COVER REVEAL: I HAVE PEOPLE
I'm super excited to see this book published. It is a contemporary romance. I'm currently reading through my proof copy and working on a few final edits, but as soon as I press that little button that says, PUBLISH, it will be available to the public! I promised to have this book released in September, and I'm a little behind my time schedule. But, it will be available in paperback very soon! Ebook will take a little longer. One thing I've learned, publishing your novel takes a lot of time and patience. That's okay, though! As an author, you want to offer the best book possible to the reading public. It's much better to put your best work out there, than to publish something in a hurry, filled with careless mistakes.
Do you like my new cover? It's kinda cutesy. My daughter, who creates my covers for me, says it's her favorite of all of my covers. Although I Have People deals with a very serious subject, in the end it does have a happy ending. The cover speaks to the overall theme of the book. But, in the middle of the book, you may begin to wonder why I chose such a . . . happy . . . cover. I'm a happy ending lover, so my books will ALWAYS end happily!
It's the same with the inside of any and all books. Everyone has a different opinion. Writing is very subjective. What appeals to one may not appeal to another. I've come to accept this. It's not an easy thing to come to terms with, after all, you want everyone to love your book. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen!
As a writer, the best thing you can do is write from your heart. I Have People is a very personal book to me. It deals with abuse, temper, and out-of-control anger. It was therapeutic for me to commit my thoughts on the subject to paper.
I Have People is a women's journey to find love, to find the right man in her life. It's about having PEOPLE in our lives who love us and care for us.
