I got the latest book cover design yesterday, but didn't see it until I opened my e-mails this morning. This is the final for the front cover. I'm sure there will be a full out cover with the back as well as soon as it's ready. So feel my excitement to see the front cover. Now to get the final edit and revision completed and I'll be holding that book in my hands. I did get another 8 chapters worked on yesterday. I'm now in the heart of the area needing the most revision. I had worked on that first when I got the news that changes were needed, so hopefully there won't be a lot that still needs to be done. But I know there is still work to be done in that area. How is your day going? Thanks for reading

I love the cover! It certainly catches the eye. Did you choose it yourself? Have to get off here soon. We are meeting friends for dinner midway between us and New York City. I must beauify and not get stuck in traffic.

I chose it through the many designer options and getting it tweaked. Now I just need to see the whole - front and back together. I'm looking forward to that. Enjoy dinner with friends.

@DianneN , that is true, it seems the character in the book is longing for freedom and liberty. She wants to find her own way and destiny.The plot might be at a suspense mood.

@cacay1 I have a couple links on comments to the back cover copy, which I hope goes along with the picture on the book.

It's a good cover, it makes you curious to know why the woman is standing by the sea looking at the ship.

very intriguing - I like the colours that goes with the title, takes the harshness out of the word 'cry' but leaves a person wondering on the freedom

Thank you. I posted the back cover copy a while back, it would tell you why Freedom.
This is what I've been doing today, up until I left for the Mother/Daughter/Friend banquet at the Eagle's Club. At my friend's suggestion, the back cover copy...

@Hannihar Yes it will. I remember that feeling when I held Scarred in my hands for the first time. It was an awe inspiring moment for me. I expect no less when this one is finally in my hands.

Dear Valerie Your cover is awesome! I would like to read at least one of your books. It's a pity that - They are obviously written in English (for me, big problem, on paper, missing the translator!) - You could never send one of them to my home, the shipping cost should be too high! Do not worry! There will be the day and time that I'll can do it

@just4him Don't worry. You always have done your best. I just wanted to know your opinion of what do you think about if I re-start to drinking again. However, I do not believe it is postive. Right?

Yes, and my friend proofed it for me, but as I've been reading it through for a final edit and revision, I've been seeing a lot she missed. So it's a good thing I'm doing this over.
