Butts Be Gone!

Since my last blog post, I’ve been a bit busy, and loving it. No more Big Fat Holiday Butts, except for the one sitting in this chair, But… let’s not go there.

I’ve been working on the back cover copy for my soon-to-be-released book, Away Over-Yonder. It’s going very well, with a little help from my friends – here’s a shout out to Carissa and Sherry, Love you Gals. I’ll be sharing the book description here with you all in the next few weeks, so stayed tuned. Very exciting.

This will be my third and final book of the my Ellers Family time-travel series: Here & Beyond.

I’ve also been working with my publisher on the cover art for the book. Here’s a shout out to Shari at Llumina Press who has to deal with a scatter brain like me, poor dear, she must be a saint. I want the covers of the three books in the series to have the same look and feel. There aren’t any people on my covers, only places to evoke time, place and feelings. The first book, Return In Time, has the silhouette of a castle at sunset – or is it sunrise? No it must be sunset, those vivid colors only seem to grace our skies when the light is leaving our sight.  The second book, Somewhere To Belong, has a castle off in the distance – or is it a simple farm house? No, it’s a castle, but is it home? I hope it evokes the feeling that somewhere off in the distance is a place to belong.

Along with all this I’ve been working on a new book, I’m at about 10,000 words. It’s a good start and I’m excited about the story. The working title is Until We Meet Again. Titles, I have found, are subject to change. I have one book that’s gone through at least half a dozen working titles, and it’s still not out yet, so the title is still subject to change. At this point, I’m thinking; Dreaming In Moonlight.  Feel free to tell me what you think.

Well, I think that’s about it. Back cover text, front cover art, new book, lots of fun. Yep, embrace the challenge and life is good.

Oh, before I forget (like I could). I got a sales report for last year for my first two books and I’ve sold over 2,000 copies. I am pleased. Thank you very much for playing in my delightful sandbox with me.

I hope and plan to get back to posting my ABCs of Romance. I’m up to letter H. I’m thinking Honorable Hank or Horny Harry, which shall it be? All so much fun.

Until we meet again… Cheers and Enjoy Always, T

We’re off to a grand start of 2013.

  2. The themes of these books seem great fun.
    I like the ‘Here and Beyond’, but it seems difficult to bring in the MacNicols without losing the impact. I would tend to favour something like:
    Here and Beyond
    The MacNicol Clan novels (or stories or tales)
    I have also had fun with a modern female protagonist thrown into a magic land centuries behind our own world – but mine is the fantasy genre.

  4. What a lovely update, Tricia. 🙂 And congratulations on the sales. You rock! I’ve loved being a small part of this journey. . . I like what Colonialist said, the title being primary and A MacNicol Clan novel being the subtitle. That way you can also do spin-off novellas and short stories. 🙂

    • Yeah, book covers are fun. It’s like dressing up pretty to go to the ball, or looking funky for a fun event. We want to make a good first impression, best foot forward and all that stuff. Love your tiara. Enjoy always, T
