The mystery of the cover is finished now and the Cover Reveal Party can begin! We are going to have a giveaway, a tag, a post from St. Rachel (the cover-designer), and more! Not to mention the revealing of the cover itself. That being said...
(I feel like I ought to make you cover your eyes.)
I suppose I can't do that....
After long days of waiting, lots of excitement, and more than a few hints...here she is:
Didn't Rachel Rossano do an amazing job? I love how she listened to my initial lecture on what I wanted, looked at the mock-up Bree Holloway did for me, and brought this cover out of the muck and mire. Seriously, everyone. If you need a cover designer, please consider Rachel for the job - not only does she do good work, she's a dream to work with.
"A party without cake is just a meeting"I'm sorry I can't offer you cake (since I agree with the Queen of Cookery) but I can offer you a giveaway. What kind of giveaway? Well....
A Fly Away Home-themed "Coziness" package!
I know it has been awfully cold all across the country and there is more of Winter to come. (aren't you thankful for authors who release books "in the bleak mid-winter?" ;) This care-package has all the elements to make a winter evening perfect.
1.) Hazelnuts & Dark Chocolate bar
2.) Posh Stationery
3.) Nickleby Mug
4.) Tea, Charlotte
1.) This thing is like deconstructed Nutella, and is what fuels me while in a deep round of editing.
2.) I really think this requires little explanation. It's posh paper, perfect for a letter to a guy or girl. Ooh la la.
3.) This is the best bit. Perhaps you'll understand it better after you've read Fly Away Home, but Nickleby is Callie's black cat with whom she makes all decisions and carries on elaborate conversations. The mug says "What Would Nickleby Say?" and will probably be quite useful in making your own decisions. At any rate, it's adorable and hand-made and (so far) one-of-a-kind.
4.) That is certainly self-explanatory. Bigelow Earl Grey Tea which, while not rare, is worth-while.
This is a relatively short giveaway so please enter as soon as you can to insure you have a chance! I will be drawing a winner this Saturday, January 18th!
