Designing this cover has become the bane of my existence. Perhaps I shouldn't put too much thought into it - maybe something completely random like a ring on a black cover? I've been doing the mock-ups to get concept ideas, hoping something will jump out at me.
It feels weird not editing and re-writing. So much so that last night I took my laptop to bed and started re-reading book 3. I seriously need to stay away and take a breather, but I can't help myself; I feel listless when I'm not involved in writing a book.
Holy smokes! It's winter! Freezing temperatures hit this week and it's been a struggle to get out of my warm bed in the morning. Even more of a struggle when I have to stand outside of my car pumping gas with the wind blasting me in the face.
The best part about this time of year is how cheery everything looks around the neighborhoods. I love all the lights (even the atrocious ones), but I'm not a fan of inflatable yard art. Of course, I'm not one to talk. I put up blue lights in ONE window (count them: one). To get the full visual - I have a back door and a window on either side. So, the other window is not decorated..lol Sheer laziness on my part, but I lost a little bit of sanity the day I had to nail those things in (and tape them) to the window.
Another reason I love this time of year: Slipper socks! Those and my badass over the knee socks (thank you sockdreams.com and Target)
On the downside: I have a cat who eats plastic. (all kinds of plastic). So having a plastic tree out is like putting Justus in front of a plate of ribs.
