Days of Future Past

The release of my next book is delayed due to several different events, the most disruptive being a major plumbing failure in my condo, resulting in damage on all three floors. Walls and flooring were removed and it took weeks to dry out and then had to be put back together. Something on which I am still working. It appears that it will be a very long process. Living in a hotel for several weeks without my computer meant limited access; alas my ‘antique’ laptop and spotty wifi made maintaining the blog a bit more than a challenge.  But I’m home now and putting it all back together, albeit slowly. Thankfully, my Rambi cat seems no worse for the wear and is back to normal.

On to more cheerful things. While the launch of my newest book, Days of Future Past, is delayed for another couple of months, I couldn’t be happier with it, thanks to the help I got from Victoria Lucas, my story consultant and Julie Luongo, my editor. And Janet Taylor (of Pride and Prejudice calendar fame) is creating the cover. Isn’t it beautiful? And wait ’till you see the back, it’s amazing. A picture created almost entirely by Janet. A wall to a secret garden.

Later this month I’m joining the Christmas in July Hop being hosted by I am a Reader not a Writer and Laurie Here, keep the dates in mind and join us.

    The cover is beautiful! Nice work Janet T. Couldn’t have made a better choice Sally. I’d love to sit there and have some tea.

  2. Sheila L. M. says:

    Yes, the cover is just gorgeous! Looking forward to more news about this. And…so sorry to hear about the condo problems, but I do know what you are going through as we had flooding when my children were you in our newly finished basement area. Good luck.

    So looking forward to this book Sally. Glad to hear Rambi is doing well and you are back into your condo. The artwork is gorgeous!

  4. Janet T says:

    What a mess you have been dealing with, Sally. Glad you are back in the condo and that Rambi is doing fine. Hope you get everything back to normal soon.

    Thank you, Deborah, and Sheila too. Didn’t Sally pick a beautiful painting, Carole! I’m anxious to see the finished paperback. It is a fantastic story and I can hardly wait for its release!

    Just to clarify, Deborah, I did not do the painting on the front cover. I only wish I could paint like that. I just used the painting that Sally found to make her cover. I mostly do drawings with soft core pencils these days.
