So...I received a box of Opening Pandora's Box today, opened it, and am now afraid to look at a copy. After all the editing, the proofing, the repairing; all that time that James poured into the revisions over the summer; my procrastination to get it out there; what if after all that I find a glaring mistake right on the first page? I am not sure I can tolerate it.
So...instead, I look at it across the room and am happy with the stark white cover that really epitomizes the theme of the story. I am glad that I at the last minute decided to minimize the decor of my original cover. Since this is the story of a young person climbing out of the very pits of depression, I can think of no better design than this blankness to reflect the numbness that surrounded her.
So...the cover is good. In fact, the cover is genius.
My last reading of the manuscript brought me to tears. I really like the story. I am sorry to no longer have Abby in my every waking thoughts and she will always be my favorite original character, but I am happy I can put her to rest in a happy place now.
So...what do I do now?
Check out my YA trilogy at Amazon.com.
Abby, Raspberry Beret, and Opening Pandora's Box are all available in hard copy as well as Kindle.
Wow and Viola ! I wrote a trilogy!!!!!!
