First off, Happy Father's Day to those dads who read my blog! Hope you had a fabulous day spending time with your kids.
I just got off the phone with my dad and surprised him with my own special gift: a dedication in Parallel, because he's not only my dad, but my former high school physics teacher and since my book deals with alternate realities, I thought the dedication was fitting. And to my surprise, he was pleased. He wanted to know if it would be available in print (yes, it will be) and I promised him a couple books to do giveaways for his classes, after I assured him it was YA and appropriate for high school students.
In other news, I got in contact with a fabulous and talented cover artist, Sarah at Warm Onion Design, to create the cover for Parallel and I am thrilled to be working with her. You can check out her amazing covers here. While I enjoy doing my own cover art, my knowledge is limited to ebook front covers and am clueless on how to proceed with doing a full cover for print, so in an effort to save what precious hours and whatever sanity I have left, I decided I wanted to work with Sarah on this project.
Two chapters left folks! That's all I need to wrap it all up and send to my patient beta-readers. How long will that take? I'm not sure, as a pantser, I could finish tomorrow, or next week. Either way, Parallel should be done by the end of the month. Yea! I know, I keep promising, and I really hope I can live up to that promise.
