This week’s theme is 2021 ln Your Rear View Mirror ~ looking back at a strange year.
2021 didn’t start well. After a couple of weeks of vet visits over Christmas and waiting for test results, we had to say goodbye to this lovely boy. He is much missed. As you can see, he liked his comforts so I hope there are plenty of sofas over the rainbow bridge.
My time isn’t my own since this little man made an appearance. There were several LurcherXSaluki pups looking for their forever homes and here we are! This is Flynn. Good job the others were spoken for 😉
I’m delighted to welcome Michele Gorman with her thoughts on the differing tastes in book covers, prior to the March 14th release of her latest book, The Truth About Love And Dogs. Over to you, Michele…
How often do you pick up a book because of the cover? I do it all the time. It’s what makes me take the time to look at the description, read the first few paragraphs, and, if I like all that I see, decide to buy it.
So, is it any wonder that covers cause us authors so much angst? They might even make us more nervous than writing the book itself. That’s because writing is an evolutionary process. It takes months to do, plus there are many rounds of editing. But the cover is the instant, one-and-only first impression your book will make. It’s like getting ready for a first date with someone that you really really want to impress! You’ve only got one chance.
