I sent Bound to my editors this week and it will be released in Spring 2013. Once the editing fairies have time to finish the content read, I will make the necessary changes, and we move to completing the grammar check and finalize the novel. When I have a more concrete release date I will print it here, so stay tuned, but I am hoping for a release date in March or April of 2013.
I think every writer, and as someone once pointed out even artists, contract a creativity block. So I sometimes need ideas when I write. Last year, I requested a Collection of Funny, Family Sayings from my facebook fans and friends and I'm happy to report many of them made it into Bound. I used some of the ideas in the actual story but other sayings are now the chapter titles. Did you submit one?
When I published Leaning, Jennifer Golan created some cover rough drafts. I just couldn't choose so I uploaded my favorite two cover options and I put it up for a vote. The tree garnered the most votes and it graces the cover of my first novel, Leaning.
Jennifer is now working furiously on cover options for Bound. I received six possiblities last week and managed to narrow it down to two. (Have I mentioned how talented, Jen is? Some of the covers were so striking I wanted to hang them on the wall.) Once she has two roughs of the prospective covers, I will upload those covers here, to my website, and put it up for a vote. The cover with the most votes will be the one I use for Bound.
My next post should be the announcement of the vote on the cover for Bound. See you then!
