Brick Wall

I've hit it, the brick wall. I can't seem to write a word. Save for this probably small blog post. I've been trying to work on The Wedding and I'm stuck. I know where I want to go with the novel, I'm just not getting there. Maybe I need to take a week break. It's so irritating the words are there they just are not flowing right. Oh well enough of my rant. I WILL GET THERE, and soon.

The Tale of A Book and Three Covers

      When I first started writing Rescued I never once dreamed I would publish it. It was just something I was doing for my friends and finished for a great man who is no longer with us. He would always say, "You better finish that book June." June is my nickname for those who don't know. He would also say. "The day you finish this book I probably will be dead." How sad it is that this is true.
       Rescued holds a special place in my heart because I finished it for a good friend, my brother in law Kamal Moore, he passed away in 2002. I needed to finish it for him and I'm glad I finally did. The thing about it was however, once it was completed, it sat for awhile. How could I put it out there, what if people hated it? I asked myself this question up until several months ago when I decided to take a leap and just do it! I know he would be proud. I doesn't matter if it's a great success.
       Of course there is a but in there right. Yeah there is, all that being said, I wanted something that would look great on the outside and the inside and that journey has been a headache but well worth it! Formatting, editing all aside it was the COVERS THAT DROVE ME CRAZY!!!! It was so hard to have what I envisioned put into art.
Cover 1
      The cover for Flowers of the Bayou wasn't so bad to be truthful but Rescued was crazy. I spent over nine months and a lot of money of covers. Before I found the right woman for the job. Dawn was a miracle worker and below you will see why. She took what I described to her and made it come to life in a wonderful portrait. Now while some of the covers are not bad they just weren't for Rescued. Take a look and tell me what you think. Did I make the right decision?

Cover 2 HMMMM
Cover 3 I love this just not for the cover I still use it.

Cover 4 Love it just not for Rescued

Out now on Createspace or Kindle for free.

Margaret/Louisiana Iris

     Her whole life Margaret knew she was going to marry Jasper. The trouble was convincing him of this fact. No longer the gangly spying child he once knew Margaret was determined to show Jasper that she was a woman. Even more than that the woman for him. Now if she could just get him to agree to a wedding.

Amelia/The Magnolia

    If someone asked her to give her right arm to get away from her Aunt Lorraine Amelia was sure she would do it. Trying to breath and live under the woman's rule was near impossible. And now that Jacob a man twice her age has set his mind on making Amelia his and Lorraine  could not be happier Amelia is sure that one day soon she would need to break free. Still for now all she could do was plan for an escape or perhaps just maybe she just might get rescued.

Jessie/The Wildflower

    No one told Jessie what to do and that went for Anthony Wilson as well! So when the man told her to stay in the house and he'd be back for her of course she had to follow him. What she found him doing in the backwoods was more than surprising. She'd never have guessed she would have fallen for a bayou bandit.
