It's been so cold. The only good part is that I haven't felt alone in the low temperatures. Usually this part of the country is zero degrees and everyone south of here is breaking out the fans and iced tea. I'm sorry for the rest of you--this must be a real shock.
Not that February and even March can't be cold and snowy, the odds start to decrease as we go into the year. Yay!
Yes, I'm working on Bittersweet 6. No, I don't have a title for it yet. I'm also redoing several of the covers. This should have been done before now but I haven't been able to get to everything!

Yes. They needed a facelift and I've been lifting everywhere.

Like store brands. Walmart, Stop & Shop, Best Whatever. They used to be basic, rudimentary and fairly ugly. Then something happened and these stores hired graphics designers to compete with Campbell's Soup. The brand has to be identifiable and pleasing without opening the can to see the contents.
And yet there are books with not so pleasing covers that sell and books with wonderful covers that don't.
Cover art on ebooks is rapidly becoming more sophisticated. I can honestly say I don't want to change this one again. But maybe in 2 years, all book covers will be animated and I'll have to find a way to have this woman raising and lowering the flowers to her nose.
Nothing Serious is still a cute story no matter what the cover is.
