary, thank you. Yes, I was rather pleased. Sometimes I'm not (usually it's something with the hero not looking quite right), but this one worked for me and I like the colors.
