I got my co-VER! I got my co-VER! Tra la la la la la la...

A sneak peak at Autumn Winfred Oliver Does Things Different is over there.  I hope you like the cover as much as I do!  LOVE IT!  

Getting a cover for this book is about one of the coolest things that's happened to me as a writer.  I've been working on this story since 2001, and to see it come to life like this is, well, like watching those tiny bulbs you planted in October bloom into fabulous tulips in March.  

And that about covers it!  ;-)

Doesn't it feel more real with a cover?! And an absolutely adorable cover to boot!! Congrats!

Kristin Tubb said...

It *does* feel more real. I felt like I couldn't start promoting to bookstores, libraries, etc. before. Now I'm fully armed and ready to make a pest of myself! :-)

Thanks for stopping by, y'all!

Thanks, everyone! I did want to let everyone know that I found out who designed the cover - her name is Merrilee and her blog is www.mermag.blogspot.com, if you'd like to see more of her stuff. She's my hero! :-)
