Short Story Cover Art Preview

Geez! It’s like a ghost town over here. Sorry guys!

I’ve been editing my young adult novelette while working with a few different artists on the cover art. I think I’m finally ready to publish, but thought I’d post the covers and synopsis to give you an idea about what’s been in my head for the past few months.

As you can see, I’m indecisive about the cover design, mainly the title. Below are only three of the many variations sitting on my hard drive.

Feel free to let me know which design you like better.

I’m planning on releasing the story January 1, but could be sooner.


Synopsis: For Brooke and Paige, life in a small border town is getting boring. The same faces cruising the boulevard and getting drunk in the desert just feel so ‘high school’ until a trip to a Mexican nightclub changes the way they view life, love and freedom.




























Writing More Than One Book At A Time

Okay, so I sat down to work on the sequel to my children’s book yesterday and wasn’t ‘feelin’ it.’ Instead, I opened up a whole new document and started writing dialogue for a different book entirely.

Has anyone else had this happen?

The flow of words was so natural and I knew exactly what I wanted to relate to the reader. Granted, it is a far cry from my children’s book, but it is has more of me in it, which I think is why it was so easy to start. Now, to keep it going. I estimated that if I wrote between 1500 and 2000 words per day that I could be finished in thirty days. Of course, we’ll see if I can stick to that schedule since I have three other WIP’s all at different stages of completion.

I’m focusing on them in order of ‘easability.’ Is that a word? Basically, the easier it is for me to write (ideas coming at me clearly) the higher it is on my list. I’ve also determined when I can work on certain books, such as naptime for YA novel and bedtime for children’s book. I’ve reserved morning tea time for the new book I started, which doesn’t leave any time for my Romance novel, which has been hanging in the balance for months. Oh well. I guess I’ll have to make due until Nursery School starts.
