Today on Monday Musings, I am going to reveal the cover of my next book,
I'm With You!
If you follow my blog, then you know I go back and forth on my cover decisions. But I LOVE this cover and do NOT feel undecided on this choice at all!
Can three little words irrevocably change your life?
When the doctors inform Chloe Brennan that her pregnancy is “incompatible with life,” her subsequent choices will change her path forever.
She becomes one of the quiet, unsung heroes of this world, incredibly strong, yet somehow wrongly looked upon as damaged.
Three people will pierce Chloe’s existence: her husband, a stranger, and a precious baby.
One will say goodbye, one will say hello, and one will say both at the same time.
I’m With You is a novel about selfless love and the sacredness of life.
My daughter designs my covers for me and she does a fabulous job. The original background was a light pink. She superimposed one of her own photos of a night sky over the image and changed the color to grey. The results: a romantic starry night!
I love it!
With the the holidays just around the corner, and the fact that I'll have three of my children home and one grandbaby, I've changed my release date to:
March 1st, 2014.
Currently I am still editing this book. Then it will go to my editor. Once that's done it will be off to the ebook formatter. All of these things take soooo much time and I know that NOTHING will get done over the holiday season! March 1st is a safe, I-can-make-this-deadline prediction.
Sorry for the delay, but I'd prefer to put my best work out there and not rush the creative process!
A few thoughts about I'm With You:
When my daughter received the news that she was having a Trisomy 18 baby, we were devastated. "Incompatible with life" is the official medical term that refers to Trisomy 18.
After going through the experience with my daughter, I knew I wanted to write about it.
But, I write Romance novels and I wasn't quite sure how I would go about it.
Slowly, a story developed in my mind and I'm With You came about. It is a Romance novel that includes a Trisomy 18 story.
The Trisomy 18 story is based upon my daughter's experience, with her permission.
I am happy to help increase awareness of this devastating condition and to share the heartfelt emotions that accompany it.
The couples that face this diagnosis truly are an example to the world of selfless love.
So what do you think? Do you like my new cover?
