Pieces of Night and Day...

I've been dwelling on finishing my novel The Fractured Hues of White Light, I'm in the pre-publication proof reading stage, hoping to catch those last little bits of this n' that...well, I've also been pondering book cover ideas...I've been in love with a yellow cover...but I'm also thinking about having a blue back cover...


I haven't finished anything new lately because of the intensive reading and fussing...

Then I rescued this little fella who beaned himself against my studio window this morning, I thought he was dead for sure, he hit hard and then fell (my studio is on the second floor, so it's a long drop for a little guy!) But when I checked, he was still breathing, and the little eye flickered open. I checked him over, carried him, protected him from the chill wind, and after a bit, sent him on his way... the full story is at my other blog Upstate Girl...and I also posted some nifty photos of stuff that I found around the acre last week...

I'm going back to reading chapter 10...

Thanks for stopping by!

both of the cover colors are lovely...will you be designing all parts of the cover?

So glad the little robin made it back out into the world...keeping him warm, out of the wind, was smart.

I just can't believe how many robins are visiting my yard today! They're very busy! They are feasting on the sumac berries and hopping all over the yard, and now that it's getting toward night, they're all singing goodnight!

My Fred will be designing the book cover once we figure out what painting (or paintings) we're going to use... but I've been wanting a yellow book for this because it's Samantha's favorite color (she's the main character). We'll see what happens, I'm really loving this yellow color, it's just so pretty!

You are living in a lively place with all the singing robins...we have doves and they sound so good too.
I love the yellow as well, I'll be watching for final decisions!

That is a beautiful image of the robin in the leaves and is complemented by the blue image above. I wish you well in your revising process.
