Wordless Wednesday And Great News!

Well, I promised some good news on the novel front, so for Wordless (Semi) Wednesday, I had to share!  After finishing my novel, I was on the hunt for a good illustrator to do the cover art.  Guess who I chose?  Inslee Haynes!  I’m so honored to have her doing my cover art.  I couldn’t wait to share the news with all of you!  If you aren’t familiar with her work, check out these wordless images.

I’m so excited to release the novel.  We have a tentative date of April 15.  It will be available on Amazon as an Ebook and in paperback version.  Thank you all for your support.  I can’t wait for you to read it!  If you love Inslee’s art, stop by her blog and let her know I sent you!  Have a great day, and don’t forget to vote for Fine Man Friday!
Lastly, if you haven’t heard, Hollywood Legend Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79 from heart failure.  I will doing a tribute post to her and her career on Saturday, so please make sure to come by then. 
I also forgot!!!  I’m featured on my friend Michelle’s blog today, Oh Mishka.  Please go check it out and tell her I sent you, her blog is adorable!

  21. Gorgeous art! Your book will have a beautiful cover, no doubt.

    I’m here from Semi Wordless Wednesday. Have a wonderful week. =)

  22. I have always dreamed of writing a novel and having it published. I am an avid reader and can only imagine how awesome it would feel to hold my very own novel in my hands. You are such an inspiration. I can’t wait to read this little jewel of yours. I’m sure it will be fantastic!!! And you made a great choice for the cover art. Her stuff is AMAZING!!! Your novel is bound to be as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.
    Anyways to answer your question I do have a twitter. However I don’t use it that much currently mainly because I don’t have a lot of friends on there. @PrncessMelissaC is my username on there. I would love to meet up sometime soon. I also have a facebook if that’s an easier way to plan things.

  23. Ok so I am brand new to your blog, but congratulations on completing a novel!! That is so exciting and a major accomplishment. Also, nice choice on the artist! Her work looks lovely.
