Whirlwind Cover is Here!

It’s here!

There are few things that bring home the fact my book is really, truly going to become a reality more than the selection of a cover.  I’m excited, happy, and yes, a little terrified, knowing I’ll be holding a book with this fabulous cover and my name on it in just over two weeks!

Luckily I have lots to do before then, otherwise I’d probably explode!

So, what do you think?  Do covers influence your book buying choices?  How about for ebooks?

Woo Hoo!

More Tips and Tricks: Give Yourself a Break #1

My first Black Tulip

Flowers are nature's smiles

Give yourself a break #1: Buy yourself flowers.  Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big believer in flower power.  Flowers are simple and beautiful, and make the receiver feel special. So why not treat yourself?  In the midst of all the red and green, a bouquet of purple tulips or yellow roses or white daisies can be just the thing to put a smile back on your face when one child has Scotch-taped the other to the dog.
