Today I am waiting. And that wait seems to go on forever.
Waiting is not my best skill. When we were queueing for qualities, someone forgot to tell me about the patience queue. I have none – and it’s a thing we all need. Strange thing is, when I worked in the hospital I had it in abundance for my patients. Home? Children? Myself? Not so much.
Anyway, today I’d hoped to show you the cover for my new YA title which goes to press at the end of April and hits the shelves in July. Unfortunately, I can’t. After having a cover I really did quite like, they’ve decided to change it. That’s fine. Apparently the original might not appear to the target audience. Since marketing isn’t on my skill list either, I have to accept that and wait…..
In the meantime, they’ve sent my book out for others to read. Because this is a Young Adult book, that means they send books out to children.
So instead of showing you my cover, I’ll show you first piece of fan mail I’ve received as a Young Adult author.
I love it. The girl read the book, loved it, sent me a letter and drew me a picture of what she thinks the cover should look like. I won’t publish the letter because it has her details on it, I’ll only say her name is Megan and I am so happy she’s read it and enjoyed to it.
